Beanie Baby/Buddy Variations

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2021

Hi everyone!

Today is a very hot and sunny day, so I’ve been adding more Beanie requests to the website. I have had a lot of requests through recently, so if your request isn’t up there yet, it will be soon.

I was looking through my collection and one thing I’ve always loved about Ty Beanies was all the different variations, especially with the older style Beanie Babies/Buddies.

For example, the Roam Beanie Baby (pictured below) is brown, yet the Roam Beanie Buddy is white and has longer, scruffy fur on his back.

Another example of this is with the Batty Beanie Babies. Batty was released in either brown and tie-dyed colour variations as a Beanie Baby, but the Beanie Buddy versions (pictured below) were available in a brown/mocha rose and a black colour.

Beak is another example where the Beanie Baby and Beanie Buddy look very different from one another. The Beanie Baby version is made from a tie-dyed, textured material but the Beanie Buddy is covered in fluffy fur.

There were also name-change variations, like the Tabasco/Snort Beanie Babies and Doodle/Strut the rooster, which were both changed due to lawsuits.

What are your favourite Ty Beanie variations? Leave a comment below!

Massive Beanie haul!

Friday, May 7th, 2021

Hi guys!

I hope you’ve had a great week! I just wanted to share with you all my latest Beanie haul!

It started off with three Beanies from The Magical Gift Boutique, who are a fantastic shop for buying Beanies based in the UK. I saw that they had the suit-wearing Mr. Bean teddy Beanie Baby back in stock and, being a long-time lover of the TV series, Mr. Bean, I had to have him! I was lucky too as later that day, they had sold out again! I also ordered Gertie and Faye (the unicorn fox) along with him.

I have to say that Gertie is actually better in real life than I first thought. She was one of those mad Beanie Boos that I wasn’t too sure about, but now I actually love her craziness!

Last weekend, I also had some luck in Clinton’s as they had a 20% discount on Ty products. I took advantage of that and bought Kate, Fredrick, Lola and Marshall (Paw Patrol). Marshall I bought for my Paw Patrol-loving daughter’s collection.

I had better success in the charity shops this time too, managing to grab a Waddles Mini Boo, two Jingle Beanies (Holiday Teddy 2003 and Toboggan) and the beautiful Rafaella.

Rafaella is part of the Attic Treasures collection and she reminds me of the Shakespeare play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. She could easily be one of the fairies from the play. I think she is one of my favourite finds this week.

I also bought Darla, who arrived in the mail earlier this week.

As you may know from a previous post, I have been trying to collect the dragon Beanie Boos. Now I can add Darla and Kate to that set. Yes, I know Kate is TECHNICALLY a Flippable, but I’ve included her anyway since Flippables are pretty much glammed-up Beanie Boos. This is my dragon collection so far:

Now I just need Cinder, Spectra and Merlin to complete the small dragon Beanie Boos.

I also bought an adorable little bear called Cody. He came from a wonderful charity called the Folly Wildlife Rescue who do fantastic work rescuing injured and orphaned animals and birds all year round.

Cody, like most Attic Treasures has jointed limbs that can be posed. So he can wave to you, like this!

He’s just so lovely and fuzzy that I couldn’t resist him. I love the original Attic Treasures as they have so much personality.

Finally…my latest Beanie Boo which I have been wanting for a while now….

Loy!

I can’t believe I finally have this little guy!

Loy is a Japanese exclusive Beanie Boo, and features an additional Japanese hang tag with the most adorable picture on it!

His red Ty hang tag is written in English with the birth date of 10th November and his poem reads as follows:

No truer companion will you ever find
I’m loyal and loving to all of mankind.

I’m so happy I finally have Loy in my collection as he was the only one available in the UK at the time!

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?
