Ty Warner (Jan 01, 2006, 12:59 AM)

"Happy New Year to you. Thank you for a wonderful 2005. I'll never forget this past year and I look forward to a great 2006. I wish everyone around the world all the best, and I pray for peace and healing. I will do my best to continue the tradition, the unexpected. Thanks to you, we can celebrate 20 years of fun.

Two snow and icicled ledges of Tystore windows are adorned with Shades and Curtains inside. It seems that some new Beanies will soon be revealed!

The Beaniehut has launched a new website that is promised to bring new excitement to collecting Ty Beanies! "Things Are Going To Get Hot In The Beanies".

Bean Talk is in it's "first phase" and very exciting news and excitement is promised to be forthcoming!

Four Chat rooms and subscriptions for news briefs are available. Significant sums of money are being sought from investors to assist in the sites development. For $24 per year, Subscribers can show their collections and tell their stories to other Beanie Baby collectors.

Imitation is said to be the highest form of flattery. The new site uses this sites title, Beanie News and has a running description of recent beanie news styled much like what has here on this page. Auction links are promised to be forthcoming as well.

Firefighters' charity group brings cheer to New Orleans

"...80 percent of the city's firefighters are homeless and living on a Carnival Cruise Line ship that's docked on the river. Police officers and other displaced municipal workers live on that ship, plus a second cruise liner docked there."

"Chicago firefighter Richard Pinskey, who set up the Ignite the Spirit Fund, said he and other Chicago firefighters spent the month of December holding fund drives for their Santa Claus mission to the hurricane-ravaged state of Louisiana. They managed to raise $22,000, and also received donations, including 2,000 "Mardi Gras" Beanie Babies, from Ty Inc."

Not enough coverage of good news in Iraq

"4-H of Ulster County sent over Beanie Babies and other stuffed toys. We were able to distribute those to the kids in the communities. They were kids who didn't otherwise have much in the way of toys or personal belongings."

The Science of Holiday Sales
"Stuff Half Off in Limited Quantities!" Tricks retailers use...

"Scarcity: The makers of Beanie Babies had it right when they made limited quantities of these furry friends. Consumer desire skyrocketed for a beanbag toy... Look around you, and see whether you can pick out any item in your possession that you could not live without -- or live with a different brand."

Ty Warner

His, Hers and #1 Teacher have been retired in Ty Store!

Steve St. Pierre owner of Once Upon a Toy says his niche is to be a specialty toy retailer!

"Q: What are you looking for in a toy for resale?"

'A: "I love to buy the best toys. I love to find the things that no one else will think will be a hit. I'm not only looking for a super-duper hit, I want to buy something that can sell. So many times, my employees and people around me, see vendors selling something. Beanie Babies are a good example. When I first saw them, it reminded me of a bean bag toy I had. It was very inexpensive and I bought some in huge quality. I thought they would be cool, and the sales person selling them said, 'Wow.' " ' Read more...

Happy Kwanza a!!!

The Macomb Daily

"Dee Richards' American Legion Post 261 Ladies Auxiliary in Roseville sent Beanie Babies toys to a military police unit in Iraq last year."

"They passed out the Beanies to the children in their area," Richards said. "The group that was designated has now been deployed home, and I still had around 50 Beanies to send."

"Richards hooked up with Merritt, who oversees Operation Caring Friends, who connected Richards with Master Gunnery Sgt. Constance Dillard, public affairs chief at Camp Fallujah, Iraq."

Merritt, a resident of Romeo. "She assures that items such as Beanie Babies and school supplies are given to the Civilian Affairs Group. Right now, the 6th CAG is in place. These are the units that visit the schools, the orphanages, and talk to the children on the streets. These are multiforce groups consisting of all branches."

Exactly one year ago today, a powerful Tsunami destroyed coastal communities in 12 countries from South-East Asia in Thailand to Northern Africa. While some relief has helped many are still in need. The Gulf Coast later this year severely destroyed parts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. This year, an earthquake of great proportion shook Pakistan. These major catastrophes in addition to war, and those everyday disasters usually suffered around the world as well as where you live, have strained the ability of charitable organizations. They still need your help. It will take many years to recover. Please continue to support your charitable organizations.

Today is both the first night of Hanukkah as well as Christmas Day!

Happy Holidays!!!

Krystal Johnson, age 7, of South Bend, sold her own toys to raise money for St. Lawrence Catholic Church’s Giving Tree. This year donations will benefit the Katrina Hurricane victims in Bogalusa, Louisiana!

“I didn’t go higher than one dollar” for the toys, Krystal said. Three Beanie Baby dogs were special, she said, “because dogs are my favorite animals.” But “Brownie,” “Blackie” and another dog were sold to help people “that were in the hurricane.”

Ty Cyberboard:

This afternoon, Karen Brit posted a message to "Please put WWF on Chitraka in the Tystore."

The posting link went instead of to an expanded message, accidentally to the Ty Cyberboard Main Menu! The post was quickly removed and hopefully will return with the proper link.

All of the endangered species Beanies proceeds go to help the World Wildlife Fund. They each have a WWF symbol posted over their Tystore pictures. Chitraka is missing his symbol which would identify him as a WWF Beanie and a WWF donation oriented offer.

On 12-31-2004 we bade farewell to Beanwatcher who however returned to give us all a full year of great Beanie news. On 12-31-2003, we bade farewell to Randy and Theresa.

It is with regret and hope for the best in the future to come that we say goodbye this year 2005. We will miss the timely news and great dedication to learning more about Ty Beanies...

Beanwatcher retires....

December 19: You Will Surely Be Missed
Originally, I was planning to post news of a retirement on December 31, 2005 - a time when we "ring out the old" before we "ring in the new." However, with Christmas soon approaching and my desire to spend more time with family, friends, and loved ones, I've decided to post the news right now. Effective today, the Bean Watcher site has officially retired. To view the announcement, click here.

Goodbye, Farewell, Adieu, Sayonara, Aloha, So Long, Cheerio, Hasta la vista, Bye-Bye, Ta-Ta, Cheers, Au revoir, Ciao, Adiós, Arrivederci, Shalom, Auf Wiedersehen, Toodles, Bon voyage.

No matter how you say it, you will surely be missed.

Ty Cyberboard:

I am so sad to read of Beanwatcher's retirement the news and pictures there were worth checking everyday. It was always nice to see news there before it was announced on this site. Beanwatcher will be greatly missed!! Thanks for all of the info for so many years!!

I just finished reading my "last report" from Beanwatcher. How very sad to see this site close. He will certainly be missed by a lot of Ty collectors. I would read his site faithfully every morning before even "waking up" properly. A well informaed site indeed-always the latest happenings in Tyland-sometimes even before they officially happened.

I wish you all the best BEANWATCHER and you will definitely be missed by this collector! GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS!

