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!
