Happy Halloween from Beaniepedia!

Saturday, October 31st, 2020

Hi everyone!

Just a quick message to wish you all a Happy Halloween! Have a safe, spooky time!

Today, we took a trip out to one of our favourite places in the UK…Dartmoor! Well known for it’s ghost stories and spooky tales. Batty and Roam came along for the ride too!

Our trip was a bit short-lived because the weather turned bad, but we had a great day out nonetheless.

Also, Pandora, Spike and Radar didn’t want to be left out of the Halloween fun! Love these little Boos!

Happy Halloween folks, and stay safe! Let us know your favourite Halloween Beanies in the comments below!

Beanie Baby Birthday – Zeus!

Friday, October 23rd, 2020

Hi everyone! I hope you are all safe and well!

Well it’s a little bit of a grey, damp day here at Beaniepedia HQ today so I thought I’d look up which Beanie had a Birthday today and I came across….*drum roll*….

Zeus the Moose!

I just thought this little guy looked so adorable! He reminds me in some ways of an updated Chocolate, one of the Original 9 Beanie Babies.

His Birthday is 23rd October 2002 and his poem reads as follows:

With mighty antlers on my head
It’s difficult to get in bed
But I sleep better, yes I do
When I am cuddled next to you!

I also just love the name Zeus, giving the impression that he’s this big, strong, almighty being, but really he’s this cuddly little thing just asking for a hug!

Have you got Zeus in your collection?

Mini Boos section now complete!

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020

Hi everyone!

I have been asked by a few of our members recently about adding more Mini Boos to the website as it was looking a bit bare. I had recently been focusing on adding Beanie Babies and other requests and was going to update it at a later date.

However, I have now updated the Mini Boos section of the website and I am pleased to say that it is now (as far as I know) complete! Please let me know if I have missed any out!

Above (along with the Batty photobomb) are the only Mini Boos I have so far as I mainly collect Beanie Babies and Beanie Boos, but aren’t they so cute?!

Do you collect Mini Boos? If so, which are your favourites? Let us know below!

It’s mid-week already!

Wednesday, October 7th, 2020

Well it’s the middle of the week again!

As you may be aware from my Facebook and Instagram pages, we recently got back to the UK from Bulgaria, and as such, we are now in quarantine for 14 days. I don’t know if it’s being quarantine, or being back in the UK with easier access to Beanies (Bulgaria doesn’t really have a market for them), I think I’ve gone a bit Beanie-crazy recently as I’ve managed to get hold of all three Halloween Beanie Boos, Radar, Pandora and Spike! Here they all are pictured with Roam below.

I can’t decide which is my favourite. At first, being a bit of a cat-lover, I thought it might be Pandora. I just love her green eyes and little witch’s hat!

But now, I’m torn between all three!

Radar has a round, fluffy body with little white highlights and I love the colour pattern on his wings and ears. His eyes are also a little different as they almost have a “glowing” look to them.

And Spike is also ultra-adorable!

He has these cute little dark circles under his eyes (almost like myself most days!) and his little smile cheers me right up!

As well as these cuties, I also have Bruni (with sound) on the way. The place I bought him from (The Magical Gift Boutique) kindly gave me the option to have one delivered later, even though I was away at the time, so he should be on his way to me shortly (yay!)

And finally, I have ordered two more Beanie Boos. Hope (who I was unable to get while I was away) and Chase (from Paw Patrol) are currently on their way to me. I’m not actually sure which colour nose my Hope will have, but I’m thinking maybe blue? Technically, one of these two isn’t actually for me – it’s my daughter’s Birthday coming up soon and she ADORES Paw Patrol – so that makes it a tiny bit better, but a few more Beanies have caught my eye since…

Have you bought any new Beanies recently? If so, what new additions do you have to your collections? Leave a comment below!

Have a great Wednesday!

New Claire’s Exclusive Beanie Boos!

Monday, September 28th, 2020

Hi everyone!

As it says in the title, there has been a sneak peek of three new Claire’s exclusive Beanie Boos!

The sign appears to be from Claire’s in France, but they may be European exclusives. I’m not sure just yet.

It looks like there is going to be a new koala with a similar design to Katy with a chevron pattern similar to Piper. I’m not too sure about this one, as we have literally just had Katy, and they just look too alike.

There will also be another Kangaroo, which looks a little bit like Kipper, but pink in colour with sparkly silver ears, hands and feet. It also appears that she will have a Joey in her pouch, just like Kipper. I know people have been wanting another Kangaroo, but to me it just looks too similar to Kipper except for the colour.

