Beanie Babies Worth Money

Below is a list of Beanie Babies worth money. They feature some of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Generation versions that are hard to find and also rare exclusive Beanie Babies that were not available to the normal public.  eBay is the best marketplace for high and low end Beanie Babies. Very few are worth money, but if you have a 1st Generation Hang Tag Beanie Baby those can sell for over $100.

Condition and the Tags make a huge difference in the price of Beanie Babies. If the toy is well used and shows noticeable wear then that will dramatically impact the final sale price. The Tags play a huge role in determining the value of Beanie Babies. Not only do they identify the toy, but the condition of the tag will also factor into the value.  Beanie Babies with no Hang/Swing Tag will not be worth as much as one that still has the tags attached. Most Beanie Babies have the “Tush Tag” still attached as it was sewn into the toy.

Many of the Beanie Babies listed below are authenticated by 3rd party authenticators. There is a cost associated with grading/authenticating your beanie, usually around $15-20 when shipping is taken into account. If you have a rare beanie, or a 1st generation one, then you might want to consider getting it authenticated to maximize value. There were many fake and counterfeit beanies that were created during the boom of popularity the toys had in the 1990s.

    Thanks for all the great information about rare Beanies and their current value! Beanie Babies are such fun, cute collectibles and I hope that they continue to be popular.

  • money love says:

    I like Beanie Babies Worth Money | Love My Beanies!

  • susie says:

    Hi can you tell us anything about a 1997 Teddy (tan) with a Santa’s hat? Haven’t been able to get any information about this in any book.

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hi Susie!

      Is it “Kringle”? It’s a tan bear that is also wearing a santa suit with a santa cap. It’s style number: 40138. They sell for about $5-10 online. If that isn’t the one, let me know.

  • Isabel says:

    I have Beanie Babies where the tush tag says Mfd for McDonald’s. I have Pinchers, Peanuts the elephant in baby blue and Waddle The 3 of them have the Heart tag. Does anyone have any information on these?

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Isabel!
      The McDonald’s beanie babies were one of the most popular promotions MCD ever had. It worked out well for McDonalds and Ty, but unfortunately because they made so many of these toys, they aren’t really worth anything at all. There is a Ronald McDonald Ty Beanie Baby that is worth around $40-70.

  • curiosity says:

    I have found a large amount of beanies and am trying to figure out the value of some of them. The main eye catchers I have right now that have peaked my curiosity are:
    Princess 1997 with no number stamp in the rump tag
    Peace 1996 with no number stamp in the rump tag
    Halo 1998
    All of them are in perfect condition with tags completely intact.

    Also, I have a beanie case that has never been opened with tag completely intact. Inside it has a beanie coins, pack of collector cards, a Clubby II bear and membership card.

    Does anyone have any information about these items??

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello!

      For the Princess, there are many different versions. Most of them are worth less than $10, but there are a few that are worth something. This is the best page on the Princess Ty Beanie – see what version you have and there is a value chart at the bottom that is updated monthly: http://www.tycollector.com/the-scoop/princess-bear.htm

      With Peace, there are also many different versions. One that appears to have value has: the word “original” misspelled as “oriiginal” on the front of the heart tag, inside the yellow star. The word “Surface” is misspelled as “suface” on the back of the heart tag. One recently sold for $317.00 with those tag errors.

      The Halo is in the $5-10 range.

      The beanie case you have is a real nice find. Those were collector kits and are somewhat hard to come by. It’s probably worth in the $15-40 range.

  • Mary Marshall says:

    This website is great! I don’t collect them, instead I volunteer at our local Meals on Wheels thrift store where many Beanies are donated. I’m curious, what made the Osito bear recently sell for so much money? Thank you.

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hi Mary!

      I might have to double check the sale price of that Osito. Osito’s are little more rare than other beanies,but not in the $3,000 range. Many sales on eBay are a mistake or don’t ever get paid for. Looks like most Osito’s are worth less than $20.00, and there doesn’t appear to be anything special about the one that sold for $3K. Thanks for commenting! I’ll make a note on that page about the unusual price.

      • Mary says:

        Thanks! I read that they were only sold in the U.S. but I was taken back by the reported selling price. Now I have a better idea of how to price the one we have. Being a thrift store, we price items to sell but we also want to earn money for the program. Would you mind helping me with any future Beanie questions I might have? Thanks again!

        • Love My Beanies says:

          You’re welcome Mary! Thanks for bringing that one to my attention. I would love to help you anytime you get some beanie babies at your store. Let me know when you get some in.

