http://www.theshowroomsalado.com/servlet/StoreFront

The word is starting to spread and some are upset. This should not come as a surprise, sometime ago I shared a thread from my message broad from Scott Wehrs at Ty leaving hints about Beanies 2.0. I have also shared information from Sly regarding this trademark and changes coming to the Ty’s website.

Ty has always said to expect the unexpected, and in this case it holds true! I would not panic, instead I would welcome the new change and know that it should be amazing, after all, its coming from Ty.

I will keep you posted as more details unfold.

Ms. Janie

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

End of Beanie Babies?
My retailer told me today that as of the first of the year Ty will discontinue the Beanie Babie line and will start a new line like the Webkinz, complete with an interactive website. Has anyone else heard of this?
JSN

Re:End of Beanie Babies?
I would not be surprised. It seems like the people at Ty have lost interest with their own product. Most of the Halloween beanies were the same as previous years. Except for the Gingerbread men the new releases are pretty dull.Now they have ended BBOM which started out fun with well made beanies and ended up with mediocre ones which I believe they just sold through BBOM because they wanted to get rid of them. Even the Halloween contest was half-hearted.I don't mean to be a downer but all signs point to the end to me.
katty123

Re:End of Beanie Babies?
He has said that before, but now it would not surprise me. He is stopping BBOM in December. Beanies are just not selling like they used to. Webkinz are every where, and very popular. I think they are too expensive.

I love Moonstruck and she is sitting next to a long-legged witch (Esmerelda) on the back of my couch. For the tissue paper collectors, there were several sheets of orange tissue in the box. My heartfelt thanks to TY for the Halloween goodies, they will be treasured. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!

Beanie UK has reported the following "Exclusive - Hot News about Arrangements for Harrods"!

Check this out !

I have been authorised to pass on the following information, concerning the arrangements for the forthcoming Harrods releases, and must say I am well impressed by what will be in place this year. (The words in italic below are my additions)

Harrods Exclusive Launch - 3rd November - Key Points :-

Queuing from Door 10

There will be guide ropes in place as well as signage, and Security will be on hand throughout the morning.

Doors open at 8.30am

Doors will open at 8.30am, and customers will be escorted to the Georgian Restaurant on the 4th floor in small groups to continue queuing.

Only Door 10 will be open at this time.

250 tickets will be handed out to the first people in the queue in the Georgian Restaurant.
- This is solely in case of evacuation once inside the building. - We have found customers are unwilling to evacuate as they lose their place in the in the queue (in other words, if there was an evacuation, the first 250 would still have their tickets for a later queue).
- These tickets do not guarantee you any Beanie Babies.

Beanie Babies will be on sale from 9am

- All other Harrods doors will be opened at 9am, at which time the Ty queue will already be in the building. - Queue jumping will not be tolerated. Queue jumpers will be asked to rejoin thequeue at the end.
- Customers with a Ty Invitation will be given their free gift at the front of the queue just before making a purchase.

Making a purchase

- More cash registers will be available than ever before to reduce queuing time.
- Allocated quantities of Beanie Babies have been increased to cut down the number of times people have to return to the queue. (Please note - there will be no limit to the number of Russian or Timeless Luxury Beanie Babies a customer can buy - it is first come, first served. (Note from me - No information is available yet about the other 2 Harrods Beanies which were advertised in the recent Press release - I will post this as soon as I have it. I can say, though, that the invitations for this event will be posted out from this week)

- Tickets will be snipped when customers make a purchase.

One purchases have been made, customers will be directed out on a one-way system, and anyone wishing to join the queue again will be directed through the Toy Kingdom, and back to the Georgian Restaurant.

There will also be a small selection of other Beanies available for sale (non-exclusive), but other Ty products will be available in the Soft Toy room of the Toy Kingdom.

.......................................................


I think this is a real step forward in organisation, and should make for an enjoyable morning for everyone...it's up to everyone there to help make it work. isn't it?

I'm BACK!!!

I am back from the Ambit Ambition 2007 Convention! Yes, there are Beanie Babies in this story...

To start, I wanted to and needed a way to keep this site running. It has been a work of love and although I have from time to time, posted donation links, no donations were ever received.

There are pages on this site to advertise your business as well as pages that offer My Collection Software.

Major expenses forced Beanie Baby Purchasing on my back burner, keeeping this web site up and running has been a task and a great desire... Not only Beanies but several additional sites are with My Collection, there are also here a Memorial Site, Rich Dad Poor Dad and a Family Photo Album!

I found a way to earn residual and exponential income for Life through Ambit and New York Electic my home based business.

If you are interested this is already happening in New York and Texas and Illinois is about to start on December 1st, 2007! I will put a Link HERE to explain what is new in electricity and gas deregulation that is sweeping the country state by state, and how you can like me begin the steps toward becoming a multimillionaire!

To celebrate I bought two Beanies I did not have since I stopped purchasing in June 2006! Welcome Hershey's Kisses and Happy Birthday! They are a symbol and memory of the Ambition Convention in Texas and to me they are saying.. YES I CAN!! Yes YOU Can!!!

Daniel at Beanie Universe has noted the appearance of the new Ty Girlz on the Current List on the Ty Web Site!

Dear Valued Member:

We would like to inform you that the Beanie Baby of the Month Club is coming to an end effective December 31, 2007. We have truly valued the continued support of you, our loyal members, over the years.

The 2007 December Beanie Baby of the Month will be the last Beanie Baby to ship to current members. For those of you who may be in the middle of your enrollments, be assured you will not be charged after the final shipment in December. Because Beanie Baby of the Month charges only occur when an order ships to you, additional charges to your credit card will not occur.

Ty will continue working hard to bring you the most adorable, huggable, and simply the very best product in the world � that will not change. Again, we thank you for your loyalty and support.

Sincerely,

Your Friends at Ty

A Note From The Beanie News Mailbox:

Hi,
I am trying to locate a pink beanie bear that has a copyright date of 2004. He was given to my granddaughter as a shower gift and I would like to find another one because she takes this one everywhere and one of these days we are going to have to replace him. This is her best bud...could you please help me? I have searched everywhere for another look a like...the closest one that I have found would be Sunset or Sherbert.

I would appreciate any help that you could possibly give me.
Sincerely,

Faith's Nana

A number of years ago, scientists believed that they had found the original Ark buried under ice and snow on Mt. Aeawat!

Subject: Sleepy Ty today

I swear Ty was asleep today or at least his moderators!

First:

He introduced the Admiral Beanie Buddy...again, even though he is already current!

He misspelled the "Freeze" Pluffie calling it "Freeeze" on the introduction.

On the Current List, 2 of the Racing Gold Bears have the wrong thumbnail picture next to their name.

On the Birthday Calendar a few numbers were misplaced and I have found other numerous small errors when browsing the site today and updating my site.

Luckily it's a Friday and that guy can get a rest and fix his mistakes Monday!

Thanks for letting me rant!

Beanie Babies whose Birthdays fall on September 25th are:

Barley the horse [ CURRENT ]
Dinky the dodo bird [ RETIRED ]

Borders exclusives Phantom and Haunted Two Ghost Bears were introduced. I found these after midnight and were likely introduced yesterday although I am not sure. As soon as the correct date is known (24th or 25th) it will be posted.

Update: September 24, 2007 is the introduction date for Phantom and Haunted.

Bounds and Parka have been retired today.

Bayou the Ty Classic frog retired today (Sept 25, 2007) nm
PattiBuddy, FerociousPlatypus

BIG GRIPE....Ty Sales were 30 Percent Down Last Year....
But STILL Ty Inc keeps on releasing 20 Plus New Beanie Babies each and every month! This is WHY sales have dropped SO Dramatically! There are TOO MANY! I have seen this as clear as day. The retailers are not ordering, and the collectors are no longer collecting. Hardly anything Retires anymore because they are not selling! There are over 373 CURRENT Beanie Babies right now. It's really too bad that Ty Inc has taken the route of Mass Releases as this has pushed most people away. Once the collectors are gone, Beanie Babies are just another mass produced toy.... Too bad Ty Inc didn't stick with the 5 or 6, AT THE MOST, new Beanie Baby releases each month. Things would be a lot different now. JMHO
dinofan

Where Did You Get This Information About Beanie Sales? (Not That I Doubt It) n/m
attickeeper

This Information is in the New Forbes Top 400 Richest People Article....n/m
dinofan

Agree100%,Dinofan.and BTW did you notice that "janie" lady did not mention the fact that sales are down while Bean.... did mention it. IMO there is a state of denial that beanies are being mass produced and are not being retired as you say; as for the Ty Girlz they, as well as other Ty products, are shelf-sitting in my area; in fact, the other day last week while shopping in a local Hallmark, I overheard some elderly gentlemen (& a few young ones also)laughing out loud and standing in front of the Ty Girlz display and making jokes about them (LOL). I laughed all the way out of the store, too funny!!
Zinniabell

Hi Zinniabell, yes, I did notice that too....
This is the domino affect. Denial plays a Huge Roll. I was in serious denial for the past few years thinking things would turn around for the better, but they only got worse. Along came mass releases and production, Beanie Baby PURSES, now LICENSED Beanie Baby creatures, Beanie Baby KEY CLIPS, the list goes on and on. Collectors don't want this kind of stuff! Collectors want Beanie Babies the way they were in the beginning. Cute, Realistic Animal Beanie Babies. Not Dora the Explorer or 30 versions of Spongebob Squarepants! The Ty Girlz I've Never cared for either, but since they aren't Beanie Babies I've never given them a second thought anyway. If they would have come out as being called Beanie Babies, I would have quit right then and there. It's all but over now, the damage has been done.
dinofan

Re:BIG GRIPE....Ty Sales were 30 Percent Down Last Year....
Not Surprised! I'm not buying Beanies anymore! did a 10 yr. run,and tyme to do something diff. like saving money for Hawaiian vacations!!! I am not going to re-enroll in the BBOTM this Fall! will finish with whatever my credit card has with points, and call it quits at that tyme! Only have so much room anyways..DIDR
dyemundindaruff

Re:Vey good info dino........
I'd like to add,back in the 90's when the Beans were jumpin' off the shelves,there were styles that were only In circulation for six months(like Libeart,Lefty,Righty).Chops was available for 16 months before retiring.Humphrey was in circulation for 1 year.all these were promptly retired,making them very desired! I think ty needs to go back to the formula that kept collectors on their toes.
maybe,he's satisfied with where he is and is just riding the status quo.
all excelleny points you raise.
great post.
rock on.
p.s. wheres riggins????

Heads Up!
There is a counterfeit wingless quackers and a counterfeit black Zip for sale on the bay. Different auctions, different seller. Buyer beware!

Help! Does anyone know how to get an authenticated beanie out of a case....

I recently purchased serveral older authenticated beanies. One of the beanies I would like to take out of the case, since I never plan on selling, but not no matter how hard I tug or pull I can't get the lid off. It is a prisim shaped box with beveled edges and a lid that comes off the top. On the side of the case it has the authenticators name and logo painted on in yellow. It was authenticated in April of 2002. It has no void stickers on it like the other authenticated beanies, and I am sure it ultra sonically wielded. Is there any way I might be able to get the lid off beyond cutting into or something to that extreme? Thanks for any help.
~Blue Stripe~
The Blue Stripe

Karen Brit gave me help with this
Put a screwdriver edge on the top of the lid where it's attached and gently tap with a hammer. It should start to move. Karen knows more about it than I do. I've only taken one beanie out of its case.
giraffedolly

Why would you want to ???? n/m
bearon

take a hammer to it and knock out a piece and then caregully pull the bear through
osiris2

Bearon, many reasons people want to feel/see for themselves, what they have. I personally buy beanies authenticated to be sure they're authentic, and if they aren't already authenticated, have them sent to be examined. Opening a case doesn't make it no longer authentic, you're just not able to sell it authenticated, but not everyone buys to sell, I buy to add to my collection. I can't imagine having something I haven't had in my own hands, seen the hang tag inside and out, seen the tush tag, etc. It would be like buying things in packages, and not opening them in case they're worth something in the future, which means you've bought for a future person, not yourself. In addition to those reasons, I take them out of cases to photograph them.
Love: Karen
KarenBrit

How it was sealed makes a difference as to how to open it, if you are trying to keep the case intact. I haven't heard of anyone sonically sealing the cases before October 2002. It may well be that it was glued shut, with super glue or the likes, as done often by those without the machine to sonically seal.

