I don't even cut them off, I just pull them off.

I carefully removed some of my originals but put most back on and when I find a way will get the rest back on (lost the plastic things). I decided that I like it better with them on.

That is, I'm talking about the information cards. And I keep the cards on my shelf for visitors to read.
The cloth tags will stay on till they come off by themselves! (Contributes to "teddy" feel and tells arts/humanities friends what the heck these funny dolls represent

I figured that is what you meant, taking off the cloth tags would be mutilation .

I don't like taking the info tags off but while trying to cut off an extra tag the store had put on, I accidentally snipped off flesh eating disease info tag, but I've kept it close by.

Since most of mine are attached to the wall my guests won't be picking them up, even if they weren't though most of my guests have heard me talk about them and so either have seen them or know what they are when they do for the first time. I think they look good with the tags still attached, only reason I had taken them off in the past was because I was concerned that my neice would get ahold of them and rip them off, didn't happen since I kept them all hidden away until I moved but didn't want to risk it!