  • Mark Keels says:

    Hi- I just started going through my daughters old collection of Beanies and came across a KUKU with a tag where the star is in white with black writing and not yellow with black writing. I cannot find information on such a tag anywhere. Any help? thanks

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hi Mark – it looks like there were some Beanie Babies that did have the “White Star” on the hang tag. Counterfeiters would sometime put the white star on beanie babies, but I have not heard of any KuKu’s that were mass counterfeited. Beanie Babies with the white star are considered rare. It’s hard to put a value on it, but I would guess somewhere in the $10-20 range. To the right collector who might be more familiar with the rarity, possibly more.

  • Mark Keels says:

    I also found a Coral with what I think they call a tush tag in black and white but my daughter wrote “coral” on the tag. Is it worth anything? thank you

  • molly garrison says:

    Hi I have a Millennium in box still color purple with date stamped of 1999. Wondering how much its worth ??

  • Frances Brabham says:

    I have a huge beanie collection from 1993 to 2001. All are mint in display case and tag protectors. They are all 4th generation hang tags. I also have a number of errors for instance I have four different versions of Mystic the unicorn, one of which has a Jolly tush tag. I also have Princess with PVC and no space on poem and dark purple color. I have four Derby two no spot on head. Are errors more valuable?

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Error Beanie Babies can be worth more, I think it is generally seen as being a little more rare. It really depends on what generation it’s from and the demand for it. Certain errors can command bigger $$. Sounds like you have a real nice collection!

  • Abbey says:

    I have several beanie babies only with tush tags would like to know what they’re worth…. I have a princess Diana in mint condition all tags intact…. I have a couple beanie buddies in excellent condition and on the retired baby list please let me know

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Abbey, most beanie babies without the hang tag are not worth very much. The hang tag is one way to identify what generation the beanie is from, and without it, it can be difficult to know. Most Princess Diana Beanie Babies are worth in the $2-5 range. They made over a million of them so they are very easy to find.

  • Berylene says:

    I have a Nuts Beanie Baby that was part of the Kmart Valentine Sale in 1998. They were ordered by a judge to remove them from the stores. Was wondering if it is worth anything, Still in the original plastic container with the necklace to.

    • Love My Beanies says:

      That’s a nice find. Here is some information on the original promotion: http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Kmart+Offers+a+Sweetheart+Deal+for+Valentine%27s+Day-a020184825

      “More than 40 different Beanie Babies varieties are included in the promotion. Each will be “hugging” a pedestal that displays a genuine 5-point diamond pendant. The round diamond is in a 10-karat yellow- and white-gold scalloped setting and hangs from an 18-inch link chain. “At $49.99, this is a sweetheart deal.”

      And that is correct, Ty sued K-Mart and they had to stop selling them, shortly after they went on sale. It appears they were only on sale for a little over a week.

      The 5-point diamond pendant on the 10K yellow/white gold chain has some monetary value. It probably depends a little on the quality of the diamond. It’s worth at bare minimum the value of the jewelry piece.

      It’s hard to find one of those for sale. Back in October 2013 there might have been a couple listed on eBay for $35.00. I could only see the listing title which described it as a 10k diamond pendent with the beanie babie. I would think it’s worth somewhere in the range of $30-50. Which seems cheap considering they are very rare. If I find more information on these or find one for sale I will pass along the information.

      • Berylene says:

        Thanks for the information. I already had the article you sent. It is funny to me that I paid $49.99 for it and it is not worth any more then that today. Very strange.

        • Love My Beanies says:

          I’d think it’d be worth more too and to the right person who knows the back story they might pay a premium. One problem was 1998 was at the very tail end of Beanie Babies craze and only a few buyers remain today. If it had happened a little earlier in the 1990′s there would probably be a little more awareness of these which would probably push the price up.

  • Abbey says:

    Ok, thanks so much. What about the Beanie Buddies are they worth very much? I have a few of them in excellent condition with hang tag and tush tag. The ones I have are on the retired beanie baby list.

    • Love My Beanies says:

      The Buddies are cool, and some of them can have a little bit of value. Do you know some of the names of the ones you have? It all depends with those, much like regular beanie babies, certain ones can be worth more than others.

      • Abbey says:

        I have the Orange Crab Digger, Quackers the Duck with wings, Bronty the Brontosaures (part of the trio of dinosaurs). They are all the Beanie Buddies.

        • Love My Beanies says:

          Looks like for Digger, about $5-10. Quackers, a little bit more, about $10+. Bronty, about the same as Quackers, $10.

