TY Valentino Beanie Baby RETIRED w/P. This is a first gen RARE Beanie Baby. The originals were made with the PVC pellets NOT the PE Pellets. The pellet issue helps to define which came first. Stands for Polyvinyl-chloride & P. Ty stopped using P. Pellets in favor of using P. As these were considered to be more environmentally friendly. Pellets tend to be rarer & therefore more valuable. The information is vital to the truth about the extreme rarity. Of the real #1 P. There would never be P. Beanies of any kind. If Ty wasn’t forced by Green Peace to change over from P. The only thing that matters is what is on the Tush Tag and Hang tags. Do A Google search and you will find that TY was going to be sued. This is in Mint condition and comes in a plastic case. This Beanie Baby has Multiple ERRORS. Off Center Brown Nose and black eyes (Nose and Eyes are all supposed to be black). Tush Tag has year 1993 but swing tag has DOB of 1994. Swing tag Shows DOB spelled out February 14, 1994 instead of 2-14-1994. There is a semi colon with an extra space after it instead of a colon. (should be a colon). The swing tag yellow star on front- “original” is misspelled and on the back- “Suface” is misspelled. The tush tag says- Oakbrook IL, (comma after the IL is incorrect). The addresses on the swing tag are USA, Canada, and Europe no U. Tush tag line reads 1965(KR) which means it was part of the Korean Market. Tush tag DOES not have a “Red stamped” number on it as I’ve seen on others, it does have what looks like an grey or black 8 (not stamped) on the interior of the tush tag. (red numbers were added when mass production started). Can’t get a picture of it.. Extra space on tush tag between Handmade & in where it says Handmade in China. I have done research on this item and it has ALL the mistakes for an original production 1st edition series beanie Baby. I also was able to compare this Valentino BB to another one I have which HAS NO ERRORS and the PE pellets not the PVC. So I know this is the multiple errors Valentino BB with PVC pellets. Item is in as perfect condition as the day it was bought, It has been stored in the case since it was bought. The swing tag is in perfect condition with no bends or creases, stains or anything else. It has a plastic swing tag cover. The entire piece is a bright white with bright red bow tie and heart. You will be pleased with this item.