I am saddened by the departure of this very wonderful site. Orangeicecream, once you told me that you visited this site every morning, I did too! It became a way of life for me. Yes, the site had GREAT news and was well written and I so much enjoyed the pictures that people sent in! Like the ones Ann and Tim of Texas just sent in----pictures of their home decorated with BEANIES for Christmas. Such pictures light up ones heart and make for HAPPY feelings! I printed out the farewell page and so tomorrow and for several days---I will have to refer to that page to know that it is REALLY gone! Hugs to you, orangeicecream and to the many others that read this daily! IT WILL BE MISSED! Merry Christmas and God Bless!

NEWS OF THE DAY!!! BEANWATCHER Website Retired - Oh My !
Too bad - I will miss it!

This is yet another SAD day for this Collectible....n/m

Bean Watcher has RETIRED his site!!!
I read the awful news this morning. The Bean Watcher site will no longer exist. I love Ms. Janie, but I felt his site was more informative and more up to date on TY products than any others. Bean Watcher will be MISSED!

Beanwatcher site is no more!!
A sad sign of the times for beanies. Beanwatcher will be missed!!

Doesn't It Tell Us About the State of Beanie Collecting or What? n/m

Re:Beanwatcher site is no more!!
Yes Beanwatcher site will very much be missed.
I wish him well! :-)

OMG. Just the other day Beanwatcher led me to photos of Jan. beanie releases.
I emailed a goodbye message to the Beanwatcher.

Re:OMG. Just the other day Beanwatcher led me to photos of Jan. beanie releases
I will miss Beanwatcher very much as I LOVED the pictures that so many people sent to this site. It was so well written and such a pleasant site to visit----a MUST for me every morning. GOODBYE HUGS to this very sweet person that wrote for this site!

Re:Beanwatcher site is no more!! Maybe now Ty can keep the newbies a secret
until Ty announces them. Beanwatcher posts what they are then everyone wants to post it to the Ty board and I like waiting till Ty announces them with pictures

Re:Re:Beanwatcher!? Say It Is'nt sooo!!!!!
I remember Him saying a while back He was Closing the site.then after Many folks asked him to reconsider,He kept It going!
I for one will surely miss Bean watcher!! I have Been a Regular reader from day one!
I loved the news,Photois,and the Style In which It was presented! Beanwatcher Rocks!!!
P.S. to twigs...I'm so sure That others will stay on the web and share the New releases before they are official.
Happy Holidays!!!

Re:Re:Re:Beanwatcher!? Say It Is'nt sooo!!!!!
I also will miss his site, i found it very informative, and loved the idea , of seeing the new ones before ty put them out,,
He will be missed by me

Maybe now Ty can keep the newbies a secret
Please keep in mind that Beanwatcher posted news that was SENT to him. News of newbies will still be out before the "official" Ty announcement since that news is also available on other sites.

Thanks for the information
I will surely miss the beanwatcher. It is/was a great site. Sad!

I will really miss BW, I looked forward to reading it every day!
I wish BW nothing but the best though! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! TC

ODE to BeanWatcher.......
Beanwatcher was the best beanie baby site out there. He always had the news updated WHEN IT HAPPENED! Always posted pictures promtly and never had any other articles about stuff that wasn't beanie related(and we really didnt care about). This is the last site that was worth checking everyday. I understand why he closed, just took too much time. I am also getting a little tired of beanies latley. They aren't what they used to. Will be very selective next year.
Thanks Beanwatcher for always posting my pictures of IN HAND beanies and for always being so nice. Although it would have been nice to see a face, age, and name to the person who ran this site, its ok. Have a great 2006 Year Beanwatcher!

My sentiments echo CRB exactly. Beanwatcher was the site to go to for current info and photos. I, too, will miss it immensely
mz magoo

Re:ODE to BeanWatcher.......RIGHT ON CHGO!!!
Well said! I too thouroughly enjoyed Beanwatcher since the begining. I also Loved the fact that It was The Beans And Nothing but the Beans!!
I too am Becoming Disenchanted with Beanies Lately,I too plan to cut back In 06.
HaPPy Holidays!!
peace :)


Beanwatcher was a beanie news site.....NM

GRIPE! I certainly see alot of BAH HUMBUGGING!
I see beanie collectors that say they are cutting way back because they don't like the 2006 releases. Wait a minute! Ty just gave us some gorgeous beanie releases this Fall & for Christmas! Let's count our beanie blessings! Well, now that I've got that said, I am sad to see Beanwatcher go. He will be missed.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
My Ty heart

We will miss the timely news and great dedication to learning more about Ty Beanies...

Sorry to see another site go but I can understand why. Sites like this takes up a lot of time not to mention money. Wish you the best in the coming year and thanks for all the memories, take care Beanwatcher.

The Punkies are:

Itty Bitty Kiss (Beanie Sized)

The Classics are Caressa, Crush, KissyCat, Meows, Pitter & Patter

The only secondary dealer carrying the BBOC variations as individual beanies, started off by charging $19.99 for each of the desired BBOCspecial edition beanies, Spot with no spot, Brownie,Punchers and Patti.

The price was raised one day later to $29.99 for one special beanie from each set of 9 BBOC Beanies. The entire BBOC set of 9 sells for $45.00

In order to get all of the oddities, a buyer would have to buy 5 sets and hope that 5 different sets are sent.

I would rather pay extra $$ to get a real Spot with no Spot than to pay $20 or $30 for a BBOC Spot with no spot. Anybody feel like I do?

I tend to agree with you. I was fortunate in getting my original Raspberry Patti's, but I can't see paying out so much for these replicas. They are cute, but I think that is too much to pay to get all of the so-called rare ones.

I would like BBOC to offer them individually for sale @ $5 each n/m

That is a wonderful idea to have individual or sets of the rare ones perhaps for a limited time if that would help.

That could help prevent the current price of $30.00 plus shipping @ $35.00 being charged for 1 of 9 that costed $50.00 with shipping.

If that site is charging $35.00 are they selling the 8 leftovers for $15.00 plus shipping?

Yeah, sure...

Puffkins heart tags fit the oversized BBOC hearttags according to elephanny, a Ty Cyberboard member.

Beaniehut has sent notice of an updated delvery shedule. There was no mention however so far, of the Asia Flag bears.

Hopefully this will not turn into cancelled orders.

In 2003, Beaniehut canelled an order for Teenie Beanie Bopper Super Shuto only when asked about the long time shipping delay.

According to posts on Ty Cyberboard Grins and Gripes:

Aotearoa New Zealand flag nosed bear is selling for over $200 on the bay and has 14 bids."

"I think this must be the rare one I just traded for 1 from New Zealand and the person I traded with told me the bay in New Zealand just sold one for $300. it seems to be the very hard to find bear"

I saw the complete set of 6 flag nose bears sell on the bay for under $300. Just can't tell about the non shoppers.

