Here are seven most expensive toys in the world.
Diamond Barbie – $551.000
The Barbie doll is without doubt one of the most sought after toys for girls. While a regular Barbie doll shouldn’t cost a fortune, the luxurious Barbies, however, goes for the price of a whopping $551.000. The doll was sold at an auction for Breast Cancer Research in 2010.
Designed by Stefano Canturi; this Barbie doll is adorned with a choker featuring a one-carat square-cut pink diamond because she has places to go and needs to look her best. She also wears a black strapless evening dress.
This is one luxurious doll, isn’t it?
The Gold Rocking Horse – $1.28 million
For a rocking horse to be worth a huge sum of $1.28 million; it sure has to be made of pure gold!
Now the question is; will your kid appreciate and value this golden toy as much as you would? Because hey, kids are kids and wouldn’t really care much.
Jeweller Ginza Tanaka crafted the 24 carat gold rocking horse in honour of the birth of Japan’s only prince. It weighs 80 pounds and Jay-Z and Beyoncé bought their own version of the toy for Blue Ivy from the same company for around $600,000.
Jay and Bey are American royalty after all.
The Masterpiece Rubik’s Cube – $1.5 million
This is an expensive take on the classic Rubik’s Cube. Designed with 18 carat gold; each side has 185 carats of precious gems. It was produced by Diamond Cutters International in 1995.
So if you are a sucker for precious gems, and you’d rather play the game matching up 22.5 carats of amethysts, 34 carats of emeralds, and 34 carats of rubies instead of stickers on plastic, then this toy was made for you.
Though it looks like jewellery, it’s completely functional and perhaps the precious stones on it may bring good luck in solving the cube in less than a minute.
Steiff Louis Vuitton Teddy Bear – $2.1 million
The German toy company – Steiff, is known for its super expensive toys that no parent can afford.
This particular bear was sold at a 2000 Monaco auction to Jessie Kim of Korea. It now lives in the Teddy Bear Museum in Jeju, Korea. Sporting a Louis Vuitton coat and hat; its fur has real gold and its eyes are made of sapphires and diamonds.
In addition to being the most expensive, it is also the most fashionable teddy bear out there as it poses with its Louis Vuitton luggage because of course, the stylish toy needs to travel in style.
Shimansky Soccer Ball – $2.59 million
Why would you buy a soccer ball that you won’t have to kick except, of course, you want to kick around 2,640 black diamonds, 6,620 white diamonds and 3,500 African diamonds on the ground?
Going for a sum of over 2.5 million dollars; this gorgeous soccer ball took 3 months to make and was designed by Shimansky a South African jeweller known to work exclusively with diamond and tanzanite jewellery.

Lamborghini Aventador LP Model Car – $4.8 million
At $4.8 million, this toy car will cost you way more than the real thing; so if you can’t afford a real Lamborghini, then you certainly cannot afford this toy.
Taking about 500 hours to finish the model; this pricey toy features gold and platinum rims, and diamonds in its seats, steering wheel and headlights.
If you have so much money to put on something, it’s best to buy the real car for less than a million dollars and fully operational.
Madame Alexander Eloise – $5 million
The pricey Barbie may be an expensive toy; but certainly not as expensive as this one.
Created by doll designer and the toy’s namesake Madame Alexander, this stylish handmade doll sports Christian Dior cloth, Oscar de la Renta fur and Katherine Baumann accessories decorated with Swarovski crystals and 9 carats of diamonds – talk about a classy and high-class toy! She’s one out of 5; each coming with other accessories like an equally stylish dog for one.
