What are the world's most expensive toys?

Toys were originally made for children but in recent decades many adults have started collecting exclusive limited edition toys inspired by their favourite manga or comic. Here are 5 of the world’s most expensive toys:

Teddy Bear
Created by Steiff, a German teddy bear company, the world’s most expensive teddy bear is worth a staggering $2.1 million! The bear’s mouth is made of solid gold and its fur is made from gold thread. The teddy bear sports jeweled eyes featuring sapphire pupils with diamond irises.

Barbie Doll
US toymaker Mattel collaborated with renowned jewellery maker Stefan Canturi to create a look for the Canturi Barbie. Valued at $540,780, Barbie’s necklace features 3 carats of white diamonds arranged in a Cubist style and surrounding a rare pink diamond from the Argyle mine in Australia. The centrepiece is emerald cut that weighs 1 carat. A ring adorned with another diamond decorates her right hand.

Mr Potato Head
Hand-jeweled from the plastic ears to the potato body, the most expensive Mr Potato Head carries over 50,000 Swarovski crystals in seventeen different colours. He was featured in the Neiman Marcus catalogue in 2004 and sold for $8,000 apiece.

Handheld Video Game
The world’s most expensive Gameboy is made of 18 carat gold and the display screen is surrounded by diamonds. Creared by Aspreys Of London, this handheld video game is worth $25,000.

Toy Robot
Japanese toymakers Bandai teamed up with well-known jewellers Ginza Tanaka to create a toy robot made almost entirely of platinum and a 0.15 carat diamond embedded in the camera eye on the figure’s head. Known as the Gundam Fix Platinum, the robot is valued at $250,000.
