VHS Tapes Turn a Profit for Fans

If there is one thing that Disney fans are weak for, it’s nostalgia. There is something about Disney that reminds us of the tender, joyous years of our childhood. Getting to return to that child-like state is a very special experience, and in many ways, Disney capitalizes on this to maintain lifelong fans of the company.

In the 1980s through the 2000s, most fans experienced Disney movies through VHS tapes. When DVDs were introduced and the world became digital, many families got rid of their old VHS tapes. Now that streaming is so popular, many people do not even keep physical copies of movies at all.

However, there may be a payout for the select few who held on to their old VHS tape collections for so many years.
