Kid keeps crap, adult sells as treasure

Probably extremely easy movie identification question: A genie or something similar tells a kid to hold on to all the toys and collectibles of his youth (rather than leaving home and getting a job). The child as an adult is extremely poor and speaks to the same genie, angry for receiving such poor advice. The adult later sells his collection, becoming extremely rich and bringing delight to the community with his nostalgic toys.

It felt kind of like an episode from Creepshow or Outer Limits and was probably filmed in the late 80s or early 90s. It's possibly from a TV show rather than a movie.
