The 4th series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies has now been announced!

August 18th, 2023 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

Great news! We now know who is in the fourth set of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

Yet again, they will be available to find at local retailers in the USA and UK….and here they are below!

Zip II

Zip II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Zip II made his appearance in the third set in the UK. Now he will be available in the fourth series of Beanies.

He looks identical in nearly every way to the original Zip (white paws variation), except for the addition of a white tail tip.

His Birthday has moved from the 28th March to 28th June, but his poem remains unchanged.

Nanook II

Nanook II 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies

Nanook II is one of the new designs this month!

Based on the original Nanook, who was one of the cutest little husky Beanie Babies (in my opinion), he is set to be a favourite this month!

I’m not sure on a Birthday for him just yet, but I’m guessing based on previous Beanies that his poem will remain the same as the original, shown below.

Nanook is a dog that loves cold weather
To him a sled is light as a feather
Over the snow and through the slush
He runs at hearing the cry of “mush!”

I can’t wait to get this little guy and I currently have him on preorder for when he arrives!

Blue Teddy II

Blue Teddy II is the new bear addition available this month for the USA.

So far, the picture above is all that I can find on him. As you can see, he is a beautiful bright blue colour with a pastel rainbow ribbon.

So far, I’m uncertain if he will have a poem or birth date yet, but I will update his page when I get more details on him.

I’m not quite sure why he’s called “Blue Teddy II” however, as there wasn’t a “Blue Teddy” to begin with! I’m guessing they’re just sticking with them all having “II” at the end of their name.

Signature Bear II

Signature Bear II 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies

Signature Bear II was available in the third set last month for the USA. However, he will now be available in the fourth set in the UK this time.

Inside his hang tag, he is named Signature Bear 2023.

He is a gorgeous lime green colour with a bright red ribbon, and of course, the signature Ty heart on his chest.

My thoughts…

The fourth series looks amazing!

I’m really looking forward to getting Nanook II as I loved the original Beanie Baby version of him!

However, I’m a little disappointed this month that the UK only have two Beanies in the fourth series (Nanook II and Signature Bear II) instead of the three that the USA will be getting (Nanook II, Blue Teddy II and Zip II).

Have you heard? The new Halloween 2023 Beanie Boos have been revealed!

August 10th, 2023 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

More exciting news from Ty! We are currently awaiting the announcement for the next series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies. However, this year’s Halloween Beanie Boos have been announced for 2023!

There will be four new Beanie Boos available and they are freakily adorable!

See below for the new Halloween Beanie Boos!


Mumford the Mummy Halloween Beanie Boo 2023

I can’t quite decide if Mumford is a mummy or a ghost. He wears bandages like a mummy, but has the shape of a ghost!

He is so adorable though, and made more so by the cute little spider pet he carries round with him! I love that his poem is all about his little arachnid friend too.

He is one of my favourite Halloween Beanie Boos this year!


Nightcap the Ghost Halloween Beanie Boo 2023

This is the second ghostly friend available this year!

Nightcap wears a large pointed, striped hat and he has a cute little gold tooth. His entire body is covered in silver sparkles, adding to his ghostly appearance.

I love his his sparkly orange eyes stand out from the white of his body.


Charlotte the Spider Halloween Beanie Boo 2023

Not to be confused with another Beanie Boo cat called Charlotte.

This eight-legged Charlotte is quite possibly named after the spider character from the book, Charlotte’s Web.

She is very cute (if you’re not arachnophobic) and I love the white detail underneath her eyes and her tiny, sparkly fangs. Her orange and black striped legs look very striking against her black body too.

And finally…


Ophelia the Bat Halloween Beanie Boo 2023

It wouldn’t be a Halloween Beanie Boo launch without a bat Beanie Boo!

Last year, we actually had two bats, Drizella and Mortimer. This time, we only have one but she is one of my favourite bats so far!

Her name is Ophelia and she is so adorable!

I absolutely love how her black, fuzzy body is broken up by the sparkly bright blue of her inner ears, her glittery green eyes and her bright red feet. Her sparkly black wings with a red spiderweb pattern also make a nice touch.

My thoughts on the 2023 Halloween Beanie Boos…

My favourite of this spooky bunch is probably Ophelia, followed by Mumford. I love Ophelia’s colouration and I think Mumford’s pet spider is so cute!

I’m a little sad that there are no Halloween cat Beanie Boos this year, but there is a good selection and we did have two cats last year, Morticia and Oleander.

The Beanie Bubble Movie is Out! Did it meet up to expectations?

