Legos Are Now Worth More Than Gold.
Looking to invest your money somewhere safe? Well, you might want to head to your local toy store. According to a recent report in the UK's Telegraph, financial analysts are beginning to suggest that - when it comes to turning a profit - Legos are the new gold. Within the past 15 years, the FTSE 100 - an index of 100 companies on the London Stock Exchange - has increased in value by roughly 4.1%. And while gold investments have seen an increase 9.6% annually, LEGO sets kept in pristine condition have surpassed them with a 12% increase on average. Bottom line? Legos are an investment that packs one serious return. So what kind of LEGO sets should you be investing in? According to avid collector Ed Maciorowski (seen right, with lots of Legos), the money is in franchise picks - movies, TV shows, and even more specific product lines within the LEGO brand: "The neat thing is that all sets are retired at some point, and several hundred are retired each year a movie run ends, a licence expires or the Lego company wants to refresh its range. That means anyone with a set at home – large or small, it doesn't matter – could have quite an investment on their hands if it's in good condition, as this stuff appreciates very well in value." The most coveted LEGO set, for example, is the 2007 Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon - which originally retailed for $500 and currently goes for over a cool $4,000. However, financial analyst Laith Khalaf warns that 'trendy' investments come with much more risk than more traditional options: "The returns from Lego look pretty awesome, but investors need to beware that the value of collectibles can be vulnerable to fads. There’s absolutely no harm in buying some pieces as a hobby, and you may well make some money, but as a main building clock for your retirement, I would suggest sticking to more traditional shares and bonds." So what do YOU think? Would you take the risk of investing in LEGO sets, or would you stick more traditional options like gold?

My 90s Toys Are Better Than Yours ;)
1) Polly Pocket Polly Pocket was seriously one of the best toys I ever had. I remember when I was a little girl, I stole one and I was too little to realize what I was doing. But I went home with a Polly Pocket and I was the happiest girl ever. Although I had an impressive world of Barbie dolls and Barbie things, I think I appreciated Polly Pocket the most -- probably because I was able to take it everywhere I went. And my imagination with wild with these toys. POLLY!!! 2) Tamagotchi Yess! I vividly remember having these in elementary school. I remember the teachers had to make the ban on them, because the students (including me) were HIGHLY addicted to them. They pooped, they slept, and they grew! Since it was like taking care of a real pet, you had to pay attention to them. If you ever ignored them for a long period of time, you came back to a shit mess, or sometimes they die. :( Can we please bring these back? 3) Bop It This is also on the list of one of the most addicting games ever. I am not even sure why I was so addicted to Bop It, but it was such an intriguing game. It's basically a memory toy. I would play this game hours on end. I remember even fighting with my sister for my turn to play the game. BOP IT! TWIST IT! PULL IT! 4) Easy Bake Oven Who was the best baker in the world? I WAS. This was the only time baking came easy. I can still remember the taste of the slightly-fake-tasting brownie. Every Time I used the toy, I definitely had to have my mother around to use it. Ever heard of the burning accidents from this toy -- I can totally believe. That Easy Bake Oven got hot. Brownies, anyone? 5) FURBY Goodness, this shit was scary. But I still played with it. During the day time I was in love with Furby, during the night time, I kept one eye open -- thanks to the 80s movie, Gremlins. And since Furby was technically a furry robot, it will go through it's weird tech-y things and do things on it's own. I still kinda like you, Furby. Kinda. 6) Super Soaker One of the COOLEST toys I had as a kid. This was freakin' fun as heck! And living in MIami where there was warm weather all year long, this toy came in handy. Who's going to get soaked today?! What kind of toys did you grow up having? My childhood was at its prime during the 1990s (I am an 80s baby!) Can I just please be a kid again???
