Are Beanie Babies Worth Anything?

If your storage area looks anything like mine, there are at least 3 plastic bins full of Ty’s Beanie Babies, all tags still on. Beanie Babies were THE collectible to have in the 90’s, and I’ll never forget racing to the store each time a new ‘class’ dropped to make sure that I had them all. And the rare/exclusive ones? Don’t even get me started how much were paid for those ‘have to have thems’.

At this point, the toys hold no sentimental value and are just taking up space, and I’m considering selling them on eBay. Before I pull the trigger, I took to some research around the internet to see if this was worth my time, and the information was so interesting that I’d like to share it with all of you readers!

The bad news: the mass produced, common Beanie Babies really aren’t worth much. This pricing guide let me know that these are generally only worth $0.50-$1 apiece [https://bernurban.wordpress.com/2012/02/27/beanie-babies-value-guide/]. IMO, still worth selling them to clear up some space and make some easy cash.

The good news: if you have ‘rare’ Beanie Babies, you’re in business. Thefiscaltimes.com recently released an article noting the most valuable Beanie Babies – it’s SHOCKING! Check them out here, and listed below:

  • Employee Bear – $2,000-$3,000
  • Mystic the Unicorn – $1,800-$3,000
  • Chef Robuchon – $1,500-$2,500
  • #1 The Bear – $1,500-$2,000
  • Hong Kong Toy Fair 2010 – $800-$1,500

Talk about a payday! Always check your specific Beanie Babies if you think it is a rare one – and if the tags and quality are intact? Even better.
