Beanie Babies Price Guide

Beanie Babies are a unique collectible. As a piece of nostalgia whose popularity was at its height in the 90s, the animal-shaped bean bags are still collected by numerous people. What each one is worth can be difficult to ascertain, however. Media accounts will sometimes make claims that are unbelievable. Princess, for example, is not worth $250,000. No Beanie is. Claude the crab is not rare. Valentino is worth $2 unless it has an older tag, then it might be worth a bit more. And its nose has always been brown.

This is a running list of sales that have happened recently. Given that many of these pieces only sell a few times a year, there is no simple way to know what the price of the next sale of the item will be. So, take the prices below with a grain of salt.

  1. When Ty Warner introduced his original nine Ty Beanie Babies  in 1993, it seemed these cute toys would become the next hot collectible. In fact, that was Warner s intention. By the late 19, the Beanie Baby creator was retiring certain animals to create the kind of demand that would drive  prices into the thousands .

  2. I have a mint condition beanie baby named Mel what is the value?

    1. Mel was a fairly common Beanie Baby. He’s probably worth somewhere between $2 and $5.

  3. hey I have a nice size collection. They all have been “loved” and are missing tags but i think i might have one or two . That might be worth money. Can you help me.

    1. Sure, send an email with pictures to

  4. Are there any beanie babies from the 1990s worth a substantial amount? I have quite a few in excellent condition, tags intact , some with plastic tag covers.. All Have been stored in encased curio cabinet..?Also have several McDonalds Minis

    1. There are a bunch from the 90s worth some good money. But most are not. You can certainly take a picture or submit a list of beanie babies here that I can tell you the value of. The McDonald’s beanies are worth basically nothing.
