Valentino II

Tush Date
Tush Tag Numbers
Valentino II
03 23

When comparing the 30th anniversary beanies, all have a lot of variability in the shape and proportions of their head, face & ears.  Some of these differences might align with the tush tag numbers which would, in my opinion, designate them as a version.  For now, with the limited examples I have,  I will note what I can see. 

Two versions of Valentino II are distinguishable and so far can be identified by the tush tag number change. 


Tush tag # 100578 below has a lighter red heart with slightly different stitching. The ears seem to be a bit bigger. The stitch on the bow is just to the right, the ® symbol after “The Beanie Babies Collection ®” is very slightly smaller.

Tush tag # 17179 above has a darker red heart with slightly different stitching. The ears seem to be a bit smaller. The stitch on the bow is centered, the ® symbol after “The Beanie Babies Collection ®” is very slightly larger.

Below another view to compare.

Here is the catalog of all versions of Valentino II based on the minor tag variations.

News of the new re-release of the “30th anniversary beanies” started slow at the beginning of 2023.  There was mentions of something exclusive at the gift show and the new catalog notes on a random page “BEANIE BABIES ARE BACK”.

The first flyer surfaced after the gift show, the first flyer on the left.
