Bones The Dog Beanie Babies

Bones was a favorite among early Beanie Babies collectors, but so many have been produced that only a handful are worth money. The only Bones the Dog beanie babies that are valuable will a 1st generation hang & tush tag. Here is what a 1st Generation Tush Tag looks like. Here are pictures of Hang Tags Generations 1-4.

In August 2013 an authenticated 3rd Generation Hang/2nd Generation Tush Bones the Dog sold for $26.00 on eBay. It costs around $20 to authenticate a Beanie Baby so you can see there isn’t a whole lot of value outside the 1st generation ones.

    Without the hang tag it really hurts the value. Maybe $1-$5 or so.

Is the Bones with the weird error at the end of the hang tags (the “that all stopped when his teeth fell out) line.. is that one worth any more? Or was it not that common?

    The only Bones worth something will have a 1st Generation Tush Tag. With the error, maybe $1-$10.

Hi. I have a kangaroo beanie baby with the tag named Bones. Style 4001 and it’s birthday is 1/18/94. Is that worth anything? It looks like the wrong tag on the wrong beanie baby.

    If it’s authentic it would probably be worth several hundred.

    Hello! Unfortunately without the hang tag it only has minimal value, in the $5.00 range.

I have a 4th Generation Bones Beanie. The tush tag says 1993 but the ear tag says born in 1994….Style 4001. It also says You’re instead on Your. Any value? Thank you so much for your site and willingness to help.

Hello! So i have a Bones with an error “Your so destructive” instead of “You’re”. But it’s hang tag has been ruined by a sticker witch was put on the tag buy the people who i bought the beanie from. I tried removing the sticker but it was no use. Would my beanie still be worth something? And yes it has style 4001 and p.v.c pellets.

    Also i have a Peace bear, is it still worth anything? Here is a list of what it has:

    ~4th generation hang tag (I think) With style 4053. Also the tag is slightly damaged.

    ~Rainbow peace sign

    ~Star beside TY, but it has no stamp inside of the tush tag.

    ~Tush tag is copyright 1996 with p.v.c pellets.

    ~Eyes are close together

    Let me know if it’s worth anything!

      Hello! Unfortunately the Peace Bears have little to no value. Some of the Garcia Bears, which look exactly the same, can have a little value, but looks like Ty made a ton of the Peace Bears.

    Hello Rebekah! It’s a nice find to have one with the poem error ‘Your’. The value is somewhat limited even with a perfect tag. With a mint tag it might be worth in the $10 range. With the tag in a non-mint state, a little less than that. I’d hang onto it, since there aren’t that many with that error.

I have a Bones style 4001, dob 1-18-94 in what looks to be perfect condition. How much you think I should ask for it if I sell?

    Hello! The only Bones that have any value are ones with 1st Generation Tush Tags: http://lovemybeanies.com/1st-generation-beanie-babies-tush-tag/ If it doesn’t have a 1st Gen Tush Tag it would be a tough sell, and not worth very much.

    Bones with a 1st Gen Tush Tag & a 1st Gen Hang Tag = Over $100
    Bones with a 1st Gen Tush Tag & a 2nd Gen Hang Tag = $50-90
    Bones with a 1st Gen Tush Tag & a 3rd Gen Hang Tag = $10-15

    All other Bones are essentially worthless, or in the $1-5 range.

I have a Bones that says, “Your so destructive” instead of you’re. Any value?

    Hello Emily, it looks like you might have a 4th generation bones, as that is when the poems started to appear on beanies. It’s a known error on the Bones Beanies, and probably somewhat rare. I couldn’t find any listed on eBay in the last year with that error. 4th generation Bones beanies are typically fairly common, but most of those appear to have a “You’re”. I’m going to say that your bones is probably in the $10-20 range. Which is considerably more than a regular 4th generation bones with the correct poem. Nice find!

      That’s pretty neat! I also have Scottie with “slways” instead of always. Would that be around the same value as Bones?

      Reply
        Love My Beanies - 12 January, 2014

        It might be a little less than the Bones. I’m seeing about $5 on “slways” versions. Let me know if you find more 🙂

What about a Bones the Dog beanie with a tush tag stating Derby? Any value?

    Love My Beanies - 3 November, 2013

    Hello Sandy!

    I am seeing a couple other Beanie Babies that have an error Derby tush tag that have sold between $10-20. Not bad at all. It’s an interesting Beanie that appears to be somewhat rare.
