Have a very Happy Easter!

Thursday, April 1st, 2021

Hi guys!

I’d just like to wish you all a lovely Easter!

Recently, I managed to get hold of Fuzzy and Feathers, the two Easter Beanie Boos for 2021! I must say I’ve changed my mind a little!

On a previous post, I said that Fuzzy was very similar to Slippers, last year’s Easter bunny and I wasn’t sure about her. She is very similar, BUT I really really like her! I love her colour and I think she’s just adorable!

Feathers is also the perfect match for Lemon Drop, last year’s Easter chick and is sooo fluffy and cute!

Both Fuzzy and Feather’s also make a great match, don’t you think?

The picture doesn’t do them justice as they look far better in real life.

I also picked up a bargain last weekend as Poundland (in the UK) had all of the smaller size Squish a Boos in stock for £5 each! So I picked up Bloomy and Popper!

These two are the new Easter Squish a Boos for this year, so I had to grab them while they were so cheep (oh dear…bad joke alert).

Here they are pictured next to Dotty, my larger sized Squish a Boo.

Aren’t they cute?! They are sooo squishy, and make great Easter decorations!

Hope you all have a very Happy Easter and stay safe!

New additions to the Ty Puffies range, coming soon!

Friday, February 26th, 2021

Hi everyone!

Hope you are all well today? It’s a bright, sunny day here are Beaniepedia HQ and has been feeling a lot more like Spring recently, which makes a nice change from the miserable cold, Winter days that we’ve been having up until recently. Below is a picture of Roam enjoying the flowers yesterday during a walk in the park.

As I mentioned in my last post, I want to go through a few other new faces that are going to be appearing later in the Spring.

Six new Ty Puffies are going to be joining the range and they look sooo cute!

As you may already know, Puffies are a bit like a new, updated version of the retired Beanie Ballz range, except they are a bit fluffier and so far, are only available in one size. They are weighted at the bottom, so when you throw them in the air they always land on their feet.

Prince will soon have a new friend, with the addition of a brand new pink husky called Princess!

It looks like these two will be kind of an unofficial pair, since both are huskies and they both have royal titles (Prince, Princess).

Joining her with the “pink and white” theme will be Tabor the white tiger!

Tabor was originally released as a Beanie Baby and a Ty Classic. Later a Teeny Ty version appeared, and now she will be joining the Puffies range!

Next up is a little dog called Mandarin!

Mandarin, as his name suggests, is an orange-coloured dog with a brown patch over his right eye. I wouldn’t like to suggest what type of dog he is (I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments!), but he is really cute!

Dotty the leopard will also be joining the Puffies range!

Dotty was a rainbow coloured leopard Beanie Boo originally, but her popular design has featured across many product lines. I must admit, she is fabulous!

There is also going to be a new blue, pink and purple Puffie called Cleo!

Now, my first thoughts were that Cleo is supposed to be a cat, but after double-checking the Ty Calendar, she appears to actually be a husky, which I did not expect as she really doesn’t look like a husky at all! To me, she looks a little like a French Bulldog/Chihuahua? What do you guys think?

And finally my absolute favourite of the new Puffies….

Gizmo!

I just love the vibrant colours on this little kitty and her mismatched eyes are co cute! They kind of remind me of Heather’s odd-eyes. On top of that, I love the name Gizmo. Firstly, because Gremlins was one of my favourite movies as a kid, and also I used to have a pet rat called Gizmo (named after the main character in the movie – R.I.P. little guy!).

What do you think of the new Ty Puffies? Which is your favourite? Leave a comment below!

McDonald’s Teenie Beanie Boos coming to the UK!

Saturday, November 28th, 2020

Hi everyone!

Previously, I posted an article about the Teenie Beanie Boos that arrived to Germany from August to September.

Well, I’ve just found out on the McDonald’s website that the Teenie Beanie Boos are arriving to the UK!

They are going to be included in every McDonald’s Happy Meal from 2nd December, so keep a look out for them! I’m not sure whether they will be available for individual purpose yet, especially with the current situation, but at least they’re going to be finally available soon!

Interestingly, it looks like are going to be two new faces appearing. As seen below, there seems to be a winged pegasus and a griffin, which is kind of cool.

I am really looking forward to these guys finally coming to the UK, so from 2nd December, keep your eyes open for them!

Stay safe and have a great Saturday!

Unboxing Holly, the Claire’s exclusive Beanie Boo!

