It’s Monday!

Monday, November 9th, 2020

Hi everyone!

As the title says, it’s Monday again at Beaniepedia HQ and it’s a bit of a damp day again (what’s new?!).

Last week was my daughter’s 1st Birthday and she loved her new Beanie Boo, Chase! She loves Paw Patrol and it’s her favourite character, so I just HAD to get him for her!

The only problem is he is so cute that now I want the set too!

I have also finally got hold of all the Christmas Beanie Boos and Puffies, which I’m very excited about!

Here they are pictured below:

From left to right, on the back row we have Cheer the penguin, Chimney the mouse, Snowfall the unicorn and Howlidays the dog. Just sat in front of them are Brie the mouse and Fudge the reindeer.

I love them all but I think if I had to pick, my two favourites would have to be the two mice, Chimney and Brie.

Last weekend, I also came across some bargains that might be of use to those in the UK, although it may be worth waiting until after lockdown now as they only have a limited selection online and there were more choices in-store. I found two medium-sized Flippables in TK Maxx for quite a reasonable price! Tegan the reindeer was £9.99 (I think she cost more because of Christmas coming up) and Charmed was reduced to £8.00. There were also other Flippables available and medium Beanie Boos too.

I also found both Asha and Orson Beanie Boos and Arctic and Freckles from the Beanie Babies range in Poundland for £2 each!

The only shame was that in my local Poundland they have stopped selling Mini Boos! The was a bit of a disappointment as they were only £1 each and I was looking forward to collecting them! Oh well, you win some, you lose some!

Today, I’ve been spending some time on Beanie requests that aren’t yet on the website. I apologise that I haven’t had chance to reply to your emails yet, but I will try to shortly later today. But in any case, the emails I have got through, just to let you know the Beanies you couldn’t find have now been added to the database. Hopefully I’ll get a bit more time later on today to add a few more in as well.

Have a great Monday folks and Happy Collecting!

Mini Boos Series 1 & 2 Unboxing

Saturday, May 30th, 2020

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely Saturday!

Today, I took a rare trip to Poundland (a discount store in the UK), as I needed some supplies. I hadn’t been there for about two months or more (I’ve lost track of time now) but was in desperate need of a few things.

While there I found they are still selling Beanie Boos. The same faces were there from before (Orson, Asha, Aqua, Icy and Zappy) so it doesn’t look like they’ve updated the range recently – at least not in my area. They were also still selling some items of Ty Fashion among the Beanie Boos. One thing I found interesting though were that my local store have started selling series 2 Mini Boos as well as series 1!

I decided to pick up one series 1 and two series 2 boxes.

I’ll start with the series 1 box.

As I’ve said before, there are 12 common Mini Boos available in each series, plus one rare “mystery chaser”. Each box comes with a checklist of all the Mini Boos available in the series (with the exception of the chaser, which is shown as a yellow silhouette with a red “?” over the front.

The common Mini Boos available in Series 1 are Waddles, Slush, Duke, Icy, Kiki, Coconut, Sammy, Fantasia, Bamboo, Leona, Safari and Pinky. The chaser for this series is a rainbow coloured leopard called Dotty.

The Mini Boo I received with this packet was….Coconut!

Coconut is a cute little monkey with a dark brown, fuzzy texture all over his head and body. His glittery purple eyes are surrounded by a cream coloured face and he has a hand-painted nose and mouth.

Next up is the first of my series 2 boxes.

Like the series 1 box, it comes with a little checklist of the Mini Boos available for this series. In series 2, you can get either Blueberry, Boom Boom, Gilbert, Glitter, Ice Cube, Owlette, Precious, Skylar, Squirt, Tabitha, Tasha or Tundra, plus the mystery chaser, Glitz the golden unicorn.

Inside this box was….Precious!

Precious is an adorable bright pink dog with sparkly purple eyes. She has one purple ear and one bright orange ear. Under her left eye is a patch of bright orange and she also has an orange tail.

Finally, now for the last series 2 box.

Pretty much the same as the last box, with the exception of an orange question mark on the front instead of blue. The bag was even the same green colour.

And now to find out which Mini Boo is inside…

Uh-oh! Double trouble!

Well I got another Precious, so now I have two! Oh well, better luck next time! At least they can keep each other company.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
