ONLY 1st editions were filled and tagged with the rare PVC PELLETS. This version is the hardest to find because Ty ceased using PVC pellets so there are far fewer of these than any other version.In early January 1998 Ty Inc began talks with Greenpeace to cease usage of PVC pellets and begin using PE pellets. This corresponds with the Princess timeline. Greenpeace protested at the New York Toy Fair to halt the usage of PVC in childrens toys, and they announced that Ty Inc would be using PE Pellets for all future products. Greenpeace had commissioned a study of PVC ending in late 1997 and Ty Inc listened to their findings. The PVC pellet-filled, made in China, with no spaces on the swing tag, are the rarest & absolute original first editions. PE was NOT the first version of pellets, PVC was as PE pellets werent used in any Beanie baby until 1998 AFTER Ty Inc had talks with Greenpeace. ALL Princess Beanie Babies have the year 1997 on their tush tags. The date on the tush tag is the date the name is copyrighted, NOT the date the Beanie baby was produced. The date never changes, even on Beanie Babies that are produced for years. Only PVC tagged are the First Editions made. Greenpeace did not sue Ty. As a leader in the toy industry, Greenpeace approached. Ty worked with Greenpeace on a solution.
