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?

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?

Beanie Baby Review – Jaden the Cat

Sunday, January 20th, 2019

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a great weekend!

Yesterday I set out hunting for a new Beanie Boo for my collection, but instead, I just had to bring this little guy home!

Jaden Beanie Baby

This is Jaden the Siamese Cat. Although he looks like a Beanie Boo, he is actually part of the Beanie Babies range!

Jaden has incredibly soft, plush fur that is light beige in colour, except for his face, paws, ears and tail, which are more of a chocolate brown.

Jaden Beanie Baby

It is so easy to confuse Jaden with a Beanie Boo as his eyes look very similar to the large eyes normally seen on them, although there are some differences. His eyes are ever so slightly smaller than a Beanie Boo’s. Here is a picture of Jaden next to one of my Beanie Boos, Stripes the Tiger to demonstrate.

Jaden Beanie Baby and Stripes Beanie BooStripes’ eyes are about a 1/4 of an inch bigger than Jaden’s, although they are still glittery. The bright blue eyes were what drew me to get Jaden instead of another Beanie Boo as they stand out from the dark brown of his face. I also love his little peach coloured nose.

Jaden Beanie Baby Tag

Jaden has a 19th generation Beanie Baby swing tag with the word, “Original” in holographic foil, although I have also seen him with a 20th generation swing tag.

Inside his tag, he has the following poem:

Catnip is my favorite thing
I love it even more than string!

His Birthday is on 13th February.

Jaden Beanie Baby PoemI’m so happy to have this Beanie Baby in my collection, as those who know me will know I’m a huge lover of cats, and this little Beanie was just too cute to resist!

Do you have Jaden in your collection?

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!

Latest Beanie Boo Teaser

Sunday, January 6th, 2019


Ty have posted this picture on their Facebook page just to tease us!

Apparently there are going to be some new releases coming soon! I can’t wait to see what they have in store!

There are some speculations around on the internet, and I possibly have a clue what the Beanie Boo in the picture will turn out to be. I won’t spoil the surprise, but all I can say is that if it is what I think it is, I HAVE to have it in my collection!

Can you guess what Ty has up their sleeves?

Top 10 Halloween Beanie Babies

Friday, October 23rd, 2015

A few days ago I did a post where I compiled a list of my favourite ten Halloween Beanie Boos. In this post, I will be listing out my favourite ten Beanie Babies

As with before, this list is in no particular order.

1. BAT-e the Bat

bat-e

BAT-e was a Ty store exclusive Beanie Baby. He is similar in appearance (albeit a different colour) to the earlier, Batty the bat, with the inclusion of two tiny white fangs. I love the spooky black/orange combination of some Halloween beanies! His birthday is also on 31st October!

2. Alacazam the Dog

alacazam

Alacazam was released back in 2010 and with his birthday coming up in a week’s time, he’s soon to be five years old! This cute little dog has the same black/orange colour scheme as Bat-e and wears a witches hat costume.

3. Baron Van Pyre

baronvanpyre

Baron Van Pyre isn’t the first vampire bear Beanie Baby. He is almost identical to a previous vampire bear called Count. The only difference between them is Baron Van Pyre’s belt and bow-tie are made from red material and Count’s are purple. The only reason I chose Baron Van Pyre instead of Count is that I just love his name!

4. Fraidy the Cat

fraidy

Fraidy is one of my favourite Beanie Babies, let alone Halloween themed Beanie Babies. I don’t know what it is about her that I love. I think it might be the eyes. She has gorgeous, bright orange cats eyes that stand out from her black fur. Fraidy was released in 2000. It was also her birthday was 10 days ago, making her fifteen years old!

5. Tremble the Dog

tremble

Next up is Tremble. This little Scottie dog wears a cute purple dog coat. According to his poem, he is scared of Halloween, darkness, and all sorts of various things, which seems to make him appear cuter! His birthday is on Halloween, so he will be terrified when he turns eight years old next Saturday!

6. Ghostio the Ghost

ghostio

Ghostio is named after Romeo from the Shakespeare play, Romeo and Juliet. He carries a “trick or treat” bag ready to store goodies in on Halloween. He also has a girlfriend, Ghouliette, who is also a ghost.

7. Ghouliette the Ghost

ghouliette

You can’t have Ghostio without Ghouliette! This cute little girl ghost has an orange ribbon tied in her “hair”. She also holds a “trick or treat” bag, ready to go trick or treating with her boyfriend, Ghostio.

8. Hello Kitty with Bat Costume

hellokittybat

I’ve always loved Sanrio characters, so Hello Kitty had to make it on the list somewhere. This variation of Hello Kitty wears a bat costume, which is perfect for trick or treating. On her head, she wears a bright orange bow covered in black polka dots.

9. Scarem the Bat

scarem

This little bat is not to be confused with the Scarem from the previous Top 10 Halloween Beanie Boos list. Scarem was released back in 2007, making him eight years old. I love the contrast between his star and moon covered orange wings and his purple feet and ears.

And finally…

10. Frightful the Cat

frightful

Frightful was released back in 2006 and was exclusively available at Borders stores. This adorable little cat is made from the same fuzzy material of Fraidy. He wears a cute little witches hat with a tiny bat hanging from the top of it. I really love Frightful’s deep green eyes and how the colours on his belly look like a giant candy corn.

Today is National Bring Your Teddy to Work and School Day!

Wednesday, October 14th, 2015

teddies

As you can see from the title, today was National Bring Your Teddy to Work and School Day!

Ty have released many teddies over the years. Beanie Babies, Beanie Boos, Beanie Buddies, Attic Treasures, Ty Classic, etc, all have various teddies all in different styles and colours.

Some teddies are rarer than others, with the Billionaire bears fetching over $200-400 each!

Some were released for charity. Aware was released to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness.

There have been Christmas bears, like the 1999 Holiday Teddy, St. Patrick’s Day bears, like Clover, and Easter bears like Bonnet.

Ty even released some to mark that very special day that a boy or girl is born into the world.

Did you bring a teddy bear to work or school today?
