December 2008


According to Ms. Janie's Newsletter report on 12/19/2008:

Steve Wrote...

Hello Ms. Janie,

Hope the holiday season finds you spoiling that wonderful grandchild and Santa will be here soon to lend a hand....

I am writing today to let you know that the Chamber of Commerce version of Phil is now available for order.

According to the gentleman I placed my order with, Phil was officially released on Monday 12/15 for purchase at the Chamber office and has a birthdate of February 2. His poem reads as follows: "predicting the weather's my career. I do my job one day a year. My shadow will declare my fate. Will winter go, or spring be late?! "

The gentleman also informed me that Ty is not releasing any other version of Phils this year and this is the one and only way to get him. Ty and the Chamber moved up the release of this beanie due to the economy and thought that most collectors wouldn’t be able to budget for beanie purchases after the holidays, and neither wanted the die hard fans to miss out, so they felt a holiday season release would be best. Guess they haven’t figured out that us beanie nuts always have a dollar or two for a special new friend...lol.

Phil cost $6 each plus 6% tax in PA and appropriate shipping charges. I ordered 4 today and my total came to just under $35.

www.groundhogstuff.com

Holiday wishes to you and yours ! !
Merry Christmas everyone ! !
Steve - BFWW

Happy Birthday A!

I finally got around to updating and found the note below on the Beanwatcher's Site. It really says it all. Much of the enthusiasm has gone out of the Ty Beanie Line like air out of a popped ballon. However, like the Classic toys of olde, Lincoln Logs, Barbie, Hess, Pez and more,Beanies are forever. There will always be the seasoned as well as new collectors of hand held Ty Beanies and Ty products. They will keep a nostalgic presence for many many years to come...

An Important Note From The Beanwatcher :

Happy Trails to You...
USA

July 6, 2008

After much thought, I have decided to suspend further updates to the Bean Watcher site.

At the beginning of the year, I had great hopes for Ty's new line of plush toys. But instead of generating more excitement, it is apparent that interest in beanies has waned. Collecting Ty beanies, for this long-time collector, simply is not the same. The fun, excitement, and magic of years gone by are just fond memories.

I won't call this announcement a "retirement" since it sounds so final. And I won't say "good-bye" since Ty, Inc. may become "collector - friendly" once again. Who knows, I may decide to re-appear in the months ahead. There are interesting new styles waiting to be introduced and I may want to share the news when the time is right.

So for now, I'll just say, "See you later..." The first few lines of a popular song by the late Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, "Happy Trails," appropriately express my sentiments:

Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you, 'till we meet again.

Thank you for the times we shared together. I hope that you'll always find the beanies you want, now and in the future.

Happy Collecting!

Bean Watcher

Ty July Beanies were introduced today!

John the Phoenix the co Manager at BeanieUK sent the following message and link to Ms. Janie !

"A quick note - I've updated the article underneath, to include photos of the NESS-e Classic, which is available from tomorrow. The Loch Ness Exclusive Classic has a style number # 56009, and the retail version is style # 56010 "

Welcome NESS-e!

A Cyberboard note found by Ms. Janie noted changes on the Beanies 2.0 Interactive section of the Ty web site:

The General Store is now open! You can trade all of the items in your back pack (now called the Bean Bag) and receive beans in exchange. These beans can then be used to purchase different food items.

Also, gardens have been added to the Beanie homes. You can use the beans in your bag to plant them and use the watering can to grow them. And yes, this is the mysterious watering can that people didn't know what to do with.

the Sloth~

Lastly, Karen Britt asked Ms. Janie to share the following information

Sneak Preview

I am excited to be able to offer some Sports Commemorative Beanies for sale to collectors. These play an important role in the history of Ty. Please email me if you would like a list and the prices I am able to sell them for, which does not reflect their true value, as I am able to offer most for lower.