Ty Cyberboard Question:

Did any one get a punchers bboc...


Yes, I got Punchers in Asst. 4

I don't know which ones will be hard to find.

America the Asst. 2 and she was real lucky, she got two oddities in her package, a Spot without spot and a Brownie.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone...I'm off to visit with my family. God Bless!!

11-23-2005 WEDNESDAY

BBOC ASST #3 ITEM # 49014 contained the variations Brownie, Pink Patti and Spot with a spot.

BBOC ASST #5 ITEM # 49016 contained the variations Cubbie, Magenta Patti and Spot with a spot.

The Beanwatcher has 3 photos of ASST #5 opened package. Photo 1 Photo 2 Photo 3

In order to get all of the variations, 3 different Patti, 2 different Spot and 2 different Cubbie/Brownie there is are 5 ASST packages.

The heart tags are oversized and pointy. The standard plastic heart tag protectors are too small!

According to KarenBrit on the Ty Cyberboard:

When collectors placed orders for a set of Original 9 beanies, Ty added some variations to them too. Hence, there are 5 different packages, a.k.a. Assts (assortments). The assortment # and 'package number' is only known when you receive the package, not when you order.

Asst #1 49012 Patti Maroon (for both Raspberry & Magenta colors)
Asst #2 49013 Spot no Spot
Asst #3 49014 Brownie
Asst #4 49015 Punchers
Asst #5 49016 Patti Deep Fuschia

All packages received 1 of above and Chocolate, Squealer, Splash, Flash and Legs and then the more common other beanie variations, such as light pink Patti, Spot with a Spot, Pinchers, Cubbie.

Love: Karen

It seems that the Tystore versions of the Hurricane Beanies are no longer on the main page which now links to the Retailer finder page.
They are still available however in the Tystore which has a purchase link above the store!

From the Ty Cyberboard:

Question regarding the Hurricane anyone who can help
The homepage now says the trio are 'available at a retailer near you' the option to order online is no longer there. my question is = are the beanies at my local hallmark the same exact beanies we had the option of purchasing online? or are there noted variations/differences?

The difference between the two sets are:

Tystore tags with a $2.00 donation

Retail tags with a $1.00 donation

According to elecboy, "the online's donation goes specifically to victims of Katrina whereas the retailers beanies'go to the rc disaster relief fund."

Plymouth made a tv appeaance this morning on the Today Show. 5 million in Beanie Babies were donated to the toy drive. A big Classic dog possibly Kodi was there too!

11-19-2005 SATURDAY

Tystore Exclusive Hurricane Katrina bears Louisianna, Mississippi and Alabama are shipping and some have already arrived!

Hopefully, the new BBOC 9 will be next!

11-18-2005 FRIDAY

The Tystore Hanukkah Beanie is similar but different from the retail version. The emblem on the retail version has a Menorah and the Tystore exclusive has a Dreidle emblem on it's chest.

The Ty Cyberboard allows some criticism but censors most on the Ty Cyberboards.

Here is one censored sentiment.

Is a Beanie still a Beanie without any beans or plastic pellets, or is it just another stuffed toy?

The Cyberboard has chosen not to post this simple question asked about Iceberg who barely has about 8 barely detectable pellets in each paw.

A bean bag has a certain feel and gives a specific form of comfort when touched, held or sat on your lap. Ty beanie fabrics add to this soft and floppy sensation.

When placed on a flat or an uneven surface, a bean or pellet filled item will take the form of that surface and can be adjusted to take a preferred position as done when sitting a beanie down.

A photographer can use a bean bag or a beanie to steady a camera.

People who collect Beanie Babies expect Beanies. There are other Ty plush lines that sport that posed stuffed toy characteristic, and there are collectors of those categories of Ty products.

It is starting to be difficult to know if a beanie will or will not be a beanie. Please Ty, put the pellets back in ALL of the Beanie Babies.

11-17-2005 THURSDAY

Two new Beanies have been introduced as Tystore exclusives!

Happy Hanukkah & Muffler!

Icepack has arrived and unfortunately although he may be pretty;
there are less than 10 pellets in each paw, barely detectable.
The body of the bear is non-distinguishable from any other stuffed toy.







seriously considering quitting the product is defective


more from Ty Cyberboard:

Getting ready for the Holltdays and cant help but notice...
that there is a REMARKABLE difference in the amount of beans--in comparing beanies from '97 to present day.. I know that someone is always posting this and today it's my turn! :) But it's a splash of cold water in the face and I can't help but feel a little betrayed-


You are so right. I have stopped buying all the common beanies, and just collect special ones. The beanies are not soft anymore; they are spongy.

Motomachi, Kitamura, Japan, Exclusive Senna Kun!

The Beanwatcher has discovered that "there are three versions... two Beanie Babies and one Ty Classic".

11-12-2005 SATURDAY

The Beanwatcher has found proof! The discussion boards have been the sounding board for a number of lively discussions about whether or not beanies were being sold or not in Walgreens.

The sale of beanies in such a venue was rejected by most who thought it would cheapen the product usualy sold in Hallmark or higher end stores. Beanies would be mishandled, less clean and hangtags would be bent by unknowing handlers or store customers. Others did not mind and expected lower prices.

The Beanwatcher visited Walgreens online store and has found beanies being sold at one store, 2 for $10.00!

The Saturday Night Live, "Thomas and Dobbins" lawyer comedy skit mentioned Beanie Babies in the dialogue.
It read, "remember the big beanie baby crash of 96"?

Bean Watcher's Boxed White Shooting Star Contest Rules!

(November 9 - 18, 2005)

Ms. Janie is having a Holiday contest soon!!

Several months ago there was a bit of controversy about the sale of Ty Beanie Baby prototypes on EBay by various sellers.

Since then Beanies 4 You has been selling authenticated prototypes for quite some time now and it Seems that that issue has not resurfaced and may have been resolved.

11-8-2005 TUESDAY

BeanWatcher is going to have a contest tomorrow!
See the prize package!

There will be a one day "Contest to Win a Boxed White Shooting Star"!

Contest details will be posted tomorrow!

Peace Mania's contest ends today. Last chance to enter!

11-6-2005 SUNDAY

The report of grey/gray/silver Shooting Star being sold out was from a Harrod's employee.

Visitor's to the store following this report have stated that the bears were plenty.

This occurred when Smash was reported to be online at the US Open site.

There were no Smash bears on the web site but at the same time while selling for over $50.00 on EBay, the visitors at the US Open in Queens, NY reported that there were plenty of bears on site at the Arthur Ashe Stadium.

The Hurricane Katrina charity Ty bears, Alabama, Misissippi and Louisiana were sold in two versions, as Tystore exclusives and retail.

A Beanwatcher report states that "these fundraising bears made their premier at the UK-based store"!

