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!

Slim pickings….

Monday, April 26th, 2021

Hi guys!

Another lovely day here at Beaniepedia HQ! Freckles took a walk in the park this morning and found a very interesting-looking plant that looked like a cabbage.

At the weekend, we went Beanie Hunting! We went to the charity shops in search of bargains, but sadly there were hardly any Beanies out there! The only Beanies I found were Doby, Silver, Liberty, and Benny from the Ty Monstaz range, but I already have them in my collection.

I also found Rainbow Dash from the My Little Pony set of Beanie Babies, but she wasn’t in the best condition, so I left her.

However, I did find this little cutie….

This little white tiger is called Tundra and she’s so sweet! I love the expression on her face as she almost looks a little confused about something!

This is the first version of Tundra, as there was another tiger called Tundra released in 2014 with glittery eyes that looks very similar to a Beanie Boo, but with smaller eyes.

 

She has a slightly coarse texture to her fur that has a slight shine to it in the light. Her body is covered in beautiful black stripes from head to toe, with the exception of her belly and muzzle.

Tundra’s Birthday is on 4th September 2005 and her poem reads:

So quiet you won’t hear a sound
As I stalk and prowl around
Watch out or I’ll give you a scare
When I jump out and say, “Hi there”!

All in all, this weekend was a partial success. Although I’ve had other days where I’ve managed to find loads of bargains, this weekend I only managed to find one. However, the bargain I did find, I’m really happy with, especially for £1.50! I bought her from a Cancer Research UK charity shop, so the money will also go to a good cause.

What do you think of Tundra? Have you found any bargains this weekend? Leave a comment below!

We’re Going on a Beanie Hunt!

Friday, April 23rd, 2021

Hi guys!

It’s a lovely sunny afternoon here at Beaniepedia HQ and the best part is…it’s Friday!

We had a lovely walk around the park this morning and Nuts posed for a photo shoot.

Tomorrow, I am hoping to hit the charity shops (thrift stores in the USA) in the hope that I can find some bargain Beanie Babies/Boos!

Up until recently in the UK, most shops, including charity shops were closed due to the pandemic. They are now finally open again, so we are going to see if we can find any bargains!

I love searching charity shops for bargains. Not only is it fun to see what you can find, and you are essentially recycling by buying unwanted things, but the money is also going to a good cause, which makes it even better!

Do you hunt for Beanies in charity shops/thrift stores? What are your most recent finds? Leave a comment below!

Dragons, Dragons, Dragons…

Wednesday, April 14th, 2021

Hi guys!

It’s a lovely, sunny Wednesday afternoon here at Beaniepedia HQ and Nuts is hanging out with his buddy, Scorch!

As I’ve mentioned on my other website, Jelly Collector, I’m currently OBSESSED with collecting dragons! Scorch, the dragon Beanie Baby above is one of my all-time favourites. I’ve had him for years and bought him because at the time I LOVED Spyro the Dragon on the PS1.

Currently, Holly, the Claire’s exclusive dragon is the only dragon in my Beanie Boos collection (isn’t she beautiful?!).

However, I do have some dragon Beanie Boos on the way. Soon, I should hopefully have Saffire, Grindal and Anora (pictured below).

I was going to order Cinder too, but I might have to try and get him next month.

I am also in love with Spectra, but as I’m in the UK and she is a Michael’s exclusive from the USA, he is harder to get over here, although not impossible.

Merlin, the Walgreens exclusive dragon, is another one that is harder to find, especially in the UK. He is a gorgeous black dragon with a shiny orange belly. I love his shiny scale pattern that covers him from head to toe.

Darla is another dragon I might have to leave until a later date. She is probably going to be a bit easier to get hold of as she’s currently widely available.

She is a bright pink dragon covered in sparkles and has beautiful, shiny green wings and sparkly green eyes.

I would also love Kate from the Flippables range. I love how her sequins look like scales and they are a beautiful colour!

I hope that Ty make more dragon Beanie Boos as I find them sooo cute!

Top 5 Spring Beanie Boos

Wednesday, April 7th, 2021

Hi guys!

I hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter!

Well, after a lovely warm Sunday, the weather seems to have decided that it would like to go back to Winter again as it’s freeeeezing!

Since it’s (apparently) Spring, I’ve decided to post up my five favourite Springtime Beanie Boos! (these are subject to change as I’m forever changing my mind!)

The first Beanie Boo on my list is Feathers.

Feathers is the Easter Chick offering this year! The reason I chose her is because she is so fluffy! She just looks like a little marshmallow and is so cute! I like how her fur is two-tone with a pale yellow base and hints of pink.

