Beanie Boos are a series of plush toys released by Ty beginning in 2009. Each Beanie Boo comes with a unique name and birth date included on its tag.
Although Ty released many editions of Beanie Boos ranging from key-clip to extra-large, all toys with the same name have the same birthday. The inclusion of birthdays gives a personal feel to the toy, as does the included poem or tag phrase.
Collectors find lists of statistics and regional variations for each previously released Beanie Boo on TyCollector.com. TyCollector.com maintains a large database of Beanie Boo information, including birthdays for every model.
