A collection of Super Soakers.

Owning one of these was GOALS as a kid. Rich kids? They not only got one, but their siblings would get one too so that they wouldn’t have to share.

13.

Playmobil toys and play sets.

These were one of those toy brands had so many play sets and accessories for it, that it was hard to keep track of what they sold — so, it was always amazing when you’d go to your rich friend’s house and discover all sorts of things you didn’t know they made for Playmobil.

14.
