In case you missed the 1990s, Beanie Babies were a hot collectible item. In the decades since their glory days, Ty Inc. has churned out several iterations of the plastic bean-stuffed plush toys.
The latest, Peek-A-Boos, are the first Ty product to get a TV spot in the company's 29-year-long run. The commercial by Leo Burnett Chicago debuts on Black Friday.
The Peek-A-Boo toys are updated for kids with smartphones, with the toy acting as a smartphone stand and phone cleaner.