Some have reported glued cases coming open when put in a steamy bathroom for a while. You may want to try that.

For sonically sealed cases, it helps to make a slit in the seal before using a screwdriver and tapping off with a hammer, but it can be very dangerous, so take precautions.

Love: Karen

It is hard to believe that 6 years have gone by since 911 , September 11th, 2001. So many lives were lost on that day. In light of 911 a family member invited posts to the google group for Shabazz who did not die on 911 but who was senselessly lost in 2005. I never expected to have an experience that would let me feel how those who lost their loved ones felt that day. Life is precious and fragile and should not be taken lightly.

Happy Grandparents Day!!!



The Beanwatcher has noted that "the holiday began with Marian McQuade, who campaigned to establish an official holiday in honor of grandparents. In 1973, her efforts paid off, when the first Grandparent's Day in West Virginia was declared. Five years later, Congress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. To commemorate the event this year, Ty introduced the Ty Store exclusives, Nana 2007 and Papa 2007."

Notes From Doodle's Page :

If you look on the Ty Girlz site, there is a poll at the bottom of the page I'm not sure if it's new or not). When you answer it, it opens a new window and shows Candy, Sue, and Penny with new faces !

These seems more relaxed compared to the old ones (which seemed a little angry). I like the older way better.

Also, if you look really closely at them you can see it's the exact same picture of each Girl, which means the new ones might be computerized on ?

These pictures weren't put on the 'Meet the Girlz' page either.

The monkey known as George was apprehended by Beanie police and held under military supervision. Charged with being "overly mischievous", it was felt he was too dangerous to let roam free. However, despite the close guard, the captive escaped and is now once again on the run. It is not known whether he was aided in his escape and he (George) could be anywhere!

Notes From Beanie UK :

From: cliffN47 - 8/31/2007
As We dropped my daughter off at University for her sophomore year last Friday, I was reminded of the first beanie she had asked me to get her. Princess was by no means an easy find back in '97-'98. But, with due diligence I was able to get myself ripped off for one. She received it as a graduation present, and her smile was worth the price. Anyway over the years Princess along with Erin(another tough find back then) have never seemed to get shoved away into plastic tubs, and still remain out to this day. A few years later I found myself jotting down this little number about the two of them. It has been posted before(apologies for that), but hopefully new to some of you. Hope you'll enjoy it.

Here is a midi for those that don't know the tune:

http://home.att.net/~west30/15.mid


Her name was Princess, she was a beanie.
She had a white rose on her chest.
In royal purple she was dressed.
She would just sit there
Just sit and smile there.
And at Hero she had gazed,
You could tell he was amazed.
Along the crowded shelf
They had a sense of self.
They were beanies, that's for sure
They never asked for more.

From their plastic, plastic container
The safest place I could retain her.
In their plastic, plastic container
With pellets of PE or maybe PVC
In their containers........they fell in love.

Her name was Erin. She wore a clover
On her gown of emerald green.
It was a sight that must be seen.
And when at Hero, she gave a wink to
Princess bopped her on the nose
Erin's beans were on her clothes.
And then the gals got flipped
And beans just fell and dripped
They were tangled with each other,
But who's seams got ripped.

From their container, plastic container
The safest place I could retain her
From their plastic, plastic container
With pellets of PE or maybe PVC
From their container...... He lost his love.

Her name was Princess. She was a beanie
And that was just two years ago
When beans behaved or they would go.
Now she just sits there, not really Princess.
The royal purple that she wore,
Erin just ripped up and tore.
No beans to fill it out,
Doesn't know what she's about.
She lost her beans, and she lost her Hero
All she does is sit and shout.

From her container, plastic container
The safest place I could retain her
In her plastic, plastic container
With pellets of PE or maybe PVC
In her container...... won't fall in love

Won't fall in love

has anyone noticed a difference in the jacket on Sassy Star
I have both pink lips & blue lips versions, and on one her jacket is tacked together in the middle to look like it is buttoned, and the other is open. Has anyone else noticed this?
albeansouth

Re:has anyone noticed a difference in the jacket on Sassy Star
Yes, I've checked them out at the stores in the area. All the blue-lipped ones here have the buttoned jackets, and all the pink-lipped ones have the open jackets. I'd be interested to know if anyone has found the opposite.

I was debating whether or not to update the Bean Watcher site this week or wait until next month. Since I have much to share and so much will be happening in the days to come, I have decided to return sooner than later. My first update will appear tomorrow. So stay tuned for more...!

Bean Watcher comment: (1) Many thanks to all who wrote to me while I was on leave. I appreciate your kind words and well-wishes.

RE: Grin or Gripe: BB 2.0's ? (Blue Stripe's original topic)

Hi Zinnia, and others. I wanted to repost in case anyone would want to comment further so the topic wouldn't move off the page.

My thoughts on Beanies 2.0 or whatever it'll be called, is that if they're like the Girlz or Webkinz, they don't really interest me. Now if they were animals and well done and I liked them, I may consider buying them for my collection, but honestly the whole interactive part doesn't interest me. I'm very glad for those that like that part of it though. In fact, my 12 year old female cousin told me she loves her Ty Girl and the interactive part of it. That's awesome!

Which leads me to another opinion, which Since when should it be, "If I don't want Beanies anymore then the whole world shouldn't have them either?" I'll try and post that on it's own haha.

PattiBuddy, FerociousPlatypus

I think Ty needs to retire Original Beanie Babies and go with BB2.0
original beanies are old, outdated, and tired. tyme for somethin fresh and new.
JMHO
mood ring

Attics, Beanie boppers, tennie beanie boppers, beanie kids, punkies and now Beanie Babies. I think moody is right. Original Beanie Babies are outdated after more than 10 years.
Bring out the good stuff Ty.
Beanies R Best

I disagree completely. BB's are Ty's biggest profit. I would cry to see my Beanies being replaced with yet another plush/virtual line.

Beanie Babies whose Birthdays fall on August 23rd are:

Digger the crab [ RETIRED ]
Ghoulish the ghost [ RETIRED ]
Roger the pirate bear (Vedes Exclusive) [ RETIRED ]

The Ty Beanie Main Page had a bit of a clean up yesterday with only one spinner remaining for Nana 2007 and Pape 2007. Perhaps something new today? Perhaps not?

There has been quite a discussion going on over on the Ty Cyberboard over the past two days. With Beanies 2.0 coming soon, the retirement of the Beanie Baby line was proposed. Many people wrote in.

Why end something that makes money? Even though the stores have lost exclusivity and the demand for most beanie babies has decreased, there are still those who will always buy to keep up with having at least one of every beanie in their collection. A reduction in production would ensure sales and would recreate the demand Beanies have enjoyed more so in the past.

Billionaire Bears 2 through 9, Royal Blue Peanut, the original Trap and various color Teddies still have a great value. There are also still new introductions that command a higher price the Chef Robuchon Beanie. These are not found in stores.

Is was not that long ago that the Tystore first opened selling the first E Beanie. Now it id full of Tystore exclusives, non exclusives and licensed beanies.

Those categories that have ended like Attic Treasures, Beanie Boppers, Beanie Kids and more likely ended because of low sales. There is a satisfaction in having reached an end and having a "Collecting Closure" as descrived on the Ty Message Board. People don't just quit their jobs and stop making money when there are incentives to keep going amd in this case to make sales.

Darling the dog [ RETIRED ]

Notes From Beanie UK :

From: wilby4

Not to long ago I too made a purchase from Cindy's Beans for a set of the 22 Nascar bears. The site said they were pre orders, so I watched the site everyday until it said IN STOCK and emailed to see when they were going to be shipped. I never heard from them so I called and was told they had sold all of the kit #2 bears and were waiting for a back order shipment to arrive to fill the per orders. They said they would have them in a day or 2. So I waited another week and and emailed them again. They still replied kit #2 bears were not in yet, but the site showed them as in stock. So I emailed them back and ask if they would just remove the #2 kit bears from my order and refund the difference, since I already had several sets of the #2 kit bears in hand and really didn't need them anyway now. At that point they called me and said they couldn't remove them from my order. I said well as long as it has been now what are you going to do if TY retires them and they assured me they would get the missing bears. Well low and behold that very same day Ty retired the Greg Biffle bear, and again they called me and offered to replace the missing kit #2 bears with the entire of Show Exclusive Ice bears.

After all that run around I got from Cindy's Bears over the Nascar set, in the end it all worked out fine since I needed the Ice bears anyway. But, that was the first time I had ordered anything from Cindy's Beans, and it was also the last time I will order from them.

Huggles,
Gayle

Happy Newborn Baby Birthday Tashai !!!


Ms. Janie has posted the link for the Beanie Tracker book by Karen (Brit) Holmes.

John The Phoenix at Beanie UK reported that according to "the Beatrix Potter Attraction - they still do not know when the third set of Beatrix Potter beanies will be released... "

Because of this uncertainty, Karen Brit "decided to group the Licensed beanies with their respective 'name', so Beatrix Potter is under "B" and all the Beatrix Potter together."

Another Note From Beanie UK :

From: Bean_Watcher

Greetings Beanie UK members!

I'm taking a quick break from my leave of absence. I hope all is well with you.

I've been reading your posts and noticed that some messages refer to Hamleys. Last year, the UK-based store introduced two exclusive Beanie Baby bears -- Hamley and William. I'm sure many of you are wondering if they will introduce exclusive beanies this year. I wrote to the store on Sunday (August 19th) and received the following response:
=============================
From: ------------------
Date: Aug 19, 2007 9:10 AM
Subject: RE: Hamleys Exclusive Beanie Baby
To: ------------------ Dear ,

Thank you for your recent e-mail.

Unfortunately we are not planning to release a Hamleys TY beanie baby this year.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Kind regards,
Hamleys Customer Services
=============================

So there you have it.... as Americans and the British would say, that's "straight from the horse's mouth." So now, you can start planning for other beanie hunts now....!

Happy Collecting!
Bean Watcher


Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

Reese's fur

I went 2 my Hallmark 2 buy the guinee pig Reese. I was a bit sad 2 see the fur on this beanie. It was rough, not silkey, like Twitch.

Whadda ya think about Reese's fur? And some of the other newer beanies?

holidayteddy2002

Re: I was dissappointed too..same with Fizzer

I'm glad Reese was a good size, but I didn't like the material on him or Fizzer. Fizzer was way too small also. I think Fizzer could have been better with the material that's on Groowwl and Tootoot (not to mention being bigger).

The white part on Reese was OK though, it was similar but softer.

To:BeanieNews@hotmail.com
Subject: Hi Beanie News!!!!

Hi and how are you?

It's been a long time since I've talked with Beanie collectors!

I saw you posted on Daily Tymes and it gave me the idea to have sort of a Ty collectors reunion!

I've created a thread on my message board at:

http://collectorzchat.proboardsoards80.com/ where I hope to hear from some of the Old Tymers and new collectors as well.

What are you up to now...what have you been doing over the last few years..etc!

There's no requirement to register to sign up...but I hope people will register anyway.

I think it will be fun for everyone to "catch up" with each other!

I hope to hear from you and please pass this info and address along!

Did you get your My Collection Software yet?

Ty Girlz were shown in a news report on a local CBS channel this morning. Their television appearance was not very flattering however because they were shown during a report about recalled toys.

It is not known if they just happened to be in the shot being toys in a toy store or if they were being shown deliberately.

Ms. Janie's Message Board was the place to be yesterday evening! So many Beanie Baby Collector's showed up at the party. The threads are there to be read and enjoyed! Click Here!

A Report From Ms. Janie:

What an amazing night! Last nights chat went well, the board was hopping and collectors were chatting up a storm.

