Here's the man with the answers, the toy guy, Chris Byrne. He is editor-at-large for Toys and Family Entertainment as well as Royalties, and a contributing editor of Toy Wishes. Chris, it's good to have you here.
CHRIS:Thank you.
...
CHRIS:Not always.
...
CHRIS:Absolutely.
...
CHRIS:Well, it's certainly worth something if somebody's willing to pay for it.
...
CHRIS:Well, certainly if they haven't been played with, the 25-year-old Care Bear is going to be worth more because everybody's thinking about them. The 25th Anniversary Bear itself is positioned as a collectible.
...
CHRIS:Well absolutely. If you're buying a child a toy the last think you want to do is say, "Here's a toy we're going to put it on the shelf and you can look at it. What fun is that?
RON: If you think something's going to be collectible, should you buy one for your child and one for yourself?
CHRIS:Well, definitely; I mean if you want to be the collector, that's great. But your children should have the fun of playing with the toys.
RON: How do we know when somebody puts on packaging "Special Collectors Edition" that that's really what it's going to become? We don't know how many of those they've manufactured.
CHRIS:Well, that's true, and Barbie is a great example.
...
CHRIS:And you can find them on eBay, and they only made several hundred of them and it's got a magical thing where the character transforms when you open the press kit.
...
CHRIS:Absolutely.
...
CHRIS:Not that often. I buy it because I like it.
