If you come across a hang tag that seems to be attached incorrectly, don’t worry, it is most likely a Beanie Babies 2.0 and meant to be that way.
In 2008 Ty released the Beanie Babies 2.0 Collection, a year following the release of the Ty Girlz Collection. Both these collections were designed to interact with Ty’s website. They came with codes in their hang tags to unlock games and activities.
Originally the hang tags were attached on the ‘open side’ so that they couldn’t be opened and the code revealed. On this style there was an additional tag announcing to Play Online.
Collectors were not happy that the hang tag attacher had to be cut to see the code, and eventually the code was put inside an additional tag instead of the hang tag.

Bo Beanie Babies 2.0’s hang tag and code changed several times. Read more about it in the Additional Information on Bo’s Beanie Facts page.
The online games portal of Ty’s website closed in 2013. If you buy a Beanie Babies 2.0 do not expect to be able to use the code any more.
All these Beanie babies were part of Ty’s Beanie Babies 2.0 Collection.
