Beanie Babies Hang Tag Generations 1-4

All Beanie Babies come with a Ty Hang Tag that will be the key to know if your Beanie is worth money. Hang tags will also be referred to as Swing and Heart Tags.  Here you will find information on the Hang Tags for the first 4 Generations of Beanie Babies.

Most 1st and some 2nd Generation Beanie Babies, with proper tags, can be worth money even today. Once you start getting into the 3rd and 4th Generation Beanie Babies, very few of those are worth money so keep that in mind.  If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment on this page! Happy Beanie hunting!





1st Generation Hang Tags – Skinny Ty Logo

Click on images for a larger view

  • All 1st Generation Heart Tags are flat and do not open up like a book.
  • 1st Gen. Hang Tag Beanie Babies were made in either China or Korea.
  • Tags that are still attached to the Beanie Baby and in good condition are worth more.
  • 1st Generation U.K. Beanie Babies had a special tag with ‘CE’ on the white side of the tag.
  • Many people get fooled thinking they have a valuable Beanie Baby, only to find out it doesn’t have a 1st Generation Hang Tag and was apart of another Generation that was mass produced.
  • Collectors often refer to the 1st Generation Heart Tags as “Skinny Ty” for the skinny Ty lettering on the front.
  • The ‘Teenie Beanies’ distributed by McDonalds also had flat tags.
  • McDonalds Teenie Beanies are not considered apart of the 1st Generation family.
  • The McDonalds Beanie Babies are clearly marked ‘Teenie’ and are worth less.

2nd Generation Hang Tags

  • 2nd Generation Heart Tags DO open like a book.
  • The “Skinny Ty” is still the font on the front of the tags.
  • On the back of the tag, there is a bar code and the phrase “Retain Tag For Reference.”
  • Beanie Babies from the U.K will have the ‘CE’ logo as shown below.

3rd Generation Hang Tags – Bubble Font Ty

3rd Gen Heart Tag

 

The Ty Logo is now in a “bubble font” style. There are many different versions of the Heart Tags in the 3rd Generation and below you can see the differences. Beanie Babies with the 3rd Generation Heart Tag and a 1st Generation Tush Tag can be worth money for the right beanie.

 

PLEASE NOTE:
99.9% of Beanie Babies with 3rd Gen Hang Tags are worth less than $10

3rd Generation Tag Variation 1

Known as the “German Tags” these can be very rare and sought after for 3rd Generation Beanie Babies. You’ll also notice that the “to” and “from” on the tag will be written in italics while other Beanie Babies with 3rd Generation Heart Tags will have regular font.

On the inside of the Tag is has The Beanie Babies Collection underlined and the words: All Rights Reserved. Caution: Remove this tag before giving toy to a child. Handmade in China. Surface Wash. The back will be distinguishable by the “Importeur Ty Ty Deutschland” at the top of the tag. Also look for the U.K. ‘CE’ mark next to the bar code.

3rd Generation Tag Variation 2

Click on images for a larger view

The 3rd Generation Tag with the “Retain Tag For Reference” phrase on the back of the tag seem somewhat rare. The inside of the tag is also unique as it has the © on the left and also the phrase “For ages 3 and up.”

 

3rd Generation Tag Variation 3

Click on images for a larger view

The distinguishing feature on these 3rd Generation Swing Tags is that on the back of the tag, it says “Please remove all swing tags before giving this item to a child under 36 months.”  Also, next to the bar code is the U.K. ‘CE’ logo. On the inside of the tag, only the U.S.A Ty address has the © logo next to it.

3rd Generation Tag Variation 4

Click on images for a larger view

On these 3rd Gen Swing Tags you’ll now notice that the © logo is next to all the addresses on the inside of the tag.  On the back, the phrase is slightly different as it now says: “Please remove all swing tags before giving this item to a child”.


4th Generation Hang Tags – Poems!

