Growing up in the '00s was a blissful time. Most of our thoughts were consumed by the Olsen twins' love life, how much black eyeliner was too much black eyeliner, and whether or not our jean skirt was short enough. If you kept a lot of your favorite memories from that era to remind yourself of how great it was, we don't blame you. Even better news? All of that stuff hidden under your bed—I'm talking Beanie Babies, Furbies, and even your old faithful T-Mobile Sidekick—is about to bring you some serious cash. So, before your mother threatens to take it all to Goodwill for the hundredth time, take a look through today's 40 most sought-out '00s items, ahead.
'Lizzie McGuire' Cookie Jar
An iconic Lizzie McGuire cookie jar would be worth around $150 today. Personally, I'm ready to drop some cash to spice up my kitchen decor.
Dance Dance Revolution Mario Mix
Arguably the world's best arcade game, this special edition of Dance Dance Revolution is worth $250, and that's without including the legendary GameCube console.
Polly Pocket Playsets
If somehow you attempted to go your whole childhood without losing Polly Pocket pieces, then you deserve a medal. This Rollercoaster Resort (all pieces included) now runs for $340, so I guess it does pay off to be organized as a kid?
No real-life pet, no problem! That's what the beautiful egg-shape game that was Tamagotchi was for! Special edition ones are all the rage on eBay and can go for upwards of $95.
When your real life was looking a little drab, Hasbro's Dream Life had your back. If you have a never-opened version of the game lying around, you could earn a nice $182.
Hannah Montana Malibu Beach House
Miley/Hannah's Malibu pad was #goals, so obviously getting the Barbie replica of it was a must-have. Nobody's perfect (jokes!), but if yours is still in reach, you could make over $200 on the play set.
Hot Wheels Highway 35 World Race Ultimate Track Set
Only 1,000 of these bad boys were ever made, so if you have your hands on one, consider yourself lucky. Since they're so rare, they can sell for up to $4,500. (Yes, you read that correctly.)
Mary-Kate and Ashley Dolls
Was it a '00s sleepover if a movie from the dynamic twin duo didn't make an appearance during the night? While the twins' films are easier to come by, their dolls are not. These two, pictured here, are worth a very normal price of $308.
Marie Antoinette Barbie
This limited-edition Marie Antoinette doll is extravagant, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Her shoes aren't plastic but porcelain for crying out loud! The one-of-a-kind doll is worth some serious dough, ringing in at $1,100.
Wii Disney Sing It Family Hits Nintendo Wii Game
Karaoke but make it at-home. This game came in a variety of versions, from Disney Channel hits to Glee favorites. It's not worth as much as others on this list, but $70 is still some serious money!
Before iPhone's were all the rage, you very desperately wanted a sidekick. The way it kick-flipped it's way up to reveal the keyboard was the textbook definition of a chef's kiss. If you're feeling like trading in your iPhone for one of these, it's going to ring you up to $280.
Monopoly: Simpsons Treehouse Of Horror
Based on the famous Simpson episode of the same name, this favorite board game gets a creepy cartoon spin featuring six glow-in-the-dark pieces! Maybe that's why it's worth $300?
Before Teen Vogue came along, there was Your Magazine, a.k.a. YM. The publication stopped running in 2004, but old copies featuring stars from Ashanti to Amanda Bynes can earn you around $45 an issue!
Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP
Road trips with your family went by quickly when you played your Nintendo. Special editions of this gaming device can go for several hundred dollars, but the most prized possession is the Gold Zelda Minish Cap, currently on sale for $12,000.
Remember these?! The interactive house game made you excited to get your own pad with your besties. Surprisingly, these are still sold today, but if you have the OG ones hanging around, they could be worth up to $143!
Froot Loops Cereal Straws
If somehow you have a box of these discontinued and now most likely expired breakfast snack, feel free to sell it! Someone is doing so for $10,000, so, uh, anything is possible.
Bop It Extreme Mini Keychain
You didn't know stress until you were at the highest speed of Bop It on the playground, and everyone was watching. The mini version of the game, seen here, goes for as high as $200 today.
Easy Bake Oven
Thanks to this aesthetically-pleasing oven, any sugar-overloaded cake or cookie was possible! If you have one from the '90s in your grasps, you're going to earn some more dough, but this special-edition Bratz one is worth $129.