Here is the official count from my board moderator.

What a great night! Here are the facts.
We had 95 on the Board during the night posting 535 post with 9815 pages viewed. As John said, not this much activity since 2005. We picked up 15 new members.

Best to all, off to the horse trails now.

Scott Wehrs from Ty:

Here is a little secret before the party is over
Tonight has been great. I'll spend the next hour reading all your posts.
Before I call it a night I wanted to give you a hint of things to come.
Here you go . . . BB2.0 !
Let's do this again soon. Thank you so much for all your support over the years. I would like to think that the best is yet to come. And of course I can't leave the party without the final parting words - expect the unexpected. For Mr. Warner and all of us at Ty, good night and God Bless You.

I used to like Ms. Janie for Ty news.
But once I found Beanwatcher, I was hooked. Since Beanwatcher is now on vacation, can anyone suggest a Ty news site comparable to Beanwatcher? Thanks in advance, The Triple Lady

Re:Now that Beanwatcher is on vacation...?

I agree with you vtigna about Beanwatcher.
I am one of the few original collectors that have been reading his posts from when he started.
I have been reading his collums when he first started in 2000 on Beanie Wonderland.
My own personal thoughts is Beanwatcher is the best site out there period.
I know I will be getting some comments about this.
With that being said there are several other great sites out there that have have there own unique style as well
Here are some that I know of
I am sure I will miss some

A Very Important Note From The Beanwatcher:

"A Time to Reflect"
USA
August 14, 2007

"It's funny how fast time flies.... It is so hard to believe that I posted my first article (dated August 8, 2000) in my own column more than seven years ago. At the time, the Bean Watcher column was part of the UK-based beanie site, Beanie Wonderland and provided reports (primarily on beanie values) to supplement the news on the parent site. Click here to see an archived link leading to an early column. "

"As I've mentioned before, I am simply a collector with a full-time job who happens to update a beanie website on a part-time basis. After updating the site for more than a year since my return last year, it's time to take a break. Starting today, the Bean Watcher goes on a leave of absence. Click here for more information."


The Beanwatcher has been providing everyone with lots of great information and we all look forward to his return!

Not Beanies...

Polly Pocket, Barbie Batman over 9 MILLION Toys recalled, Dora, Diego and more Mattel Toys recalled. Recent recalls have included Pet Food, Tires, Toothpaste and more made in China. A recent Dateline report showed how counterfeit medicines were being made using things such as road paint to create the proper color and plaster for texture and making their way into legitimate pharmacies like Rite Aid and more all across the United States. One man paid $500. per bottle for a medicine that was fake for his wife. PLEASE BE CAREFUL! The toys may contain small magnets or lead based paint. Reports like this are usually found on the Whatever Page .

A Beanie Baby whose Birthday falls on August 13th is:

Spike the rhinoceros [ RETIRED ]

The Beanwatcher has found "an eBay (US) auction that has an in-hand picture of Odie the dog."

He also posted a further opinion by one reader responding to another reader's question, on whether or not that reader should continue to collect Beanies. It had become discouraging when the price and availability became too difficult to reach.

I must say that I keep this site up to date as well as the My Collection spreadsheets. Difficulty in keeping up the collection due to price, failed secondary dealer deliveries and mass productions every month combined to take their toll on my collecting. I have in fact been free of the collecting addiction for over one year now, 14 months total.

I stuffed the majority in a closet and still have quite a few around the house. I used to be a beanie addict. Beanieholics had a great name, it described the addiction. Here is a quote from the reader on The Beanwatcher:

"I have seen both collectors and retailers walk away.... There are TOO MANY NEW RELEASES, and TOO MANY CURRENT Beanies. Hardly anything retires anymore. With over 300 CURRENT Beanie Babies now, you would think that Ty Inc. would get the message...! But still it goes on, Mass Release after Mass Release, each and every month"

Go to The Beanwatcher to read the entire emailed note.

There has been talk of Ty Boyz on the Ty Cyberboard and Ty even addressed the subject in "Ask Ty" asking people what they thought about there being Ty Boyz. The Ty Girlz though different in face and hair, have some names first given to Beanie Boppers and Teenie beanie Boppers. There were quite a few Boys in the Bopper lines. Here is a look at the subject from one Cyberboard Member's point of view:

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

I don't think we'll see Ty Boyz

Many people have been talking about 'Ty Boyz', even though they aren't real. It seems that they have become a collection of their own without even coming into existance.

And if Ty were to make Boyz, who would really by them ? Boys don't normally buy dolls, and girls would be drawn towards Girlz. It seems that only collectors would get them to go with the Girlz.

Also, Ty would need to make a whole new site for the Boyz, or re-name the Ty Girlz site. The Ty Girlz site is, obviously, for the Girlz; and it would seem odd to add a Boyz to a Girlz site. And what would the new site be ? Ty People ? Tyz ? Ty would have to change signs and ads for the Girlz, saying go to the new site and not the old one.

So, if Ty does make Boyz, they'd have to do a whole lot more before actually making them.

Notes From Beanie UK :

I had signed up the very first month with TY on this program and was getting 8 a month [6 grandchildren, 1 for me and a spare]
I was so pleased with them the first year ....... but then they got to be so plain. I cut down to only 4 a month. . . then when hubby got sick I cut them all out.
I got into collecting beanies in '97, back when many retailers would make you buy 2 old ones to get a new one ...... and I did. I got stuck with so many dust collectors it was terrible.
I've kicked myself time and time again when I do the math on what I have spent on those beanies each month. I had to get each and every one that came out. I remember having to trade 5 to 10 current US beanies to get just 1 UK or Canada exclusive just to watch them come down in price lower than retail. Shot look at most the beanies today. Same goes there you can go to Meta and buy them there cheaper than retail.
Has anyone else did the math on what you've spend on these?

Every do the math on how much you have spend on postage for the trading or buying from others? Really sad han't it.

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

Sounded like beanie "heydays" again the other day when I heard a store clerk say to a customer, "Are you here again? you were just here yesterday!" Customer appeared embarrassed, asked the clerk if Nascar beanies had arrived, and on the way out customer told me she would report this remark to the store manager of the chain store in No. Va. Store managers apparently are not training their clerks to be courteous and respectful to customers who come to their stores to spend money there. We all know those clerks make the minimum wage and apparently may be somewhat envious that some customers spend more money on beanies than what the store clerks make in one day.

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

Does anyone else agree with me???

Hi
Does anyone else agree with me, that silent intros/retirements should stop?? I for one am tired of things just disappearing without so much as a "see ya". I collect many Ty items, not just Beanie Babies, so for a busy mum of 2, who works full time, I don't have time to go online every day to check if they have been sneaky overnight again.

Mystery of private 737 solved
"The "Ask Ty" section of the Beanie Babies fan site says his favorite ice cream flavor is Butter Pecan. He divides his time between homes in Santa Barbara ..."

Honeymoon like JFK, Jackie and Julia Roberts

The century-old ranch, now owned by Beanie Babies tycoon Ty Warner, is a little slice of heaven near Santa Barbara that's managed by Rosewood, Calif.

But he left out the best part: The mystery man – who swept into the Tacoma Narrows Airport on Wednesday in a privately owned Boeing 737 – also invented Beanie Babies.

The master of polyester and alliteration, Ty Warner, was in and out of Gig Harbor, Tacoma and University Place in a jiffy. His only stop was the new Chambers Bay Golf Course, and he didn’t hit a single ball during the hour or so he was there.

Don’t take that wrong – he was just here to window-shop.

You see, in 1999, just as the Beanie Baby market was cooling, Warner, now 62 and once reportedly worth up to $6 billion, diversified a bit, from understuffed plush cuddlies to posh hotels.

His first purchase was the Four Seasons in New York. He now owns hotels and golf courses across the country.

His latest project is remodelling the Montecito Country Club near Santa Barbara. He likes links-style courses, like those at Chambers Bay and Bandon, Ore., so he and his right-hand man, Greg Rice, planned a one-day, three-stop inspection tour.

That left little time for teeing off. Plus, “we forgot our clubs,” Rice joked Thursday.

Though their stay was short, Rice said he and the 52nd-richest American, according to Forbes magazine, enjoyed it.

“It’s beautiful,” said Rice, reached by phone at the Santa Barbara headquarters of Warner’s hotel empire. “I was actually, I’d have to say, amazed that a county would do such a great project. It’s not often that you see a county do such an aggressively, how would you call it, unique public work.

“I’m sure you have plenty of public courses,” he continued. “To have one that unique is quite a thing.”

Rice also sent his compliments on the new Tacoma Narrows bridge.

“We enjoyed the new bridge,” he said. “I understand it made our travel to and from the airport much quicker.”

Warner, for his part, was mum. He rarely grants interviews, reportedly bans employees from talking about him and, unlike with most companies, doesn’t have a team of public relations experts readily available.

The secrecy naturally fuels more curiosity. Forbes magazine says he’s worth $4.5 billion. Wikipedia says he’s single.

The “Ask Ty” section of the Beanie Babies fan site says his favorite ice cream flavor is Butter Pecan. He divides his time between homes in Santa Barbara and Illinois.

And, while he prides himself in creatively naming his animals (Patti the Platypus is just one), he seems to stick to the basics in naming his properties: If you’re in Chicago, you can visit Ty Warner Park. In Santa Barbara, you can see the Ty Warner Sea Center and follow it up with a stay at the Ty Warner Cottage.

Things get difficult when you go to New York, where you’ll have to decide between the $4,000-per-night Ty Warner Suite and the $30,000-per-night Ty Warner Penthouse.

But back to golf. People who have $30,000 a night for a bed to sleep in know that, when it comes to golf courses, “links style” (no trees, rolling greens, Scottish style) is popular now.

For remodeling his Montecito course into a links-style layout, Warner’s chosen none other than Jack Nicklaus.

With the veteran golfer-cum-course designer on his side, he hopes to create an elite “signature course” that’s one of the most prestigious on the West Coast, Rice said.

But don’t bank on getting a few rounds in at Montecito to compare it to Chambers Bay: Membership rates are said to be in the $250,000 range. Rice encourages taking the free stroll around the University Place course.

“Come on,” he said. “We flew all the way from Santa Barbara to see it.”

Since the Ty Girlz have their own chat space exclusive to the girlz, and since the Ty Cyberboard is the default chat space for beanies, shouldn't the girlz be chatting over in their own space? JMHO

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

My 15 y.o. son noticed differences on Coco Presley hang tags !
The tags are pretty much exactly the same except for the style numbers, so I was explaining to him (because this is what I read on Beanwatcher) then he noticed something I didn't !
He said "Hey Dad, the Elvis' are wearing different outfits!" And upon closer inspection, Sure enough! The Brown Coco Presley has a more 50's style Elvis, and the Orange one has a more 70's looking Elvis! I found this interesting, and was wondering if anyone else noticed?

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

Can someone tell me what the connection is between Elvis and Reeses?..nm
relandme

HERE IS YOUR ANSWER.......
I ALREADY NEW THIS BUT THIS EXPLAINS BETTER THAN I COULD
THIS IS FROM DOODLES
You may or may not be aware that one of Elvis Presley's favorite candies was the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. In fact, he loved a ripe banana and peanut butter sandwich, on white bread and pan toasted with butter. To mark the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death in August, The Hershey Co. has recently introduced the limited edition Reese's Elvis Cup, a peanut butter and banana creme version of its Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. This candy version hits store shelves this month.

Ty Girlz variations on the Ty Girlz site
I was wondering if when you enter the code of a variated Ty Girlz on the site, if it showed the variation. Like Sassy Star's blue/pink lips and (newly discovered) Rockin' Ruby's black/blonde hair. It could just show how the Girl is supposed to look; I don't know.

The Girlz side as you can see in the screenshot posted yesterday below, has a free code "1234"!





When you click on the Ty Girlz side, an animated display with hearts, make-up lips, earrings in circled close-ups then a store background with each of the Ty Girlz appearing plays with background music that sounds a lot like music from the beginning of the 1980's song "I Love L.A." playing and ending with a shout out of the words, "We're the Ty Girlz!"

