SWING TAG PHRASE (inside right)
Gobbles the BEANIE BABY
had several different types of waddles,
including single and double felt !

There are two variations of Gobbles, commonly referred to as "tail down" and "tail up." The only difference between the two variations appears to be the position on its back where the tail is attached.

The photos below show obvious examples of the two variations. An examination of several other Gobbles Buddies revealed the tail attached at various heights between the two positions shown in the photos. That makes it difficult to determine which version they might be.

We also found a Gobbles with the top of his tail fastened (sewn) to the back of his neck causing it to display permanently in the raised position. We are searching for information that would indicate whether or not this was the real "tail up" version.
