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 – Mukluk the Husky!

Wednesday, February 26th, 2020

Today is the 26th February, which means only one thing….

It’s Mukluk’s Birthday!

Mukluk is a mottled grey husky with a white face, belly and legs. His Birthday is on 26th February 2003 and his poem reads:

Just say “mush” and watch me run
I love the snow, it’s so much fun
And when the day is finally through
I’d love to cuddle up with you!

There are two versions of Mukluk: one version with white eyes and another with one blue eye, one green eye. Both versions have the same style number of 40031.

Aren’t they both so cute?!

The name “Mukluk” comes from the Arctic aboriginal word for any kind of soft boot used for cold weather. Traditionally, these were made from reindeer or seal skin, but now they are either made from traditional or modern materials.

Happy Birthday Mukluk! Do you have any of these two Beanie Babies?
