Furbies are making a comeback and your old ones may be worth a fortune

Regarded as one of the most innovative and interactive inventions of its time, Furby introduced the world to a new kind of robotic toy. The innovative toy made its debut in 1998 by Tiger Electronics, and at the time, it was inventors first time at creating an in-home robot that could talk to you.

The big-eyed and furry electronic creature immediately rose to fame, thus creating the Furby era. People from all over the world were obsessed. The high demand led to Furby prices skyrocketing upwards of $100. In short, Furby was the “it” toy of the late ’90s.

Fast forward to nearly 20 years later and the Furby has made quite the comeback. While Tiger Electronics revamped the nostalgic toy in 2012, the older, more classic models are now valued at unbelievable amounts. Sites such as Go Furby serve as a resource for Furby owners and collectors. Based on the site’s value chart, the vintage toy ranges in value from $25 to over $500.

If you have a few Furbies stored away in your house somewhere and want to get rid of them, now’s the time. Check out the slideshow up top to see what some of the most valuable ones are going for on eBay.com.
