    I bought about 4 beanie babies when my neighbours Mum told me they would go up in value in a few years.

    I don`t think they have, or will and I don`t know where they are now or *gasp* IF THEY EVEN STILL HAVE THE TAGS!!!

    My neighbour`s Mum bought her hundreds of the damn things. She literally bought her at least one a day. Absolute rubbish.

    "This was a fad?"

    It was, and if you got into it when it started you could make a pooload of money. People were paying ridiculous amounts of money for them. Now they`re worthless.

    Yeah, I have a ton, but not with the tags intact.
    I played with them a lot, and the tags all fell off.
    Because that`s what you do with toys.

    My cousin had about 100 of these things and me and her brother were playing in her room and we just started pulling the "ty" tags off of their ears. (Supposedly that made them worthless)

    She almost killed herself when she found them.

    My dad used to collect hundreds of these things. He would take us to the stores before they even opened to get the new ones when they were released. They`re sitting in a rubbermaid container in our attic now, doing absolutely nothing.

    i used to collect. my most expensive one was supposed to be worth 75 but it had a dog eaten ear. and of course, its only worth that if you`ve got someone willing to pay that for it. i wound up selling the entire collection for 50 cents each. i was a little kid so its a little understandable that i got sucked into the fad. but i don`t really understand some of these adults that thought it was a really good deal. $75 for a small stuffed animal is never a good deal.

    I got Humphrey the camel in a mug as a gift for graduation from a friend (1994)before the craze. She paid $5 for it, new. I sold it on ebay for $1200. Kid you not. Went to a goodwill store two years ago, and found another Humphrey for 99 cents. I kept it this time for nostalgia reasons. :P They don`t sell for quite as much anymore.

    I used to get so many of these. They are still in my bed actually, weird as that sounds. I remember when I got one with my birthday I was so happy, and I used to hunt for them in swap meets to see if I could find one worth some money. It`s not too hard to see why I never made any profit.

    Also..I had beanies as toys, not collectibles. And apparently one of my parents got rid of all of them except a mongoose and a sloth. Isn`t that just the most random pair of animals you can think of? Whatever...I`m still a bit saddened by the mass disappearance of my friends.
