 Item Description


Original 1997 First Edition Princess Diana Beanie Baby

 Important info: From the Ty corporation info

Here is the the portion of the corporation info in the above referenced link that states that they began with PVC pellets about the 3rd paragraph down


 "By the early 1990s, the Ty catalog featured several under-stuffed, floppy animals, most in the $10 to $20 price range. But Warner was thinking smaller. He wanted to create a quality stuffed toy in the $5 range--something that a child could afford to buy with allowance money. The result was the Beanie Baby, a $5, pocket-sized toy made of polyester plush and loosely filled with PVC pellets. Warner introduced the first nine Beanie Babies at a Chicago toy trade show in 1993. Each of the nine toys came with a short poem and its own name--Spot the Dog, Squealer the Pig, Patti the Platypus, Cubbie the Bear, Chocolate the Moose, Pinchers the Lobster, Splash the Whale, Legs the Frog, and Flash the Dolphin".

About this beanie baby:


This item has been kept with a plastic tag protector and in a plastic case since we bought it. We recently organized a few things and found hundreds of beanie babies (My daughters went a little overboard with them in the 90s). I traveled for business and always had the opportunity to buy them in more remote places.


Measures 9" tall


Released in 1997


Includes plastic tag protector and plastic case.

What makes it the first edition (we know this can be very confusing to sort it all out)?


  Made with P.V.C. which stands for polyvinylchloride


  Only 12 Beanie Baby Princesses were released to each vendor initially, but this changed due to strong demand (First edition have P.V.C. pellets & Made in China)


 In 1998, Ty stopped using P.V.C. pellets in favour of using P.E. pellets as these were considered to be more environmentally friendly.


  • Bright green stem (later editions different shades)


*We noticed  there is misinformation regarding what makes the Princess Diana beanie baby first edition.


  • P.V.C.(1st edition) versues P.E. pellets (later edition)   


We provided you with some links to clarify the difference and explain first edition versus the later editions. This link we put on top as well because it is so important!






Diana, Princess of Wales died on August 31, 1997. Warner announced the Beanie Baby Princess on October 29, 1997 in honor of Princess Diana. Warner said that all proceeds would be donated to the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund. The Princess Diana Beanie Baby was sent to vendors to distribute in the second week of December 1997. Some vendors had to wait until February 1998. Only 12 Beanie Baby Princesses were released to each vendor initially, but this changed due to strong demand