Many had assumed that these were in production and that was the reason they had not been seen yet.

These US Charity Bears are available at Harrod's in London, England!

None are available HERE in the USA yet. Very Strange!!!

Some on the Cyberboard think that because this is charity related that anyone who complains is a Scrooge. Common sense dictates in this sites opinion that the bears for US relief should have been released in the USA where pre-orders were taken and where this event occurred first!

The US doesn't get to buy UK, European or Asia Pacific themed beanies before the country the beanie represents gets them first.

The Tystore beanies have not been sent.

Credit cards have not been charged.

The $2.00 per beanie donations have therefore not yet gone to charity.

The Red Cross is reported to be going broke.

that was a little hard on msmundy, the concern over why the UK has received these beanies and customers in the US have not; is no way a lack of respect for the victims. Obviously if someone purchased the beanies, they supported the cause. Wondering why you have not been shipped your beanies when Harrods has them; is no lack of respect for victims. Especially when there is no updates from Ty regarding the shipment of the beanies.


BIGCOLLECTOR a Ty Cyberboard member posted the following!

I posted this below but I'll repeat the information I was told by Harrods Customer services.

1000 boxed/certificated white Shooting Stars
500 boxed/certificated silver Shooting Stars
White Shooting Stars in boxes numbered 1 to 100 were signed by Ty Warner in black biro on the left hand side of the swing tag.
No silver Shooting Stars were signed by Ty - I have been advised any that appear are fakes.
Of the two Shooting Stars there are less Silver than white - Please don't ask me to speculate on quantites of these, but we're talking thousands!

The certificates have a printed signature on them. The interesting thing is that it is Ty's full signature 'Ty Warner', rather than the familiar 'ty' we see are used to seeing. The swing tags are personally oversigned in back biro like the Billionaire bears.

The White Shooting Star's certificates have a single number, i.e. 14. The silver ones have the number of a total i.e. 037/500.

The texture of the materials is that of regular Beanies, such as the I Love bears. They are also following the recent trend of having more fiberfill and less beans.


On Nov 05, 2005 redrover50, a Ty Cyberboard member commented:

more uk beanies - again filled with golden beans

I give up buying uk beanies. when secondary dealers buy 10 or 20 of the rare ones at a time and sell them for 10 or more times than what retailers sell them for, it' just isn't worth it no more.

A recent Ty Halloween Daily Prize drawing for a Ty signed Ghoul Beanie Baby as well as a Certificate of Authenticity for the autograph has lost it's bidders.

The auction began at $10.00, was soon $51.00 then $200.00 (Reserve Met) with 2.5 more days to go.
Now with 13 hours to go the current bid is $41.50!

1.44 minutes to go.
The current bid is US $75.98 (Reserve not met) !

Bidding has ended for this item.

11-4-2005 FRIDAY

The three new Harrod's Toy Kingdom Exclusives are Classic Beanie Moondust and Beanie Babies (Grey) Shooting Star and (White) Shooting Star.

Ty Harrod's Exclusives!

redrover50, a Ty Cyberboard member has noted:

Merrybelle - two types?
I bought my Merrybelles today. They had two different head angles. One just slightly turned to her left and the second was turned all the way left so she is looking over her shoulder - pretty much profile. I bought both, but think I like the profile best. She is one adorable beanie.

Gramps and Grams have been retired in the Tystore!

BeanieRick, a Ty Cyberboard member has noted:

Goody-Tasty-Yummy! Color combinations

all should have the following:

Goody: Green Trim, Red Hat, Green PomPom

Tasty: White Trim, Green Hat, Red PomPom

Yummy: White Trim, Strip Hat, White PomPom

On the BAY there are currently 2 auctions which show Goody with a White Trim.

If someone has something other than these color combinations, please send picture to a Beanie site.


The three TyStore Exclusive Hurricane Bears are going to start shipping in 4-6 weeks according to Ty Cyberboard member mybabymu!

11-3-2005 THURSDAY

A winner of the recent Ty Halloween Daily Prize drawing received a Ty signed Ghoul Beanie Baby as well as a Certificate of Authenticity for the autograph as a part of their prize package.

A number of Ty Cyberboard participants thought it to be ungrateful and wrong for the winner to have immediately auctioned the win. A sympathetic poster noted that the seller for all we know could need the cash. (Everybody should understand that!)

The auction began at $10.00, was soon $51.00 and is now $200.00 (Reserve Met)with 2.5 more days to go. Unlike Opie, this one is SOLD!

11-2-2005 WEDNESDAY

Collecting Beanie Babies is a great hobby. Collecting Beanies can also be quite expensive. A collector who seeks to have all of the Beanies can spend quite a bit of money doing so.

First of all, there are all of the Beanies ever made. A collector can buy older introductions in a wide variety of price ranges in auctions and from secondary dealers. At some point the rarer new and old beanies will cost more than $2.00 - $5.00 - $10.00 - $15.00 - $25.00 - $50.00 - $75.00 - $100.00 - $200.00 - $500.00 - $2,000.00 - $5,000.00... You have to decide where to draw the line. Billionaire Bears can cost from $400.00 to $1,200.00 each!

Next there are the monthly introductions and the special occasion or International beanies. No matter what it is or what it looks like without it the collection is incomplete.

If you collect Attic Treasures, Beanie Kids or Beanie Boppers, great!! These categories of Ty have been discontinued! But Beanie Babies keep on coming!

A few recent Beanie introductions were missing their "beans" (plastic pellets). This was greatly protested by collectors. Without their "beans" their special attraction is lost. That particular feel of a beanie, along with fine workmanship and attention to detail makes up the beanies attraction and desirability.

Hence the controversy, Wallmart vs. Hallmark

-Beanie vendor placements in discount stores vs. Beanie vendor placements in fine stores....

The following Ty Cyberboard Post regarding reports of Beanies in Walmart addresses the high cost factor...

Happy Halloween! How are you doing my friend? Long time not see...or chat.

I think the key words about collecting Ty are "can afford to" Ha ha! I still LOVE my Ty collection but can't afford to keep sending the little money I get to Ty :(

I agree with you Patty Buddy, Ty product is good enough and its price is affordable enough for people (those who actually have some income)to continue buying and collecting as long as it is available, regardless of what stores sell the product.

We might not be able to get a lot of money back for our collection as it was years ago but then again most of us collectors wouldn't want to sell it. Right?

Hi There,
To be honest with you......No. I don't think they are coming back and to be honest with you I think the better one sells them the better. The market is nearly bottomed out. Unless you want to hold on to them for 50 years I think all of got stuck with a bunch of stuffed animals.
Sorry.......I am sure it is not what you wanted to hear. But it really is the way it is.

Subject: Re: Regarding Your Post Will they ever return?