I have added photos of my collection to my Displays page:
http://www.karenbrit.com/DisplaysSports.html

I have also listed various checklists on my website so you can view them either by beanie, sport, team, game date, etc
http://www.karenbrit.com/SportsPromosPage.html

In preparation of listing on ebay, I have created an About Me (ME) page, but thought I would check if anyone has an interest in them before I do so.

http://members.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewUserPage&userid=karenbrit

Collecting the Sports Commemorative beanies has been fun, and the hunt is still on for me until I get the last 6 I’m missing.

They will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Some I have multiples of and some only 1 extra. All come with their authentic Commemorative Card, and the majority with the ticket stub from the game, and some with pins. I also have a few Official Publications from the teams.

I thought I would let those I know about these first, before putting them on ebay.

Love: Karen

6-23-2008 MONDAY


From AbbeyBears Padstow
Date 2008/06/23 Mon
Subject Ness-e CLASSIC........

Hi All

ok, I am able to order the Ness-e Classic from tomorrow and am told I will have him instore by Monday coming, ( 30th June ) so he will be ready to mail out from then.

The Classic is £9.99 British Pounds ( around US$20 ) , this is the regular cost of Classics in the UK.

The shipping as usual will depend on weight alone so I would imagine that 1 classic would be around £2.50 British Pounds to mail out of the UK but will go down slightly for each extra one on top of that ( due to the weight charges ) eg 1 Classic would be around £2.50British Pounds, but 2 may only work out at £4.00 British Pounds ( not £5 British POunds ) I will be able to give an EXACT shipping cost as soon as they arrive and I can take one to the post office to get him weighed.

If you would like to order the Ness-e Classic, please just email and let me know how many you would like and I will be sending out invoices from Friday onwards.

I also have around 8 Ness-e keyclips left and a few beanies so if you need anymore of these please let me know.

Many thanks to one and all
Take good care
from Jen

Karen Brit / Karen Holmes posted a "Sneak Preview - Sports Commemoratives" newsletter!

Hi All

I am excited to be able to offer some Sports Commemorative Beanies for sale to collectors. These play an important role in the history of Ty. Please email me if you would like a list and the prices I am able to sell them for, which does not reflect their true value, as I am able to offer most for lower.

I have added photos of my collection to my Displays page:

http://www.karenbrit.com/DisplaysSports.html

I have also listed various checklists on my website so you can view them either by beanie, sport, team, game date, etc

http://www.karenbrit.com/SportsPromosPage.html

In preparation of listing on ebay, I have created an About Me (ME) page, but thought I would check if anyone has an interest in them before I do so.

http://members.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewUserPage&userid=karenbrit

Collecting the Sports Commemorative beanies has been fun, and the hunt is still on for me until I get the last 6 I’m missing.

They will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Some I have multiples of and some only 1 extra. All come with their authentic Commemorative Card, and the majority with the ticket stub from the game, and some with pins. I also have a few Official Publications from the teams.

I thought I would let those I know about these first, before putting them on ebay.

Love: Karen

A Note To Ms. Janie:

April 16, 2008

Hi Ms. Janie
As many collectors are discovering, there are exciting products to be found at the moment, as some collectors are having/choosing to part with their collections. My friend Suz has spent a small fortune on vet bills for her aging Basset Hound Gina, and decided to part with her Chef Robuchon beanie.

So few people have this in their collections, I wanted to notify your members that it is on ebay and has been authenticated by Becky Estenssoro of True Blue Beans, and Suz is an extremely reliable and honest person.

Love: Karen

The following report is of special interest re PVC Pellets used in Beanie Babies and is therefore posted in full.

Toxic Toys
This is a News 11 Special Report by Brad Harvey.

You can be the most careful parent -- pouring over recall lists and consumer reports magazines before buying any toys for your kids. Even at that, there may be a danger you know nothing about, as News 11's Brad Harvey reports.

We're talking about PVCs, which many call "plastic poison." The reason you've heard little about them is that toys made with them are not the subject of any kind of recall.

