12/10/99 ASSOCIATED PRESS RELEASE

Ty Inc. has several federal trademark applications pending, for names such as E Babies, Bean E Buddy and Bean E Baby. One self-professed Beanie expert said their retirement has caused ``unfounded worries'' in the collectibles marketplace. Mary Beth Sobolewski, editor-in-chief of Mary Beth's Bean Bag World magazine, based in the Chicago suburb Bannockburn, said she expects a Beanie successor that will be ``slightly smaller and something more counterfeit proof,'' adding that the company has had a problem with counterfeits. Beanie Babies come in a variety of animal forms. They all have distinctive heart-shaped Beanie name tags.
