The 9-30-98 Beanie® Releases Poem and Birthdays

Beak™ the Kiwi

Born 2-3-98

Isn't this just the funniest bird?

When we saw her, we said "how absurd"

Looks aren't everything, this we know

Her love for you, she's sure to show!

Canyon™ the mountain lion

Born 5-29-98

I climb the rocks and run really fast

Try to catch me, it's a blast

Through the mountains, I used to roam

Now in your room, I'll call it home!

Halo™ the angel

Born 8-31-98

When you sleep, I'm always here

Don't be afraid, I am near

Watching over you with lots of love

Your guardian angel from up above!

Loosy™ the goose

Born 3-29-98

A tale has been told

Of a goose that laid gold

But try as she might

Loosy's eggs are just white!

Pumkin™ the pumpkin

Born 10-31-98

Ghosts and goblins are out tonight

Witches try hard to cause fright

This little pumpkin is very sweet

He only wants to trick or treat!

Roam™ the buffalo

Born 9-27-98

Once roaming wild on the American land

Tall and strong, wooly and grand

So rare and special is this guy

Find him quickly, he's quite a buy!

Santa™ the jolly elf

Born 12-6-98

Known by all in his suit of red

Piles of presents on his sled

Generous and giving, he birngs us joy

Peace and love, plus this special toy!

Scorch™ the dragon

Born 7-31-98

A magical mystery with glowing wings

Made by wizards and other things

Known to breathe fire with lots of smoke

Scorch is really a friendly ol' bloke!

1998 Holiday Teddy™

Born 12-25-98

Dressed in his PJ's, and ready for bed

Hugs given, good nights said

This little Beanie will stay close at night

Ready for a hug at first morning light!

Zero™ the penguin

Born 1-2-98

Penguins love the ice and snow

Playing in weather twenty below

Antarctica is where I love to be

Splashing in the cold, cold sea!
