Here is an article about Alyson Hannigan's passion.
Oh, Baby! Alyson Hannigan amassed 46 beanie babies in just under two years. That's practically a new baby every other week! The 23 - year old actress, who plays Willow on "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," knew her habit had become serious when she almost dove in front of a little kid to snatch up Bongo, a Beanie monkey. "I was like, 'What am I gonna do?' " says Alyson. "Luckily, she grabbed something else." Kind fans have sent her critters to add to her collection., and when Alyson was in the hospital last year to have her tonsils removed, Buffy star Sarah - Michelle Gellar gave her a Beanie Bear. Alyson's current dilemma: where to house her growing brood. "I have to keep them out of reach of my dog," she says. "He would love to take their heads off."
