The value of Beanie Babies is something many people wonder about at one time or another.Whether you have found one for pennies at a thrift shop or you are wondering if your 1990s collection is still worth anything, there are ways to find out.There are several factors that contribute to the final value of Beanie Babies.When the Beanie Baby craze was at full swing it was not unusual for a particularly popular Beanie to sell for hundreds of dollars.People are willing to pay for what they want so a popular character can fetch much more than a less desirable one.It is hard to say what factors make a particular item so desirable to so many.Often it was a particular look or a character, like Princess the Bear (created in memory of Princess Diana), that was created in honor of a particular person or event.Like all antiques and collectibles, condition is an important factor in the final value.
Near Mint - The tags might be slightly worn or bent but the character is in perfect condition.
These sell for 80% to 90% of the price of the same toy in mint condition. The character itself will still be in perfect condition.
The fair price on a beanie in excellent condition would be about 65% to 75% of the mint price.
Very Good - The tags are very worn, torn, or missing completely but the character is still in perfect condition.
You can expect to price this at about 40% to 60% of the mint price.
