    WHAT IS THE COLLECTION'S NAME?
    • "Attic Collectibles" (initially)

    • "Ty Collectibles" (next)

    • "Attic Treasures" (the trademarked name)

    WHEN DID THE COLLECTION ORIGINATE?
    • 1993, a little before Beanie Babies

    WHO ARE THE NAMED ARTISTS?

    • Ty Warner, Nola Hart, Ruth Fraser, Anne Nickels

    WATSON Watson, Gen 5 Gen 5

     

    DOES TAG CONDITION AFFECT VALUE?
    (Not much ... Read on)

    • Collectors are more concerned with ATTICS than their tags

    • MINT SWING TAGS ARE RARE   (add 10%)

    • ORIGINAL BUTTONS ARE RARE (add 10%-25%)

    WHAT ARE ATTICS WORTH ?

    • The 'value' of anything is what it is worth to each person


    • ... buyer, seller or trader
    • A quiet collection until 1998 ... when when values soared

    • Collecting Ty Beanies was the first collecting experience for many. The collector bug has motivated many to look for the next, great collection. Moving into the Attics is a natural.

    HOW ARE ATTICS PRODUCED?

    • Naked

    • Clothed, with buttons

    • Clothed, without buttons

    • Official issues shown in Ty catalogs (were prototypes for catalog pics, but were produced differently than pictured)

    • Variations of official issues (produced by Ty, but not in catalogs)

    EXAMPLES

    Clifford, Gen 1 was ONLY produced with GREEN ribbon
    Reggie & Henry Gold, Gen 1 were ONLY produced with NAVY ribbons

    WAS ATTIC ALTERED AFTER ISSUE?
    • My detailed lists tell you whether your Attics were 'modified'

    • ATTICS WITH ORIGINAL BUTTONS ARE VERY RARE

    • Buttons may have been removed at point of sale

    • Clothing can be removed or changed at the point of sale by children, retailers, owners playing with them

    • In Gen 4 and Gen 5, Ty stopped producing buttons (even though shown in catalogs with buttons); probably due to both liability and cost for Ty

    • CAUTION ON NECK RIBBONS: Different color ribbons are flying onto Attics that ARE NOT the ribbons issued with the Attic.

    • CAUTION: Know you are dealing with a reputable trader !

     

    WHAT ARE ATTIC ANOMALIES & VARIATIONS?

    VERY RARE ATTICS

    • Woolie Gold - the only 100% wool Attic produced

    • White Gilbert - is Gen 1 Nicholas, with a 'Gilbert' swing

    • Henry Gold - later produced as Henry Brown

    • Others anomalies & variations are described for Attics on this site

    •  

      AND WHO IS WOOLIE BROWN?
      Woolie Brown Woolie Brown, Gen 1Generation 1

    • He was ONLY A PROTOTYPE and was never produced for sale (even though he appeared on the Ty site).

    • This fact has been confirmed by one of the Attic artists
