I read this one a lot when I was little. This is a first edition. No idea if it will ever be worth what Where The Wild Things Are is, but still cool to have. Not sure I'll see the movie they based on it.
The other day, I went to visit Mom and Dad. I forget for what, but I had a secondary goal of trying to see if I could find our copy of Where The Wild Things Are. I remember reading the book when I was little. It was such a fun book. A bit crazy to think the first edition is worth a huge chunk of money now. And good reason to find it. Sadly, our copy isn't a first edition, but while going through the books, I came across some interesting first editions.
Don't tell me you didn't have this book? Sometimes it's surprising these books held up as good as they did given there were four kids reading it.
Oh yeah, we are talking Star Wars and Indiana Jones picture books. These ones I had to be a bit more delicate with. They were published the same time the movies were. The binding is struggling to stay together.
But it's not just books that I found at Mom and Dad's. There's Michael Jackson, original Care Bears and Pound Puppies and Kitties. Mom had the Pound Kitties and Puppies for sale at a craft show for fifty scents. We joked that someone would buy them and we'd see the person on Antiques Roadshow and learn the toys were worth thousands. No one bought them though so we still have them. I kept my favorite one during my childhood. I called her Maggie.
What about you guys? Got any cool but oldie possessions lying around? Or even something you got rid of and learned is now worth money? I had the She-Ra toys and saw an article that stated they were worth some serious dough if they were in the box. I'm not sad to read that though. The memories I made are priceless after all. ;)
