Just the Basics

There are several different versions of Disney Beanies, This Page was mainly designed to simplify and help determine the differences between the original versions and the versions currently available. It is a shortened version, just to explain the BASIC differences. I don't get into UPC codes, the different manufacturers or the several different current versions. 
Update
Thanks to Michelle for pointing out that this chart is NOT accurate.
PLUTO was one of the Original 13, NOT DONALD.
Which proves my point, as to the confusion of Disney Beanies.
After further research, I have come up with a small history which
might explain my error. 
The original "test market" mini bean bags started in up to 
30 Disney Stores (with Disney Store tags) and 
included 11 "test market" mini bean bags.
Dalmatian(101),Dopey,Eeyore,Flounder,Goofy,Piglet
Pluto, Sebastian, Tigger and Winnie the Pooh.
Shortly after they added Mickey and Minnie 
Next Disneyland Theme Park, California introduced 
11 "test market" bean bags.
Dalamation(101),Dopey,Eeyore,Goofy,Grumpy,
Mickey, Minnie Piglet, Pluto,Tigger,Winnie the Pooh.
And later added DONALD.(12th)
Donald was not at the Disney Stores.
And Disneyland did not have Flounder and Sebastian.
A full launch began September 1997
