    You didn't really screw him out of $1000, that's the max you'll make after spending hours testing these things then marketing them and shipping them individually. He wasn't going to do that work. Realistically you could end up making as little as a couple hundred dollars for 10+ hours of effort, where he got the 25 for just saying yes.

    What you paid him was fair. They're plastic toys, they're real worth is close to nothing. The fact people will pay $50 for any of them just shows how dumb people are.

    It's not worth a $1000.- until you have that $1000.- in your hand.

    Kid - 1

    You - 0 (minus $25, actually)

    Yeah, sounds like you intentionally short changed a kid. Not cool.

    It's obviously fine to offer less than what they're worth (you're shopping around garage sales, looking for profit, after all), but $25 out of $1000? That's a bit much.

    It'd be different if you weren't aware of the value before you bought them, or if it was an adult, but you knew exactly what you were doing and it was a young kid who didn't know any better.

    Taking advantage of a dumb kid is a total dick move.

    You're pretty much the bad guy from Toy Story 2.

    There's a reason legally incapable minors can't make commercial deals.

    The fault is on his mom though, since she gave her ok.

    His mom is ignorant and a dumbass. How did she not know what she spent money on for the kid? She has to have known how much she paid initially for those items.

    You are a dick tho.

    The kids mom is the idiot for telling you to negotiate with a 10 year old.

    The mom just wanted the shit out of her house. $25 is a fortune to a 10 year old but you should've given him more.
