    I sell them in my shop. They are really popular. Did you have a particular question?

    Can you get special dates or is that too hard?
    I would like to get some but the years are 1983 & 86

    5 new Beanies are released on the 1st of every month. Then they are randomly retired. Some quicker than others. The only way to get the ones from those dates it to try ebay. Sorry. That's the beauty of the way this company markets their product. The Beanies become really hard to find and actually quite valuable. Good Luck with your search and sorry I couldn't help.

    My DD has over a hundred of the little things. She has a couple of mutations too still with the little bags they came in.

    She has a couple that she plays with and the rest sit on a shelf in her room.
