Significant People in Beanie Baby History

Beanie Babies and other Ty product lines might never have become as popular as they were without a dedicated consumer base spearheaded by media influencers. These collectors and self-made Beanie Baby experts started and continually facilitated what became the "Beanie Baby Craze."

They accomplished this feat through the use of Internet information sites; informational books and magazines about Ty products (especially the Beanie Babies); periodically published value guides and Ty collectors' clubs.