August 6th, 2023 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

As you may be aware, the Beanie Bubble movie is now showing at selected cinemas and available to stream on Apple TV as well as Amazon Prime in the US!

I have now watched it and really enjoyed the movie but can safely say, that this movie is not intended for children.

The movie is based on the book, The Great Beanie Bubble: Mass Delusion and the Dark Side of Cute by Zac Bissonnette. This book is about the rise and fall of the Beanie Baby craze of the 90’s and can be purchased on and

Be aware, this review may contain some spoilers if you haven’t already watched the movie.

The Beanie Bubble (Photo: Apple TV)

(Photo: Apple TV)

What is the movie about?

The Beanie Bubble follows the lives of the three women that helped Ty gain the success he had during the Beanie craze of the 90’s.

Elizabeth Banks plays Robbie Jones, Ty’s business partner. They meet after the death of Ty’s Father and eventually set up Ty Inc. together.

Sarah Snook plays Sheila Harper, Ty’s long term girlfriend. Sheila and her two daughters move in to Ty’s house.

Geraldine Viswanathan plays Maya Kumar, “employee number 12” at Ty Inc. She came up with ideas for the company, such as the poems in hang tags and retiring Beanie Babies to make them more sought after. She also designed (along with her brother) the the first ever website that sold directly to consumers.

The Beanie Bubble is about the rise and fall of the Beanie Babies craze that sent everybody mad.  It is based around how these three women, who played such a huge part in Ty Warner’s life, never got a mention.

Are the events in the movie real?

As with all things in the film industry, not EVERYTHING is exactly how things played out. At the beginning of the movie, it even states “There are parts of the truth you can’t make up. The rest we did”. But from what I’ve learned there are some key events that did really happen.

The truck that overturned at the beginning of the movie sending thousands of Beanie Babies hurtling through the air actually happened. However, in reality it contained McDonald’s Teenie Beanie Babies not Beanie Babies.

Beanie Bubble Movie Truck Crash

(Photo: Apple TV)

McDonald’s really did run out of Teenie Beanie Babies, and one guy actually ordered 100 Happy Meals and told the cashier to “hold the food, just include the Beanies”.

People really were that crazy in the 90’s. I miss those days…

What about the women in the movie? Did they really exist?

Although their names have been changed for the Beanie Bubble movie, they are actually based on real people in Ty’s life.

Robbie Jones

Robbie is based on Ty’s real life former girlfriend, Patricia Roche. She did in fact help set up Ty Inc along with Ty Warner. However, the movie suggested she would never work for him again, but set up her own separate company that would become the exclusive wholesaler of Ty products in the UK. In reality, the didn’t set up a company and accepted Ty’s offer to directly run Ty UK. It was correct that was one of the highest paid executives in the UK though.

Sheila Harper

Sheila is really inspired by Faith McGowan, Ty’s long-term girlfriend. She has two daughters from a pervious relationship, and they all moved into Ty Warner’s house together. This really happened.

It is partially true about the Spooky hang tag name credit change. It is suggested in the movie that Sheila’s daughter came up with the Spooky design. She drew the design on a tablecloth and gave it to Ty and he credited her on the hang tag, saying it was designed by Ava Harper.

Spooky Beanie Baby Ava Harper

(Photo: Apple TV)

Apparently, Ty was having trouble with how the Beanie would fit with the Beanie Babies range. Faith’s daughter, Jenna Boldebuck, drew the design on a paper tablecloth (like in the movie). But instead of handing the drawing to him, Ty tore the sketch off and took it with him.

The original Beanie did indeed have Jenna’s name credited on it, but two months later disappeared.

Maya Kumar

Maya’s real-life inspiration is a woman named Lina Trivedi. In the movie, she came up with the idea of adding a poem and birthday to the hang tags and designed the Beanie Baby website. She even came up with the idea of retiring Beanie Babies.

In reality, she (along with her brother) did in fact design and it really did become the first business to consumer website in the world.

However, she did not come up with the idea of retiring Beanie Babies. That credit goes to the King brothers, who were distributors for Ty Inc.

My thoughts on the movie…

Although, there is quite a lot that is definitely more fiction that fact, I did really enjoy the movie. It brought a sense of nostalgia for the 90’s that I really liked.

There are parts I found a bit cheesy, but overall I thought it was a great insight into the Beanie Baby craze.

I also loved the Beanie Babies that were made specifically for the movie and the crazy, colourful cats that I wish existed.

When I first saw the trailer I wasn’t sure if there would be much about actual Beanie Babies, but some names did have a mention which I was pleased about.

