New small size Squish a Boos!

December 3rd, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

Ty have now released a new size of Squish a Boo!

There are nine new Squish a Boos available in the brand new small size and they are all an adorable, pocket-sized 4″ tall!

The new Squish a Boos available in the small size are Bamboo, Kiki, Giselle, Fantasia, Pinky, Slush, Heather, Dotty and brand new Squish a Boo design, Rosette (pictured below).

From the stock images, the small size of Squish a Boos appear to have solid, glittery button eyes instead of the faux leather/fabric eyes of the larger Squish a Boos.

I’ve spent today updating the Squish a Boos section of the website to include the new designs and have changed the size description in their names accordingly, so that they are now described as small, medium and large size Squish a Boos. I have also added any Squish a Boos that I had left out. Please let me know if I’ve missed any out.

Do you have any of the small Squish a Boos in your collection?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Plymouth Beanie Baby

Hi everyone!

I would like to wish a very Happy Thanksgiving to all my Beanie friends who are celebrating today!

I’m thankful for everyone for taking the time to get involved on the website. It means the world to me that people find the site useful and I hope it continues to be a resource for tracking your Beanie collection.

Pictured above is one of my favourite Thanksgiving Beanies. His name is Plymouth and he carries a tiny “turkey” in his paws. How cute it that?!

Below, the Ty Store exclusive, Turk-e is celebrating Thanksgiving with Roam.

Have a terrific day today and Happy Collecting!

What new Beanie Boo animals would YOU like to see?

November 19th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

It’s a sunny Friday afternoon here at Beaniepedia HQ today. A few of the new Beanie Babies and Beanie Boos have now been released, although we’re still waiting on the newly designed, “sitting” Beanie Babies.

I’m currently waiting on a few of the newer Beanies to arrive as there have been problems with shipments to the UK, so hopefully I’ll get my hands on them soon and I’ll review them when I get them.

Since it’s a little quiet with regards to any new Beanie news, I thought I’d ask you all what type of animal that hasn’t currently been released would YOU like to see as a Beanie Boo? This is just for fun and I have no influence over what Beanie Boos Ty will make next, but it’s always fun to dream.

I’ll start with my top 5 Beanie Boo animals that I would love to see in reality.

1. Dinosaur

I would love, love, LOVE to see a dinosaur Beanie Boo. Either a T-Rex, a Stegosaurus or a Triceratops, although I’m open to any dinosaur. I know, there are already Flippables Dinosaurs, like Tremor, but I would love a non-sequin dino!

2. Mallard Duck

We have had plenty of Easter chicks that could POTENTIALLY be a duck, but I would really like to see a mallard duck, a bit like the Jake Beanie Baby from 1998 but in Beanie Boo form.

3. Mole

One animal that Ty haven’t really explored is a mole. There is currently only ONE Ty mole called Digby who was part of the Wild Wild Best collection.

4. Pangolin

These weirdly cute little creatures are almost never made into plush toys. They remind me a little of Sandshrew from Pokemon and I would love to see one made into a Beanie Boo. The closest that Ty have ever released in Tank the armadillo, who is very cute, but is not a pangolin.

And finally…

5. Buffalo

As you may already know, one of my favourite Beanie Babies is Roam the Buffalo, who has been on many travels with me around Europe and continues to be my mascot. I would absolutely love a buffalo Beanie Boo friend for him.

Karma Chameleon!

October 26th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

Halloween is just around the corner and I found a Pumkin’ Beanie Baby on eBay who will become one of my decorations this year!

Yesterday, I also managed to get hold of a Flippable I’ve been wanting to buy for some time!

Meet Karma.

Karma is arguably one of the most colourful Flippables around! Her body is covered in reversible sequins that are all the colours of the rainbow. Check out how pretty they are!

When you flip her sequins the other way, they change to sparkly silver, as shown below. She also has a ridge of sparkly, rainbow coloured spikes running along her back.

Her Birthday is on 19th January and her poem reads as follows:

A true chameleon, my colors do change
Flip my sequins and watch as I rearrange!

Karma’s legs and tail don’t have sequins on them. Instead, they are made from a brightly coloured, rainbow material covered in a shiny scale pattern. What I love the most is Karma’s curled tail.

Karma was released in both a small and medium size.

All about…Claude the Crab

October 18th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

the truth about claude the crab beanie baby

– CLAUDE’S BEANIEPEDIA PAGE CAN BE FOUND HERE –

If you are reading this article, there’s a good chance that you’ve heard all the rumours on the internet that Claude is a “rare Beanie”, made even rarer if it has so-called “tag errors”.