Last, but not least, there is going to be another dragon, similar to Cinder. This time, it will be a kind of icy-blue colour with hues of pale pink (kind of appropriate with Winter in the not-so-distant future). This dragon is possibly going to be my favourite of the three.

Their names are going to be Holly, Kora and Rory, but it’s not completely clear who is who. I suspect it will be left to right on the picture with the Kangaroo being Holly, Kora for the Koala and Rory the Dragon…but I could be totally wrong!

I first found out about these Claire’s exclusives from a video by YouTuber, Billyboo Adventures (go and check him out!) and in an email from one of our members (thank you!).

So far, that’s all I know about these three Beanie Boos. There has been no release date thus far and nothing much more is known about them just yet, but I’ll post an update if I find out anything further.

Have a great Monday and leave a comment below what you think about Holly, Kora and Rory!

It’s Friday!

Friday, September 25th, 2020

Hi everyone!

It’s that time of the week again! You guessed it…it’s Friday!

This week has been a mad one, but I’ve managed to get some more Beanies on to the database. I’ve mainly been focusing on email requests that I’ve received to add certain Beanies on to the site – if you have emailed me and I haven’t replied, I’m really sorry! I will try to get round to you, but I get so many emails!

The website is now nearing 3,000 Beanies on the database! That includes all Ty products, such as Beanie Babies, Beanie Boos, Flippables, etc.

The only problem with adding Beanies on to the site is that I’ve seen so many that I would like to get! There have been Beanie Babies from my childhood (I started collecting in the 90’s at the height of Beanie mania) and some newer ones that I have never even seen before!

Today, I came across this little guy and I think he’s going to be one of the next ones I want to add to me collection.

Meet Wiggy.

Wiggy is a cute sea lion with the ultra soft VelveTy fur! He looks a little like a Beanie Boo, but is actually part of the Beanie Babies collection.

His poem reads as follows:

On the pier I like to lay
Under the sun, I sleep all day!

Others that I have come across this week, via requests or just through searching are Opie (who I haven’t seen before but absolutely adore!), Seamore (for nostalgia purposes!) and Richie (a cute little beaver with buck teeth!)

Beanie Baby Birthday – Happy Birthday Koowee!

Thursday, September 24th, 2020

 

Hi everyone!

Today is 24th September, which means…it’s Koowee’s Birthday!

Koowee is a fuzzy grey koala bear with adorable fluffy white ears. He has the characteristic large, oval koala nose and little grey paws clasped together.

Koowee was an Australian/New Zealand exclusive Beanie Baby released back in July 2004. His poem reads as follows:

Eating Gum leaves, sleeping in trees
Relaxing in the Aussie Breeze
Watching as the branches sway
That’s how I like to spend my day!

Couldn’t you just cuddle this little cutie?!

Happy Birthday little guy!

The My Beanies area is now fixed!

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a good day!

A couple of people contacted me to let me know that if you have more than one page of Beanies in the “My Beanies” area of the website that you couldn’t access past the first page, meaning you couldn’t see all the Beanies in your collection. I just wanted to let you know that this issue is now solved!

If you have any further problems, please let me know!

Beanie News Recap

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020

Hi everyone!

I thought I’d do a bit of a recap on what’s been going on recently in the Beanie world!

Beanie Masks

I know these have been out for a while, but I wanted to cover them.

Ty have recently released a range of Beanie Boo masks! There are nine characters to collect, each representing a Beanie Boo.

The current designs are Kiki, Fantasia, Dotty, Slush, Giselle, Dangler, Owen, Bamboo and Coconut.

The masks are re-usable and have adjustable ear loops and a flexible nose bridge.

Halloween Beanie Boos

Now it’s September, it’s not long until Halloween!

Ty released these three awesome Halloween Beanie Boos for 2020. Let’s face it, we all need some new Boos to cheer us up with all that’s going on!

Their names (from left to right) are Radar, Pandora and Spike!

Winter Beanie Boos

As well as the Halloween Boos, this year’s Christmas Beanie Boos have also been announced!

From left to right, their names are Snowfall, Cheer, Chimney and Howlidays. Aren’t they all so cute?!

The Legoland Beanie Boo, Widget!

Finally, there was an unexpected Legoland exclusive, called Widget! He is supposedly some kind of Lego dog.

Interestingly he didn’t have the usual Beanie Boo eyes, which I’m not too sure about to be honest. But I suppose he’s kind of cute, in a weird way?

Hope you enjoy this news round-up!