They still have some popularity with adults as well as children, however I think the craziness has gone out of it. Nobody waits outside a store that is expecting a shipment and the prices have finally settled down some with very few exceptions. The collecting of bears has definitely slowed down, animals, especially cats and dogs are still selling well. Fred

Subject: Re: Regarding Your Post Will they ever return?

Thanks yes
I'm eBay ID aj$

subject: sent to Mrs Janie 12/20/2004 read the part about Tulip bulbs

I never thought I would be saying someone 41 was Younger than me, I'm 47 "Arthur J. Schiavo", aj$ on eBay's most hated! But as an Older Gentleman (using that word lightly) and still Collecting Myself I hope this makes you feel a little better!

As a Mercenary I did start collecting because, Where can you buy retail a $5 beanie that many times was worth $30+! Prior to me getting involved in early 1998 much more than that I heard!

I was never fooled into thinking these beanies would make me rich someday, I just now collect because I like them and love to get the old 3rd Gen. tags sometimes just discarded when I buy Bulk beanies at 50 cents each! Still a Thrill what can I say!

My son came home from school in 1997 and said one of the Girls that I coached when my now 17 year old was playing T-Ball had a collection of beanies. Arthur Jr. said "Kayla has 30 beanies and we don't have any." I said go ahead buy them. I didn't want the kids I coached thinking I was cheap. So as we got more and more beanies, I got kind of hooked on the financial similarity to the Tulip Bulb mania of 1600's and stock market mania I had observed at the time.

My older son Charles now 21, Listed a few in eBay auctions in late 1998 when Halo was hot. I couldn't believe somebody trusted a Zero rated person and bid $169 for Halo, Santa, 1998 Holiday teddy and a couple others. I was not only cynical of the internet but amazed someone would send money over the Internet. As a Stockbroker I had been negative on the Internet stocks and lost money Selling them Short.

Now a Believer and while teaching the kids Business by selling at shows on weekends we bought $200 worth of Ty Series 1 cards and when I was lucky enough to find a Ty Warner Signed Gold Patti clear Series 1 Card.

Only 9 in 96 million cards were this rare. When I sold this card on eBay for $3550 on 1/24/1999 I was hooked big time.

I decided that I would become a commodity trader on the Internet nearly full time. That is my way of saying I sell beanies on the internet.

I hate to Bore you with all this and Like you beanies aren't as profitable for us either anymore.

But like you are doing now Diversify a bit into other area's but keep your WEBSITE Going!

Not just for me but, look at it this way, NFL Franchises and Baseball Franchises always complain about losing money but at the same time the Value of their Franchise keeps going up.

Your website My aj$ on eBay are like these many years ago! Like many who didn't think NFL teams etc. would make it if we can hang in there during the tough times Nothing as big as beanies got will just go away!

Like I mentioned in the Tulip Bulb mania of 1600's that was in Dutch Holland in 1674.

Many saw their Rare Tulips go down in value 93% or more and lost fortunes trading them ( at one time a Rare Tulip was worth the equivalent of 6 Oxen, a House etc.)!

BUT Today the Horticulture center of the word is in Holland! The Point I am trying to make Like the Players who played for the Love of the game in the Early years and have watched their Sons benefit and prosper today, we are collecting for the love of the Hunt whatever, but I honestly believe we are building are own Franchises that hopefully our Aires can squander!

Seriously, I was a very successful stock trader who watched these internet stocks sky rocket and then Fall and thought to myself this internet Phenomenon is for real and I decided I would try selling a Commodity on eBay, that you call Beanies!

I liken it to McDonald saying, do you really think we sell burgers to make Money, then when people say "yes", they laugh and say we are In the Real Estate Business and have Prime locations in every city!

Between your hits on your website and the steady customers that continue to hit my site, I would say we have some pretty good REAL Estate on the internet and THAT should not be taken lightly!

Please stay with it if not for the Mercenary reasons I suggest, then because I check your site every day and rely on it for the best beanie info on the Net!

What do YOU get everyone?

Ty UK has been seen instead of Ty Europe on some Ty Beanie Baby Aware tags.

Ty UK Teenie Beanies were expected to arrive in Europe ever since the last release of Happy Meal Teenie Beanies in the US that included a Ronald McDonald Teemie Beanie plus 11 more.

Unexpectedly in addition to the Ronald Teenie, new Teenie Beanies have been introduced / renamed. There are eight UK Teenie Beanie Babies. Only 5 of the 8 Teenies names are known so far. They are, Pete (Purple), Rachel (red), Molly (Magenta), Ryan (royal blue), and Ronald McDonald.


My comment on Jimbo was censored on the Ty Cyberboard. This Beanie has been reissued as a Beanie for a child who has lost a loved one.

The subject of this issue is however off limits on the Ty Talk Cyberboard. The words "killed" & "Passed away" were not allowed so I changed those words to "un alive". Here it is:

Your post to the Ty bulletin board was not approved.

Reason for denial:Language

Sometimes it may not be what you say, but how you say it. Please revise the tone of your post. Thank you.

Post Subject: Re:Abby Press has a new beanie

Post Content:
This is rather odd and disturbing use of a circus beanie.

I had such an occasion last month. My son was made un alive (edited for posting). My post here was censored. I decorated (Around the Urn) with flower holding beanies, Bandage, You're Special, Grandmother, Dearly, Star (Blue & Gold), Adore (holding a heart), several Flitter, Pride, Ramble & Weenie.

I would never consider a Circus beanie unless the person worked for Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey (some of the best people in the world).

Posts are often censored. Criticism is restricted. It was thought by Ty Cyberboard participants at the time of the posting that the introduction by Abbey Press of Jimbo as a grief bear was unauthorized.

According to The Beanwatcher the Abbey Press Jimbo Kit is authorized by Ty after all. (Type beanie in the search box).

What do you think ...about Jimbo ...about censorship of differing opinions?

RE: Rumors

Hi would you please let me know if the rumors I've heard are true that none of the ty beanies are worth anything and not worth collecting? While I was in Florida for a few months during the summer my son told me this was on TV in New York and I find it very hard to believe.

Being that I am very worried about this I've been checking out ebay and other sites to find out what the beanies are now selling for and I am finding the prices for them have dropped drastically and the original beanies are selling for practically nothing at all now and can be bought for as little as $1.99 on ebay, such as Tabasco and Germania and others. Being that I have many of the original ones and from 1998 and 1999 I am not wondering what I should do with them and if I should just get rid of them at this point.

Is there any truth to this and the fact that they said on TV that many people have been collecting them for nothing and they are worthless? If this is the case what do we all do with them now? Throw them all out?


