Tremor in Space!

Sunday, May 31st, 2020

Tremor the dinosaur Flippable

On Saturday, two astronauts (Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley) were launched in to space aboard the SpaceX ship, Crew Dragon.

But the real star of the show was the sight of a small, sparkly dinosaur accompanying them! Tremor!

Tremor is one of the original three Flippables, the other two being Stompy and Crunch, and came in either a small or medium size.

Unexpectedly, the little dinosaur has now had a boost in fame, and is currently going for about £20-30 in the UK including postage and about $30-40 in the USA! Which I’m kicking myself for now, as I was thinking of bidding on on eBay for one last week that was going for much less and forgot to place a bid! (sigh!)

The reason for Tremor’s expedition into space was that the astronaut’s sons both had a passion for dinosaurs and collected all their dinosaur toys together so one could be picked for the launch. Tremor was the dinosaur selected and here he is!

However, Tremor’s trip to space wasn’t without reason. Plush toys are often taken into space and when they start to float, it shows the astronauts when they have reached zero-g and are experiencing weightlessness.

Do you have Tremor in your collection?

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!

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!

Unicorns, Unicorns and More Unicorns!

Friday, January 31st, 2020

Unicorn lovers, rejoice! Coming to stores either next month or in March are two new Flippables and one new Beanie Boo!

This month, we’ve already been spoilt with Darling, the brand new Valentine’s Day unicorn Beanie Boo. So who else is joining her?

First, we have Fantasia.

Now don’t confuse her with the 2015 unicorn Beanie Boo, also called Fantasia, although I think the two could be related. This Flippables Fantasia is covered in reversible sequins that change from pink to gold.

The next Flippables on the list is Cosmo.

Cosmo has reversible sequins are arranged in a rainbow-coloured check pattern. In fact, everything about her is colourful, from her rainbow glittery eyes, to her multicoloured hooves.

Finally, there is Gumball.

Gumball is a pink unicorn Beanie Boo with patches of hot pink, turquoise and grey. Her colouring really does look like it could be on a gumball.

So there you have it! All three unicorns to look out for over the next couple of months. I know my niece will love these when she hears about them (she ADORES unicorns!).

Which one do you like best?

One for the Cat Lovers…

Wednesday, January 29th, 2020

For all the cat lovers following us, keep your eyes peeled for these two new cat Beanie Boos and one Flippables! They are due to be released in the coming weeks, with some sources speculating February or March.

First up is Asher. Asher looks to be a breed of long-haired cat with a grey head and white body. She is part of the “unicorn animal” range that Ty have been producing for some time now. She features a sparkly pink unicorn horn on top of her head.

Next we have Reagan. Reagan is a pink cat with curly fur. She appears to be a Valentine’s Day Beanie Boo, and the fact she could be released at any moment it would make perfect sense. Reagan’s fur looks to be the same colour and texture as the flamingo Beanie Boo, Dainty.

And finally, the last cat due to appear on the shelves is the new Flippables, Confetti! Confetti, as her name suggests, is covered in multicoloured reversible sequins that resemble confetti. Her colours are gorgeous!

 

As mentioned above, look for these new Beanie Boos to start appearing either next month or in March. Watch out for further updates on these and other Ty products that are coming soon!

Which of these cats are you most looking forward to seeing?

Bonnie and Tulip Flippables!

Tuesday, April 16th, 2019

Easter is nearly upon us, and so are two new Spring-themed Flippables!

The first of these is Bonnie, a cute little rabbit with white and pink sequins. Her white, fuzzy belly is the only part of her, except her white muzzle, pink inner ears, hands and feet that is not covered in sequins.

Bonnie’s poem reads:

When you see how sparkly I am
You’ll want to jump and hop
If you rub my head, back and forth
You’ll never want to stop!

Her Birthday is on 4th May.

Here is Bonnie is pictured below. Isn’t she adorable?!

Another new Easter-themed Flippable is Tulip.

Tulip is a little lamb with silver and pink/white flippable sequins that is just too adorable to resist! Her sequins replace her wool, and almost cover her entire body apart from her peach-coloured face and her sparkly pink hooves.

Her poem reads:

I’m a lamb but have no wool
My coat is sequin Flippable!

Tulip’s Birthday is on 27th April.

Take a look at Tulip, pictured below:

What do you think of these two Springtime Flippables? Do you own have them in your collection yet?

We’ve had snow!

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

Today we had a bit of unexpected snowfall. Here’s Scorch demonstrating…

We’ve had nowhere near the amount of snow as some other parts of Europe have had though. To those of you who are in the middle of it all, I hope you are all well, and most importantly, stay safe.

It’s been a bit of a slow day here today, so I’ve spent some time updating the site. If you are on a page with a particular type of Beanie, for example a bear, and you want to see only bears, you are now able to filter all the bear Beanies that are currently on the site. The same can also be done for the release year and colour.

I have also added all of the available Flippables, so you can now add them to your collection. If I’ve missed any, please let me know!

Here’s hoping this snow finally ends!