4th Generation Front

4th and 5th Generation Beanie Baby hang tags look pretty similar because of the Gold Star that says: “Beanie Original Baby”. But there are some things you can spot so you can tell the difference. On the inside of 4th Generation Tags, you’ll notice it says: The Beanie Babies ™ Collection, The Beanie Babies ™ Collection ®, or The Beanie Babies ® Collection ™ while on 5th Generation Tags it says: The Beanie Babies Collection ®

 

PLEASE NOTE:
99.9% of Beanie Babies with 4th Gen Hang Tags are worth less than $5

 

These are the first Beanie Babies to have the poem and date of birth written on the swing tag. There are a few different variations of 4th Gen swing tags, be sure to check to see which one you have.

There are some variations to the 4th Generation Hang Tags, and most of those involve the addition of the Ty website on the inside of the Tag.  This were the first tags to have www.ty.com on the tags. The Ty company was having some issues with obtaining the domain and on some 4th Gen tags the domain will be cut off, or a white sticker will be applied over the area with the website.

4th Generation Tag Variation – Sticker over www.ty.com

 

4th Generation Missing Website

These are considered somewhat rare, as Ty placed a white sticker over the portion of the tag that says: “Visit our Webpage!!! http://www.ty.com”

Click on images for a larger view

 

 

4th Generation Website CoverupYou can see that even the sticker doesn’t completely cover up the website text on these 4th Generation Beanie Babies. Typically Beanies that have this type of tag can sell for $8-50+.  Some can be found on eBay for $9.99 or less. It just all depends on which Beanie you have and if there are some collectors out there who will are willing to pay more than $10.

4th Generation Tag Variation – No Website printed at bottom

Click on images for a larger view

4th Generation Tag No WebsiteThere are some 4th Generation Tags that instead of a sticker over the website information, they simply leave that off the tag. This Coral 4th Gen Beanie sold for $26.00 in May 2013. Like the ones with the sticker over the website, these tags can be hit or miss in terms of value. $26.00 is a good price on the Coral and many Beanies with this type of 4th Gen Tag will be worth less than that.

 

 

4th Generation Tag Variation – Germany + Website Info

Click on images for a larger view

4th Generation Germany TagThese Swing tags are very common to find on 4th Generation Beanie Babies.  They will have the website information at the bottom (Ty must have paid decent money for the domain) and also the Germany Ty address will be printed on the left hand side of the tag. On these tags the line: The Beanie Babies ™ Collection has the ™ mark.

 

 

 4th Generation Tag Variation – Canada Address + ®

Click on images for a larger view

4th Generation Version 5 Inside

This variation of the 4th Gen Swing Tag is very similar to the one posted above. The subtle differences are that is now has the Canada Ty address instead of the Germany one. Also, they but a ® and a ™ in the line: The Beanie Babies ® Collection ™

I have a question for the page. When I was very young I began collecting beanie babies but I didn’t know that they would be worth anything in the future. I have 2nd gen beanie babies (some very rare) but cut off the tags and then stored all of the tags in a separate container with the beanie babies (so technically I have all of the tags but they are no longer attached). Would these beanie babies be worth anything with their tags though they are removed or should I just give them to my nieces to play with? Thanks everyone!

Reply

    Certain ones can be worth something with the hang tag removed, they tend to be a lot less, but still have value. A more controversial method is to just re attach the tags.

    Yes it is most extremely rare. In fact a similar blank tag beanie we sold at auction hit 29,000 gbp (approximately 75,000 usd) just last month at sotheby’s here. The blank tag was thought to be the only in existance and now if yours is confirmed as unaltered mwmt we have the same buyers information available and can arrange for you to put it at auction here.

    99.9% of 4th and 5th Generation Beanie Babies are worthless. eBay sellers will put crazy prices on their items for some reason. The odds of them selling for that price are 0. I think the most valuable Princess Bear might be worth $40. The rest are in the $2 range. Ty made over 1 million princess bears, they are very common and have very little value.

    Once you get into the 4th Generation for a Legs, the value is very minimal.

What’s the difference in price when it says PVC or PE pellets?

    Probably not much nowadays. Maybe it meant more back in the day.

    The misspelling of the hang tag is fairly common on 4th Generation versions, the value though would depend on which Beanie Babie it is.

    Hello! Typically Beanie Babies without the hang tags are not worth anything at all. On some occasions, ones with 1st Generation Tush Tags http://lovemybeanies.com/1st-generation-beanie-babies-tush-tag/ can have a little bit of value.