  • colin69 says:

    I have a royal blue peanut elephant 2gen hang tag 1gen tush tag is it worth out

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello. I believe that Royal Blue Peanut Beanie Babies did not come with a 2nd Generation Hang Tag. Only 3rd Generation hang tags for those. Take a look at the hang tag again and see if maybe you have a 3rd gen one.

  • Jill says:

    Hi, I have several beanie babies that I bought from a storage unit. They are all in plastic boxes and have the tags on them with plastic also. Some of them are 1990′s and early 2000. Do you know how I can find out how much they are worth, and where I could sell them?

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Jill. With Beanie Babies, the tags hold the key to knowing the true value. Much like baseball cards, very few beanie babies are worth anything. I would start by seeing if you have any with 1st Generation Heart Tags. They should be fairly easy to spot as they are the only beanie babie heart tags that did not open like a book. Here are some pictures of Tags Generation 1-4: http://lovemybeanies.com/beanie-babies-hang-tag-generations-1-4/

      Beanie Babies with a 1st Generation Heart Tag will have a 1st Generation Tush Tag: http://lovemybeanies.com/1st-generation-beanie-babies-tush-tag/ Beanie Babies with those two tags are typically worth something. It’s very hit or miss with Beanie Babies that are not 1st Generation.

      The largest market for beanie babies is eBay. I generally search completed auctions to see what one might be worth. Granted, the Tags make all the difference. A 1st Generation Bones the Dog is worth good money. A 5th Generation Bones the Dog is almost worthless. The only difference between the two are the tags. Take a look at what you got and let me know if you need help figuring out which ones you might have. It can get confusing! :)

      • Jill says:

        I went through them all, and I don’t happen to have any 1st generation tags at all. I have some really neat ones that I have not seen often, so I will look on the ebay auctions, like you said, and see what I can do with them. Thank you so much for your help. Have a great day!!
        Jill

  • Kari says:

    I have alot of beanie babies that i collected from 1997 to 2000, wondering how i find a true collector, they have been stored for 16 years, and live in a smoke free and pet free home. Have over 100 and wonder how i can find out the value of them, like which catalogue to get etc. thanks in advance, live in Calgary Alberta.

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Kari! Finding a true collector could be difficult. Very few people collect beanie babies anymore and there are many people who want or would like to sell the ones they have.

      I would stay away from any price guide or catalog. Most of them will be outdated and prices tend to be inflated. Your best bet is to go through some of the ones you have, I like to search completed eBay auctions for an idea on value. Keep in mind the tags on the beanie babies make all the difference. A 1st Generation Bones the Dog is worth good money. A 5th Generation Bones the Dog is almost worthless. The only difference between the two are the tags. Some of the ones still worth decent money today are 1st Generation Heart/Tush Tag versions.

  • Lisa groves says:

    My son has the collection of super Mario beanie babies from 1997 does anyone know if they worth anything?

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Lisa, were those the ones with BD&A tags? Looks like they weren’t made by Ty, but some other company. Some of them appear to have a little bit of value if they have both tags on them. In the $10 range, some a little more, some a little less. Some of them you can get over $20 for on the right day. Super Mario, Luigi, Bowser, and Yoshi appear to be the ones with the highest value.

  • RichS says:

    I have recently opened two full storage containers filled with Ty Beanie Babies. I have researched some of these. The prices of these beanie babies vary a great deal with each of these websites and catalogs. Which one would be accurate and up to date?

    Like an earlier comment above, I have a complete Ty Beanie Baby Case, complete with a coin, collector cards, a membership card, and other items….including a Clubby II beanie bear….I have also found several different versions of Derby, Mystic, and Iggy….Lefty and Righty (2000). Would you know the accurate pricing for these?

    Also, do you know if Legs is worthy? I found him in a sealed display container with a worn price tag. I could not make out how much the price tag says, but both of the Ty tags (Swing and Tush) are attached. Thanks for your help.

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello, There are several factors to determine the price of your Beanies.

      A) I wouldn’t advise using a catalog. Those are typically out of date and usually reflect prices for Beanie Babies when they were popular. They are not mainstream popular anymore and the prices have tanked since the year 2000.

      B) All the prices on this website are from completed sales on eBay. I don’t make up prices or take guesses. I get prices from eBay and even double check them to make sure they were legitimate sales.

      C) All Beanie Babies Prices Depend on the Tags. A 1st Generation Bones the Dog is worth good money. A 5th Generation Bones the Dog is almost worthless. The only difference between the two are the tags. So you might see a “Bones” sell for $100 and another one sell for $0.99 cents. You have to know how the tags work in order to know the accurate pricing.

