With the stock market you always incur risk with your potential gain.  But what if investing in stocks were made obsolete by investing in say - toys?  Would you still risk your money?? 

A new study found instead of investing in your 401k, mutual funds, stocks, gold, oil futures, or your nephew's kick starter startup, the smartest thing you can invest your money into is Legos. Seriously!

According to experts, Lego is constantly retiring it's sets much like Disney does with it's movies, which makes them become rare and valuable. Their prices go up a very steady and predictable 12% year over year. That's a much better and more predictable return than any of the traditional investing methods.

Of course, there are always a few catches, so watch out. Like, if the market ever drops out for Legos like it did for say Beanie Babies, you're would be broke in a hurry. And, even worse, you have to keep the Legos sealed in the box and couldn't play with them.

But if you're looking to diversify your portfolio, you could do a lot worse than snapping up some of the new "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" Lego sets.
