But every cobra has to die,

And whack them till they’re stone cold dead!”

Find a book, look and see
I’m whatever you want me to be!”

There is no space between Ty and Inc

Who where and when are all these comments and questions answered? How much would a Millennium bear without the two in 2000 be worth?

First let me say I am glad this is here to assist New customers. I have the whole set of four McDonald’s international bears. The great blessing is each one the four bears in set have same exact error from box, to ear tag and rush tag. Each was made and introduced in 1998 and 1997, but on tush tag it is printed 1993. Since these bears share several rarities I can not see asking for less than $2500.00

I have a 1997 white Angel cat beanie. 3rd gen swing tag with surface spelled “suface”. It has 1st generation tush tag that says it’s made with “polyester fiber & PVC Pellets in cloth bag” Made in China.
I have not seen this error on this particular beanie before. Tags are near mint with slight rub off of the word retain on the back of swing tag. I’m looking to sell it. Any ideas on if it’s rare? Thank you!
