I have so many of those things. Those and Pokemon Cards... *crosses fingers* I hope the price of those things go up by the time I`m 80 so I can retire!

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.

I`m not even bothered by the adults in this video. The CHILDREN, however, are freaking me the F*CK out. Especially that first kid...Please, children of the Beanie....Please leave me alone!

I had spunky too! Thats he only one I can remember, but I did have a lot! But i was only 6/ 7 yrs old at the time, so I reckon it wasn`t too bad...

I am ashamed to say that I was part of the TY Beanie Rush x.x I have quite a few of them still in perfect condition. However it really is damn pointless now. Stupid beanies >.<

BTW I know LOADS of people who keep them waiting for the "right time" to sell them. I think many people fail to realise that they will never be worth a load of money.

I only got a couple, cos I liked them as toys. What sane person would COLLECT them? I guess you could sell them for a few $ each to get you through the recession.

I had the Derby without the mask and first thing I did when I got him was rip off his tag haha so maddening he was worth a lot at one point...

I still have them though, they`re at my parents house.

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.

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.

She`s carrying Snip! I love Snip. She`s in my closet as we type. I have a few of those, but they`re kind of worn.

A family friend of ours has been collecting them in boxes for years; mainly bears.

I have hundreds of those things still in a box in the extra bedroom. Just about every beanie in the video is probably in that box right now. Mostly, I give the ones I don`t want away on people`s birthdays.

I have a few beanies. Where are they? In my dog`s mouth. I hated this creepy fad and the yo-yo one as well.

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.

lol, uncut Derby`s worth more than a cut Derby because he`s an oddity. :P

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.

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.
Memories...

I still collect beanie babies. They`re so cute and you can find them for dirt cheap. Besides, like every fad, they`re bound to be back in style someday.

I want to buy a couple hundred dollars worth of beanie babies just to burn them in the backyard and release the souls of all the trapped children in them.

Wow, it`s hard to imagine the world like that. I never knew Beanie Babies were worth that much. BTW, what person in their right mind would pay 75 dollars for a toy?!?

I`d like to see a follow-up video with all of these people and where they are today.

I imagine that the one kid in the green shirt is curled up in a fetal position, rocking back and forth and wondering what the hell happened.

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.
YOU PLAY WITH THEM. :|

"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.

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.
