Read All About It!
Have you heard your Millennium Ty Beanie Baby is worth thousands? You may have read a ‘clickbait’ article, ones that are written to attract readers but are not based on actual facts, saying it is one of the top 10 valuable beanie babies. Misled sellers have even offered to fly their beanie to potential customers because of the high value. Before you buy a plane ticket, know that NO variation of Millennium is worth $5,000, no matter how many errors are found.
Ty beanie baby Millennium has many variations, now referred to as errors. Besides name and location misspellings, Millennium had a ribbon, and a tush tag generation change.
Below are some differences/errors you can expect to find. These were all common, a.k.a. mass produced.
1st Millenium: 1 ‘n’ hang tag, 1 ‘n’ tush tag; incorrect spelling on both, and misspelled Gasport location on hang tag. Stiff gold ribbon.
2nd Millennium: 1 ‘n’ hang tag, 2 ‘n’ tush tag; tush tag was corrected, and misspelled Gasport location on hang tag. Stiff gold ribbon.
3rd Millennium: 2 ‘n’ hang tag, 2 ‘n’ tush tag; both tags corrected now, Gosport correct on hang tag. Stiff gold ribbon.
4th Millennium: Correct tags with 2 ‘n’, new ribbed ribbon around the neck.
5th Millennium: Correct tags with 2 ‘n’, 8th Generation “single” tush tag, not looped.
So, what has all this got to do with the value of your beanie baby? Not a great deal unless you want to believe some ‘clickbait’ articles that value them in their thousands to attract readers to their sites. The supply is plentiful and the demand isn’t. You can find the exact beanie listed at $0.99 as $14,500 and beyond! Unfortunately this beanie has an average value of $5 or less.
