1) Beauty & The Beast VHS - £495

This recently re-made classic could actually earn you a frightening sum of money. With the VHS platform well and truly a thing of the past, they're now becoming the 'in thing' with collectors. As with vinyl records, VHS tapes are slowly but surely transitioning onto the vintage market. Like most households who had kids growing up in the 90s, you've surely got this gem hidden somewhere!?

2) Aladdin Plush Genie Soft Toy - £700

It's pretty amazing to think that a plush toy could earn you up to £700, but it's true! If you're struggling for cash and need to make a quick buck, it might be worth having a look around the attic for one of these Genie toys. The plush may well earn you a nice amount of money, especially considering that filming will soon begin on the new live feature Aladdin, with Will Smith replacing the late, great Robin Williams as the Genie.

Rumour has it that the new film will be appearing in May 2019, so we've still got just under a year to wait for the reboot. Starring alongside Will Smith will be Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.

4)  Pocahontas Doll & Gift Set - £210

Received this incredibly 90s looking gift? You're quids in if so! This model of Disney's Native American princess will fetch you a tidy sum, with some estimates coming in at just over £200 for the plastic doll set. Whilst there are a few versions of the doll out there, this original set with Pocahontas in her 'Sun Colours' dress is actually worth quite a lot of money. She may be hidden in a box, or floating round a riverbend ...

5) Adult Nala Plush Soft Toy - £112

With that in mind, it may be worth checking if you've got any form of memorabilia from the Pride Lands lying around as prices look set to increase in the next few months!

6) Tyco Ariel Doll - £53

This Tyco classic is a gem that should certainly not be left 'under the sea', as it were. One of Disney's answers to Barbie came in the form of this plastic doll Ariel, complete with mermaid tail for when she's fed up of living on dry land. Can you remember whether you received one of these red-haired dolls as a Christmas present? If so, don't leave it in your attic to gather seaweed! Current estimates suggest you could get around £53 for it.

7) Beauty & The Beast Belle Watch - £148

8) Mickey Mouse Water Game - £155

This is one of the more bizarre inclusions on our list of Disney items. You'd probably remember if you received one of these as a present! I've been staring at this image for a good minute and a half and still can't figure out what it does. That being said, it certainly attracts a healthy sum, so collectors must be keen to get their hands on it. Anything old school emblazoned with the iconic Mickey Mouse is set to attract attention, so if you think you might have one of these in the attic then it's certainly worth a look.

9) Cartoon Classics Cartoon Game - £45

Imagine Scene It, but rewind 20 years. The game included a VHS (cutting edge technology at the time), with three different games for kids (and unwilling parents) to play, including Mickey’s Bingo, Feeling Ducky, and Every Which Way. Do you remember playing this on a cold winter's night?

The board game will currently fetch you around £45, which is enough money to buy a half-decent collection of DVDs or some kind of Playstation game instead!

10) Toy Story Talking Woody Doll - £212

But would you have the heart to get rid of your Woody toy? We all know how jealous Woody got when Andy received his new Buzz Lightyear, so imagine how he'd feel about being flogged on Ebay. That said, the toys are currently fetching around £212 online so you may well decided that it's well past time for both of you to move on.

Otherwise, Woody dolls make a great gift to pass on to kids and grandkids, especially since the franchise has continued to grow from strength to strength.

12) Pocahontas Jewelry Box - £30 

Looks like something you'd in a toddlers make up playset, but this little piece could potentially fund dinner for two and a bottle of red...or maybe even three of them if you go to M&S and get the Dine in for £10 deal! If you were prone to playing dress up, and applying terrible make up as a toddler, it might be worth having a rummage for this make-up set.

*

13) Little Mermaid Water Sprinkler - £70

De' seaweed is always greener, when you make a few bob, as Sebastian might well say. £70 for something you've no doubt used once on Christmas day before discarding in the loft under some old towels, isn't bad going. Disney have been ingenious here, basically repackaging and selling the garden hose with lots of nice pictures of Ariel and friends included on the cover. We're less convinced by this one Disney, but business is business.

14) Buzz Lightyear Doll - £354

So which side were you on, Woody or Buzz? If you didn't manage to find your original Woody doll, then you may well have stumbled across a Buzz Lightyear instead. The toy that tells a tale of many childhoods, it's no surprise that there's three figures on offer for this piece of history. Again, I wouldn't be getting rid of this little belter. Who knows, you could be looking at a lot more in 10 years time!

Disney actually made a rather impressive-looking supersonic jet toy to go along with the series, which will now fetch up to £200.

Quackers really, to think that the TV show it is based on only lasted 12 months! There were rumours it was making a 2018 comeback, but these have been quashed. Still, it's worth putting on the market at this price.

18) Kissing Simba & Nala Teddy - £70

You will certainly be able to feel the love tonight if you cash in on these two love birds. Again though, is it a keepsake? Maybe, but if you're looking to make a quick buck, then your prayers have definitely been answered! This iconic scene will stay in Disney fans' hearts forever more, so it will always be sought after.
