Hi there Beanie lovers. I hope your collections are expanding at a rate of knots like mine is! I thought that I had better get on and write something, as there have been two releases of Beanie Babies since I last wrote in March. Apologies for the delay. I have been very busy redesigning and re-planting my front garden for the last couple of months. It has been very hard work, and quite time consuming, but we are very pleased with the end result!

Anyway, back to the Beanies! The end of March saw the introduction of six new ones:-

BUZZIE the bee
DART the frog
JESTER the clown fish
SMART the owl
HERO the bear
And DEAREST the bear (U.S.A exclusive)

This last bear was brought out for Mother’s Day in America. As with all the so-called country exclusives,it is available over here provided you are prepared to pay extra. I managed to get one for my collection at a cost of £19.

“Issy” bears finally reached our shores last month, and with 50 different hotel locations to collect, one could form a collection of these bears alone! I have one- mine has a Lisbon label. Hmmh, only 49 others to go!

The end of April saw the release of  another 8 Beanie Babies;-

CHEERY the sunshine bear
KOOKY the cat
MIDNIGHT the panther
NECTAR the hummingbird
PATRIOT the bear (U.S.A exclusive)
POSEIDON the whale shark
REGAL the King Charles spaniel
And UNITY the bear (European exclusive)

There is also a new bear called CLASSY, whose design, (colour, ribbon, etc.), were voted for by the public via the Ty web site. As yet I have not seen it in any shops over here, and so it is one to watch out for.

There is also an ADDISON bear, which was given out at a recent baseball match in America. He is blue, with a white baseball with red stitching on his chest. Will we ever see him over here, I wonder? Apart from at a much inflated price, that is.

Rumour has it that the beginning of June will herald the arrival of the next batch of Beanie Babies, and so watch this space!

All for now. Happy collecting.

Love from Wendy.
