Which are the most expensive beanie babies in the world?
Beanie babies! Yup, we’re talking about beanie babies.
Now, they might not be everyone’s cup of tea, however, there’s no denying they were a massive thing back in the late ’90s and early 2000s.
And now, some of the rarest ones are worth an absolute fortune!
Take a look at our list of the 10 most expensive beanie babies in the world.
The 10 Most Expensive Beanie Babies In the World
These are the 10 most expensive beanie babies in the world:
10. Iggy the Iguana – $15,000
Kicking off our top ten most expensive beanie babies, Iggy the Iguana has gone through a lot of different design variations over the years.
For example, some Iggys have a tongue sticking out, some are rainbow in colour, others are dark blue and the tags are placed in different locations, like the spine, hand or foot.
These have become super popular with collectors because of all the different colours, styles and characteristics.
If you manage to find one with missing print inside the tag, hold on to it as it’s worth a fortune!
9. Brownie the Bear – $20,000
Next on the list is Brownie the bear.
Brownie is one of the original beanie babies and worth a ton! After it was retired and replaced with “Cubbie”, Brownie has gone on to become a collector’s item.
It can be identified by its brown fur and tan snout, and also it shouldn’t have a poem inside its tag.
Bears are the most popular beanie babies, but because Brownie is also featured in the first-ever collection, it’s deemed as being more valuable.
Check your collection and see if you have an original!
8. Hippity, Hoppity and Floppity the Bunnies – $30,000
These cute little bunny beanies are rather appropriately named and come as a set unlike many on our list.
Being part of a set makes them pretty hard to come by and therefore increasing their value.
If you can find one on its own, it still might be worth a decent amount, however, if you felt the need to have more than one bunny as a kid, then you’ve maxed out on this one!
7. Valentino the Bear – $42,300
The next beanie bear on our list is Valentino the Bear.
Probably the most elegant looking beanie bear of all time, Valentines colour and subtle embellishments make him extremely sort after.
However, there was a certain batch of Valentino bears that had their names misspelt inside the tag, therefore they’re even more valuable.
If you manage to find one, you could be looking at selling it for around $42,000!
6. Lefty the Donkey and Righty the Elephant – $50,000
Lefty the Donkey and Righty the Elephant are two beanie babies that are pretty sort after in the beanie baby world.
But, it’s this particular pair that are of most interest due to the one of a kind signature from Hillary Clinton.
In 2006, a technician and loving father managed to get the beanie babies signed by Hillary for his daughters.
So, considering the valuation of Mrs Clinton’s signature, it’s no surprise that collectors would be willing to pay $50,000 for them!
5. Piccadilly Attic – $125,000
Coming in at number five is what many kids might consider “scary”, a clown beanie bear.
If you can get past the scariness about him, and focus on his other features, then Piccadilly Attic is a no brainer for any collector!
Clowns aren’t the most popular thing for kids, so maybe it wasn’t the best move by Ty to make him back in the day.
However, some lucky owners will be glad they did as his value has rocketed in recent years!
4. Bubbles – $129,000
Bubbles was released in 1996 and proved to be super popular.
It went on to have several different updates and modifications, but within these updates were a few different errors.
For example, the third generation Bubbles has the wrong colour thread through its mouth and the fourth generation Bubbles has incorrect tush tags.
These errors have gone on to make Bubbles super valuable, as the ones with the errors on the tush tags made in 1996 are worth a bomb!
3. 15-inch Peace bear and 9-inch Peace, Ringo and Bones – $159,000
Breaking into the top three most expensive beanie babies in the world is this gigantic 15-inch beanie Peace bear and 9-inch Peace.
If you can manage to sell these together, which would be the most obvious option, you’re looking at a substantial amount of money.
With their unique psychedelic colourings and both sporting the peace symbol, this pair would look great amongst a real collectors collection!
2. Princess the Bear – $500,000
One of the only beanies on our list to be associated with a tragic historic event, Princess the Bear was produced by Ty in memory of the late Princess Dianna.
The bear’s purpose was to motivate the beanie community into contributing to the Princesses memorial fund.
It has a purple body and features a white rose on its chest.
It’s extremely rare and therefore usually has an asking price of around $500,000.
1. Large Wallace and his Squad – $600,000
Topping the list of the most expensive beanie babies in the world is Large Wallace and his Squad.
Similar to the 15-inch and 9-inch peace bear, this duo packs one hell of a punch when it comes to its value.
For $600,000 you’ll get a rare large-sized “Wallace” and two regular-sized Wallaces, Cashew and Huggy.
Apart from their exclusivity, there’s nothing else that really adds to their value.
So, if you have a spare $600,000 and fancy buying yourself a collector’s item, then here’s a really good one for you!
We hope you enjoyed our list of the 20 most expensive beanie babies in the world. Who’d of thought these tiny stuffed animals could be worth so much money a decade down the line!
