Massive Beanie haul!

May 7th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi guys!

I hope you’ve had a great week! I just wanted to share with you all my latest Beanie haul!

It started off with three Beanies from The Magical Gift Boutique, who are a fantastic shop for buying Beanies based in the UK. I saw that they had the suit-wearing Mr. Bean teddy Beanie Baby back in stock and, being a long-time lover of the TV series, Mr. Bean, I had to have him! I was lucky too as later that day, they had sold out again! I also ordered Gertie and Faye (the unicorn fox) along with him.

I have to say that Gertie is actually better in real life than I first thought. She was one of those mad Beanie Boos that I wasn’t too sure about, but now I actually love her craziness!

Last weekend, I also had some luck in Clinton’s as they had a 20% discount on Ty products. I took advantage of that and bought Kate, Fredrick, Lola and Marshall (Paw Patrol). Marshall I bought for my Paw Patrol-loving daughter’s collection.

I had better success in the charity shops this time too, managing to grab a Waddles Mini Boo, two Jingle Beanies (Holiday Teddy 2003 and Toboggan) and the beautiful Rafaella.

Rafaella is part of the Attic Treasures collection and she reminds me of the Shakespeare play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. She could easily be one of the fairies from the play. I think she is one of my favourite finds this week.

I also bought Darla, who arrived in the mail earlier this week.

As you may know from a previous post, I have been trying to collect the dragon Beanie Boos. Now I can add Darla and Kate to that set. Yes, I know Kate is TECHNICALLY a Flippable, but I’ve included her anyway since Flippables are pretty much glammed-up Beanie Boos. This is my dragon collection so far:

Now I just need Cinder, Spectra and Merlin to complete the small dragon Beanie Boos.

I also bought an adorable little bear called Cody. He came from a wonderful charity called the Folly Wildlife Rescue who do fantastic work rescuing injured and orphaned animals and birds all year round.

Cody, like most Attic Treasures has jointed limbs that can be posed. So he can wave to you, like this!

He’s just so lovely and fuzzy that I couldn’t resist him. I love the original Attic Treasures as they have so much personality.

Finally…my latest Beanie Boo which I have been wanting for a while now….

Loy!

I can’t believe I finally have this little guy!

Loy is a Japanese exclusive Beanie Boo, and features an additional Japanese hang tag with the most adorable picture on it!

His red Ty hang tag is written in English with the birth date of 10th November and his poem reads as follows:

No truer companion will you ever find
I’m loyal and loving to all of mankind.

I’m so happy I finally have Loy in my collection as he was the only one available in the UK at the time!

Slim pickings….

April 26th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi guys!

Another lovely day here at Beaniepedia HQ! Freckles took a walk in the park this morning and found a very interesting-looking plant that looked like a cabbage.

At the weekend, we went Beanie Hunting! We went to the charity shops in search of bargains, but sadly there were hardly any Beanies out there! The only Beanies I found were Doby, Silver, Liberty, and Benny from the Ty Monstaz range, but I already have them in my collection.

I also found Rainbow Dash from the My Little Pony set of Beanie Babies, but she wasn’t in the best condition, so I left her.

However, I did find this little cutie….

This little white tiger is called Tundra and she’s so sweet! I love the expression on her face as she almost looks a little confused about something!

This is the first version of Tundra, as there was another tiger called Tundra released in 2014 with glittery eyes that looks very similar to a Beanie Boo, but with smaller eyes.

 

She has a slightly coarse texture to her fur that has a slight shine to it in the light. Her body is covered in beautiful black stripes from head to toe, with the exception of her belly and muzzle.

Tundra’s Birthday is on 4th September 2005 and her poem reads:

So quiet you won’t hear a sound
As I stalk and prowl around
Watch out or I’ll give you a scare
When I jump out and say, “Hi there”!

