Series 7 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies Announcement!

Wednesday, January 24th, 2024

Hi everyone!

I have some exciting news for you all…the latest series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies has been announced!

There are two familiar faces appearing as well as one new face! I will go through them all below.

Legs II

Legs II 30th Anniversary Ty Beanie Babies

Legs II is based on the original Legs Beanie Baby, which in turn was one of the original nine Beanie Babies!

The original Legs was a solid, bright green colour, whereas this updated version is more of a lime green with a pale pink belly.

Isn’t he adorable?!

Legs II is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Hope II

Hope II 30th Anniversary Ty Beanie Babies

Hope was one of my favourite bears, so I am so happy to see Hope II!

I love how Ty have gone with a pale grey, neutral colour for Hope II, and I’m glad they have kept her brown nose.

I think that this is the Beanie Baby I am looking forward to the most in this set.

Hope II is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

and finally…

Magenta II

Magenta II 30th Anniversary Ty Beanie Babies

From what I can see, Magenta II looks like she could be a brand new Beanie Baby! By that, I mean is that she isn’t based on a current Beanie Baby. The only thing I can think is that she could be something to do with New Face Teddy (Magenta), but I’m not sure about this.

I LOVE her bright pink ribbon covered in white polka dots!

Magenta II is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

My thoughts…

I adore this new series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

I think my favourite of this series may be Hope II, but I also love little Legs II and I love the colours on Magenta II. Oh, I can’t decide, they’re all so cute!

Take a look at the Valentine’s Beanies for 2024!

Thursday, January 11th, 2024

Hi everyone!

Very soon, we will be getting the new Valentine’s Beanies for 2024!

I’m very excited about these new releases as we will be seeing a brand new animal design never made by Ty before!

There will be some brand new Beanie Boos, Beanie Bellies and Squishy Beanies and from what I’ve seen, they all look so cute!

I’ll start with the Squishy Beanies…

Flirt

Flirt the Cat Ty Squishy Beanie

Flirt is an adorable squishy cat with a bright heart over her left eye. I really love her design and the stripes on top of her head, as well as her cute little whiskers.

Flirt will be available in a medium 10″ and large 14″ size.

Medium Flirt is available from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Large Flirt is available from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Beau

Beau the Dog Ty Squishy Beanie

Beau is based on a previous Beanie Boo, also called Beau.

She is covered in cute little hearts and has a heart over her right eye.

Beau will be available in a medium 10″ and large 14″ size.

Medium Beau is available from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Large Beau is available from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Three new Beanie Boos will also be released this month…

Gigi

Gigi the Monkey Ty Beanie Boo

Gigi is an adorable little pink monkey with gorgeous pink eyes! She carries a bright red, shiny heart just for you!

I love her adorable little smiley face that is certain to cheer you up!

Gigi is available from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Rory

Rory the Dog Ty Beanie Boo

Just look at little Rory! How could anyone resist her cute little face?!

I adore the colour combination of pink and white and her bright pink spots. She also has the sweetest little white eyebrows over her glittery pink eyes.

Rory is available from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Bubbles

Bubbles the Octopus Ty Beanie Boo

Check out adorable Bubbles!

This little octopus has a pale pink body and tentacles and she is covered in bright pink hearts. Her purple eyes are just gorgeous!

Bubbles is available from The Magical Gift Boutique!

And now for the Beanie Bellies!

Valerie

Valerie the Bear Ty Beanie Bellies

Little Valerie is so sweet that she is covered in bright red kisses!

Her nose is heart-shaped and she has red paw pads with “XO” on them, meaning “hugs and kisses”.

Valerie is available from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Sprinkles

Sprinkles the Cow/Bull Ty Beanie Bellies

I LOVE Sprinkles!

I think he might be a bull, just because the previous Beanie Bellies cow, Herdly, had udders!

He has the cutest little tuft of pink fur on top of his head and carries a bright red heart.

Sprinkles is available from The Magical Gift Boutique!

And finally…

Locky

Locky the Axolotl Ty Beanie Bellies

Locky is quite possibly my favourite Beanie Bellies design so far this year!

