Original 9 Nine Beanie Babies

Some Original Nine 1st Generation Beanie Babies can be worth money. It all depends on certain factors, mainly the tags. Versions that have 1st Generation Tush Tags are the ones to look for.  Many fakes and counterfeit Beanie Babies were created during their popularity during the 1990’s.  Most of the Original Nine Beanie Babies were continuously released in other Generations. You might have a Legs The Frog Beanie but if it doesn’t have the 1st Generation Heart Tag/1st Generation Tush Tag it’s not worth very much money.

1st Generation Beanie Babies that sell for the most money are typically authenticated by places like PBBags, True Blue Beans and Peggy Gallagher. 1st Gen Beanies without the “Hang/Heart” tag are worth considerably less than ones that do have the tag. Typically, the “Tush Tag” is always attached to the Beanie as it would be difficult to remove unless cut off.

Beanie Babies that are 1st/1st Generation are easy to tell if they have the two tags. The Heart Tag will not open like a book. The Tush tag is the most simple of all Beanie Baby generations and you can see information about 1st Gen Tush Tags here.

Cubbie The Bear
Original DOB: November 14, 1993 (Brownie)
Retired: December 31, 1997
Style Number: 4010
Hang Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Tush Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
Cubbie The Bear Beanies For Sale

 

Originally released under the name Brownie. Besides the tags, Cubbie and Brownie are designed the same. Ones with the Brownie tag are almost impossible to find and are extremely rare. But 1st Generation tags with either Brownie or Cubbie are also very difficult to find and are worth money.

In 1993, Brownie and Punchers (Pinchers) were the very first Ty beanie babies to be shown to the public. The Original 9 Beanie Babies were then displayed at the New York Toy Show in 1993.

There are five generations of the Ty hanger tag and six generations of the tush tag. The only ones worth money are the 1st generation and the 2nd generation hanger tag versions.  The Chicago Cubs also gave away many of these bears at games, the first giveaway being in May 1997 (10,000). Cubs giveaway versions can be worth about $10-50 depending on the condition.  The Chicago Cubs versions come with a special card that state which giveaway date the bear comes from.

Pinchers The Lobster
Original DOB: June 19, 1993 (Punchers)
Retired: May 1, 1998
Style Number: 4026
Hang Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Tush Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
Pinchers Beanies For Sale

 

One of the first two Ty Beanie Babies ever released along with Brownie (Cubbie) under the name Punchers.  It is believed that the Punchers name was just a typo mistake and was quickly changed to Pinchers on 1st Generation tags. Versions with the mis-spelled 1st generation tag are worth good money but are very rare and virtually impossible to find.

1st Generation Pincher Beanie Babies are the ones worth the most. In nice condition 1G Pinchers can be worth more then $100.  There appears to be versions with “long antennas”.

Chocolate The Moose
Original DOB: April 27, 1993
Retired: December 31, 1998
Style Number: 4015
Hang Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Tush Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
Chocolate The Moose Beanies For Sale

 

There are five generations of hanger tags for Chocolate the Moose. Ones with the 1G tag can sell for a lot, easy $200 and the better the condition the price goes up from there. But 2G and 3G versions can sell for a little bit as well. Like most beanie babies, the lower the generation tag (1G, 2G, 3G) the higher value the beanie baby may be worth.

One unique characteristic about the 4G version of Chocolate the Moose was that it was the first Ty Beanie Babies to feature a poem. You can guess what Chocolate the Moose’s favorite treat must be! Very popular Halloween beanie baby.

Squealer The Pig
Original DOB: April 23, 1993
Retired: May 1, 1998
Style Number: 4005
Hang Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Tush Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
Squealer The Pig Beanies For Sale

 

Squealer the Pig was one of the longest running beanie babies from the Original Nine, not retiring until 1998.  But the values for Squealer The Pig are a little lower then some of the other beanie babies on this page. Some 1st Generation versions can sell for under $50.

3G – 5G hanger tags are not worth very much money, typically less then $5.  Squealer would be a great start to your 1st generation collection because you can find them relatively cheap on places like eBay and Amazon.

