just came in to talk about how my primary school friends mental mam never let her play with her beanie babies cos they were an 'investment' and recently that friend got done for nicking from primark or something.
LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE DONE, PEOPLE WHO INFLATED THE PRICCE OF BEANIE BABIES TO SELL MORE OF THEM.
I've never heard of these before? Were they REALLY seen as an investment at one time? JFC
My friend's mum was obsessed with Beanie Babies and got us (a group of pre-teen girls) involved in her quest to become rich through plush toys. On the weekends she used to take us to these beanie baby markets where people would spend sometimes hundreds of pounds on one beanie.
At it's peak I sold a giraffe I'd bought in my local florist for £40 which was a huge sum to a twelve year old.
