McDonald’s Teenie Beanie Boos coming to the UK!

Saturday, November 28th, 2020

Hi everyone!

Previously, I posted an article about the Teenie Beanie Boos that arrived to Germany from August to September.

Well, I’ve just found out on the McDonald’s website that the Teenie Beanie Boos are arriving to the UK!

They are going to be included in every McDonald’s Happy Meal from 2nd December, so keep a look out for them! I’m not sure whether they will be available for individual purpose yet, especially with the current situation, but at least they’re going to be finally available soon!

Interestingly, it looks like are going to be two new faces appearing. As seen below, there seems to be a winged pegasus and a griffin, which is kind of cool.

I am really looking forward to these guys finally coming to the UK, so from 2nd December, keep your eyes open for them!

Stay safe and have a great Saturday!

Unboxing Holly, the Claire’s exclusive Beanie Boo!

Tuesday, November 24th, 2020

Hi guys!

I’m really excited because today my Holly Beanie Boo arrived!

Holly is one of the three, brand new Claire’s exclusive Beanie Boos, the other two being Rory the kangaroo and Kora the koala.

So far, only Holly is available in the UK, but all three are available on the USA Claire’s website, where you can find Holly, Kora and Rory.

My first thoughts on Holly are that she looks nothing like the stock image on the Claire’s website and more like the original promotional image where she appeared to be more of an ice-blue colour.

Take a look at my unboxing video below!

Claire’s exclusives now available in the US!

Monday, November 23rd, 2020

Hi everyone!

Previously I mentioned about the new Claire’s exclusive Beanie Boos, Holly, Kora and Rory.

A few days ago, Holly was released on all the Claire’s websites worldwide. I have one on it’s way to me now which I will do an unboxing of when it arrives.

Well, now it appears that Kora and Rory are also now available! Unfortunately (for me) they are only available in the USA at the moment, so us lot in the UK will have to wait a little longer (BOOOO! No fair!)

Anyway, for those in the USA, they are all available on the Claire’s website!

I have updated all their details on Beaniepedia, including their poems and birthdates.

New YouTube Channel!

Sunday, November 22nd, 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m really excited to tell you that I have decided to launch a brand new YouTube channel!

On the channel, I’m hoping to include unboxing videos, reviews and Beanie news. At the moment, it’s all a bit experimental, but I thought I’d try it out!

So, please check it out and subscribe for further updates!

What do you think? Please be kind, this is my very first video!

Holly is now available!

Friday, November 20th, 2020

Hi everyone!

I have some exciting news for you all! One of our members got in contact to let me know that the brand new dragon Beanie Boo, Holly, is now available on the Claire’s website!

The bad news is…I just had to order one! So, I’m really excited that she’s on the way to me soon, but I promised myself no more Beanie Boos this month (oops!). However, I’ll do an unboxing shortly (along with a few others I still have to do…)

She looks slightly more purple-y in this picture than I originally thought she would be. From the original image that Claire’s released she had more of an icy-blue hue to her, so I guess I’ll find out when she arrives and let you know.

I have updated her page now that I have more information on her, so go and check her out!

Just to warn you if you are thinking of getting Holly, the Claire’s website were suggesting that they had low stock levels.

Do you have Holly in your collection yet? What are your thoughts on her? Leave a comment below!

Peek-a-Boos list now complete!

Wednesday, November 18th, 2020

Hi everyone!

As you know, I’ve been getting through Beanie requests to add to the website. I’ve managed to add in quite a few of those, although there are still loads of Beanies to get through so don’t worry I will get to those eventually too.

One of those requests was to complete the Peek-a-Boos section of the site, which I’m happy to say is now complete!

Peek-a-Boos are a range of smart phone and tablet holders that look very similar to Beanie Boos. The underside of each Peek-a-Boo was made from a handy screen-cleaning fabric, so you could wipe the fingerprints off your screen. Ty haven’t officially stated the retirement of the range, but there hasn’t been a new Peek-a-Boo since 2017.

Do you have any Peek-a-Boos?

Quick Tuesday tip for your Beanie Boos!

Tuesday, November 17th, 2020

Hi everyone!

Today I was sorting through my Beanie Boos and I noticed that Asha and Orson, being Beanies with extra fluffy hair, were looking a little bit scruffy. Their hair was covering their eyes and just wasn’t looking in great condition. Here is a previous picture from when I first bought them.

