Top 10 Rare Beanie Boos 2020

Wednesday, December 9th, 2020

Hi everyone!

Today I’ve been filming for today’s Vlogmas video, which will be released a little bit later on. I have also been adding more of your Beanie requests, so look out for those!

For now, I’ve decided to show you what I think are my top 10 rare and hard to find Beanie Boos!

(These are in no particular order of rarity, or in order of who I like the best).

10. Slush

Slush is one of the original seven Beanie Boos.

Now Slush in himself isn’t actually that hard to find. However, I’m talking about the 1st variation of Slush.

Now the difference between this first edition version of Slush and the newer variations of Slush are the ears. Newer Slush Beanie Boos have blue inner ears and the first version’s inner ears are white. The underside of his tail is also white compared to the newer versions which have a blue tip.

2. Rasmus

Next up is the adorable moose Beanie Boo, Rasmus!

Now I had to pick a Beanie Boo here as there are actually five Country exclusive moose Beanie Boos and I didn’t want to list them all. The other four are Väinö, Harald, Birger and Egert. You can actually get hold of these guys but they are all upwards of $30 which is why I have included them. Aren’t they just so cute?!

3. Coconut

Another one of the original seven, Coconut again isn’t that hard to find, but the first version of Coconut is a lot rarer.

Earlier versions had peach coloured ears instead of the purple inner ears are the later version. The first Coconut Beanie Boos also had a solid brown tail, whereas the later versions had a purple tip. There is also a noticeable difference in the texture of the fur between the two.

4. Kiwi

Of course, I’m talking about Kiwi the frog, not the later Kiwi Beanie Boo, which is a kiwi bird.

All versions of Kiwi are hard to find, but the rarest is the very first version.

The first version had a yellow belly, chin and toes and blue button eyes. On later versions, his belly, chin and toes were light pink and his eyes were pink.

5. Bubblegum

When I’m talking about Bubblegum, I mean the original seven Koala, not Bubblegum the lemur.

Bubblegum was part of the very first UK release of Beanie Boos. He was later discontinued, redesigned slightly and renamed Kooky. Those with the original Bubblegum name are very rare.

6. Peanut

Peanut in general isn’t particularly rare, but the first variation is very hard to find.

Peanut was one of the original seven Beanie Boos that were released in the UK. All the original first release Beanie Boos were retired and replaced with eight redesigned Beanie Boos, which didn’t include Peanut. Instead, Bubblegum the Koala was renamed Kooky and a pink lemur appeared with the Bubblegum name alongside a Bush Baby called Cleo.

Later, another Peanut Beanie Boo elephant appeared, but he is not considered one of the original seven.

The first version of Peanut had pink inner ears, pink on the end of her trunk and pink toes.

7. Treasure

Treasure was one of the first Justice Stores exclusive Beanie Boos, who was released alongside Sapphire the zebra.

They were also the first Beanie Boos to feature the newer glittery Beanie Boo eyes!

Treasure is really hard to find as she was the first Justice Stores exclusive, and regularly sells for between $50-100!

(Ignore the really highly priced eBay listings. These are just the price people have listed them for, not what they have actually SOLD for. For more information on how to price Beanies, please see my What are My Beanies Worth guide).

8. T-Bone

I’m not sure whether I can actually consider T-Bone a “rare” Beanie Boo as such, but he is certainly harder to find than most, especially for a low price and in good condition.

T-Bone was actually a Trade Show exclusive that could only be obtained by Ty retailers that visited the Ty booths at one of the 2014 Winter Toy Fairs. The remaining Beanie Boos that weren’t collected, were made available for sale until they were out of stock.

I don’t know what it is but I love the chihuahua Beanie Boos! They are just co cute, so I had to include one! My favourite would have to be Nacho (because I loooove Nachos!), but I can’t really call him rare so couldn’t justify putting him on the list.

9. Waddles

Waddles was one of the original seven Beanie Boos. The later versions of Waddles were quite common, but the very first variation is really hard to get hold of.

The first version of Waddles had orange feet instead of the blue feet featured on later models. He also didn’t have blue under his wings. His fur was a slightly different texture too.

Waddles is very popular and has been released across many Ty lines, including Ty Puffies and Mini Boos.

10. Loy

Loy was a Japanese exclusive Beanie Boo. He isn’t “rare” as such, but as he was only released in Japan, he is a little harder to find in the West.

He is based on the Japanese Akita dog breed and featured a special Japanese swing tag.

I’m sorry if I missed anyone off the list! These were my personal top 10 rare/harder-to-find Beanie Boos.

Who would you put on this list?

Loy the Akita Dog

Thursday, February 20th, 2020

Recently, we discovered that there are five upcoming European exclusive moose Beanie Boos. These were Rasmus (Denmark), Väinö (Finland), Harald (Norway), Birger (Sweden) and Egert (Estonia).

Well, dog lovers will be excited about this new, country exclusive Beanie Boo!

This is Loy.

Loy is an Akita dog exclusively available in Japan. He is a gorgeous orange/brown colour with golden, sparkly eyes and a white face and belly.

His Birthday is on 10th November and his poem reads:

No truer companion will you ever find
I’m loyal and loving to all of mankind.

Akita dogs are a breed of Japanese dog well equipped for the mountainous regions of Japan. They are a large breed and normally have a dominant temperament, so are not recommended for those without experience of the breed.

Below is an example of what a real Akita would look like.

Loy however, requires no training whatsoever and is just adorable!

So far, I’m not sure if Loy has been released. I’ve tried looking on the Ty Japan website, but I can’t find him on there, so I’m assuming he probably isn’t yet. Please, let me know if you find out otherwise.

What do you think of Loy?