All in all, this weekend was a partial success. Although I’ve had other days where I’ve managed to find loads of bargains, this weekend I only managed to find one. However, the bargain I did find, I’m really happy with, especially for £1.50! I bought her from a Cancer Research UK charity shop, so the money will also go to a good cause.

What do you think of Tundra? Have you found any bargains this weekend? Leave a comment below!

We’re Going on a Beanie Hunt!

April 23rd, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi guys!

It’s a lovely sunny afternoon here at Beaniepedia HQ and the best part is…it’s Friday!

We had a lovely walk around the park this morning and Nuts posed for a photo shoot.

Tomorrow, I am hoping to hit the charity shops (thrift stores in the USA) in the hope that I can find some bargain Beanie Babies/Boos!

Up until recently in the UK, most shops, including charity shops were closed due to the pandemic. They are now finally open again, so we are going to see if we can find any bargains!

I love searching charity shops for bargains. Not only is it fun to see what you can find, and you are essentially recycling by buying unwanted things, but the money is also going to a good cause, which makes it even better!

Do you hunt for Beanies in charity shops/thrift stores? What are your most recent finds? Leave a comment below!

Dragons, Dragons, Dragons…

April 14th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi guys!

It’s a lovely, sunny Wednesday afternoon here at Beaniepedia HQ and Nuts is hanging out with his buddy, Scorch!

As I’ve mentioned on my other website, Jelly Collector, I’m currently OBSESSED with collecting dragons! Scorch, the dragon Beanie Baby above is one of my all-time favourites. I’ve had him for years and bought him because at the time I LOVED Spyro the Dragon on the PS1.

Currently, Holly, the Claire’s exclusive dragon is the only dragon in my Beanie Boos collection (isn’t she beautiful?!).

However, I do have some dragon Beanie Boos on the way. Soon, I should hopefully have Saffire, Grindal and Anora (pictured below).

I was going to order Cinder too, but I might have to try and get him next month.

I am also in love with Spectra, but as I’m in the UK and she is a Michael’s exclusive from the USA, he is harder to get over here, although not impossible.

Merlin, the Walgreens exclusive dragon, is another one that is harder to find, especially in the UK. He is a gorgeous black dragon with a shiny orange belly. I love his shiny scale pattern that covers him from head to toe.

Darla is another dragon I might have to leave until a later date. She is probably going to be a bit easier to get hold of as she’s currently widely available.

She is a bright pink dragon covered in sparkles and has beautiful, shiny green wings and sparkly green eyes.

I would also love Kate from the Flippables range. I love how her sequins look like scales and they are a beautiful colour!

I hope that Ty make more dragon Beanie Boos as I find them sooo cute!

Top 5 Spring Beanie Boos

April 7th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi guys!

I hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter!

Well, after a lovely warm Sunday, the weather seems to have decided that it would like to go back to Winter again as it’s freeeeezing!

Since it’s (apparently) Spring, I’ve decided to post up my five favourite Springtime Beanie Boos! (these are subject to change as I’m forever changing my mind!)

The first Beanie Boo on my list is Feathers.

Feathers is the Easter Chick offering this year! The reason I chose her is because she is so fluffy! She just looks like a little marshmallow and is so cute! I like how her fur is two-tone with a pale yellow base and hints of pink.

Next is Clover!

 

Clover was released back in 2011 and I love the simplicity of her. She was released before Ty made every Beanie Boo glittery and I love that she just looks like a normal, simple lamb.

Third in my list is Hennie!

Hennie is the only “older” chicken Beanie Boo. What I mean by that is that she isn’t a baby chick like the other chicken Beanie Boos, she is a hen (hence her name). I love her fuzzy white feathers and red comb.

Up next is Lollypop!

Lollypop is a little bunny with colourful fur. She looks like what her name suggests, a lollypop! I think her pink nose goes perfectly with the white of her chin.

And finally…

It’s Fuzzy!

