Top 5 Valentine’s Day Beanie Boos

February 10th, 2020 by Rachel

Yesterday I posted an article about my top five Valentine’s Day Beanie Babies. Well today, I’m going to talk about my top five Valentine’s Day Beanie Boos!

So I’ll start off with one of my favourite monkeys.

1. Casanova

Casanova is special to me as I received him myself for Valentine’s Day.

This cute little brown monkey was released in 2010 and holds a large, pink love heart in his paws. He is slightly older than the other Beanie Boos I’m going to talk about today and has a purple 2nd generation hang tag.

His poem reads:

My temperature’s high and my vision’s a blur
I have a bad case of jungle
Love for sure!

Casanova was also released in a medium size and as a key clip.

2. Romeo

Romeo looks like a bit like a Boston Terrier or a French Bulldog, I’m not quite sure which, but he sure is cute!

He is a gorgeous hot pink colour and holds a shiny red heart in his jaws, ready to give to his new owner!

His poem reads:

This special day, I give you my heart
Treat it well and we’ll never part!

Romeo was also released in a medium size.

3. Junglelove

Junglelove is a pale pink giraffe covered in hot pink patches. He is such a cutie with his little red heart, tiny red hooves and large pink eyes!

His poem reads:

I’m a romantic giraffe I surely think
Even my body is red and pink!

Junglelove was also released in a medium size and as a key clip.

4. Reagan

Reagan technically hasn’t been released yet, but I just had to put her on the list!

I just think her pink, curly hair is so adorable, as is her little pink, heart-shaped nose!

She is expected to be released very soon and currently her poem is unknown (I’ll update this as soon as I find out).

And finally…

5. Dainty

Dainty has the same pink, curly fur as Reagan, and looks so cute with her tiny wings and her sparkly beak, which holds a shiny hot pink heart.

Her poem reads:

No need to say anything, There is no special lingo.
I will forever be yours, your Valentine flamingo!

Dainty was also released in a medium size.

What are your favourite Valentine’s Day Beanie Boos? Who else do you think should be on this list?

 

Top 5 Valentine’s Day Beanie Babies

February 9th, 2020 by Rachel

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I have decided to compile a list of my top five personal favourite Valentine’s Day Beanie Babies!

1. Valentino

Valentino was one of the first Beanie Baby bears I got (along with Halo and Fuzz) so has a sentimental value to me.

His poem reads as follows:

His heart is red and full of love
He cares for you so give him a hug
Keep him close when feeling blue
Feel the love he has for you!

Although I love Valentino, there is so much false information out there about him, mainly regarding his rarity and value.

To clear things up a bit, Valentino is only worth any more than a few dollars when he has a 2nd or 3rd generation swing tag, the 2nd generation being worth several hundreds of dollars if it is in absolutely mint condition.

There was a rumour that if Valentino has a brown nose then he is worth more. The truth is that all Valentino bears had a brown nose. There was no other colour variation available.

Finally, errors in the tag add absolutely nothing to his value. Tag errors were produced in the millions and are very common among most Beanie Babies.

Having said that, I love Valentino and think he’s a lovely bear.

2. Lovely

Lovely is an adorable little white dog covered in a red heart pattern. She reminds me a bit of a dalmatian dog as the heart pattern looks a bit like red spots and I just love the bright red ribbon she has tied around her neck.

Her poem reads:

A wagging dog so cute and sweet
Is bringing you a special treat
Many warm hugs meant just for you
A more lovely pup you never knew!

So cute!

3. Garfield – Happy Valentine’s Day

I’m sure you have all heard of Garfield the cat, the popular comic series created by Jim Davis. Since he has appeared in his own TV series and even feature length movies.

The cynical, lasagne-loving feline has even been made into a few licensed Beanie Babies, one of which is the “Happy Valentine’s Day” version, pictured above.

His poem reads:

Love is splitting the
last plate of
pasta!

4. Romance

Romance is one of the newer “pot belly” design teddy bears, in fact she was the first to feature this new look.

She is a pale pink with highlights of hot pink mixed in and has a cute little heart-shaped nose.

Her poem reads:

Valentine’s Day is the perfect chance
To give some love and show romance
This little bear can hardly wait
She wants to help you celebrate!

And finally…

5. Smoothie

Smoothie was a cute white giraffe covered in bright red hearts. Her gorgeous fluffy red mane runs down her long neck and she has a tuft of bright red fur on the end of her tail.

Smoothie’s poem reads:

I will search high in the trees
For someone that I can squeeze
My Valentine will meet me there
And we will make the perfect pair!

