12-31-2004 FRIDAY

Last year we bade farewell on this date in 2003, to Randy and Theresa.

It is with regret and hope for the best in the future to come that we say goodbye this year 2004 to Beanwatcher.

By the way, some good intentioned web sellers will offer good prices, accept your payment, and hold your money indefinitely. Later after waiting so long, you might get your order or can luckilly get a refund, dependability is lost. Such experiences have occurred at a certain web hut. BeanieNews will no longer post new links or news from this type of site if known.

Ms. Janie has a photo of the new Beanie Bopper
Footie & his Teenie companion!!

Ms. Janie has also reported the announcement of the new
Ty State bears!!

I (heart) Atlanta, I (heart) Texas, I (heart) L.A. and I (heart) Chicago are shown on the postcard.

They will be available at one of 20 schedueled shows and will be named for either a city or a state. I guess we can expect 50 new bears? At least they won't all look alike, like the Issy bears only distinguishable by their tags.

New York has already had I (heart) New York spelled out, and I (heart) NY, abbreviated. This might be a variation to look for in the new beanies. Speaking of variations, beanie baby Union has a flag nose and the UK version has a black nose!

6-15-2004 TUESDAY

Ty beanie baby retirees:
Sam red, Sam white & Sam blue!!!

One dozen new teenie beanie babies are expected to arrive at McDonalds this July one of who will likely be a teenie Ronald Mcdonald Beanie!

One dozen unopened Ronald McDonald Bears!
Buy them now for ONLY $3,999.00!!! $$$ SOLD!!!

Ronald was retired on May 3rd, 2004.

The seller wrote:

"This is an EXTREMELY rare set of 12 Ronald McDonald Beanie Bears produced for the Operators Convention in Orlando. The package has NOT been opened. Date of Birth is 4-19-2004, which is also the day Jim Cantalupo, CEO, passed away. Additionally, Charlie Bell was promoted to President and CEO on this day.

These bears were produced to celebrate 25 years of Happy Meals, and will now forever be remembered as sharing their birthdate with the CEO's last day of life. These bears are in perfect condition, and have never even been handled, as they are in original packaging. You'll find plenty of individual bears for sale, where else will you find a rare package such as this?

These are in-hand, and will be shipped immediately upon receiving FULL payment. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for a true McDonald's / TY collector. Don't let it slip away!!!!!!!!!

Did I mention that TY has already retired this bear - meaning this is truly a RARE opportunity."
