Beanie Babies are no longer illegal immigrants.
The maker of the much sought-after toys, Ty Inc., agreed Friday to allow international travelers to bring up to 30 of the stuffed animals into the country. The previous limit was one."I'm glad they loosened their grip on them," said U.S. Customs Supervisor Bill Timothy in Port Huron, where the Blue Water Bridge links Michigan to Canada. "It makes our job easier."
Until this week, border inspectors had to tell people carrying too many Beanies from Canada to either return them or turn them over.
Customs has already seized thousands of undeclared Beanie Babies. They will probably be burned, said Pat Jones, a Customs Service spokesman in Washington.