Sloth It Up

new Ty Girlz ! My opinion...
I think that the 4 new Girlz are great ! I love Cute Candy's hair, very unique. It will be interesting to see it in person.
I like how Classy Carla's (virtual) picture has sparkles in her hair. Makes her look very...classy !
I like Pretty Patti's outfit, although it's like she's another pink one (copying Sue). But that's just my opinion; I still like her.
Jammin' Jenna has really pretty hair in the (virtual) picture. It's not just brown but has highlights and lowlights, making it better.
Can't wait to see them !

The Tystore also now known as Tytrade was a new addition to the Ty website. The Ty web site did not sell any products. This kept people searching for the Beanies in Hallmark stores worldwide. It was later that other specialty stores were allowed to also sell Ty Beanies. If all of the Beanies were available online, they would have not been scarce and the illusion would have been broken.

Sales online by Ty began with the introduction of the first E Beanie which meant it was an online beanie like the E in E Mail for electronic. Over time the Tystore years later officially opened. All Beanies are not available though. More and more have been made available now and the store has grown. It has a number of categories. There are Beanie Babies, Garfield, Clothing Accessories, Nickelodeon, Max & Ruby and Boblins. Beanies for dogs, Bow Wow Beanies and Garfield are a sub category of Garfield.

Nickelodeon sub categories include Spongebob, Blues Clues, Dora The Explorer, Charlotte's Web and The Backyardigans.

The Licensed Beanies introduced in the Tystore on July 6th were not said to be exclusive at that time. They have been listed in their licensed beanie categories for which there is a new Boblins category.

The Beanies introduced were:

Garfield:
Garfield & Pooky - Ty Classic, Garfield "Perfectly Lovable" - Beanie Baby and Garfield - Beanie Buddy

Nickelodeon:
SpongeBob Stuck On You - Beanie Baby

Boblins:
Gully, Pi, Ruddle and Yam Yam

Tabbles the cat [ CURRENT ]

Tystore exclusive Friends was introduced today. Friends is a double beanie. It is made up of two monkeys arm in arm, hot pink and pink, both with white faces and white paw pads.

The Beanwatcher reports that Snoopy is in hand and available in limited numbers to each customer at places like Knott's Berry Farm and Cedar Fair Parks where each location has an exclusive version.

The Beanwatcher has also reported that he "called Ty UK yesterday and pointed out the discrepancy. I was informed that Niklas is indeed, a German exclusive. References to it being a UK exclusive on Ty.com are a 'mistake.' "

A few web sites have reported difficulties in the past week with their Topica news letters. The problem may have been cleared up.

Beanie Babies whose Birthdays fall on July 2nd are:

Bubbles the fish [ RETIRED ]

Niklas was introduced today!

Beanie Universe Daniel has noted, that Niklas Birthday is on November 5, 2006. He also stated that Niklas is "listed as UK Exclusive on Ty.com but German Exclusive on Introduction. I would go with UK on this one!"

When the early information came out about the new beanies, before they were officially introduced, when I read ABC's and 123's beanies I pictured something quite different. Instead of these being two beanies, they sounded like sets.

I figured the ABC's was a set of 26 beanies in lower case letters since upper case letters were already out as Alphabet Beanies. Why no name them abc's I thought. Next 123's I imagined were beanies from zero through 9. ie 0, 1, 2 ,3... and so on. I was very obviously quite mistaken!

The Beanwatcher has researched and posted notes about the new NASCAR Beanie named No. 3 and has noted that "the bear's name and hang tag information emphasizes the vehicle, rather than the driver who immortalized it, the late (and legendary) Dale Earnhardt, Sr. (1951 - 2001)."

Wealthy Befriend Destitute - New Beanie Baby in the Works

Home to such celebrities as Oprah Winfrey, John Cleese, Steven Spielberg, Kevin Costner, Kirk Douglas and numerous others, Montecito is also home to the somewhat contentious private oceanfront club, the Coral Casino.

To the dismay of Ms. Rich and other local residents, Billionaire Ty Warner immediately vowed to employ as many of the Bolivians at the upscale club as he possibly could. He cited the fact that he thinks they are 'cute' as well. And he intends to make a beanie baby that looks like them named 'Bautista the Bolivian Beggar'.

Ms. Janie reported Ordering Information from the Rain Forest Cafe for Leopold sent to her by Tim in Alabama.

"Ms Janie, I just called 1 of the stores and they told me that they expect them in on Tuesday and will take phone orders. They will be $7 each. Spread the Word."

Popular 'Webkinz' Children's Web Site Goes Offline
"The popular children's Web site Webkinz.com went down for more than 36 hours to the dismay of thousands children across the country. ...'Webkinz World is temporarily unavailable,' said a message on the Webkinz Web site while it was down. 'We're working on making our website even better than before!' The Web site went down on Wednesday morning and did not go back up until around 2 p.m. on Thursday. Attempts to reach the Gant gift company for comment were unsuccessful. The toys have been a huge hit for retailers, with supplies selling out within hours of arriving at stores. Webkinz are one of the latest must-have toys for children, just as the Beanie Babies and Cabbage Patch dolls were the past."

Beanie Baby 5k steps off this weekend


When the gun sounds for the start of the Westmont Beanie Baby 5k Run/Walk at 8 a.m. Sunday, their race will become a reality.The inaugural event will take place at Ty Warner Park, at Blackhawk and Plaza drives in Westmont. The race is a combination of runners and Westmont businessmen thinking alike. Chris Johnson, Ty Inc. vice president of information systems, works out with a running club meeting at the Oak Brook Racquet & Fitness Club at 6 a.m. weekdays. That is where he met a business associate at the McCrone Group and his trainer at the fitness club. All three organizations decided to sponsor the race.

“We wanted to give back to the Police Department, and thank them for everything they do in Westmont,” said Johnson.

Johnson said many Westmont police officers work security for Ty on their off-days. Wanting to give back to the community, the organizers decided to donate race profits to the Police Department.

Specifically, the money will be used to purchase new bulletproof vests for the officers. According to police, the expense can get quite costly, considering each is about $500. “We’ve had (the ones now) for a number of years, and they are breaking down,” said Westmont police Sgt. Paul Chrzanowski.

Race organizers predict the first-year race will draw about 150 participants, ranging from athletes training for a marathon to those looking to walk with their family.

Registration is $30, and is free for children age 10 and younger as long as they are accompanied by a participating adult. For more information, call the Oak Brook Racquet & Fitness Club at (630) 654-2442.

Want a free Beanie Baby?
Participants registering for the 5k race will get a free toy. To register, go to www.beaniebaby5k.com .

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

Beware of Buying Clubs....
I purchased a membership to a beanie buying club from a popular hut site last november. I now find out that they are not in business anymore. They will not answer the phone or return emails. Today I filed a complaint with the Georgia Better Business Bureau. Tomorrow I will contact the police in Snellville Georgia and my attorney. BEWARE OF BEANIE CLUBS!!

Re:Re:Thanks for the Info Fuzzie........

The Beanwatcher has kept watch and reported that the now closed second Chef Robuchon Beanie EBay Auction has ended with a final bid of $3,013.56 won by a Japanese EBay site bidder named kumarinyumirin who was one of five last day bidders who placed a total of six bids!

The first sold EBay Chef Robuchon Beanie ended without a sale at $2,450.00 below the the reserve price and was relisted without a reserve. The Chef Robuchon beanie then sold for a total of $3,550.00!

The first Chef Robuchon EBay Auction sold for $536.44 more than the second. When bidding in an auction, early bidding causes the price to go higher. When bidders wait until the auction is about to end before bidding, a limited amount of time, the number of bidders and their bid amounts and can put a limit on how high the price can go before the auction comes to an end. Large bid amounts can however cause a price to fly high quickly though.

Sometimes you are the only one it seems to notice the changes because they happen so quickly. Things that should not be posted according to the rules often are posted until you try it. Sometimes opinions are deleted or posts are edited or rearranged. You can see some examples here.

The Ty Cyberboard is not only moderated but is often odd. A post can go up then dissappear. I would not be surprised if some of the posts are even made by insiders just to generate interest in a failing product...

According to an explanation on The Beanwatcher, "I can tell you KnOWLedge and Snowdrop certainly have different tush tags... (each with their own names) and Snowdrop's style number is 44095. KnOWLedge's tush tag is dated 2007 while Snowdrop's is dated 2006, leading me to believe with as similar as they may be, they were indeed different production runs."

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

The beginning and The end
Hi,
Last night I was wondering why TY made The beginning and The end.
Is there a story behind them?
Thanks Katie
katie loves ty

The End was first and yes, there's a story...lol... And depending.......... on who you ask, there's a slight variation. All current beanies as of Dec 31, 1999 retired and The End was one of them and Ty had people vote as to whether beanies should continue to be made or not. Of course, the release of the result of the vote said the winning vote was "yes" but myself, along with many others, don't believe there was ever any real intent to end beanies. Beginning was one of the ones introduced in the next bunch and they were released far too soon after December 31, 1999 for them to be conceived and made AFTER the vote. Anyway, that's the story.
Sugarmagnolia

I agree, Sugar, IMO many collectors thought it was a publicity stunt aimed at reviving the declining Ty beanie market then.

One 7-year-old gives stuffed duck to another
A long time ago -- seven years to be exact -- Oak Brook-based Ty Inc. donated a batch of Beanie Buddy ducks to Aurora's Rush-Copley Medical Center. The ducks were then given out one by one to pediatric patients and newborns.

Lauren Brooks, 7, received one when she was born. So did 7-year-old Kiairra Cannon. Although the girls had never met, they had something in common: they cherished the ducks they were given when they were just babies.

On March 23, Kiairra's home was destroyed by a fire. She and her mother, Jamie Scribner, and her 4-year-old brother, Latron, got out of the house safely.

Kiairra acted quickly and alerted everyone to the smoke, but the fire burned up most of the family's possessions, including Kiairra's beloved stuffed buddy.

"The night after the fire, we were at a hotel, and she cried over it," her mom said.

Scribner decided to see if she could replace the duck. She went to the hospital to see if someone could help. This is where the fairy godmother comes in -- or at least a stand-in.

Lauren's mom, Sharon Brooks, works at the hospital, and when she heard about Scribner's plight, she thought she might be able to help. Ty Inc. no longer makes the duck, so Brooks appealed to her daughter.

"I told her their story, that it was her decision to make, that she should decide what to do, and I told her to think about it," Brooks said. "She has a bear named Fiesta that is her absolute favorite, so I said, 'Think about if you lost Fiesta and somebody had a replacement Fiesta for you, wouldn't you hope that they had it in their heart to give it to you?'"

Lauren agreed to give up her duck, and her 9-year-old sister, Jillian, gave up some stuffed bears from her collection for Kiairra's brother.

Scribner said she quickly received a call back from the hospital, letting her know that a duck was donated.

"It was just real nice of that little girl," she said. "I offered to buy it, and they just gave it to us. It was important to me that my daughter felt better."

Donations for Kiairra and her family may be made through the Kane County Teachers Credit Union, Attn: Antron Cannon, 320 E. Indian Trial, Aurora, IL 60505. A fairy tale ending.

Grine or Gripe! Not sure! One thing is for sure with TY when he gets an idea....
He sure runs with it for a LOOONNNNGGG time.
I think after the first stencilled beanies or what they may be classified as I think it was enough.
However, as I have seen in the past we can probably expect to see a few more months of these pastel pink, blue, green, yellow flower stencilled beanies for a while!
In my book it is going down as a gripe!
galute

I don't think anyone is gonna know which B.B's you are referring to, could you give us some names of which ones you mean by stenciled?
albeansouth

I agree 100%.
yellow bear

Don't have a clue as to what beanies you are referring to. Help! nm
mz magoo

Sorry all.....here is what I was specifically referencing to.....
All these beanies have the same theme with the stencilled flowers.
Palms, Reefs, Sandal, Surfin, Sunburst, Sunnie, Sunrise, Sunset, and Tiki just to name a few of the beanies I was talking about!
A lot of people that I know are collectors have had enough of the wild looking beanies.....this month we are happy because TY has gone back to basics with the dogs and cats.
Thanks

Cindy's Beans has a presale for two Hallmark Exclusive Candy Canes expected in October. One is red with a white design and the other is white with a red design.