Fuzzy is the second Spring offering this year! I was actually torn between Fuzzy and Slippers (last year’s Easter bunny). They are both very similar, but I chose Fuzzy as I actually prefer her purple fur. She is one of those Beanie Boos that pictures don’t really do her justice and she is much cuter in real life.

Have a very Happy Easter!

April 1st, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi guys!

I’d just like to wish you all a lovely Easter!

Recently, I managed to get hold of Fuzzy and Feathers, the two Easter Beanie Boos for 2021! I must say I’ve changed my mind a little!

On a previous post, I said that Fuzzy was very similar to Slippers, last year’s Easter bunny and I wasn’t sure about her. She is very similar, BUT I really really like her! I love her colour and I think she’s just adorable!

Feathers is also the perfect match for Lemon Drop, last year’s Easter chick and is sooo fluffy and cute!

Both Fuzzy and Feather’s also make a great match, don’t you think?

The picture doesn’t do them justice as they look far better in real life.

I also picked up a bargain last weekend as Poundland (in the UK) had all of the smaller size Squish a Boos in stock for £5 each! So I picked up Bloomy and Popper!

These two are the new Easter Squish a Boos for this year, so I had to grab them while they were so cheep (oh dear…bad joke alert).

Here they are pictured next to Dotty, my larger sized Squish a Boo.

Aren’t they cute?! They are sooo squishy, and make great Easter decorations!

Hope you all have a very Happy Easter and stay safe!

Tuesday News Roundup!

March 23rd, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi guys!

It’s time for a news roundup of what’s been going on in the world of Beanies.

There are a few upcoming Beanie Boos that I forgot to mention that should be out later this year. The first of these is a cute little dog called Muddles. Even his name is adorable!

He is covered in cute little spots, which may or may not be muddy patches from (and I quote from his poem) “playing in muddy puddles”!

Muddles will be available in a small, medium and key clip size.

Next, is a cat named Cassidy!

Cassidy is a gorgeous purple and pink, mottled cat with glittery pink eyes. I absolutely adore her colour!

Cassidy will be available in a small, medium and key clip size.

Now, the next new addition is one of my favourite Beanie Boos of the year! Nina!

Nina is a cute little ballerina mouse! I absolutely adore her sparkly, pink tutu and glittery ballerina shoes!

She will also be available in a small, medium and key clip size.

And finally, the next upcoming new faces are almost the same as previous Beanie Boos that have already been released, which I’m not too sure about as they are practically identical in every way.

The first of these is Fiona.

Fiona looks absolutely identical to the Claire’s exclusive, Amaya. The only differences are the poem, birth date and style number. I guess Fiona is trying to be the regular retail version of Amaya, but I think that Ty could have made some effort to make her a little different (and Amaya is one of my favourite Beanie Boos).

Fiona will be available in a small, medium and key clip size.

The second of these clones of previous releases is Atlas.

Atlas is like the twin sister of the Claire’s exclusive, Piper (pictured below). They are basically the same Beanie Boo.

The only difference in appearance are that Atlas has embroidered eyelashes and Piper doesn’t….that’s all. However, they do have a different poem, style number and birth date. But looks-wise, they are basically identical.

Atlas will be available in a small, medium and key clip size.

My verdict on these new additions?

I love love LOVE Muddles, Cassidy and Nina. I think they are good new additions to the Beanie Boos range. I LIKE Atlas and Fiona, but only because I like Piper and Amaya. However, I think Ty could have done something different with them. To me, it feels like they’ve just reused the same design and shoved a new birth date and poem on them.

New Site Update – Beanie Wishlist!

March 15th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend!

Yesterday was Mother’s Day here in the UK, and my wonderful daughter (with some help from Daddy) gave me two Beanie Boos!

Meet Gumball and Dotty! They are two that I’ve been wanting for a while, but for whatever reason, I just never seemed to get round to buying them! But I’m so grateful for my lovely present, they are both so cute!

gumball beanie boo and dotty beanie boo

I just wanted to share them both with you as they are now two of my favourite Beanie Boos and soooo colourful!