Apple iPod Nano
The life-changing music device doesn't go for much as you would think. But if you never opened yours from the package (who hurt you?!), a nice $1,000 could be coming to your bank account in the future.
As much as I love my Netflix account, there was something about browsing the aisles of Blockbuster on a Friday evening that really makes me teary-eyed. Membership cards from the video-renting giant go for up $2,000 today.
Care Bears Tea Set
The finest tea set money could buy. Okay, not really, but the class level you felt from drinking out of this was off the charts. If you never got into yours, you can sell it for around $100 on eBay!
CASIO Baby-G Watches
Remember the power your watch held? The time-telling accessory still knows how to make a statement, and this special edition Dolphin Whale model rings up a value of $660.
Bratz Wild Wild West Dolls
There were two types of people growing up: Those that played with Barbies and those that played with Bratz. Boxed collections of the fashionable dolls are worth up to $1,000 today.
LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon
What was childhood without stepping on a LEGO piece and immediately screaming in pain after? Hardcore builders sought after the special-edition Star Wars creation called the Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon. It's currently going for $7,199.00 on eBay.
Passion Fruit Furby
The Furby hype was real in the '90s and early '00s despite the creepy vibe they give off. (Have you seen those eyes?!) The White Passionfruit fluffy friend is valued at $850.
A robotic dog that lit up and danced to a song's rhythm? Iconic! Unfortunately, the gem stopped being sold in 2009 and currently goes for $12 to $190, depending on its edition.
Over 25 billion of these cards have been sold worldwide, but that doesn't mean there aren't some rare ones out there still! Collections of the popular Japanese cards can go anywhere from $500 to $1,000.
The idea of hearing one to two minutes of your favorite song from artists like Britney Spears and NSYNC seems silly, thanks to gems like YouTube and Spotify. Regardless, you can sell your HitClips collection for up to $450.
Summertime was a blast when you got your hands on one of these. Today, the water gun is still a popular item, but older versions can be worth anywhere from $300 to $450.
Would it really be a list about the '00s if Beanie Babies weren't on here? This toy, celebrating the year 2000, is currently selling for $11,100. Insane!
Barbie got a fashionable makeover when they revealed the MyScene dolls. Playing their dress up games on Everythinggirl.com was everything you wanted and more. Some of the dolls, if still in their original packaging, are worth close to $500.
A piece of plastic (that was rather cute) floating in water that talked? Talk about revolutionary! A box filled with the once-popular toy is valued at $50 currently.
Bath & Body Works Art Stuff
Beauty routines in the '00s were nothing without Bath & Body Works Art Stuff. The glitter-packed sprays were precisely the right amount of extra every 13-year-old needed. A full bottle of the stuff can be yours for just $50 if you're in the mood to feel nostalgic.
Littlest Pet Shop
The smallest pet you ever owned, probably? At the San Diego Comic-Con in 2009, they gave some lucky fans this masked superhero cat and made it one of the most expensive pieces today, valued at $800.
'High School Musical' Board Games
Mystery Date was elite, and that's mainly because it was possible, even if it was fictional, to date Troy Bolton. If he and all these pieces are still in the box, you could get $200 for the prized board game.
McDonald's Happy Meal Toys
French fries were eaten, playgrounds were explored, and you and your siblings fought over who had the best McDonald's toy. If you had restraint and didn't open yours, some toys like the Bumblebee TY Teenie have a price value of $2,000.
Neopets Petpet Plushies
You + your parents computer + Neopets.com = the ideal afternoon in 2005. Plush collections of the popular fictional animals could bring you $150, if they're in good condition.
Barbie Glamour Vacation Jet
Forever mad at myself that my sister and I thought this was the perfect toy to take outside in the rain!! If we didn't make that mistake, we would've been $480 richer.
Scholastic book fairs were capital-L Lit when you snagged a copy of the famous funny word game. If you didn't get into them, a pristine copy is worth around $120.
The more conservative doll of the bunch originally retailed in Target stores for anywhere between $15 to $20. As of 2019, no new dolls are being made, so it's the perfect time to sell the ones you have hidden somewhere in your attic. A set of five goes for over $100.