I grabbed my daughter’s baby comb, which is quite fine-toothed and gave them a bit of a pamper. Here’s little Orson having his hair combed.

I must say, I think they look extra fluffy afterwards! Now their colours really show up and they just look fabulous!

Anyway, I thought I’d share this little tip with you all, just in case anybody finds it useful.

Also, I have a Beanie order turning up today that I’m really excited about. It was estimated to turn up tomorrow, but I got a notification to say it was coming today instead. I love it when that happens! Anyway, I’ll do an unboxing of that later, so stay tuned!

I’ve got a few more requests to get through today, so look out to see if the Beanies you requested show up today. Don’t worry if they aren’t there yet, I am getting through your emails and they will show up shortly!

Have a great Tuesday folks and stay safe!

Friday is here!

Friday, November 13th, 2020

It’s Friday, and quite a sunny one at Beaniepedia HQ!

This morning I took this photo of my new medium-sized Charmed Flippable, who I absolutely ADORE! I’ve never really collected the medium Beanie Boos/Flippables before (mainly because of space to keep them all), but there is something about the medium size Flippables especially because the sequins seem to flip more easily!

It’s also Friday 13th today, which is a little concerning if you’re superstitious in the year 2020 where nothing seems to be going right.

I’ve managed to get in a few more Beanie requests today (for some reason I can’t reply to one of the members who contacted me, but just to let you know I got your email and I have added some of the Beanies that weren’t on the website. I still have some to add but I will get them in shortly).

Right now, I’m going to have a tea break (excuse the bowl. It’s my daughter’s, honest!). Have a great weekend!

It’s Monday!

Monday, November 9th, 2020

Hi everyone!

As the title says, it’s Monday again at Beaniepedia HQ and it’s a bit of a damp day again (what’s new?!).

Last week was my daughter’s 1st Birthday and she loved her new Beanie Boo, Chase! She loves Paw Patrol and it’s her favourite character, so I just HAD to get him for her!

The only problem is he is so cute that now I want the set too!

I have also finally got hold of all the Christmas Beanie Boos and Puffies, which I’m very excited about!

Here they are pictured below:

From left to right, on the back row we have Cheer the penguin, Chimney the mouse, Snowfall the unicorn and Howlidays the dog. Just sat in front of them are Brie the mouse and Fudge the reindeer.

I love them all but I think if I had to pick, my two favourites would have to be the two mice, Chimney and Brie.

Last weekend, I also came across some bargains that might be of use to those in the UK, although it may be worth waiting until after lockdown now as they only have a limited selection online and there were more choices in-store. I found two medium-sized Flippables in TK Maxx for quite a reasonable price! Tegan the reindeer was £9.99 (I think she cost more because of Christmas coming up) and Charmed was reduced to £8.00. There were also other Flippables available and medium Beanie Boos too.

I also found both Asha and Orson Beanie Boos and Arctic and Freckles from the Beanie Babies range in Poundland for £2 each!

The only shame was that in my local Poundland they have stopped selling Mini Boos! The was a bit of a disappointment as they were only £1 each and I was looking forward to collecting them! Oh well, you win some, you lose some!

Today, I’ve been spending some time on Beanie requests that aren’t yet on the website. I apologise that I haven’t had chance to reply to your emails yet, but I will try to shortly later today. But in any case, the emails I have got through, just to let you know the Beanies you couldn’t find have now been added to the database. Hopefully I’ll get a bit more time later on today to add a few more in as well.

Have a great Monday folks and Happy Collecting!

Claire’s exclusive Beanie Boos update

Monday, November 2nd, 2020

Hi everyone!

I previously mentioned about three new Claire’s exclusive Beanie Boos that had been announced in France at the end of September. They included a chevron-patterned Koala, a bright pink Kangaroo and a shiny blue-silver dragon.

If you hadn’t already heard, their names have been confirmed as Holly the dragon, Kora the koala and Rory the kangaroo. I have included their pages in the database, but I apologise for the poor quality of the images as these were the only ones I could find!

So far, I’m not sure when they will be released as this is the only information I can find on them, so if you have spotted these three in-store, please get in touch!

Anyway, hope you all have a great Monday and stay safe!