I’m so glad that Ty have finally released an axolotl, as I think a lot of people have been asking for one, myself included!

I ADORE her pink-fringed, shiny frills and tiny hands and feet!

Locky is available from The Magical Gift Boutique!

My thoughts…

I think my favourite Beanie of the 2024 Valentine’s Day releases has to be, hands down, Locky! I love that there is a brand new animal design and she looks downright adorable!

A close second would have to be Sprinkles. He would make the perfect partner for Herdly!

To be honest, I love all of the Valentine’s Beanies this year!

Take a look at Series 6 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

Monday, December 11th, 2023

Hi everyone!

Some exciting news in time for Christmas!…the 6th series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies has been announced!

I have pre-ordered this set from The Magical Gift Boutique ready for their release as I expect this set to be quite popular!

Celebrate II

Celebrate II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Celebrate II was first released in the USA as part of series 5. However, he has now been released in series 6 for the UK!

I love the purple colour of Celebrate II and his little purple-pink ribbon. It feels like one of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies I MUST have in my collection because of his embroidered “30 Years” Ty heart.

Celebrate II is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Amber II

Amber II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Following on from last series’ Silver II, we will now be getting his counterpart Amber II!

I remember saying in a previous post how I would love Silver II to have his companion kitty, and I’m happy to say that these two will be reunited again!

The difference this time is that Amber II has been created in the design of the older style kitties, which I absolutely LOVE! It almost feels like Ty has been listening when I said I prefer the old-style cats of the 90s!

Amber II is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Bananas II

Bananas II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

The final addition to the Anniversary Beanie Babies will be…Bananas II!

Bananas II is named after the original Bananas, but has a design more akin to Schweetheart.

I love his colour combination of smoky grey and lilac. There is something quite calming about it, yet still retaining some of the crazy colour mixes that I love.

Bananas II is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

My thoughts…

I am so happy that Celebrate II is finally coming to the UK! I’ve been waiting for this Beanie to arrive since the last series, when it was announced that he would be part of the 5th series in the USA!

I’m so happy that Silver and Amber will be together again! I’m also glad that Ty went with the old-style, laying down design for her instead of a sitting position.

Bananas is a great addition to the 30th Anniversary range and I’m happy that we have another crazy colour combination again! I also love that he looks more like Schweetheart, rather than the original Bananas as I preferred that design overall.

I’m so glad that I’ve preordered this set from The Magical Gift Boutique as I think they will be very popular.

I’m slightly sad that with it being December, there are no Christmas-themed re-releases joining the gang, but I guess there weren’t any Halloween or Thanksgiving Anniversary Beanies either. But I absolutely love the new additions that we are getting!

New Ty Beanies arriving in November 2023!

Monday, November 13th, 2023

Hi everyone!

Have you “herd” the exciting news? There are more a-moo-sing Beanies out this month!

Sorry, I couldn’t help it!

Seriously though, there are some fantastic new releases out this month! I have three of them to show you already below that I bought from one of my favourite online shops, The Magical Gift Boutique!

NOVEMBER BEANIE BOOS AND BEANIE BELLIES IN MY COLLECTION SO FAR…

Hambone

Hambone the Pig Ty Beanie Boo

The first of these is Hambone.

How adorable is this little guy?! I just love the little grey patches they have given him, and his little piggy snout is just perfect!

His Birthday is on 27th February and his poem reads:

I like the spring
And when birds sing
I’ll sit a while
It makes me smile

Hambone is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Next up is…

Jenni

Jenni the Cat Ty Beanie Bellies

I’ve been so looking forward to having Jenni in my collection!

Not only are her pastel colours purrfect, she kind of reminds me of the original Peace bears and Sammy from the 90s. Obviously, she has the newer glittery button eyes, but the colours on each one are so different, that each one is unique!

Her Birthday is on 14th September and her poem reads:

Four soft little paws
Without the sharp claws
All pastel and pretty
A wonderful Kitty!

Jenni is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Herdly

Herdly the Cow Ty Beanie Bellies

Now, this is a Beanie Belly that I have been eagerly awaiting! Herdly the cow!

It’s been too long since we had a new cow Beanie, and Herdly is a fantastic new addition to the Beanie Bellies range!