But some other products made with them have been recalled, and that's where the debate begins. We've been there as scores of children have offered a tentative finger for the prick of a blood test to show if they've been exposed to lead. Toys from China, lead paint on window sills -- the last thing parents need is to be worried about additional common household items that may be toxic.

Especially more toys.

But the latest warning couldn't be more common. They're toys made with PVC's -- polyvinyl chlorides. It's a type of plastic, and the concern about it originated from the heart of the medical community itself.

"The debate really ramped up when there was a study in 2003 that showed that plasticizers in IV tubing and other medical tubing in neonatal ICU units were causing problems with the development of newborn babies," says Dr. Tara Robinson, a family practice physician.

Robinson is no alarmist, but she has been watching closely as each new study is done. The problem isn't so much with the PVCs themselves but with the compounds manufacturers often mix in to make the plastic soft.

"These thiolates are compounds that are in conjunction with the PVCs chemically but are not chemically bonded to the PVCs, so they can leach out over time and that's what was found in the medical tubing studies -- that these compounds leached out over time," Robinson explains.

The list of toys made with this soft form of plastic is astonishingly long -- everything from action figures to rubber duckies.

The really scary thing about this is that, with babies, absolutely everything goes into their mouths. Astonishingly, teethers make the list most often.

There's little doubt that the softening agent by itself in large amounts is harmful, but how much of it leaches out of the toy and into the child's mouth is the question. Several organizations cite studies claiming the amount is significant and could be hazardous to kids.

Greenpeace has fought court battles over the issue for years. But the plastics industry has angrily denied any danger, pointing to their own studies. So what's a parent to do?

"I haven't really made any recommendations to my patients. But I know a lot of folks try to steer their children away from those plastic toys, instead giving them cloth or wooden toys to chew on so that they don't get exposed to those agents," Robinson says.

You can tell some, but not all of the toys containing the PVC plasticizer by the recycling number -- just look for the number three.

Just last week, lawmakers in the State of Washington passed a bill banning PVCs in toys. Late last year, California became the first state to do so. On the Web: http://childdaycareissues.blogspot.com/2007/12/latest-toxic-toys-list.html

Ms. Janie has received the following news from Karen Brit!

"I am so excited to announce that I have new Update Pages for the Ty Beanies Tracker Third Edition Book... I have tried to cover everything in the Complete Update Pages, not just the new releases, but all the other activity to bring the Third Edition book up-to-date through February 28th, 2008"

On another note...

"The Baby Ty and Beanie Buddies appear to be making their move to the Pluffies and Classic Collections, but I don't record things until proven, so can't just list the current Baby Ty's as Pluffies, or Buddies as Classics, until they have been seen in person with those hang tags, and preferably photographed. Also if anything has changed on the tush tag or product, it is worth noting. "

This news if true might make any lists appear to be confusing in the future.

Damage Estimated at $5 Million to Montecito Estate




Toy manufacturer and businessman Ty Warner’s 18,000 square foot home caught fire early Thursday morning, causing an estimated $5 million in damages. Firefighters from the Santa Barbara city and county fire departments, Carpinteria-Summerland Fire District and the Montecito Fire Protection District responded, taking roughly three hours to contain the fire at 1001 Fairway Rd., which was first reported at 1 a.m. Thursday.

The fire was reported by security at the residence and was contained to just two rooms. Seven engines one truck company, one urban search and rescue vehicle, one rescue vehicle, one ambulance and several command vehicles responded, bringing more than 35 firefighters to the scene. Sprinklers also had been activated in the home as well. The cause of the fire was an overheated fireplace chase (the casing around the chimney) according to a press release from Montecito Fire Protection District spokesperson Geri Ventura.

The fire happened in the main house, which is currently being built. In a statement Friday, a spokesman for Warner’s company downplayed the severity of the fire. “There was a relatively small fire contained within the construction site of Ty Warner’s residence,” said Greg Rice, executive vice president of Ty Warner Hotels & Resorts. “We are currently in the process of assessing the damage and the cause. Our sincere appreciation goes out to our local fire agencies for their quick and efficient response.”

