List RulesVote up the Beanie Babies that would make you rich if you'd just held onto them.

In the '90s, many people bought a few (or a few dozen) valuable Beanie Babies, but trashed them all years later. However, quite a few Beanie Babies are worth a staggering amount of money now. If you tossed out your old toy box, there may be a few rare Beanie Babies you wish you still had.

A lot of collectible toys from the '90s are worth some major coin these days. McDonald's and Burger King made some now-valuable toys, and millennial kids got super obsessed with Pokémon cards, but Beanie Babies epitomized the "gotta have it" collectibles craze. Toy brand TY would quickly discontinue popular models, encouraging collectors to hoard.

People are shelling out loads of cash for select high-value Beanie Babies. Take a look and see if you ever jammed one of these hot-commodity stuffed animals into a trash bag in your mom's attic. You might just end up richer than you think.
