So clearly I have always liked Beanie Babies. Apparently I liked blue camo shirts too? But that is besides the point. liked Bea But yes, Beanie Babies. I loved. I gave them for gifts. I got them for gifts. I saved up my allowance to buy them. And sometimes I could get my mom to just buy them to buy them. I think I ate happy meals every week when they had the mini version of them. One of the best Christmas gift memories I have outside of family is a Beanie Baby. My best friend down the road spent months on eBay bidding for the black panther Beanie Baby for me. That is what I call friendship.
And I bought and I bought and I put on tag protectors. And I saved them. And I stored them. And I was VERY very careful when I played with them. Just to put them back in their box and slide it under my bed. I was careful because I swore that is how I was going to pay for college. Those Beanie Babies were my trust fund! So imagine how upset I was when they lost all their value when Ty decided to "stop making them" only to keep making them. Well the other day I saw an article about their worth. It looks like it might be time to dig through those boxes, which are still under the bed, and make some sweet cash! Did you collect Beanie Babies? Have you been holding on to yours in hopes of money someday? It looks like it might be time for us all to cash in.