Anyway, the reason for this post…

I didn’t have the chance to post about it before, but last week a couple of improvements/fixes were made to the website!

One was something that has been requested before and something I have been meaning to add for sometime…a Beanie wishlist!

If you spot a Beanie while browsing the website that you want to add to your collection at a later date and you don’t want to forget who it is, you can now add it to your Wishlist area!

To add a Beanie to your Wishlist, click on the “Add it to my wishlist” link on the right-hand side of the page (see the screenshot below):

 

To view the Beanies in your Wishlist, visit the area at the top of the page called “My Wishlist” highlighted in the screenshot below:

Hope this is of use to you, and if you experience any issues, please get in touch!

Also, one of our members pointed out that you were no longer able to post comments/reviews on any of the Beanies. This issue has now been fixed! My apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Hope you like the new Wishlist feature and stay tuned for more Beanie updates!

8th March – Beanie Boo Birthdays!

March 8th, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

Happy International Women’s Day!

Today is a day to celebrate the achievements of women from around the world!

It is also the Birthday of four Beanie Boos!

The first of these Brunch.

Brunch is a white Spring/Easter Beanie Boo rabbit released last year and she carries a little orange carrot, ready to give to you as a present.

Next up is Mandy.

Mandy is a blue poodle and I absolutely ADORE her colour! I like the fact that Ty kept it simple with her and made her blue all over, from her curly fur to her glittery blue eyes!

The third Beanie Boo Birthday today is that of Piggley!

There were actually two versions of this cute little pig. The Piggley on the left of the image above was actually the first version back in 2016. Then, in 2017 he was re-released in the darker pink colour of the Piggley on the right.

Last, but not least, is Specks!

Specks, as her name suggests, is speckled in pink and purple all over her body. She also has beautiful, shiny pink inner ears and feet!

After that, there’s only one thing left to say!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRUNCH, MANDY, PIGGLEY AND SPECKS!

Top 5 Mother’s Day Beanie Babies

March 2nd, 2021 by Rachel (admin)

Hi everyone!

It’s just under two weeks until Mother’s Day in the UK now, so I thought I’d show you five of my favourite Mother’s Day Beanie Babies! As always, these are in no particular order.

The first of these is a lovely white bear called Dear One!

Dear One holds a beautiful bouquet of white roses in her paws, tied delicately with a pale pink ribbon. I love the little finishing touches on her, like the green leaves that form part of the bouquet.

Next is a bright pink bear called Dear Mom.

Dear Mom has more of a “traditional” teddy bear style of face with an embroidered nose instead of the classic Beanie Baby bear, oval-shaped nose. She is made from a soft, pink fabric and holds a delicate pink, mesh flower in her paws.

The next Mother’s Day bear in this list is simply called Mum.

Mum is a light pink colour and has the classic look of a Beanie Baby bear. She has three, pale lilac-coloured tulips embroidered on her chest tied with a tiny, bright pink ribbon.

I love the simplicity of this bear and her poem says everything you need:

She always looks at me with pride
When I’m in need she’s at my side
She cares for me and she’s my chum
And that is why I love my Mum!

Second to last on my list is the bright pink bear, Dearly!

Dearly is a salmon-pink colour bear who carries a huge, white flower in her paws with the word “MOM” embroidered on it’s petals. I like how the white of the flower goes well the pink colour of the bear and it has little details like the darker green veins on flower’s leaves.

Last but not least is Motherly!

Motherly is actually part of the Beanie Babies 2.0 range.

She is a gorgeous light blue colour and covered in a pink, floral pattern. She was released back in 2008, hence the writing on her pale pink ribbon and was a Hallmark Gold Crown exclusive Beanie Baby.

I think it’s such a shame that Ty don’t seem to make any Mother’s Day Beanie Babies anymore and there are no Mother’s Day Beanie Boos at all! I would love a Mother’s Day Beanie Boo!
