Beanie Babies are crafted by Ty Warner. They are stuffed animals that don’t use conventional stuffing but instead use plastic pellets, also known as beans. Being understuffed with these plastic pellets gives each toy flexibility and adorable floppiness. The original collection was released in 1993, however, they were not factory-produced until 1994.Which Beanie Babies are from the original collection?

Due to their age and collectability, you should be careful when cleaning and storing your original Beanie Baby toy. It is recommended to store your collectible Ty Beanie away from direct sunlight and heat. You may also want to cover them so that they do not get dusty. If they become dirty, you can gently spot clean them with a soft cloth and warm water as needed.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by Ty Beanie Babies.
