Beanie Kids are just the coolest!
The Original Beanie Kids are palm-sized 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 the hottest collectable 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!
Starting from $9.95 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.
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.
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.
Cuddle Kids are really bigger Beanie Kids and are a great addition to your collection with a new one releases every month.
Great Big Kids.
Great Big Kids are the biggest of them all 80cm tall. Only a few have been released so far with the promise of more to come.
