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 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?

Mini Boos Unboxing – Series 1

Monday, February 3rd, 2020

Another Poundland find this weekend!

Last week I reviewed Zappy as I found him and a few other Beanie Boos, including Orson and Nori in Poundland for only £2! As I previously mentioned, Poundland is a UK discount store that sells items for between £1-5.

This time, I came home with one of the Mini Boos!

Mini Boos are hand-painted figurine versions of Beanie Boos that come in a concealed box with a question mark on the front.

I had previously purchased one of the Mini Boos from Poundland and I received Kiki (pictured below), a cute grey tabby cat with a pink bow. When I came back to buy another one, they had all sold out! However, they now have a new batch in stock again! Yay!

On the back of the box are all the pictures of all the Mini Boos available in the series. This box happens to be from the first series. The only Mini Boo not pictured is what is known as the “Mystery Chaser”, a rare Mini Boo that is only available in smaller quantities.

Inside each box is a bagged Mini Boo figurine and a Mini Boos checklist. For some reason, I’ve ended up with two checklists. I’m pretty sure there is only meant to be one as that was what I got with Kiki originally.

Each checklist has the different Mini Boos available for each series with their picture, name and a circle that you can tick when you get each one. There is also a Mystery Chaser picture that you can tick if you’re lucky enough to get it.

Finally, it was time for me to open the box and the Mini Boo inside was…Safari! The Safari Mini Boo is based on the Beanie Boo, also called Safari, who was released in 2010.

Isn’t he adorable?

Safari will sit nicely on my desk alongside the Kiki Mini Boo I got previously. I’m sure more will join them both at some point.

Here they are pictured together.

There are currently four series of Mini Boos available, and I’m now hooked! And this is just the first series!

Do you have any Mini Boos in your collection?

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?

New Flippables for 2019!

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

I have come across these brand new Ty Flippables for 2019!

The first of these appears to be a version of the Dangler Beanie Boo, but instead is covered in brown sequins that flip to a gold colour. The Dangler Flippable has large, gold glitter eyes just like his Beanie Boo counterpart.
Dangler the Sloth Flippable Beanie BooNext up, there’s a rainbow coloured Flippable called Calypso the Narwhal. His brightly coloured reversible sequins are all sorts of different colours and he has a sparkly gold horn. He seems to be based on Nori the Narwhal, especially with the rainbow colouring.

I have also seen this cat Flippable floating around called Whimsy. She has silver coloured flippable sequins that change to a pearly iridescent colour when you stroke them. She looks so cute!

Whimsy the Cat Flippable Beanie BooI also found a picture of this cute little seal Flippable called Waves. He’s a kind of pearly turquoise colour, but I’m not really sure what colour his sequins are when they’re flipped.

There’s also a new Pixy the Unicorn Flippable. She is just like the Beanie Boo version of Pixy, only she is covered in flippable pearly white sequins that flip to a kind of pink colour. Her glitter eyes are also rainbow coloured.

Pixy the Unicorn Flippable Beanie BooThere is another unicorn called Sunset that is an orange-pink, almost salmon coloured “sunset” colour. She has a glittery gold horn and a fluffy pink mane.

Finally, I’ve also seen Slush the Husky in a Flippable form. He looks a lot like the Slush Beanie Boo, only his fur has been transformed into flippable sequins that alternate between blue and silver.

Have you come across any of these new Beanie Boos? If you have any information on them, please let me know!

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?