Would I watch it again? Of course I would!

If you would like to read The Great Beanie Bubble book, you can find it on and Amazon UK

The Beanie Bubble is available at selected cinemas, on Apple TV and through Amazon Prime in the US.

My Third Series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies Arrived and They Are My Favourite So Far!

July 28th, 2023 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

I’m so excited to tell you all that my third series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies arrived to my parents’ house from The Magical Gift Boutique and they are quite possibly my favourite series yet!

The third series actually ended up a little different from my previous post (thwarted by Ty yet again! Haha!). I had heard that the Signature Bear II (now named Signature Bear 2023) was going to be in this set, but it looks like this will only be in the US release of the third series.

Instead, the UK version of series 3 includes the three Beanie Babies pictured below.

Series 3 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies. Left to right: Patti II, Peace II and Zip II

From left to right we have Patti II, Peace II and Zip II. I think they are possibly my favourite set so far in all the series of 30th Anniversary Beanies!

Patti II

Patti II Beanie Baby

Patti II is probably my favourite from the new bunch. Her bright orange colouring is really striking against her blue bill and feet. She really feels like an upgrade from the Patti I remember and love from the 90s.

Like all of the new Beanie Babies, her poem remains the same, but her Birthday has changed from 6th January to 6th July.

Patti II Beanie Baby hang tag

Peace II

Peace II Beanie Baby

I love Peace II‘s bright yellow colouring. I’m kind of sad that she is not tie-dyed, because part of the fun of the original Peace bear was finding all different variations in colour. But I’m glad in some ways that they have made her different. However, they have given her a splash of colour with her rainbow-coloured mesh ribbon which is a nice touch. She still retains her multi-coloured “Peace” symbol too.

Her poem remains unchanged but her birth date is now on 1st September instead of 1st February.

Peace II hang tag

Zip II

Zip II Beanie Baby

Zip II is probably the most unchanged Beanie Baby out of all the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies released so far.

Everything about him is the same as the original Zip, even down to the green and black eyes and white paws. The only difference being made from a softer fabric. I actually loved the original Zip and he was one of my favourite old-style cats (along with Prance and Chip). Part of me kind of wishes Ty had made a few changes, but then I’m not sure if I would have liked him as much.

His birth date has changed from 28th March to 28th June, but he has the same poem as the original.

Zip II Beanie Baby hang tag

My thoughts…

As I stated above, this is my favourite series so far of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies. I ADORE Patti II’s orange and blue colouring and Peace II’s bright sunny yellow body.

I’m torn between wishing Zip II had some differences from the original and actually really loving the nostalgic vibe from him being a softer upgrade. I think I probably wouldn’t have been as happy if he was a different colour because I would be thinking “That’s not Zip!”.

I’m really glad they included an old-style cat this time though. As some of you may already know, I’m a bit of a cat lover so I had a big smile when I saw Zip II was going to be included in the UK series 3 set.

Series 3 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies Announced!

July 12th, 2023 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

Great news! The third series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies have been announced!

Again, we see a set of three previously released Beanie Babies made with much softer fur and a few colour changes.

And here they are!

From the rumours I’ve heard, Snort II will be available to the US market, whereas the UK will get Peace II instead.

The two new Beanie Babies to join the gang will be Signature Bear II and Patti II.

Signature Bear II

So far I’ve not managed to gain any information on a birth date or poem for the Signature Bear II.

From the picture, he appears to be a vivid bright green with a red ribbon and the red heart with Ty Warner’s signature seen on previous Signature bears.

Patti II

Patti II Beanie Baby

I’m really excited about this new version of Patti!

She was one of my favourite Beanie Babies, so seeing this amazing change in colour is great news! I love the bright tangerine orange of her body against her azure blue beak and feet.

I’ve made a calculated guess that her poem will be the same as the original, based on others in the 30th Anniversary range, but currently I’m not sure what her birth date will be.

My thoughts…

My favourite Beanie Baby in this latest series is definitely Patti!

I’m a little disappointed that there are only two new designs, but I’ll be happy if Peace II comes to the UK!

Series 2 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

July 7th, 2023 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

I’ve been away on holiday for a few days, so I’ve only just managed to get round to posting these up. At the moment, these little beauties are at my parents’ house as I am currently staying over in Bulgaria. However, my Dad (thanks again!) has sent me a few photos to look at before I get back to the UK.

Here they are…the second series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

30th Anniversary Beanie Babies. Left to right: Peanut II, Squealer II and Snort II

The second series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies includes Peanut II, Squealer II and Snort II.