Notes From Beanie UK :

Last fall just before Christmas, on a whim, I sold my Jumbo Schweetheart. Not a good move. I was having separation anxiety, as I packed him up to head for California.

I got him just after he was released, & he has sat in a small adult rocking chair in my living room all those years. I would pat his head and smile at him everytime I went past. ;o) He has always been a magnificent conversation piece. I had decided all the Jumbos just took up so much space, & of course he was the first to be snapped up. ;o(

Olive said: "I can't believe you sold him". I just recently put out a buy on him & immediately it was picked up on. So yesterday he arrived home & I have him (temporarilly) sitting at the head of the dining room table. He looks a lot like George with his big smile.

So all is well that ends well, & Schweetheart is back to stay. Childhood is such fun isn't it?

Shirley

Doodle's Page has some great pictures of Knowledge!

According to Beans Mail , "following reports from the recent Torquay Trade Show would seem to indicate that another Cornish Exclusive could be on the cards. A sign showing the silhouette of a bear with the Cornish flag was on display!" This note seems to have been a reference to Piran , Piran, Piran and the Kernow Key Clip.

Beanie Babies whose Birthdays fall on June 1st are:

Dooley the retriever puppy [ RETIRED ]
Hippity the bunny [ RETIRED ]

The Ty June 2007
Wallpaper Calendar has been posted!

The new June 2007 Beanie Bay of the Month is Surfin' a pink octopus with an island pattern!

"This is weird" says Daniel of Beanie Universe . Surfin', the BBOM introduced today is already listed as retired! Normally, each Beanie Baby of the Month is retired one month after their introduction at about the time that the next month's Beanie Baby of the Month is introduced, in this case around July 1st. Daniel has also discovered theat O'Lucky has Sold Out.

The error has now been corrected and the listing reads... "Surfin' The June 2007 Beanie Baby of the Month [ CURRENT ]."

On the first try, a recent EBay Auction for a Chef Robuchon Beanie ended without a sale at $2,450.00 without meeting the reserve price. The bear was relisted without a reserve. The same beanie has now sold for a total of $3,550.00! Scroll down for more information about the very rare unannounced Chef Robuchon Ty Beanie!

Have you visited Ms. Janie's News Page lately! It has a brand new design ! Very nice indeed! Ms. Janie has provided a photo of "Ty's June releases all on one page" contributed by "D".

An EBay Auction found by The Beanwatcher lists the unannounced Beanie named Knowledge has a birthday on June 19, 2007!

The Cornwall Forum on the Beanie UK has had updates and pictures added. Also an additional report was posted yesterday by Lisa on Planet Beans titled CORNISH LAUNCH REPORT . Lisa also shared that in an email, "Jenni at Abbey Bears stating that she is inundated with orders for the Cornish exclusives. (Not a surprise!!) She wanted to let you know that she will respond to all of your emails as soon as she is able to. Please do not re-email her as her email box is very full currently."

A Note From Beanie UK :

Written on the plane home.....

A morning of magic, promises fulfilled,
A day quite unique, and just as was billed,
We gathered together, all friends in our quest,
And hoped once again that Ty was the best.

We were not disappointed - far from it, you'll see!
When we learned at last that "exclusive" meant three,
Or four if you like - could you ask for more?
That's why we were gathered on Padstow's fair shore!

Three versions in white, and Kernow the key ring,
All sparkles and show, you might want to sing
Your praises to those involved in this story,
Say thank you to Marcus and Jenni and Morley,
And all those above, involved in this scheme,
Fulfilled and complete, a realised dream.

Whatever your standpoint, in hobbies like these,
Today was quite special, with something to please,
Each type of collector, each twist in the tale
Adding more to the magic, Ty lifted the veil

And showed once again that the bear is sublime,
I'd go on and on, but don't have the tyme!
For me it was simple, don't know about you,
I've laughed and I've smiled, and made friendships new,
What else can I say, as this plane starts to land,
Memories made...it was fun...it was grand!

John

Notes Frm The Ty Cyberboard:

(This first note refers to a lack of input on another board while it is the one and only entry this morning on Grins and Gripes!)

Gripe: Bright Ideas beginning to dim, or did some time ago...

I wonder if the decline of posts on the bright ideas page is because folks are getting tired. All the time people post new creative ideas, some of which have already been stated numerous times and some which are clamoured for like the state bears, but Ty just isnt do anything.

People ask for meerkats, coyotes, llamas, new exotic birds, new-faced bears commemorating certain events or things, and more realistic designs but it looks like the reality is it wont make a difference to Ty. Now people post just so other collectors can hear it, not so it can actually be made into and idea. I guess we're going to to be stuck with, Unicorn, non-descript cats and dogs, and bears with clothes and cartoonish feature for a long time.

5-28-2007 MONDAY


Beanie Babies whose Birthdays fall on May 28th are:

Fleur the cat [ RETIRED ]
Floppity the bunny [ RETIRED ]

Today is known as Memorial Day in the USA. On Memorial Day people often celebrate with Bar-B-Q's and go to the beach or park in groups. Most of all however, it is a day started in 1868 to remember those who have lost their lives in war. On Memorial Day it is traditional to visit the cemetaries to remember those who fought and died to defend their country. Heroes...

Google usually has an interesting logo that is designed to fit the holiday and serves as a link to a search about that day. Today, there is no Google search for Memorial Day and oddly, no special logo... Perhaps it is too early in the day, if I am just too early, I'll post the logo and link if they ever appear...

NOTE: The key clip introduced was Kernow not Piran...

Yesterday's much anticipated launch of a new Ty exclusive Beanie Baby in the remote Village of Padstow in the Cornwall Area of the UK was finally made a reality. Several reports of the occasion which resulted in 4 new exclusive Ty Beanie bears have been posted. Here now are the posted reports and pictures:

The Beanwatcher posted a Pre aunch as well as a Post Launch report by John the Phoenix. A Beanie UK link to Pictures by Paul, aka Loopy was also posted. John and Paul are both members of Beanie UK ! The Beanwatcher also posted Jenni's report in yesterday's news!

Ms. Janie posted a report by Jenn from Abbey Bears as well as John the Phoenix's Pre Launch report.

The Cornwall Forum on the Beanie UK was set up prior to the trip to Padstow and has reports posted by those members who attended. Beanie UK was the official source of all of the hints posted in advance by The Secret Bean!

Doodle's Page posted Report from Padstow, Cornwall, UK ... shared by John (the phoenix).

Planet Beans posted this CORNISH EXCLUSIVE INFO FROM JENNI which includes "great photos and ordering information for the latest FOUR exclusives".

According to THIS most recent report posted this afternoon on The Beanwatcher . Two Ty UK, Ltd. officials were present, Morley Lester and Jonathon Swallow. Five Billionaire Bear 9 Beanies were given away to lucky customers! That explains Secret Bean's poem that had a line, "as rare as Billionaire"!

There are approcimately only 20,000 Piran Kernow Key Clips, 6,000 Piran Beanies, 1,100 Flag Nose Piran Beanies, and 950 Abbey exclusive Piran Beanie Baby bears. According to the report, visitors "were allowed to buy up to 12 regular bears, 2 flag nose bears, 1 Abbey bears Exclusive, and as many key chains as" desired!

A late evening report submitted by John The Phoenix was posted by Ms Janie's titled, Cornish Magic

Notes From Beanie UK:



I got home at 9.50 p.m. as I went to visit a friend (near Exeter) for a couple of hours on route home then went to a Little Chef for a healthy Chicken Salad.
I was one of 5 people to win a
Billionaire 9
I travelled home still on cloud 9 !!!!!! - On presentation I even cried tears of joy - never ever thought I'd own a signed TY beanie let alone a Billy beanie.
I'm just gobsmacked.
Happy Pam


Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

Someone please explain what the 4 Kernow Bears are?
I know there are black nose, flag nose & a key-clip....I only come up with those 3,,,but Beanwatcher sez there are 4 ???
albeansouth

Re:Someone please explain what the 4 Kernow Bears are?
The fourth version has its own style number and a certificate from Abbey bears, where the launch took place.

Many of us have lost interest in the UK exclusives and are not prepared to pay more than cost. And those that might like a complete collection are quitting rather having an incomplete collection. Yes, we appreciate the mail order that is available but that is only for the regular exclusives.

It is more than time for something like this to happen in North America.

Ms. Janie has received a report of a discovery by Sly of several new Trademarks applied for by Ty on May 22, 2007. They are "HOPPINGTON, QUACKINGTON. HEARTS-A-FLUTTER and HEARTS-A-PLENTY"!




5-26-2007 SATURDAY


A Beanie Baby whose Birthday falls on May 26th is:

India the tiger [ RETIRED ]

Today is the day the Cornwall exclusives will make their debut!

Ms. Janie has posted this "The Day Before the Launch of the Cornish Exclusive" report by John the Phoenix!

(Click the link above to read the whole article.)
"Padstow is a very small fishing village on the North Coast of Cornwall, the most westerly county of England, and lies sheltered from the winds from the sea in a river estuary. The working fishing boats draw many visitors to the harbour to see the catches landing, and the town is well known for its Seafood Restaurant, established and owned by Rick Stein, the famous chef. There are many other restaurants in the town, and Padstow is also home to the National Lobster Hatchery, which is developing a conservation project. Padstow remains unspoilt and full of charm, even though it attracts huge numbers of visitors, particularly during the summer months."

The Cornwall Forum on the Beanie UK Message Board has been set up to facilitate reports throughout the day exclusive to the Cornwall event and surprises!

Beanie UK

that was quick.. people must be on their wireless and posting them as they are paying for them.. one seller has 24 avalible!! with free worldwide shipping for $29.99 US... not too shabby and a lil profit for themselves LOL
Razza-Ma-Taz (Original Message)

There are two versions of Piran being auctioned.
One has a black nose and the other has a flag nose!



Point to picture for details!


Piran's birthday is written in the UK Style according to the auction, 5th March 2007 and the poem reads:

My black and white flag upon my chest
Proud to be part of the rugged south west
"Onen Hag Oll" declares the cornish moto
"one And All" to our beloved Kernow!



There are actually 4 new Piran introductions according to a report on The Beanwatcher by Jenni, an employee of Abbey Bears in Padstow, UK!

The Beanwatcher has stated that:

"The regular (retail) exclusive has a black nose. There is also a flag nose version of this exclusive. Both of these bears have a style number of 46100."

"# There is an Abbey Bears exclusive version that comes with a numbered certificate and its own style number (46101)."

"# A Kernow Key Clip was also introduced today. Its style number is 46102."

Beanie Buddy:

Tomorrow on the 26th, the Cornwall Exclusive, the surprise exclusive within the exclusive and the raffle will all be revealed!

Ms. Janie has reported that for Memorial Day "More than 30 teams are coming to Westmont’s backyard to compete this weekend for the very first grill-based Red, White and Bar-B-Q cook-off at Ty Warner Park, at Blackhawk and Plaza drives." Visit This link posted by Ms Janie for more... http://www.chicagosuburbannews.com/westmont/homepage/x1381560771


The Beanwatcher has confirmed that the beanie being offered at the St. Louis Zoo in honor of the Asian elephants, Maliha and Jade IS the same beanie known as Shocks. The commemorative version does have a special Zoo tag.

The trip to the special event in Cornwall is very far for most people in countries around the world and from the U.S. and Canada. Those living in the UK are closer but the trip is not neccesarily close by for many either. Those who do live in the UK and are able to make the trek to Cornwall and to be on time for the event are doing so with great determination. Ms. Janie has posted that she is looking forward to share a report from John The Phoenix.

The Beanie UK Message Board started by Allan is co hosted by John.

