Series 7 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies Announcement!

Wednesday, January 24th, 2024

Hi everyone!

I have some exciting news for you all…the latest series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies has been announced!

There are two familiar faces appearing as well as one new face! I will go through them all below.

Legs II

Legs II 30th Anniversary Ty Beanie Babies

Legs II is based on the original Legs Beanie Baby, which in turn was one of the original nine Beanie Babies!

The original Legs was a solid, bright green colour, whereas this updated version is more of a lime green with a pale pink belly.

Isn’t he adorable?!

Legs II is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Hope II

Hope II 30th Anniversary Ty Beanie Babies

Hope was one of my favourite bears, so I am so happy to see Hope II!

I love how Ty have gone with a pale grey, neutral colour for Hope II, and I’m glad they have kept her brown nose.

I think that this is the Beanie Baby I am looking forward to the most in this set.

Hope II is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

and finally…

Magenta II

Magenta II 30th Anniversary Ty Beanie Babies

From what I can see, Magenta II looks like she could be a brand new Beanie Baby! By that, I mean is that she isn’t based on a current Beanie Baby. The only thing I can think is that she could be something to do with New Face Teddy (Magenta), but I’m not sure about this.

I LOVE her bright pink ribbon covered in white polka dots!

Magenta II is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

My thoughts…

I adore this new series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

I think my favourite of this series may be Hope II, but I also love little Legs II and I love the colours on Magenta II. Oh, I can’t decide, they’re all so cute!

Take a look at Series 6 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

Monday, December 11th, 2023

Hi everyone!

Some exciting news in time for Christmas!…the 6th series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies has been announced!

I have pre-ordered this set from The Magical Gift Boutique ready for their release as I expect this set to be quite popular!

Celebrate II

Celebrate II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Celebrate II was first released in the USA as part of series 5. However, he has now been released in series 6 for the UK!

I love the purple colour of Celebrate II and his little purple-pink ribbon. It feels like one of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies I MUST have in my collection because of his embroidered “30 Years” Ty heart.

Celebrate II is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Amber II

Amber II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Following on from last series’ Silver II, we will now be getting his counterpart Amber II!

I remember saying in a previous post how I would love Silver II to have his companion kitty, and I’m happy to say that these two will be reunited again!

The difference this time is that Amber II has been created in the design of the older style kitties, which I absolutely LOVE! It almost feels like Ty has been listening when I said I prefer the old-style cats of the 90s!

Amber II is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

Bananas II

Bananas II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

The final addition to the Anniversary Beanie Babies will be…Bananas II!

Bananas II is named after the original Bananas, but has a design more akin to Schweetheart.

I love his colour combination of smoky grey and lilac. There is something quite calming about it, yet still retaining some of the crazy colour mixes that I love.

Bananas II is available to order from The Magical Gift Boutique!

My thoughts…

I am so happy that Celebrate II is finally coming to the UK! I’ve been waiting for this Beanie to arrive since the last series, when it was announced that he would be part of the 5th series in the USA!

I’m so happy that Silver and Amber will be together again! I’m also glad that Ty went with the old-style, laying down design for her instead of a sitting position.

Bananas is a great addition to the 30th Anniversary range and I’m happy that we have another crazy colour combination again! I also love that he looks more like Schweetheart, rather than the original Bananas as I preferred that design overall.

I’m so glad that I’ve preordered this set from The Magical Gift Boutique as I think they will be very popular.

I’m slightly sad that with it being December, there are no Christmas-themed re-releases joining the gang, but I guess there weren’t any Halloween or Thanksgiving Anniversary Beanies either. But I absolutely love the new additions that we are getting!

New Ty Beanies arriving in November 2023!

Monday, November 13th, 2023

Hi everyone!

Have you “herd” the exciting news? There are more a-moo-sing Beanies out this month!

Sorry, I couldn’t help it!

Seriously though, there are some fantastic new releases out this month! I have three of them to show you already below that I bought from one of my favourite online shops, The Magical Gift Boutique!

