CD-ROM//ULTIMATE COLLECTOR FOR BEANIE BABIES (Palladium Interactive, for PC, $19.99) The plush-doll craze reaches new levels of preposterousness with this tool that tracks and organizes your stash of Beanie toys. Think of it as Quicken, except the valuables you’re tallying are Bongo the Monkey and Inky the Octopus. Use the CD-ROM in tandem with the supplemental website, http://www.beanieinfo. com, and get up-to-date news and Beanie prices on (natch) the Beandex. Heaven forbid you should play with the things. B
