We have a retired Mel Koala beanie bear with no star on the tush tag, and the name Scoop on it as well (the tush tag). On the heart tag, however, the name “Mel” is still listed. It’s a 1996 edition beanie with PVC pellets and we are trying to find the value of this bear. There is no # listed on the inside of the tush tag….and actually, I’d be surprised if it did since it’s a “Scoop” tag. Any information on the value of this RARE beanie bear would be greatly appreciated.

    Lilz The Ty Collector - 22 February, 2017

    No, it’s probably because the bears of that type were first produced in 1996, but they made lots of swing tags saying 1996 and made some new ones of that bear in 1997, so they made the label say that the bear was MADE in 1997. This has happened to me plenty of times, no error there.

I love your website you have here. Just thought I would throws that in real quick..lol. ANYWAYS-
Like you, I am a collector and lover of my beanie babies. As a small child, age 7-8, I remember the Beanies craze…My deceased great-grandmother (R.I.P.) started the CRAZY COLLECTING that has each and almost every female (and some males) in my family going insane. TO THE POINT<<<<<I cannot seem to locate correct info on a beanie baby I've had for a while now and I was just made aware that it's a recalled BB. "Iggy" I have been made aware that Iggy was recalled for the tag misplacement, the red tongue hanging from his mouth, and "iggy is suppose to be a chameleon instead of an Iguana.
SOMEONE PLEASE INFORM ME of what I may have and/or a way to find out…PLEASE??? Thank you either way if you can or cannot help me.

    Love My Beanies - 10 May, 2016

    Hello! Thank you for coming to the site! There are many different versions of Iggy. It seems that back in the day, the Ty workers didn’t know the difference from iguanas and chameleons. There were some made with mix-matched tags, some with tongues, some without. You probably do have one of the versions that was released. None of them have any significant value because so many were released, but it’s crazy how there are probably 5-7 different versions out there.

I have a Strut beanie with the tush tag pink number inside the tag is off center where the whole left curve of the stamp is missing and is numbered 500. This beanie also has on left side of hang tag Ty, Europe Ltd.
Fareham, Hants
P015 5TX, U.K.

But all other beanies with no mistakes say Ty, Europe, Gosport, Hampshire, U.K. But I have found on my Rocket beanie the same Farmham, Hants as my Struts above has with other tag and tush errors. Along with my Puffer having the Farmham, Hants with other errors and my Jabber has this Farmham, Hants along with other errors. My question here were all these birds meant to have the Farmham, Hants address on them? Because my Early ( robin ) beanie has the GOSPORT but it’s spelled GASPORT, Early is also a bird made the same year as some of the others and it has two other errors as well.

Anyone have any suggestions on what these maybe worth or if that Farmham, Hants should be on all those tags. Thanks!

          Hi Amber! After collecting beanies for years, I have definitely seen some fakes out there. The best thing to do is research on a case-to-case basis. For example, certain beanies with have specific generations of swing/tush tags, then there are physical traits to look for (ie. length of ears, discoloration etc…) Because there are well over 2K different beanies, it would be very difficult to give you examples of every single detail that you should look for. My suggestion would be to use websites and Beanie Baby collecting/selling groups. The seasoned collector will know exactly what to look for. I am part of one on Facebook that is great called “Beanie Babies Collectors”. If you ever have a specific question, there are tons of users on there that can help you out if you post photos etc… I also use TyCollectors.com for my personal reference, there is a bunch of information there but I use this link – http://tycollector.com/beanies/beanie-roster.htm

          That is complete list of beanie babies, including their photo’s, which tags they should have and any counterfeit alerts. I hope this helps!

My mother collected Beanies until she passed. I took some that I thought might be worth something. One particular one is Blackie the bear. His swing tag has 2 misspellings on it. 1 says Suface wash and the other says Origiinal. I also noticed that the dates on the tush tag and swing tag are different. Is he worth anything?

My Gobbles hang tag states “Gobbles November 27 1996” however his tush tag reads 1997. I believe he is a 4th generation, but I’m clueless to his worth. Any ideas? Thank you.