      I can help you out if you know a little bit about which ones you might have. Sometimes just knowing what Tush Tag it has can unlock keys to knowing the value.

      • RichS says:

        I apologize. I do not know much about the Ty Beanie Baby collections…and thank you for your patience with me.

        A) I have found out that Lefty and Righty are 6th generation.

        B) There are three Derby’s…

        1) No star/Course mane (4th generation)
        2) Star/Course mane (5th generation)
        3) Star/Fine mane (5th generation)

        I still need to find out about Mystic and Iggy. I’ll let you know more details as soon as I can. Again, thank you for your time.

  • tim says:

    I am looking to sale about 239 bears. I sat down and put them all on spreadsheet but really do not feel like going through the tipical ebay stuff and all that. Do you know anyone that will look at list and make a fair deal. Most are in box still.

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Tim, It would be difficult to find someone who will buy them sight un-seen. You could list all the Beanies together on Craigslist or eBay as a lot, which you might get .25 cents – .50 cents a beanie.

  • Josh says:

    Have you ever seen a 1997 Holiday Teddy mislabeled tush tag Erin or a 1998 Holiday Teddy tush tag Peace? Any idea how much they could be worth? Thanks

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Josh! The errors may raise the value slightly on the Holiday Bears. Tush Tag errors are fairly common, but there are some interest in them. You’re probably looking at anywhere from $5-$15 each.

  • Gorilla says:

    I have a Millennium with the misspelled name inside hang tag plus the ‘Gasport’ also has the hard ribbon instead of soft. Also a ‘Curly’ bear with a 3 year difference between the hang tag and tush tag. Also have a bunch with a 1 year difference between tags or just the ‘Gasport’ misspelled. Values on these? Thoughts of what to do? Thanks

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Gorilla – the Millennium spelling error is fairly common, as well as the Gasport errors. The difference in years on the Tush and Swing Tag are not errors. That is the way they were originally made with gaps in years between the tags.

  • Mary says:

    Hello again from Mary at the thrift store. Before I took over the “stuffed animal” department, BBs were being priced at $.50. They usually sold right away. I am currently pricing those with both swing and tush tags (and in good condition) for $1.50 and those with just tush tags for $1. They are still selling quickly so I’m pleased. Do you think my pricing is reasonable? I value your opinion!!
    I always pay attention to tag generations and have saved some to ask if you think I can/should price these differently.

    Mystic pvc pellets, 3rd gen tush and 4th gen swing with tan horn and thick tail yarn.
    Chocolate pvc, 1st gen tush and 3rd gen swing.
    Pinchers pvc, 4th gen tush and swing tags.
    Valentino pvc, 3rd gen tush and 4th gen swing. Surface (sufrace) on tush is misspelled.
    Valentino 6th gen tush and 5th swing. Surface (suface) and original (origiinal) mispelled on swing.
    Bucky pvc, 2nd gen tush and 3rd gen swing BUT the to-from section was written in.
    All of the above are in very good condition and don’t smell.

    The last two were donated w/o swing tags which I know diminishes their value, but thought I’d run them by you.

    Chocolate pvc and 3rd gen tush.
    Hoot pvc, 4th gen tush along with the Canadian tush tag.
    Both are in very good condition.

    I have some more unusual ones that I will ask your thoughts on but first they must be aired out from smoke ;(

    Again thank you for your time and willingness to help me!!!!!

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Mary – great to hear from you again!

      $1.50 seems like a real fair price. I often see them priced between $1.00-3.00 when I see them at antique or baseball card shows. If they keep selling really well, you could bump them to $2.00, but $1.50 is real fair.

      Mystic - You are just one generation too late on the swing tag with Mystic. If you see any with a 3rd gen or lower swing tag, those are good. $1.50 bin :)

      Chocolate 3rd/1st – You did well here. It’s in the $15-60+ range. Anytime you see a 1st generation tush tag or especially a 1st generation swing, you did pretty well. If you sell it in your shop. Minimum $10. The right person will see that is a good deal.

      Pinchers - too late a generation for this pinchers. $1.50 bin :)

      Valentino - I do see some interest in these. The one with the double tag errors is probably a tad bit more desirable. A little all over the map as far as pricing. Several have sold for $25-35. While some have sold in the $5-10 range. On eBay, sometimes there is a wide range of pricing, but they are worth a tad more then the $1.50 bin.

      Bucky - that one is tough with the writing. If no writing, it might be in that $10-20 range. With the writing, bumps it down a bit. $1.50 would be a good deal on it, but you wouldn’t have to feel too bad about letting it go cheap.

