Upcoming Beanie Boo?

Friday, May 29th, 2020

Have you spotted this little fox?

This adorable fox is called Faye. Although I saw Faye a while back on the Ty Calendar, I couldn’t find out any details on her before, other than a fuzzy, small image.

Ty have now updated her image on the Calendar and now include her poem, which reads as follows:

Being a sly fox is my claim to fame
Make a silly face, and I’ll do the same!

Faye will probably make an appearance later this year (obviously, the current situation could delay things, so I’m not sure exactly when that could be).

I am pretty sure, based on her look, that she will be released to the Beanie Boo collection, however, this is still unclear at the moment.

Faye is not to be confused with another fox released in the Beanie Babies range this year, called Fay (without the “e”).

Keep a look out for Faye later this year!

Finally, the first Katy pre-orders are out!

Saturday, May 23rd, 2020

After what seems like forever, it appears the first Katy Beanie Boos have been shipped out!

Katy was first expected to be available in March, but from what I gather, there was a delay on the shipment of the Katy pre-orders due to the current coronavirus situation. However, it appears people are now starting to receive them, which is fantastic news!

Katy was first announced at the beginning of the year to raise funds for WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.) in order to help the rescue efforts for the wildlife caught up in the devastating wildfires in Australia.

If you pre-ordered Katy, have you received her yet?

New Beanie Baby – Barker

Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

With everything that’s going on at the moment, it’s nice to hear the news that there is a brand new Beanie Baby available!

His name is Barker and here is the little guy pictured below. Isn’t he adorable?!

Barker is a brand new dog in the Beanie Babies line. He is similar in appearance to the Beanie Boos (in fact, I thought he was one at first!) with his large, glittery gold eyes.

Barker appears to be a spaniel-type dog, possible a cocker spaniel, and has lovely floppy ears that are slightly furrier than the rest of him.

Barker’s Birthday is on 24th January and his poem reads:

It’s a known fact that dogs make good best friends.
There is no doubt we’re pals to the end!

Do you have Barker in your collection yet?

Keep safe everyone!

Monday, March 23rd, 2020

Hi everyone!

Sorry I’ve been a little quiet lately. It’s all gone a bit crazy since my last post.

As you have almost certainly heard, we are currently in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. I’m still here and keeping safe, and I hope everyone is also feeling well and following the guidelines set out by their country. We all need to do our bit at the moment to help everyone out during this time.

I also hope everyone had a lovely Mother’s Day in the UK, despite perhaps not being able to celebrate in quite the same way as usual.

Now more than ever, we need to discover the importance of keeping ourselves occupied in the comfort of our own homes. I know many parents will be looking for ideas to keep their children busy and still learning now that the schools are shut in the UK.

Arts and crafts are great for keeping little minds occupied. One idea could be to draw their favourite Beanie Boo or Beanie Baby in different scenarios (perhaps a springtime picture to brighten things up), or make a comic strip with a short story. Or creating clothes and accessories for their Beanie Boo using craft supplies or things around the home. Pinterest is great for ideas if you’re stuck!

Jigsaw puzzles or board games are good for passing time and baking is great fun and brilliant for learning a new skill. There’s even a treat at the end of it!

Scorch (pictured above) has got his day sorted doing crossword puzzles with a cup of tea.

How are you keeping yourself busy? And most importantly, keep yourself and others safe!

Loy the Akita Dog

Thursday, February 20th, 2020

Recently, we discovered that there are five upcoming European exclusive moose Beanie Boos. These were Rasmus (Denmark), Väinö (Finland), Harald (Norway), Birger (Sweden) and Egert (Estonia).

Well, dog lovers will be excited about this new, country exclusive Beanie Boo!

This is Loy.

Loy is an Akita dog exclusively available in Japan. He is a gorgeous orange/brown colour with golden, sparkly eyes and a white face and belly.

His Birthday is on 10th November and his poem reads:

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

Akita dogs are a breed of Japanese dog well equipped for the mountainous regions of Japan. They are a large breed and normally have a dominant temperament, so are not recommended for those without experience of the breed.

Below is an example of what a real Akita would look like.

Loy however, requires no training whatsoever and is just adorable!

So far, I’m not sure if Loy has been released. I’ve tried looking on the Ty Japan website, but I can’t find him on there, so I’m assuming he probably isn’t yet. Please, let me know if you find out otherwise.

What do you think of Loy?

A fifth moose?!

Wednesday, February 19th, 2020

Yesterday, I posted an article about the four European exclusive moose Beanie Boos, Rasmus, Harald, Birger and Väinö. Each of these moose represented a different country in Northern Europe: Rasmus for Denmark, Harald for Norway, Birger for Sweden and Väinö for Finland.

Well I’ve just been informed that there is a fifth moose! Here he is pictured below:

 

This little guy is called Egert and represents Estonia, as can be seen with the Estonian flag on his chest. His Birthday is on 24th February.

So there are now five moose Beanie Boos to look out for!

Top 5 Valentine’s Day Beanie Boos

Monday, February 10th, 2020

Yesterday I posted an article about my top five Valentine’s Day Beanie Babies. Well today, I’m going to talk about my top five Valentine’s Day Beanie Boos!

So I’ll start off with one of my favourite monkeys.

1. Casanova

Casanova is special to me as I received him myself for Valentine’s Day.

This cute little brown monkey was released in 2010 and holds a large, pink love heart in his paws. He is slightly older than the other Beanie Boos I’m going to talk about today and has a purple 2nd generation hang tag.

