Beanie Birthday – Sunburst the Crab!

Tuesday, June 4th, 2019

Today is is the 4th June, which means it’s Sunburst the Crab’s Birthday!

Sunburst was a Beanie Baby released on 28th February 2007. She is a bright pink crab covered in a summery white hibiscus flower print!

Sunburst came with a 15th generation hang tag and her poem is as follows:

Here in my island paradise
The weather’s warm; the breeze so nice
I’ll sun myself on the warm sand
Life on the beach is truly grand!

This cute little Beanie was retired only 10 months later on 27th December 2007.

Do you have Sunburst in your collection?

Asuka – The New Japan Exclusive Beanie Boo!

Thursday, April 25th, 2019

Meet Asuka.

Asuka is a cute, sparkly blue shark with a white belly and bright blue glittery eyes. His Birthday is on 13th December.

Asuka’s poem reads as follows:

I swim in the ocean
I am a fearsome shark
And if I bite you
I’ll leave a nasty mark.

This little shark is exclusively available in Japan and currently not much is known about him and seems to be impossible to find anything out about him. I have found conflicting information as to whether he has even been released yet.

Any information on this elusive shark Beanie Boo would be very much appreciated!

What do you think about Asuka?

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?

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!

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?

Tonight in the UK is Guy Fawkes Night, or Bonfire Night as it’s more commonly known. When it gets dark, there will be bonfires lit and firework displays off all over the country. Today is also Sparks the bear’s birthday!

Sparks is a Guy Fawkes Night bear, as shown by his embroidered firework motif.

Guy Fawkes Night, historically, originates from the failed Gunpowder Plot to assassinate King James I of England in 1605.

Happy Back to the Future Day!

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

I loved the Back to the Future movies. I remember wanting a hoverboard like Marty McFly and to travel back in time in a DeLorean.

October 21st 2015 at 4:29pm is the destination time that Marty McFly travelled to when he went to the future in Back to the Future part II to save his children who are yet to be born.

backtothefutureday

There is a Beanie Baby bear whose birthday also shares this day. Quivers the ghost bear is a Halloween themed bear. His birthday is on 21st October 2002, making him 13 years old!

quivers

If you, like me, love the Back to the Future movies, have a happy Back to the Future Day!
