A stuffed toy shaped like a lima bean but pale-peach colored (they were all caucasian; at least, in Connecticut they were), with arms and legs and a printed-on face. I think they had striped legs, like they were wearing socks. They were about 6" tall.

I don't remember the toys, but my sister had a folder and other school supplies for 3rd grade, about 1984

The ones I remember were china ornaments and you can find a lot of these for sale on Ebay! They are collectors items now.

I remember a board book about Human Beans. They were part of a family where they shared and took care of each other. Ie. On the swing "I'll push you if you push me". That is all I remember. It was one of my favourites, and I would love to find it again!

My dad started calling me bean cause he got me an "easter beanie" when I was born. Cutest thing ever! Tattoo on butt like cabbage patch kids but said "I am a human bean"

Just found three Human Bean mugs (copyright 1981) at a Salvation Army in Asbury Park, NJ last week. Only bought two that say "I'm a Great Human Bean" on them for 50¢ each. Left the third mug that said "Grandpas are special Human Beans"

So glad someone else remembers the Human Beans. My husband thinks I'm crazy. I had a couple shirts with the different colored, 3/4-length sleeves with Beans on the front. Loved them.

I remember the cute little sayings more than I do the characters, but I think I recall a bean shaped person with only a couple of hairs sprouting out of their cute heads......What were all the cute sayings?
