Facts on the Original 9 Beanie Babies


Original 9 Beanie Babies

The Original 9 Beanie Babies are Cubbie, Chocolate, Pinchers, Spot (without a spot), Squealer, Splash, Patti (Raspberry), Legs and Flash!


To understand about Beanie Babies BROWNIE, PUNCHERS, PATTI BEANIES, AND ORIGINAL 9 BEANIES, you have to go back in time to 1993 when it all began.  Here are questions that have come up over the years, together with their answers. Read the rest of this entry

Princess Ty Beanie Baby

Princess Beanie Baby

Princess is one of the most hotly debated Beanies that Ty has ever produced. This all stems from some enterprising individuals who attempted to change the facts to suit their needs. Many other sellers over the years have unknowingly followed suit.

In October of 1997 Ty Inc. announced that a Princess Beanie Baby was on the way. It was a charity Beanie with all profits going to the Princess Diana of Wales Memorial Foundation.

She first arrived in retail stores in mid December of 1997. The retail stores received 12 in this shipment and ALL were PVC tush tags that were made in China.

At the beginning of 1998 when the 5th generation swing tags were being introduced, the swing tag on several of the Beanie Babies had two spelling errors on them. On the front of the tag, inside the yellow heart, the word ORIGINAL was spelled “ORIGIINAL”, and on the back, where it says “Surface Wash” it was misspelled “Suface Wash”.


This mistake occurred on:

  • Ears
  • Valentino
  • Peace
  • Curly
  • Blackie
  • Hippity
  • Hoppity
  • Floppity
  • Squealer
  • Tuffy
  • Roary

When the mistake was discovered, Ty used stickers with the words “Surface Wash” printed on them to cover up the misspelling. At present, there is no difference in value between the correct versus incorrect tags, and the ones with or without stickers.

The Rarest Beanie Babies fall into 6 different groups.

Each group has its own rarest Beanies in it. Sometimes the rarest Beanie Babies are not the most expensive: popularity, appeal, and how intense a collector is as to whether they want the original version, or a later version of the Beanie Baby, can play a part in the price.
