Are McDonald’s Teenie Beanie Babies Worth Anything?

No. None of the Ty Teenie Beanie Babies associated with the McDonald’s promotion starting in 1997 are worth anything. Customers who purchased a Happy Meal from McDonald’s during the various promotions were given a Ty Teenie Beanie.

The 1997 promotion was so popular McDonald’s had planned to giveaway 100 million Teenie Beanies in 5 weeks. According to a new book about Beanie Babies– it only took 2 weeks before they were all gone.

Really? None of them are worth anything?

Zero. None of them are worth anything. Maybe if Michael Jordan signed one, then you might have something. Below you can check the price on Amazon to see what people are trying to get for them.

Made in China. There’s your answer.

dan - 17 August, 2017

Hi .. I see such high prices on some of these on ebay. Saying they are error? Are they really worth more than $5. Is ebay the place to sell? I have Britannia the Bear
Erin the Bear
Glory the Bear
Maple the Bear
all in unopened packages… with the date and name error they say .. any interest?

Wendy Alsept - 1 August, 2017

Here are my thoughts. 1… someone out there may want them bad enough to pay more than the average person.
2 quality and quantity…. like a whole set in original packaging…. I have at least 1 full set if not 2 (different years) in original packaging.
3 time….. I would think as the years tick by and most get destroyed maybe they will be worth more one day like 50 years plus.
Summation: will they ever make you rich…. highly doubt it not in our lifetime.

Yvonne - 18 June, 2017

If I didn’t own 99’s collection and know it not to to be the case, I would believe that owning a collection of the McDonalds Beanies, alters a person’s reading comprehension skills. The whole article from beginning to end, says they are worthless! Yet, people keep asking about the value of the collection, or individual beanie that they have. What is so hard to understand?? If it is in the McDonald’s mini beanie collection, it is worth less than the Happy Meal it came out of!!! Commenting or saying the name outloud, doesn’t change that!!

hi someone gave me a huge box of McDonalds beanie babies and told me I could sell them online and make a lot of money but tried and no one will buy them so if anyone is looking, I have 5 sets of the 1999 McDonald’s Teenie Beanies, all still unopened and in original packaging with tags, and I have 4 sets of the 1999 International Versions, a all still unopened and in original packaging, and i also have like 5 sets of the dinosaur trio ones, at least i think that’s what they call them that’s what it says on them, anyways they are all unopened and still in original packaging to. i was gonna just open them all and give them to my kids but i have to boys and i don’t think they would be that into them, so now they are just taking up space. should i just take them to the goodwill? or if anyone wants to maybe buy them, let me know and i can post pics or email them pics or what ever.

Vindi - 28 August, 2016

So hard to believe that they are worth nothing at all!!! ? People clambered to get them, stood in lines to get them, fights broke out, they waited to trade them, it was crazy! We have every single beanie put out by McDonald’s, but only because my daughters grandmother “insisted” her granddaughter had to have the entire sets. She obtained complete sets for both her granddaughters Gramma is gone now, the beanies are safe and sound, and now we find they aren’t worth anything….so disappointing. We have other Ty Beanies that we purchased, not put out by McDonald’s, & realize those have some worth, but we aren’t willing to part with them just yet. We’ll keep them all…cuz that’s what Gramma would want… bless her soul. Thank you all for your input, lots of great info here.

Scotty Scott - 22 August, 2016

I bought them when told they were worth money, however I give them away for free with purchase of beanie babies on Internet , also give 10% to Ronald McDonald house with purchase of other Beanie Babies since it says not to be resold , I’d suggest you do the same…,

Cynthia Rice - 14 August, 2016

I have every Teenie Beanie Baby ever made I also have the regular beanie babies ever made along with their buddies. I also have the nine original beanie kids.

    I just bought a few lots of McD Beanies on E-Bay. I got 34 of them for $37.00. On E-bay if you sell individually they go for $1.99-$4.99 + shipping and handling. There are many ‘lots’ – like 19 beanies for $6.00+shipping. If you really want to know the value–simply make a list and check E-bay for the item to get a good idea of what you have. The other McD toys run about the same.

Some of the regular size Beanies with the same name as the Teenie Beanies might be worth something to the right collector, but believe me – EVERYONE collected McDonald’s Ty Teenie Beanies and kept them in the cello packaging. Tons of folks are trying to sell them. Pretty much no one is buying them.

        Common sense tells us (well at least me), that the value of something is only as much as what someone is willing to pay for it. I wouldn’t pay 2 cents for a rare Star Wars collectible, but a Star Wars enthusiast may pay $500. It’s finding the right person, looking for that item. As explained (and researched, not an opinion), due to the massive amounts distributed, verses the amount still in existence, they are worth very little. So actually, that is not what the writer thinks, it is factually based! Sounds like you just lucked up on a poorly researched buyer!
