The names chosen for the
Attic Treasures are almost always unique, but there have been thirty-eight
names that were either borrowed from another Ty line, or later used on a
product in a different line. Of the thirty-eight, only three names were used
on two different products concurrently. Max is an Attic Treasures tabby cat,
style number 6246, and a Classic Schnauzer, style number 2036. Both styles
were introduced in August of 2000. Additionally, two of the original
birthday Beanie bears, April and May, were available for a portion of the
time that April and May, the two Attic bunnies introduced in January 2001,
were current products.
The name Tulip was first
given to a Plush pig introduced in 1996 and retired in 1998. In the 1998 Ty
catalog, Shelby, the Attic Treasure bunny introduced in 1995, was pictured
as Tulip, style #6024. In May 2002, a 1998 flyer surfaced which pictured
Rose as Tulip, style #6078, indicating that the name of Tulip was originally
intended for Rose. Although no Shelby or Rose with a Tulip tag has ever been
confirmed, two other Attic pieces, Nicholas and Prince, have been discovered
with a sixth generation Tulip hang tag.
Within the Attic Treasures
line, only one name was reused for two totally different styled Attics.
Malcolm, style number 6026, is an auburn-colored 12-inch bear available with
second, third, fourth, and fifth generation hang tags. He initially sported
only a navy blue neck ribbon, and was later produced with a blue knit
sweater with red and white stripes. On April 20, 1999, Malcolm, style number
6112, was introduced. He is a brown 13-inch bear wearing a red palace
guard’s uniform, and was produced only in the seventh generation.
