Unless mom threw them out when you moved away for college. LOL, mom.

If you, like me, collected worthless Tamagotchis and Spice Girls lollipops as a kid, too bad. If you, unlike me, collected Beanie Babies and kept them in pristine condition (little heart-shaped tags still attached; inside tiny clear plastic boxes where dirt and annoying little brothers couldn't reach them), then you could be sitting on basically a winning lottery ticket. Congrats! Here are some of the priciest collectible Beanie Babies on the market (read: eBay) right now to help you get started on your new lucrative Beanie Baby reselling empire.

1 "Large" Wallace and his Squad
Ty ebay.com
$660,000.00

This rare large-sized "Wallace" and his friends, two regular-sized(?) Wallaces and Cashew and Huggy will set an extremely enthusiastic collector back nearly $1M. Think of how many new friends you could buy.

2 "Large" Ariel and 9" friends, Issy, Ariel, and Peanut
Ty ebay.com
$660,000.00

Ariel was reportedly introduced in 2000 as a tribute to a 7-year-old child who passed away following complications from AIDS. This large and regular-sized Ariel pair, along with Issy and Peanut, is up for eBay grabs for over half a million dollars.

3 15-inch Peace bear and 9-inch Peace, Ringo and Bones
Ty ebay.com
$159,000.00

This extra-large psychedelic Peace beanie baby will deliver extra-good good vibes if you manage to sell him and his friends for the going rate of over $300,000.

4 Bubbles(!)
Ty ebay.com
$89,000.00

Is there a cuter name than Bubbles? There is not. Is there anything cuter than earning over $100,000—which is how much this guy is going for on eBay—for a retired stuffed fish? There is not.

5 Hippity
TY ebay.com
$49,999.99

This Hippity is going for roughly a year of college tuition. Here is a video of how to appraise YOUR Hippity, which I'm sure is totally, (probably?) helpful if you watch it.

6 Patti the Platypus
Ty ebay.com
$14,995.00

Apparently, magenta-colored Pattis are the most sought-after Patti because magenta is the first color she/he/it ever appeared in. The other colors are fuchsia, maroon, and raspberry, which look exactly like magenta.

7 Blackie the Bear
Ty ebay.com
$38,250.00

This is one of those Beanie Babies whose value depends on what "generation" it's from. So good luck with that.

8 Valentino
Ty ebay.com
$20,000.00

The most expensive Valentino bears are the rare ones with the misspelled tags. Thanks for nothing, spell-check!

9 Claude the Crab
Ty ebay.com
$18,000.00

The only Beanie Baby reportedly with a poem dedicated to his name: "Claude the crab paints by the sea; A famous artist he hopes to be; But the tide came in and his paints fell; Now his art is on his shell!" Priceless, no? 

10 Seaweed
Ty ebay.com
$30,000.00

Looks more like edamame, but OK. 

11 Princess Bear
Ty ebay.com
$17.95

The 1997 Princess Bear was dedicated to Princess Diana. And according this lucky, about-to-be-rich eBay seller she's "undoubtedly the RAREST of all Beanies and Princess Bears!" Cool!

12 Jake
Ty ebay.com
$16,000.00

Have you ever met a more potentially valuable Jake?

13 Hope
Ty ebay.com
$3,000.00

This live reenactment of me listing old Beanie Babies on eBay is making money moves on eBay rn.

14 Britannia The Bear
Ty ebay.com
$8,000.00

All hail the bear, etc. etc. 

15 Halo
Ty ebay.com
$20,000.00

If you have a Halo bear like this one, which has "a rare white star instead of the yellow star!" then maybe you can earn $13,500, too. If not, you can keep him around as a reminder that "Halo" is Beyoncé's best ballad.

16 Pouch
Ty ebay.com
$10,000.00

A good chunk of your student loan bill could be in that pouch.

17 Holiday Teddy
TY ebay.com
$6,500.00

I'm sure the reason this cutie is going for $10,000 right now isn't because of it reminds me of Rooney Mara in Carol but I'll believe what I want, mmk?

18 Snort
Ty ebay.com
$7,500.00

This red bull will, wait for it, give you wings (as in, plane tickets; or maybe a jet pack?) if you can sell him for a couple thousand dollars like this one. 

19 Gobbles
Ty ebay.com
$6,667.00

Have a happy Thanksgiving by selling Gobbles and booking a nice beach vacay instead of a turkey dinner.

20 Spangle
Ty ebay.com
$1,284.99

The American My dream is selling this guy for over a thousand dollars and going shopping.
