Teddy the Bear was introduced on 25th June 1994. It was produced in six different colours (brown, jade, cranberry, magenta, violet and teal) and had two different varieties of face, and old face and a new face. The brown old face version is now one of the most valuable and sought after Beanie Babies available and fetches a high price when sold. It is made from a medium brown material with black button eyes and a black button nose. It was retired on 7th January 1995.
