Beanie Review – Peachy the Cat

Monday, February 24th, 2020

This weekend, I decided to add another Beanie Boo to my collection, which turned into two Beanie Boos, then two Beanie Boos and four Beanie Babies and THEN two Beanie Boos, four Beanie Babies and a Ty Classic!

I started out bidding on Kiki, then I saw that Jamal had gone down in price on Amazon UK, then I found four Beanie Babies going cheap in a discount store (Tooter, Stinky, white paws Nip and another Peace bear) and then I fell in love with a Ty Classic cat called Peachy.

Today I’m going to review Peachy the long-haired cat.

Peachy is from the Ty Classic line and features luxurious white fur, airbrushed with a very light brown to make her fur appear more real. Her fur is longer on her back and tail.

Her eyes are a gorgeous bright blue colour and she has a cute little peach coloured nose that stands out from the white of her fur. Her whiskers are slightly off-white and her mouth is made from peach coloured thread.

Peachy has a slightly different swing tag from the Beanie Babies range. Her swing tag is a 4th generation Ty Classic tag, which is the same red colour as Beanie Baby swing tags and still features the white “Ty” logo, but features the word “Classic” in gold foil to the upper right of the tag.

The inside of the swing tag doesn’t have a poem like the Beanie Baby range (4th generation onwards or course), but is more akin to 3rd generation Beanie Baby tags with the name (Peachy in this case), and spaces to write “To” and “From”.

The tush tag is quite simple and doesn’t feature a name like on Beanie Baby or Beanie Boo tags. It is also made from a different type of fabric, with more of an embroidered feel to it.

I really like how realistic Peachy looks, and its one of the reasons I couldn’t resist adding her to my collection. She is slightly under-stuffed, so you can pose her lying down or sat up (pictured below).

Ty Classics aren’t the most common collectible Ty produce (Beanie Babies and Beanie Boos are more popular for collectors), however they are so well made, and have such attention to detail that Beanie Babies and Beanie Boos just don’t have (although I love them all!).

What do you think of Peachy?

Top 5 Valentine’s Day Beanie Babies

Sunday, February 9th, 2020

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I have decided to compile a list of my top five personal favourite Valentine’s Day Beanie Babies!

1. Valentino

Valentino was one of the first Beanie Baby bears I got (along with Halo and Fuzz) so has a sentimental value to me.

His poem reads as follows:

His heart is red and full of love
He cares for you so give him a hug
Keep him close when feeling blue
Feel the love he has for you!

Although I love Valentino, there is so much false information out there about him, mainly regarding his rarity and value.

To clear things up a bit, Valentino is only worth any more than a few dollars when he has a 2nd or 3rd generation swing tag, the 2nd generation being worth several hundreds of dollars if it is in absolutely mint condition.

There was a rumour that if Valentino has a brown nose then he is worth more. The truth is that all Valentino bears had a brown nose. There was no other colour variation available.

Finally, errors in the tag add absolutely nothing to his value. Tag errors were produced in the millions and are very common among most Beanie Babies.

Having said that, I love Valentino and think he’s a lovely bear.

2. Lovely

Lovely is an adorable little white dog covered in a red heart pattern. She reminds me a bit of a dalmatian dog as the heart pattern looks a bit like red spots and I just love the bright red ribbon she has tied around her neck.

Her poem reads:

A wagging dog so cute and sweet
Is bringing you a special treat
Many warm hugs meant just for you
A more lovely pup you never knew!

So cute!

3. Garfield – Happy Valentine’s Day

I’m sure you have all heard of Garfield the cat, the popular comic series created by Jim Davis. Since he has appeared in his own TV series and even feature length movies.

The cynical, lasagne-loving feline has even been made into a few licensed Beanie Babies, one of which is the “Happy Valentine’s Day” version, pictured above.

His poem reads:

Love is splitting the
last plate of
pasta!

4. Romance

Romance is one of the newer “pot belly” design teddy bears, in fact she was the first to feature this new look.

She is a pale pink with highlights of hot pink mixed in and has a cute little heart-shaped nose.

Her poem reads:

Valentine’s Day is the perfect chance
To give some love and show romance
This little bear can hardly wait
She wants to help you celebrate!

And finally…

5. Smoothie

Smoothie was a cute white giraffe covered in bright red hearts. Her gorgeous fluffy red mane runs down her long neck and she has a tuft of bright red fur on the end of her tail.

Smoothie’s poem reads:

I will search high in the trees
For someone that I can squeeze
My Valentine will meet me there
And we will make the perfect pair!

What did you think of this list? What are your favourite Valentine’s Day Beanie Babies.

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?
