I've recently moved house and, whilst unpacking one of the hundreds of boxes I brought with me, found to my surprise that this little TY Beanie Celebrations Bear was amongst the things I intend to sell on eBay. To be honest neither myself nor my two grown-up daughters remember us buying this, strange really as we used to collect beanies quite seriously and for a particular reason.
He is very sweet however -
- none of us like the bright orange fur
- we aren't Royalists in our family and this TY Celebration bear was produced to commemorate the Queen's Golden Jubilee
Hence it is bit of a mystery of how he arrived in our possession.... but I am sure someone will appreciate him more which is why I am putting up for auction.
Like all beanie bears he has a cute face with a 'glass' effect nose and eyes. He boasts a regal purple ribbon around his neck and he has a machine-embroidered design with a crown and the words 'The Queen's Golden Jubilee 2002' forming a circle as shown in the Dooyoo picture. The bear itself is made from a velvety type of fabric which is very soft and tactile and he is filled with those famous beans.
The all-important tag states the following -
'Celebrations' 50th anniversary, June 3, 2002.
Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, celebrates her Golden Jubilee this year making her the fifth-longest reigning monarch.
This is the only time I ever remember reading a tag which does not have a poem?
I have kept quite a few of our few TY bears because of special memories but this one, in our opinion, isn't a favourite but may be a good one for collectors? I DO hope he sells and is appreciated more by his new owner?
