Gift puts Children’s Museum in Beanie Baby heaven

Thanks to local toy lover and collector Anna Rua, the Boca Raton Children’s Museum has a wealth of Beanie Babies. 

Rua, who has been collecting the handmade stuffed animals since the collectibles came out in 1993, donated more than 100 Beanie Babies, as well as other toys, to the museum this fall.

Beanie Babies are stuffed animals made by Ty Inc. 

Nine Beanies were released the first year and now there are more than 500. They became collectibles in 1995.

“The first time I saw this museum I was completely blown away,” Rua said. “I couldn’t do enough for the children.”