Sadly, those rumours aren’t true. Claude is one of the most common Beanie Babies available and those tag errors we keep hearing about are either not errors at all or were so mass produced that the “errors” are as common as a correctly spelled tag.

So what’s the TRUTH about Claude?

Before we go into that, here’s a little more information on the infamous crustacean.

A little about Claude…

Claude’s style number is 4083.

His body, legs and pincers are tie-dyed a beautiful blue and brown colour, with the exception of his white underside. He has little black eyes and black thread antennae that are knotted at the end.

Tag Generation

Claude came with either a 4th or 5th generation hang tag (see our swing tag guide for more information) and a 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th generation tush tag (see our tush tag guide).

The picture below is an example of Claude with a 5th generation hang tag and 6th generation tush tag.

Claude the Crab Beanie Baby with 5th generation hang tag and 6th generation tush tag

Birthday

Claude’s Birthday is on 3rd September 1996.

Poem

Claude’s poem is as follows:

Claude the crab paints by the sea
A famous artist he hopes to be
But the tide came in and his paints fell
Now his art is on his shell!

Variations

Claude also has an adorable McDonald’s Teenie Beanie Baby counterpart who was released back in May 1999!

Claude doesn’t have a matching Beanie Buddy. However, the tie-dyed version of the Digger Beanie Buddy bears a similar resemblance!

So what is Claude REALLY worth?

After hearing the truth that he isn’t really worth thousands of dollars, I’m sure you’re wanting to know what Claude is REALLY worth?

I have written a handy guide on how to figure out the answer to that question (and the value of other Beanie Babies), which you can find in the link below.

What Are My Beanie Babies Really Worth?

As stated in the guide, the easiest way to find out how much he is worth, is to see what Claude actually SOLD for on eBay. After all, a Beanie Baby is only worth what someone is willing to pay.

SEE CLAUDE SOLD PRICES ON EBAY UK

SEE CLAUDE SOLD PRICES ON EBAY US

By using this guide, we can see that Claude sold for $5.50 in August 2021 and $3.25 in September 2021 which would create an average of around $1-5.

How much is Claude beanie baby worth?

There is another version of Claude who had a 4th generation hang tag with his name all in capital letters, like the example shown below.

This version is worth slightly more as it is slightly less common, fetching up to around $10.

What about the high sold values on eBay?

If you look down the sold listings, you may find sold prices that are also on the high side. There are various reasons for this.

Fake sales: A seller can “buy” their own Beanie using a different account, or get a friend to buy it for them. This creates a false high value, making it seem like there is a lot of interest in the particular Beanie. A buyer never has to pay for the item for it to show up in the sold listings. These sales will normally have only one bidder with zero/very little feedback.

Money Laundering: When criminals are trying to move money around, what better way than to hide it through a legitimate-looking sale on eBay.

Vigilante “buyers”: The bidder is on a mission to take down sellers who are trying to sell their Beanie for way too much money. They bid on the item, taking it off the market and never pay for the item. It teaches the seller a valuable lesson…not to overcharge for Beanies. Unfortunately, this also ends up in the sold listings, making things more confusing.

I hope this article was helpful to you in figuring out the true value of Claude, as well as giving you a little more information on him.

Genevieve the Cat – Attic Treasures Review

October 11th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

In my last post, I mentioned that I had purchased a new Beanie that I’d seen based on one of the requests that I’d added and that I’d do a full review once I’d received her. Well….she arrived!

Meet Genevieve!

genevieve ty attic treasures

Genevieve is a beautiful white cat from the Attic Treasures collection! I couldn’t resist getting her!

I’ve given her fur a comb (well, who doesn’t have a bad hair day after being sent in the mail?), but now she’s back to her former glory. Her fur is really fluffy, so much so that I had to try and comb it out of the way of her gorgeous blue eyes! She has the cutest, embroidered pale pink nose and long, white thread whiskers. For the final touch, she has a little pink rose just above her right ear.

She has a 7th generation Attic Treasures hang tag (not to be confused with a 3rd generation Beanie Babies hang tag as they look very similar on the outside – see the Beanie Baby tag identification guide) and has the following phrase inside:

“Feline Great!”

It’s short and simple but suits her well, as she does indeed look like she’s feeling great.

