If you’re a toy hoarder, you may be coming into some cash soon, especially if you have held on to this original tree house toy.

Kids growing up in the 70’s and 80’s will remember the super-popular Kenner Family Tree House, which caused a major craze throughout the world.

This was basically a plastic tree with a button on top of the tree. When you give the button a push, a three-roomed house was revealed, with a staircase, garage, swing and even an elevator.

The tree was the home for a whole range of figurines and accessories which came bundled with the toy.

Well, it may be over 40 years old, but the iconic Kenner Family Tree House is still a much-wanted item for collectors.

You can find various listings for the item on eBay, ranging up to a couple of hundred dollars for the Vintage item, complete with original box and accessories.

So may be it’s time to rustle through the garage or attic and check if you still have an original tree house. Although your kids may love it so much, that they’ll beg you not to sell it.

One lesson from this – it can obviously pay off financially to hang on to our kid’s toys. You never know what’s going to be in fashion in 50 years time. You could be sitting on a potential gold mine.