What did you think of this list? What are your favourite Valentine’s Day Beanie Babies.

Spirit the German Shepherd Beanie Boo Spotted on Amazon!

February 5th, 2020 by Rachel

Last week I wrote an article about three dog Beanie Boos that are expected to be released soon. Well it appears that at least one of them is now available!

Spirit the German Shepherd dog is available on Amazon.com!

His Birthday is on 15th May and his poem reads:

I’m a strong German Shepherd, both smart and bold
With tremendous spirit, and a heart of gold.

There are two other dog Beanie Boos that are due to follow soon, Camilla the pink poodle and Prince the blue husky.

Have you spotted Spirit, Camilla or Prince yet?

Mini Boos Unboxing – Series 1

February 3rd, 2020 by Rachel

Another Poundland find this weekend!

Last week I reviewed Zappy as I found him and a few other Beanie Boos, including Orson and Nori in Poundland for only £2! As I previously mentioned, Poundland is a UK discount store that sells items for between £1-5.

This time, I came home with one of the Mini Boos!

Mini Boos are hand-painted figurine versions of Beanie Boos that come in a concealed box with a question mark on the front.

I had previously purchased one of the Mini Boos from Poundland and I received Kiki (pictured below), a cute grey tabby cat with a pink bow. When I came back to buy another one, they had all sold out! However, they now have a new batch in stock again! Yay!

On the back of the box are all the pictures of all the Mini Boos available in the series. This box happens to be from the first series. The only Mini Boo not pictured is what is known as the “Mystery Chaser”, a rare Mini Boo that is only available in smaller quantities.

Inside each box is a bagged Mini Boo figurine and a Mini Boos checklist. For some reason, I’ve ended up with two checklists. I’m pretty sure there is only meant to be one as that was what I got with Kiki originally.

Each checklist has the different Mini Boos available for each series with their picture, name and a circle that you can tick when you get each one. There is also a Mystery Chaser picture that you can tick if you’re lucky enough to get it.

Finally, it was time for me to open the box and the Mini Boo inside was…Safari! The Safari Mini Boo is based on the Beanie Boo, also called Safari, who was released in 2010.

Isn’t he adorable?

Safari will sit nicely on my desk alongside the Kiki Mini Boo I got previously. I’m sure more will join them both at some point.

Here they are pictured together.

There are currently four series of Mini Boos available, and I’m now hooked! And this is just the first series!

Do you have any Mini Boos in your collection?

Unicorns, Unicorns and More Unicorns!

January 31st, 2020 by Rachel

Unicorn lovers, rejoice! Coming to stores either next month or in March are two new Flippables and one new Beanie Boo!

This month, we’ve already been spoilt with Darling, the brand new Valentine’s Day unicorn Beanie Boo. So who else is joining her?

First, we have Fantasia.

Now don’t confuse her with the 2015 unicorn Beanie Boo, also called Fantasia, although I think the two could be related. This Flippables Fantasia is covered in reversible sequins that change from pink to gold.

The next Flippables on the list is Cosmo.

Cosmo has reversible sequins are arranged in a rainbow-coloured check pattern. In fact, everything about her is colourful, from her rainbow glittery eyes, to her multicoloured hooves.

Finally, there is Gumball.

Gumball is a pink unicorn Beanie Boo with patches of hot pink, turquoise and grey. Her colouring really does look like it could be on a gumball.

So there you have it! All three unicorns to look out for over the next couple of months. I know my niece will love these when she hears about them (she ADORES unicorns!).

Which one do you like best?

One for the Dog Lovers…

January 30th, 2020 by Rachel

Yesterday, I wrote an article about the upcoming Beanie Boos and Flippables for cat lovers. Now its the dog lovers’ turn!

There are soon to be three new dog Beanie Boos on the shelves! As stated before, these Beanie Boos are expected in stores either February or March.

First up is Prince.

Prince is a new husky Beanie Boo with a gorgeous blue and white colouring. I like how his ears are a slightly darker blue than the rest of his body as it give a bit of contrast from just being a solid blue.

Next, there’s a new poodle Beanie Boo expected. Her name is Camilla.

To be honest, I’m not sure about this one. I prefer the traditional poodle look that you see with Beanie Boos like Mandy and Princess. Thats just my personal preference though. She has a kind of “puffball” body with a long neck like Orson’s. Maybe I’ll change my mind when I see her up close.

Finally, my personal favourite of the new dog Beanie Boos, Spirit!

