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!

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!

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?

Spring has Sprung! – Introducing the new Ty Beanies for 2023!

Thursday, February 2nd, 2023

Hi everyone!

A lot has been going on around here lately. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and recently Ty announced this year’s selection of 2023 Valentine’s Day Beanies!

We have also added the brand new Beanie Birthday Finder feature to the website to help you find out which Beanies have Birthdays on a specific day!

Now for some more exciting news…

Introducing the new, upcoming Ty Beanies for Spring 2023!

There is a great selection this year and I’m really excited get hold of them!

The Easter/Spring collection

Ty have released a great selection of specific Spring/Easter-themed Beanie Boos and Beanie Bellies this year. Following on from the 2022 bunnies, April, May and Spring, there are three more bunnies to collect! They are called Peridot, Hyacinth and Bluford and I just love their springtime colours! I wonder if Ty will release any more Easter bunnies in Spring 2024 to add to this particular collection?

Ty Beanie Bellies Easter Bunnies for 2023 - Peridot, Hyacinth and Bluford

What I love about these cute little bunnies is they give off nostalgic vibes of the old 90’s Easter rabbits, Hippie, Hippity, Hoppity and Floppity. I would love to see a tie-dyed version of these rabbits akin to Hippie as I loved that pastel-coloured, rainbow bunny!

There are also two new Easter Beanie Boos!

Meet Corwin and Hops!

I am so in love with Hops! He is so colourful and bright and I adore his sparkly blue eyes!

Corwin and Hops Ty Beanie Boos

I also think little Corwin is just the cutest! I’m glad Ty have decided to switch up the design of the traditional Easter chick this year a little and feature him sitting in his very own eggshell!

There are also a couple of new Beanie Balls available for Easter. Ty have released an adorable chick and sheep called Eggy and Baasby which would make the ideal gift for Easter.

Eggy and Baasby Ty Beanie Balls

More Ty Beanies for 2023…

Ty have also announced an awesome range of brand new Beanie Boos, Beanie Bellies and Beanie Balls for this year!

I’ll show you a selection of my favourites and put a full list at the bottom for you to browse through.

Honeycomb

Honeycomb Ty Beanie Boo

Honeycomb is definitely among my favourites from the new 2023 range. I love how fluffy she is around her face and her cute little tongue as well as the airbrushing details on her eyes.

There seems to be a bit of a theme going on this time with the new “cheeky” faces, as you will see with another of my favourites…

Sherbet

Sherbet Ty Beanie Balls

Sherbet is another example of the new style of face this year. He is part of the Beanie Balls (previously Ty Puffies) range.

This range of Beanies are weighted at the bottom and fall on their feet if you throw them in the air.

I love Sherbet’s cheeky expression and there appears to be a bit of a cutesy, kawaii vibe going on at Ty at the moment as there are a few additions with a similar style.

Next up…

Snapper

Snapper Ty Beanie Bellies

How adorable is this little guy?!

Snapper is quite possibly one of my favourites this year so far! I’ve been hoping Ty would make another frog Beanie.

What I really love about Snapper is his yellow, webbed feet and huge, beaming smile that is sure to cheer you up if you’re having a bad day!

Zinger

Zinger Ty Beanie Balls

Zinger is another addition to the Beanie Balls range. He is adorable little bee, made even cuter by his rosy-pink, airbrushed cheeks and tiny red nose!

Lillibelle

Lillibelle Ty Beanie Bellies

Lillibelle is an adorable shade of cotton candy pink with matching whiskers and paw pads!

Those who know me will know that I love cats and I’m really happy to see loads of kitties available this year!

There is another cat I’m also looking forward to getting hold of…

Morgan

Morgan Ty Beanie Bellies

Morgan is the purrfect partner for Lillibelle. She is a smokey-grey colour with beautiful purple eyes. I particularly love the airbrushing to make her eyes look more intense. She also has cute, pink paw pads like Lillibelle.

Full list of Ty Beanies announced for 2023

There are way too many gorgeous Beanies to mention above, so I’ve limited it to just a few of my favourites. Below you can find the full list of Ty Beanie Boos, Beanie Bellies and Beanie Balls that have been revealed.

Ty Valentine’s Day Beanies announced for 2023!

Tuesday, November 29th, 2022

Hi everyone!

Christmas is just around the corner and lots of gorgeous, Winter-themed Beanie Boos, Beanie Bellies, Beanie Balls and Squish a Boos are now available!

Although, some more upcoming releases have now been announced…the Ty Valentine’s Day Beanies!

These Beanies won’t be available until 2023, however let’s take a look at what will be released next year.

Beanie Boos

There are three new Valentine’s Day Beanie Boos in the pipeline.

