Flint Dragon Ty Beanie Boo Review

Hi everyone, I’ve just added a wonderful new Beanie Boo addition to my collection, Flint Dragon!

I ordered her from The Magical Gift Boutique and all I can say is that she looks so much better in real life than in the official stock images!

It also appears that Ty have given her a makeover! The original images I’ve seen posted by other collectors show her with a pink base fabric and covered in shiny scales. She also had bright pink wings covered in silver sparkles.

However, this latest one I have received has soft scales, not shiny ones and her wings are solid bright pink without sparkles, but are made from a kind of shimmery fabric.

I’m actually glad they’ve made this change as the pink fabric really looks amazing against her soft rainbow scales. I also found the shiny scales to be a bit scratchy and I prefer a softer feel.

The other change they seem to have made is the belly. The original Flint had a crackled, scale effect on her shiny belly. It also came in three different colour variations; pink, yellow and blue!

This one I have has a softer, shimmery belly in a yellow and blue colour. I’m yet to find out if other variations exist.

The wings and horns have also had a fabric change. The first versions had a shiny, almost spotted effect, whereas the horns on mine are still shimmery, but are more of a solid colour. The wing material has a slightly roughened pattern to it, which I actually prefer to the original!

Flint’s Birthday is on 24th November and her poem reads as follows:

Flint Dragon Beanie Boo 2024 Hang Tag

My thoughts on Flint the Dragon Beanie Boo…

I’m actually pleasantly surprised by the change in fabric on Flint. I actually prefer the softer Beanie Boos, so it was nice to see the foil scales have been removed.

I love the new belly material too, although I’m hoping that Ty have kept the three colour variations, as I love hunting for differences in Beanies.

She is so much better than I imagined her to be! Her stock images looked cute, but she is so much cuter in reality!

Flint Dragon is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

The Next Three Original Beanie Baby leaks!

Thursday, June 13th, 2024

New Original Beanie Baby leaks, Gus Penguin, Hudson Moose and Savvy Fox

Hi everyone! Have you heard about the next three new Beanie Baby leaks for the new “Original” Beanie Babies range?

All I know so far are their names, and I’m still awaiting images and more information on them, but I’m so excited to see these next three!

So far, what I do know is that their names will be Gus, Hudson and Savvy!

Gus Penguin

What I know so far is that Gus will be a penguin. I’m hoping that he will have a look akin to Waddle, but it will be exciting to see how he will turn out!

Hudson Moose

Hudson is going to be a new moose addition to the Beanie Babies range.

I get the feeling that he will probably be similar in appearance to Chocolate, at least I’m hoping so!

I’m hoping for a crazy colour combination, but I’ve seen a promo poster with a “Chocolate-like” moose, so he will probably be more of a natural colour palette.

Savvy Fox

Savvy is a complete unknown too. I’m kind of hoping that she will be an updated Sly, but maybe Ty have “outfoxed” me completely on this one!

Sorry, bad joke.

I’m interested to see how Savvy will turn out though. Whether she will have “natural” colours, or wacky colours. I’m hoping for the latter, but either will be wonderful!

My thoughts on the new Beanie Baby leaks…

I am loving the sound of these new Beanie Babies and would really like some more wacky colour combinations as they are my favourite. However, I get the feeling that Hudson will be more like Chocolate, which would also be awesome.

I can’t wait to add their pages to Beaniepedia, but I don’t have enough information just yet to create a page for them. Hopefully, that will change shortly.

I’m so excited to see how this set of three will turn out, so stay tuned for updates!

Halloween 2024 Beanie Boos and Beanie Bellies Leaks!

Friday, June 7th, 2024

Hi everyone! Have you seen the upcoming Beanie Boos and Beanie Bellies for Halloween 2024! These are the new leaked designs and I’m absolutely thrilled to share them with you!

There appear to be some really awesome Beanies this Halloween and I can’t wait to get hold of them!

So far I do not know their names, but here they are below.

Halloween Beanie Bellies Frankenstein

Ty Beanie Bellies Frankenstein Halloween 2024

The only time we’ve had a “Frankenstein” Beanie has been Frankenteddy and SpongeBob Frankenstein, so it’s awesome to have an ACTUAL Frankenstein’s monster.

Fun Fact: It’s a common misconception that Frankenstein was the name of the monster from the Mary Shelley book. Frankenstein was actually the CREATOR of the monster. The actual monster that he created was never given a name.

I love the detail on this one, like his prominent eyebrows and stitching on his face. He has lime green skin that goes with the purple of his eyes.

Halloween Beanie Bellies Pumpkin

Ty Beanie Bellies Pumpkin Halloween 2024

This pumpkin, monster-thingy is actually really cute! I’m not sure what he is supposed to be but I love his orange pumpkin head with a tiny green stalk. There is some lovely airbrushing detail on his face, giving it a shadow effect.

His body is orange and covered in black stripes like a tiger, but he has an orange tummy with a black pumpkin face.

I like that his “hands” are a green colour, making them different from his black feet.