Hi, This was the subject of a recent thread on the Ty Cyberboard - Daily tymes.
Many beanies start off at a high price or go up in value only to deflate drastically later. M.C. Beanie and Addison are two examples. However, while many lose value there are still prized beanies that go up as well. Look at the Billionaire Bears and New York Issy and Coral Casino, all out of reach for most budgets. Then there are beanies like Ronald McDonald who started around $60.00 to $75.00 selling for $350.00 now at

Ty Bay Stars Bruth, Suntory Sungoliath and Super Shuto are Teenie Beanie boppers going up, White Starlight, Harrod's Bonnet, New York Toy Fair Pinky Poo, red tag Delights and Great Big Hugz Punkie are going up in value.

Many Beanies are less value. Many are holding their value. How about dark blue Peanut?

The best you can do is watch for those few that might become rare and buy early. Promise started off at the two for $100.00 and within less than a day the two Promise bears were being sold for $100.00 each. Buying early can also cause you to have spent more when a price goes down. It's a gamble.

The consensus on the board was, collect them because you enjoy collecting beanies. If you collect, you will not be able to part with any of your beanies and you will have to collect them all. You will probably not get back what you paid for most. This is an unfortunate fact.

Thank You,


8-28-2005 SUNDAY

Reliable Cyberboard member Reuben50 has posted:

Prunella is a HALLMARK GOLD CROWN Exclusive!
Prunella the witch bear will be available for ordering in August, but will not be shipped until September

It is a pumpkin-colored teddy bear holding a witch's broom and has on a purple witch's hat. There is a small black spider on Prunella's witch hat. This may be just a prototype that Ty is working on, but I just saw this picture through a retailer's sheet that looks like it will be a pre-sell.

Anymore news I find on this, I will report back. This confirms that Halloween releases will be out next month.

Style #47016

If you could use a spell or two
Prunella is the witch for you
Just ask the spider on her hat
It used to be a kitty cat!

The Beanwatcher has posted the following letter regarding the Exclusive Beanie Baby Promise.

July 28, 2005

Dear Beanie Baby Collector:

In celebration of our company’s 125th Annual Meeting of the Association of Network Representatives, we collaborated with Ty Corporation to create a commemorative Northwestern Mutual Beanie Baby. In turn, the Beanie Baby named Promise was born, featuring a poem that speaks to our company’s values.

Our intention in creating this Beanie Baby was to offer employees of the company and network representatives (licensed agents of our company) an exclusive item to help commemorate this special anniversary. We appreciate your interest and enthusiasm for this Beanie Baby, unfortunately, it is not intended for distribution to the general public.

We hope you do not find the exclusivity of this item unreasonable. Since it commemorates such a historic year, we must ensure that our employees and network representatives have an ample supply and time to obtain this item.

Thank you for your time and understanding.

Ms. Janie shared the following observations from Beverly (aka indyba):

There are 2 Promise bears on the Ty current beanies list. One says exclusive to NWM and one only says the name, Promise. I do expect TYME will tell that there will be one available to the public like with Opie. Hope so! That keeps more people happy!

Ms. Janie wrote that "Ty sure has mixed it up this time! New faces and sewn on mouths are being introduced into the Beanie Line."

Ms. Janie has also shared photos of some wonderful collectors who recently met for Beanie Friends Worldwide. Checkout to "meet" some of the great people many Beanie Baby Collectors have already met online through their work!

California Poppy the State Flower bear was silently added to the Current Beanie list today!

Reuben50 has once again shared a wealth of information with Ty Cyberboard readers:

Introducing the August 2005 releases...

I have seen pictures of all of them, but do not have names for very many of them. This is not a rumor, this is 100% fact.

(1) A scraggly brown dog with a red bow; dark chocolate ears and paw pads
(2) White-and-cream colored Lhasa Apso
(3) A dark brown bear like Shortstop but holding a soccer ball
(4) A ballerina bear
(5) A new tiger in old dark Stripes' colors.
(6) A scraggly gray dog holding a heart that says "Sweetie Pie." I imagine that could be its name.He appears to be a gray Poodle. Half of its face is white and the other half is covered by the gray scraggly fur.
(7) A bear for the U.S. Open with a white body, red arms and blue ears with white stars on them.
(8) Juggles - clown bear, not jester bear as previously thought. Red shoes, yellow overalls with blue polka dots, funny looking hat. Juggles is a big, fat clown... like the We Do pair.
(9) Golden-colored bear with a shamrock on its chest and a green bow.

Taffeta the cat
-No reports of Chiffon

-Baby pink curly bear
-Baby blue curly dog
-Baby yellow curly cat

Reuben50 has informed Ty Cyberboard members of the following news!

Tux (Beanie Babies)

Las Vegas, Patrick Star (Beanie Babies); Bonsai, Carnation (Beanie Buddies); Pinky Poo - Beanie version (Pinkys); Catnap, Corkscrew, Dangles, Purrz, Slumbers, Tubby, Whiffer (Pluffies); Calhoun, Foofie (Ty Classics).

7-17-2005 SUNDAY

Tux is no longer available on order sheets and it has sold out according to Ty Cyberboard's Reuben50. Reuben50 predicted that Tux would not last too long when it was first introduced citing its similarity in name and look to a Linux Operating System Company toy.

Beanies 4 You has likely inadvertently predicted a new set of 10 Beanies. On the Beanies 4 You web site, Alphabet Beanie pictures spell out the web site name. The letter H is altered to appear as the number 4!

The Beanie News predicts that there will be a set of Beanies named:

0 -1- 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 and 9 !

All of the Alphabet Beanie Babies are Upper Case letters. Perhaps a set of lower case Alphabet Beanies are in the future? You heard it here first!

(Don't expect to see any credit for any ideas from the Official Ty site! Read the small print before posting ideas there!)

Pennsylvania Mountain Laurel has been silently introduced as a current Beanie Baby bear !


Can you tell me how to acquire an up to date Mary Beth's Beanie Babie catalog. I have some retired Beanie Babies and I don't know their value. THANKS!


Mary Beth's Catalog was discontinued and then she was responsible for Mary Beth's Ty beanies and more sold on the Ty site. Mary Beth later dissaccociated from the Ty publication which then became Ty beanies and more and also was discontinued after several months, and I am not aware of a new publication.

You can find values on web sites that sell or trade beanies. You can find links to some of the most recent widely used sites at

I hope this helps. I will let you know if I learn more.

Happy 4th Of July - Independence Day!!!

The 4 different beanies that were given away one per guest were American Blessing, Free (Black Breasted), Benjamin, John and Thomas.

There were reports of dissappointed collectors who had travelled a long distance to Ty Warner Park in Westmont, Illinois only to receive non-distinctive Beanie Babies with no special tag that could beboughtatany Ty dealer store.

According to rumors a Visa Bear might be on the way !?

7-3-2005 SUNDAY

There will be 4 different Beanie Babies given away at Ty Warner Park on the 4th of July!! Beanwatcher has the scoop!!!