Is it just me being nostalgic, or are the new Beanie Babies getting better with every new series?

I loved it when the 90’s Beanie Babies came out in crazy colours (I’m thinking of such Beanies as Patti, Inch and Chocolate) and I’m hoping we see more of these (watch this space…).

Peanut II Beanie Baby Hang Tag

The outer hang tag remains unchanged from the first series from what I can see from Peanut II’s tag (pictured above).

Take a look inside the hang tags…

Like the first series, the inner hang tag includes the same poem as the original Peanut, but the birth date has changed from 25th January 1995 to 25th April.

Peanut II inside hang tag

The birth date inside Squealer II’s hang tag has changed from 23rd April 1993 on the original Squealer’s tag to 23rd September. The poem remains the same.

Squealer II inside hang tag

And finally, Snort II’s birth date is now on 15th August instead of the original 15th May 1995.

So far, I don’t have the Peace II bear (hopefully that will change soon…). At first, he was thought to be a USA exclusive and Snort II a UK exclusive. However, this appears not to be the case as I have heard they are staggering the releases, with Peace II as part of the UK third series and Snort II as part of series 3 in the USA.

Left to right: Peanut II, Squealer II and Snort II

I ordered the third series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies from The Magical Gift Boutique in the UK, who once again have provided a fantastic service. Thank you!

My thoughts on series 3 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies…

I’m loving this new series as they are so bright and colourful! I love the bright purple of Peanut II, the addition of the lilac ears and tail to Squealer II and the red and yellow combination on Snort II.

I’m hoping we see more colourful additions!

A Beanie Baby Movie?!…Almost….

June 26th, 2023 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

We have seen many exciting new releases recently with the 30th Anniversary “Original” Beanie Babies. So far, there have been seven released (Valentino II, Bones II, Bongo II, Peanut II, Squealer II, Snort II and Peace II) with more Beanies to follow (stay tuned!).

Following on from the 90’s nostalgia is the announcement of a new Beanie Baby movie! Well….almost.

The movie focuses on the owner, Ty Warner (played by Zach Galifianakis), and the three women he collaborated with to create the most successful toy craze the world has known.

Elizabeth Banks stars as Ty’s business partner, Robbie, and Sarah Snook plays the part of Sheila Warner. The movie also stars Geraldine Viswanathan as Ty inc. employee, Maya.

It kind of makes Ty look like the Willy Wonka of the plush world, with plenty of eccentricity and colour.

The only thing that worries me is the lack of Beanies in the trailer. There are some, mainly cats and others that fly out in a truck crash briefly seen in the trailer.

The Beanie Bubble movie

(Photo: Apple TV)

A whopping 10,000 Beanies had to be created from scratch as the movie-makers only had permission to use the heart tag.

My thoughts on The Beanie Bubble movie…

The movie trailer actually looks pretty cool, so I’m really hoping this movie will live up to expectations.

The Beanie Bubble has plenty of colour and a lot of 90s nostalgia from the original Beanie Babies craze. I’m not certain how much of the movie is accurate, as I’m sure I read that Ty Warner never married (correct me if I’m wrong).

I’m just really hoping that we will see plenty of Beanie Babies featured in the movie, albeit Beanies that don’t exist.

When will the movie be released?

The Beanie Bubble is due to be released in select cinemas from 21st July 2023 and will be available to stream on Apple TV+ from 28th July 2023.

They arrived! First look at the brand new “Original” Beanie Babies!

June 19th, 2023 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

I’m so excited to say that the first series of the new 30th Anniversary edition “Original” Beanie Babies have arrived!

To be completely honest, I don’t exactly have them in my hands just yet as I am currently in Bulgaria. I had them sent to my parents in the UK where they are now sitting awaiting my return. My lovely father (thank you Dad!) sent me pictures of them for me to post up here before I get to see them in the flesh.

And here they are!

From left to right: Valentino II, Bones II and Bongo II Beanie Babies

From left to right we have Valentino II, Bones II and Bongo II.

Aren’t they just adorable! I’m glad I managed to get hold of them before they all disappear as each retailer that stocks them has been limited to 24 of each design!

Below is a view of the back of each of them.

From left to right: Bongo II, Bones II and Valentino II

They look just like fluffier, more up-to-date versions of the Original Beanie Babies I loved back in the 90s.

I have also been reliably informed that they are indeed very soft and fluffy.

New updated hang tags with a nostalgic feel!

Bones II outer hang tag

The hang tag resembles an updated version of the 5th generation tag, with a slightly different font and the text “BEANIE” and “BABY” gently curves around the word “ORIGINAL”.

