Yeti Freddie born early 2014

Yeti freddie was born early 2014 during a winter period. But most likely not a very cold one considering Freddie is from Atlanta, Georgia. Not know for those cold winter nights…. MailChimp was working on a surprise giveaway to make their giveaway actions a bit more fun then normal. You can read about this campaign over here. But you are probably more interested in the story behind Yeti Freddie….

 

 

Yeti Freddie 1st version

Yeti Freddie 1st version with hart.

So the first appearance was early 2014 most likely somewhere between february 2014 and march 2014. There where 5000 pieces created, until that moment only Classic Freddie was roaming the globe in a higher volume.

Yeti Freddie is also the only Freddie that we know for certain exists in more then 1 version. The first one was born with a small hart on the back. The later version was with a snow flake. This was part of the replay all giveaway. It might be that some people received the version with the hart during the giveaway and not with the snow flake.

The packaging of both versions was different, the first version was send out in a white box with big the words: yeti freddie. Later version came in the known diamond designed box. This was without the scratch sticker that gave you a smell. Also this version came without a card (just like classic freddie) later releases of other freddies came with a card.

We expect that there are about 1500 freddies released during the reply all giveaway but we are not sure. Meaning it could be a combination of the first 5000 + 1500 or just the 1500. Who knows, Freddie is traveling the globe and we have yet to see him on the artic. Anyone out there?
