New YouTube Channel!

Sunday, November 22nd, 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m really excited to tell you that I have decided to launch a brand new YouTube channel!

On the channel, I’m hoping to include unboxing videos, reviews and Beanie news. At the moment, it’s all a bit experimental, but I thought I’d try it out!

So, please check it out and subscribe for further updates!

What do you think? Please be kind, this is my very first video!

Friday is here!

Friday, November 13th, 2020

It’s Friday, and quite a sunny one at Beaniepedia HQ!

This morning I took this photo of my new medium-sized Charmed Flippable, who I absolutely ADORE! I’ve never really collected the medium Beanie Boos/Flippables before (mainly because of space to keep them all), but there is something about the medium size Flippables especially because the sequins seem to flip more easily!

It’s also Friday 13th today, which is a little concerning if you’re superstitious in the year 2020 where nothing seems to be going right.

I’ve managed to get in a few more Beanie requests today (for some reason I can’t reply to one of the members who contacted me, but just to let you know I got your email and I have added some of the Beanies that weren’t on the website. I still have some to add but I will get them in shortly).

Right now, I’m going to have a tea break (excuse the bowl. It’s my daughter’s, honest!). Have a great weekend!

Happy Halloween from Beaniepedia!

Saturday, October 31st, 2020

Hi everyone!

Just a quick message to wish you all a Happy Halloween! Have a safe, spooky time!

Today, we took a trip out to one of our favourite places in the UK…Dartmoor! Well known for it’s ghost stories and spooky tales. Batty and Roam came along for the ride too!

Our trip was a bit short-lived because the weather turned bad, but we had a great day out nonetheless.

Also, Pandora, Spike and Radar didn’t want to be left out of the Halloween fun! Love these little Boos!

Happy Halloween folks, and stay safe! Let us know your favourite Halloween Beanies in the comments below!

Beanie Baby Birthday – Zeus!

Friday, October 23rd, 2020

Hi everyone! I hope you are all safe and well!

Well it’s a little bit of a grey, damp day here at Beaniepedia HQ today so I thought I’d look up which Beanie had a Birthday today and I came across….*drum roll*….

Zeus the Moose!

I just thought this little guy looked so adorable! He reminds me in some ways of an updated Chocolate, one of the Original 9 Beanie Babies.

His Birthday is 23rd October 2002 and his poem reads as follows:

With mighty antlers on my head
It’s difficult to get in bed
But I sleep better, yes I do
When I am cuddled next to you!

I also just love the name Zeus, giving the impression that he’s this big, strong, almighty being, but really he’s this cuddly little thing just asking for a hug!

Have you got Zeus in your collection?

It’s mid-week already!

Wednesday, October 7th, 2020

Well it’s the middle of the week again!

As you may be aware from my Facebook and Instagram pages, we recently got back to the UK from Bulgaria, and as such, we are now in quarantine for 14 days. I don’t know if it’s being quarantine, or being back in the UK with easier access to Beanies (Bulgaria doesn’t really have a market for them), I think I’ve gone a bit Beanie-crazy recently as I’ve managed to get hold of all three Halloween Beanie Boos, Radar, Pandora and Spike! Here they all are pictured with Roam below.

I can’t decide which is my favourite. At first, being a bit of a cat-lover, I thought it might be Pandora. I just love her green eyes and little witch’s hat!

But now, I’m torn between all three!

Radar has a round, fluffy body with little white highlights and I love the colour pattern on his wings and ears. His eyes are also a little different as they almost have a “glowing” look to them.

And Spike is also ultra-adorable!

He has these cute little dark circles under his eyes (almost like myself most days!) and his little smile cheers me right up!

As well as these cuties, I also have Bruni (with sound) on the way. The place I bought him from (The Magical Gift Boutique) kindly gave me the option to have one delivered later, even though I was away at the time, so he should be on his way to me shortly (yay!)

And finally, I have ordered two more Beanie Boos. Hope (who I was unable to get while I was away) and Chase (from Paw Patrol) are currently on their way to me. I’m not actually sure which colour nose my Hope will have, but I’m thinking maybe blue? Technically, one of these two isn’t actually for me – it’s my daughter’s Birthday coming up soon and she ADORES Paw Patrol – so that makes it a tiny bit better, but a few more Beanies have caught my eye since…

Have you bought any new Beanies recently? If so, what new additions do you have to your collections? Leave a comment below!

