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?

Upcoming Beanie Boo Koala to Help Australian Wildlife

Monday, January 20th, 2020

Meet Katy.

Katy is an adorable Koala Beanie Boo due to hit stores in March this year.

Ty announced that they would be releasing Katy to help raise funds for the Australian animal rescue organisation, WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.) and that 100% of the profits from the sale of Katy will go towards rescuing wildlife during the devastating wildfires that are currently sweeping across Australia.

WIRES are based in New South Wales, but have been working nationally for a while now, with over 2500 volunteers rescuing animals across the country.

 

WIRES was recommended by the Koala Foundation and other not-for-profit organisations to receive the donations as the situation is far beyond what they can cope with and WIRES have the best resources and national reach to handle this enormous task.

My thoughts go out to those who are having to cope during this dreadful time. I can’t even begin to imagine what you must be going through. Please, stay safe.

If you wish to donate to WIRES, please do so through their website.

Katy will be released worldwide sometime in March.

Bonnie and Tulip Flippables!

Tuesday, April 16th, 2019

Easter is nearly upon us, and so are two new Spring-themed Flippables!

The first of these is Bonnie, a cute little rabbit with white and pink sequins. Her white, fuzzy belly is the only part of her, except her white muzzle, pink inner ears, hands and feet that is not covered in sequins.

Bonnie’s poem reads:

When you see how sparkly I am
You’ll want to jump and hop
If you rub my head, back and forth
You’ll never want to stop!

Her Birthday is on 4th May.

Here is Bonnie is pictured below. Isn’t she adorable?!

Another new Easter-themed Flippable is Tulip.

Tulip is a little lamb with silver and pink/white flippable sequins that is just too adorable to resist! Her sequins replace her wool, and almost cover her entire body apart from her peach-coloured face and her sparkly pink hooves.

Her poem reads:

I’m a lamb but have no wool
My coat is sequin Flippable!

Tulip’s Birthday is on 27th April.

Take a look at Tulip, pictured below:

What do you think of these two Springtime Flippables? Do you own have them in your collection yet?

Another New Beanie Boo for 2019!

Monday, January 28th, 2019

Here is yet another adorable Beanie Boo due to be released soon!

Her name is Scrappy the Cat and she is due to be released anytime soon. Hopefully she’ll be released within the next month! Here she is pictured below:

Scrappy will be a scruffy grey and beige cat with glittery pink eyes. So far I have no information on her poem or Birthday, but hopefully I can update that soon.

Scrappy appears to have almost curly fur, which is different to any other Beanie Boos that have been released.

What do you think of Scrappy?

New Beanie Boo Alert for 2019!

Thursday, January 24th, 2019

This brand new Beanie Boo is called Giselle! She’s just been released for 2019!

Giselle the Unicorn Leopard is the next addition to the range of Beanie Boos that magically grew a horn and became a unicorn!

The first three Beanie Boos in this range are Heather the Unicorn Cat, Ramsey the Unicorn Lion and Enchanted the Unicorn Owl. Here they are pictured below:

There have also been some other additions in the range. Another Unicorn Lion named Layla was released in October 2018 and Begonia the Unicorn Rabbit was introduced earlier this month!

I love this unicorn animal range! They are so colourful and bright, and super adorable! I really hope Ty produce more of them!

Do you have any of the Unicorn animals yet?

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?

Another new Beanie Boo alert!

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

This cute little chick Beanie Boo has been spotted on the internet!

It’s name is Megg and she appears to be a new Easter-themed Beanie Boo for 2019!

Her Birthday is on 15th March and her swing tag reads:

My rainbow shell I have to crack
So I can get a candy snack.

Megg appears to be available in both 6″ and 9″ sizes so far and also appears to be exclusive to Walgreens, although I can’t confirm that yet.

Have you spotted Megg yet?

We’ve had snow!

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

Today we had a bit of unexpected snowfall. Here’s Scorch demonstrating…

We’ve had nowhere near the amount of snow as some other parts of Europe have had though. To those of you who are in the middle of it all, I hope you are all well, and most importantly, stay safe.

It’s been a bit of a slow day here today, so I’ve spent some time updating the site. If you are on a page with a particular type of Beanie, for example a bear, and you want to see only bears, you are now able to filter all the bear Beanies that are currently on the site. The same can also be done for the release year and colour.

I have also added all of the available Flippables, so you can now add them to your collection. If I’ve missed any, please let me know!

Here’s hoping this snow finally ends!
