Advantages: Cute and cuddly - inexpensive these days.
---Why I Bought It---
I had one of these praying beanies in a bundle of different beanies I bought off Ebay.
I found it so cute I bought some more as gifts.
A Beanie Baby is a stuffed animal, made by Ty Warner Inc, later renamed as Ty Inc. in late 1993.
Ty stopped producing the product in 1999; but demand led them to reconsider.
In 2000, a Beanie Baby named "The Beginning" was introduced to remind people of Beanie Babies' comeback. (Wikipedia)
About 5.5 inches tall.
This little bunny has slightly mottled yellow fur with cream paws, ears and nose.
The beanie is in a praying position with its paws together and its eyes closed.
it has a little pink nose and whiskers and a cute little tail.
---Beanie Bear Information---
Style Number 4274

Ty Beanies also have 'Hope' which is a similar praying beanie but this time is a chocolate coloured bear - I do not know of any other praying beanies.
As this bear is one of the 'retired' beanies the cost is hard to determine.
Currently it can be picked up fon Ebay from between £2 to £11.50.
I only buy mine when they are either in a job lot of are around £1-2.
An integral part for collectors was to keep the tags of these stuffed animals in immaculate condition.
There were two tags - one was the 'swing tag' - a heart shaped cardboard tag attached to its ear and a fabric 'tush tag' sewn into its base somewhere.
You were able to buy plastic heart shaped transparent covers for the 'swing tags' to stop them getting scuffed and damaged.
As soon as I saw this praying bunny I thought it was just so cute - especially with its lovely little poem. I went searching for more of these praying beanies - but I only found this bunny and the praying bear called 'Hope'.
As with other beanies they have the soft fur fabric and bean/pellet fillings.
What set them both apart is that they are kneeling and have their eyes closed - quite unusual for a stuffed toy I would think.
I bought both the bunny and the bear as gifts for my two nieces who were having their Confirmation and Communion.
However the bunny is not a religious item and can be given to anyone as a thoughtful gift - how lovely to have a little praying bunny by your bed!
Although Ty seem to have done thousands of different beanies I find these the most unusual and unique.
Would make a great Christening present as well - rather than the standard silver items.
---Would I Recommend?---
Summary: Cute collectables - even better when bought as a bargain.
