Gigi is but one in my vast collection of Ty Beanie Babies. She is one of the older toys, having been made in 1998 (or at least mine was) and is a black Poodle complete with little red bows on her ears! This particular beanie is able to stand very easily and is filled with the usual mix of beans and stuffing.
Gigi has been made to look like she has been clipped, her back is short, smooth plush whilst her belly, legs, paws and the rest of her has a sort of curly, fleecy feel to it. The only way I can describe it is the texture of lambs wool, though the material used is 100% polyester. She has round, glossy, black eyes and a little black nose - her nose is very life like and detailed with the rough texture to that of a real dog.
She comes with the regular Ty tag and a delightful little poem that adds to the cuteness of these toys. Each beanie has their own unique birthday, name and poem, it's these little touches that make Ty stand out from the rest of the soft toy manufacturers. If you're looking to start up your own collection then now would be the time to do it as beanies are very cheap at the moment, you can pick them up for a penny on Amazon! With postage this makes them cost around £2.75, an absolute bargain for such a well made item.
Gigi is an absolutely gorgeous little girl, I recommend that you buy her now - you won't be disapointed.
