This is the third version of America. The first was blue in color and the second was white. Profits from the sale of red America were donated to each buyer's local Red Cross (probably based on the zip code provided online at the time of purchase).

Some red America bears were randomly shipped from the Ty online store with their ears reversed. The red version of America was sold out at the online Ty Store on March 31, 2002.

There are five other versions of America.
    America (blue), style 4506
    America (blue with swing tag in Japanese), style 4506
