New July Beanies® Full Of Surprises

July 2002

New July Beanies® Full Of Surprises.

Sampson, Harry, Bam and Gizmo all have one thing in common – they’re the latest additions to the extensive Ty Beanie Baby family now available in New Zealand. Collectors the world over have been waiting expectantly for the new July arrivals and have been talking about them all over the internet. Now local collectors can get caught up in the fun as well.

Harry™ the Bear is a fitting gift for bear and teddy fans of all ages. His long brown fur gives him an air of friendly sophistication, at the same time making him stand out from the rest of the collection. Meanwhile, dogs don’t come much cheekier than Sampson™ the Dog, with his ears set wide, he’s ready for action. He’s cute and spritely and full of fun.

For those looking for something a little different, there’s Gizmo™ the Lemur and Bandito™ the Raccoon, who are sure to appeal to those with more exotic tastes. Gizmo, with his long tail is sure to be found swinging from a curtain rail, just as he would if he were high in the tree tops. You won’t find Bandito undertaking such escapades, with black patches on both eyes, this shy little outlaw prefers to take a more undercover approach.

Bam™ the Ram with his soft blue and pink fleece will be right at home in New Zealand, but don’t get any ideas about taking him near the shearing shed, his set of horns will keep you at bay

All Beanie Babies® are available from selected toy and gift stores throughout New Zealand and retails for only $17.95.

About Beanie Babies®

An American concept since 1993, Beanie Babies® are a comprehensive range of limited edition toy bears, which have been available in New Zealand since late 2001. The cute, cuddly range of plush toys have become popular collectibles the world over.

Manufactured by US based Ty Inc, Beanie Babies® are kept as sought after items by retiring lines of designs as they go. Many of the most popular Beanie Babies® become collectors’ items that are often traded on the internet.

All Beanie Babies® have their own name, birth date and poem printed in the heart shaped Ty Tag attached to one ear. Full of personality, each Beanie has special weighted fillings to enable versatile and lasting poses. All are made with anti-allergy, fire safe and hygienic materials that are colour fast and safe. Each is made from high quality soft material and features hand painted eyes and noses.

All sorts of complementary paraphernalia have developed as Beanie Babies®’ popularity grows including websites and newsletters, membership cards and crosswords, bags and games, stories and of course the ability to trade are all part of what makes this brand legendary.