      Chocolate 3rd Tush – Once you get past the 2nd generation tush on Chocolate = no $. $1.50 bin :)

      Hoot - kinda the same as the Bucky – with the swing tag – $10-15ish. Without it, $5 or less.

      Let me know on the other ones you have! I enjoy hearing about which ones you get. Keep your eye out for anything with a 1st Gen Tush or Swing, and the 2nd Generation Swings can bring good $ too.

        Thank you! I went to the store this afternoon and saw that the BBs put out on Sunday were gone. (The store is only open Wed-Sat.) I think I will raise prices a tad bit higher and see what happens…..a common saying amongst the volunteers is ‘you can always lower prices if it doesn’t sell’ ;) As soon as the others don’t reek of smoke, I’ll write again. Thanks so much for all of your help ;)

    I have a patti that has a 4th gen tag. With style number 4025. What is this worth. I have hundreds of beanies and have no idea what they are all worth.

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Claire! After the 3rd Generation, Patti’s aren’t worth very much at all. On it’s best day, $5-$10. Keep looking through the ones you have and let me know if you find any others you need help on.

    Hello fellow Beanie baby lovers.
    I personally worked with Ty Werner when he first
    Launched b b ‘s. He came to my families full service
    Printing company back in the 1980′s.
    So I worked with him and a lady he was with.
    This brochure was probably the first one in color
    produced. It was a beautiful brochure using spot
    gloss and dull varnishes.
    I still have one left.
    It could be one of the only ones
    left in the world.
    I might sell it, for atleast $ 1200.00
    If interested leave a v m.

    I have a big Humphrey beanie original buddy yellow star on tag.. 1996..number 09307 would u know what its worth

    • Love My Beanies says:

      The big Humphrey Buddy is probably worth in the $5-15 range. It is one of the early ones, as the other ones tend to have 1998 tags.

  • holly says:

    Hi there, i have a peace bear with 3 errors, the 2 common misspelled words and his hang tag says curly? Thanks so much for helping us…..really cool, holly

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Holly! The Peace Bear seems to be plagued with errors, is it the Tush Tag that says Curly? One with the two misspelled words with a Curly Tush Tag recently sold for around $30. It’s probably in that $15-30 range if it’s in decent condition.

  • Brenda morrow says:

    Hi my wife has tubs upon tubs of mint condition beanie babies which she has no use for anymore and wanting to know if there are any buyers out there because these are older generations of beanies if anyone wants to e-mail her with complete list that’s not a problem 2morrows@eastlink.ca

  • T says:

    Hi:) I have a question about fake beanie babies…….alot of the research about this states that fake beanies will have tush tags that are orange, and authentic beanies tush tags will be printed in red. How come there are several “expensive, authentic, rare beanie babies” with ORANGE tush tags being sold on ebay??
    Thanks!!
    T

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello T! That is actually a very good question. I have seen the warnings about the writing being Orange on counterfeit beanie babie tush tags. It’s possible that some counterfeits are good enough that they would pass some sort of 3rd party authentication. I’ve seen it happen with baseball cards and definitely in the autograph community. Counterfeit beanie babies aren’t necessarily my specialty, but if I were in the market for some of the older beanie babies, it would be something that would worry me. Anything made after year 2000, I doubt there are many counterfeits as that is when the mass popularity fell off. Anything pre-1999 I would be careful with, especially 1st Gens and ones that seem to be mass counterfeited like Princess, Valentino, Peace/Garcia, etc.

  • Eva Webb says:

    Hello, I am hoping you can help me. I have the 1996 “Batty” beanie baby, with the hang tag still attached. The tush tag says 1998. I was told this is an “error” and it ups the value of this toy. Is this true? Any help you can provide is much appreciated.

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Eva! It appears the Tye-Dye version of Batty came with a 6th Generation Tush Tag. Those can have the dates: 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997 or 1998 printed on them. Many beanie babies have discrepancy’s between the birthdays and the tush tags. I’ve seen many beanie babies listed for sale that describe these as rare, but I believe that is how they were intended to be made. The Batty Beanie babie wasn’t introduced until 1999, so the date of birth of the beanie babie can be out of whack to when it actually hit the market. To my knowledge the batty isn’t rare, it’s just how the 5th/6th Generation Batty’s were originally produced.

  • Sara says:

    Hi I have a 1996 ty cocoa with pvc pellets is he worth keeping

    • Love My Beanies says:

      Hello Sara, The Cocoa dog is actually somewhat hard to find. You’re probably looking at somewhere between $10-25 as a value. It’s definitely worth hanging onto.
