From Yahoo News-Mary Beth Sobolewski, editor in chief of Mary Beth's Bean Bag World Monthly, forecast strong collector interest in the new three-size Beanie Buddies announced by Ty® Inc.'s website and predicted new Beanie Babies® will be unveiled at gift shows this week.  Sobolewski said the new large, extra large and jumbo Beanie Buddies displayed on the website are the ``biggest news'' of the 71 new plush toys disclosed by Ty on Tuesday. The site showed three sizes of a new multi-colored bear named Peace, two sizes of a bunny named Hippie, and 26 other new Beanie Buddies. ``Assuming that Ty is going to offer three sizes throughout the line, that's big news to the collector community,'' said Sobolewski.

Beanies win big in the new millennium ..but were you really surprised????
The Ty websites newflash says:
(quote) I would like to thank everyone who participated in the Beanie Babies Ballot. We hope you have enjoyed the excitement of this event. Your vote in this "first of its kind" worldwide poll has made a difference to children all over the world and has helped a wonderful organization. Best wishes for this new millennium and continue to. . . Expect The Unexpected! Ty Warner (unquote) Unexpected?? Who is he trying to kid?
 
 

Skeptics had suspected that Ty Warner planned all along to continue Beanies in some form. Warner has, after all, expanded his factories and has several trademark applications pending for Beanies with new names. "It's the spirit of P.T. Barnum still alive," toy analyst Chris Byrne said when the vote was announced. "How do you milk even more publicity out of a 4-inch stuffed toy?" read the whole story
 
 
 

What were the reactions of collectors regarding the charge to place a vote?-The Suntimes ask MaryBeth Sobolewski-. Amid some initial negativity from collectors (confused about the 50-cent-per-vote charge) indicating that Ty Warner should "put his money where his mouth is," the mysterious Warner placed a statement on his Web site accepting the challenge. "I have been reading your posts. I have heard your challenge.
"I will, therefore, present the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation with an amount that is TRIPLE the amount raised by your voting.
In a statement, Paul Glaser, chairman of the Board of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, thanked Ty Inc. and Beanie Baby lovers worldwide for their overwhelming care and generosity.
