If you rummaged through your childhood bedroom, what types of toys would you find? A couple Furbies? An entire bucket of Beanie Babies? A dying Tamagotchi?
Well, if you find any Cabbage Patch Kids left from your glorious childhood days, your bank account might be very happy you held onto them. The adorable (yet sort of creepy) little baby dolls that you collected as a child could now be worth a pretty penny.
People are starting to sell their prized Cabbage Patch Kid dolls for thousands of dollars. So now you don't have to feel weird about keeping a whole lot of old baby dolls in your basement. It might be creepy, but it sure will pay off.
The start of something new
Cue the riotsThese dolls became so popular that there were riots that occurred while people waited in line to get their hands on one. You better believe that if little Susie didn't get one for Christmas, there was going to be serious hell to pay.

Do you still have yours?
