And the Clinton Administration did their part to keep the price of Beanie Babies inflated. They prohibited travelers from Asia from bringing more than 2 of any doll into the country.

That was what Clinton treated as a “national security” issue. For Obama, it is bootleg recordings of music, video, and porn.

“But the United States Customs Service, acting upon a request from the Beanie Baby manufacturer, Ty Inc., has placed a limit of one Beanie Baby per family for people re-entering the United States.”

My husband had a co-worker who was wild about beanie babies. I wasn’t made aware of how crazy she was about it until about five hours after I had given birth to our daughter. The co-worker came to my room to visit (she and my husband were both Navy CORPSmen at Balboa Naval Hospital at the time), and I got a run down on everything beanie baby...All I remember thinking was, I was exhausted and starving, and where the heck was my husband. This girl had no clue. So when I see beanie babies now, I get very angry. ;o)

Yeah, I know several people who did the same thing, spending obscene amounts of money on those dumb little Chinese beanbags.

Not long ago, I saw a “price guide” for Beanies that was published at the peak of the craze. It had projections for what their value would be in 10 or 15 years, and there were very few that were projected to be worth less than $100, and there were many in the thousands.

Today you can’t even get the $5 that they originally cost.