Notes from Beanie UK :

Wednesday 23 May - Thursday 24 May

Not a lot of news over the past couple of days, but I rather think that will change over the next few days!

Beanwatcher has an early preview of the June releases, and there is more discussion about the shipping costs for Summerfest, as well as more pictures of Dad 2007, this time from Marilyn. www.beanwatcher.com

I'll be away now until Saturday, so I will leave this section in the capable hands of Allán until I come down to earth after the trip to Cornwall!

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

Sugar the Ty Classic cat with the blue bow has retired today- May 25, 2007.nm
PattiBuddy, FerociousPlatypus

I hope whoever wins Robuchon is fellow sharing collector...
As far as I know there is almost no info on the Chef Robuchon bear. I've checked everywhere and can not find as much as a birthday. Also it hasnt been even offically announced yet, to my knowledge. So it seems we know nothing about this bear except the name and about how many were made. I really would like to see what the inside of the hangtag looks like too. Should be interesting. Thats why Im hoping the person who buys it will give all there info to beanwatcher or aboutbeanies with lots of pic so it can be properly recorded and everyone can have access to it. Anyone one here bidding on it or planning on bidding on it? Its a bit out of my price range just a bit lol.

Re:Chef Robuchon beanie: When I win a mega lottery, I will go on a speed hunt for all the rare beanies I can find. After I finally get Coral Casino, you will find me sitting in a corner laughing and tittering maniacally as I paw through all those hard to get finds. I will have reached the same nirvana as those folks who used to stand in line for hours watching for the delivery trucks at Hallmark stores to arrive so they could get a beanie that was the latest must have.

Notes From Beanie UK :

Well my friends, it's now official,
I hope my clues were beneficial,
9.15 is the time when all is revealed,
The designer will unveil surprises concealed

With two weeks to go, I'll open the floor,
To answer your questions, to help a bit more,
Some I will answer, some'll have to wait,
So over to you, your questons I await.........

Secret Bean

To Secret Bean

Well....now that the cat is out of the bag,
Or maybe the bear is out of the box....?
Our minds turn to detail, our questions won't lag
And we start our search, as Cornwall now rocks!

So now you'll take questions? I'm sure they'll be plenty,
In fact if I'm honest I have at least twenty!
But let's be controlled, and whittle them down...
We still want surprises when in Padstow town!

We now know there's something exclusive within
The regular version...and yet they are kin?
The same? With a difference? A box? Or a card?
A shading of colour? Or detail? It's hard!
And yet there is more in this problem to solve....
I'm starting to think that our eyes will revolve!
For other surprises we'll find in this store?
A Ty Fest indeed! We can't ask for more!

So now Secret Bean, it's over to you
To write here again, and bring into view
Some subtle arrangement of words, maybe mystic
To show us the way, please don't be too cryptic!

Well Beanie UK, I see a trend,
News on the `Special,' from your Secret Friend,
I won't spoil the fun, and tell you outright,
But a few more clues, to build & excite........

Limits there must be, to make it all real fair,
Especially on the one(s) that are nearly `Billionaire,'
In the UK, something different, never been done before,
With it's own unique Ty style number, I'd better not say anymore!

There is a report today on The Beanwatcher about An EBay auction and a request for authentication of a Chef Robuchon Beanie. On Wednesday, 4/18/2007, this photo was posted below:


From: OriginalPam (Beanie UK)


On April 20, 2007 also below, thebeanienews.com posted this PR Newswire about the 'Chef Robuchon' Beanie Baby which was only sold at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York in a limited number of only 200 having been made.

It has also been reported that "Mahalia and Jade, the newest additions to the Saint Louis Zoo's Asian Elephant herd, are becoming national celebrities! You can commemorate the half sisters' births with a Ty Beanie Baby with a custom tag made exclusively for the Saint Louis Zoo. " The Bean Watcher has noted that this could possibly be Shocks, a Ty Beanie with a unique tag for the zoo and not a new beanie.

Found on Craig's List:

This info can not be vouched for as legitimate so caution is advised when dealing with an unknown company online...
Buying all styles of beanies ! is the title of the ad, click on the title to see the ad. It includes the following web address, www.buyingbeans.com where beanies can be sold.

Caution is advised as it seems that you send your items prior to payment. EBay is mentioned but not neccesarily involved. Whether or not a payment is received is unknown and shipping is on you.

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

just noticed...
that now when you are within the site, if you click on home it takes you to the rainbow page rather than the musical page. I guess Ty was listening to the complaints. I still don't like the musical page though, seems completely unnecessary to me. I think it is enough to have the Girlz icon to click on to take you to the Girlz site. Ty needs to realize that most of his B.B. fans are not really into the Girlz. But it is Ok to have them on the site for those who are interested, just we don't want to be blasted with it every time we come to look at B.B's.

According to Brendan in a report by The Beanwatcher , "I was on the Ty Folio and noticed that the Ty Girlz are now added. Also, when you click on a post to read, the image of the Ty Product to add to the wish-list can now show a Ty Girl."



The six Girlz are indeed in the Ty Folio with all of the other Ty categories and they are all six listed as current.

Notes From Beanie UK :

Well Beanie UK, I see a trend,
News on the `Special,' from your Secret Friend,
I won't spoil the fun, and tell you outright,
But a few more clues, to build & excite........

Limits there must be, to make it all real fair,
Especially on the one(s) that are nearly `Billionaire,'
In the UK, something different, never been done before,
With it's own unique Ty style number, I'd better not say anymore!

Secret Bean

To Secret Bean

Now Cornish magic fills the air,
and Ty UK is waiting there....
The days go past, our hearts beat fast,
To think - a special treat - so rare!

You keep us entertained with guile,
There's not just one, but two with style?
You've lit the fire! How you conspire
To make us go the extra mile!

[Poem ends here, for a question instead...what do you mean by "especially on the one(s) that are nearly Billionaire" - that "s" is intriguing me!!!]

John
the phoenix

Well my friends, a few questions I see,
I cannot talk numbers, but a clue is the key,
The Exclusive within an Exclusive, this little I will tell
A very short run, my Beanie friends, with pieces less than `CML'

(Something else will be there that WILL sell out on the day...............)

Secret Bean

Is CML roman numerals? In which case it would be 950 I believe.
Paul.

Surprises now..1..2..3?
And maybe more? - what can they be?

Some clues may help, and hints inform
But I suspect we'll not get warm

To all that's there that Saturday.....
Keep them guessing... that's what he'll say!

Ready... steady...off you go...
Get there early...then you'll know!

Notes From Ms. Janie's Message Board:

Would you please give us a update on Linda's condition? We all hope she is well, and know you are taking good care of her!
Ms. Janie

THANKS FOR ASKING. LINDA IS STRONGER AND WILL

start the stationary bike Friday. The PT specialist, Nick, has done a great job in bringing her along, slowly, but surely. Her leg is still discolored with the bruises and where the blood clots were as well as where the worse swelling and blacking manifested itself.

Linda is a tough cookie though and will come through it all with flying colors.

As you know, I have been coming on the board releasing post, what few we are getting.

At the moment, I am not thinking about NC this summer, because she has to come first and it is a long trip.

Thanks again for asking,

First I'm pretty sure there are none being published anymore. I did a quick search on the bay and found 2 that seem to be the most popular. They were Mary Beth's Bean Bag World and TY Beanies and More. (I think that's right.)
I was wondering how many issues there were of each and what years they were published.
Any other general info about beanie magazines would also be appreciated.
Kind regards,

Hi all. I'm a newbie to this site, so hope I'm not overstepping my boundaries here. I saw on Ebay that there's a new Owl coming out named Knowledge, a Borders Bookstore exclusive for April. Anyone know when it's coming out/being shipped to the stores for purchase??? I went to the store tonight and they had NO CLUE!?!?!? Thanks.

that it is going to coincide with the Harry Potter release (June or July I think). Look for it closer to that time.

Do you think that Ty collectors are more middle aged plus, or young kids???? I'm talking about the true collectors, not the ones who buy a couple beanies a year. Let's hear it. Maybe Ty needs to hear it too so that he can focus his sales on the biggest buyers?? What do you think?

Something lost - and found

"Where's Monkey?"

* * *

Jennifer would have chosen the giraffe. But in a candy store in New York City, Samantha reached for the monkey - a Ty Beanie Buddy with silky brown fur and bright black eyes. She was 6 months old at the time.

When it was time to talk, Samantha named him Monkey.

When it was time to walk, she walked to Monkey, who dangled from her mother's hands.

When it was time to learn about brushing her teeth, Samantha watched Monkey get his teeth brushed first.

Every night, Jennifer or dad Shaun tucked Samantha and Monkey into bed.

To the family, Monkey was more than cotton and stuffing. When they dressed up for Halloween as the cast from A Nightmare Before Christmas, Monkey was Zero the ghost dog. When they were the Munster family, Monkey was a bat.

Samantha always held Monkey in the same pose, with her thumb in her mouth and his tail up her nose.

She didn't care when Monkey got smelly, or when his fur got hard and matted, or when his eyes got scratched in the washing machine.

A couple of years ago her mother bought a backup monkey, in case Monkey ever got lost. Fake Monkey, Samantha called him.

When it was time to play games like hide and seek, she wanted the real thing. She would leave Monkey in the closet, then come back to find him.

He'd always be there.

* * *

On April 25, he wasn't anywhere.

Samantha cried, "I don't want somebody to throw Monkey in the garbage!"

Jennifer scrambled for a number for International Plaza. Nobody had seen Monkey.

He is still out there somewhere. Every night before bed, Samantha makes the family look for him. They look under the blankets, on the couch, in the van. Samantha sleeps in her parents' room now.

Jennifer does not sleep easily either. Things are changing for her. Daughter Caitlin is 11 going on 13; son Nicky, 3, is an independent little man with no attachment to stuffed animals.

In some ways Samantha is Jennifer's last baby. But if Monkey is gone, is she still a baby?

Kindergarten is just a summer away.

* * *

Last Tuesday, Jennifer extended her search to Craig's List.

On the Web site where people find apartments and buy used treadmills, she wrote this post:

TGIF! Welcome to thebeanienews.com - the home of My Collection Complete Inventory and Value Calculating Software for Ty Beanies and All Ty Products!

Yesterday, a new line of Beanies was found to be under negotiation between Ty Warner and M.L.S., Major League Soccer!

In the past, Champion Beanies were made to represent each Country who participated in that year's FIFA Games. Every Champion Beanie and Buddy was the same excepting for the Flags on their noses. There were 32 countries each represented with a Champion Beanie Baby and a Beanie Buddy.

The new Beanie Babies being negotiated between Ty and M.L.S. will likely be to represent this time, each M.L.S. Team! Each team has it's own logo and team colors and loyal fans. The development of a new set of M.L.S. Beanies should prove to be an interesting and profitable venture for both companies as well as great collectibles for M.L.S. Soccer Fans and Ty Beanie Collectors.

M.L.S. Teams are :

Eastern Conference



Chicago Fire

Columbus Crew

D.C. United

Kansas City Wizards

New York Red Bulls

New England Revolution

Toronto FC
- -


Western Conference



Club Deportivo Chivas USA

Colorado Rapids

FC Dallas

Houston Dynamo

Los Angeles Galaxy

Real Salt Lake

"Webkinz are part Cabbage Patch Kid, part neopets, part Tamagotchi, part The Sims, part Ty Beanie Babies and part pain in almost every parent’s neck. ..."

Old pipe organ rings out for 90th year
Here's a little behind-the-scenes story from Carolyn Blashek, founder of Operation Gratitude, which has sent more than 200,000 care packages in the past four years to troops overseas and those in hospitals back home.

Two items that will be in the packages being collected for the troops this Memorial Day weekend will be 55,000 decks of playing cards and more than 6,000 Beanie Babies that soldiers can give to kids in Iraq and Afghanistan to help win their trust and get them to tell where landmines have been buried.

