Beanie Kids are just the
The Original Beanie Kids are palm-sized 20 cm plush toys, under-filled with beans that retail for $11.95.
These soft, cuddly, go-anywhere plush pals all have their own names, birthdays, and their own little personalities displayed on the swing tag.
When you purchase a Beanie Kid, be sure to look after it.
The condition of your Beanie Kid and their swing tag could mean hundreds of dollars to a collector in the future.
What is it about these soft, cuddly, go-anywhere plush pals that have made them one of the hottest collectables in the world?
Beanie Kids are fun!
Beanie Kids are absolutely adorable, but they have to be played with!
Kids of all ages are taking Spike the Bully to school, Sammy the Punk to bed and Chuckie The Chook
adorns computer screens everywhere!
Beanie Kids are affordable!
At $11.95 at Nana's Teddies, Beanie Kids are a whole lot of fun for only a little bit of money.
Their own little personalities!
Each has their own name, birthday and zodiac sign on their swing tags
This gives the collector a date to celebrate their Beanie Kids birthdays, and find Beanie Kids with birthdays the same as their own, or their friends or family.
Authenticity look-a-likes produced by other companies should not be confused with the original Beanie Kids which bear the Skansen hang tag.
Retirements - Premier Kids & Limited Editions!
Already many of the cast are retired with more designs launched all the time.
Retirements and Limited Editions will only be offered to existing Beanie Kids stockists.
Premier Kids are a very special release each month and each Beanie Kid stockist only gets a set allocation to sell. Premier Kids are then retired on their day of release and cannot be reordered.
This ensures that they fast become sought after designs and immediately go up in value on the 2nd hand collectors market.
Limited edition releases are treated the same as Premier Kids and are also retired on day of release so again you need to be quick to secure one!
Original Beanie Kids are hard to find!
Demand for Beanie Kids has been so overwhelming, Skansen will be limiting the number of Beanie Kids each store can order.
This actually increases the popularity and the value of Beanie Kids as the designs become harder to find.
Beanie Kids release extremely rare and very sought after MUTATIONS from time to time.
There are two types of Mutations, both are exciting to find and not only are they a big thrill to get but are a very valuable addition to your collection.
Reverse Mutations are secretly released as a “normal release” so no one knows that they are a mutation.
Then when we reorder them they come in as a different colour combination.
This makes the reordered versions the normal design with the first delivery on day of release version an instant REVERSE MUTATION.
Sealed Bag Mutations are the rarest of them all and generally have 3 versions released all at once in a sealed foil bag to prevent peeking.
You purchase a sealed bag at regular Beanie Kid price of $11.95 and when you open it you may get a huge surprise of finding a rare Mutation inside.
There are 3 versions, each has a distinctive difference but the main difference is the colour of his nose and sometimes he is slightly different in colour.
- A standard design which has a black nose.
- A Silver Mutation with a silver nose - quite rare with recent releases selling on places like Ebay for over $100 the week of release.
- A Gold Mutation with a golden nose - very rare with only 55 released and selling at over $1100 on Ebay within a few days of their release.
Cuddly Kids are really a bigger 42 cm versions of Beanie Kids and are a great addition to your collection with a new one released every month.
Not all Beanie Kid designs are selected to become Cuddly Kids so the few that are become really collectable in no time at all.
Cuddly Kids are great value at only $34.95.
Great Big Kids.
Great Big Kids are the biggest of them all 80 cm tall.
Only a few have been released so far with the promise of more to come.
Great Big Kids are amazing value for such a huge character at only $74.95

Firstly, you adopt your new pet and name it.
Then you can custom design a room for it.
You can play games in the Arcade, or compete against other players in tournaments.
You can answer quizzes in Quizzy's Question Corner and enter contests too.
All of these things earn you Kinzcash, which you can use to go shopping for your pet in the virtual W Shop.
The W shop is the section of the Website where you can buy toys, furniture and clothes.
There are also great stories to read and fun daily activities to keep you and your new pet entertained.
You can learn lots of fun facts at Quizzy's. Quizzy’s is a trivia question area.
The questions at Quizzy's are age appropriate, and most are educationally based.
There are also several arcade games that promote learning.

The Webkinz web site has been designed for users aged 6-13+ and is intended to include content for all ages and
levels of computer skill within that range.
Ganz have designed the site to reach the widest possible audience within that range.
Ganz understand that some of the games and jobs may be difficult for younger users, but research and experience has shown that
younger audiences can quite enjoy the site with the support of an adult.
That said, Ganz have designed some of the games and jobs for younger children.
Both the Fence Painting and Shoe Store Clerk (both memory games) have proven fun and achievable by younger users.
In the Arcade, Ganz recommend for younger users Wacky Zingoz and Tulip Trouble 2.

you only get when adopting the pet of the month – it is filled with extra items to add to your collection.