NOVEMBER BEANIE BOOS AND BEANIE BELLIES IN MY COLLECTION SO FAR…

Hambone

Hambone the Pig Ty Beanie Boo

The first of these is Hambone.

How adorable is this little guy?! I just love the little grey patches they have given him, and his little piggy snout is just perfect!

His Birthday is on 27th February and his poem reads:

I like the spring
And when birds sing
I’ll sit a while
It makes me smile

Hambone is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Next up is…

Jenni

Jenni the Cat Ty Beanie Bellies

I’ve been so looking forward to having Jenni in my collection!

Not only are her pastel colours purrfect, she kind of reminds me of the original Peace bears and Sammy from the 90s. Obviously, she has the newer glittery button eyes, but the colours on each one are so different, that each one is unique!

Her Birthday is on 14th September and her poem reads:

Four soft little paws
Without the sharp claws
All pastel and pretty
A wonderful Kitty!

Jenni is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Herdly

Herdly the Cow Ty Beanie Bellies

Now, this is a Beanie Belly that I have been eagerly awaiting! Herdly the cow!

It’s been too long since we had a new cow Beanie, and Herdly is a fantastic new addition to the Beanie Bellies range!

I love her tiny horns and I think it’s brilliant that Ty have given great attention to detail by adding udders to her belly!

She is probably one of my favourites this year!

Herdly’s Birthday is on 16th July and her poem reads:

In the pasture where I graze
It’s the best on sunny days
On the days if there is rain
I stay in and eat my grain

Herdly is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

MORE BEANIE BOOS AND BEANIE BELLIES FOR NOVEMBER 2023!

The following Beanies, I don’t have in my collection just yet, but are either available already, or will be released later this month…

Fisher

Fisher the Penguin Ty Beanie Boo

Fisher is a delightful little penguin with pale grey feathers. She is so adorable and I’m glad that Ty have created a slightly different design for her rather than a traditional black and white penguin.

Fisher is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Rukus

Rukus the Skunk Ty Beanie Bellies

Rukus is probably one of my favourite Beanie Bellies this November! She reminds me a little of Flower the Skunk from the Disney movie, Bambi.

I love how there are little extra details, such as her paw prints have been adapted to look a little bit like skunk tracks and she has extra fluffy fur on her head and tail.

Rukus is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Randi

Randi the Rottweiler Dog Ty Beanie Bellies

Randi is a gorgeous Rottweiler dog with lovely, tan-coloured details on her eyebrows, face and legs.

I love her cute little black paw pads and how her glittery golden eyes stand out from her black fur.

Randi is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

NEW MEDIUM SIZE FOR BEANIE BELLIES NOW AVAILABLE!

You heard that right! Ty have released a new 23cm (9″) size to the Beanie Bellies range!

So far, I have Mango and Stubby on pre-order that I will show you when they arrive.

Medium Mango the Cat and Medium Stubby the Monkey Ty Beanie Bellies

Both Mango and Stubby, and more medium size Beanie Bellies are available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Some of the medium Beanie Bellies that have been announced so far are:

Mango (Medium)
Stubby (Medium)
Tink (Medium)
Lloyd (Medium)
Penelope (Medium)
Duncan (Medium)
Syklar (Medium)
Bumper (Medium)
Snapper (Medium)

I’m really interested to see how the material differs on a larger size, especially with a “fluffier” Beanie Belly like Stubby. I can’t wait to show you all how they look in reality!

MORE BEANIE BALLS AVAILABLE THIS NOVEMBER!

There are four new Beanie Balls designs also available this November!

Pigasso

Pigasso the Pig Ty Beanie Balls

I just love the pastel tie-dye colours on Pigasso! And how adorable are those glittery blue eyes and that little pink piggy snout?!

Pigasso is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Gilly

Gilly the Frog Ty Beanie Balls

Gilly is a sweet, green frog who would make the perfect friend for Snapper!

I love his bright green colour and his matching, glittery button eyes!

Gilly is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

Clawsby

Clawsby the Tiger Ty Beanie Balls

Another welcome addition to the Beanie Balls range is Clawsby!