Next is Clover!

 

Clover was released back in 2011 and I love the simplicity of her. She was released before Ty made every Beanie Boo glittery and I love that she just looks like a normal, simple lamb.

Third in my list is Hennie!

Hennie is the only “older” chicken Beanie Boo. What I mean by that is that she isn’t a baby chick like the other chicken Beanie Boos, she is a hen (hence her name). I love her fuzzy white feathers and red comb.

Up next is Lollypop!

Lollypop is a little bunny with colourful fur. She looks like what her name suggests, a lollypop! I think her pink nose goes perfectly with the white of her chin.

And finally…

It’s Fuzzy!

Fuzzy is the second Spring offering this year! I was actually torn between Fuzzy and Slippers (last year’s Easter bunny). They are both very similar, but I chose Fuzzy as I actually prefer her purple fur. She is one of those Beanie Boos that pictures don’t really do her justice and she is much cuter in real life.

Have a very Happy Easter!

Thursday, April 1st, 2021

Hi guys!

I’d just like to wish you all a lovely Easter!

Recently, I managed to get hold of Fuzzy and Feathers, the two Easter Beanie Boos for 2021! I must say I’ve changed my mind a little!

On a previous post, I said that Fuzzy was very similar to Slippers, last year’s Easter bunny and I wasn’t sure about her. She is very similar, BUT I really really like her! I love her colour and I think she’s just adorable!

Feathers is also the perfect match for Lemon Drop, last year’s Easter chick and is sooo fluffy and cute!

Both Fuzzy and Feather’s also make a great match, don’t you think?

The picture doesn’t do them justice as they look far better in real life.

I also picked up a bargain last weekend as Poundland (in the UK) had all of the smaller size Squish a Boos in stock for £5 each! So I picked up Bloomy and Popper!

These two are the new Easter Squish a Boos for this year, so I had to grab them while they were so cheep (oh dear…bad joke alert).

Here they are pictured next to Dotty, my larger sized Squish a Boo.

Aren’t they cute?! They are sooo squishy, and make great Easter decorations!

Hope you all have a very Happy Easter and stay safe!

New Site Update – Beanie Wishlist!

Monday, March 15th, 2021

Hi everyone!

I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend!

Yesterday was Mother’s Day here in the UK, and my wonderful daughter (with some help from Daddy) gave me two Beanie Boos!

Meet Gumball and Dotty! They are two that I’ve been wanting for a while, but for whatever reason, I just never seemed to get round to buying them! But I’m so grateful for my lovely present, they are both so cute!

I just wanted to share them both with you as they are now two of my favourite Beanie Boos and soooo colourful!

Anyway, the reason for this post…

I didn’t have the chance to post about it before, but last week a couple of improvements/fixes were made to the website!

One was something that has been requested before and something I have been meaning to add for sometime…a Beanie wishlist!

If you spot a Beanie while browsing the website that you want to add to your collection at a later date and you don’t want to forget who it is, you can now add it to your Wishlist area!

To add a Beanie to your Wishlist, click on the “Add it to my wishlist” link on the right-hand side of the page (see the screenshot below):

 

To view the Beanies in your Wishlist, visit the area at the top of the page called “My Wishlist” highlighted in the screenshot below:

Hope this is of use to you, and if you experience any issues, please get in touch!

Also, one of our members pointed out that you were no longer able to post comments/reviews on any of the Beanies. This issue has now been fixed! My apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Hope you like the new Wishlist feature and stay tuned for more Beanie updates!

8th March – Beanie Boo Birthdays!

Monday, March 8th, 2021

Hi everyone!

Happy International Women’s Day!

Today is a day to celebrate the achievements of women from around the world!

It is also the Birthday of four Beanie Boos!

The first of these Brunch.

Brunch is a white Spring/Easter Beanie Boo rabbit released last year and she carries a little orange carrot, ready to give to you as a present.

Next up is Mandy.

Mandy is a blue poodle and I absolutely ADORE her colour! I like the fact that Ty kept it simple with her and made her blue all over, from her curly fur to her glittery blue eyes!

The third Beanie Boo Birthday today is that of Piggley!

There were actually two versions of this cute little pig. The Piggley on the left of the image above was actually the first version back in 2016. Then, in 2017 he was re-released in the darker pink colour of the Piggley on the right.

Last, but not least, is Specks!

Specks, as her name suggests, is speckled in pink and purple all over her body. She also has beautiful, shiny pink inner ears and feet!

After that, there’s only one thing left to say!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRUNCH, MANDY, PIGGLEY AND SPECKS!

New additions to the Ty Puffies range, coming soon!

