If you grew up in the 90s, there are most likely some of these TY Beanie Babies hanging around your house or your parent's house packed away in a box. Well, it might be time to finally cash in on that investment because there are actually quite a few worth some decent money now!
Sure, there was always the rumor that buying beanie babies would make you rich, but when the whole fad went out of style, the value of a lot of these guys dropped significantly. All of us with shelves upon shelves of beanie babies were left with a bunch of stuffed animals that we had no idea what to do with. They all got packed away in boxes and shoved into attics but it might be time to pull them out because some are worth really good money now.
Here are 10 of the most valuable beanie babies you might just have tucked away in your house!
1. Princess the Bear
This bear was made as a tribute to Princess Diana following her tragic death. If you have one of the original first run of these it could be worth a fortune! Depending on the version you have it could be worth $75,000!
2. Curly Bear
Curly is worth around $24,500! That's a lot of money seeing as how these guys cost less that $20 new.
3. Peace Bear
Each one was unique so there is a huge variety of what they look like. Apparently that makes them worth up to $5,000 to the right collector!
4. Valentino Bear
For such a simple looking bear he is worth a good chunk of change! You can get a whopping $19,000 for this little guy.
5. Millennium Bear
While everyone else was panicking about Y2K, the TY beanie baby company was creating a bear that is now worth around $5,000.

Beanie babies were everywhere all of the time. There were guides on what they cost published every year when they were at their height of popularity. I remember that there was even a local flea market that had a specialized booth that would sell the "rare" beanie babies in special PVC cases to keep them free of dust.
I should be more ashamed of how many I still have tucked away, but maybe they will make me rich one day right? Well, at least they will if I have any of these ones!
6. Hippity Hoppity Rabbits
If the Easter bunny brought you one of these guys, they are now worth up to $5,000.
7. Mystic the Unicorn
This little unicorn could fetch you up to $1,000 from the right buyer.
8. Snort the Bull
He's worth roughly $1,500 for the right version.
9. Claude the Crab
This fancy little sea creature is worth $2,500.
10. Pumpkin Beanie Baby
This one is worth A LOT because he is a mistake. Because his face was stitched on upside down he is worth $38,000.