Bongo II inside hang tag

The inside of Bongo II’s hang tag keeps the original poem, but his Birthday has now changed to 4th January.

The same has happened with Valentino II who now has a birth date of 6th February.

Valentino II inside hang tag

Bones II is also the same, with a poem identical to the original, but his birth date has now changed to 18th March.

Bones II inside hang tag

I can’t wait to see them for myself, but I’m so grateful to be able to take a look at them before I get back to the UK!

More new Original Beanie Babies to be released!

June 12th, 2023 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

Following the huge success of the 30th Anniversary Original Beanie Babies, Ty have announced a further four Beanie Babies!

The first series consisted of redesigned versions of the Beanie Babies, Valentino, Bones and Bongo. The new versions are named Valentino II, Bongo II and Bones II.

They have now been officially retired by Ty on 2nd June 2023, although I have heard they can still be found in small retailers/candy stores.

They have proven to be incredibly popular, so Ty have now announced the release of a second series!

There will be four different designs in this set, again based on previous Beanie Babies, but who knows? If they are as popular as the first series was, maybe we could see some brand new designs (I hope so!).

The four Beanies announced so far are Snort II, Squealer II, Peanut II and Peace II. They are based on Snort, Squealer, Peanut and Peace respectively.

Snort II

Snort II is very similar to the original Snort design. However, he is made from a much softer, plush material and his hooves, snout and horns are yellow rather than cream coloured.

Squealer II

Squealer II is pale pink with a violet-blue snout, ears and curly tail. His design is not that different to the original version, but for some reason the violet colour change makes him look so much different.

Peanut II

Peanut II is very different in colour from the original. Saying that, Peanut was originally released in royal blue before her light blue colour. I really like her new fuchsia pink-purple colour.

Peace II

Peace II is very different to the original tie dyed Peace. He is a bright yellow colour instead and wears a rainbow ribbon. He still has the signature peace symbol embroidered on to his chest.

My thoughts on series II…

I’m really excited that Ty have decided to release a second series of the new Original Beanie Babies. Peace II and Peanut II are probably my favourites in the new series. However, I really hope that we see some brand new designs and that this will become the start of a new range of the older style Beanie Babies!

The Original Beanie Babies are Back!

May 28th, 2023 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

I have some exciting news for you all…the Original Beanie Babies are back!

Ty have released three new “original” style Beanie Babies to mark the 30th Anniversary of Beanie Babies! They are essentially re-designed versions of previous older generation Beanie Babies that you will no doubt all be familiar with but with slight differences and made from a much softer material.

Bongo II

Bongo II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

The first of these is Bongo II. He is based on the original Bongo with a brown tail and even shares the same poem:

Bongo the monkey lives in a tree
The happiest monkey you’ll ever see
In his spare time he plays the guitar
One of these days he will be a big star!

However, his Birthday is different and on 4th January instead of 17th August.

Bones II

Bones II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Bones II is a lighter, caramel brown version of the original Bones. They are very similar in appearance but this version has very soft fur.

His poem is:

Bones is a dog that loves to chew
Chairs and tables and a smelly old shoe
You’re so destructive all would shout
That stopped, when his teeth fell out!

His Birthday is on 18th March instead of the original Bones’ Birthday of 18th January.

Valentino II

Valentino II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Valentino II is perhaps the most different from his original counterpart. The original Valentino was a white colour with a red ribbon and heart, but this has been changed to a bright red with a white ribbon.

Valentino II’s Birthday has been changed from 14th February to 6th February.

His poem however remains unchanged and is as follows:

His heart is red and full of love
He cares for you so give him a hug
Keep him close when feeling blue
Feel the love he has for you!

Where will the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies be available?

So far, Ty have stated that these will only be available in limited supply from selected small retailers. Each retailer will only receive 24 of each Beanie Baby and when they’re gone, they’re gone!

My thoughts on the new “original” Beanie Babies

As a child, I collected the original Beanie Babies back in the 90’s, so I’m extremely excited that I will hopefully be getting my hands on them all!

They have a nostalgic vibe about them but with the modern twist of being made with a softer material.

I am hoping that this is a sign that Ty will bring back the original Beanie Babies, and not only occasional/commemorative releases. I would love to see them re-release older Beanie Babies, for example, the Original Nine and maybe some of the cats (I’m thinking Chip or Prance!), but I would also love to see some new designs too!

All of this is just speculation though.

What do you think? Will Ty bring back the original Beanie Babies product line? Or is this just a one-off release?
