    – Chorus reviews Beanie Babies – #2 Kicks the Bear –

    Ah Kicks. My first Beanie Baby. A classic to me. Based on their name, look, and poem, they’re a soccer (or football in some places) player by trade. Being the first sports-related Beanie Baby is quite the feat. Good work, Kicks!

    Anyways, Kicks is one of many, many, many Beanie Baby Bears (or BBB for short). It’s a time-tested pattern that usually looks good no matter what. They have a plastic and very “boop”-able nose. A cute one, Kicks is. The stuffed part here is their head. Makes since since that needs to be defined the most. You’ll see when I review more that the stuffed part being the head is common!

    Kicks is fuzzy and somewhat soft (mine isn’t but that’s because of age.), and has a Belly Badge- I mean Cutie Mark- I mean uh… symbol… on their heart. It’s a soccer/football, obviously. Makes sense. The seams here are clear, but they aren’t intrusive!

    Overall, Kicks is a nice Beanie Baby. Not an S Rank one, but pretty good.
