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?

Beanie Baby Birthday – Mukluk the Husky!

Wednesday, February 26th, 2020

Today is the 26th February, which means only one thing….

It’s Mukluk’s Birthday!

Mukluk is a mottled grey husky with a white face, belly and legs. His Birthday is on 26th February 2003 and his poem reads:

Just say “mush” and watch me run
I love the snow, it’s so much fun
And when the day is finally through
I’d love to cuddle up with you!

There are two versions of Mukluk: one version with white eyes and another with one blue eye, one green eye. Both versions have the same style number of 40031.

Aren’t they both so cute?!

The name “Mukluk” comes from the Arctic aboriginal word for any kind of soft boot used for cold weather. Traditionally, these were made from reindeer or seal skin, but now they are either made from traditional or modern materials.

Happy Birthday Mukluk! Do you have any of these two Beanie Babies?

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.