Friday, February 26th, 2021

Hi everyone!

Hope you are all well today? It’s a bright, sunny day here are Beaniepedia HQ and has been feeling a lot more like Spring recently, which makes a nice change from the miserable cold, Winter days that we’ve been having up until recently. Below is a picture of Roam enjoying the flowers yesterday during a walk in the park.

As I mentioned in my last post, I want to go through a few other new faces that are going to be appearing later in the Spring.

Six new Ty Puffies are going to be joining the range and they look sooo cute!

As you may already know, Puffies are a bit like a new, updated version of the retired Beanie Ballz range, except they are a bit fluffier and so far, are only available in one size. They are weighted at the bottom, so when you throw them in the air they always land on their feet.

Prince will soon have a new friend, with the addition of a brand new pink husky called Princess!

It looks like these two will be kind of an unofficial pair, since both are huskies and they both have royal titles (Prince, Princess).

Joining her with the “pink and white” theme will be Tabor the white tiger!

Tabor was originally released as a Beanie Baby and a Ty Classic. Later a Teeny Ty version appeared, and now she will be joining the Puffies range!

Next up is a little dog called Mandarin!

Mandarin, as his name suggests, is an orange-coloured dog with a brown patch over his right eye. I wouldn’t like to suggest what type of dog he is (I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments!), but he is really cute!

Dotty the leopard will also be joining the Puffies range!

Dotty was a rainbow coloured leopard Beanie Boo originally, but her popular design has featured across many product lines. I must admit, she is fabulous!

There is also going to be a new blue, pink and purple Puffie called Cleo!

Now, my first thoughts were that Cleo is supposed to be a cat, but after double-checking the Ty Calendar, she appears to actually be a husky, which I did not expect as she really doesn’t look like a husky at all! To me, she looks a little like a French Bulldog/Chihuahua? What do you guys think?

And finally my absolute favourite of the new Puffies….

Gizmo!

I just love the vibrant colours on this little kitty and her mismatched eyes are co cute! They kind of remind me of Heather’s odd-eyes. On top of that, I love the name Gizmo. Firstly, because Gremlins was one of my favourite movies as a kid, and also I used to have a pet rat called Gizmo (named after the main character in the movie – R.I.P. little guy!).

What do you think of the new Ty Puffies? Which is your favourite? Leave a comment below!

Introducing the new Easter Beanie Boos for Spring 2021!

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021

Hi everyone!

Sorry it’s been so long since my last post. I’ve been giving my daughter’s room a much-needed makeover which has taken much longer than I bargained for!

I was so disappointed that Ty weren’t releasing any Valentine’s Day Beanie Boos this year. Last year we had some adorable Valentine’s Beanie Boos, like Dainty the curly-haired flamingo and Aphrodite the pink husky, but sadly this year we had none.

However, in the Ty calendar there are a few Easter treats in store for us, as well a some other new faces joining them!

Today, I’m going to introduce to you the new Easter Beanies!

First up is Fuzzy!

Fuzzy is almost a twin of last year’s Easter rabbit Beanie Boo, Slippers. The only difference is Fuzzy is purple instead of white and they have a slightly different eye colour. Slippers is pictured below so you can compare the two.

Although I love the design of these two bunnies (their little slippers are adorable!), I’m a little disappointed that Ty haven’t at least changed the design a little as they are practically identical!

The second Easter Beanie Boo is Feathers!

Feathers, as you can probably tell, is an Easter chick. Ty usually release a chick Beanie Boo for Spring (last year we had the cute little yellow chick, Lemon Drop) so it’s not really a surprise as such. However, I think they’ve got Feathers just right! I love her pink-tinged colour which makes her look so cuddly!

As far as I know, these are the only two Easter Beanie Boos, but there will also be two new Squish a Boos making an appearance!

Bloomy is the first of these, and she will be available in both a large 14″ size and the new small 10″ size.

Bloomy is of course based on the Beanie Boo rabbit, also called Bloomy (pictured below).

The second Squish a Boo coming out shortly is Popper.

Popper is a brand new design who doesn’t have a Beanie Boo counterpart. He/she is a bright yellow chick sitting inside a white eggshell.

Popper, like Bloomy, will also be available in the small 10″ size and large 14″ size.

All of these new Beanies are due to be released either this month or next, so keep your eyes open for them!

There are also some more new faces coming out soon which I will post up shortly, so stay tuned!

I know I have quite a few emails to get through, which I will try and reply to as soon as I can and I will also be adding your Beanie requests on to the site. If I haven’t added your request yet, it should be in there soon.

Hope you’re all well, and please stay safe! (also Roam says Hi!)
