1st Generation Beanie Babies

1st Generation Beanie Babies that have the 1st Generation Hang Tag can be worth money.  Those are some of the most rare Beanie Babies available on the secondary market and some can sell for hundreds of dollars even today.  The Beanie Babies with the 1st Generation Hang Tag were some of the very first Beanie Babies to be produced in early 1994. Many of the Beanie Babies on this page will continue to be made throughout the generations of Beanie Babies. The ones with the 1st Generation Hang Tag are worth the most, whereas versions with different tags can be almost worthless. The tags make a huge difference in the value of your Beanie Babies and be sure to look them over closely before you think you have a rare plush toy.

1st Generation Hang Tag Faq:

  • 1st Generation Hang Tags are flat and do not open up like a book.
  • 1st Gen. Hang Tag Beanie Babies were made in either China or Korea.
  • Tags that are still attached to the Beanie Baby and in good condition are worth more.
  • Buyers of early Beanie Babies would often remove the tag. BB’s without tags are worth less.
  • 1st Generation U.K. Beanie Babies had a special tag. Those are ultra rare and hardly seen.
  • Many people get fooled thinking they have a valuable Beanie Baby, only to find out it doesn’t have a 1st Generation Hang Tag and was apart of another Generation that was mass produced.
  • The ‘Teenie Beanies’ distributed by McDonalds also had flat tags.
  • McDonalds Teenie Beanies are not considered apart of the 1st Generation family.
  • The McDonalds Beanie Babies are clearly marked ‘Teenie’ and are generally worth less.

Hello! I have what seems to be a “Beargundy” Bear jointed but the fur is different than all the other “Beargundy” Bears that I have found online. Can this be a rare bear? The bear does not have the tag with its name but it does have the tush tag ((c)1993 TY INC. OAKBROOK IL, U.S.A.). My bear is made of short fur while all the others I found online are made with long fur material.
I would appreciate any help; I have searched and searched for answers and found none so far.

My Beanie is not a first generation but it is probably the only one that left the factory with an upside down ear, making it one of the rarest. It is from 1996 and has been stored the entire twenty years. Am not sure how to price it. I searched and searched and found not one single one like it.

        There is no test proof way to tell if it’s counterfeit. I’ve always had an easy time telling if a Coach purse, Jordan shoes, Beanie Babies etc are fake. Other people have a hard time. I would just compare it to the quality of a Beanie that you know is real.

Hi – well, today I have one question on one beanie baby! (might have more 🙂 I have Sahara (lion). I cannot find on any list so far that I have looked at. Hang tag is just a fat ty. Inside of tag shows – Ty Inc, Overbrook, IL USA; Ty Europe, Gasport, Hampshire, U.K. and Ty Canada, Aurora, Ontario and below that – handmade in Korea. Right side of inside tag shows name, to, from, with love; back of tage shows – please remove all swing tags before giving this item to a child, retain for reference, For ages 3 and up, Surface wash;
Tush tag is loop (feels woven) with front of tush tag showing just a red heart with ty in middle and the letter r encircled. Back of tush tag shows – Ty Inc 1997, Oakbrook, IL, Reg No. PA-1965(KR), All new material, Contents: polyster fiber & P.E. Pellets in cloth bag, Hand made in Korea and lastly the letters (?) CE. Would really love to know if this beanie is worth anything and at the very least, what generation each tag is, etc. Thank you so much. I read some of your blog and seems you have a passion for this. Thank you!! Debbie

    Hello! The Sahara Lions are a different line of Ty plush toys called “Ty Classics”. They will have slightly different tags. I believe there are 4 generations of Classic tags but I’m not sure how to identify them off the top of my head. Because the Classic toys never became as popular as Beanie Babies, very few if any of them have value. The Classics are a little larger then regular Beanie Babies as well which can help identify them.

    Hello. Sam is apart of the Ty Classics line of toys. They weren’t as popular as Beanie Babies and tend to have very minimal value, $1-$5.

    Hi Anita,
    I have 150+ beanie babies…maybe 2/3 of them still have the ear tag but have been removed so I could wash the beanie babies. Even thought I still have the ear tags for these, does it mean that they have little to no value any longer because the ear tag is no longer attached with the red plastic connector? One of these beanie babies is the “Garcia” bear with the rare misprint on the ear tag (“use” instead of “used”) and I was hoping to sell it, but I’m not sure what the true value would be. I haven’t gotten it authenticated…should I? I’ve seen these bears on eBay selling anywhere from $24.99 to $3,000.00 which doesn’t make sense to me why there is such a huge range in selling price for the same rare BB. Any insight you can provide is much appreciated! Thank you. ~Keri

Found an original jade Teddy, second gen hang tag, first gen tush. Hang tag is pretty beat up but intact. From pics, I believe it’s missing the ribbon. Is there value in this, and how would I get it authenticated? Thanks

    Hello! 2nd Generation Jade Teddy’s can have value if real. Your best bet is to contact True Blue Beans about any questions about getting it authenticated: http://www.truebluebeans.com/

I Just found a beanie in its clear keepsake box when I was going through some of my daughters things. I have seen so many different things on its worth and im not sure if you know much about it, but it’s worth a try, right?;-) It’s the Millenium “Millennium” beanie. Any advice you could give me on its worth? I’ve seen it being listed for $5 all the way up to $1,250.

    Hello! Unfortunately on eBay there are a lot of crazy listed prices for all kinds of things from baseball cards to beanie babies. Ty made over 20 million Princess Bears. There was a time when they first came out they were worth over $1,000. That was over 15 years ago. Today, no Princess bear is really considered rare, and they typically sell in the $1-$10 range, no matter the variation or style.

      Caught me fuming about what is going on on ebay. Princess is on ebay at vast prices. I have been in ty’s for many years. Queued all night + had to buy lots of other ones to get the one you were after. Also I was at lots of fairs & got loads of rare ones for me & friends. I bought a whole collection for 100.s of pounds I still have rare first gen attics & sets of large bears.I have Blackie large bear, he is in one of the books but without a tag. Mine does have a tag & it says ” with love” on it. I had Brownie & authenticated it & was sold at Btitainia Fairs & sold for a very good amount. I got Royal Blue Peanut from the same person & did not get it authenticated as I was keeping it.I am on here as I am looking to get it authenticated ( in UK ) & sell it.
      I love Sekura 1 & bought it for over £100, Sold it to a friend as I would still see it. Would you believe I bought one on ebay sealed in it’s authenticated box for £9.99. All Krazy. I could go on for ever, but rant over LOL
