Ty Grace the Praying Bunny
Advantages: Beautiful toy, lovely poem
When I was 16 my Mam took me away to Oasis for my birthday, Oasis was very similar to the likes of Centre Parcs is now. Within the site there was a shop which sold Ty beanie babies which I personally had never seen before and neither had my Mam, there was an offer on that if you bought six beanies you could buy the sought after Britannia Bear. In the time we were on the site I must have been in the shop 30-40 times and eventually my Mam gave in and let me choose six beanies plus bought me the Britannia Bear.
Ty Warner Inc created the Beanie Babies in 1993 and to begin with there were only 9 animals created. The babies ceased to be produced in 1999 and finished with The End bear which I though was a shame as I had not long started my collection. The beanie babies were relaunched in 2000 with The Beginning bear and the company changed it's name to TY Inc. The relaunch also saw a revamped heart shaped tag and Grace is one of the beanies from after the year 2000 so the tag has a holographic star on it with 2000 written across in yellow.
My grandmother bought me this particular beanie for Easter in 2000 when she had not long been released. Grace is a delightful little rabbit who is sitting in the praying position, she has large floppy ears and is sitting with her eyes closed. Grace is pale yellow in colour but the colour is a mix of a couple of different shades of yellow and white so her fur is a lovely mix of colour when you look closely. Grace has a small white tag on her bum with a holographic sign to show she is genuine, her name is written underneath in red and the tag also tells you she contains polyester fiber and P.E pellets.
Grace has a red heart tag like all the beanie babies do, if you want to have a resale value at a later time these tags must be kept in perfect condition and a tag protector may be useful. Graces tag tells you that she was born on February 10th 2000 and she has the following rhyme
"Please watch over me night and day,
When I sleep and when I pray,
Keep me safe from up above,
With special blessings of your love!"
If you are giving this toy top a small child then you should remove the tag first, the tag also tells you that this toy was handmade in china and that the toy is surface washable.
Grace was a beautiful addition to my collection and I think the poem she contains is really lovely especially when given as a present to somebody. Her fur is very soft to the touch so she is lovely for a young child to cuddle up to and she has a cute little tail on her back end. My daughter likes to sit with her and stroke her ears when she is felling tired. A lovely looking beanie baby any child would love and cherish.
Summary: A lovely gift from my Grandma
