1st Generation Beanie Babies Tush Tags
1st Generation Beanie Baby Tush Tags are really straight forward and simple. They have black lettering on white background sewn into the tush area of the Beanie Baby.
Beanie Babies with 1st or 2nd Generation Hang Tag will have a 1st Generation Tush Tag EVERYTIME.
Some 3rd Generation Hang Tag Beanie Babies will also have the 1st Generation Tush Tag. Generally speaking, Beanie Babies with a 1st Gen Tush Tag can be worth money, especially if they also have a 1st Generation Hang Tag.
All 1st Generation Tush Tags will have the date 1993 or 1995 on them.
Most Common 1st Generation Tush Tag
In the picture above you can see that it says the Beanie Baby was Handmade in China. There are some variations to the 1st Generation Tush Tags, and those are explored more in depth below.
Korean & CE Tush Tags
Generally speaking the “Hand Made in Korea” Tush Tag is considered more rare and can at times command extra value.
You’ll also notice that some of the 1st Gen Tush Tags will have the letters ‘CE’ on one side. These are sometimes referred to as the U.K. tag as they had to put the CE lettering to conform with local laws.
Rare Korean 4 Line Tag
This 1993 Tush Tag is the very rare “4 Line” version. You can see that it has 4 Lines of text, and does not have the words ‘Surface Washable’ underneath the ‘Handmade in Korea’ line.
If you have a 1st Generation Beanie Baby with this 4 Line Tush Tag then you might have just hit the jackpot. A Punchers/Pinchers version sold on eBay for $1,800 in June 2013.

Hi I have a Ty beanie Named Tuffy 1996 his tush tag is completely black, tell me more why it is ?
I found two Wise Class of 98 beanie babies. What’s puzzling was the swing tag has a plastic case on each. However, they have different shapes. One is a heart shape while the other one was a combination of one side vertical and one side horizontal while the edge kind of slanted.
The other curisity was the heart shaped swing tag plastic shaped can’t be opened at all. It was sealed so there is no way to read what’s inside it.
Anyone know heard about it.
I have Claude the Crab 9/3/95. Does anyone know the value?