    Ones with 4th Generation Tags were unfortunately made during the height of Beanie Babies popularity and only have minimal value.

Help lol have about 300 beanies some rare some not id like to sell as a whole. Any advice? Trying not to get ripped, I inherited them awhile back and in 1999 she had them appraised for about 15000-20000. Thank you

    Hello! Your best bet is to go through and pick out the ones with 1st Generation Tush Tags: http://lovemybeanies.com/1st-generation-beanie-babies-tush-tag/

    These are the earliest ones and can be worth decent money depending what Hang Tag it has. Beanie Babies with 1st Generation Tush Tags can only have hang tags that are 1st, 2nd or 3rd Generation. Versions with “1st/1st” Tags are worth the most, and ones with 3rd/1st Tags tend not to be worth as much.

    See if you have any first generations versions and try to determine what hang tag it has. This page describes hang tag generations 1-3 and can help you out. Let me know if you found any, which generation both tags are from, and I can help you on some potential values.

Hey I have one and just one beanie baby and I don’t see it listed on your page. His name is Thomas. He is in mint condition and has the hanging {with the word classic} TY. He is about elbow to hand in length. Any idea? http://tycollector.com/classics/thomas-1139.htm I have him in mint condition. Any idea what he may be worth?

    Hello, a couple have recently sold online for about $7-10. It’s apart of the Classics line, which are larger than Beanie Babies.

I have a lot of beanie babies that websites say are rare but some have the tag missing so would that make them worthless and I also have a princess Diana one but without its tag also so would that be worthless also

Hi, my name is Mary. I got a Manny the Manatee beanie baby with a poem error ‘like’ instead of ‘likes’ (She likes to twirl and like to bow). It has a 4th generation variation 3 (Germany and website info), and I don’t know if it’s a rare mistake or a common one.

I have at least 100 beanie babies. I’ve looked up the names of quite a few and they were supposedly “retired” like Derby, Erin, Millennium, and Hope. I need help determining what they are worth. All are mint condition with tags attached some in the tag nprotective cases.

please and thank you

Hi, I have a Flitter and Valentina, both with what appear to be 4th gen tags with Canada address but they’re slightly different than you show here. It says “The Beanie Babies Collection +R” (you know, the R with the circle around it :)). It does list the website but without the http:// and no “visit our web page!”. Any chance that these differences are noteworthy? I.e., of course, more valuable? Thanks!

    Hello Lisa! It appears that Flitter and Valentina both come with 5th Generation Hang Tags which are just as you described them. I haven’t created a page for 5th Generation Tags and above, but have been meaning to. Both Flitter & Valentina can have different types of 5th Gen Tags, but from what I have seen, none that create extra value.

Hello! My question is for Georgette, I have a third generation hang tag, but can’t figure out the Tush tag as it is a rusty Brown color with ©1993 Ty inc. Pvc Pellets reg. Pa 1965 [KR]? Want aware the tush tags come in different colors? Also have a 2000 hang tag cashew with a shiny silver tush tag? Thank You for any help an have a Great Week!

    Love My Beanies - 5 April, 2014

    Hello Kellie! Your Georgette is actually apart of the Ty Attic Treasures line, which is kind of like a different “model” of Beanie Babies. They had some different type of Tush Tags that were different from regular Beanie Babies. Your Cashew is a regular Beanie Babie and the shiny silver tag is from the 9th Generation. Hope that helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

I’m trying to find what generation my frog “legs” is from your website. It looks like a 3rd generation variation 4, but mine swing tag does not have “CE” on the back.

Reply
    Love My Beanies - 13 January, 2014

    Hi Angela, There might be some beanies from the 3rd generation that don’t have the CE, but I’m looking into that now. Do you know which Tush Tag you have? That will tell you what generation your swing tag is from.

    Here are the 1st Gen Tush: http://lovemybeanies.com/1st-generation-beanie-babies-tush-tag/
    2nd Gen Tush: http://lovemybeanies.com/2nd-generation-beanie-babies-tush-tags/

    If you have a 2nd generation tush tag, then you 100% have a 3rd generation swing tag Legs. The Tush tag & the swing tag changed for the 4th generation. Let me know if you still need help identifying your beanie.
