CONDITION CONSIDERATIONS FOR PLUSH TOYS


 

What beanies and plush toys do we buy?

 

We buy all kinds of plush toys in unused conditon as well as rare plush in any condition. We do not buy common beanies that have creased, damaged, written on or missing tags; are worn, played with, dirty, faded, stained or loved; that have price tags on them; or that have odors such as smoke, pet or household odors.

 

What is an "unused" beanie?

 

An unused beanie or plush toy is one that has been purchased by a collector and displayed or stored in closed containers such as a display case, ziplock bags or Rubbermaid type bin. It has been kept in new condition rather than being repetitively handled or played with. All of its tags are still attached and in perfect condition. An unused beanie is clean and safe for us to purchase for our customers.

 

What is an "used" beanie?

 

A used beanie or plush toy has been played with, loved or otherwise handled repetitively. It may have damaged, written on or missing tags. It may be dirty, damaged, stained or have an odor. We do not buy used common beanies and plush toys.

 

What is a "common" beanie?

 

A common beanie or plush toy was mass produced by the millions and readily available for sale to the public. Special items such as "members only" or "limited edition" may also be quite common, depending on the quantity manufactured. Signed and numbered items tend to be more rare. Most styles of Ty Beanie Babies and many other brands were mass produced leaving no real collectible value. There are however rare styles that are worth more.

    How does this work?

     

    If your want to bring them in, we recommend that you make an appointment, so that we can have a buyer available to help you. There is no need to list your beanies, but if you have more than one brand or product line it helps to sort them that way. Our buyer will go through your items, give you pricing and get a check cut for you during your appointment.

     

    If you wish to mail them in, we recommend you read our packing and shipping tips. Please fill out our form to get things started and let us know your beanies are coming. If you have enough to qualify for free shipping, we will get prepaid UPS labels to you. Once your beanies arrive (with our prepaid UPS labels you will be able to track them at www.ups.com), we will process them and mail a check to you within two business days.
