When it comes to classic toys, Fisher-Price is at the top of the list. Founded in 1930, the popular child’s toy line came to fame in the 1960s with their incredibly popular Little People line. These vintage Fisher-Price toys featured adorable little figures packed inside fun and educational playsets. While most of the toys were staples in households from the late '60s up to the early '90s, it turns out those old toys you used to play can sell for a pretty decent amount today.
Parents often say that one of the greatest things about Fisher-Price toys is the simple fact that they help promote active learning rather than passive playing: kids can learn by pressing certain buttons or listening to fun songs that teach the alphabet, colors, shapes, numbers, and important life skills. Another great thing about Fisher-Price toys is that they are affordable and are suited for all age groups. But while some sets aren’t worth much, some rare Fisher-Price toys could be worth a small fortune.
Here you’ll get a look at some of the most valuable Fisher-Price toys that were sold on eBay, as well as the exact amount they went for. If you have any old or collectible toys lying around the house, you may want to consider putting them up for sale. Who knows if you’re currently sitting on some of the most expensive Fisher-Price toys ever made.

Sold for: $289.99
Year made: 1970
Definitely on the older side of Fisher-Price sets, the Action Garage was part of the original Little People line and only featured a handful of accessories.
A recent eBay seller sold their playset for just under $300 in Dec 2019. While it appeared to still be in good condition, a key reason why this set sold so quickly was the fact that it included all the original accessories. The Action Garage includes the wooden people, elevator, the garage, and a red and white gas hose are all definitely hard to come by these days.
