    Ugh, I sure do remember.

    I was working there just before graduation. We would have long lines of people at the drive-thru just for them. They had to make sure they had the right one, which sometimes led to long lines at the window.

    It was pure insanity watching adults go crazy over this stuff.

    Now you cant give them away!

      Yeah, I remember everyone going crazy over those things. I never understood the appeal of them, to be honest. To each their own, I guess.

          I worked at McDonalds during Beanie baby nonsense, I never understood it either. One of our managers actually had her arm broken during a mob scene over the beanie babies.

                  I do. I went crazy for a few of them. They are all stashed away in a box somewhere in my bedroom including Pinky and some dog one I took out of the package. I see the open McDonald's ones at the local thrift store in a little plastic bag together at 3 for $2. Of course those ones are missing the tags and labels.

                    Remember? Who can forget?

                    I still have a few boxes of them stashed away in my storage. I even have a few laying out in the open.

                      I got those Beanie Babies still!

                      As a matter of fact, I still got about 3 of them still sealed up in their packaging, only 'cause I thought one-day they might be worth money.

                      ...but as of now, I still don't think they're worth more than 2 bucks in their original unopened packaging (but hell, what do I know?)

                          Remember? I'm still addicted to the things. Just the dogs though. I own about 28 of them. I just started collecting again. A beanie dog goes with me where ever I go. They ride in my pocket. I've got one sitting by my keyboard as I type this, which is odd cause he's usually perched on my shoulder.

                            Yes, yes I do remember... because they STILL SELL THEM. They never went away. Even after "The End" (who I still have) they still make 'em.

                              I never really got the whole beanie baby craze. but I guess since there is a bunch of them I can sort of see the appeal in collecting them.

                              so which is the rarest one?

                                    I remember when they had those beanies at McD's. I loved collecting them. I always got excited to get a new one. I remember a red lobster,an orange fish, and a purple platypus.

                                    Edit. I found this site that shows the beanies that McD's had. I had most of the one's from 1997.
