Customer Question
I am trying to find...
I am trying to find out if my Ty Beanie Babies are worth anything. I hear they are but then someone tells me they aren't. Is there somewhere or someone that can tell me before getting rid of them. I have some from 1993 as far as 2000. They are all kept in no smoking home in totes.

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser and I'd be happy to help.

The vast majority of Beanie Babies are worth less than $5 or maybe $10.

The exceptions are rare examples with errors. If you look at the tags carefully, check for spelling errors to see if you have an unusual example. Also, check the tush tags to see if you have any with PVC pellets (rather than PE). Sometimes those have value.

As an example, the teddy you posted is worth around $8 if "regular," but much more if it has PVC pellets and/or errors on the tags. Feel free to post photos of the tags for my review.

I am sorry for the inconvenience but I want to cancel this out. I didn't realize that it was a monthly payment that is taken from my account. I only needed some advice of where and how to determine my question. Please cancel my appraisal question now. I do not want to continue with this site.