I love her tiny horns and I think it’s brilliant that Ty have given great attention to detail by adding udders to her belly!

She is probably one of my favourites this year!

Herdly’s Birthday is on 16th July and her poem reads:

In the pasture where I graze
It’s the best on sunny days
On the days if there is rain
I stay in and eat my grain

Herdly is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

MORE BEANIE BOOS AND BEANIE BELLIES FOR NOVEMBER 2023!

The following Beanies, I don’t have in my collection just yet, but are either available already, or will be released later this month…

Fisher

Fisher the Penguin Ty Beanie Boo

Fisher is a delightful little penguin with pale grey feathers. She is so adorable and I’m glad that Ty have created a slightly different design for her rather than a traditional black and white penguin.

Fisher is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Rukus

Rukus the Skunk Ty Beanie Bellies

Rukus is probably one of my favourite Beanie Bellies this November! She reminds me a little of Flower the Skunk from the Disney movie, Bambi.

I love how there are little extra details, such as her paw prints have been adapted to look a little bit like skunk tracks and she has extra fluffy fur on her head and tail.

Rukus is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Randi

Randi the Rottweiler Dog Ty Beanie Bellies

Randi is a gorgeous Rottweiler dog with lovely, tan-coloured details on her eyebrows, face and legs.

I love her cute little black paw pads and how her glittery golden eyes stand out from her black fur.

Randi is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

NEW MEDIUM SIZE FOR BEANIE BELLIES NOW AVAILABLE!

You heard that right! Ty have released a new 23cm (9″) size to the Beanie Bellies range!

So far, I have Mango and Stubby on pre-order that I will show you when they arrive.

Medium Mango the Cat and Medium Stubby the Monkey Ty Beanie Bellies

Both Mango and Stubby, and more medium size Beanie Bellies are available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Some of the medium Beanie Bellies that have been announced so far are:

Mango (Medium)
Stubby (Medium)
Tink (Medium)
Lloyd (Medium)
Penelope (Medium)
Duncan (Medium)
Syklar (Medium)
Bumper (Medium)
Snapper (Medium)

I’m really interested to see how the material differs on a larger size, especially with a “fluffier” Beanie Belly like Stubby. I can’t wait to show you all how they look in reality!

MORE BEANIE BALLS AVAILABLE THIS NOVEMBER!

There are four new Beanie Balls designs also available this November!

Pigasso

Pigasso the Pig Ty Beanie Balls

I just love the pastel tie-dye colours on Pigasso! And how adorable are those glittery blue eyes and that little pink piggy snout?!

Pigasso is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Gilly

Gilly the Frog Ty Beanie Balls

Gilly is a sweet, green frog who would make the perfect friend for Snapper!

I love his bright green colour and his matching, glittery button eyes!

Gilly is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Clawsby

Clawsby the Tiger Ty Beanie Balls

Another welcome addition to the Beanie Balls range is Clawsby!

He has a cute little round, striped body and I love the white detail around his face!

Clawsby is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

And finally…

Cruiser

Cruiser the Turtle Ty Beanie Balls

Cruiser is a bright green turtle with the sweetest face!

He carries his brown shell on his back and has the most gorgeous, glittery gold eyes!

Cruiser is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

MY THOUGHTS…

I am absolutely loving the new November Beanies!

The new Beanie Bellies are absolutely fantastic and I’m over the moon with the new designs!

I think my favourite of the new regular-sized Beanie Bellies is probably Herdly, closely followed by Rukus. Although to be honest, it was hard to pick a favourite this time as they are all so cute!

I am looking forward to seeing the new medium-sized Beanie Bellies in real life! And I can’t wait for Mango and Stubby to arrive (and I may sneakily order a Penelope at some point!…)

The Beanie Balls are great too! I think my two favourites would have to be Pigasso and Gilly.

Series 5 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies available soon!

Wednesday, October 18th, 2023

Hi everyone!

Who else is excited for the upcoming release of the fifth series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies?

I’m especially happy that the UK will be getting three Beanies instead of only two like in the last series! In the last series, we only got Signature Bear II and Nanook II, whereas the USA had Blue Teddy II, Nanook II and Zip II.

