Beanie Baby Peace bears are fun to collect because no two are exactly alike. Collectors normally categorize Peace bears by either "predominant colors" or swing and tush tag variations. The colors are sometimes categorized further as "pastel" or vivid.
Ty produced Peace Beanie Baby bears in China and Indonesia. Every Peace bear is unique because of its Ty-dye fabric. Peace was the first Beanie Baby with an embroidered emblem.
The Peace Bear's introduction date of May 11, 1997, is the same date Garcia was retired. Peace is identical to Garcia except for the name, tags and the peace symbol on Peace's chest. There are two generally accepted categories of Peace; "tie-dyed" and pastel tie-dyed.The pastel, tie-dyed versions have 5th generation swing tags and 6th generation tush tags. SPECIAL FEATURES & ERRORS No stamp inside Tush Tag (Not mass-produced) Tush tag has the star, plus BOTH the "TM" and the circle "R" Tush Tag bottom line has 1965(KR) which means this was part of Korean market. On back of Swing tag there is a sticker on the back that reads: "Surface wash"! It is an actual add on sticker that was used on a rare few batch right before the craze and the error of mass production. Indicating this is by far, one of the very first batch ever made BEFORE the craze really hit. Ty Warner used older swing tags that did not say "Surface Wash" and just added the stickers!!! Truly a piece of history and not found easily! The Ty addresses listed on the left interior of the hang tag- the "Fareham, Hants" is collectible and a rarity CONDITION This is in legitimate museum quality. Peace has been professionally stored, in a non-smoking. As you can tell from the photos, this Bear is the REAL McCoy.