When I saw Genevieve, I knew I HAD to have her in my collection! As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m a huge cat lover and love to collect the Ty cats. I also love her name, Genevieve. I think it sounds really pretty and goes well with her delicate features. Also…how cute are those toe beans?!

genevieve ty attic treasures

I’ve always loved the Attic Treasures collection. It’s one of my favourite product lines along with Beanie Babies and Beanie Boos. I love how they have a vintage look to them, and like their name suggests, have come straight out of the attic.

Do you have Genevieve in your collection or any other Attic Treasures? What do you think of Genevieve? Leave a comment below!

Halloween is nearly here!

October 8th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

It’s been so busy here lately! I’ve been trying to get in as many Beanie requests as possible as I’ve had so many! I’ve still got some more to get through, but I’ve got through quite a big portion of them. The only issue with adding Beanie requests is that I find myself seeing Beanies I absolutely ADORE and must have!

I have actually ordered a new Beanie because of one of the requests I have had through. I will reveal which Beanie when I receive her and do a full review, but she looks so cute that I can’t wait to get her!

I have got some new Halloween Beanies though. Here they are pictured below:

I managed to pick up the two new Halloween Ty Puffies, Echo and Seeds! Echo is so adorable with his little round, fluffy body and tiny fangs and Seeds is cute too!

I also got Seeds in Flippables form! I love how he looks so happy! His glittery green eyes also look great against his bright orange sequins.

Jinx also arrived! I love her gold and dark brown sequins and her odd eyes in orange and green. She also carries a sparkly pumpkin treat in her mouth.

Last but not least, I managed to get hold of Eerie! Eerie is part of the Squish a Boos range and his tiny, sparkly purple wings are too cute for words!

I’ve also got my eye on two Halloween Beanies that I really want in my collection.

The first of these is Hocus.

I love how this little guy has his very own pet spider who he carries around on top of his head.

The second Halloween Beanie I want to get hold of is Scaredy.

Scaredy was a Halloween Beanie Baby I added recently as a request. She is actually part of the Beanie Babies 2.0 range and featured a special code to access a section of Ty’s website that used to be available where you could play games and chat. I love how she has an arched back as if she’s scared of something (hence the name, “Scaredy”).

Latest Beanie Haul!

September 25th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

Recently I’ve been on the hunt for Beanie bargains! One of my favourite places to go is to my local charity shops!

Up until this week, I haven’t had much luck as there have either been no Beanies to be seen or they have had ones I already own. This week however, I’ve managed to pick up a LOT!

I found a 2000 Signature Teddy in my local British Heart Foundation shop. I just LOVE the colours on this one!

He is a mottled purple and grey colour and absolutely beautiful. He wears a multicoloured mesh ribbon and features the embroidered Signature Bear heart with the year 2000 on it.

Float and Twitterbug are two new bugs to join my collection.

I love how Float has a longer pile on the fabric of her upper wings as it makes them look a little furry. I also LOVE the name “Twitterbug”! It sounds very cute (even though I know from experience cicadas are VERY noisy!).

I also found a few new kitties for my collection! Tabitha, Purr and Miles were also charity shop finds.

Sadly, Miles didn’t have a hang tag attached, but I couldn’t leave her all on her own, so she came home too!

I also found Cara from the Hallmark shop at Lakeside Shopping Outlet in the UK. There were 50% Ty products, so I also picked up Enchanted to go with her.

I picked up Derby (fluffy mane version) and Iggy (blue version without a tongue) as I didn’t have them and they were both cheap. I used to own them both, but I can’t remember what happened to them.

I also picked up some tinies. Stretchy, ‘Nook, Claude and Rocket are all McDonald’s Teenie Beanie Babies, Ozzie is a Halloweenie Beanie owl and Gypsy the St. Bernard is a Teeny Ty.

I found a Flippables Pixy the unicorn in Poundland who is absolutely beautiful! I adore her rainbow coloured glittery eyes!

Here they are altogether…

And finally, today I found four more Beanie Babies. Sheets, Danny Dog, Squirmy and the Cat with Heart Eyes emoji.

Beanie News Update

September 15th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

Sorry things have been quiet lately. Things have been a bit hectic at home recently and I just haven’t had much spare time.

Anyway, what’s been going on in the Beanie world?

Well it turns out that the “unknown” range that I wrote about before are a brand new, redesign for the Beanie Babies range!

There are eight new Beanie Babies using the new design. Their names are Mitzi, Miso, Ying, Clawdia, Skylar, Ace, Duncan and Wilfred. My favourite of these new designs is Miso (pictured below) and I can’t wait to see what he looks like in real life!

It’s getting closer to one of my favourite times of the year….Halloween!

