I have always wanted to collect beanie
babies but before my parents have said that they will just hang around
my room and be junk like all my other stuffed animals and I told them that
they were different, but they wouldn't let me and Clara collect beanie
babies. Finally in January '98 they let us buy a couple for suveneres when
we went on vacation. After that we caught beanie fever.
Now I have 48 Ty beanie babies, 5 non-Tys, 3Ty plush and 17 teenie beanies. (all 15 '98s AND 5 '97s.) My favorite beanie is Erin.
