Raicho (mottled top, Glory, Japan exclusive, medium)
SWING TAG (inside)
1. Raicho (mottled top) was produced in several different sizes. They are all labeled by Ty as "Beanie Babies." This is unusual because Ty plush items larger than the traditional Beanie Baby size are normally tagged as Beanie Buddies or Ty Classics.
2. "Raicho" is the Japanese word for (Lagopus muta) "rock ptarmigan." It is also the word for "Thunderbird/lightning." The Beanie Baby "Raicho" is a rock ptarmigan, not the mythical Thunderbird.
