    Ostensibly this is the story of the strange period of time between 1996 and 1999 when adults turned a child's toy into currency but it is just as much an examination of the nature of a fad and the people who create themBeanie Babies were plush stuffed animals which had the then uniue characteristic of being understuffed and fille

    A totally fascinating look at the man behind Beanie Babies and the cultural phenomenon greatly I didn't realize how terrible Ty Warner was so seeing how he played all of the strings here to make Beanie Babies what they were was at once fascinating and kind of appalling Totally worth a read for those who remember this era or who are

The Great Beanie Baby Bubble

In the annals of consumer crazes nothing compares to Beanie Babies With no advertising or big box distribution creator Ty Warner an eccentric college dropout become a billionaire in just three years And it was all. The mom and pop shop that sold these things in my hometown was staffed by two ugly old bitches who hoarded them and only sold to their hag friends breaking my brothers heart as he fumbled to build a collection I take solace in the fact that they probably lost a fortune by jumping on that bandwagon when it reached Medicine Hat Alberta long after the Chicago soccer mums made it big To those twats I say See you next Tuesday you twisted trolls I hope that ratchet Diana bear was worth the tears of my sweet brown eyed brother who only wanted to buy something special with his birthday money If I had an icepickSo good book

review The Great Beanie Baby Bubble

Thanks to collectorsThe end of the craze was just as swift and extremely devastating with rare Beanie Babies deemed worthless as uickly as they'd once been deemed pricelessBissonnette draws on hundreds of intervi. Well this was a dark horse I wasn t sure I would want to listen to an entire audiobook on this topic but it turns out I would have listened to eight hours if available This book takes us through the origin story madness and decline of the Beanie Baby fad I never knew anything about the enigmatic founder Ty Warner but he might be the most interesting person in the world Eccentric insane ruthless genius NEED a biopic immediately I loved hearing about his vision for the Beanies and why he knew he had the key to success it was all about the under stuffing I loved hearing about his laughable techniues randomly retiring Beanies for no reason but to drive sales that resonated so deeply with consumers that he laughed all the way to the bank Although I admired him he was movie villain awful The shady levels he went to to claim ideas including 100s of hang tag poems again need that biopic The amount of money grossed is shocked The influence on ebay and eCommerce was even shocking I also loved reliving that era I unearthed so many memories including McDonald s Teeny Beanies pretty sure my parents drove me to multiple locations so that I could get them all I should call them to thank them the Les and Sue Fox Beanie Baby guidebooks haven t thought of these in 20 years but they are crystal clear now and the specific names and identities of so many of the early animals A trip down memory lane and a juicy Soap Opera all in one

Ews including a visit to a man who lives with his 40000 Ty products and an in prison interview with a guy who killed a coworker over a Beanie Baby debt for the first book on the most extraordinary craze of the 199. Beanie Babies were originally intended as fun playthings for children but as the old saying goes Whenever you have something intended as innocent fun for children you can count on adults to turn it into an obsessive grotesuely over commercialised hobby with the same whimsy content as the Bataan Death March This is the story of the Beanie Baby craze small understuffed plush animals that were produced largely throughout the 1990s When author Zac Bissonnette approached creator Ty Warner at a Toy Fair a few years ago about getting his side of the story for this book the notoriously private Warner told him that he d only give a one sided story so he should go elsewhere Well go elsewhere he did Zac talked to Ty s ex girlfriends his sister employees friends and even high school classmates The product of Zac s research is a book I couldn t put down a tale of two women named Becky who became rich beyond their wildest dreams after bulk buying 5 toys of the people whose obsession bankrupted them of the 64 year old man who shares his house with his eually obsessed daughter and thousands of Beanies of the soap star who spent over 100000 on a collection that s now worthless of the women who loved Ty but really got nothing in return of the upper level employees he treated with disdain of the warehouse workers he treated like royalty of the man who went to prison over a Beanie deal gone wrong of perfection obsession bankruptcy death but mostly of an exceptionally eccentric Willy Wonka esue man who wanted to be the owner of the biggest smartest most successful toy company out there I loved this book It s one of the most captivating things I ve read in years
