If you're looking to make a little extra cash—or, in some cases, a lot—you might not have to look any farther than your storage closet. Don't give away priceless antiques and family heirlooms. Instead, your childhood toys can earn you a fortune.

Furby

They're staring straight into your soul. These terrifying electronic robotic toys were originally released in 1998. Did you know that brand new Furbies exclusively speak a language called "Furbish," but they start using English words and phrases over time? The stuff of nightmares, truly. Either way, if you held on to an original Furby, they might be worth as much as $900.

Strawberry Shortcake

This well-known cartoon character started off as the face of a greeting card, but the franchise soon expanded to include the Strawberry Shortcake doll, which was distributed via Kenner in 1979. Each line of characters came with freckles, red yarn curls, and a strawberry-printed bonnet. The Plum Puddin' vintage doll set is worth as much as $500 on eBay.
