7 Times The Beanie Baby Craze Went Way Further Than Any Of Us Realized

How much of your money did you spend on Beanie Babies? Be honest. More than you'd like to admit right? As much as a lot of us loved our Beanie Babies, there was a limit. Sure, I put my favorites in plastic boxes to keep them from getting dust on them, and okay, of course I put on a tag protector, I'm not a monster.
