If you are wondering where to sell Beanie Babies for cash, you probably know how huge these toys were at one point.
In the ’90s, Beanie Babies were big business. There was a boom of people “investing” in the Beanie Baby market, often spending hundreds of dollars on the most sought-after bears.
People were desperate for those pellet-filled bears! They came to blows or, as happened in 1999, resorted to murder over Beanie Babies.
Eventually, the bottom fell out of the Beanie Baby business, and now most of them are worth very little. However, if you’re lucky, there are still a few out there that can sell for good money.
Even if you don’t have any of the rare ones and just want to get rid of the pile you have, stick around and you’ll find out all about where to sell Beanie Babies for money!
What will I learn?
Best Websites to Sell Beanie Babies
When it comes to selling toys, usually the internet can fetch you more money. The best places to sell Beanie Babies, if you have valuable ones, is also online. Collectors will be out trolling for Beanies in antique shops and flea markets, sure, but if you want to be able to reach the most collectors and even have them compete for your collection, online is the place to go!

Craigslist is a good way to find collectors in your area if you’re the type to prefer supporting your local collectibles traders.
The usual go-to for online sales, eBay has already been used to sell hundreds of Beanie Babies for up to $60,000! The great thing about eBay is you have the choice of selling for a flat rate or putting your Beanie Babies up for auction, to potentially earn more (or less).
There are Beanie Babies on sale on Etsy for up to $75,000. However, Etsy is more the place to go if you want to sell to nostalgic buyers, as the majority of offers are in the $3-5 range.
This is a specialty site specifically designed for people looking to sell all kinds of collectibles, Beanie Babies included. As a neat bonus, if you sell more than $30 worth of merchandise to them, shipping is free.
Where to Sell Beanie Babies Near Me
Selling locally is a good way to get rid of a bulk of items. It’s not the best way out there to get the most money for what you’re selling, but if you’re desperate to sell your Beanies there are a few options available.
The first place to look is antique shops. It’s been nearly 30 years since Beanie Babies hit the market, which means they count as vintage collectibles. You can pick up a fee pretty quick from an antique dealer who is willing to take what you have for resale.
While the fee may be low, this is a great alternative for sale if your stuffed animals are in less-than-mint condition, as collectors aren’t going to buy heavily used toys, according to antique appraiser Dr. Lori.
Another way to sell locally is to set up shop at a flea market! If you’ve got a really big pile of Beanie Babies, this is a good way to make sure you’re there in person to haggle for the best selling price for them.
How Much Can You Sell Beanie Babies for?
As we explained in our rent post about selling Legos, it depends on what you have. Most are not worth that much money. Although you will find sellers listing some for over $20,000, nobody is actually buying them for such crazy prices. Most end up selling for $10-$20.
That said, there are valuable Beanie Babies that can sell for big money. And there are collectors who will pay good money for the right one.
Some of the most valuable Beanie Babies include:
- Snort the Red Bull
- Jake the Duck
- Patti the Platypus
- Peace Bear
- Princess the Bear
- Valentino Beanie
- Claude the Crab
The easiest way to find out who much you can realistically sell yours for is to look at the ones that have actually SOLD on eBay, Etsy or other sites. That can give you a good idea of how much to list yours for.
By the way, if you find out that yours are not particularly worth much and it wouldn’t even be worth your time to try and sell them, you can always donate them. We have a post about where to donate toys that includes a huge list of places online and near you.
Tips and Tricks for Selling
Here are some tips to help you get more money for beanie babies.
Look at the tag hanging off the BB’s ear. It’ll tell you what generation of bears it came from.
You can look that up online to learn what price range to put them up for. Be sure to include anything you find in your listing to grab the collectors’ attention!
It’s what’s inside that counts
The little pellets that your Beanie Babies are filled with can be the difference between a common 50-cent toy and a big-ticket item.
Polyvinyl Ethylene (PVE) pellets are more common and therefore are worth less. What you’re looking for is Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) pellets, which are rare. You can find out what’s inside your Beanies on the tag on their bottoms.
Join a group
Beanie Baby Facebook groups are full of people who can help price your stuff. There’s also a chance that you’ll get offers on your Beanies if you have on that’s rare enough.
A picture is worth a thousand words (or dollars!)
Make sure to take good photos that showcase the Beanie Baby’s condition and what’s on the tag. Multiple angles and an eye-catching one for the thumbnail are a must!
While Beanie Babies didn’t turn out to be the investment opportunity that people expected them to be, a select few of them can be worth a pretty penny. If not, their status as a nostalgia item for a lot of people gives it a bit of value these days, so it’s a great time to cash out your collection!
This idea of selling beannie online using facebook is a good idea, since facebook reaches millions of people around the world and beannie stuffs never gets old, theres always some people who would be looking for it but this should secured since scamming online is popular nowadays.
Thanks for chiming in, Alfredo. You are absolutely correct. You have to be very careful selling or buying anything online. They are a lot of scammers out there.

Hello Oh My Alot Of People Have. Beanie Babies. I Wasnt. Exspecting To See That Others Have Alot Like I Do . Oh Well That Idea Of. Getting Rich Quick. Is Now Gone Ugh. I Have So Many.
I have lefty and eighty if anyone interested
My Mom had been a collector ever since they came out. In the early stages her idea of a ift from me was for the few she had been missing. Unfortunately she passed in 2017, and decided I was the only family member that played a role in her collection thus left 19 50 gallon containers of them to me in new, if not almost new condition. My brother stored them and then brought them down to me last year. I have approximately 1600 cases, my brother doubled 2 in a case, and I still have 3 huge bags of loose Beanies stored in addition. I would guess about 2500 in all that before I sit down and sort through I would consider offers for. I have pictures of the beanies in cases as a group for thos interested to see.
Our condolences to you for the passing of your mom, Richard.
I’d try and list them on some of the sites and apps mentioned in the post. I think with that many Beanie Babies, you should be able to generate a decent amount of cash, especially if some of them happen to be rare and valuable.
