Sometimes highly valuable objects can be found in the most unexpected places such as toystores, and such treasures can fetch thousands of dollars at thrift stores. TikToker @haydenloalbo is often seen making videos on child care and toddlers, but recently she shared her surprising discovery about bean bags selling for thousands of dollars. She revealed how a brown-colored batty beanie toy turned out to be worth $125,000, and then browsed through the list only to be taken aback after knowing that the price of The Iggy Iguana was $15,000. She discovered that she had the same one in her son's room. The specific beanie bag was supposed to be a colorful chameleon with a distinguishable tongue but was later revealed to be a green iguana. When Hayden was decluttering her son's room, she found the beanie that matched the online version.
