Collecting toys has been a lucrative pursuit over the past years; incredibly, some LEGO sets and Star Wars toys which have to be in mint condition and in the box, have outperformed gold and oil as investments.

Childcare.co.uk founder Richard Conway said: "It’s amazing to see just how much people are spending on these toys – both old and new!

"However, I think if you’re a parent at least you can see the countless pounds spent on toys every year as an investment of sorts."
