A royal blue Peanut the elephant Ty Beanie Baby sold for $600 plus $9.95 shipping on EBay on March 4, 2011. Authenticated by Becky’s True Blue Beans, the Beanie was described as: “MWMT Museum Quality Gorgeous Beanie! Rare Can. Tush!” Back in 2000, this Beanie sold for over $3,000.
Peanut the elephant Beanie Baby was issued on June 3, 1995 and retired on May 1, 1998. However, the royal blue version was only produced from June 3, 1995 to October 1995 before the color was changed to light blue. Peanut the royal blue elephant was only produced with a 3rd generation heart tag. It is believed that only 2,000 of the royal blue version were produced making it one of the rarest Beanie Babies ever made.