Spirit is a german shepherd dog, and I think Ty have done an amazing job with him. His face has so much detail to make him as close to a german shepherd as a Beanie Boo could possibly be! I love his dark muzzle and the caramel brown over his golden eyes.

So that’s it! All three new dog Beanie Boos due out either next month or the month after! Stay tuned for further updates!

Which one are you looking forward to the most?

One for the Cat Lovers…

January 29th, 2020 by Rachel

For all the cat lovers following us, keep your eyes peeled for these two new cat Beanie Boos and one Flippables! They are due to be released in the coming weeks, with some sources speculating February or March.

First up is Asher. Asher looks to be a breed of long-haired cat with a grey head and white body. She is part of the “unicorn animal” range that Ty have been producing for some time now. She features a sparkly pink unicorn horn on top of her head.

Next we have Reagan. Reagan is a pink cat with curly fur. She appears to be a Valentine’s Day Beanie Boo, and the fact she could be released at any moment it would make perfect sense. Reagan’s fur looks to be the same colour and texture as the flamingo Beanie Boo, Dainty.

And finally, the last cat due to appear on the shelves is the new Flippables, Confetti! Confetti, as her name suggests, is covered in multicoloured reversible sequins that resemble confetti. Her colours are gorgeous!

 

As mentioned above, look for these new Beanie Boos to start appearing either next month or in March. Watch out for further updates on these and other Ty products that are coming soon!

Which of these cats are you most looking forward to seeing?

Beanie Boo Review – Zappy the Platypus

January 27th, 2020 by Rachel

Yesterday, I went into town to do some shopping and came home with an unexpected bargain from Poundland! For those in the USA who follow my website, Poundland is a nationwide discount store in the UK that sells things from £1 up to about £5. They are literally in every town and city in the UK that you come across.

Anyway, I just happened to notice that they had a selection of Beanie Boos in store! The Beanie Boos in stock at the time were Icy, Asha, Orson, Aqua, Nori, Zappy and Cinnamon. They also had Aqua and Icy in the medium size and various Ty Gear. I decided to buy Zappy the Platypus as I didn’t have him in my collection yet.

Zappy was released in 2019 in both the small and medium sizes of Beanie Boo. He is a purple, pink, blue and white platypus with a fluffy body except for his lavender coloured belly, which is made from the smoother Ty Silk material. His eyes (shown below) are glittery purple and slightly smaller than that of most Beanie Boos. His flippers and bill are made from sparkly turquoise fabric, covered in glitter.

He has a 4th generation Beanie Boo swing tag with the red background and yellow “Beanie Boos” logo and “Ty” written in white. Earlier Beanie Boos had a purple swing tag with a yellow “Ty” logo and “Beanie Boos” written in a pale blue font.

Written inside right of his swing tag is his name, Birthday, which is on 15th September, and a poem. The poem reads as follows:

I’m a platypus who likes to swim
So I’ll never, never need a gym!

The Zappy I bought has the version of the two-tag C1 tush tag that was distributed in the UK (with the Portsmouth address stuck over the front of the USA Oakbrook, IL address).

My overall impression of Zappy is that I just adore the colour of his fur! I think the combination of purples, blues and pinks really compliment each other well (I may be a bit biased as I just LOVE purple!). I think he makes a brilliant addition to the Beanie Boos range (and to my personal collection).

For the information of those in the UK, the price on the shelf for Zappy was £3, which I thought was a pretty good deal. However, when I went to the checkout, he was actually priced at £2! Even better!

What do you think of Zappy?

 

Simba and Nala Beanie Babies

January 24th, 2020 by Rachel

I was six years old when The Lion King was released and it quickly became one of my favourite movies of all time. When I heard Ty were releasing Simba and Nala Beanie Babies for the release of the live action movie, needless to say I was thrilled!

Simba and Nala were released at the same time as part of the Disney Sparkle range of Beanie Babies. They are an incredibly good likeness to the characters in the movie. I love all the little details on them like their glittery eyes and the little tufts of fur on their tail. I think Ty have done a really good job with them!

So far, I haven’t seen the live action version of The Lion King. I’ve been skeptical about it being as good as the original, but I’m trying to keep an open mind. I’m sure I’ll watch it at some point.

Do you have Simba and/or Nala in your collection?

Looking for the perfect gift for a Beanie Boo collector this Valentine’s Day? Then you’re in luck!

Aphrodite is a brand new Valentine’s Day Beanie Boo! She is a cute, bright pink and white husky with an embroidered, sparkly pink love heart on her chest.
