Beanie Babies

What - and where - are the "tags"?

TY Beanie Babies have two types of tags:

  1. Swing Tag - AKA Heart(s) Tag / Hang Tag / Ear Tag
  2. Tush Tag

The Swing tag is a piece of cardboard in the shape of a heart; the first generation (generations are explained later in the guide) tags were simply a double-sided piece of card, whilst the later generations were a folded piece of card with information written on all four sides.  On the front of all tags is the Ty logo - in white lettering - set on a red background and with a gold outline/border.  On the back of first generation tags you can find the Beanie's name; on later-generation tags, you can find the Beanie's name, date of birth, a 4-line poem, and various other information such as barcodes, Ty trademark/copyright data and safety/precaution notes.

Swing tags are usually attached to the Beanie's ear.  On animal Beanies - butterflies, worms, etc. - the tag is located in another appropriate place such as the wing, upper-half of the body, and so forth.

The Tush tag on the other hand is made from a small piece of material such as nylon, for example.  These are stitched onto the Beanie - usually on the bottom or under-side.

 

PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES - I WILL BE ADDING FURTHER INFO ABOUT ALL TAG-GENERATIONS AS WELL AS INCLUDING PHOTOGRAPHS FOR GUIDANCE.
