To mark the US presidential campaign, Ty Warner founder and chairman of Ty, has designed two new Teeny Tys, giving Americans the chance to ‘vote’ for their favourite.

The two limited edition Teeny Tys represent the symbolic Republican elephant and Democratic donkey, with traits of each presidential nominee.

Both plush also feature red, white and blue sparkle eyes, and encourage customers to remember to vote on November 8th.

“Americans of all ages can make their choice for president in more than one way this election season with our special edition Teeny Tys,” said Warner.

“We hope these latest additions to the Beanie Babies family will bring laughter and joy to Americans of all political stripes and remind citizens of their duty to vote this fall."

Each of the Tys will be available from September for a limited time, and will cost fans $3.99.
