Princess production in Indonesia
Princesswas also produced in Indonesia. Collectors frequently ask why an IndonesianPrincessis sometimes more valuable than aPrincessfrom the first production period in China? The answer lies in the "mystique" surrounding all of the Beanie Babies produced in Indonesia, not justPrincess. Indonesian Beanie Babies are reputed to have richer-colored and softer fabrics.Princessbears produced in Indonesia are much more difficult to find on the secondary market thanPrincessbears from the first period of production in China.
ThePrincessbears made in Indonesia were destined for the Canadian and European markets. This raises the possibility thatPrincessproduction in Indonesia began on the same date as production in China. This would place thePrincessbears made in Indonesia with no-space swing tags and P.V.C. tush tags into contention for "first edition" status.
Ty plush collectors often strive to have the "first" version of any Beanie Baby. It is generally believed a "first" version will always be the most valuable. The surprise appearance of a P.E. tush tag onPrincesscaused dilemmas with collectors who could not figure out which tush tag was the actual "first." Conflicting stories regarding the P.E. tush tag appeared in the media and on the Internet. Many collectors attempted to purchase twoPrincessbears, each with a different version of the tush tag. That way one of the two bears had to be the "first edition."
Initially, the P.E. tush tag onPrincesswas presumed to be an error. A few articles in the media claimed Ty had announced the P.E. tush tag was a mistake and thePrincessbears with P.E. tush tags were actually filled with P.V.C. pellets. Another media report claimed aPrincesswith the P.E. tush tag had been tested in a laboratory and found to be filled with P.V.C. pellets. We have not seen any documented copies of the alleged laboratory test results.
Conflicting theories and information
The initial presumption that the P.E. tush tag was a "mistake" created another rush to purchasePrincessbears with the P.E. tush tag by collectors who specialized in Ty Beanie Baby "errors" or "oddities."
Then another theory surfaced claiming Ty had produced thePrincessbears with the P.V.C. and P.E. tush tags simultaneously in two different Chinese factories. The theory held that aPrincesswith either of the tush tags could be considered a "first edition." There exists no publicly released documentary proof to substantiate the "two factory" theory. By "proof" I mean hard-copy Ty production records, stock inventories or other papers that would provide aPrincesstimeline detailing the first production run in China.
below the rough value guide I am going with style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); border: 0px; margin: 0px 0px 24px; padding: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Georgia, 'Bitstream Charter', serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px;">Princess bear (PE or PVC with no space in poem on swing tag, made in Indonesia or china, has a Pale green stem and white rose with pale yellow stitch) $2000 – $8000
These are valued based on 1-7 on rare signs, with the highest value being an older beanie and mint with mint tag or MWMT:
Cranberry teddy- $800-$2500 Chocolate moose- $400-$2200 Peanut light blue- $400-$2200 The rest of original 9- $500-$2700 Mystic unicorn – $350-$2100 Inch worm – $500-$2700 Very limited edition Teddy’s $800-$2500 All other Teddy’s (stand up) 1993-1998 -$500-$2700 All bears (laying down on belly)- $150-$500 Birds-$75-$150
Now of course it majorly depends on how much people are willing to pay.
There are under 100, if even 50 styles of beanie babies that have all these qualities, above are some of them.
Keep in mind that these values are based on 1 through 7 on rare signs list above. If they do not comply with rare signs 1-7, all retired beanie babies are worth between $1.00-$25.00 per Beanie Baby.
A massed produced Princess Beanie Baby is worth $1-$25
An unnumbered Princess bear (PE or PVC with no space in poem on swing tag, made in Indonesia $2000-$5000….. Today’s retail value $$75-$275 PVC being the most valuable Indonesian princess.
Now you are the expert! Go out and get them!