He has a cute little round, striped body and I love the white detail around his face!

Clawsby is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

And finally…

Cruiser

Cruiser the Turtle Ty Beanie Balls

Cruiser is a bright green turtle with the sweetest face!

He carries his brown shell on his back and has the most gorgeous, glittery gold eyes!

Cruiser is available at The Magical Gift Boutique!

MY THOUGHTS…

I am absolutely loving the new November Beanies!

The new Beanie Bellies are absolutely fantastic and I’m over the moon with the new designs!

I think my favourite of the new regular-sized Beanie Bellies is probably Herdly, closely followed by Rukus. Although to be honest, it was hard to pick a favourite this time as they are all so cute!

I am looking forward to seeing the new medium-sized Beanie Bellies in real life! And I can’t wait for Mango and Stubby to arrive (and I may sneakily order a Penelope at some point!…)

The Beanie Balls are great too! I think my two favourites would have to be Pigasso and Gilly.

Series 5 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies available soon!

Wednesday, October 18th, 2023

Hi everyone!

Who else is excited for the upcoming release of the fifth series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies?

I’m especially happy that the UK will be getting three Beanies instead of only two like in the last series! In the last series, we only got Signature Bear II and Nanook II, whereas the USA had Blue Teddy II, Nanook II and Zip II.

This time, both the USA and UK will get three Beanies! Hooray!

So, which Beanie Babies will be available in this series?

Silver II

Silver II the Cat 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Silver II is one of the latest 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

She is based on the original Silver Beanie Baby. I haven’t seen it yet, but since all the other poems so far have matched the originals I’m guessing her poem will be as follows:

Curled up, sleeping in the sun
He’s worn out from having fun
Chasing dust specks in the sunrays
This is how he spends his days!

The original Silver (and his counterpart Amber) were based on two orphaned kittens who were adpoted by Ty Warner.

I wonder if one day there may be an Amber II….I hope so.

Dotty II

Dotty the Dalmatian Dog 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Dotty II is based on the original Dotty.

Both Beanies look incredibly similar, The only main difference will be that the newer Anniversary version will have softer, plush fur.

Again, I’m assuming that her poem will be as follows:

The Beanies all thought it was a big joke
While writing her tag, their ink pen broke
She got in the way, and got all spotty
So now the Beanies call her Dotty!

Dotty is so cute, and I love her poem on how she “got her spots”.

Blue Teddy II

Blue Teddy II the Bear 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Blue Teddy II is only part of the UK series 5. He was already released in the USA as part of the fourth series.

This teddy is the most gorgeous bright blue colour. His rainbow ribbon suits him perfectly.

His Birthday is on 30th November (based on the USA release in the last series) and his poem is as follows:

Teddy wanted to go out today
All of his friends went out to play
But he’d rather help whatever you do
After all, his best friend is you!

Despite him being named “Blue Teddy II”, there was no original Blue Teddy and this is the first of his name.

And finally…

Celebrate II

Celebrate II the Bear 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Celebrate II will only be released in the USA this time round.

His Birthday is on 18th December and his poem is as follows:

Each year it seems we’ve just begun
Bringing your favorites one by one
That’s got to be the reason why
These 30 years quickly flew by

At the moment, it’s unknown whether he will arrive in the UK, but I will update you if he does.

My thoughts

I’m loving the new Silver II and Dotty II, but I wish there was a little more variety in colour.

I LOVE the bright colours from the earlier series. I loved the wacky colour combinations of Patti II, Peanut II and Squealer II. Even Nanook II was blue instead of grey.

I wish that Ty had made one of the Beanies in this series a bright colour, but that’s just my personal opinion and I do love the two Beanies that have been announced.

I also REALLY hope that they make an Amber II as a friend for Silver II…

The 4th series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies has now been announced!

Friday, August 18th, 2023

Hi everyone!

Great news! We now know who is in the fourth set of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

Yet again, they will be available to find at local retailers in the USA and UK….and here they are below!

Zip II

Zip II 30th Anniversary Beanie Baby

Zip II made his appearance in the third set in the UK. Now he will be available in the fourth series of Beanies.

