It could be time to sort through your playroom...


Posted 8th March

If the lighter evenings mean one thing, it's that we're approaching spring cleaning season

Wouldn't it be great if there was a way that we could actually get a bit of money from the spring clean? Well, maybe we can...

Research, conducted by eBay.co.uk, has led to the online marketplace releasing its 'room ranking' which reveals the parts of the home that are most likely to contain items that are worth some cash.

It's time to turn your back on the attic - instead, it's the playroom which has the potential to be the main money maker, with Brits having toys that are no longer used worth a combined £171 million. 

These are the 5 rooms that are likely to have the most value hidden in plain sight:

1. Playroom
2. Bedroom
3. Living Room
4. Garage
5. Computer room

So, what can you do to make the most of these unwanted items? Well, the good news is eBay has removed payments for listings - now consumer sellers are able to sell up to 1,000 items for free!

So, what items are being sold? Well, the top 5 toy brands are:

1. Lego - over 3,600,000 listings
2. Games Workshop - over 665,000 listings
3. Funko - nearly 620,000 listings
4. Hasbro - over 996,000 listings
5. Corgi - nearly 975,000 listings

It looks like it's time to get sorting through those toy boxes...
