      Another cute Ty Beanie

      Fridge the Ty Beanie Polar Bear is a lovely cool white shaded plush bear.
      He is both soft and cuddly and has a nice feel about him. He can be made to look as though he is either standing or sitting down and has a lovely face with black beady eyes and a matching black nose.

      He has cute but small ears set to the sides of his head and has a nice open face. Fridge can be surface washable if he gets in to any scrapes, but a complete wash is not recommended for him.

      *********************************************************
      Fridge is one of the Ty Beanie Babies that have over the course of the last 2 decades, taken the soft toy world by storm! The original group of 9 plush animal babies were all premiered to the world at the New York Toy Fair.

      The famous 9 are now highly valued and if you have any amongst your collection, be sure to keep him/ her in tip top shape as a collector would be more than willing to part with their cash to get one of the fabled group!


      Some Ty Beanies are of course more highly prized than others. When Sakura the Bear, made for the collectors of Japan, was on sale, the bear was exported to various countries and sold by secondary retailers for £110 each! Which people happily paid. Little did they realize, that the extortionate prices they had paid, would eventually be massively reduced when the next collecting craze caught hold.

      **********************************************************
      We bought Fridge the Polar Bear, to add to our 'hug' of Beanies. Fridge was bought for £5.99 at a local toy shop, in mid 2003. £5.99 was considered a very fair price for him at the time, as many of the bears in the range were sold off for much more.

      Our Fridge Polar bear hasn't been played with and many of the Beanie Bears by Ty, will never have been handled much, as they were bought as part of larger collections. Drastic cleaning would devalue Fridge in the eyes of a collector, but of course as a childs toy there is no need to be too precious about him. Fridge is not amongst the most valuable bears made by Ty, USA.

      **********************************************************
      Fridge, like all the Ty Beanies, has a little heart shaped red and white Ty tag in his ear. This tells you his name and date of birth and includes a small poem about Fridge which is typed in the middle of the tag.

      His birthday is in November 2002 according to his tag. He was retired from sale in May 2004 but can still be found online to buy at various retailers like Amazon, specialist Beanie collector sites and also for sale on Ebay.

      He sells for anything upwards from £7.99 to £9.99, so costs only a little more than his original retail price.

      **********************************************************
      Fridge's poem reads as follows:

      Way out among the iceberg caps
      Is where I love to make my naps
      I won't be cold out in the snow
      My coat will keep me warm, you know!


      Each Ty Beanie Baby has its own heart shaped ear tag, showing these details. However, you can also if you wish, buy Fridge his very own beanie passport, so that he can travel with you when you go on holiday!

      *********************************************************
      Fridge the polar bear is a plush childs toy, but he and many of the other beanies are also collected widely. A mint condition beanie for a collector, must be 100% perfect, with the Ty heart shaped ear tag in tip top condition. If you are buying Fridge for a child to play with, then removal of the tag would be safest. A collector would want to keep him 100% original.

      Fridge is a lovely little bear with lots of charm and because he differs slightly from the traditional shaped teddy bear beanies, I think he offers something a bit different. So I am awarding him 5 stars for being a stand out bear!
