Interesting facts about Frankenteddy:
Mary Beth’s Beanies & More Magazine ran a Halloween poem competition “Be a Winner” and a Ty Collector called Vickie Russell won it. She was the first collector to have a poem in a hang tag that wasn’t from a Ty employee. Ty has run other contests since that date.
Frankenteddy was produced with 6 different variations of his foot colors. Before production though, Ty did a prototype of a Frankenteddy with both feet in black. This particular prototype Ty signed and auctioned it off on Ty.com to raise funds for UNICEF in October 2002. It raised $17,505. It is detailed in a September/October 2002 SPECIAL HALLOWEEN ISSUE!!! of Mary Beth’s Beanies & more magazine and a photograph of the prototype bear is on the front cover.
