Bright Green Stem White Rose. Red & White PVC Tush Tag with Red Star. IMPORTANT: PVC pellets were the first pellets! They were replaced with PE pellets.
Therefore the PVC Tush Tags were created first & were the first Princess Beanie Babies made. Sellers with PE tush tags are incorrect.

The world to share, to give, to reach. PRINCESS DIANA BEANIE BABY BEAR HISTORY.
THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH & NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH. Ty Beanie Baby'Princess' the bear was announced on October 1997 & issued in December 1997 as a charity release for the Princess Diana of Wales Memorial Fund. All of Ty Inc's profits from the bear were donated to the fund. The Princess Beanie Baby was retired on April 13, 1999. PVC PELLETS VS PE PELLETS.The pellet issue helps to define which came first. Stands for Polyvinyl-chloride & P. Ty stopped using PVC pellets in favor of using PE pellets as these were considered to be more environmentally friendly. Beanies with PVC pellets tend to be more rare & therefore more valuable. PVC WAS INVENTED FIRST DUH! Please read all the PD Beanie Baby History information on this post. The information is vital to the truth about the extreme rarity of the real #1 PVC's. There would never be PE Beanies of any kind if Ty wasn't forced by Green Peace to change over from PVC to PE!!! The only thing that matter's is what is on the Tush Tag, not some bogus CIA/FBI test to see what the Beanies are filled with.
BRIGHT GREEN STEM VS PALE GREEN STEM. The bright green stems are on the first two editions. The pale green stems are on the later editions of the Princess Beanie Babies. SIX EDITIONS WERE RELEASED IN THIS ORDER.
The Edition PICs are a Historical Timeline Reference.. #1 FIRST EDITION SWING TAG & CHINA PVC TUSH TAG. In December 1997 the PE pellets replaced the PVC pellets.
The second edition PE Tush Tag was created. The PVC Tush Tag came first & the PE Tush Tag came second. The Beanie Vendors received both PVC & PE bears for sale at the same time in January 1998. Ty knew that the PVC Princess Beanie Bear was so rare that they only allowed one PVC Bear 1st Edition to be included with eleven PE Bear 2nd Editions for each Beanie Vendor to sell.
That's why there are so many PE Bears for sale & only a handful of PVC Bears for investment. #2 SECOND EDITION SWING TAG & CHINA PE TUSH TAG.#3 THIRD EDITION SWING TAG & INDONESIA PVC TUSH TAG. #4 FOURTH EDITION SWING TAG & INDONESIA PE TUSH TAG.
Top of PE Tush Tag says Handmade In Indonesia. #5 FIFTH EDITION SWING TAG & CHINA PE TUSH TAG. The Swing Tag on the right side has a double space above Diana, Princess Of Wales Memorial Fund. This double space appears on all Fifth Editions. The Fifth Edition was the issue that started the mass production.
These 5th Editions do not have the dreaded stamped numbers which denote assembly line or factory control numbers. #6 SIX EDITION SAME AS THE 5TH EDITION SWING TAG.& CHINA PE TUSH TAG RETIRED 1999. WITH COMMON STAMPED FACTORY NUMBERS.
The 40 million mass produced 6th Edition Tush Tags contain an oval & number stamped in red or pink on the inside of the loop. There were several different numbers denoting different assembly lines or factory control numbers. BEWARE OF THE TUSH TAGS WITH STAMPED NUMBERS. Princess Diana Beanie Baby Bears with a number inside the Tush Tags are the worthless mass produced bears that exceed 40 million made!PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED BY GREEDY SELLERS giving false information about these bears. The stamped numbers inside these tush tags represent Factory Control Numbers or Assembly Line Numbers & NOTHING ELSE. THERE WAS NEVER A FIRST EDITION BEANIE EVER MADE WITH A STAMPED NUMBER THAT MEANT IT WAS A NUMBERED EDITION BEANIE!! AND the stamped worthless Princess Diana Beanie Baby Bear will also have the Heart/Swing tag with the very noticeable double split in the paragraph above Diana, Princess Of Wales Memorial Fund, like the 5th Edition PD Beanie Bear.
DENOTING THIS IS THE DREADED 6TH EDITION BEAR WITH A STAMPED FACTORY ASSEMBLY LINE NUMBER!! NUMBERS DENOTING MASS PRODUCED PD BEANIE BABIES.
