In the 1990's we became aware, like a lot of people, about Beanie Babies. My daughter loved them and so we bought her a few to play with.We still have them in November 2020 but the ones she played with have all had their tags cut off. They are still in good condition beause she looked after them. While we were buying those for playing with, the collector in me bought a few more which we kept in good order along with their tags. They were for the most part kept in plastic boxes made for Beanie Babies and made their way into the depths of the attic. I had cause to venture into those dark recesses and came across them again. They have been in the dark and away from any light sources so they have not faded or deteriorated.Twenty odd years later they still appeal and in order to keep themin good order I have taken photographs of the 'babies' and their swing tags and they will be put away again. I do have my 'museum' room which has no windows so they might find a permanent display space where they can be seen by us without having to clamber amongst the other boxes of collectables, and without being faded by sunlight. The played with ones will now stay out for my grandsons to play with when they come around, and we'll see if they get looked after like they did by their mum...
