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:
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.
In 1998, Ty Inc. introduced a new line of toys called Beanie Buddies made of a soft nylon cloth. The original nine Beanie Buddies were: Beak the Kiwi Bird, Humphrey the Camel, Jake the Mallard Duck, Peanut the Royal Blue Elephant, Quackers the Duck, Rover the Red Dog, Stretch the Ostrich, Teddy the Cranberry Bear, and Twigs the Giraffe.
