About David

Hi folks! I’m glad that part of your Ty Teenie Beanie Boo experience includes TeenieBoos.com, a site created exclusively for the 2014 and 2017 Happy Meal promotions.

mug-david2My name is David Vogel. I own a graphic design studio (Vogel Design) in central Kansas, where I live with my beautiful wife and our baby daugher. I am a writer and  a lifelong collector of the Ty product lines. I’ve also been a long-time member of the online Beanie collector community: I was active on the AboutBeanies.com message boards, ran my own Beanie Baby news site called Cyber Beanie in the early 2000s, and later operated a website dedicated exclusively to Peace the bear, Peace Mania. During the 2009 Teenie Beanie Baby 2.0 Happy Meal promotion I jumped back into the scene to run a news and rumors blog similar to this one, and then in 2014 began this website to cover the 2014 Teenie Beanie Boo promotion.

I’m excited to be back, and can’t wait to hear from fellow collectors who are excited to relive a bit of the excitement of the 1990s Beanie craze! Maybe we’ll bump into each other at a McDonald’s. Let the hunt begin!
