3rd Generation Beanie Babies Tush Tags

The big change for 3rd Generation Beanie Babies Tush Tags were that they now included the name of the Beanie on the bottom of the tag under the heart. This helped collectors identify their Beanie even if it was missing the Hang Tag.

The new 3rd Generation Tush Tags also have the phrase: The Beanie Babies Collection™ at the very top of the tag.

Libearty The Bear Error Tush Tag

You’ll notice on the Libearty The Bear that some of the Tush Tags will have Beanie misspelled as “Beanine”.  You’ll also notice that the ™ is over the ‘Babies’ where on normal 3rd Generation Tush Tags the ™ is next to the word ‘Collection’.

Peggy Gallagher, a well known Beanie Baby authentication expert, theorizes that about half of the Libearty the Bear’s contain this misspelling on the 3rd Gen Tush Tag.  The value of the Libearty Bears with the error tag is not very much, roughly $10-20.

Beanie Babies With Wrong 3rd Gen Tush Tags

It might be difficult to see, but on this Goldie The Fish Beanie is the Tush Tag for Blackie the Bear. You will see this type of mistake on some Beanie Babies. Does it impact the value? Sure, some error tag Beanies can command a premium. The ones with error Tush Tags tend to sell for more as one could just attach their own Hang Tag to any Beanie Baby and theoretically call it an error.

Misspelled Surface is “Sufrace”

Some 3rd Generation Tush Tag Beanie Babies, specifically Blackie The Bear, will have the word “Surface” misspelled as “Sufrace” on the back of the TT. With Blackie, the error in spelling doesn’t impact the price very much, they sell for less than $20.

Hello, I have about 4 large totes full of mostly 4th gens hang tag beanie babies. I know most of them aren’t worth much or so I think. Here are the questions I have regarding them all:

1. PVC vs PE Pellets
2. Misspellings on 4th gen hang tag – original spelt oringiinal (valentino bear)
3. Style numbers included inside hang tags
4. Stars on tush tags – good / bad
5. Different fonts on the 4th gen hang tags
6. Samps on inside tush tag and whether this is rare or not

I have the Erin bear. Has red rush tag with “Erin” on it. (1997) Also has heart hang tag on ear. No misspelling. No fading. Has been in box never taken out. How much is it worth?

    Hello! Unfortunately Erin bears were made during the peak of Beanie Babies popularity and there are a ton of them out there. They typically sell between $1-$5 online.
