Rockford, IL (WLS) — Decades after the Beanie Babies craze, one woman’s entire collection is up for sale.
Jolly Estate Sales found over 1,000 Beanie Babies while preparing a property sale in Rockford.
From turkeys to pigs to monkeys, it took the team 15 hours to sort and sort the Beanie Babies into different groups.
Almost all come with tag protectors and some come in display cases.
“Hopefully some of you can fill in your collection. If you don’t have pieces here or there, or are looking for one – your mom wants you to clean up your room when she moves and throw in four or five Beanie Babies.” I do, because it reminds me of my childhood, and I hope that in whatever way it makes you happy, someone will connect with them in that way.
There is also a Beanie Babies collector card.