Splash The Whale
Original DOB: July 8, 1993
Retired: May 11, 1997
Style Number: 4022
Hang Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3, 4
Tush Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3
Splash The Whale Beanies For Sale

 

Splash and Flash look a lot alike, Splash is the black and white whale version and Flash is grey.  Splash was one of the very first beanie babies to be retired and only has four generations of hanger tags. 1G versions can be worth upwards of $200+ and ones in good condition sell for even more.

First Generation Beanie Babies might also have the Ty (UK) LTD sticker on the back making them even more rare. Having the UK sticker on the back of the Ty hanger tag will increase the value on all 1G Beanie Babies.
Flash The Whale
Original DOB: May 13, 1993
Retired: May 11, 1997
Style Number: 4021
Hang Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3, 4
Tush Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3
Flash The Whale Beanies For Sale

 

Flash and Splash made their debut at the same time and were also retired at the same time. Ty began making Echo the Dolphin after they retired the original two whales.  There is a very rare 4th Generation Hang Tag variation on some of the Flash Beanie Babies that spell the name “Fiash”.

Prices for Splash and Flash are about the same. 1G versions are worth something and the generations after are not worth nearly as much. Common 3G and 4G Splash Beanie Babies are only worth in the $3-9 range and can be found very easily.


Legs The Frog
Original DOB: April 25, 1993
Retired: October 1, 1997
Style Number: 4020
Hang Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3, 4
Tush Tag Generations: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Legs The Frog Beanies For Sale

 

Legs the Frog is one of the most mass produced beanie babies but 1st generation versions can still sell for about $100 in decent condition. After the 1G versions there are not any Legs The Frog’s that are worth very much money.

All of the original nine beanie babies were mass produced after the 2G versions. None of the 3G, 4G, or 5G beanie babies carry much value from the original nine series.


Spot The Dog (No Spot)
Original DOB: January 3, 1993
Retired: April 13, 1994
Style Number: 4000
Hang Tag Generations: 1, 2
Tush Tag Generations: 1
Spot The Dog (No Spot) For Sale

 

The very first Spot the Dog Beanie Babies were produced with no spot and come with the 1G hanger tag. Those are very rare and worth more then most 1G original nine babies. The 2G Spot the Dog Beanie Babies come with a spot. 1G and 2G versions are some of the most valuable out there, and even the 3G Spot the Dog can sell for $25+.

All other 1G Original Nine Beanie Babies were released in 1993 but Spot the Dog was born on Halloween 1995. It is believed that less were produced and therefore 1G and 2G versions can have value.
Patti The Platypus (Deep Fuchsia)
Original DOB: January 6, 1993
Retired: 1993
Style Number: 4025
Hang Tag Generations: 1
Tush Tag Generations: 1
Patti The Platypus (Deep Fuchsia) For Sale

 

Patti the Platypus went through many different color schemes. It is one of the most commonly found Beanie Babie. 99.9% of all Patti’s are worthless. The only versions that have any value will have a 1st Generation Tush Tag. Patti is named after one of Ty Warner’s longtime girlfriend and business partners Patricia Roche.

Hi. I have an original 1st generation Legs the frog, made in Korea with 4 lines of text on the tush tag and single hang tag. So glad I came across your site as I was about to sell it for about £6.50 on eBay then reading all the above info discovered it could be worth a lot more. Only problem I have is getting it authenticated in the UK. If anyone know of anyone in England preferably who can authenticate, please can you let me know at gemtps@hotmail.com or if anyone knows what I should start an eBay auction at, that would be really helpful. Thanks.

