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!

Happy Birthday Lilac!

Friday, May 29th, 2020

Well it’s that time of the week again…it’s Friday! It’s also the Birthday of a cute, little kitty called Lilac!

Lilac is part of the Teeny Tys range. I only just added her to the website yesterday before realising it was actually her Birthday today!

She features flippable sequins that change from a mixture of pink shades to a silvery, sparkly colour when you run your hand over them. Her sparkly green eyes really pop out from the pinky shades of her sequins.

I think we can all agree this little feline is just adorable!

Do you have Lilac in your collection?

New features on Beaniepedia!

Tuesday, May 26th, 2020

Hi everyone! Just a quick announcement to let you know about the brand new features on Beaniepedia!

A few people have expressed (including myself) that they would love to be able to sort Beanies in the database alphabetically when searching. Well…now you can!

On each category of Beanie, there is a drop-down box on the top right of the page that is defaulted to “Latest added”. If you click on this, you can sort alphabetically by ascending order (ASC) or descending order (DESC). You can also sort your collection alphabetically in the “My Beanies” section of the website.

On the “My Beanies” section, you can now filter through your own Beanies in your collection by year, colour and animal type!

You can also now share your collection with your friends if you choose to.

Also, I’m happy to announce that after quite a few requests, I have been adding more Teeny Tys to the website. I have been meaning to add them in for a while now! I have more to go just yet, but the rest will be going up on the website shortly.

Thanks for visiting our website and I hope you continue to enjoy using it! Stay safe everyone!

Hope Beanie Boo

Wednesday, May 20th, 2020

Later this year, we are expecting a new Beanie Boo bear to be released!

Meet Hope.

At the moment, the Hope bear (not to be confused with the 1999 Beanie Baby, also named Hope) is now only available for pre-order from the Ty Store, and it states on their website that they will ship in late Summer.

 

Hope was announced following the news of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic and is being released to raise funds for the United Way Worldwide Fund to fight against the coronavirus.

United Way Worldwide is a non-profit organisation where charities can pool their funds to help each other.

Hope’s poem reads as follows:

When you go to sleep tonight,
Pray everything will be all right.
And if you keep Hope in your heart,
We’ll stay together and never part!

Are you pre-ordering Hope for your collection?

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!

Four new exclusive moose Beanie Boos!

Tuesday, February 18th, 2020

Today, I was scoping out the Ty Calendar and spotted four new faces on there!

Meet Rasmus, Harald, Birger and Väinö!

Each of these adorable moose Beanie Boos represent Scandinavian countries. Rasmus for Denmark, Harald for Norway, Birger for Sweden and Väinö for Finland. Even their hooves and antlers are the colours of their country’s flag!

They appear to be European exclusives (possibly exclusive to their counterpart countries, but that is pure speculation on my part).

So far, they don’t appear to be available anywhere, so I’m assuming they haven’t been released yet. But aren’t they cute?!

Rain, Rain, Go Away!

Saturday, February 15th, 2020

Today at Beaniepedia HQ, we’re experiencing some pretty miserable wet and windy weather with Storm Dennis, so I thought I’d introduce you all to someone well equipped for the rain!

 

This cute little bear is called Gordon. He was part of the original Attic Treasures range (before the re-introduction of the line) and released in January 1999.

I think his little bright yellow rain jacket and hat are just adorable!

The Attic Treasures didn’t really have a poem inside their swing tag, but rather a short phrase. Gordon’s was:

“Into Each Life a Little
Rain Must Fall !”

So if you have some rainy weather wherever you are, or you’re just having a bad day in general, I hope this little bear cheers you up a little bit.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!
