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. 350 Stars For some reason I get random cravings for nonfiction books every once in a while When this book popped up on my feed I kept thinking about it While I was aware of the Beanie craze I was of the sidelines when it happened and I never truly understood why So I figured this might be an interesting readI had recently turned 14 and had just started at a new school Suddenly I was around all these new kids and I uickly developed my first girl crush at least my first girl crush that wasn t on Sarah Michelle Geller or another celebrity on a girl named Jennifer I remember being so excited the first time I got invited to Jennifer s house I walked into a formal dining room with a giant table that was covered with Beanie Babies so many with no room to spare I remember asking Jen just what is all this Well I soon found out after Jen s mother entered the room that this collection of plush toys was much Jen s mother s collection than her own What are these animals that had mom s going crazy Well let s just say I learned a lot about Beanies being Jennifer s friend and wanting to make a good impression on her mother of course But even being Jennifer s friend and even getting a few Beanies as gifts I still never truly understood the obsession This book was very informative While Ty himself only spoke a few words to the author he was able to talk to the people closest to Ty many of his employees and the biggest of collectors Bissonnette was really able to lay out just how the craze happened how people got carried away how it became all about the money and not the kids and finally how and when the bubble burst I feel like now I finally understand at least than I ever did and that s what I wanted out of reading this bookThe biggest thing to take away from this book is that Ty Warner is a flaming asshole I felt so badly for exes family members ex employees and even children he should have been a second father too He treated people like crap and got away with it This book is definitely frustrating in parts While this book is well reported and well written the 350 rating is about my enjoyment and it s hard at times to enjoy a book about an asshole There were also a few times that I thought the book dragged and I did think it ran a little long in the end but I would say it s a slightly above average non fiction read If you were like me and didn t understand the Beanie craze or even if you got a bit wrapped up into it I think you would find this interesting This book really portrays the craze well including the biggest players and behind the scenes of what really went on

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