The first of these is Milena, a beautiful kitty with pale grey and pink patches. She holds a sparkly pink heart just for you!

Next, we have Beau. Beau is a Dalmatian dog with bright pink hearts for spots and a bright pink patch on her face. Her eyes have a sleepy expression that make her look adorable.

Finally, we have Esme. She is a cute little panda carrying a shiny, bright pink heart.

Beanie Bellies

Next up, we have the new Valentine’s Day Beanie Bellies!

The first of these is Heartly, the adorable little poodle. She is white with gorgeous pink fur on top of her head, on the tips of her ears and around her ankles.

Finally, we have Desi. Desi is a sweet white bear with red ears and paws. She carries a bright red heart in her paws.

Squish a Boos

The only Valentine’s Day Squish a Boo that has been announced for next year is a pink unicorn named Francy.

She is a pale pink colour with a twisted, pink and silver horn. She will be available in a medium 10″ size and a large 14″ size.

My thoughts…

I think my favourites from the Valentine’s range have to be Milena and Heartly. I love the colours on Milena (plus I’m a huge cat lover) and Heartly just looks so cute!

New Halloween and Christmas Ty Beanies for 2022!

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2022

Hi everyone!

Just in case you hadn’t already heard, Ty have announced the brand new Halloween and Christmas Beanies for 2022….and they’re so adorable!

Last year we didn’t have any new Halloween or Christmas Beanie Boos, only Squish a Boos. These were great, but I would have loved some new Beanie Boo designs.

However, this year Ty have more than made up for the lack of 2021 Seasonal Beanie Boos with both Halloween and Christmas Beanie Boos, Beanie Bellies, Squish a Boos and the brand new Beanie Balls (previously Ty Puffies)!

Here is the low down one some of my favourites. I will include a full list at the end of the post.

Salem

Salem the Cat Ty Beanie Balls

Salem is part of the Beanie Balls product line, which is the recently renamed Puffies range.

I particularly like how Ty have given him green eyes to stand out from the black of his fur. I also was a big fan of Sabrina the Teenage Witch in the 90’s (the cat happened to be called Salem), so I’ve got to love this guy just for that.

Hocus Pocus and Tatters

Hocus Pocus and Tatters Ty Beanie Bellies

I’ve included Tatters and Hocus Pocus together as they look very similar, their birth dates are only one day apart and the appear to have the same poem according to the Ty Calendar.

I love that we are now getting some Seasonal Beanie Bellies, as I really like this product line.

Speaking of Halloween Beanie Bellies, the next spooky Beanie could possibly be one of my favourites of the year…

Bearla

Bearla the Vampire Bear Ty Beanie Bellies

There are a few things I really like about Bearla. Firstly, she’s a Vampire bear, which is pretty cool in itself. Secondly, her Birthday is actually on 31st October, which makes her truly feel like a Halloween Beanie. Finally, I love that she wears a cape. Also, I think her name is a nod to Bella from the Twilight movies.

Morticia

Morticia the Cat Ty Beanie Boo

There are two Halloween Beanie Boo cats this year. As you may already know I’m a big fan of cats, so I’m happy to see this.

It was hard to choose which cat to put on this list, as they’re both too cute, but in the end I chose Morticia, partly because she is named after the Addams Family character, but also because of her wacky colours which I absolutely love!

The other Halloween cat is called Oleander, and although he is really cute too, I had to go with Morticia.

Nordic

Nordic the Dog Ty Beanie Bellies

How could I NOT put Nordic on this list?!

Not only is he ridiculously adorable in his nordic-style hat, but his poem made me feel really sorry for him! The poem reads:

I saw presents under the tree.
They’re all you and none for me.
You’re afraid I might sneak,
Down the stairs for a peek.

How could anyone not give this little guy a present?! That’s just mean!

Gnorbie

Gnorbie the Gnome Ty Beanie Balls

I’m surprised that Ty didn’t jump on the “Gonk” bandwagon sooner! It’s about time a little gnome was introduced and Gnorbie looks just perfect for Winter in his bright red outfit.

Crispin

Crispin the Gingerbread Man Ty Beanie Bellies

Crispin is another of my favourites this year. Not only does he have the most gorgeous green eyes, but I love the striped “icing” finishing off his edges. He looks so yummy, I could eat him all up! Sorry Crispin!

Noel

Noel the Penguin Ty Beanie Boos

What I love about Noel is that he can’t decide whether he’s a penguin or a Christmas tree. Maybe he’s a both? But he looks so cute in his little costume and the star on top is the perfect finishing touch.

New Halloween Beanie Boos for 2022!

Wednesday, May 4th, 2022

Hi everyone!

