Keep safe everyone!

Monday, March 23rd, 2020

Hi everyone!

Sorry I’ve been a little quiet lately. It’s all gone a bit crazy since my last post.

As you have almost certainly heard, we are currently in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. I’m still here and keeping safe, and I hope everyone is also feeling well and following the guidelines set out by their country. We all need to do our bit at the moment to help everyone out during this time.

I also hope everyone had a lovely Mother’s Day in the UK, despite perhaps not being able to celebrate in quite the same way as usual.

Now more than ever, we need to discover the importance of keeping ourselves occupied in the comfort of our own homes. I know many parents will be looking for ideas to keep their children busy and still learning now that the schools are shut in the UK.

Arts and crafts are great for keeping little minds occupied. One idea could be to draw their favourite Beanie Boo or Beanie Baby in different scenarios (perhaps a springtime picture to brighten things up), or make a comic strip with a short story. Or creating clothes and accessories for their Beanie Boo using craft supplies or things around the home. Pinterest is great for ideas if you’re stuck!

Jigsaw puzzles or board games are good for passing time and baking is great fun and brilliant for learning a new skill. There’s even a treat at the end of it!

Scorch (pictured above) has got his day sorted doing crossword puzzles with a cup of tea.

How are you keeping yourself busy? And most importantly, keep yourself and others safe!

It’s Pancake Day!

Tuesday, February 25th, 2020

Today at Beaniepedia HQ is a very special day that is close to my heart…

Of course, I mean Pancake Day!

Today, Scorch has decided to “help” me make some pancakes. Thanks Scorch!

In the UK, we make thin, crêpe-like pancakes that can either have a savoury or sweet filling, but usually sweet. Typical fillings include lemon juice and sugar, nutella, banana, berries or golden syrup. I’m getting hungry just typing this!

Personally, my favourite fillings are lemon juice and sugar or golden syrup! But today, I’m undecided on which filling to have.

Do you celebrate Pancake Day? If so what are your favourite fillings/toppings?

Today is Library Shelfie Day!

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

Today is the fourth Wednesday in January, which means it’s Library Shelfie Day!

It is a day created by the New York Public Library for book lovers to share their love of books for all the world to see! Here’s Scorch showing off my book collection. As you can see I’m a bit of a Terry Pratchett fan.

While there are various ways to show off your book shelf, from organising them alphabetically to arranging them into some kind of art form, I prefer to just keep it simple.

Speaking of books, there is a Beanie Baby that comes to mind today. Strangely enough, his name is….Books!

Books the bear was released in three different colours: Red, Purple and Blue!

Here they are…

They were released as Back to School bears back in 2005. They all had the same style number (40266) and has the same Birthday of 15th August 2004.

Do you have any of these three versions of Books in your collection?

Also to join in with Library Shelfie Day, you can join in by taking a picture of your bookshelf and sharing on Social Media with the hashtag #LibraryShelfieDay.

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!