      I would have it checked out by someone that Authenticates beanies before doing anything…but realize this, the bottom feel out on Ty a LONG time ago. This is one of the original 9…BUT only a few of the originals kept their value, & still now are worth a Lot. Not sure about Chocolate. I always loved chocolate because I love moose. But not ever willing to pay much for any beanie no matter what the value. But there are some people that will, but mostly if Authenticated. Google “looking for someone to, or does Authenticate beanies” U may find someone, PLEASE, always, “BEWARE” of everything U do. When looking to Authenticate, if U do ALWAYS ask to see some sort of credentials proving this IS a true person that does these for a living. They should have some kind of number…then research this person Before paying them to do so. Like the BBB (Better Business Bureau) or maybe they can send U to someone that can help, if the person is on the up & up, (because they don’t work for cheap, this is their signature their putting on the line) & you’re willing to pay the price, realize this takes away from the value of the beanie for U, as U just spent a lot of what you’d make on a specialty person, but once it’s authenticated, they will give U what’s called a Certificate of Authenticity. Proving this IS an original, then U need to find a second person whom can give U the “exact” value of this beanie, these people also do not come cheap, but if you’re going to be sure to get your value out of it, then maybe it’s worth it to you. One thing to keep in mind, My father use to always say (not an original saying but it was a smart way to live by) “Opinion’s are like Butt holes (he use to use a different term, I’m sure U can figure it out, lol) everybody has one” really meaning everyone is going to have a different opinion, take them for what they are worth. Now, to finish up here, this is getting WAY too long, Only U can decide if it’s worth all this to go through to sell ONE beanie, this particular original 9 beanie, being honest with U, never was one that everyone ran after…But on the other hand, seeing it’s hard to find the 1st generation tag on an original 9, & there ARE others that loved Chocolate no matter what anyone said. Like myself being one of them. I was always told, “U know he’ll never be worth much” didn’t matter, he meant something to me, & mine at the time before I let my kids have them, was a generation 4 tag I believe? But I also only pd. a dollar for him also. =) I guess from here, it’s in your hands, but don’t let anyone cheat U either. The least u could do is go to amazon.com see if there selling any gen. 1 chocolate beanies, & what people are paying, or contact someone possibly U feel U can trust from google.com. There’s a lot of people that still have followed this market & may help U without going through all the mess. It’s how “YOU” feel, do U trust in them, then put it up for sale, or the worst U could do id put it up as an Unaunthicated original 9 chocolate the beanie, describe it as honestly as possible, as to the condition of the beanie, the hang tag, tush tag, & general all over look, take a LOT of photos, DON’T promise anything U can’t prove, set it up for an “auction style” sale, let it run for at LEAST a week, as so U get as much viewers as possible, & then allow it to sell for what ever someone is willing to pay U for it. No Muss, No Fuss, sell as a No Refund, As Is Item, U can also (don’t always suggest it) set a price you’ll only allow it to sell for, if it doesn’t sell for the amount set, then U don’t have to let it go if U decide not to let it go for the amount it ended at. But then you’re going to pay higher add fees. And Always start it at .99 cents. you’ll catch a lot more with Honey then vinegar. Then U mat sell it for 100.00 or more, but it also could go a lot less. His value may be a thousand dollars?? Not in reality, only putting that out there, but you’ll never know the true value unless willing to jump through all the hoops, but the hoops cost a lot of money? what’s it really worth to U to put it up for sale, & in reality, what are U looking to get out of it. Good Luck.

        I’m not aware of any 4th Generation Patti’s that are worth anything close to $450. Many years ago the “no stamps, typos” etc may have impacted the value on Beanie Babies, but today, that is just not the case. Unless it’s a 1st Generation Patti, it is pretty much worthless.

Hello there
I probably have over 500 beanies babies in perfect condition, most are probably 1st and 2nd gen. I also have a few that were rare when I first started collecting when I was a child. I’m feeling very overwhelmed to even get started on how to price them or estimate there value. Any suggestions and/or a comprehensive place to price the ones that I have deciphered are at least somewhat value able according to your descriptions? Thanks for any info.

Hey there! Thanks for all of the great info, I have the first generation tush tag for patty and the brown bear, no hang tag. I know eBay is the best market but are there other options? I’m not sure I can do it justice with all of the nuances but I know that they are both first generation and the platypus is one of the rarer ones, right?

I just found a box of beanie babies that I had when I was little. I used to collect them. Is there anyway I can find out how much to sell them? And who authenticates them? I know I have a few with errors like “Gasport” being misspelled. I know I have a lot more of them I am just trying to find them! All or most of the tags have been protected and they seem to be in really good condition. I just don’t know if it would be worth it to sell any of them. I know I have “Chocolate” the moose and “Claude” the crab and two different colored iguanas both named “Rainbow” I think they are all 5th gen. Except one which is a cat named “Chip?” or it might be “Nip” and that one is a 4th gen I think, the capital “I” is just a straight line. I had a millennium bear but I am having trouble finding it. I had a lot of other ones, I just need to find them…. But can you give me any advice as to how to sell them? or if its even worth it? I won’t sell anything if its not going to bring in something somewhat decent…

    Hello! With Original 9 Beanie Babies, the key to finding the value all comes down to the tags.