He looks identical in nearly every way to the original Zip (white paws variation), except for the addition of a white tail tip.

His Birthday has moved from the 28th March to 28th June, but his poem remains unchanged.

Nanook II

Nanook II 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies

Nanook II is one of the new designs this month!

Based on the original Nanook, who was one of the cutest little husky Beanie Babies (in my opinion), he is set to be a favourite this month!

I’m not sure on a Birthday for him just yet, but I’m guessing based on previous Beanies that his poem will remain the same as the original, shown below.

Nanook is a dog that loves cold weather
To him a sled is light as a feather
Over the snow and through the slush
He runs at hearing the cry of “mush!”

I can’t wait to get this little guy and I currently have him on preorder for when he arrives!

Blue Teddy II

(Photo: Ty.com)

Blue Teddy II is the new bear addition available this month for the USA.

So far, the picture above is all that I can find on him. As you can see, he is a beautiful bright blue colour with a pastel rainbow ribbon.

So far, I’m uncertain if he will have a poem or birth date yet, but I will update his page when I get more details on him.

I’m not quite sure why he’s called “Blue Teddy II” however, as there wasn’t a “Blue Teddy” to begin with! I’m guessing they’re just sticking with them all having “II” at the end of their name.

Signature Bear II

Signature Bear II 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies

Signature Bear II was available in the third set last month for the USA. However, he will now be available in the fourth set in the UK this time.

Inside his hang tag, he is named Signature Bear 2023.

He is a gorgeous lime green colour with a bright red ribbon, and of course, the signature Ty heart on his chest.

My thoughts…

The fourth series looks amazing!

I’m really looking forward to getting Nanook II as I loved the original Beanie Baby version of him!

However, I’m a little disappointed this month that the UK only have two Beanies in the fourth series (Nanook II and Signature Bear II) instead of the three that the USA will be getting (Nanook II, Blue Teddy II and Zip II).

The Beanie Bubble Movie is Out! Did it meet up to expectations?

Sunday, August 6th, 2023

Hi everyone!

As you may be aware, the Beanie Bubble movie is now showing at selected cinemas and available to stream on Apple TV as well as Amazon Prime in the US!

I have now watched it and really enjoyed the movie but can safely say, that this movie is not intended for children.

The movie is based on the book, The Great Beanie Bubble: Mass Delusion and the Dark Side of Cute by Zac Bissonnette. This book is about the rise and fall of the Beanie Baby craze of the 90’s and can be purchased on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

Be aware, this review may contain some spoilers if you haven’t already watched the movie.

The Beanie Bubble (Photo: Apple TV)

(Photo: Apple TV)

What is the movie about?

The Beanie Bubble follows the lives of the three women that helped Ty gain the success he had during the Beanie craze of the 90’s.

Elizabeth Banks plays Robbie Jones, Ty’s business partner. They meet after the death of Ty’s Father and eventually set up Ty Inc. together.

Sarah Snook plays Sheila Harper, Ty’s long term girlfriend. Sheila and her two daughters move in to Ty’s house.

Geraldine Viswanathan plays Maya Kumar, “employee number 12” at Ty Inc. She came up with ideas for the company, such as the poems in hang tags and retiring Beanie Babies to make them more sought after. She also designed (along with her brother) the the first ever website that sold directly to consumers.

The Beanie Bubble is about the rise and fall of the Beanie Babies craze that sent everybody mad.  It is based around how these three women, who played such a huge part in Ty Warner’s life, never got a mention.

Are the events in the movie real?

As with all things in the film industry, not EVERYTHING is exactly how things played out. At the beginning of the movie, it even states “There are parts of the truth you can’t make up. The rest we did”. But from what I’ve learned there are some key events that did really happen.

The truck that overturned at the beginning of the movie sending thousands of Beanie Babies hurtling through the air actually happened. However, in reality it contained McDonald’s Teenie Beanie Babies not Beanie Babies.