Halloween Beanie Boo Black Bat

Ty Beanie Boo Black Bat Halloween 2024

It wouldn’t be Halloween without a Beanie Boo Bat!

This bat is very similar to the Halloween bat Beanie Boo from 2023 called Ophelia. The overall design actually hasn’t changed, but the eyes are now blue instead of green. The spiderweb pattern on the wings have also changed from red to white and her feet are now black instead of bright red.

I do love this sweet little bat though!

Halloween Beanie Boo Mummy Ghost

Ty Beanie Boo Mummy Ghost Halloween 2024

Again, this is another design that has been re-hashed from last year. This little ghost is basically Mumford without the orange stripes and his eyes have changed from green to orange.

I did like Mumford’s design though and sadly didn’t get him last year, so I would definitely get this little ghost mummy! How could I resist his little pet spider?!

Halloween Beanie Boo Black Cat

Ty Beanie Boo Black Cat Halloween 2024

I LOVE THIS CAT!!!

She is a mostly black cat with the most gorgeous pink patches! Her purple, orange and green eyes are ENCHANTING and she has the most adorable little purple nose! Her little green ears go well with her bright pink and black colouring too.

I seriously love everything about her and I hope I can get hold of her!

Halloween Beanie Boo Orange and Black Spider

Ty Beanie Boo Orange and Black Spider Halloween 2024

This spider has some of the hallmarks of last year’s spider, Charlotte. However, from this picture it looks like the legs and feelers are thinner and a slightly different shade of orange. They also look less fuzzy than Charlotte’s.

Maybe my Charlotte needs a friend?…

Halloween Beanie Boo Brown and Black Spider

Ty Beanie Boo Brown and Black Spider Halloween 2024

Ok, now this is a spider I really do want!

I love the colouring on this one! How the brown on his face fades into the rest of the black on his head and his black-tipped, brown legs look creepily cute!

I think this one has the potential to be my new favourite spider Beanie Boo!

And finally…

Halloween Beanie Boo White Spider

Ty Beanie Boo White Spider Halloween 2024.

Actually, I take that back…THIS could possibly be my favourite spider Beanie Boo!

OMG! Just look at that snowy-white body and white legs! Also, how cute are his sparkly purple eyes?!

He looks like he could be a little white jumping spider. Whatever he is, he is quite possible the cutest Beanie Boo spider EVER!

My thoughts on the Halloween 2024 Beanie Boos and Beanie Bellies…

I am LOVING the new Beanie Bellies! They are fun new designs that we haven’t had yet and the perfect addition to the Halloween range!

The Beanie Boos I’m mixed about. I LOVE some designs, like the white and brown spiders and the cat. However, I feel a few are very similar to last year’s designs and I wish there had a bit more variation.

I do like them though, because just look at them! They are very cute.

I will probably buy them anyway, especially the ghost and bat as I didn’t manage to get either Mumford or Ophelia last year.

Kodi the Beanie Baby Bear!

Thursday, June 6th, 2024

Kodi the Bear Beanie Baby

Hi everyone! It was my Birthday yesterday and I was given the most fantastic present…a Kodi the bear Beanie Baby!

I am so besotted with him! He has the sweetest little face with gorgeous, sparkly orange-gold eyes, which are large but not quite as large as that of a Beanie Boo.

He also has the most adorable smile in the world!

Kodi the Bear Beanie Baby

Who wouldn’t be cheered up by that little face?!

His fur is very soft, and an almost-black colour with hints of dark brown mixed in. I love his beige muzzle and inner ears against the dark of his fur, and his little beige paws.

Kodi the Bear Face

I think that Kodi is meant to be an Alaskan Kodiak Bear, just based on his name. Although, I’d say he has more of the colouration of an American Black Bear over that of a Kodiak Bear.

Kodi’s Hang Tag

He has a 19th generation Beanie Babies hang tag, but interestingly even though we are away in Europe right now (Bulgaria), he has the USA variation of this hang tag.

Kodi the Bear Beanie Baby Hang Tag

Kodi’s Birthday is on 7th February and his poem reads as follows:

When I scratch my back it is something to see
I’ll stand up and rub it against a tall tree!

Kodi the Bear Beanie Baby Hang Tag

There are not many places that sell Beanie Babies in Bulgaria, for instance, near us there is only one bookshop that stocks them. But, when they do sell them, they seem to put an import sticker on the hang tag over here, like the one on Kodi’s tag below…

Kodi the Bear Beanie Baby Bulgarian Import Sticker Hang Tag

Luckily, they haven’t put it over the actual poem this time (believe me this has been done before…), and it was stuck on the additional “Important Information” hang tags instead.

My thoughts on the Kodi Beanie Baby…

Kodi the Bear

Kodi is possibly one of my favourite “Beanie Boo-style” Beanie Babies and not just because he was given to me as a Birthday present! I’ve wanted him for so long, but just never got round to buying him for whatever reason.

He has the sweetest face and his fur is such a beautiful, luxurious colour.

Kodi is also available as a Ty Classic, which I don’t have yet, so one day I may have to get him a big brother!
