Beanie Baby Review – Stripes the Zebra!

Friday, October 2nd, 2020

Hi everyone!

As promised earlier this week, I am now going to review another recent Beanie Baby I purchased…Stripes!

Stripes is an adorable white zebra with airbrushed black stripes. He has large, glittery blue button eyes that really stand out from his white fur! His eyes could almost be mistaken for those of a Beanie Boo, but Stripes is from the Beanie Babies range.

His fuzzy mane and the tip of his tail are both white with subtle hints of black mixed in. His muzzle, inner ears and hooves are all pale grey and he has black stitching for his mouth and nostrils.

Stripes has the given Birthday of 17th January and his poem reads as follows:

My stripes help me to hide from danger
I run and hide when I see a stranger!

As you can see from his tush tag, Stripes is made from the trademarked VelveTy material which is very soft to the touch. It also has a subtle sheen to it which catches the light.

My final thoughts on Stripes are that he is incredibly cute and he has the most gorgeous eyes! I definitely think it was the right decision to go with the blue, glittery eyes. I am so glad to have this little guy in my collection now as I had been meaning to get him for ages!

What do you think of Stripes? Do you have him in your collection?

Introducing the Christmas Beanie Boos for 2020!

Thursday, September 3rd, 2020

Last Tuesday, I talked about the Beanie Boos that are available for Halloween 2020.

Now for the Winter Beanie Boos!

First up is Snowfall!

Snowfall is a Winter-white unicorn covered in sparkles, complete with a red and green candy-cane horn! She is a beautiful new addition to the unicorns!

Next we have Cheer!

Cheer is similar to two other hat-wearing penguins called Penelope and Gale, except he wears a red and green tartan Winter hat.

Our next Winter guest is Howlidays!

Howlidays is an adorable brown dog wearing a sparkly red Santa hat! His hat is complete with a white furry trim and pom pom, finished off with glittery green holly leaves!

And last but not least, the final Christmas Boo for 2020 is… *drum roll*…

Chimney!

Chimney is my favourite of the new Winter Beanie Boos! He is a white mouse with candy striped for his inner ears! I love his tiny glittery red feet too!

Today is International Black Cat Appreciation Day!

Monday, August 17th, 2020

As the title says, today is International Black Cat Appreciation Day!

Funnily enough, I’ve literally just put Heiress, the gorgeous fluffy black cat Beanie Baby from 2004, into the database! Here she is pictured below:

Isn’t she pretty?!

Other favourite black cat Beanie Babies of mine include Fraidy, the Halloween cat (pictured below), Cabaret the fluffy tuxedo cat, Zip the black and white cat (who was all-black in an earlier release) and Frightful the Witch Cat.

For the Beanie Boos, Jinxy (pictured below) is one of my favourite black cats. Others include Potion, Witchie and Shadow. As you can see, most black cats in the Beanie Boos range are Halloween-themed.

Do you own a black cat? Or should I say, does a black cat own you?! Or perhaps you have a favourite black cat Beanie? Leave a comment below!

Beanie news roundup

Tuesday, August 11th, 2020

Hi everyone!

Apologies for the site being a bit quiet recently. Things have been pretty hectic at home and I haven’t had time up until now to update the site as much as I would have liked to.

Anyway, I’m back! If you have sent any messages recently, I will do my best to reply to you all. However, I have received a lot of messages to catch up on so it might take a while!

So what’s been going on in the world of Ty?

Well it turns out Faye, the pink fox Beanie Boo has a horn!

The stock images of Faye originally showed her without a horn, but in reality she does in fact have a glittery gold horn!

Talking about horns, it also appears that the Giselle Squish a Boo has a golden horn too! I did think it was a bit odd how the Beanie Boo version of Giselle had a horn but it didn’t look like the Squish a Boo version had one. But it turns out she does too!

giselle squish a booAlso, some great news! Tremor has landed back to earth! Tremor went up to space initially as part of the SpaceX launch to indicate to the astronauts when they had reached zero gravity (the story about Tremor’s expedition to space can be found here).

tremor returns home from spacex expeditionThere are also a few new Halloween and Winter Beanie Boos and Puffies that have been announced which I will go into more detail about soon, so stay tuned!

I hope everyone is well and I look forward to posting further updates!

Happy collecting!

Beanie Baby Birthday – Happy Birthday Frolic!

Sunday, June 28th, 2020

Today is 28th June, which can mean only one thing!

It’s Frolic’s Birthday!

Frolic is a gorgeous spaniel-type dog with a fluffy white body and black fur running along his back. He has button eyes and a black nose, with scruffy, black floppy ears.

One of the things I really love about Frolic is the amount of detail Ty have put into him. On his muzzle and around his paws, he has grey, airbrushed patches to give the appearance of the markings on a real spaniel.

Below is a picture of a real Springer Spaniel to compare. I think that Ty have done a great job with Frolic and making him look like the real deal!

