Maple was born July 1st, 1996 but his tush tag is printed with 1993. He was manufactured in Oak Brook, Illinois but his tag says Oakbrook with no space. He was introduced on January 1st, 1997 but the introduction date on his box is February 27th, 1997.
I only opened one of the back slots on the box to take a photo of the tag, other than that it has never been opened. The box is slightly discolored around the plastic due to age.
