Advice: Plushies

Hello all!

This time I am not posting bad news but looking for advice from the plush makers in the community.

I have been making plushies for friends and family for a little while and feel I am getting confident enough to start trying to sell them. Now I am not going to be doing custom pieces, but just already made items.

Now my question is that I am planning on making some dragon plushes, but the design is inspired by the Beanie Babie dragons (rounded nose, brontosaurus body, felt toes, etc). I am making my own pattern but I didn't know if theses similarities would get me into trouble?

I wouldn't be using the same colors or selling them as Beanie Babies, but I just want to be sure.