I hope you’re having a lovely week wherever you are in the world! In the UK, we have just had a Bank Holiday weekend. The weather was nice enough on the Saturday that we were able to get out and about in nature, which made a lovely change.

Roam Beanie Baby at Keppel's Column, Rotherham

Anyway, the reason for this post is that I have some exciting news to share with you all…

There will be new Halloween Beanie Boos this year!

Yes, you heard that right! New stock photos have emerged with four new spooky Beanie Boo designs!

After last year’s disappointment that there were no Halloween Beanie boos for 2021, this is welcome news for us collectors!

The first of these new designs is a dog Beanie Boo wearing a pirate hat.

Pirate Dog Beanie Boo - Halloween 2022

How cute is this little pirate pup?! His hat has a skull and crossbones design on the front and he looks ready for trick-or-treating!

Next up is the first of two bat designs.

This little cutie is jet black with gorgeous green eyes and matching, glittery green feet. His ears and wings and covered in purple-pink glitter.

There will also be another bat, similar in appearance but with sparkly orange ears, eyes, wings and feet. both bats have tiny white fangs.

Finally, one of the cutest (in my opinion) Halloween Beanie Boos this year…

This adorable little arachnid has a fluffy body covered in orange and black zebra stripes. He has orange and black, striped legs and tiny, white fangs. His glitter eyes look like they will be a similar colour to Radar’s eyes.

I think out of all the new designs, the pirate dog and spider are my favourites, but they’re all really cute.

As of yet I don’t have any other information on them (names, poems, etc), so I haven’t added a page for them on the database yet, but I will update when this information becomes available.

Do you like the new Halloween Beanie Boos? If so, who is your favourite? Leave a comment below!

Beanie News Roundup – January 2022

Wednesday, January 12th, 2022

Hi everyone!

Sorry its been a while since my last post. Christmas and New Year have taken up a lot of my time with visiting family and then I caught a cold (thankfully not Covid) when I got home and had to take some much needed rest.

So what’s been going on recently in the Beanie world…

Well actually, a LOT!

The new design of Beanie Babies have been released and Ty has announced that they are called Beanie Bellies! It’s a little confusing as they still have a Beanie Babies hang tag, but maybe they will get their own hang tag one day.

The Beanie Bellies that are currently available are Wilfred, Duncan, Ace, Skylar, Clawdia, Ying, Miso and Mitzi.

New Beanie Bellies 2021

There’s some more good news too. According to the Ty Calendar, it looks like we are going to get more Beanie Bellies!

Three that stand out are Mitch the otter, Ruggles the dog, and Thunder the husky (pictured below).

New Beanie Bellies 2022

Aren’t they adorable?!

I’m still waiting for the Beanie Bellies to arrive in the UK (you guys in the USA are so lucky!), but from the pictures I’ve seen, I’m as excited for this range as I was for Beanie Boos!

There have also been loads of Beanie Boos announced (I’ll list them all in another post shortly). One that has caught my eye is Becca. She appears to be a “girlfriend” for Binky!

Becca the Bush Baby Beanie Boo

She is very much like Binky but is made from pink and purple fabrics in place of the brown colour palette that Binky has.

There are also going to be more Squish a Boos and Ty Puffies coming this year and they all look so cute!

I won’t go into the full details of them just yet (again, I will list them fully in another post), but my favourite of all these is Nessa.

Nessa Squish a Boo

Nessa is a brightly coloured caterpillar who is too cute for words!

Looking at the calendar, she will be available in a medium and large size. So far there doesn’t appear to be a small size, but who knows in the future!

What do you think of the new Beanie Bellies range? Are you excited for the new range of Beanie Boos, Puffies and Squish a Boos? Leave a comment below!

New Teenie Beanie Boos in McDonald’s for Christmas 2021!

Saturday, December 18th, 2021

Hi everyone!

Just a heads up that McDonald’s (in the UK at least) are now running a Teenie Beanie Boo promotion!

I wasn’t even aware of this promotion and only came across it after ordering a Happy Meal for my daughter. I couldn’t believe my luck when I opened up the box and spotted the Ty heart on the smaller box inside!

Inside was a cute little white seal wearing a red hat, covered in a white fish pattern. She has embroidered, green eyes instead of plastic eyes like previous Teenie Beanie Boos. This is because McDonald’s in the UK have stopped making plastic Happy Meal toys. This may explain why the previous promotion never arrived in the UK.

This cute little seal is called Sally. Her Birthday is on October 5th and her poem reads as follows:

In the month of December,
you’ll hear me squeal.
It’s almost Christmas,
I’m one happy Seal!

So far, I’m only aware of the five Teenie Beanie Boos in the top picture and Sally the seal. If anybody has any further information, please comment below!
