Beanie Baby Birthday – Zeus!

Friday, October 23rd, 2020

Hi everyone! I hope you are all safe and well!

Well it’s a little bit of a grey, damp day here at Beaniepedia HQ today so I thought I’d look up which Beanie had a Birthday today and I came across….*drum roll*….

Zeus the Moose!

I just thought this little guy looked so adorable! He reminds me in some ways of an updated Chocolate, one of the Original 9 Beanie Babies.

His Birthday is 23rd October 2002 and his poem reads as follows:

With mighty antlers on my head
It’s difficult to get in bed
But I sleep better, yes I do
When I am cuddled next to you!

I also just love the name Zeus, giving the impression that he’s this big, strong, almighty being, but really he’s this cuddly little thing just asking for a hug!

Have you got Zeus in your collection?

Mini Boos section now complete!

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020

Hi everyone!

I have been asked by a few of our members recently about adding more Mini Boos to the website as it was looking a bit bare. I had recently been focusing on adding Beanie Babies and other requests and was going to update it at a later date.

However, I have now updated the Mini Boos section of the website and I am pleased to say that it is now (as far as I know) complete! Please let me know if I have missed any out!

Above (along with the Batty photobomb) are the only Mini Boos I have so far as I mainly collect Beanie Babies and Beanie Boos, but aren’t they so cute?!

Do you collect Mini Boos? If so, which are your favourites? Let us know below!

It’s mid-week already!

Wednesday, October 7th, 2020

Well it’s the middle of the week again!

As you may be aware from my Facebook and Instagram pages, we recently got back to the UK from Bulgaria, and as such, we are now in quarantine for 14 days. I don’t know if it’s being quarantine, or being back in the UK with easier access to Beanies (Bulgaria doesn’t really have a market for them), I think I’ve gone a bit Beanie-crazy recently as I’ve managed to get hold of all three Halloween Beanie Boos, Radar, Pandora and Spike! Here they all are pictured with Roam below.

I can’t decide which is my favourite. At first, being a bit of a cat-lover, I thought it might be Pandora. I just love her green eyes and little witch’s hat!

But now, I’m torn between all three!

Radar has a round, fluffy body with little white highlights and I love the colour pattern on his wings and ears. His eyes are also a little different as they almost have a “glowing” look to them.

And Spike is also ultra-adorable!

He has these cute little dark circles under his eyes (almost like myself most days!) and his little smile cheers me right up!

As well as these cuties, I also have Bruni (with sound) on the way. The place I bought him from (The Magical Gift Boutique) kindly gave me the option to have one delivered later, even though I was away at the time, so he should be on his way to me shortly (yay!)

And finally, I have ordered two more Beanie Boos. Hope (who I was unable to get while I was away) and Chase (from Paw Patrol) are currently on their way to me. I’m not actually sure which colour nose my Hope will have, but I’m thinking maybe blue? Technically, one of these two isn’t actually for me – it’s my daughter’s Birthday coming up soon and she ADORES Paw Patrol – so that makes it a tiny bit better, but a few more Beanies have caught my eye since…

Have you bought any new Beanies recently? If so, what new additions do you have to your collections? Leave a comment below!

Have a great Wednesday!

Beanie Baby Review – Stripes the Zebra!

Friday, October 2nd, 2020

Hi everyone!

As promised earlier this week, I am now going to review another recent Beanie Baby I purchased…Stripes!

Stripes is an adorable white zebra with airbrushed black stripes. He has large, glittery blue button eyes that really stand out from his white fur! His eyes could almost be mistaken for those of a Beanie Boo, but Stripes is from the Beanie Babies range.

His fuzzy mane and the tip of his tail are both white with subtle hints of black mixed in. His muzzle, inner ears and hooves are all pale grey and he has black stitching for his mouth and nostrils.

Stripes has the given Birthday of 17th January and his poem reads as follows:

My stripes help me to hide from danger
I run and hide when I see a stranger!

As you can see from his tush tag, Stripes is made from the trademarked VelveTy material which is very soft to the touch. It also has a subtle sheen to it which catches the light.

My final thoughts on Stripes are that he is incredibly cute and he has the most gorgeous eyes! I definitely think it was the right decision to go with the blue, glittery eyes. I am so glad to have this little guy in my collection now as I had been meaning to get him for ages!

What do you think of Stripes? Do you have him in your collection?