I found this note in my junk mail. Luckily I reviewd the folder before deleting. This site, Collectibles Top 25 has been very well known in the Beanie World. It is being auctioned for a minimum starting bid of $1,000.

Hello everyone,

This email is to let everyone know that Collectibles Top 25 is up for sale. It is on eBay for a very reasonable figure to hopefully to get the site a new home with someone who is more enthusiatic about collectibles than I am.

Thank you for bearing with me over the years, hopefully I've managed to provide a good service most of the time but I would like to apologise for how much I've neglected Top 25 over the last few years. The sale will hopefully rectify that for you.

I wish you all the best of luck for the future!

Ms. Janie would appreciate your assistance. She noted, "On February 7, 2008 I shared a link into the FTD website for a Valentines Day special featuring a floral arrangement with Ty's monkey, BLISS. I need a copy of the photo which was displayed on the FTD website that showcased the monkey “Bliss” and the floral arrangement for Valentines Day. "

"While viewing the FTD website I came across an arrangement, which displayed Bliss the monkey along with flowers for Valentines Day. I called and placed my order and questioned the salesperson about Bliss. I asked if this would be the exact piece that would be accompanying the arrangement. I was told YES, unless it sold out, and then it would be replaced with another Ty product."

Keep in mind that the description from the FTD website clearly stated (cute plush Valentine monkey)."

"I received a call that the flowers had arrived, and I questioned the individual about the Ty plush monkey (Bliss). I was told NO plush product arrived with the flowers."

"I called FTD and was told by the representative that my selection had sold out. She transferred me to a supervisor, who proceeded to get VERY rude and explain that they had never offered Ty products with their floral arrangements. He also stated that he did not know of Ty and that unless I could prove to him that this arrangement existed, along with the monkey, he could not help me. "

"Needless to say, I was VERY upset. I called a couple of my newsletter subscribers and inquired if they had clicked on the link which I provided to view the photo. Both readers had viewed what I shared as in the description and one of them ordered the arrangement thinking that the hangtag may be different. She did not receive her Bliss the monkey as well."

"On February 15, 2008 I called FTD again trying to resolve this issue. Once again, I was told that there was NO arrangement with a Ty monkey, and in fact, they had no monkey’s that accompanied their floral arrangement. They ask that I fax or e-mail them a photo of the arrangement along with Bliss."

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!
"I ask that if you viewed the link which I shared, that displayed the floral arrangement, along with Bliss the monkey, please contact me at msjanie@comcast.net. If you saved a photo copy of the arrangement along with Bliss the monkey, I would appreciate you sharing it as well.
Please send it in JPEG format to msjanie@comcast.net "

"If you need contact information to resolve your dispute with FTD, I will provide it. Please contact me at msjanie@comcast.net"

Hi Ms Janie,

I don't know if this is of interest to you - I got this Collectors Card for the BB 2.0s and card advertisement from my retailer today ( they arrived with an order yesterday).

I notice that the Collectors Card appears to have an error - it says "collecters". I haven't heard anything much about advertising in the States or elsewhere in the world, so don't know if this is generally available, or if there is a corrected version.

Hi Ms. Janie

Unfortunately the following birth dates are/were listed incorrectly on Ty's Beanie Birthday Calendar. I have written to Ty to ask that they be corrected, but thought I had better let collectors know to correct their books/update pages. I double-check the beanies hang tags when they arrive in, but had 2 folders and used the one when first announced, not the latest re-checked one.

BIRTHDATES should be:
In Third Edition Book:

M.C. Beanie VI - 9/14/2006 (not 8/14/2006)

Hi Ms. Janie
I am still waiting to get the Beanie Babies 2.0's in, but undoubtedly those that think the beanies are cute, are disappointed that they have to remove the hang tag completely to be able to see inside for the poem, birthday and the code to go online.