Have a great Wednesday!

Beanie Baby Review – Stripes the Zebra!

Friday, October 2nd, 2020

Hi everyone!

As promised earlier this week, I am now going to review another recent Beanie Baby I purchased…Stripes!

Stripes is an adorable white zebra with airbrushed black stripes. He has large, glittery blue button eyes that really stand out from his white fur! His eyes could almost be mistaken for those of a Beanie Boo, but Stripes is from the Beanie Babies range.

His fuzzy mane and the tip of his tail are both white with subtle hints of black mixed in. His muzzle, inner ears and hooves are all pale grey and he has black stitching for his mouth and nostrils.

Stripes has the given Birthday of 17th January and his poem reads as follows:

My stripes help me to hide from danger
I run and hide when I see a stranger!

As you can see from his tush tag, Stripes is made from the trademarked VelveTy material which is very soft to the touch. It also has a subtle sheen to it which catches the light.

My final thoughts on Stripes are that he is incredibly cute and he has the most gorgeous eyes! I definitely think it was the right decision to go with the blue, glittery eyes. I am so glad to have this little guy in my collection now as I had been meaning to get him for ages!

What do you think of Stripes? Do you have him in your collection?

It’s Friday!

Friday, September 25th, 2020

Hi everyone!

It’s that time of the week again! You guessed it…it’s Friday!

This week has been a mad one, but I’ve managed to get some more Beanies on to the database. I’ve mainly been focusing on email requests that I’ve received to add certain Beanies on to the site – if you have emailed me and I haven’t replied, I’m really sorry! I will try to get round to you, but I get so many emails!

The website is now nearing 3,000 Beanies on the database! That includes all Ty products, such as Beanie Babies, Beanie Boos, Flippables, etc.

The only problem with adding Beanies on to the site is that I’ve seen so many that I would like to get! There have been Beanie Babies from my childhood (I started collecting in the 90’s at the height of Beanie mania) and some newer ones that I have never even seen before!

Today, I came across this little guy and I think he’s going to be one of the next ones I want to add to me collection.

Meet Wiggy.

Wiggy is a cute sea lion with the ultra soft VelveTy fur! He looks a little like a Beanie Boo, but is actually part of the Beanie Babies collection.

His poem reads as follows:

On the pier I like to lay
Under the sun, I sleep all day!

Others that I have come across this week, via requests or just through searching are Opie (who I haven’t seen before but absolutely adore!), Seamore (for nostalgia purposes!) and Richie (a cute little beaver with buck teeth!)

Beanie Baby Birthday – Happy Birthday Koowee!

Thursday, September 24th, 2020

 

Hi everyone!

Today is 24th September, which means…it’s Koowee’s Birthday!

Koowee is a fuzzy grey koala bear with adorable fluffy white ears. He has the characteristic large, oval koala nose and little grey paws clasped together.

Koowee was an Australian/New Zealand exclusive Beanie Baby released back in July 2004. His poem reads as follows:

Eating Gum leaves, sleeping in trees
Relaxing in the Aussie Breeze
Watching as the branches sway
That’s how I like to spend my day!

Couldn’t you just cuddle this little cutie?!

Happy Birthday little guy!

Hi everyone!

Well it’s Friday again (yay!) and I’ve got some more Beanie news that might be of interest to you`.

Well now there is another Bruni…with sound! Eek!

I’m so excited as I have reserved one of these little guys! Stay tuned as I’ll be posting a review once he arrives!

Today is International Black Cat Appreciation Day!

Monday, August 17th, 2020

As the title says, today is International Black Cat Appreciation Day!

Funnily enough, I’ve literally just put Heiress, the gorgeous fluffy black cat Beanie Baby from 2004, into the database! Here she is pictured below:

Isn’t she pretty?!

Other favourite black cat Beanie Babies of mine include Fraidy, the Halloween cat (pictured below), Cabaret the fluffy tuxedo cat, Zip the black and white cat (who was all-black in an earlier release) and Frightful the Witch Cat.

For the Beanie Boos, Jinxy (pictured below) is one of my favourite black cats. Others include Potion, Witchie and Shadow. As you can see, most black cats in the Beanie Boos range are Halloween-themed.

Do you own a black cat? Or should I say, does a black cat own you?! Or perhaps you have a favourite black cat Beanie? Leave a comment below!
