2001 to 2010
Ty's line of small-sized Beanie Babies, called Jingle Beanies, are designed to be used as holiday ornaments and/or gift tags. The Jingle Beanie bears are 5 1/4" high and are made from the same material used on Beanie Babies. They may have stitched or plastic noses.
The Jingle Beanies retail for $2.99/each.
Jingle Beanies were first introduced to retailers on September 9, 2001 at the Boston Gift Show and later announced to collectors on the Ty website on September 17, 2001. The heart tag on Jingle Beanies do not contain a birthday or poem. Instead, they are designed to be used as gift tags with a place to write whom you are giving the gift to and whom it is from. Despite this intention, they also make wonderful non-breakable ornaments.