"Seniors from all over Michigan collected bulk playing cards from the casinos in the Midwest, then took them to senior centers to be sorted into decks," Blashek said. "The problem was, they could not afford the close to $10,000 to ship them to us. Meanwhile, a Girl Scout troop in New Berlin, Wis., not only sold Girl Scout cookies for us, but organized a Beanie Baby collection drive after reading the letter from a Marine on our Web site about Beanies saving the lives of troops.

"The girls collected 32 barrels of Beanies, but the shipping was going to cost several thousand dollars they didn't have," Blashek said. When officials at Roadway, a national shipping company, heard the story, they sent a truck to Michigan that then went on to Wisconsin to collect the items and drive them out to Van Nuys for free. Nice touch, Roadway.


The Beanwatcher and Ms. Janie have reported that Max and Ruby are now available in the Tystore!

Ms. Janie has also reported a change on the Ty Girlz site. According to Ms. Janie, "For those of you who have been enjoying the Girlz site, know now that you earn more money when playing the games. Initially I would only earn a couple of dollars per game, that amount has increased, take a peek! I have also noticed that a few new animations have been added as well. "

The Beanwatcher has noted that "the four Boblins (comprised of Gully, Pi, Ruddle, and Yam Yam) are Canada / Sweden / Australia / New Zealand exclusives. The version called Gimmy is a Sweden exclusive." Go to to The Beanwatcher and Ms. Janie to see in hand pictures of the Boblins!

Before anyone complains about the increased Ty Store shipping charges, keep in mind the U.S. postal rate increase occurs on May 14th which is probably going to be before Honor Roll ships.

I was jest leaving work this morning and happen to go past the Hospital gift shop and there hung the TY girlz,yes all six of them in person.I think there arms and legs are too long, it makes them look too long for the size of there faces but I guess its in the eyes of the beholder.Any one looking for the TY Girlz take a trip past the gift shop at Childrens Hospital ( Columbus, Ohio )and take a look. I cant make up my mind if Im going to get them or not,I think they are too legy, Oh well tyme will tell.
yellow bear The Beanie Baby of the Month for May 2007 has been introduced and is posted above. The Beanwatcher posted a picture last night of the May 2007 Beanie Baby of the Month . Everyone is also expecting the May 2007 Ty Wallpaper Calendar. There have been requests on the Ty Cyberboard recently for the calendar to be issued twice per month. The reason for this request is because since the calendar always has a holiday theme, often the holiday comes and goes and the theme becomes stale before the month has ended.

A: Chocolate the Moose. From 8 Jan 1994 'til 31 Dec 1998.

TY is not following its course. Beanie Babies are not girlz business!
We never saw the blue footed birds from Ecuador, the Condor, the frigate bird, the seagull. Also never saw the llama from the Andes! the elusive echidna from New Zealand, the only other egg-laying mammal, like the platypus!
TY even never made a chicke! a rooster and chicks! but no chicken!
Let's get back to what TY did best!

Notes From Beanie UK:

Hello my friends, it's me again, with a little bit of advice,
I cannot tell you very much, but I hope this will suffice,
For those of you who are on the hunt for some friends of Piglin Bland
I'm afraid your trip to the Lake District, may now be slightly later than
planned......

Secret Bean

Oh well....oh dear....but never mind!
Those treasures we can wait to find......
The other six were worth the wait,
It doesn't matter if these are late....

At least now now, when Cornish rumour
Keeps us all in great good humour!
The time will come when Lakeland stories
Will take the place of Padstow glories!

Thanks for letting us know, Secret Bean!

The Ty Cyberboard Daily Tymes is quite full today. Grins and Gripes and Mixed Bag are however quite empty.

Notes From Beanie UK:

More clues & hints, I hear you say,
No problem my friends of Beanie UK,
You now know the date & place & the time,
So on with the fun, with a Secret Bean rhyme!

Allan has asked if our friend is a bear,
And John is asking, `are you thinking rare?'
The answer to these, I'll happily confess,
A special rare bear, crikey, oh yes!

A super rare version, will be there on the day,
But only to those present, on the 26th May,
A few more surprises, I'll keep just for now,
But one things for sure, there'll be plenty of WOW!

The designer of Kernow (and of our new friend too),
Will be there on the day, to chat and talk to you,
He'll give you the details, and explain just how rare,
One, almost as limited, as a Billionaire bear!!

Locals, tourists, collectors and friends,
Padstow's the place, where our new friend transcends
So `Get there early,' I hope you all see,
How popular and uncommon this Beanie will be,


Secret Bean

I thought about the bicycle,
The bus, the train, the car....
But realised tonight, at last,
It's really much too far..

Decisions then, when time is tight,
And so I've gone and booked a flight....
You really have to use your wings..
When looking for such special things....

Through clouds and mist the Phoenix rises!
He will be there for rare surprises!
To meet with Jen, and many others,
Girlz and bands of beanie brothers!

Thank you, Jen for lists provided,
Just that bit to be decided....
And then it's done, it's coming true..
(I've booked a seat for Kernow too!)

Does anyone realise that Cornwall is miles away from everywhere, stuck quite literally in a corner. I'll need to find out if Nat Xpress do coaches down there and long it would take. It takes 3 hours to get to London by them. I live in Birmingham, so theres plenty of miles. If I cannot make it, can someone else be kind enough to get me one or maybe 3!
DarthDMC1

Hi All,
dont know if it will help at all, but just too let you know, although we are right at the end of the UK, many of the airports around the UK do fly into Newquay airport which is only a 15min drive MAXIMUM from Padstow, the airlines that fly to Newquay are.....BMI Baby, Air Southwest, British Airways and Ryan Air, and you are able to get flights from ..... Gatwick, Stanstead, Leeds/Bradford, Manchester, Bristol, Dublin, Cork, Cardif, Edinburgh, Belfast, and even Zurich, Switzerland! The web address for Newquay airport is www.newquay-airport.co.uk Some of the flights start from as little as �28, whenever I fly up to London ( as I did for the Harrods Beanie Launch ) my total return flight cost was only �49 including taxes and was loads less than driving or going by train, and only took 50 mins compared to an 8-10 hour one way coach journey.
Anyhow, just an idea if anyone happens to have one of these airports near to them ????

Second,no I'm not the bidder.I might have read into this wrong,but I posted the story as I thought it was fun.I sincerely hope you don't think I've been schill bidding. If I had, not a great idea to advertise the fact on an open forum..

Third,true about the writing.You can't see it.I'd have displayed it with the tag open....

Finally,my friend as at noon today still hasn't been payed..and without revealing too much he feels it is unlikely he will be. Still,hope springs eternal....

A funny place this world we live in,full of odd people who seem to like messing up other peoples auctions. Still a good story though

Beanie Babies whose Birthdays fall on April 23rd are:

Charlie the monkey [ CURRENT ]
Eggs the bear [ RETIRED ]
Opie the octopus [ RETIRED ]
Opie the Octopus (Sea Center Exclusive) [ RETIRED ]
Rose the bear (Ty Europe Exclusive) [ RETIRED ]
Squealer the pig [ RETIRED ]
Squealer the pig [ RETIRED ]
William the bear (Europe Exclusive) [ RETIRED ]
William the bear (Europe Exclusive) [ RETIRED ]

There is a change on the Ty Beanie Baby Main Page. As of this note, three spinners have been removed and only the one for Salute remains.

Beanie UK's cheshirebear1 pointed out the completed auction posted below in yesterday's news for an authenticated Quackers oddity spelled Quacker. Anonymous bidding began at GBP 82.99 on April 20th. 33 bids and two days later on April 22nd, the final bid was won by the 2nd of 4 Bidders whose winning bid was GBP 10,009.00 that is US $20,065.04 ! There is a post on the Ty Cyberboard that asks if you have ever spent too much on a Beanie. This was certainly a rather expensive one !

While this page considered the Bidders and Seller to seem reputable based on their apparent length of time on ebay with no bad feedback. The Beanwatcher has a bit of a different opinion based on their bidding and feed back histories.

The Beanwatcher has offered his congratulations to the winner but has noted that "The winning bidder (Bidder 2) has 100% positive feedback. But his feedback score is 2 and he bid 23 times on this single auction." Also that "Bidder 4 placed bids on 90 items during the past 30 days, retracted 14 bids during this time period, and retracted 35 bids in the past six months."

The Beanwatcher has posted a wonderful picture of a perishable Ty Collectible! This 3 inch tall and 2.5 inch wide Ty Chocolate was given to attendees of the Ty Executive National Sales Meeting held between the 8th and 10th of December 2006.

Notes From Ms. Janie's Message Board:

the STRANGEST dream

Last night I had the strangest dream
I ever dreamed before
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war
I dreamed I saw a mighty room
The room was filled with men
And the paper they were signing said
They'd never fight again

And when the papers all were signed
And a million copies made
They all joined hands and bowed their heads
And grateful prayers were prayed
And the people in the streets below
Were dancing round and round
And guns and swords and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground

Last night I had the strangest dream
I ever dreamed before
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war

A Report From Ms. Janie :

According to Sly The Beanie Guy, he has discovered an application for a new Ty Trademark by Ty Warner for - TY - which has been described as services associated with a Bar, Hotel and Restaurant. The Trademark Sly noted is not registered to Ty Inc but is registered to "Ty Warner Hotels & Resorts, LLC LTD LIAB CO".

The Secret Bean has been providing clues for some time now about a new UK Exclusive(scroll down to see the most recent clue on 4/20/2007). A while back rumors of an exclusive named Devon resulted in pre sales for a Beanie Baby that never was introduced. According to The Beanwatcher the unannounced UK, Cornwall Exclusive Bear to be Launched in Padstow, England, will be the once anticipated Devon. This new exclusive may or may not have the name Devon though.

Reflections......

Now that we're calm, and more collected,
Let's look again at what's projected...

When going back to clues we've seen,
We'll need to quiz our Secret Bean.

He's been evasive....clever too...
I'm thinking RARE - hope you are too!

So does this mean the few it seems,
Or is that only in my dreams?

So less is more?...or more is LESS?...
....the makings of a great success.....!

And Padstow Town upon that day,
Will lead the way for Ty UK!

"In Person" still is standing out....
That's how we'll know what it's about!

The Secret Bean holds every card...
Let's hope his hints don't get too hard!

John
the phoenix

More clues & hints, I hear you say,
No problem my friends of Beanie UK,
You now know the date & place & the time,
So on with the fun, with a Secret Bean rhyme!

Allan has asked if our friend is a bear,
And John is asking, `are you thinking rare?'
The answer to these, I'll happily confess,
A special rare bear, crikey, oh yes!

A super rare version, will be there on the day,
But only to those present, on the 26th May,
A few more surprises, I'll keep just for now,
But one things for sure, there'll be plenty of WOW!

The designer of Kernow (and of our new friend too),
Will be there on the day, to chat and talk to you,
He'll give you the details, and explain just how rare,
One, almost as limited, as a Billionaire bear!!

Locals, tourists, collectors and friends,
Padstow's the place, where our new friend transcends
So `Get there early,' I hope you all see,
How popular and uncommon this Beanie will be,

Secret Bean

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

Devon beanie is back!
I read that it will be rare. Oooooh, $hould I fly to England and get it? I'm going to $pend lotsa money to get the ticket and get this rare bear. I hope it's gonna be good!

Kids think of others
"Children in war-ravaged countries tend to grow up quickly, many having lost their homes, family and any sense of security, having gained the feelings of fear and distrust, and being permanently deprived of the innocence of childhood. Local Girl Scouts are hoping the gift of a Beanie Baby to a child, a kindness from a soldier and Mailbag readers, will be one small comfort to hold onto."

The birthplace of Earth Day keeps the faith
"I'd always thought of Santa Barbara as a high-gloss, devil-may-care kind of place. After all, this affluent city, just 150 kilometres north of Los Angeles, markets itself as the American Riviera and boasts enough celebrity sightings, multi-million-dollar homes and chi-chi shops to suggest its residents -- and those who come to play -- spend their days in self-centred indulgence."

