For the reason that Beanies are not filled with Styrofoam pellets, Beanies are poseable little critters. Ty® Beanie Babies®’ Seamore is one of a series of the decidedly distinguishable, iconic plush seal figures presented by the Ty Company.

Seamore is a sassy, little girl with inquisitive eyes sweet expression and joyous demeanor.


I never know what to expect, but am frequently surprised and delighted when entering our local jumble shops. I find a fair share of Beanie’s hang tags in place, clean and unsullied available at minimal cost. Seamore seemed to be waiting just for me, she caught my eye immediately and appeared to smile as I placed her in my basket.

Plush is cushy, seams are nicely sewn, eyes are glossy, stable, poly, well attached and secure.

Subsequent to the 1993 beginning, Ty Inc has fashioned nearly 400 diverse Beanie Babies in variable sizes from the minute softies appearing as a McDonald’s happy meal toys, to Beanie Buddies as larger sizes of traditional Beanies measuring about 8 inches., Ballz, Bow Wow Beanies, and Ty Girlz all have their own fan bases.


If purchasing at yard sales, jumble shop, garage sales and the like; be sure to always check to assure that the Trademark Ty Beanie, heart shaped tag is in place to guarantee purchase is a genuine Ty product.

I have been a sporadic collector for many years, and to be very frank am glad that I held off until recently to become more collection minded, the Beanies I might have paid many dollars for a few years ago I am finding in mint to near mint condition at a dollar or little more and my collection is growing nicely.

My individual introduction to the world of Beanies® began in 1996 when long lines of adults could be seen lengthening across the cafe and out the door, and at times, down the sidewalk of local McDonald’s® eateries.
