Was Spending All That Money On Beanie Babies Worth It?

We could have had it all.

Posted on

If you were blessed enough to be a 90s kid, at one point this was probably you:

BURIED. UNDER. BEANIE BABIES.

Because Beanies Babies were god's gift. There was literally no such thing as too many.

You probably did unspeakable things for special editions (like cleaning your room or helping your Mom with the laundry).

But then one morning, just like that shitty kid in Toy Story, you cast these beloved friends aside.

BECAUSE YOU HAD BOSS ASS ADULT SHIT TO HANDLE LIKE POKÉMON BATTLES.

And they were forever consigned to the dustiest corner of your attic.

Because that's where you put things that are garbage, but might be worth something one day.

*pours one out for Antique Road Show*

Now you're an adult who's surrounded by at least a college semester's worth of plush toys with the tags still on them.

You never even played with them because you didn't want to fuck up the resale value.

Basically you're poor and staying that way, no thanks to Beanie Babies.

  1. So it's time to ask yourself the ultimate question:

    FUCK YEAH I STILL COLLECT BEANIE BABIES CAUSE I’M A RIDE OR DIE KINDA BITCH.
    Some people had Harry Potter, I had Beanie Babies.
    Awwww Beanie Babies....I'd say yeah cause it's not like I spent my own money on them (you're a sucker Mom).
    More emotionally supportive than my middle school boyfriend so yeah it evens out in the end.
    Seeing as I’m a SENSIBLE kid like the one in “Toy Story”, I donated all of them to children in need. Can you measure true happiness BuzzFeed? CAN YOU?
    I mean I guess I got a good #tbt out of it?
    I gleefully ripped off all the tags and poured all of them into a makeshift ball pit in my backyard. I’ve never enjoyed Beanie Babies more.
    Every Beanie Baby I have is another day I can start a fire in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
    It’s not like spending money on Beanie Babies is any crazier than spending money on a college degree.
    Nah.
