      Good quality, long lasting soft toy

      When I was around nine or ten, my Mum would take me to a local card and gift shop every fortnight to choose a new beanie baby, which were very popular at the time. I amassed an enormous collection but lost interest and they all got shoved into a box and were kept in my mum's garage. As I've recently moved in with Marc, my boyfriend, I had to sort through all of my things and decide what to take. This is when I came across my old beanie baby collection and the memories of childhood came flooding back.

      Amber the Cat was one of my first beanie babies and I remember choosing this one as it resembled Bobby, a cat we'd had for a few years but she sadly died. This particular beanie baby is not available for purchase in-store anymore but it is widely available on the internet on websites such as gift shops, and eBay is a good place to find beanie babies too. I have no idea how much money my mum paid for Amber the Cat back then (around ten years ago), but the current price for a brand new one on Amazon ranges from £4 to £8, which I think is reasonable.

      Amber the Cat is a ginger and cream tabby cat. She was 'born' on the 21st February 1999. The detailing on the teddy to make it look as 'realistic' and cat-like as possible are all there - pointed ears, a rather stubby tail, two thread whiskers on each side of her little pink nose and of course big, pretty black and yellow glass eyes. The toy is quite small at around nine inches high but this is a good size for younger children as they'll be able to easily hold it.

      Amber the Cat is very soft to the touch as she is a plush toy, and even after the amount of time I have had it the fur has not matted. The toy has tiny beans inside which I remember finding very fun as a child and the beans also help keep the toy in position when sat on a shelf. The toy can be washed if need be, and I would reccomend hand washing it.

      Like all TY beanie babies, Amber comes with a heart shaped tag on her ear. This tag shows that the teddy is authentic and it also has a little message inside which helps the owner get to know the teddies 'personality' which encourages a child to be imaginative - I loved the poems as a child and it really helped me to become fond of the teddies. Amber's poem describes the life of an average cat really - nocturnal, playful etc. The poem is as follows:

      Sleeping all day and up all night,
      Waiting to pounce and give you a fright,
      She means no harm, just playing a game,
      She's very loveable and quite tame.

      This overall is a good quality and extremely durable toy - I have had it for absolute years and it is in amazing condition. The toy would be best suited to young children (although bare in mind it is not suitable for children under 36 months), cat lovers or soft toy/beanie baby collectors. I overall reccomend this toy and am sad to see it go as it does hold a lot of memories for me but I will be giving it to charity along with the rest of my beanie babies as I am sure there is someone out there who will get a lot more use out of it than me.

        A lovely pussy cat

        When I turned 16 I went away to Oasis with my Mam and my Grandma, none of us had ever heard of Benaie Babies at this point however there was a lovely little shop selling them and I loved them at first sight.

        Beanie Babies were cvreated by Ty and they ended in the series in 1999 with The End bear however according to Ty due to public outcry they relaunched beanie babies with a new company name and a new hang tag logo and started over again with The Beginning Bear.

        Amber is a lovely little pussy cat, she is a ginger stripey cat with dark ginger and a light ginger colour mixed in and she has the same light ginger colour on her paws. Tha cat has a lovely littl face with pointed ears, dark yellow beaded eyes and little pieces of pink thread for the whiskers. I think this cat is really cute and she sits nicely next to Silver the cat who is basically the same but in grey colours instead of ginger.

        The inside of the beanie is partly stuffing and partly beads which are PE Pellets and it gives the beanie a lovely soft feel but means you can also manipulate the cat when you put her for display. The cat is soft enough to be able to give it to a young child to sleep with and my daughter is forever trying to steal my beanies to sit on her bed, if you are going to give these to a child however you should remove the hang tag.

        Every beanie babay has a hang tag haging from it's ear and it gives you a little poem about the beanie and their date of birth this ones date of birth is 21st February 1999 and the poem is,
        Sleeping all day and up all night,
        Waiting to pounce and give you a fright,
        She means no harm. just playing a game,
        She's very loveable and quite tame.

        I think this is a lovely soft toy, she is well worththe £5 paid for her and she is a lovely gift although I think a little girl would apprieciate her more than a boy.