One of the most disappointing pieces of news is that there will be NO new Halloween Beanie Boos this year! I’m so sad about this as I LOVE the Halloween Boos!

However, there are a few new Halloween Squish a Boos, my personal favourite being Eerie the bat (pictured below). I love his little purple wings and tiny fangs! Eerie is available in both a small and large size.

The second bit of sad news is that there will also be no Christmas Beanie Boos! There will be a “Winter-themed”, icy penguin named Tony (pictured below), but no specific Holiday Boo. Tony is very cute but I would have liked some more Christmassy Boos this year to cheer us all up this year.

However, as with Halloween, there are also going to be a few Christmas Squish a Boos. There is a snowman called Flurry, who will be available in a small and large size, and a gingerbread man called Cookie (pictured below), also in small and large.

On a brighter note, the new Beanie Boos are now appearing in the USA, and will be available shortly in the UK too!

My favourite is probably Opal! A fellow Beanie friend of mine described her fur as being like cotton-candy and I totally agree with this description! I can’t wait to get her! Isn’t she just adorable?!

What do you think of the new Beanies? Are you also disappointed that there are no Halloween or Christmas Beanie Boos this year? Leave a comment below!

Upcoming 2021 Beanies now added to the database!

July 21st, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

I am pleased to say that I have FINALLY added all of the upcoming new Beanie Babies, Beanie Boos, Puffies, Mini Boos key clips, Squish a Boos and the brand new un-named range to the database! There were a LOT to get through, but they should now be all up there, so please let me know if I’ve missed any!

The good thing is that there is now something to look forward to after a bit of a lull waiting for new Beanies! I’m so excited about the new range too!

Below is a full list of all the upcoming 2021 Beanies which will hopefully be released later in the year! (There have been other Beanie sightings, but I’m awaiting information on them before I can add them to the database).

Beanie Babies

As far as I know, there are two new Beanie Babies coming to the range. I’m really looking forward to seeing Squire (pictured below) in reality as his stock image looks so cute!

Nuzzle the Chocolate Labrador

Colin the Corgi

Squire the Squirrel

Beanie Boos

There are also twelve new Beanie Boos on the Ty Calendar, with potentially more to be released! I’ve seen other Beanie Boo designs, but I’m just awaiting more information before I can add them to the database. Noodles (pictured below) is one of the new Beanie Boos and he looks so adorable!

Eva the Elephant

Hunk the Husky

Karli the Koala

Mai the Cat

Meadow the Fox

Noodles the Golden Doodle Dog

Oakie the Raccoon

Oakie the Raccoon (Medium)

Oakie the Raccoon (Key Clip)

Opal the Cat

Four new Ty Puffies have been added to the calendar too, with my favourite being Sheldon (pictured below). I love her coral-pink colouring!

Bamboo the Panda

Munchkin the Dog

Sheldon the Octopus

Tia the Cat

Mini Boos Key Clips

There are going to be four new Mini Boos key clips, with my favourite being Patsy (pictured below). I love the look of her textured “fur” and her bright pink colouring!

Fetch the Dog

Glider the Penguin

Grapes the Monkey

Patsy the Poodle

Squish a Boos

A whopping 38 new Squish a Boos have been announced, with 20 new designs! Zinger (pictured below) is one of the new designs and I just love this happy, little bee!

Unknown Range

This is the brand new, unknown range that has been announced on the calendar. So far, the name of the range isn’t known and I’m not sure yet if they will have birth dates, although I suspect they will as they have a poem included on the calendar. I haven’t added the birth dates yet on the database until I can confirm they definitely have one.

Clawdia (pictured below) is one of the new range, and to me they look a little like an updated version of the retired Wild Wild Best range. Isn’t Clawdia so cute!

Ace the German Shepherd

Clawdia the Tiger

Duncan the Bear

Miso the Cat

Mitzi the Cat

Skylar the Unicorn

Wilfred the Dog

Ying the Panda

So that’s all the new Beanies so far. I still haven’t seen anything about any Halloween Beanie Boos, only Squish a Boos, so I’m desperately hoping that Ty do release some this year.

Also, there is some more exciting news for UK collectors…

There is an ongoing competition happening on the @tyofficial.co.uk Instagram page!

The competition is in conjunction with Paultons Park and you have the chance to win the ONLY two Peppa Pig Squish a Boos currently available, plus a family ticket of four people to visit Paultons Park and Peppa Pig World!

The Peppa Pig Squish a Boos will eventually be available from Paultons Park, but it’s aways worth a go to win something for free!
