If you have one of these rare Beanie Babies you could be incredibly rich
Back in the 1990s, before the joys of smartphones and social media, kids used to play with these things called "toys". Toys came in all shapes and sizes - from miniature cars to collectible cards to little plastic dolls - but one of them triumphed over all the rest. It was small, it was soft, and it was rumoured to be worth an insane amount of money.
We're talking, of course, about the Beanie Baby.
For years, both children and adults alike flocked to stores to buy the latest Beanie Babies, almost always in the hope that - one day - they'd be worth a decent amount of dough. A lot of the time, this idea was scoffed at, and people who had spent a significant amount of their savings on stuffed animals were ridiculed for believing such a thing.
As it turns out, though, the Beanie Baby fans were right all along, as some of the toys are now worth tens of thousands of dollars.
Unfortunately, it's only a very select few that have such a huge price tag, but if you have one of them, you could be sitting on a fortune...