Beanie Bubble Movie Truck Crash

(Photo: Apple TV)

McDonald’s really did run out of Teenie Beanie Babies, and one guy actually ordered 100 Happy Meals and told the cashier to “hold the food, just include the Beanies”.

People really were that crazy in the 90’s. I miss those days…

What about the women in the movie? Did they really exist?

Although their names have been changed for the Beanie Bubble movie, they are actually based on real people in Ty’s life.

Robbie Jones

Robbie is based on Ty’s real life former girlfriend, Patricia Roche. She did in fact help set up Ty Inc along with Ty Warner. However, the movie suggested she would never work for him again, but set up her own separate company that would become the exclusive wholesaler of Ty products in the UK. In reality, the didn’t set up a company and accepted Ty’s offer to directly run Ty UK. It was correct that was one of the highest paid executives in the UK though.

Sheila Harper

Sheila is really inspired by Faith McGowan, Ty’s long-term girlfriend. She has two daughters from a pervious relationship, and they all moved into Ty Warner’s house together. This really happened.

It is partially true about the Spooky hang tag name credit change. It is suggested in the movie that Sheila’s daughter came up with the Spooky design. She drew the design on a tablecloth and gave it to Ty and he credited her on the hang tag, saying it was designed by Ava Harper.

Spooky Beanie Baby Ava Harper

(Photo: Apple TV)

Apparently, Ty was having trouble with how the Beanie would fit with the Beanie Babies range. Faith’s daughter, Jenna Boldebuck, drew the design on a paper tablecloth (like in the movie). But instead of handing the drawing to him, Ty tore the sketch off and took it with him.

The original Beanie did indeed have Jenna’s name credited on it, but two months later disappeared.

Maya Kumar

Maya’s real-life inspiration is a woman named Lina Trivedi. In the movie, she came up with the idea of adding a poem and birthday to the hang tags and designed the Beanie Baby website. She even came up with the idea of retiring Beanie Babies.

In reality, she (along with her brother) did in fact design Ty.com and it really did become the first business to consumer website in the world.

However, she did not come up with the idea of retiring Beanie Babies. That credit goes to the King brothers, who were distributors for Ty Inc.

My thoughts on the movie…

Although, there is quite a lot that is definitely more fiction that fact, I did really enjoy the movie. It brought a sense of nostalgia for the 90’s that I really liked.

There are parts I found a bit cheesy, but overall I thought it was a great insight into the Beanie Baby craze.

I also loved the Beanie Babies that were made specifically for the movie and the crazy, colourful cats that I wish existed.

Beanie Bubble Movie Pink Cat

When I first saw the trailer I wasn’t sure if there would be much about actual Beanie Babies, but some names did have a mention which I was pleased about.

Would I watch it again? Of course I would!

If you would like to read The Great Beanie Bubble book, you can find it on Amazon.com and Amazon UK

The Beanie Bubble is available at selected cinemas, on Apple TV and through Amazon Prime in the US.

Series 3 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies Announced!

Wednesday, July 12th, 2023

Hi everyone!

Great news! The third series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies have been announced!

Again, we see a set of three previously released Beanie Babies made with much softer fur and a few colour changes.

And here they are!

From the rumours I’ve heard, Snort II will be available to the US market, whereas the UK will get Peace II instead.

The two new Beanie Babies to join the gang will be Signature Bear II and Patti II.

Signature Bear II

Signature Bear II Beanie Baby

So far I’ve not managed to gain any information on a birth date or poem for the Signature Bear II.

From the picture, he appears to be a vivid bright green with a red ribbon and the red heart with Ty Warner’s signature seen on previous Signature bears.

Patti II

Patti II Beanie Baby

I’m really excited about this new version of Patti!

She was one of my favourite Beanie Babies, so seeing this amazing change in colour is great news! I love the bright tangerine orange of her body against her azure blue beak and feet.

I’ve made a calculated guess that her poem will be the same as the original, based on others in the 30th Anniversary range, but currently I’m not sure what her birth date will be.

My thoughts…

My favourite Beanie Baby in this latest series is definitely Patti!

