Upcoming Beanie Boo?

May 29th, 2020 by Rachel

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!

Happy Birthday Lilac!

May 29th, 2020 by Rachel

Well it’s that time of the week again…it’s Friday! It’s also the Birthday of a cute, little kitty called Lilac!

Lilac is part of the Teeny Tys range. I only just added her to the website yesterday before realising it was actually her Birthday today!

She features flippable sequins that change from a mixture of pink shades to a silvery, sparkly colour when you run your hand over them. Her sparkly green eyes really pop out from the pinky shades of her sequins.

I think we can all agree this little feline is just adorable!

Do you have Lilac in your collection?

New features on Beaniepedia!

May 26th, 2020 by Rachel

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!

May 23rd, 2020 by Rachel

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?

Hope Beanie Boo

May 20th, 2020 by Rachel

Later this year, we are expecting a new Beanie Boo bear to be released!

Meet Hope.

At the moment, the Hope bear (not to be confused with the 1999 Beanie Baby, also named Hope) is now only available for pre-order from the Ty Store, and it states on their website that they will ship in late Summer.

 

Hope was announced following the news of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic and is being released to raise funds for the United Way Worldwide Fund to fight against the coronavirus.

United Way Worldwide is a non-profit organisation where charities can pool their funds to help each other.

Hope’s poem reads as follows:

When you go to sleep tonight,
Pray everything will be all right.
And if you keep Hope in your heart,
We’ll stay together and never part!

Are you pre-ordering Hope for your collection?

New Beanie Baby – Barker

March 24th, 2020 by Rachel

With everything that’s going on at the moment, it’s nice to hear the news that there is a brand new Beanie Baby available!

His name is Barker and here is the little guy pictured below. Isn’t he adorable?!

Barker is a brand new dog in the Beanie Babies line. He is similar in appearance to the Beanie Boos (in fact, I thought he was one at first!) with his large, glittery gold eyes.

Barker appears to be a spaniel-type dog, possible a cocker spaniel, and has lovely floppy ears that are slightly furrier than the rest of him.

Barker’s Birthday is on 24th January and his poem reads:

It’s a known fact that dogs make good best friends.
There is no doubt we’re pals to the end!

Do you have Barker in your collection yet?

Keep safe everyone!

March 23rd, 2020 by Rachel

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!

For more information on the coronavirus pandemic, visit the CDC website for the current advice and guidelines.

Happy Birthday Swirly!

March 10th, 2020 by Rachel

Today is 10th March, which just happens to be Swirly’s Birthday!

This adorable little snail was released back in 1999 and has recently received a bit of attention on TikTok causing it’s value to rise a little.

Swirly’s poem is as follows:

Carefully traveling, leaving a trail
I’m not very fast, for I am a snail
Although I go my own plodding pace
Slow and steady, wins the race!

Isn’t she just so cute! Happy Birthday little snail!

Have you recently come across Swirly on TikTok or do you have her in your collection?

Happy World Book Day!

March 5th, 2020 by Rachel

It’s that time of year again….World Book Day!

Today I’m going to take a trip down memory lane and talk about Beanie Babies that remind me of certain books from my childhood.

 

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

This was one of my very first books ever, and I LOVED it!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is about a tiny caterpillar who eats and eats and grows and grows until he becomes a beautiful butterfly!

Even though he doesn’t really look like the caterpillar from the book, for some reason Inch the Inchworm has always reminded me of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

 

Inch was first released with felt antennae, then later with yarn antennae. The felt antennae version is a little rarer.

 

The Tiger Who Came to Tea

The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr is another book from my childhood. It is about a tiger who turns up to a little girl’s house and drinks all the tea, eats all the food before drinking everything in the house.

India reminds me a little bit of the tiger in the book. She was a cute little tiger released in June 2000. However, I’m sure your food and tea are safe with her around…

 

Little Red Riding Hood

Surely, everybody’s heard of Little Red Riding Hood?!

It was one of those classic tales that made children terrified of wolves. The original story is a European folk tale, although one of the most popular adaptations, and the one I remember, is by the Brothers Grimm.

Luckily Howl won’t dress up pretending to be your Grandma, but he does remind me a little of the Big Bad Wolf from the story. Don’t worry, he won’t eat you though.

 

Treasure Island

Another classic tale.

Treasure Island was a tale of pirates and buried treasure by Robert Louis Stevenson, and where the character, “Long John” Silver comes from.

The pirate bear, Roger (think Jolly Roger) would be a perfect character in this novel, with his eyepatch and skull and crossbones bandana.

Roger was a Vedes exclusive Beanie Baby, only found in Germany.

 

The Tale of Peter Rabbit

I LOVED Peter Rabbit as a child!

The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter is about Peter Rabbit, a mischievous rabbit who goes into Mr McGregor’s garden against his Mother’s wishes to eat his vegetables, only to end up being chased out by Mr McGregor and being sent to bed without any food when he gets home.

Ty actually did release a Peter Rabbit Beanie Baby. He was available as a retail version and a UK exclusive version that was only available at The World of Beatrix Potter attraction and in Harrods.

Are you celebrating World Book Day? What are your favourite books?

Upcoming Beanie Baby – Frederick

March 2nd, 2020 by Rachel

On Friday, I posted an article about the latest Beanie Baby bear I had spotted, called Kodi. He is a black bear expected to be released in Spring this year. Well, I have just found out about another Beanie Baby to join Kodi this Spring.

Frederick the fox is another new face due to make an appearance around a similar time to Kodi.

So far, I’ve been unable to find out any details about his poem or Birthday.

I’m sure this little guy will be just as adorable in reality. I can’t wait for all these new Beanie Babies and Boos to appear!

What do you think of Frederick?
