Get ready to check your attic; were taking a look at the most expensive Beanie Baby toys of all time!
Remember when people told you that these toys were going to be worth a fortune and then they flopped?
Well, not all of them were worthless. just like our rare Ps3 games and rare N64 games, certain variants and production mistakes bring a small fortune hat could make a big difference to your life.
Or cost you a small fortune if you’re an avid collector!
So, let’s see which bears could make you a billionaire, and which toys have the best tantalising price tags!
Hippity, Hoppity, and Floppity the Bunnies kickstart our list of the most expensive Beanie Baby toys of all time!
These bunnies come as a set, and that’s where the value lies. Sure, many people put up one or maybe two, but having three in mint condition is key.
A perfect set can fetch up to $30,000.
That probably makes them the most expensive rabbits of all time, right?
Talk about a bear whose imperfections are worth a bucket load. Valentino brings home the bacon due to a number of mistakes on both his person and tag, all of which can bump the price up to $42,000 and beyond.
Some models came with a different coloured nose, some had a different coloured star on the tag, and some had spelling mistakes inside the tag.
If you thought that Valentines Day was expensive, then you ain’t seen nothing yet!
Lefty the Donkey and Righty the Elephant look pretty happy with themselves, right? That’s probably because after they were signed by Hilary Clinton, one singular pair skyrocketed to $50,000.
Yes, a lucky technician got his daughter’s toys signed by Mrs Clinton, and they have been valued at $50,000 for the pair.
If they ever do go back on sale, you can probably expect to pay a lot more than that for them now, and that price is only going to grow!
Libearty is the embodiment of American pride, though it was originally meant to be created to celebrate the 1996 olympics.
Due to copyright infringement problems the Olympic Rings were swapped for the American flag.
If you’re looking for the original and fancy shelling out up to $75,000, then make sure to look for the red and white ribbon collar as opposed to the bow-tie variant.
Jolly the Walrus drops into 6th place in our list of the most expensive Beanie Baby toys of all time!
He looks a little miserable, doesn’t he? Well, I wonder if knowing that he’s worth $75,000 might cheer him up a little?
Jolly’s rarity comes down to the fact that he only stuck around for a year before being retired. While he’s not one of the longest serving Beanie Babies, he sure is one of the most expensive!
The big scoop on Scoop the pelican is that it’s worth a small fortune if kept in immaculate condition.
Scoop was only the scene for a couple of years, though there were a few production mishaps in that time to look for if you’re wanting to bag a rare item.
One run shipped with a completely blank tag, now worth $100,000 to the right collectors.
On it’s own in normal status, this limited-run beanie can fetch up to $50,000!
These production errors seems to happen quite a lot over at Beanie Baby HQ don’t they!
Someone, somewhere, managed to ok a run of these bats with an extra leg on them.
Now, that extra leg can be worth anywhere up to $125,000, putting Batty firmly in fourth place on our most expensive Beanie Baby toys list!
Clowns might not be as cool now as they were back in the day, but this little bear still racks up a pretty price at auction.
Picadilly Attic is a cute little kid, and bringing a price of up to $125,000 in perfect condition makes him even more exciting.
Ok, so I suddenly love clowns… anyone got one of these they want to donate me?
The penultimate critter in our most expensive Beanie Baby toys list goes to Bubbles the Fish.
And as always, it’s the models with the errors that bring the most cash.
Over the years, different generations of Bubbles came out, and the third and fourth generations had noticeable mistakes.
In the third fish, Bubbles had the wrong colour thread in its mouth. In the fourth gen model, the incorrect tags were used.
If you’ve got a fish with the wrong tags, then it could go for upwards of $129,000!
The most expensive Beanie Baby of all time is the Princes Bear, a Beanie Baby made to commemorate the tragic death of Princess Diana.
With a purple body and white rose on it’s chest, the sales of this little bear raised money for the Princesses Memorial Fund and served as a reminder of the great deeds that Diana Spencer accomplished in her lifetime.
Now, with an average asking price of around $500,000, this little bear is the most expensive Beanie Baby around!
