"Derby" the horse Beanie Baby has a solid tan body with a white mark on its forehead, dark brown inner ears, coarse brown yarn mane and tail, glossy gray and black plastic eyes, and little embroidered black nostrils.  Derby was born on September 16, 1995, introduced on December 15, 1997, and retired on December 15, 1998.  Derby rests on its belly, is filled with polyester fiber and P.E. pellets, and measures 5" wide across the front legs and is 8" long.  The 5th generation swing tag is attached and is in very good condition but with light wear to the crease.  The 6th generation tush tag is in good condition and the horse is in pristine condition, with no flaws.  

The Poem Inside the Swing Tag

All the other horses used to tattle
Because Derby never wore his saddle
He left the stables, and the horses too
Just so Derby can be with you !

About Beanie Babies

Beanie Babies are a line of PVC pellet-filled toys created by Ty Warner in 1991, reached their peak in popularity in mid-1990s, and ceased operations in December 1999.  Due to popular demand, Ty Inc. restarted in 2000 with a Beanie Baby named "The Beginning."  The nine original Beanie Babies released in 1994:

  • Legs the Frog
  • Squealer the Pig
  • Spot the Dog
  • Flash the Orca
  • Splash the Whale
  • Chocolate the Moose
  • Patti the Platypus
  • Brownie the Bear
  • Pinchers the Lobster

Beanie Babies have two identification tags:  the heart-shaped swing tag, and the fabric tush tag attached to the bottom.  Over time, the tags were redesigned to include poems inside the heart tag, date of birth, font changes, and the addition of yellow stars.  These changes are referred to as Tush and Heart tag "Generations," and there are currently 15 swing tag generations and 13 tush tag generations.  Some tags contain spelling and date errors which can lend greater value to the Beanie Baby.