Tuesday, November 24th, 2020

Hi guys!

I’m really excited because today my Holly Beanie Boo arrived!

Holly is one of the three, brand new Claire’s exclusive Beanie Boos, the other two being Rory the kangaroo and Kora the koala.

So far, only Holly is available in the UK, but all three are available on the USA Claire’s website, where you can find Holly, Kora and Rory.

My first thoughts on Holly are that she looks nothing like the stock image on the Claire’s website and more like the original promotional image where she appeared to be more of an ice-blue colour.

Take a look at my unboxing video below!

Holly is now available!

Friday, November 20th, 2020

Hi everyone!

I have some exciting news for you all! One of our members got in contact to let me know that the brand new dragon Beanie Boo, Holly, is now available on the Claire’s website!

The bad news is…I just had to order one! So, I’m really excited that she’s on the way to me soon, but I promised myself no more Beanie Boos this month (oops!). However, I’ll do an unboxing shortly (along with a few others I still have to do…)

She looks slightly more purple-y in this picture than I originally thought she would be. From the original image that Claire’s released she had more of an icy-blue hue to her, so I guess I’ll find out when she arrives and let you know.

I have updated her page now that I have more information on her, so go and check her out!

Just to warn you if you are thinking of getting Holly, the Claire’s website were suggesting that they had low stock levels.

Do you have Holly in your collection yet? What are your thoughts on her? Leave a comment below!

Peek-a-Boos list now complete!

Wednesday, November 18th, 2020

Hi everyone!

As you know, I’ve been getting through Beanie requests to add to the website. I’ve managed to add in quite a few of those, although there are still loads of Beanies to get through so don’t worry I will get to those eventually too.

One of those requests was to complete the Peek-a-Boos section of the site, which I’m happy to say is now complete!

Peek-a-Boos are a range of smart phone and tablet holders that look very similar to Beanie Boos. The underside of each Peek-a-Boo was made from a handy screen-cleaning fabric, so you could wipe the fingerprints off your screen. Ty haven’t officially stated the retirement of the range, but there hasn’t been a new Peek-a-Boo since 2017.

Do you have any Peek-a-Boos?

Friday is here!

Friday, November 13th, 2020

It’s Friday, and quite a sunny one at Beaniepedia HQ!

This morning I took this photo of my new medium-sized Charmed Flippable, who I absolutely ADORE! I’ve never really collected the medium Beanie Boos/Flippables before (mainly because of space to keep them all), but there is something about the medium size Flippables especially because the sequins seem to flip more easily!

It’s also Friday 13th today, which is a little concerning if you’re superstitious in the year 2020 where nothing seems to be going right.

I’ve managed to get in a few more Beanie requests today (for some reason I can’t reply to one of the members who contacted me, but just to let you know I got your email and I have added some of the Beanies that weren’t on the website. I still have some to add but I will get them in shortly).

Right now, I’m going to have a tea break (excuse the bowl. It’s my daughter’s, honest!). Have a great weekend!

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!

Claire’s exclusive Beanie Boos update

Monday, November 2nd, 2020

Hi everyone!

I previously mentioned about three new Claire’s exclusive Beanie Boos that had been announced in France at the end of September. They included a chevron-patterned Koala, a bright pink Kangaroo and a shiny blue-silver dragon.

If you hadn’t already heard, their names have been confirmed as Holly the dragon, Kora the koala and Rory the kangaroo. I have included their pages in the database, but I apologise for the poor quality of the images as these were the only ones I could find!

So far, I’m not sure when they will be released as this is the only information I can find on them, so if you have spotted these three in-store, please get in touch!

Anyway, hope you all have a great Monday and stay safe!

Beanie Baby Birthday – Zeus!

Friday, October 23rd, 2020

Hi everyone! I hope you are all safe and well!

Well it’s a little bit of a grey, damp day here at Beaniepedia HQ today so I thought I’d look up which Beanie had a Birthday today and I came across….*drum roll*….

Zeus the Moose!

I just thought this little guy looked so adorable! He reminds me in some ways of an updated Chocolate, one of the Original 9 Beanie Babies.

His Birthday is 23rd October 2002 and his poem reads as follows:

With mighty antlers on my head
It’s difficult to get in bed
But I sleep better, yes I do
When I am cuddled next to you!

I also just love the name Zeus, giving the impression that he’s this big, strong, almighty being, but really he’s this cuddly little thing just asking for a hug!

Have you got Zeus in your collection?