I’m a little disappointed that there are only two new designs, but I’ll be happy if Peace II comes to the UK!

Series 2 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

Friday, July 7th, 2023

Hi everyone!

I’ve been away on holiday for a few days, so I’ve only just managed to get round to posting these up. At the moment, these little beauties are at my parents’ house as I am currently staying over in Bulgaria. However, my Dad (thanks again!) has sent me a few photos to look at before I get back to the UK.

Here they are…the second series of 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies!

30th Anniversary Beanie Babies. Left to right: Peanut II, Squealer II and Snort II

The second series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies includes Peanut II, Squealer II and Snort II.

Is it just me being nostalgic, or are the new Beanie Babies getting better with every new series?

I loved it when the 90’s Beanie Babies came out in crazy colours (I’m thinking of such Beanies as Patti, Inch and Chocolate) and I’m hoping we see more of these (watch this space…).

Peanut II Beanie Baby Hang Tag

The outer hang tag remains unchanged from the first series from what I can see from Peanut II’s tag (pictured above).

Take a look inside the hang tags…

Like the first series, the inner hang tag includes the same poem as the original Peanut, but the birth date has changed from 25th January 1995 to 25th April.

Peanut II inside hang tag

The birth date inside Squealer II’s hang tag has changed from 23rd April 1993 on the original Squealer’s tag to 23rd September. The poem remains the same.

Squealer II inside hang tag

And finally, Snort II’s birth date is now on 15th August instead of the original 15th May 1995.

So far, I don’t have the Peace II bear (hopefully that will change soon…). At first, he was thought to be a USA exclusive and Snort II a UK exclusive. However, this appears not to be the case as I have heard they are staggering the releases, with Peace II as part of the UK third series and Snort II as part of series 3 in the USA.

Left to right: Peanut II, Squealer II and Snort II

I ordered the third series of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies from The Magical Gift Boutique in the UK, who once again have provided a fantastic service. Thank you!

My thoughts on series 3 of the 30th Anniversary Beanie Babies…

I’m loving this new series as they are so bright and colourful! I love the bright purple of Peanut II, the addition of the lilac ears and tail to Squealer II and the red and yellow combination on Snort II.

I’m hoping we see more colourful additions!

A Beanie Baby Movie?!…Almost….

Monday, June 26th, 2023

Hi everyone!

We have seen many exciting new releases recently with the 30th Anniversary “Original” Beanie Babies. So far, there have been seven released (Valentino II, Bones II, Bongo II, Peanut II, Squealer II, Snort II and Peace II) with more Beanies to follow (stay tuned!).

Following on from the 90’s nostalgia is the announcement of a new Beanie Baby movie! Well….almost.

The movie focuses on the owner, Ty Warner (played by Zach Galifianakis), and the three women he collaborated with to create the most successful toy craze the world has known.

Elizabeth Banks stars as Ty’s business partner, Robbie, and Sarah Snook plays the part of Sheila Warner. The movie also stars Geraldine Viswanathan as Ty inc. employee, Maya.

It kind of makes Ty look like the Willy Wonka of the plush world, with plenty of eccentricity and colour.

The only thing that worries me is the lack of Beanies in the trailer. There are some, mainly cats and others that fly out in a truck crash briefly seen in the trailer.

The Beanie Bubble movie

(Photo: Apple TV)

A whopping 10,000 Beanies had to be created from scratch as the movie-makers only had permission to use the heart tag.

My thoughts on The Beanie Bubble movie…

The movie trailer actually looks pretty cool, so I’m really hoping this movie will live up to expectations.

The Beanie Bubble has plenty of colour and a lot of 90s nostalgia from the original Beanie Babies craze. I’m not certain how much of the movie is accurate, as I’m sure I read that Ty Warner never married (correct me if I’m wrong).

I’m just really hoping that we will see plenty of Beanie Babies featured in the movie, albeit Beanies that don’t exist.

When will the movie be released?

The Beanie Bubble is due to be released in select cinemas from 21st July 2023 and will be available to stream on Apple TV+ from 28th July 2023.
