Erin Beanie Baby: Guaranteed to Steal Your Heart, Not Your Wallet

Remember the Beanie Babies craze? News reports of Beanie Babies fetching thousands, bidding wars erupting in living rooms across America. Well, those days are over (sorry, Beanie Babies investors!). But here at Father Joe’s Villages, we still have a touch of that magic for you—minus the inflated price tag!

Introducing Erin the Bear

Meet Erin, a 1998 emerald green Beanie Baby cutie (and much more realistically priced than her supposed million-dollar counterparts you might see online). Crafted from super-soft 100% Tylon, Erin boasts adorable black eyes, a cute button nose, and a charmingly embroidered white shamrock right on her chest: perfect for celebrating your Irish heritage (or just your love for all things cuddly).

Get Rich Quick—Rich with Smiles

While we can’t guarantee Erin will make you a millionaire overnight, we can guarantee she’ll bring a smile to your face and maybe even some nostalgic memories. After all, who can resist a classic Beanie Baby, especially at this incredible price?

Spend Less than a Million to Support Our Mission

Forget the outrageous eBay listings (seriously, a million bucks?!). Bring home a piece of Beanie Baby history (and a whole lot of cuteness) with Erin the Bear. And don’t forget. By purchasing Erin, you’re not only getting a nostalgic friend for much less than a million. You’re also helping Father Joe’s Villages achieve its mission to end homelessness in San Diego.
