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”.  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.

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 to have an error tush tag? Sure, some error tag Beanies can command a premium. Sometimes in the 1.5x-2x value premium.

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 tush tag.

For Blackie, the error in spelling doesn’t impact the price very much, they sell for less than $20.

Beanie Babies made in Canada will have the extra Canadian Tush Tag attached.

Love My Beanies

  • So I have Bessie the cow that has surface misspelled. Im just wondering how much it could be worth? I see so many different prices on ebay, just want to know what mine is really worth.

  • 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?

  • Have 2nd generation curly type beanie baby tush tag in red and white but is filled with PE. Pellets instead of pvc pellets. Wats it worth?

  • 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 a 4th gen legs with sticker over web site and surface spelled wrong on touch tag. DOB 4-25-93 style4020. Any idea of value? Excellent condition

    • I also have a Teddy ..2nd gen swing tag. Where it’s supposed to say 1993 it says 1983. I’m looking for answers as well.

  • I have 3rd generation Halo, Crunch, Nanook, Stretch, and Mystic. All in great condition. With the exception of Nanook’s tag being a bit tattered… What are they worth?

  • I have Curly and Blackie with the extra Canada tag and they both have several mistakes on the hang tag and tush tag. They are in mint condition with the protector on the swing or hanging tag. Are they worth anything? Thank you.

  • I have a Mischief Style 7000. It has first gen hang tag, and second gen tush tag. It has red 1987 on tush tag. And black lettering for the rest of the tush tag. Reg.No.PA-1965(KR).All new material.Contents:Polyester. Handmade in Korea.For ages 2 and up. Red heart on other side and additional tag with blue smiling star.

  • I have a Rainbow chameleon. I believe that he is dyed incorrectly as the hang tag says “red, green, blue and yellow” but he is mostly blue with a small bit of green. Hang tag has a star on it.

  • I have a black bear beanie baby whose name is The End on the heat sticker that’s his name with three blank lines for d.o.b. and a poem below it none of the others have anything like this and I haven’t seen it why is this. It appears to be second generation
