Although some Beanie Babies, like this 2,000 Princess Diana commemorative one, do command some monumentally steep prices: So if you’ve got one of them hanging out in your closet, you’re hypothetically in the money.
Oh, and just for the record, if you have any Beanie Babies with misprinted tags, that’s a surefire way to drive the price up. With a misprinted tag, he goes for ,000: At the height of the original Tamagotchi craze (circa 1996 to 1998), I remember seeing listings for them on e Bay, which was new at the time, for hundreds of dollars.

So, with Tickle Me Elmo, the third time was the charm.
I combed e Bay for information about nine must-have toys from our childhoods to see what was up.First-edition Furbies have suffered pretty much the same fate as Tamagotchis. I found e Bay listings for original Tickle Me Elmos in just about every price point possible; most of them seem to hover around the mark: But here's the thing: Can anyone explain to me why these things were so popular when they first debuted in 1996? but alas, I was always deemed too young to be allowed around its many robotic parts.I mean, I know I was many years out of the target demographic at the time… TR seems to have a respectable following on e Bay, with the majority of the listings for a well-kept bear hovering around 0 for an unboxed one: Be on the lookout for fakes, though; this one, for example, looks a little suspect.Interestingly, this upsetting rendition is seemingly closer to the original toy’s inception.Four years before Tickle Me Elmo blew up, he was actually Tickle Me Chimp, then later Tickle Me Taz, after the Tasmanian Devil.
I cannot, for the life of me, explain my obsession with Treasure Trolls.
