    Warman's Bean Plush Field Guide Worth Buying

    The book is worth buying because it does include all of the beanie babies up to a certain date (most recent supposedly). It gives you an idea of what they are worth to most people. I used it to figure out how much I had in beanies and how much I could ask for them when selling them. The only unfortunate thing about these types of books is that they are out of date after a period of time because there's always new beanies being produced and the value keeps going up and down depending upon who wants them and how flooded the market is with old ones and how many news ones are produced and quantity produced.
