Kodi the Beanie Baby Bear!

Kodi the Bear Beanie Baby

Hi everyone! It was my Birthday yesterday and I was given the most fantastic present…a Kodi the bear Beanie Baby!

I am so besotted with him! He has the sweetest little face with gorgeous, sparkly orange-gold eyes, which are large but not quite as large as that of a Beanie Boo.

He also has the most adorable smile in the world!

Who wouldn’t be cheered up by that little face?!

His fur is very soft, and an almost-black colour with hints of dark brown mixed in. I love his beige muzzle and inner ears against the dark of his fur, and his little beige paws.

Kodi the Bear Face

I think that Kodi is meant to be an Alaskan Kodiak Bear, just based on his name. Although, I’d say he has more of the colouration of an American Black Bear over that of a Kodiak Bear.

Kodi’s Hang Tag

He has a 19th generation Beanie Babies hang tag, but interestingly even though we are away in Europe right now (Bulgaria), he has the USA variation of this hang tag.

Kodi’s Birthday is on 7th February and his poem reads as follows:

When I scratch my back it is something to see
I’ll stand up and rub it against a tall tree!

There are not many places that sell Beanie Babies in Bulgaria, for instance, near us there is only one bookshop that stocks them. But, when they do sell them, they seem to put an import sticker on the hang tag over here, like the one on Kodi’s tag below…

Luckily, they haven’t put it over the actual poem this time (believe me this has been done before…), and it was stuck on the additional “Important Information” hang tags instead.

My thoughts on the Kodi Beanie Baby…

Kodi the Bear

Kodi is possibly one of my favourite “Beanie Boo-style” Beanie Babies and not just because he was given to me as a Birthday present! I’ve wanted him for so long, but just never got round to buying him for whatever reason.

He has the sweetest face and his fur is such a beautiful, luxurious colour.

Kodi is also available as a Ty Classic, which I don’t have yet, so one day I may have to get him a big brother!

I won a limited edition Fraya Beanie Baby!

Monday, May 20th, 2024

Hi everyone! I’m so excited! I can’t believe I’m writing this, but I won a limited edition, numbered Fraya Beanie Baby!

I entered a competition on Instagram held by Ty UK, and couldn’t believe that I (along with a few others) won!

Fraya the flamingo is one of the latest Beanie Baby releases, along with Emmett the dinosaur and Domino the panda.

She is the most beautiful, bright pink colour with turquoise coloured, long legs and a bright yellow beak. The underside of her wings is a pistachio green. She really is quite a colourful Beanie Baby!

My limited edition Fraya Beanie Baby

Here she is! My gorgeous, sealed Fraya the flamingo! Numbered 23/30!

I love the little picture on the front with all three Beanie Babies from this set sat around an erupting volcano, with Fraya dipping her feet in the river.

She also has an additional 30th Anniversary hang tag. From what I gather, it is also numbered, but I haven’t opened, and will not be opening the packaging to see it properly.

You can just about see it from the picture below, just poking out from behind the “Ty” hang tag.

It just goes to show that it is actually worth entering the Ty Instagram competitions!

Will I be selling her?

Unfortunately no. I’m so happy to have won her and can’t see myself ever selling her. She will have a special place in my collection.

Is Fraya my first competition win?

Also, no. I have actually entered these competitions before and won a limited edition numbered Silver II Beanie Baby!

She is numbered 22/20 and was also another Ty UK competition win!

Again, I will not be selling her as she is my absolute favourite Beanie Baby competition win!

She also has the sweetest face! How could I possibly sell her?!

I’m so happy to have won these two, and I cannot thank Ty UK enough for holding these competitions and allowing us the chance to own one of these adorable, limited edition Beanie Babies!
