Products That Cost Under $5 That Made Millions of $’s


From Yahoo Finance, 7 products that cost under $5, but which made millions and much much more than that.

1. Post-it Notes – Come on we know it was not  3M’s Arthur Fry, it was Romey and Michelle who invented Post-it notes.
2. Crazy Straw
3. Slinky – What might be one of the greatest toys ever.

“What walks down stairs, alone or in pairs, And makes a slinkity sound?
A spring, a spring, a marvelous thing, Everyone knows it’s Slinky…
It’s Slinky, it’s Slinky, for fun it’s a wonderful toy
It’s Slinky, it’s Slinky, it’s fun for a girl and a boy

4. Silly Bandz
5. Pet Rock
6. Antenna Ball
Koosh Ball

Wait a minutes, I think they may have left out a couple. What about SILLY PUDDY, DUNCAN YO-YO’s. Of course I am referring to the Imperial Yo-Yo.
