If you're the type of person that took great care of their toys as a child and kept them, then you could be looking at some serious cash.

A new report from American toy review site, TheToyZone, reveals the iconic '90s toys we loved as kids that are worth a fortune today. 

According to TheToyZone, Beanie Babies are the most prized plush toys, with nine out of 10 of the highest priced toys being Beanie Babies.

The report reviewed 340 toys using the price guide search engine Marvin, analysing the collectibles from the era. 

For each toy line, up to 10 of the most expensive items were included. The final list consists of 343 toys, all released in the 1990s. 

Rainbow the Chameleon Beanie Baby from 1997 is the toy that will earn you the most coin, raking in a whopping $50,000 USD ($64,800), followed by  Valentina, $29,999 USD ($38,900), Maple the Bear $18,000 USD ($23,300), Peanut the Royal Blue Elephant $15,000 USD, ($19,400). 

The one non-Beanie Baby in the top 10 is a copy of the Goldeneye 007 game for Nintendo 64, selling for $14,499 USD ($18,800)

The most expensive action figure is Scratch from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Playmates which is worth $5,850 USD ($7590).
