Beanie Baby Birthday – Chillingsly the Polar Bear

Monday, January 21st, 2019

Today is Chillingsly the Polar Bear’s Birthday!

Chillingsly was first released on 29th September 2006 into the Beanie Babies range.

He was a cute, fuzzy white polar bear wearing a Winter hat with pom pom tassels either side of his head, which he will need today as it is freezing!

Inside his swing tag reads:

Way up where the cold wind blows
And people wear their winter clothes
I’ll be there playing on my sled
With my warm knit cap on my head!

Chillingsly was retired only three months after his release date on 21st December 2006.

Do you have Chillingsly in your collection?

Today is National Winnie the Pooh Day!

Friday, January 18th, 2019

The 18th January is National Winnie the Pooh Day!

The day was named in memory of A. A. Milne, the original creator or Winnie the Pooh, as his birthday was on 18th January. The stories featured the yellow teddy bear, Winnie the Pooh and his adventures with his best friend, Christopher Robin, who was actually A. A. Milne’s son.

The character of Winnie the Pooh was inspired by a female black bear named Winnie who was kept at London Zoo during the First World War and who Christopher Robin was very fond of, so much so that he named his teddy bear after her!

Since the 1960’s, Disney have owned the rights to the Winnie the Pooh characters and re-designed him into a cartoon character along with his friends.

Since this is a Beanie Baby collector website, I have put together a list of a few of the Winnie the Pooh Beanie Babies that were released.

Winnie the Pooh Beanie Baby

This Beanie Baby was released on 1st January 2013! He is modelled on the Disney design of Winnie the Pooh. This was the second Winnie the Pooh Beanie Baby released.

Disney Sparkle Winnie the Pooh Beanie Baby

This is the Disney Sparkle version of Winnie the Pooh released in July 2013. His t-shirt has been re-designed using sparkly red fabric and he now has sparkly gold ears and feet.

Christmas Winnie the Pooh

This festive Winnie the Pooh wears a Christmas t-shirt instead of his plain red one. He also wears a striped red and green Christmas hat. This Christmas edition of Winnie the Pooh was exclusive to Walgreens.

Poopsie the Bear

Technically, this isn’t actually a Winnie the Pooh bear at all. This was one of the most controversial Beanie Baby bears ever released! Not only is the look of Poopsie a complete knock-off of Winnie the Pooh, the name is also remarkably similar! He was retired the year after his release.

What do you think of this list? Are there any other Winnie the Pooh Beanie Babies I’ve missed out?

Another new Beanie Boo spotted!

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

This little unicorn rabbit is called Begonia!

She is a brand new Beanie Boo and appears to be one of the animals that magically grew a horn, like Heather the Cat, Enchanted the Owl and Ramsey the Lion.

Her Birthday is on 6th April and her tag reads:

I was a bunny when I was born
but then I grew a shiny horn
I still can run and hop and play
It never ever gets in my way.

I think she’s adorable and I hope Ty release more unicorn animals!

Have you got Begonia yet?

Another new Beanie Boo alert!

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

This cute little chick Beanie Boo has been spotted on the internet!

It’s name is Megg and she appears to be a new Easter-themed Beanie Boo for 2019!

Her Birthday is on 15th March and her swing tag reads:

My rainbow shell I have to crack
So I can get a candy snack.

Megg appears to be available in both 6″ and 9″ sizes so far and also appears to be exclusive to Walgreens, although I can’t confirm that yet.

Have you spotted Megg yet?

We’ve had snow!

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

Today we had a bit of unexpected snowfall. Here’s Scorch demonstrating…

We’ve had nowhere near the amount of snow as some other parts of Europe have had though. To those of you who are in the middle of it all, I hope you are all well, and most importantly, stay safe.

It’s been a bit of a slow day here today, so I’ve spent some time updating the site. If you are on a page with a particular type of Beanie, for example a bear, and you want to see only bears, you are now able to filter all the bear Beanies that are currently on the site. The same can also be done for the release year and colour.

I have also added all of the available Flippables, so you can now add them to your collection. If I’ve missed any, please let me know!

Here’s hoping this snow finally ends!

Cherie is a real Beanie Boo!

Sunday, January 13th, 2019

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great weekend!

I’ve had a couple of people contact me to say that they have spotted Cherie in stores in the USA, so she is a real new release for Valentine’s Day!

I’m not sure if she’s available outside the USA yet, but I’ll keep a lookout for her!

I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who contacted me about Cherie, it really means a lot when people get involved with the website and help out with information.

Have you spotted Cherie yet?

New Beanie Boo Released? Or is it?

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

I’ve come across this little unicorn, apparently called Cherie, on the internet. Could this be a new Beanie Boo?

I’m not prepared to add it to the site yet as I have yet to confirm if it’s real or fake.

I’ve seen one unboxing video, but it doesn’t include a hang tag in the video so it could be a fake. It was also on an ended eBay listing, which looks like it was sent from China, so again I’m a little suspicious. The only other place I’ve seen it is on Aliexpress, again a dubious source.

The sources I’ve found it claim it to be a 2019 Valentine’s Day Beanie Boo, but until I get some more information I’d treat it with caution for now.

Can anyone provide any more information on this Beanie Boo?

Happy Humphrey Day!

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019


We’re halfway through the week now, so to cheer you all up, here’s Humphrey!

This is the Beanie Buddy version of Humphrey (as there’s no way I’d be able to afford the Beanie Baby, being one of the rarest in the world!).

He was one of the original nine Beanie Buddies released on 30th September 1998. The other eight original Beanie Buddies are Beak, Jake, Royal Blue Peanut, Quackers, Rover, Stretch, Teddy (cranberry colour) and Twigs!

I think he’s adorable and I’ve had him for just over 20 years now! (That makes me feel old…)

Do you have any Beanie Buddies do you have in your collection?

Could this be a new Beanie Boo?

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

This image has been floating around on the internet and it could be one of the new Beanie Boos that Ty has been teasing us about!

It appears to be a pink sloth, similar to Dangler, and she looks adorable!

I hope this is one of the latest Beanie Boos to join the group, and my collection!

What do you think of this latest teaser?

Happy Birthday Muffin!

Monday, January 7th, 2019

Today is Muffin’s Birthday!

Muffin is one of Ty’s Beanie Boo collection. She was released in January 2013 in three different variations. She was available as a small 6″ Beanie Boo, a medium 9″ Beanie Boo Buddy and a key clip.

Muffin was finally retired after four and a half years on 6th July 2017.

Have you got Muffin in your collection?
