I apologize for being so quiet lately – I’ve been work work working nonstop. I’m responding to emails now and will be able to do some updates later on.
Thanks to my co-author Ben for sharing news on some rumored new Boos… what are your thoughts? Do you think they are real?
These 2 Hello Kitty beanies have been confirmed that they will be shipped to Walgreens this holiday season in packs of holidays beanies, also there’s been recent pics and reportings of another beanie boo cat named Annabelle. Like recent cats Pellie and Fiona, Annabelle is a color block cat with pink and cream fabrics.
Thanks to Glubschi who recently posted about yet another lamb beanie boo named Irina! It’s very cute and certainly appears authentic. It has surfaced in Germany, and is so far officially unreleased by TY. What I find to be the most interesting part of this beanie is in it’s hangtag: it references 2015 as the “year of the ram” which according to the Chinese Zodiac is correct. Could this be an attempt to reboot the Zodiac line of beanies for the boo line?! TYme will tell :)
I saw this post on pop star Miley Cyrus’s Facebook page, it seems that the star has a fondness for huskies as both the Slush Boo and Buddy are clearly visible. Readers will remember not too long ago Brendan posted an article about Lady GaGa giving away Boos at her concert.
It appears that TY has decided to re ship a new version of the Brutus Beanie to retailers! Brutus debuted in 2009, was redesigned in 2010 and in 2012, and now has been redesigned with a new hangtag, birthday, and poem. It should match the Ty Classic version that has been shipping to stores as well. While Rottweilers are a popular breed for sure, it would be nice to reinvent the wheel instead of just tweaking existing beanies… Perhaps a Rottweiller Boo would have been more exciting?!
Thanks to our reader Skylar for sharing her photo!
It appears that Claire’s stores are now receiving two new exclusive Beanie Boos – Izabella the husky and Pellie the cat.
The last two Claire’s exclusives (as you may recall) were Bubbly and Zazzy from October.
So while you’re in the mall picking up your hundredth Justice exclusive Boo, be sure to stop by Claire’s as well!
What do you think of these two cute Boos?
The Justice website now has 4 new exclusive Beanie Boos available!
You may have seen these before – Darci the giraffe and Fiona the cat. Both are available in regular Beanie sizes as well as jumbo 16-inch sizes.
Keep an eye out for these in stores soon!
