Ran into Patti one day while walking
Believe me she wouldn’t stop talking
Listened and listened to her speak
That would explain the extra large beak!

To learn more about Beanie tags


Patti comes in two primary colors – fuchsia and raspberry. Each color is further divided into two shades – Deep Fuchsia and Fuchsia (for fuchsia) and Raspberry and Magenta/Maroon (for raspberry), making a total of four colors. The Deep Fuchsia shade has a slightly darker look due to its velvety texture, while the Fuchsia shade has a brighter appearance as its fabric lies flat and reflects more light. On the other hand, Deep Fuchsia’s velvety fabric reflects less light, giving it a deeper hue with no sheen.


The first generation of Patti has a beak that is shaped like a spoon, while all subsequent generations have a beak with a more angular shape.

Patti the Platypus was released as part of the “original 9” Beanie Babies, along with Spot, Squealer, Brownie, Chocolate, Legs, Flash, Splash, and Pinchers.
