This is the first version of America. All profits from the sale of the blue America were donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund for 9/11.

On September 28, 2001, a Ty-signed blue America was listed on eBay by a Ty employee to raise money for the American Red Cross. The auction ended on October 5, 2001 with a high bid of $24,000. The winning bid was submitted by eBay user Ryebypost from the UK.

There are five other versions of America.
    America (blue with swing tag in Japanese), style 4506
    America (red with blue right ear), style 4412
    America (red with blue left ear), style 4412
