Thanks to my friend Vicky for pointing this one out –
It looks like Ty secretly added a second version of the Olaf Beanie Baby to their website. This new version is holding a little heart (most likely for Valentine’s Day).
PS: As a minor note on Ben’s latest post about a Sven Beanie… yes, Sven is a reindeer in the movie and not a moose. Perhaps Ben needs to rewatch this scene in the movie!
It appears that TY will be shipping Sven the moose to stores this holiday season along with the previously announced “Olaf” the Snowman from Disney’s “Frozen!” I am beyond happy for this as we haven’t had a lifelike beanie moose in ages, plus if the film is any indicator, these plush should be very popular and limited in production! From te pictures I took in my local toy shop, it’s clearly visible that they are already taking pre-orders for these Beanies and Buddies, and don’t expect them to ship until mid-fall!
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?!
