The 36 Most Expensive Beanie Babies That Could Probs Cover Your Rent Until You Die

“Alexa, play ‘Whole Lotta Money,’ by BIA.”

I know there’s a lot going on in the world right now, but I need to ask you a very important question: Where are all of your Beanie Babies? Because those small, not-so-plush, plastic-bean-filled animal things you had in the ’90s are now worth LOTS of freaking MONEY. Call your parents, people, this is not a drill!

Wait, before we continue on to the sexy topic of Beanie Baby value, there is a catch—only v specific Beanies actually rake in the big bucks. Sorry, I probs should have started with that, but it’s way less exciting. A lot of the über-expensive Beanies you come across on eBay and other resale sites are priced based on bids and not on value. However, if your Beanies are in ~pristine~ condition and you can prove their rarity (like certain color combos, if it was made for a special historical moment or is a limited edition), you’ll definitely be able to make some serious cash.

Still not sure? In addition to this super-comprehensive pricing guide, you can get actual advice from tons of Beanie Baby experts via Facebook groups or Reddit threads before selling your collection. Lucky for you, I’m giving you a tiny head start. After going into a deep part of eBay I didn’t know existed until recently, I found 36 Beanie Babies that could skyrocket (mildly, but still) your net worth. Let us know what you do with the money!*

*The correct answer is share.

1
this iconic one
The End Bear
Ty

Fun fact: This bear was released when TY *officially* stopped making its iconic plush toys in 1999. Pour one out for the end of an era and the beginning of the truly wild resale market.

2
this sneaky one
Sly Fox
Ty

I feel like we’re always told to steer clear of a sly fox but…this one from 1996 is worth $1,000. Priorities!

3
this peaceful one
Peace Bear
Ty

Legend has it that each Peace Bear has a totally unique tie-dye pattern. Still, would an extra $600 bring me peace? Why, yes, yes it would.

4
this signature one
Signature Bear
Ty

It’s simple, it’s classic, and it’s worth about as much as a new computer. Do with that information what you will.

5
this Irish one
McDonald’s Erin Bear
Ty

I hope all of you who got this Erin Bear for free in your Happy Meal held on to it in its original packaging because it’s literally worth $5,000 now.

6
this rare one
Patti the Platypus
Ty

Please do not ask me why this (adorable) pink platypus is worth $7,000 because I literally don’t know. But hey, Get! Your! Money!

7
this royal one
Princess Bear
Ty

The 1997 bear dedicated to Princess Diana is not as rare as people say (judging by the hundreds of eBay listings for it). But it’s definitely worth the most. I mean, holy spirit above, this person’s about to be richer than…everyone I know IRL. 

8
this big beaked one
Scoop
Ty

Selling one of these babies couldn’t pay off your mortgage or anything, but let’s not be picky, people! $450 dollars sounds like a huge wardrobe update to me. 

9
this star-spangled one
McDonald’s Glory Bear
Ty

Another late-’90s McDonald’s exclusive that could put an extra $4,000 in your pocket. Are we sensing a pattern here? Never throw ANYTHING away!

10
this friendly bull
Snort
Ty

I think this is a bull? I’m not really sure, I just know that if you have one and it’s slightly imperfect (this means it was one of the first of its kind!), then a pretty little direct deposit is in your future.

11
this not-so-curly one
Curly Bear
Ty

If you can give me a convincing explanation as to why this straight-haired bear is named Curly, I’ll double the $5,000 that it’s worth. Well, maybe not, but at least you’ll still get something!

12
this wide-eyed one
Inky
Ty

New goal in life: Try to be a bit more like Inky. I mean, look at that smile!

13
this innocent aquatic one
Jolly
Ty

At this point, please just call your parents and pray that they’ve kept everything from your childhood in like-new condition. This walrus? $1,200! Are you seeing this?

14
this romantic one
Valentina
Ty

This pretty pink bear was originally made for Valentine’s Day, so I think it’s only right that you use the $3,500 you make when you sell it to buy something extra special for someone you love. (Hint: That includes yourself.)

15
this celebratory one
Millenium Bear
Ty

This bear was made to celebrate the start of the new millennium (Y2K, baby!) in 1999. It won’t be worth much if there’s nothing wrong with it, but with some tag errors? You can expect around $1,800.

16
this pepé le pew one
Stinky
Beanie Babies

Apparently, what makes this skunk so valuable are all the mistakes on the tags, although I’d say the name “Stinky” does a fair enough job of marketing it.

17
this red and rich one
Rover
Ty

Rover here was born on May 30, 1996, and has already gotten a net worth of $5,000! Tip: Pick his brain before you list him on eBay.

18
this patriotic one
Libearty
Ty Beanie Babies

If I had that much money lying around somewhere, I’d probably shell it out too for this little one for that name alone.

19
this ocean wanderer
Lips
Ty

Credited on one tag as Lips the Fish and on another as Tiny the Chihuahua, what probably makes this Beanie so valuable is the identity crisis it’s having.

20
this quacky one
Jake the Mallard Duck
Ty

I know, I know. Jake just seems too cute to give away. Oh, FYI, he’s worth $3,700. Your choice!

21
this crabby one
Claud the Crab
Ty

Claud the Crab. How classy! How chic! How expensive!

22
this wild one
Blackie the Bear
Ty

Happen to have a Cubbie Bear too? Sell them together and up your price.

23
these red roosters
Strut and Baby Strut
Ty

See what I mean? This big sis/little sis duo could easily cover a few months’ rent.

24
this Canadian one
McDonald’s Maple Bear
Ty

If some former McDonald’s employee has a bunch of these hidden somewhere, I hope they know they’re RICH rich.

25
this Nemo-looking one
Goldie the Goldfish
Ty

*cue Fergie voice* Hit it, Goldie!

26
this Y2K one
2K Bear
Ty

This bear was officially released in 1999 but was advertised as the first Beanie Baby with a birth date in the year 2000. I don’t quite understand the logic, but I don’t think I’m supposed to. 

27
this absurdly cute one
Bones
Ty

Okay, I would understand if you didn’t want to give Bones up for sale. I mean, look how precious!

28
these lucky ones
Lucky Ladybugs
Ty

If I pulled this trio out of my toy box, I would feel VERY lucky. $1,200? Yes, please!

29
this pristine one
Sparky
Ty

A rare white star on the tag apparently gives this Sparky a certain je ne sais quoi that makes it worth seven figures. The seller also says it’s “museum quality”…whatever that means!

30
this charming threesome
Large Peking, Fortune, and China
Ty

The fact that they can sell for $98,000 is truly everything that is wrong and right in this world. 

31
this striped moneybag one
Bubbles
Ty

Is there a cuter name than Bubbles? There is not. Is there anything cuter than earning nearly $90,000—which is how much this guy is going for on eBay—for a retired stuffed fish? There is not.

32
these wolves of Wall Street
Hippity, Hoppity, and Floppity
Ty

This trio of bunnies is going for roughly a year of college tuition. Here is a video of how to appraise YOUR Hippity, which I’m sure is totally (probably?) helpful if you watch it.

33
this ironic one
Hope
Ty

Please enjoy this live reenactment of me listing old Beanie Babies on eBay.

34
this anglophile one
Britannia the Bear
Ty

God save the Queen Bear, etc., etc.

35
this basic fall queen
Gobbles
Ty

Have a happy Thanksgiving by selling Gobbles and booking a nice beach vacay instead of a turkey dinner.

36
this truly perplexing one
Spangle
Ty

The American My dream is selling this guy for $4,000 and going shopping.
