This is the 1997 Stinger, the scorpion Beanie Baby. It was born September 29, 1997. It is long retired. It is brown velour with 10 legs and curled tail.
All my beanie babies are authentic, purchased from Hallmark stores and undisplayed and unplayed with. They have been stored in Space Bags for years. All tags are intact. They were purchased in Canada and have the required bilingual tags.
