ATTIC HANG TAGS

The Complete Analysis of Attic Treasure Hang Tags

1st Generation

This is the first generation Attic Treasure Hang Tag

“Printed in Hong Kong”

This is the first generation Attic Treasure Hang Tag

“Printed in Korea”

 

This tag was produced from late 1992 to Late 1993. The larger sized Attics seemed to continue with this hang tag a little latter as they were ordered in multiples of  6 instead of 12. Attics that were primarily released with this tag but also Korean tags: Clifford, Digby, Nola, and Tyler.

The “Printed in Korea” 1st generation hang tag was produced from late 1993 to Late 1994. The larger sized Attics seemed to continue with this hang tag a little latter as they were ordered in multiples of  6 instead of 12. Attics released in 1994 seem to skip 2nd generation as they were still using up stock from this tag

2nd generation

The 2nd gen. hang tag first arrived incorrectly titled 

“The Beanie Babies Collection”

The 2nd gen. hang tag then corrected to

“The Attic Treasures Collection”

This example with a UK sticker.

The 2nd generation hang tag was produced starting in mid to late 1994.  This would coincide with the 2nd gen Beanie Baby hang tag. 

2nd gen can be paired with 1992 Surface washable tush tags, 1993 tush tags, and Canadian tush tags.  An occasional Jeremy and  Mason have been found with 2nd gen tush tags.

Attics listed on the 1995 order form but do not seem to exist in 2nd gen: Clifford, Digby*, Emily*, Gilbert, Henry, Morgan, Nicholas, Pouncer, Reggie, Squeaky, and Whiskers.  I believe this was due large attics sold in sets of 6 instead of 12 or they were late 1993 releases leaving plenty of 1st gen tags in stock to make it through the production of 2nd gen.  You might think they transitioned too quickly to 3rd gen however most of these Attic Treasures do not exist in 3rd generation except for Emily, and Pouncer. Most of these Atic treasures seemed ended up becoming recycled and con be found with tacked on tush tags: Digby*, Emily*, Gilbert, Henry, Morgan, Nicholas, Pouncer, Reggie, Squeaky, and Whiskers. Also seen Nola, Murphy

3rd Generation

The 3rd generation hang tag.

This 3rd gen tag has a UK sticker.

 

The 3rd generation hang tag was produced in early 1995.  This would coincide with the 3rd gen Beanie Baby hang tag with similar markings.

3rd gen can be paired with 1992 Surface washable tush tags, 1993 tush tags, second generation tush tags, and Canadian tush tags.  Abby, Grover and Oscar have also been noted with a version 1B 1992 “All Rights Reserved” tush tag.

Attics listed on the 1995 order form but do not seem to exist in 3rd gen: Digby, Gilbert, Henry, Morgan, Nicholas, Pouncer, Reggie, Squeaky, and Whiskers.  I believe this was due large attics sold in sets of 6 instead of 12 or they were late 1993 releases leaving plenty of 1st gen tags in stock to make it through the production of 2nd gen.  You might think they transitioned too quickly to 3rd gen however most of these Attic Treasures do not exist in 3rd generation except for Emily, and Pouncer.

4th generation

The 4th generation hang tag now branding Attic Treasures as “Ty Collectibles”

The 4th generation hang tag was produced in early 1996.  This would coincide with the 3rd gen Beanie Baby hang tag with similar markings.

4th gen can be paired with 1992 Surface washable tush tags, 1993 tush tags, second generation tush tags, and Canadian tush tags.

4th gen Attics with second generation tush tags: Digby, Emily, Fraser, Grover Gold, Jeremy, Mason, Nola, Rebecca, Sara.

5th Generation

The 5th generation hang tag continues to brand Attic Treasures as “Ty Collectibles”. This tag was produced while Attic treasures were still being produced with bows and no clothing was issued yet.

I refer to this first run as “5th gen 36CE” as it mentions “children under 36 months” with the “CE”

I refer to this 2nd run as “ChildCE” as it mentions “before giving this item to a child” with the “CE”

I refer to this3rnd run as “Child” as it mentions “before giving this item to a child” without the “CE”

Attic Treasures beyond the point of the black and white satin tush tags and this red and white tush tag generally retain very little value, usually less than $5 and often sell in lots for less then $1. 

These tags mirror the transition of Beanie 3rd gen to 4th gen

I refer to this first run as 5th gen “SAFETY PRECAUTION” Waterloo tag since the second address is now moved from Waterloo to Fareham.

6th Generation

The 6th generation hand tag transitions to the style of 5th generation Beanie Baby hang tags with comic sans font.

This style of 6th gen was released on McKenzie and Jack leading into 7th gen.