This time, both the USA and UK will get three Beanies! Hooray!

So, which Beanie Babies will be available in this series?

Silver II

Silver II the Cat 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Silver II is one of the latest 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

She is based on the original Silver Beanie Baby. I haven’t seen it yet, but since all the other poems so far have matched the originals I’m guessing her poem will be as follows:

Curled up, sleeping in the sun
He’s worn out from having fun
Chasing dust specks in the sunrays
This is how he spends his days!

The original Silver (and his counterpart Amber) were based on two orphaned kittens who were adpoted by Ty Warner.

I wonder if one day there may be an Amber II….I hope so.

Dotty II

Dotty the Dalmatian Dog 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Dotty II is based on the original Dotty.

Both Beanies look incredibly similar, The only main difference will be that the newer Anniversary version will have softer, plush fur.

Again, I’m assuming that her poem will be as follows:

The Beanies all thought it was a big joke
While writing her tag, their ink pen broke
She got in the way, and got all spotty
So now the Beanies call her Dotty!

Dotty is so cute, and I love her poem on how she “got her spots”.

Blue Teddy II

Blue Teddy II the Bear 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Blue Teddy II is only part of the UK series 5. He was already released in the USA as part of the fourth series.

This teddy is the most gorgeous bright blue colour. His rainbow ribbon suits him perfectly.

His Birthday is on 30th November (based on the USA release in the last series) and his poem is as follows:

Teddy wanted to go out today
All of his friends went out to play
But he’d rather help whatever you do
After all, his best friend is you!

Despite him being named “Blue Teddy II”, there was no original Blue Teddy and this is the first of his name.

And finally…

Celebrate II

Celebrate II the Bear 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Celebrate II will only be released in the USA this time round.

His Birthday is on 18th December and his poem is as follows:

Each year it seems we’ve just begun
Bringing your favorites one by one
That’s got to be the reason why
These 30 years quickly flew by

At the moment, it’s unknown whether he will arrive in the UK, but I will update you if he does.

My thoughts

I’m loving the new Silver II and Dotty II, but I wish there was a little more variety in colour.

I LOVE the bright colours from the earlier series. I loved the wacky colour combinations of Patti II, Peanut II and Squealer II. Even Nanook II was blue instead of grey.

I wish that Ty had made one of the Beanies in this series a bright colour, but that’s just my personal opinion and I do love the two Beanies that have been announced.

I also REALLY hope that they make an Amber II as a friend for Silver II…

Have you heard? The new Halloween 2023 Beanie Boos have been revealed!

Thursday, August 10th, 2023

Hi everyone!

More exciting news from Ty! We are currently awaiting the announcement for the next series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies. However, this year’s Halloween Beanie Boos have been announced for 2023!

There will be four new Beanie Boos available and they are freakily adorable!

See below for the new Halloween Beanie Boos!

Mumford

Mumford the Mummy Halloween Beanie Boo 2023

I can’t quite decide if Mumford is a mummy or a ghost. He wears bandages like a mummy, but has the shape of a ghost!

He is so adorable though, and made more so by the cute little spider pet he carries round with him! I love that his poem is all about his little arachnid friend too.

He is one of my favourite Halloween Beanie Boos this year!

Nightcap

Nightcap the Ghost Halloween Beanie Boo 2023

This is the second ghostly friend available this year!

Nightcap wears a large pointed, striped hat and he has a cute little gold tooth. His entire body is covered in silver sparkles, adding to his ghostly appearance.

I love his his sparkly orange eyes stand out from the white of his body.

Charlotte

Charlotte the Spider Halloween Beanie Boo 2023

Not to be confused with another Beanie Boo cat called Charlotte.

This eight-legged Charlotte is quite possibly named after the spider character from the book, Charlotte’s Web.

She is very cute (if you’re not arachnophobic) and I love the white detail underneath her eyes and her tiny, sparkly fangs. Her orange and black striped legs look very striking against her black body too.

And finally…

Ophelia

Ophelia the Bat Halloween Beanie Boo 2023

It wouldn’t be a Halloween Beanie Boo launch without a bat Beanie Boo!

