Good morning, again! The highest price realized within the past six months was around $125 for a first impression Princess Di beanie baby. In excellent condition, with original tag, most retail from $50 to $100 on the collector market. Here is a recent example of one selling closer to the high end on the internet auction site, eBay:

At one time, these plush toys sold for much, much more but unfortunately, as with many collectibles, the market has declined significantly in the past few years. There are still many of them available on the open market, which tends to hold the long term value down. As years progress, and existing examples disappear, the value could increase.

If I can further assist you in any manner on this topic, please just ask.

Have a blessed day!

With kind regards,

Steve

By the way, the largest market for these at present would likely be eBay.com
