Default Re: These Kits as Collector's Items

Years ago I read that the 'Slinky" would someday become a valuable collector's item. I bought several and still have them in their original box with the original price tag in hopes of selling them some day at a profit. That was about twenty years ago, maybe a little more. You can still buy the steel 'Slinky' exactly like the ones I have stored away as an 'investment'. LOL.
Maybe after I'm gone and my great grandchildren are my age today they'll say, "Hey, look what grandpa had. Maybe we can sell 'em." And they'll make a profit.

Same goes for our China Girls. They might, or might not fall into the collectors catagory. If they're old enough they'll bring a price but don't hold your breath or look for that to happen in your lifetime.