Frolic’s Birthday is on 28th June 2001 and his poem reads as follows:

Please take me to the park today
Where I can run and jump and play
It’s so much fun to be with you
I hope you feel the same way too!

Frolic was also made into a larger Beanie Buddy version, which looks equally as amazing as his Beanie Baby counterpart. Here is the Beanie Buddy version pictured below.

Happy Birthday my little springer spaniel friend!

Do you have Frolic in your collection?

Beanie Baby Review – Mystery the Loch Ness Monster

Tuesday, June 9th, 2020

I’ve lost count how many weeks we’ve been in lockdown now. The only problem with being at home is that I keep coming across new additions to my collection!

One of my latest additions that has just arrived is a UK exclusive Beanie Baby called Mystery.

Mystery Beanie Baby

Mystery is a turquoise Loch Ness Monster that was exclusive to the UK. She has little black button eyes and a white belly. On her side is the Scottish flag, embroidered in blue with a white cross.

Mystery Beanie Baby tush tag

Mystery was only ever available with a UK 13th generation hang tag. These were slightly different than a 13th generation USA tag in that they only say “ORIGINAL BEANIES” instead of “ORIGINAL BEANIE BABIES”. However, both tags featured the holographic star to the left of the lettering.

Mystery Beanie Baby Swing Hang Tag

Inside Mystery’s hang tag, her Birthday is on 22nd June 2004 and her poem reads as follows:

My size and shape a secret so old
Generations of tales greatly told
Any ripples or shadows you see
Just think aloud that it could be me!

Mystery Beanie Baby Swing Hang Tag

I’ve been wanting this Beanie Baby for a little while now, so I’m glad to finally have her in my collection!

Here’s she is pictured from another angle. Isn’t she adorable?!

Mystery Beanie Baby

There are two other Loch Ness Monster Beanie Babies similar in appearance to Mystery. There are two versions of NESS-e (pictured below right), a retail version and an Inverness Centre exclusive version (there were also key clips of both versions of NESS-e) and Enigma (below left), another Inverness Centre exclusive.

Enigma and NESS-e Beanie BabyHave you spotted any of these cute little Loch Ness Monsters before? Do you have them in your collection?

The list of Teeny Tys is now complete!

Friday, June 5th, 2020

Yay! It’s finally Friday!

Just to let you all know, I’ve now finished putting up all the Teeny Tys on the website!

Now they are available to add to your collection and browse at your leisure. You can also filter them by animal type, year of release and colour, as well as sort them alphabetically.

I am currently missing a picture for the Hungarian Chaser (Chaser XXI). If anyone has a picture they would be willing to give me permission to upload to the database, or any other information on him, I would be really, really grateful!

If you find I’m missing any out from the list, please let me know and I’ll add it in for you.

Enjoy your weekend!

Upcoming Beanie Boo?

Friday, May 29th, 2020

Have you spotted this little fox?

This adorable fox is called Faye. Although I saw Faye a while back on the Ty Calendar, I couldn’t find out any details on her before, other than a fuzzy, small image.

Ty have now updated her image on the Calendar and now include her poem, which reads as follows:

Being a sly fox is my claim to fame
Make a silly face, and I’ll do the same!

Faye will probably make an appearance later this year (obviously, the current situation could delay things, so I’m not sure exactly when that could be).

I am pretty sure, based on her look, that she will be released to the Beanie Boo collection, however, this is still unclear at the moment.

Faye is not to be confused with another fox released in the Beanie Babies range this year, called Fay (without the “e”).

Keep a look out for Faye later this year!

New features on Beaniepedia!

Tuesday, May 26th, 2020

Hi everyone! Just a quick announcement to let you know about the brand new features on Beaniepedia!

A few people have expressed (including myself) that they would love to be able to sort Beanies in the database alphabetically when searching. Well…now you can!

On each category of Beanie, there is a drop-down box on the top right of the page that is defaulted to “Latest added”. If you click on this, you can sort alphabetically by ascending order (ASC) or descending order (DESC). You can also sort your collection alphabetically in the “My Beanies” section of the website.

On the “My Beanies” section, you can now filter through your own Beanies in your collection by year, colour and animal type!

You can also now share your collection with your friends if you choose to.

Also, I’m happy to announce that after quite a few requests, I have been adding more Teeny Tys to the website. I have been meaning to add them in for a while now! I have more to go just yet, but the rest will be going up on the website shortly.

Thanks for visiting our website and I hope you continue to enjoy using it! Stay safe everyone!

Finally, the first Katy pre-orders are out!

Saturday, May 23rd, 2020

After what seems like forever, it appears the first Katy Beanie Boos have been shipped out!

Katy was first expected to be available in March, but from what I gather, there was a delay on the shipment of the Katy pre-orders due to the current coronavirus situation. However, it appears people are now starting to receive them, which is fantastic news!

Katy was first announced at the beginning of the year to raise funds for WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.) in order to help the rescue efforts for the wildlife caught up in the devastating wildfires in Australia.

If you pre-ordered Katy, have you received her yet?
