Vintage Fisher Price Toys to Sell on Ebay

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

There are many vintage Fisher Price toys that sell on Ebay. Surprisingly, there are many people who still have the toys from their childhood, boxes and all! As a person who grew up in a Queens, New York apartment, outgrown things were given to others, donated, or tossed. Those who still have their childhood memories also have money waiting to be earned.

As Baby Boomers get older, they wax nostalgic for the toys they once loved as a child. As time goes on, they get increasingly harder to find. Ebay is an outlet where people sell old Fisher Price toys to bidders wanting to reclaim their childhood memories.

To get the most money for your old Fisher Price toys, several factors come into play. First, there is the condition of the item. New and unopened vintage toys (and yes, people do have them) will fetch top dollar.

Having the original box adds value to the toy. The better the condition of the box, the more money it will bring.

A complete play set adds more value to wanting bidders. While incomplete sets do sell for good sums of cash, you get more for an intact vintage toy.

Many vintage Fisher Price toys also have stickers. If the stickers are in good condition, the higher the auction will end.

If you found some of your old toys in Grandma's attic, before you go ahead and list them, do a "Completed Items" search on Ebay and see what the winning bid was. You may want to write a bunch of them down or print them out so you can compare it to your set.

There might also be some items that are exactly the same as you have. Read the descriptions on each unsold item to try and determine why they did not sell.

Many times when a vintage Fisher Price toy goes unsold, it is because the opening bid was too much or the "Buy It Now" price was deemed too high. Any item on Ebay will sell only if someone wants it, and everyone wants it for the best price.

After doing your research, determine what the lowest price you will accept on your item. You can chance the auction and start low, and just deal with it if it does not get bid up higher. Or you can make a "Reserve" price to guarantee that it will only be sold at a price you can live with.