His poem reads:

My temperature’s high and my vision’s a blur
I have a bad case of jungle
Love for sure!

Casanova was also released in a medium size and as a key clip.

2. Romeo

Romeo looks like a bit like a Boston Terrier or a French Bulldog, I’m not quite sure which, but he sure is cute!

He is a gorgeous hot pink colour and holds a shiny red heart in his jaws, ready to give to his new owner!

His poem reads:

This special day, I give you my heart
Treat it well and we’ll never part!

Romeo was also released in a medium size.

3. Junglelove

Junglelove is a pale pink giraffe covered in hot pink patches. He is such a cutie with his little red heart, tiny red hooves and large pink eyes!

His poem reads:

I’m a romantic giraffe I surely think
Even my body is red and pink!

Junglelove was also released in a medium size and as a key clip.

4. Reagan

Reagan technically hasn’t been released yet, but I just had to put her on the list!

I just think her pink, curly hair is so adorable, as is her little pink, heart-shaped nose!

She is expected to be released very soon and currently her poem is unknown (I’ll update this as soon as I find out).

And finally…

5. Dainty

Dainty has the same pink, curly fur as Reagan, and looks so cute with her tiny wings and her sparkly beak, which holds a shiny hot pink heart.

Her poem reads:

No need to say anything, There is no special lingo.
I will forever be yours, your Valentine flamingo!

Dainty was also released in a medium size.

What are your favourite Valentine’s Day Beanie Boos? Who else do you think should be on this list?

Spirit the German Shepherd Beanie Boo Spotted on Amazon!

Wednesday, February 5th, 2020

Last week I wrote an article about three dog Beanie Boos that are expected to be released soon. Well it appears that at least one of them is now available!

Spirit the German Shepherd dog is available on Amazon.com!

His Birthday is on 15th May and his poem reads:

I’m a strong German Shepherd, both smart and bold
With tremendous spirit, and a heart of gold.

There are two other dog Beanie Boos that are due to follow soon, Camilla the pink poodle and Prince the blue husky.

Have you spotted Spirit, Camilla or Prince yet?

One for the Dog Lovers…

Thursday, January 30th, 2020

Yesterday, I wrote an article about the upcoming Beanie Boos and Flippables for cat lovers. Now its the dog lovers’ turn!

There are soon to be three new dog Beanie Boos on the shelves! As stated before, these Beanie Boos are expected in stores either February or March.

First up is Prince.

Prince is a new husky Beanie Boo with a gorgeous blue and white colouring. I like how his ears are a slightly darker blue than the rest of his body as it give a bit of contrast from just being a solid blue.

Next, there’s a new poodle Beanie Boo expected. Her name is Camilla.

To be honest, I’m not sure about this one. I prefer the traditional poodle look that you see with Beanie Boos like Mandy and Princess. Thats just my personal preference though. She has a kind of “puffball” body with a long neck like Orson’s. Maybe I’ll change my mind when I see her up close.

Finally, my personal favourite of the new dog Beanie Boos, Spirit!

Spirit is a german shepherd dog, and I think Ty have done an amazing job with him. His face has so much detail to make him as close to a german shepherd as a Beanie Boo could possibly be! I love his dark muzzle and the caramel brown over his golden eyes.

So that’s it! All three new dog Beanie Boos due out either next month or the month after! Stay tuned for further updates!

Which one are you looking forward to the most?

Beanie Boo Review – Zappy the Platypus

Monday, January 27th, 2020

Yesterday, I went into town to do some shopping and came home with an unexpected bargain from Poundland! For those in the USA who follow my website, Poundland is a nationwide discount store in the UK that sells things from £1 up to about £5. They are literally in every town and city in the UK that you come across.

Anyway, I just happened to notice that they had a selection of Beanie Boos in store! The Beanie Boos in stock at the time were Icy, Asha, Orson, Aqua, Nori, Zappy and Cinnamon. They also had Aqua and Icy in the medium size and various Ty Gear. I decided to buy Zappy the Platypus as I didn’t have him in my collection yet.

Zappy was released in 2019 in both the small and medium sizes of Beanie Boo. He is a purple, pink, blue and white platypus with a fluffy body except for his lavender coloured belly, which is made from the smoother Ty Silk material. His eyes (shown below) are glittery purple and slightly smaller than that of most Beanie Boos. His flippers and bill are made from sparkly turquoise fabric, covered in glitter.

He has a 4th generation Beanie Boo swing tag with the red background and yellow “Beanie Boos” logo and “Ty” written in white. Earlier Beanie Boos had a purple swing tag with a yellow “Ty” logo and “Beanie Boos” written in a pale blue font.

Written inside right of his swing tag is his name, Birthday, which is on 15th September, and a poem. The poem reads as follows:

I’m a platypus who likes to swim
So I’ll never, never need a gym!

The Zappy I bought has the version of the two-tag C1 tush tag that was distributed in the UK (with the Portsmouth address stuck over the front of the USA Oakbrook, IL address).

My overall impression of Zappy is that I just adore the colour of his fur! I think the combination of purples, blues and pinks really compliment each other well (I may be a bit biased as I just LOVE purple!). I think he makes a brilliant addition to the Beanie Boos range (and to my personal collection).

For the information of those in the UK, the price on the shelf for Zappy was £3, which I thought was a pretty good deal. However, when I went to the checkout, he was actually priced at £2! Even better!

What do you think of Zappy?