7-2-2005 SATURDAY

The Fifth I Love Canada Special Olympics Bear wearing a black shirt is a part of the set of 4 Canadian Special Olympic Beanies. The five colors are Black, Yellow, Red, Gold and Orange. There is also a sixth color!

There are also several thousand I Love Canada Canadian Special Olympics Beanies in White shirts that have been signed by celebrities. The sets and the autographed Canadian Special Olympics Bears can be purchased in auctions at . Some of the black shirted ones may also be signed. Cindysbeans has the black shirted I Love Canada Beanie available too (unsigned). The black shirt Special Olympics beanie has not shipped yet. A Ty connection is expected to be announced on the Ty website!

The Alphabet Beanie Sets of 26 started off selling online for $65.00 to $69.50 plus a $12.00 shipping surcharge in one case. The individual beanies sold all for the same prices on each site ranging from $2.45 each to $3.99 early yesterday.

Later in the day various web sites raised the prices of the individual beanies! Some were as high as $4.99 each! The full set has been spotted being sold now from $69.99 to $129.99.

Beanwatcher has reported that The Beanie Hut has informed that the letters F, Q, U, X, and Y are short in the number of them being shipped. The parameters set for dealers to order this possibly one time shipment which is being sent all at once can be costly for the buyers. People buy various letters to spell out things like their children's names. For an example, our WWW neighbors Beaniehut and Beanies4You have both done this in their web sites! The Beanie Hut has added to their site a picture of Alphabet Beanies spelling out their name B-E-A-N-I-E H-U-T! has also used images of the Alphabet Beanies in similar ways.

According to Reuben50's report in the Daily Tymes, there will be only 3 keychains, Ratzo, Pinky Poo and Dazzler. Reuben50 has also noted that there are two new bear Classics not mentioned before and Radience is holding a flower. Weaver is a Chimpanzee, not a Monkey!

Yellowhippo, also on The Daily Tymes has reported that all of the Alphabet Beanies are brown with about 6 different letter colors. The new beanies are neon like crazy looking colors similar to the last batch of Ty Pillow Pals. Radience Pinky is the same pink shade as Delights.

Yellowhippo has also reported that Angeline will be available. Angeline dolls, minature books, gift bags with tissue that have Angeline all over, and Angeline dolls in a gift set box are being ordered now by dealers. The Beanwatcher has noted that there will likely be a flower bear introduced one for each State flower where a Tradeshow is held and has created a list of possible Beanies based on State flowers!

Blue Bonnet the Beanie baby, coming soon represents Texas' state flower. Blue Bonnet is a light brown bear with a bluebonnet stitched on it's chest!

Oriel the Angel Fish is blue and yellow striped.

Books carries a backpack and has "Back To School" on it's chest!

According to a Beanwatcher reader who is also a Ty Europe LTD retailer in Germany, there are big problems with Ty. They have not received any orders in three months. There have been rumours are that Ty is bankrupt but Ty Europe Ltd has not informed them if orders will be filled or if they will get nothing. Their representative who was on holiday had his termination notice from Ty Europe in his post and when he returned. "It is hard, our customers are very angry why we don´t receive our orders.... "

Beanwatcher expects that new beanies will start appearing next month.

A number of Beanies have retired today!

The pin says Special Olympics - Jeux Olympiques Speciaux.

A Rumor started on the Ty Cybertalk Website announced the upcoming end of Beanie Buddies! Take it or leave it alone. Like they say in the realm of Beanie Babies, Tyme will tell!

Ty Europe went into Receivership then into Administration, the UK equivalent to US Bankruptcy. It was believed that Ty US would purchase Ty Europe. This is all very similar to the Ty Canada closing a while back.

Ty Europe is now Up for Sale! Beanwatcher has posted a letter that states that all prior orders paid now to Ty Europe, Ltd. will be filled.

Dearly and Mom !!

Did you order your Opie before the Sea Center opened?
If you did and if you bought from one particular popular web site, don't
expect to get the Sea Center Opening Day Brown eyed Opie!
It is conveniently (at the expense of the buyer and for the benefit of the
seller) being replaced with the retail version introduced much later.
Shame on you deceptive dealers!!!

Delights , a Tystore Exclusive that is a Pinkys was delivered to some collectors with Beanie Baby Tags.

Ty Talk Cyberboard Comments:

"I just viewed a picture of an in hand Delights in Ms. Janie's newsletter, and noticed that its hangtag was not a Pinkys hangtag. It had the red beanie babies hangtag. I wonder what is up with that??" (8885083)

"Although he is (pale) pink, he doesn't have a Pinkys' tag. So I wonder why he is listed under the Pinkys category and not the current "beanie" list, then?"(prescient)

"That is strange. Perhaps the reason is that it might be a Tystore Tag without a barcode. Pinkys are Beanies, well, at least the smaller ones are." (1geraldine)

"I am also wondering what this is all about; I thought Delights was a Pinky, not a Beanie, but the hang tag is a regular Beanie tag, NOT a Pinky's tag. Is this an error, or what??" (LIbeaniemom)

According to the Beanwatcher, readers have reported a delay in receiving their Delights Beanie. Speculation is that the Tystore Red Beanie Baby Tags are being changed to Pinkys Tags. Tyme will tell!!!

Another Ty Cyberboard member, CHGO RICAN BOI made another Pinkys Delights observation on May 19th, that Delights doesnt have the Pinkies ribbon !

"Pinkies have the silver dotted SILK pink ribbon around their necks, and Delights doesnt. Not a ribbon, hang tag, tush tag, or HOT pink color (its more a Pale Pink). I think this bear wasn't supposed to be a Pinky at all and US true Ty Collectors know that. I am dissapointed with this one Ty. Why list it as a Pinky and get me excited to own a Ty Store Pinky, when it's really not (in my opinion). ..."

Canadian Beanies by law always had a second Tush Tag. The Canadian version of the Holy Father Beanie however has the tag on it's ear! This Beanie also has a gold heart Ty Tag.

A reader of Ms. Janie's has reported that a new U.K. trio due out in June, which are:

Lion - England
Dragon - Wales
Serpent - Scotland

The introduction of Holy Father the bear has been very controversial. So controversial in fact that the Ty Talk Cyberboard does not seem to be posting all of the comments.

Holy Father the bear is the first Beanie specific to a certain religion, Christianity. There have been other beanies such as Halo I and II, Hope the praying bear and a praying bunny as well. There was an Angel Beanie Bopper too.

Religion and Politics are two very touchy subjects best avoided in mixed groups. People believe strongly in their own beliefs and conclusions. For every Lefty Beanie, there is a Righty Beanie resulting in a balanced view. The only problem with the Holy Father bear which is beautiful and for a good reason being to honor the memory of the late Pope is that there are other religions in this world and Ty may be seen as leaning toward one belief excluding all others. There are not only other religions but there are non-believers of any religion as well known as Atheists.

