They have been stored in plastic bins in my home for 20+ years, keeping them in excellent condition. I was originally born in England in 1991 and lived there until I was about 7 years old.
Most of my beanie babies were bought while I was living in England (as I was younger at the time and LOVED cute stuffed animals). It was only within the last 15 years that I moved to the U. And I brought my beanie baby collection with me. They have been stored since we moved in 1998. I have been doing research about rare beanie babies and I have yet to find one quite like mine.I cannot find anywhere online one that has'moose' misspelled within the poem. There are several things that make this one unique! Uppercase'i' looks like a lower case'L. Left side of Inside tag. Comma missing between Oakbrook and IL.
3rd Ty address on the tag is'Ty Deutschland 90008 Nurnberg. Right side of inside tag.
Has style number'style 4015' after name'Chocolate. Date of birth is in numbers, not spelled out -'DATE OF BIRTH: 4-27-93. In the poem,'moose' is misspelled'mocse. This is what makes this so special! I have been searching the internet for one with the misspelling like mine and I cannot find one!
This beanie baby actually has 2 tush tags, which is very unusual. There is no stamp on the inside of the tush tag.
(Stamps within the tush tag indicate mass production). Also, the star on the tush tag looks to be placed on'after-the-fact'- it looks as though it is stuck on like tape, rather than printed onto the tag itself. COMES FROM A SMOKE FREE AND PET FREE HOME! PLEASE SEE ALL PICTURES FOR A CLEAR VIEW OF THE ITEM AND IT'S CONDITION.
THE SWING TAG DOES SHOW SOME SIGNS OF WEAR, BUT ALL OF THE PRINT IS LEGIBLE. WHAT IS SHOWN IN THE PICTURES IS WHAT YOU WILL BE RECEIVING! EVERYTHING I LISTED IS BECAUSE OF THINGS THAT I HAVE RESEARCHED ON MY OWN. PLEASE MESSAGE ME AND ASK ANY AND ALL QUESTIONS YOU HAVE PRIOR TO PUCHASE AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO ANSWER THEM FOR YOU! REASONABLE OFFERS WILL BE CONSIDERED!
