Small Heart Tush Tag

1986 2nd RUN
OPEN HEART
SMALL HEART
SOLID HEART

The small heart tush tag run are identifiable by their vertical styled tush tags which unlike most 1987 tush tags, the heart is the same size as the 1986 2nd run tush tag heart. See above the horizontal styled 1986 second run tush tag, the small heart tush tag (1987), the regular sized heart “OPEN HEART” (1987-1990) tush tag, and the “SOLID HEART” (1991-1994) tush tag. 

This group was released right after the second run of 1986 cats.  An early order form for second run 1986 cats and dogs suggests these were offered as write in orders. The small heart series was never officially featured on any flyer or catalog known to date.

 

These were released mid year 1987 and were Tys first plush beyond the 1986 long haired cats and dogs.

 

Fritz and Lovie are not pictured in this side laying variation.

CINNAMON

Not pictured Blackie as he was was released and retired with no stitched mouth, the exception being he had a white stitched mouth during one production cycle, the ground nutshell shipment.

87 plush with 88 tags

These are very early examples shortly after the 1987 small heart tush tag series. These are identifiable by their 1988 dated tush tag which seemed to coincide with the January 1988 catalog. These styles match those found in the 1988 catalog however Jake Jr. was already renamed Jake in the catalog and “BEANIE” the bear was renamed “BEANIE BEAR”  Examples should include Angel, Peaches, Smokey, Ginger, Licorice, Al E. Kat, Shadow, Charlie, Fritz, Max, Super Max, Beanie Bear, McGee, Snowball, Blackie, Arnold, Mischief, Jake Junior, Super Jake and Lovie.