Last year, we actually had two bats, Drizella and Mortimer. This time, we only have one but she is one of my favourite bats so far!

Her name is Ophelia and she is so adorable!

I absolutely love how her black, fuzzy body is broken up by the sparkly bright blue of her inner ears, her glittery green eyes and her bright red feet. Her sparkly black wings with a red spiderweb pattern also make a nice touch.

My thoughts on the 2023 Halloween Beanie Boos…

My favourite of this spooky bunch is probably Ophelia, followed by Mumford. I love Ophelia’s colouration and I think Mumford’s pet spider is so cute!

I’m a little sad that there are no Halloween cat Beanie Boos this year, but there is a good selection and we did have two cats last year, Morticia and Oleander.

Series 3 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies Announced!

Wednesday, July 12th, 2023

Hi everyone!

Great news! The third series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies have been announced!

Again, we see a set of three previously released Beanie Babies made with much softer fur and a few colour changes.

And here they are!

Series 3 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies. Photo: Ty.com

(Photo: Ty.com)

From the rumours I’ve heard, Snort II will be available to the US market, whereas the UK will get Peace II instead.

The two new Beanie Babies to join the gang will be Signature Bear II and Patti II.

Signature Bear II

Signature Bear II Beanie Baby

So far I’ve not managed to gain any information on a birth date or poem for the Signature Bear II.

From the picture, he appears to be a vivid bright green with a red ribbon and the red heart with Ty Warner’s signature seen on previous Signature bears.

Patti II

Patti II Beanie Baby

I’m really excited about this new version of Patti!

She was one of my favourite Beanie Babies, so seeing this amazing change in colour is great news! I love the bright tangerine orange of her body against her azure blue beak and feet.

I’ve made a calculated guess that her poem will be the same as the original, based on others in the 30th Anniversary range, but currently I’m not sure what her birth date will be.

My thoughts…

My favourite Beanie Baby in this latest series is definitely Patti!

I’m a little disappointed that there are only two new designs, but I’ll be happy if Peace II comes to the UK!

Series 2 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

Friday, July 7th, 2023

Hi everyone!

I’ve been away on holiday for a few days, so I’ve only just managed to get round to posting these up. At the moment, these little beauties are at my parents’ house as I am currently staying over in Bulgaria. However, my Dad (thanks again!) has sent me a few photos to look at before I get back to the UK.

Here they are…the second series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

30th Anniversary Beanie Babies. Left to right: Peanut II, Squealer II and Snort II

The second series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies includes Peanut II, Squealer II and Snort II.

Is it just me being nostalgic, or are the new Beanie Babies getting better with every new series?

I loved it when the 90’s Beanie Babies came out in crazy colours (I’m thinking of such Beanies as Patti, Inch and Chocolate) and I’m hoping we see more of these (watch this space…).

Peanut II Beanie Baby Hang Tag

The outer hang tag remains unchanged from the first series from what I can see from Peanut II’s tag (pictured above).

Take a look inside the hang tags…

Like the first series, the inner hang tag includes the same poem as the original Peanut, but the birth date has changed from 25th January 1995 to 25th April.

Peanut II inside hang tag

The birth date inside Squealer II’s hang tag has changed from 23rd April 1993 on the original Squealer’s tag to 23rd September. The poem remains the same.

Squealer II inside hang tag

And finally, Snort II’s birth date is now on 15th August instead of the original 15th May 1995.

So far, I don’t have the Peace II bear (hopefully that will change soon…). At first, he was thought to be a USA exclusive and Snort II a UK exclusive. However, this appears not to be the case as I have heard they are staggering the releases, with Peace II as part of the UK third series and Snort II as part of series 3 in the USA.

Left to right: Peanut II, Squealer II and Snort II

I ordered the third series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies from The Magical Gift Boutique in the UK, who once again have provided a fantastic service. Thank you!

My thoughts on series 3 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies…

I’m loving this new series as they are so bright and colourful! I love the bright purple of Peanut II, the addition of the lilac ears and tail to Squealer II and the red and yellow combination on Snort II.

I’m hoping we see more colourful additions!