Can you post this, please, as we know Ty reads your web site? Ty, please can you attach the hang tag as you have in the past, and then add an additional tag (possibly sealed in a plastic envelope), so that only the tag with the code need be removed? Also, from photos I have seen, the tags sometimes distract from the beanie. I'd love the tags attached so are at the back of the ear instead of the front. Thanks.
Love: Karen

The red shoes of Jammin' Jenna, the popular Ty Inc. doll, exceeded Illinois lead limits. (Tribune photo by Heather Stone / October 9, 2007)

By Sam Roe | Tribune reporter
January 23, 2008

Facing increasing pressure from authorities, a major toymaker has removed lead-tainted dolls from store shelves across the state, the Illinois attorney general's office said Tuesday.

Ty Inc. said it has replaced its popular Jammin' Jenna dolls with a redesigned version, the state said. Now, the toy's shoes are made of cloth and not vinyl, the part of the product that showed high lead levels.

"While we are pleased with the results, it is unfortunate it took weeks to get them to take these steps," said Cara Smith, deputy chief of staff to Illinois Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan.

Ty officials could not be reached for comment Tuesday night.

The state and Ty, which is based in Westmont, had been at odds since last fall when testing by the Tribune found that the doll and a variety of other toys sold in the Chicago area contained high levels of lead, a metal that can cause learning delays in children.

A day later, the attorney general's office demanded that retailers and manufacturers cease sales of the tainted toys identified by the newspaper. Most companies complied, Smith said, but Ty agreed only to stop distributing new Jammin' Jennas to retailers. The company refused to pull those dolls still on shelves, Smith said.

Unsatisfied, the state began testing the dolls and considering legal action against the company. The dispute was detailed Tuesday in a Page 1 story in the Tribune.

On Tuesday afternoon, Smith said, a Ty lawyer called the attorney general's office and said that the company had pulled the dolls from shelves the first week in January. Smith said it was unclear why Ty waited until Tuesday to tell the state of this action.

In previous interviews, Ty representatives have said the company is not violating state law because federal rules supersede it. While the state bans vinyl toys that exceed 600 parts per million of lead, federal law does not.

But both the state attorney general's office and the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission have said that the Illinois ban is valid because states can adopt their own rules where no federal law exists.

Ty's action Tuesday appears to have averted a possible court fight and what would have been the first test of Illinois' strict lead laws.

Toymaker fights state recall

Ty Inc. refuses Illinois' request to pull lead-tainted doll from stores. In what could trigger the first test of Illinois' strict law against lead in toys, a major toymaker is refusing to pull a popular, but tainted, doll from store shelves across the state.

Illinois authorities thought they had reached an amicable agreement late last year with Ty Inc. to have the company voluntarily remove its Jammin' Jenna dolls from retailers because the toys contained high amounts of lead.

But a few days later, the state attorney general's point person on the issue was surprised to see Jammin' Jenna for sale in a candy store near her office. The next morning, the official spotted another one at a grocery store near her home.


Ms. Janie posted:

Ty Inc. has issued the following statement regarding this article

TY INC. PRODUCTS ARE 100% SAFE FOR CHILDREN

Ty Inc. has removed all Jammin’ Jenna dolls from the toy shelves in Illinois and replaced them with a redesigned version of the shoes that addresses any concern raised by the Illinois Attorney General. Ty took this action even though the Jammin’ Jenna dolls met all federal safety standards and posed absolutely no risk of harm to children.

The Jammin Jenna doll meets all safety standards promulgated by the Federal Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the doll, like all of Ty’s products, was tested for compliance with federal regulations before it was introduced on the market. In November, Ty again tested the toys, and the tests reconfirmed that the toys were safe and met all federal safety requirements. Even though it was not required to do so, Ty immediately ceased manufacturing this item and changed the material of the shoes. Ty voluntarily stopped distributing and selling the toys in Illinois, even though Ty does not believe this product is governed by Illinois state law.

Ty wishes to point out that it has always cooperated with the Illinois authorities on this matter. Consumers should rest assured that Ty has always been vigilant in ensuring that its toys are 100% safe for children.
