Turning toys into dollars

INVERNESS, Ala. (WIAT) — Toy dolls like Barbie and action figures like G. I. Joe have been around for decades. Toy collectors, who have some of the older models on hand, may have a chance to earn some extra cash, if they’re willing to part with them. That’s the driving force behind the FX Toy Show.

Organizers are in Birmingham looking to appraise toys and pay top dollar for the most valuable.

“Most people that played with toys as children and collect them now as adults they’re parents and grandparents have those toys up in their attics and basements and they’re just sitting there, and most people dont even realize those toys have some value.” - Mark Leinberger

If you’re interested in showing off your collection, appraisers will be on hand from 10am-6pm at the Hyatt Place in Inverness Saturday and Sunday.
