When the 5th generation Beanie Baby swing tags were introduced in 1998, some had
spelling errors. On the front of the swing tag (inside the yellow star),
"ORIGINAL" was misspelled "ORIGIINAL" and on the back of the swing tag, "Surface
Wash" was misspelled "Suface Wash."
The spelling errors were eventually corrected, and in the meantime, Ty placed a
sticker on the back of the swing tags with the correct spelling of "Surface
Wash." This spelling error was made on early 5th generation swing tags belonging
