THE Accurate Princess Beanie Story

BEANIE VERSIONS

TAGS ISSUED

HISTORY

Be informed about what you are selling, trading, buying

Most traders are misinformed about Princess

because of deficient information

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Based UPON the FACTS ...

  • PVC PELLET TUSH TAG and PE PELLET TUSH TAG), on the original beanie version, were produced simultaneously, in different facilities.

  • SOME WOULD LIKE US TO BELIEVE THAT THE ORIGINAL PRINCESS VERSION, TAGGED WITH A PVC PELLET TUSH, WAS THE FIRST PRINCESS PRODUCED ... but have no facts to support it.

  • THE ORIGINAL PRINCESS VERSION, WHETHER pvc OR pe tush, Should be VALUED EXACTLY THE SAME.

Review the facts & decide for yourself.


both PVC pellet & PE pellet tush tags

  • WERE MADE in China

  • WERE Issued DEC, 1997

  • Were produced at the same time in different factories

I CHALLENGE ANYONE TO PROVE DIFFERENTLY.

Important Note on Princess Tags

  • Princess tags DO NOT follow THE USUAL tag generation criteria FOR TY BEANIE BABIES.

  • LISTED BELOW ARE THE ACTUAL PRINCESS TAGS.

  • There are TWO distinct criteria TO CONSIDER
    1. What Version is the "Beanie' itself ?
    2. What Issue are the 'Tags' ?

  • VERSIONS refer to changes in Beanie itself


  • Changes in the Beanie, RETIRE
    previous Beanie Versions
  • ISSUES refer to Tags


  • SWING tag & TUSH Tag changes RETIRE
    previous Tag Issues

News Updates are published chronologically, first to last,
so that you may draw your own conclusions

January, 1998 News Update

(Reuters News)

"Diana's Signature To Be On Logo On Approved Souvenirs"

Princess Memorial Fund Logo

  • "DIANA, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund has an Official Logo:

  • Replica of Princess Diana's signature, reproduced in purple. Items approved by the fund will be identified by its logo ... Diana's looping signature in purple, over the words, "Princess of Wales Memorial Fund."

  • "The logo is suitable for reproduction on all kinds of products, surfaces and media. The public can have confidence that all moneys raised through projects carrying the new logo (projects & fund raising events) will be accounted for to the Trustees and will benefit the Fund."


February, 1998 News Update

  • Ty Reports "PE" Tush Is 'Production Mistake' (which makes sense since lab reports confirm that pvc pellets are in both pvc and pe labeled beanies.

  • At the New York Show in february, 1998, Ty again reported PE pellets as a mistake.

  • Beanie Brokers and Investors are buying large quantities of "PE" tagged Princess and holding on to them.

 

FEBRUARY, 1998

Swing 2 & Tush 2 Emerge with

  • Swing Issue 2 reads, Handmade in Indonesia

  • Tush Issue 2 reads, Handmade in Indonesia

  • TUSH label PVC pellets, lends credibility to PE- labeled tush as a mistake

Swing 2, Indonesia with Tush 2, PVC Indonesia


Swing 3 with Tush 1 (PE) Emerges with

  • Double line spacing before, "Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund" (highlighted in pic)

  • With Tush issue 1: PE pellets, Made in China

Swing 3, Double Spacing, with Tush 1

Tush 1 (made in China) with Swing 3 (Indonesia)

If you have a PVC tush with Double Spacing Swing,
send me a scan,
and I'll include it here.


FEBRUARY, 1998

Beanie Version 2 Emerges with

  • PALE GREEN STEM

  • Swing Issue 2 & Tush Issue 2 (made in Indonesia)

  • Possibly, other tag issues. too?

Beanie Version 2 Beanie Version 2 with pale green stem PALE GREEN STEM
Beanie Version 1      Beanie Version 1 with bright green stem BRIGHT GREEN STEM

These are NOT scanning color differentials

multiple Scans were made of MULTIPLE beanies

with the SAME results

Thanks to my good friend, Sonny, for these TWO scans

 

March, 1998 News Update

  • TV's "60 Minutes" reports that all commercial products marketed as donating monetary proceeds to the Memorial Fund MUST have the approval of the Memorial Fund

  • AND contain the Fund LOGO on the product

 

May, 1998 News Update

  • News articles in London Observer Service and USA Today confirm  Princess Beanie has been officially endorsed by the Memorial Fund

  • If TY'S donations are to continue, ANY new Princess productions must carry the Fund's logo ON SWINGS

  • For investors, this will be the LEAST valuable beanie due to mass production

 

April, 1999 News

  • ALL beanie VERSIONS AND TAGS ISSUED TO DATE HAVE BEEN OFFICIALLY RETIRED BY TY

  •  Commentary

  • Get the original PVC & PE issues while you can

  • They are obviously the most valuable due to the most limited production.