What do you think of series 3? Leave a comment below!

More new Original Beanie Babies to be released!

Monday, June 12th, 2023

Hi everyone!

Following the huge success of the 30th Anniversary Original Beanie Babies, Ty have announced a further four Beanie Babies!

The first series consisted of redesigned versions of the Beanie Babies, Valentino, Bones and Bongo. The new versions are named Valentino II, Bongo II and Bones II.

They have now been officially retired by Ty on 2nd June 2023, although I have heard they can still be found in small retailers/candy stores.

They have proven to be incredibly popular, so Ty have now announced the release of a second series!

There will be four different designs in this set, again based on previous Beanie Babies, but who knows? If they are as popular as the first series was, maybe we could see some brand new designs (I hope so!).

The four Beanies announced so far are Snort II, Squealer II, Peanut II and Peace II. They are based on Snort, Squealer, Peanut and Peace respectively.

Snort II

Snort II is very similar to the original Snort design. However, he is made from a much softer, plush material and his hooves, snout and horns are yellow rather than cream coloured.

Squealer II

Squealer II is pale pink with a violet-blue snout, ears and curly tail. His design is not that different to the original version, but for some reason the violet colour change makes him look so much different.

Peanut II

Peanut II is very different in colour from the original. Saying that, Peanut was originally released in royal blue before her light blue colour. I really like her new fuchsia pink-purple colour.

Peace II

Peace II is very different to the original tie dyed Peace. He is a bright yellow colour instead and wears a rainbow ribbon. He still has the signature peace symbol embroidered on to his chest.

My thoughts on series II…

I’m really excited that Ty have decided to release a second series of the new Original Beanie Babies. Peace II and Peanut II are probably my favourites in the new series. However, I really hope that we see some brand new designs and that this will become the start of a new range of the older style Beanie Babies!

The Original Beanie Babies are Back!

Sunday, May 28th, 2023

Hi everyone!

I have some exciting news for you all…the Original Beanie Babies are back!

Ty have released three new “original” style Beanie Babies to mark the 30th Anniversary of Beanie Babies! They are essentially re-designed versions of previous older generation Beanie Babies that you will no doubt all be familiar with but with slight differences and made from a much softer material.

Bongo II

Bongo II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

The first of these is Bongo II. He is based on the original Bongo with a brown tail and even shares the same poem:

Bongo the monkey lives in a tree
The happiest monkey you’ll ever see
In his spare time he plays the guitar
One of these days he will be a big star!

However, his Birthday is different and on 4th January instead of 17th August.

Bones II

Bones II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Bones II is a lighter, caramel brown version of the original Bones. They are very similar in appearance but this version has very soft fur.

His poem is:

Bones is a dog that loves to chew
Chairs and tables and a smelly old shoe
You’re so destructive all would shout
That stopped, when his teeth fell out!

His Birthday is on 18th March instead of the original Bones’ Birthday of 18th January.

Valentino II

Valentino II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Valentino II is perhaps the most different from his original counterpart. The original Valentino was a white colour with a red ribbon and heart, but this has been changed to a bright red with a white ribbon.

Valentino II’s Birthday has been changed from 14th February to 6th February.

His poem however remains unchanged and is as follows:

His heart is red and full of love
He cares for you so give him a hug
Keep him close when feeling blue
Feel the love he has for you!

Where will the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies be available?

So far, Ty have stated that these will only be available in limited supply from selected small retailers. Each retailer will only receive 24 of each Beanie Baby and when they’re gone, they’re gone!

My thoughts on the new “original” Beanie Babies

As a child, I collected the original Beanie Babies back in the 90’s, so I’m extremely excited that I will hopefully be getting my hands on them all!

They have a nostalgic vibe about them but with the modern twist of being made with a softer material.

I am hoping that this is a sign that Ty will bring back the original Beanie Babies, and not only occasional/commemorative releases. I would love to see them re-release older Beanie Babies, for example, the Original Nine and maybe some of the cats (I’m thinking Chip or Prance!), but I would also love to see some new designs too!

All of this is just speculation though.

What do you think? Will Ty bring back the original Beanie Babies product line? Or is this just a one-off release?
