THIS BEANIE IS FROM A RARE COLLECTION. SWING TAG 4TH GENERATION VERSION 1. These 4th generation heart tags were introduced during the Spring of 1996. These tags are the same size and shape as the third version heart tag, but a yellow star that says “BEANIE ORIGINAL BABY” was added. The “Ty” was shrunk a little and the gold trim was removed from the “Ty” lettering. The inside right of the tag changed some. The Beanies name is now followed by “TM” and the Style number, and Ty added the Beanies birthday and a poem. Ty also added their website address. The back of the tag now says “For ages 3 and up”, followed by Surface Wash. There are 6 different variations of the 4th generation tag! This version should have a round “CE” sticker on the back of the tag. Most of these have “Made in Korea” on them. TUSH TAG 3TH GENERATION. The 3rd generation added the words The Beanie Babies Collection TM to the top of the tush tag. The red heart has decreased in size but still has the ® symbol to the lower right of the heart. There are various mistakes associated with this tag. Some Libeartys had the word Beanine instead of Beanie and instead of Surface on Slys tag, it said Sufrace.
