Kylie Jenner Spent an Insane Amount of Money on a Beanie Baby
We all know that Kylie Jenner has expensive taste. From her designer handbags to her luxury cars — the makeup mogul has no qualms about spending her money on lavish things. With an assortment of jewelry and Birkin bags — there is very little that Jenner can’t get with the snap of her fingers.
While many of us raised our eyebrows when she purchased her 1-year-old daughter, Stormi a diamond ring for Christmas, many people are even more alarmed at the stacks of money she just spent on a limited-edition Beanie Baby. Honestly, we’ll never get over it.
Beanie Babies were a massive craze in the ’90s
If you’re a child of the ’90s then you’ll remember the obsession surrounding the Ty toys, especially when McDonald’s began placing them in every single Happy Meal. Kids (and adults) went crazy trying to get a robust collection
Though the mini McDonald’s Beanie Babies aren’t worth much these days there are a few rare Beanie Babies including 1997’s Gobbles the Turkey and the Valentino Beanie Baby Bear that are worth thousands of dollars. Yet, nothing tops the astounding amount of money Jenner just handed over for Beanie Baby.
Kylie Jenner just spent $12,000 on a Beanie Baby
On Dec. 13 — Jenner attended an auction curated by Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin. Though most people were delighted by the Kylie Beauty founders’ rendition of “Rise and Shine” — she had reasons for attending the auction. On her Instagram page, she hinted she was, “locking down deals, etc.” Apparently, that deal was purchasing a $12,000 Beanie Baby.
Sources told Page Six that Jenner snagged a green crystal limited-edition “Erin” Beanie Baby. Created by artist Dan Life, Jenner’s new plush item is only one of five ever created so it is a major grab. The Beanie Baby is a vibrant green boasting a ton of shimmery sparkles and a four-leaf clover on its chest.
For those concerned, Jenner didn’t simply purchase the toy on a whim — all of the proceeds went to LIFT Los Angeles and Inner-City Arts. We just hope that Jenner puts her new Beanie Baby away somewhere or else Stormi will certainly think it’s a toy.
Kylie Jenner’s net worth
Though the self-made portion of her billionaire status is certainly questionable– Jenner does have a personal fortune of $1 billion. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians starlet has been cashing checks since her girlhood days when she first appeared on the show. It’s an advantage that actual self-made people did not have, but that is not to diminish any of Jenner’s hard work.
However, when she began selling her Lip Kits in 2015 — things really took off. Now, Jenner has recently sold 51% stake in her company, Kylie Cosmetics, to beauty conglomerate Coty for $600 million. In 2018 Forbes estimated that the company was worth $900 million with an annual revenue of $360 million. It’s certainly worth even more presently.
With all of that and her KUWTK checks — Jenner can certainly afford a $12,000 plush Beanie Baby. We wonder if she has an actual collection of if this is simply a one-of-a-kind purchase.
