Popeye Toys are a Big Hit

Did you know that Popeye—the famous movie and cartoon star—was created more than 90 years ago?

While it may have been a while since you last thought about Popeye, one thing is for sure: many collectibles and toys associated with this character remain valuable.

Let’s take a look at a few Popeye items from the past that have recently sold at auction:

•    Popeye mechanical roller skate toy: $920

•    Popeye and Olive Oyl hand car toy: $748

•    Popeye face mask: $403

•    Popeye cyclist toy: $1,093

•    Popeye the Sailor toy (boat): $3,738

•    Popeye heavy hitter toy: $3,450

While these toys were all produced during the 1930s or 1940s, that doesn’t mean that others don’t carry as much—if not more—value.

Since Popeye toys aren’t nearly as popular as many others, such as Barbie and GI Joe, they often hold a higher value. If you have any rare pieces in your attic, basement, or storage unit, carefully pull them out for examination. You may come to find that they’re worth a nice chunk of change!