"But in a land of peroxide blondes, Santa Barbara has impressively green roots. The story goes that in 1969 a devastating oil spill occurred off the coast here. The late Senator Gaylord Nelson visited the area and, spurred on by what he saw, spearheaded legislation to declare April 22 as a national day to celebrate the planet. From Santa Barbara's oily beaches, Earth Day was born."

"Sitting on West Beach today, shifting crystals of white sand through my fingers, it's hard to imagine the devastation. To my right, in Santa Barbara Harbor, locals buy spot prawns at the Saturday morning Fisherman's Market. To my left, visitors walk the wooden planks of Stearns Wharf, a 135-year-old pier that's home to touristy restaurants and the child-friendly Warner Sea Center (as in Ty Warner, of Beanie Babies fame). Behind me, cyclists, rollerbladers, runners and tourists in surrey-style peddle cars cruise the palm-studded promenade that parallels the seashore..."

Local Students Send "Letter To Soldiers"
" Several Army National Guard soldiers and their families are saying an emotional goodbye this weekend. ...The soldiers are being deployed to Afghanistan, where the war on terror is far from over... Support takes the form of gift bags, Beanie Babies in matching camouflage and banners that family members will display in their front windows back home."

Local Soldiers Gear Up For Deployment This Weekend
"A Dauphin County high school is supporting the military through a program called 'Letters to Soldiers.' The Letters to Soldiers program started at Halifax High School. Students wanted to show their support to the troops... Students took the program even further when they started collecting bicycles, Beanie Babies, and soccer balls to send over to troops.

" 'These are improvised explosive devices or small bombs planted all over the street; they're very very dangerous; and very often the children know where they are, so in exchange for information, as to where the bombs are hidden, the children will be given soccer balls or Beanie Babies in return,' Rebecca Walton-Adrian, program organizer, said."

According to a report from Lisa at Planet Beans , " film, and TV stars have been posing for photos with elephants for a charity project called the Elephant Project to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. Celebrities including Felicity Huffman, Kristin Chenoweth, and Julianne Moore, have been posing with an elephant beanie baby and signing specialized Elephant Project cards in order to create items for auctions. Rounds of auctions are held every few months, with each celebrity package consisting of an 8x10 photo of the celebrity and an elephant, an autographed card, and an elephant beanie baby."

Visit Beanie UK for the entire story and more!

Well my friends, it's time for a quiz,
Some questions for you, let's see who's a whiz
So on your marks, get ready, let's go!
And find the date for your trip to Kernow......

(The no. of Billionaire 9's made) x (Date in March of St. Pirans Day) � (The number in the poem of Majestic) + (The number on Bearons Chest Pin) + (The last two digits of Slamdunks style number) � (The `Green' Billionaire) + (Add the numbers in Kernows style number together) + (The number of years Ty has made Harrods Exclusives) - (Add the numbers of Williams Red Brother style number together) = The Big Day in May

So there you are, now you have the date,
Be there early, you don't want to be late,
A few more clues are on the way,
It will all become clear on the big day

Secret Bean

Ok so its 480*5/80+100+14/8+22+3-18

which is 480*5 = 2400/80 = 30+114 = 144/8 =18+25 = 23-18 = 5

And the 5th May is a Saturday

Paul.

Not quite, try again..............

Secret Bean

Am I imagining this or did Secret Bean post that it would not be 5 May?
Blodwen1

Initial thoughts.....!

Our Paul has done the calculation,
And now there's cause for celebration!

We have a date, a time, a place
And we can all get off the case!

It's time to make arrangements now,
And find a way, a route, somehow

To travel south, and feast our eyes
On Kernow's heir(s) - a real surprise!

Will YOU be there, to shout and cheer?
It seems that it is very near!

Just 17 days - not long to wait
To be outside - anticipate

The joys within, to be collected,
And as we know...Ty unexpected!

John
the phoenix

Second thoughts.....!

Oh no!....an error in the sum!
And we all thought the deed was done!

Let's look again and get it right
Or I'll be writing through the night!

lol

John
the phoenix

Hi all,
When I did the sums it ended up being the 22nd May!

480*5=2400 then divided by 80 = 30 + 100 =130 + 14 = 144 then divided by 8= 18 +22= 40 + 4 = 44 -22 = 22

Is this right Secret bean?

Fingers crossed!
Katherine

Third thoughts.....!

Looks like Katherine's got it right,
No need to stay up half the night!

There'll be a crowd, a busy day,
When folks will be on holiday!

But I'll not let that be a reason,
I'll join in with the summer season!

It can't be missed, I've got to go..
If that's the day, go with the flow!

Ok, come on - we'll head the queue,
If that is what we have to do!

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

Hi PBFP, I added my profile last night but I...
wont have my whole collection up for awhile since I have Dial Up. Ugh I cant stand it. Thats what I was hoping, that more collectors would join and contribute to the site since it appears to be ran by the collecting members. I alerted beanwatcher so hopefully they'll post a report on it soon and get some more collectors on it. It seems like a great idea to me it just needs a little bit of a kick start to get some more collectors on it to help out the database. Who knows smaashmatic could be the next big thing in beanie collecting :)
~Blue Stripe~
The Blue Stripe

Hi BlueStripe! I've been having fun inputting data all day. Jon has been great

with helping me figure out how best to list things, so that when collectors search for info, they'll be able to find stuff easily using key words, animal types, etc.

Ugh dial up! I had that until last year so I totally feel for you there! I'd never be able to do what I'm trying to do if I didn't have my cable modem haha.

I started lugging out some of my Ty Plush bears for their photo ops haha. I am causing avalanches everywhere in this house as I grab my Ty friends from where they normally "live" haha.

I hope that more people get into this too. I am so excited to have the chance to compile this Ty Plush Classics database project. I'd love it if others contributed, especially pics of stuff I don't have.

You have an awesome night and I think I need to stop typing for today haha. Keep having fun!

Businesses band together to raise funds for March of Dimes
"Each day, more than 1,300 babies are born prematurely and researchers are still trying to figure out why. Funding gathered through the March of Dimes helps to gather more understanding of an issue that plagues new parents every day. ...Frontier Refinery spokesperson Jackie Anthony is attempting to get her employees to walk and collect donations as well. The company offers each of their volunteers a T-shirt and a chance to win a new digital camera. In the last few years, Anthony said Frontier has sold �a lot of Beanie Babies� in an effort to raise money for March of Dimes."

EG's Sgt. Roberti working to make Iraq a better place
"On November 12, 2006, the Humvee that Roberti was driving while patrolling a highway in Iraq was struck by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in a truck. That incident killed two American soldiers and one Iraqi interpreter- friends of Roberti's. It also injured Roberti, sending shrapnel into his back, shoulder and hand. Roberti was lucky. He survived. And in honor of his bravery and actions on that day, he was awarded the Purple Heart medal by the United States government. Roberti and the other soldiers give the kids Beanie Babies sent over from America. The children of the First Baptist Church of East Greenwich recently collected 240 Beanie Babies for the Iraqi children that Roberti's mother sent over to him. The children, he said, were thrilled. 'It's so hard,' Roberti explained. 'Because, as easily as I can give one of them a piece of candy, I have to be ready to shoot. We have to make sure that these 50 kids who are running up to us, that one of them doesn't have an AK on him,' Roberti continued. 'You want to give them the benefit of the doubt, but we always have to keep our guard up.' The insurgents, he said, are everywhere. And you just never know."

Notes From The Ty Cyberboard:

Interesting New Website for Beanie Collectors...
was browsing around and ran across of a new site which may be of particular interest to some beanie collectors. It is called stashmatic. From what I could tell it is like a cross between Myspace(supress your screams) and AboutBeanies. It appears you sign up(completly free) and create a "profile" which does not have to have any personal info on it(for those of you still reeling at the myspace word)and then you can add the beanies to your have or want list. The beanies profiles have all the info on them and appear failry accurate. You can make your list public so others can see your collection or private, and you dont have to have ANY personal info even your name if you dont want to. It looks like the beanie collection was all done on 4/10 so just a week ago so that might be why it has not got much attention. To reach the beanies its on the home page under the popular Categories box.

Notes From Beanie UK :

Claire on Beanie UK Has reported a Beanie Bear find!

Hi

I've already emailed this link directly to Richard but for everyone else check out

http://snack.blogs.com/snack/2006/09/snackstuff_robu.html

Quite a rare beanie - there are none on ebay that I can see.

Claire
*****

I've never heard of it and would be interested in hearing more about it, and seeing a photo of the hang tag and tush tag. It is a cute outfit. There are many talented people who make outfits for beanies, I'd be interested in knowing if it was a private promotion or official Ty.
Love: Karen
*****

Hi Richard
Ty Inc confirmed that yes, this is an actual beanie. Not many were made. I am hoping for a confirmation on how many 'not many' means. As everyone's probably read by now, it was to mark the opening of the new restaurant in the Four Season's hotel in New York. Any more info I find out, I'll share.

Introducing L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon at Four Seasons Hotel New York

I sure hope I can find one, because I have always thought the day I can't complete my collection, is the day I'll stop.
Love: Karen
*****


From: OriginalPam
*****

The site I found suggests that only 200 were made - I'm just surprised that we've never seen them on ebay!
Blodwen1
*****

Claire, there could be a few reasons for that.

1) No one was looking for it. Ms. Janie had reported about Chef Robuchon opening the restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel in New York, but no one ever mentioned a beanie baby being made.

2) The people who go to such a restaurant are probably not sellers on Ebay.

There are probably other scenarios.

Beanie Babies for Guard babies
Stuffed animals give comfort to kids whose parents are at war
Oregon Army National Guard Sgt. Kenneth Heywood received 108 babies in the mail on Friday.

And the proud father couldn't be happier � that they were Beanie Babies dubbed "Salute" dressed in desert camouflage sent at no charge by TY Industries based in Bolingbrook, Ill.

"I didn't expect this � what a nice thing to do," he said. "I want to give them to young kids whose parents are in Afghanistan. It will bring comfort to them."

The Phoenix resident, an 18-year veteran of the Guard, is a member of the Guard's 1-186 Infantry Battalion headquartered in Ashland. Roughly 100 members of the 1-186 are currently deployed to Afghanistan as part of the Tigard-based 41st Brigade Combat Team, although some are expected to begin returning home next month.

The deployment of Beanie Babies, a company of tiny Teddy bears dressed in light-colored camouflage, was the result of an e-mail that Heywood had sent to the company after purchasing one on the Oregon coast about three weeks ago.

Heywood and his wife, Amy, were in Newport with their daughter, Baylee, who turns three on Thursday. Baylee spotted the Beanie Baby sitting on a shelf.

"She picked it up and said, 'Mommy and Daddy, I want this,' " her father recalled. Baylee later said, "Daddy, he looks like you."

"She loves it," he said. "She carries it everywhere."

After they returned home, Heywood noticed a Web site on the $6 price tag. He e-mailed the firm, telling them about his daughter's affection for the Beanie Baby and asking if they would consider any promotional donations to Guard families.

Heywood said he heard nothing from the company until the box of 108 Beanie Babies arrived.

"I want to give them to the little kids (with parents) in the battalion," he said. "They'll give comfort to kids five years and younger."

Members of the 1-186, which has units in Medford, Grants Pass, Klamath Falls and Roseburg, volunteered last June to augment the 41st Brigade Combat Team deployed to Afghanistan for a year. All told, about 850 members of the Oregon Guard are stationed there training army and police units.

They will begin returning stateside next month in groups of 150, according to Guard officials in Salem.

Reach reporter Paul Fattig at 776-4496 or e-mail him at pfattig@mailtribune.com.


Where the Kennedys honeymooned
" Don't look for original furnishings. The eclectic decor, with Asian-style chests, animal paintings and pig and rooster figurines, was gleaned from antiques stores and the travels of the resort's owner, Beanie Babies tycoon Ty Warner. No matter. The Kennedys slept here, starting Sept. 28, 1953, for one or more nights, according to the hotel's staff and guest register. And because the cottage is historic, the basic layout and structure, built from locally quarried Santa Barbara sandstone, are unchanged, said architect Marc Appleton. "