    The ones worth the most will have:
    1st Generation Hang Tags: http://lovemybeanies.com/beanie-babies-hang-tag-generations-1-4/
    All 1st Generation Hang Tags have 1st Generation Tush Tags: http://lovemybeanies.com/1st-generation-beanie-babies-tush-tag/

    The ones worth the 2nd most would be versions with 2nd Generations Hang Tag & a 1st Generation Tush Tag.

    After the 3rd Generation of Hang Tags, most Beanie Babies are essentially worthless.

    A good tip is to look for ones with 1st Generation Tush Tags, they are easy to spot, and then figure out the Hang Tag. Let me know if you find any with a 1st Gen Tag and I can definitely help you out.

        It will all depend which ones they are and what generation they are from. A good place to start is to see if you have any with 1st Generation Tush Tags: http://lovemybeanies.com/1st-generation-beanie-babies-tush-tag/ Ones with a 1st Generation Tush Tag and 1st Generation Hang Tag typically are worth the most. Beanie Babies with a 1st Generation Tush Tag can have either a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Generation Hang Tag. The further you get into the Generations the less valuable they are. Once you get into 3rd Generation Tush or Hang Tags it’s pretty rare to have one of value. Ones missing the heart tag are very hard to sell unless they have a 1st Generation Tush Tag.

        Here are the 1st four Generations of Hang Tags: http://lovemybeanies.com/beanie-babies-hang-tag-generations-1-4/

Hey there! I have a Chocolate Moose beanie, 4G, I’m almost certain it’s the thinner-faced old version… the swing tag is still there but it’s bent in a few places… AND it has the wrong tush tag, it says “Mystic” instead of Chocolate. No stamp, 1993, PVC pellets. And of course the plush itself is in good condition. How much would you say it would be in value, and do you recommend I get it authenticated? I’ve been told that’s what you need to do when there’s a wrong tag involved.

Reply
    Love My Beanies - 17 February, 2014

    Hello Arielle! There are definitely many Chocolate Moose Beanie Babies with wrong Tush Tags. It was somewhat of an epidemic, and it’s strange that so many Chocolate’s feature a wrong tush tag. Unfortunately, the value is very limited because so many Chocolate’s exist with the Tush errors. Beanies with some value, it is a decent idea to get authenticated. It would cost you $15-20 or so, maybe a little more with shipping involved. One place that does authentication is True Blue Beans: http://www.truebluebeans.com/

    I wouldn’t recommend getting the Chocolate you have authenticated, only because it wouldn’t really up the value that much if you wanted to sell it. If you do happen to find more beanies, especially 1st generation heart tag ones, then you might want to go the authentication route because it can help get you extra money if you sell it.

        That helps a lot. The Attic Treasures were a separate toy line Ty created in 1993. They are very similar to Beanie Babies, but just a different “brand” in a way.

        There are a few Attic Treasures that are worth decent money, but those tend to be the first few that were released. April the Bunny came later on and are only worth a couple dollars today.

        The Attic Treasures had heart tags that came without a star, so they are very easy to confuse with the 2nd gen regular beanie babies. Here is a good website that shows all the Attic Treasures Tags: http://www.salsattic.com/tags.htm

        Hope that helps! Let me know if you find any other ty toys you need help with.

    Brownie Beanie Babies with a 1st generation hang tag are worth the most money. Those tags are flat and don’t open like a book.

    Hello Kaitlyn! The Pinchers & Cubbie are worth a little bit if they have the 1st generation tush tag with the 3rd generation hang tag. Some sell on eBay for $10-20. If the tags are in really good shape they can be worth a little more. The Princess Bear is a little confusing. To my knowledge there are only a “few” that are worth the big money. I bought one recently for $2.00. The ones that have some value appear to be the ones with the P.V.C pellets. You can see what pellets the Beanie has by checking the Tush Tag. It should either say P.V.C. Pellets or P.E. Pellets. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    If they still have the 1st Generation Hang Tags on them then you can usually get decent money for them. Sometimes over $100 each. A Pinchers with the 4-Line Korean tags sold for $1,800 recently. Your best bet to sell them is eBay, it has the widest audience and if you put enough pictures and a good description you should get quite a few people who will bid on them.
