Rebecca

Rebecca was released on 12/15/1994 for the 1995 attic treasures collection. 

Rebecca was first released with the Error tag noting “The Beanie Babies Collection” and 

Emily’s first issue, “Emily with big feet” came with a version 2 tush tag and Korea hang tag. This version is styled in three variations. 

 

1)Emily with green neck bow is considerably rare. Its existence was highly anticipated due to the catalog photo above. 

 

2)Emily with a green floral head bow, the most common

 

3)Emily with no head bow in a burgundy floral dress, significantly rare but not as rare as Emily with green neck bow

 

Many collectors anticipated for Emily to exist with a Hong Kong hang tag since this version of Nola does. I believe since there are earlier versions of Nola, many Hong Kong Nola tags were printed which took several shipments to issue those original tags. I would assume Digby, Nola, Gilbert White and Henry Brown began production earlier at about the same time based on their tush tags and all come with Hong Kong tags and 1A tush tags. Emily, Pouncer, Whiskers, Nicholas, Morgan and Squeaky were produced later, all Issued with similar tush tags but none with 1A tush tags or Hong Kong hang tags.

Emily’s second issue, “Emily with green floral head bow and small feet”, comes with a version 3 tush tag and Korea hang tag.  Emily’s feet on this example are dark brown like prior versions. Note the smaller font on this version of version 3 tush tag and the head bow is centered on its head.

Emily’s third issue, “Emily with green floral head bow and small feet”, comes with a version 3 tush tag and Korea hang tag.  Emily’s feet on this example are dark brown still. Note the larger font on this version of version 3 tush tag and the head bow stitched just in front of her right ear.

Emily’s third issue, “Emily with green floral head bow and small feet”, comes with a version 3 tush tag and Korea hang tag.  Emily’s feet on this example are now light brown. Note the larger font on this version of version 3 tush tag and the head bow stitched just in front of her right ear.

This Emily is the same as the one just above but has light material only on the left arm and right foot, I would consider this just a transitional piece between batches of paw fabric. 

Variation of paw pads, first Emily with teal ribbon, Emily with head bow big feet x2, Emily with centered headbow small feet, and Emily with side headbow small feet.
