  • Durability:

Pros:Fur on hump and tail, nice face, does not spit.

Cons:It's a camel.

The Bottom Line: For .99 cents, it was a complete steal.





There's a local thrift store that gets a lot of 'odd' donations; they have several outside bins that people drop things off in 24 hours a day. Every once in a while they call me letting me know that they got Lego pieces or sets in but I try to stop by every week or so to drop things off and scope out the goods. I saw a small bag of Ty Beanie Babies on the counter and thought, "Now, who would get rid of perfectly good Beanies?" but didn't hesitate when I saw them priced at .99 cents. These are in mint condition, with tags and completely clean. The only thing "wrong" is that there is a price tag on the Ty tag but it is easily removed.

I never knew that there was a Niles, I knew of Humphrey The Camel but never bought one when it was in release. Niles is a one hump camel done in a caramel brown with fur on the hump and tail. It is a flat pose with pellets in all four of the legs as well as the stomach area. There is no way to get it to stand up because of the way that the legs are formed on the body. To me this looks like a younger camel because of the look on the face and the small ears. His tag is n the left ear and has a tag that reads: "The desert is a dry hot land, filled with lots and lots of sand, but I can still have so much fun, as long as we play in the sun!" According to the tag he was 'born' on February 1, 2000.

Along with the Ty tag on the ear, there is also a 'tush tag' with his name and a hologram Beanie Baby sticker. The front part of the red heart tag also has "2000" on it, this matches up with the design on the hologram sticker. There is a good bit of stitched detail to the feet and the head but it's the soft fluffy fur on the hump and tail that give it an adorable look. There's no visible mouth but the eyes are large plastic black pieces so this is something that you are going to want to be careful with around younger kids. The nostrils are interesting; they are actual pieces of triangle shaped fabric sewn into the body so it isn't something that was stitched on top of something else. His tail isn't long but the tuft of soft fun on the end of it gives it a nice appearance.

Considering that this is almost twelve years old, it is in immaculate condition. I didn't really need it as I don't collect camels but for .99 cents I couldn't pass it up. I am hoping to find him a good home with someone who collects Ty Beanies or someone that has a thing for camels. Hey, even camels need love. He is a decent size [about six inches long minus the tail] and the design and color make it super cute. This is recommended for kids ages three and older but because of the extra fur I wouldn't recommend it for kids under five because of the possibility of them chewing on the fur and getting it stuck in their mouth. I've never had any problems with the eyes coming loose but because there are plastic pieces to this you are going to want to use caution with younger kids if they are 'biters'.

The photo shown here doesn't do him justice. He really is a lot cuter than this picture. He has a smooth design to him and as mentioned, he looks like a younger camel than an older or adult version.