The Beanies have incorporated several brands of late including Mastercard, Learning Express, McDonalds, Cracker Barrel, Garfield, Sponge Bob and Hallmark. Now going into religion, the door opens to a variety of faiths or lack of to also desire to have a beanie to represent their honored leaders who have passed on. Beanie Baby Collectors who are from all over the world come from a wide variety of experiences and beliefs. Holy Father the bear is a great addition, a beautiful bear introduced with the best in mind. The Beanie Baby themes should however be more Universal and less controversial.

Opie availability Update!
The Beaniehut has raised the price of Opie now to $14.99 and Cindysbeans is no longer offering it for sale. The Opie Beanie will be sold in person and online starting April 23rd at The Ty Sea Center!!

4-20-2005 WEDNESDAY

Some have reported having received Serenade while most have been waiting for any news at all. Serenade it seems is shipping out to all of the patiently awaiting BBOM - Beanie Baby of the Month subscribers now.

Opie will be available Online at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History web site as well as at the Sea Center but will not be sold over the phone. Opie will cost $5.95 + tax + shipping (only UPS) on the official web site. You can also buy Opie in presales on several websites!

One site, Beaniehut is selling Opie for $7.99 and another site, Cindysbeans is selling Opie for $7.95

These sites will add shipping charges as well.

Uh Oh!!! A Ty Cyberboard member wrote that there would of course be many Opie's produced because it is a fund raising beanie for the Ty Sea Center. There has been a development however that is being reported by Ms Janie. Only ONE Opie Beanie will be sold per customer!!!

The Beanwatcher reports that a new Beanie, Holy Father the Bear will be coming to retailers soon. This new bear is in honor of the late Pope John Paul II!

Holy Father is a white new face bear with a golden dove in flight holding an olive branch in its beak. The Ty hang tag is gold as well.

Last week, an observant Ty Talk Cyberboard participant pointed out that the Clubby and Snips Beanies had been silently retired. Also, the most recent Ty answer in "Ask Ty" says to "think pink" for the next Tystore exclusive.

Ty plastic display boxes have returned to the Tystore!

Beanwatcher reports this morning that Angeline photos can be found a Shaskana's Beanies Click Here!

The doll Angeline is pictured in a display holding a cat. There are also assorted Angeline cards with various messages and a book written in German.

I Love Hawaii bear was reported not to be an oddity if there is a misspelling of Capital incorrectly spelled C-a-p-i-t-o-l. Many of the I Love beanies are said to have the same error. Capitol is the name of a building in Washington D.C. and Capital is used for the Capital City of a State.

Jester Hat on or Jester Hat off of April Fool the new Beanie exclusive in the
Tystore Jokester!! has been shown originally in the Tystore without a hat then later, with a hat. Is this a variation or will Jokester come both ways? It is an expensive joke for sure because one does not know if you have to reorder to get one with the hat or not...

There will be only one Jokester with the hat. (TY) kindly cancelled my duplicate order. If you reordered as well and would like to cancel one of your orders, send the order numbers with your request. I'll be dissappointed for having cancelled if Jokester turns out to be a rare one though!

The Pinkys link to 22 Pinkys Beanies has reportedly changed and now links to only 16 Pinkys Beanies. Sources say that the five missing Beanies are the same five that have only been found in Europe and who were not part of the official introduction on the Ty web site. A sixth missing Beanie is the unannounced Chiffon.

What to do in the event of purchasing Beanies Online and not receiving your purchase.

For starters, research before you buy:

1. Is the web site or auction seller well known or reputable?
2. Subscribe to Beanie Newsletters.
3. Note the age of the website and if the information is current.
4. In auctions note the amount of time that a seller has been a member.
5. Also note the amount of positive as well as negative feedbacks received.
6. There are sites that report known bad traders.

Make your payment using Paypal or a Credit Card.
Paypal and Ebay provide assistance within specific standards of time and how the item was paid for.

1. Communicate with the seller.
2. Write to the seller to try to settle any claims.
3. Calling, writing e-mail or postal mail are ways to contact the seller.

If nothing is solved:
1. Notify your credit card company, paypal or auction provider to find a solution or get a refund.
2. Note the time period in which action must be taken for whatever payment source that you use.

Sometimes life is just not fair and you don't get the item or your money back, so be cautious from the start.

I would like to think that Ty would update us with a resolution in this matter, but as they say, tyme will tell!

Ms. Janie has also reported receiving the following from Peggy at

Dear Ms. Janie

It appears that the mediators on the Ty cyberboard are being very selective who and what they are allowing to post on the Ty Cyberboard.

I want to reassure ebay and the wonderful Beanie Baby collectors that the Peggy Gallagher authenticated Ty Beanie Baby Prototypes and authenticated Ty Beanie Babies are authentic. The Prototypes are precious and extremely rare. The are worth whatever a secondary market person is willing to pay. Some of the rare Prototypes have been sold for thousands of dollars! THEY ARE WORTH EVERY DOLLAR! They are rare and a one of a kind design!

If anyone needs any clarification or are confused please do not hesitate in emailing me at

Ms. Janie also reported receiving the following by e-mail from Phyllis / Queenies-Beanies who Janie clarified "This is NOT Sue Grosso known to my readers as QueenieBeanie*".

Hi, Ms. Janie, Here's an auction I just posted on ebay with comments concerning Ty Prototypes.

Thank you, Phyllis Miceli Queenies-Beanies

All weekend long we have been trying to get the word out through the Ty Talk site that there are serious discrepancies in the posting, but none of our comments get posted, including those of Peggy Gallagher and Grandma Pat, or anyone else that is saying anything positive about this whole situation. This is the official comment from Peggy Gallagher:It appears that the mediators on the Ty Cyberboard are being very selective who and what they are allowing to post on the Ty Cyberboard.

If anyone needs any clarification or are confused please do not hesitate in emailing me at I also am very alarmed that whoever the employee is that wrote the comment, on the Daily Tymes Page, after business hours (5:20PM) on a Friday evening is very suspicious. Asking people not to bid on an auction is an insult to the dedicated and devoted collectors. Ty Inc. can cancel auctions at any time! The Prototypes authenticated by Peggy Gallagher are AUTHENTIC!"

Respectfully, Peggy Gallagher This is the official comment from Grandpa Pat from the Traders List: "Concerning the posting from Ty..please don't jump to conclusions about anyone..including the poster, himself." And this is the official comment from Queenies-Beanies: "When I heard about all the hoopla over Ty Prototypes, I cancelled my auctions temporarily until we can find out what's going on over at Ty, Inc. Please rest assured that these are not stolen from Ty. These are given to Ty employees over tyme. When someone gives a gift, the recipient can do with it as they wish. Many Ty Prototypes have been bought and sold over the years. So why all the hoopla now?

I sincerely doubt that Ty wrote this. This matter will be cleared up shortly.

Tyme will tell!"
