Happy Birthday Swirly!

Tuesday, March 10th, 2020

Today is 10th March, which just happens to be Swirly’s Birthday!

This adorable little snail was released back in 1999 and has recently received a bit of attention on TikTok causing it’s value to rise a little.

Swirly’s poem is as follows:

Carefully traveling, leaving a trail
I’m not very fast, for I am a snail
Although I go my own plodding pace
Slow and steady, wins the race!

Isn’t she just so cute! Happy Birthday little snail!

Have you recently come across Swirly on TikTok or do you have her in your collection?

Beanie Baby Birthday – Wallace the Bear!

Friday, January 25th, 2019

Today is Wallace’s Birthday!

Wallace was a Beanie Baby bear that was released on 31st August 1999. Here he is pictured below:

He is a teal coloured bear with the same soft, suede effect material as Fuzz the bear, another Beanie Baby bear released in 1999. Wallace wears a cute, red tartan scarf around his neck.

Wallace has a 5th generation swing tag. His poem has Scottish references and reads:

Castles rise from misty glens
Shielding bands of warrior men
Wearing tartan of their clan
Red, green and a little tan!

He was retired only four months after his release date on 23rd December 1999.

Wallace also has the same Birthday as Robert Burns, which is where Burns Night comes from, which is also today! So for those celebrating, Happy Burns Night!

Have you got Wallace in your collection?
