It comes as no surprise that Beanie Boos are Ty’s most popular plush toys at the moment. These cuddly creatures have big, glittery eyes and oversize heads, making them simply irresistible to kids and adults alike. From everyday animals to mythical beasts, you’re sure to find a new friend in a Beanie Boo.
If your kids are asking you for Beanie Boos, it’s a good idea to read up on Ty’s extensive collection of creatures. Here’s our buying guide with an overview, plus we’re sharing some helpful buying tips so you can build your Beanie Boo collection in no time.
If you’re looking for your favorite animal, there’s at least one Beanie Boo iteration of it. There’s a wide variety of jungle animals, sea creatures, dinosaurs, insects, pets, mythical beasts, and even holiday-themed creatures like goblins and skeletons.
It should be noted that “mythical beasts” is a bit of a catch-all term when it comes to Beanie Boos. This category includes fantasy creatures like dragons and unicorns, as well as sparkle-horned animals. Basically, you’ll find “unicorn” varieties of Beanie Boos for virtually all animals, running the gamut from sloths to giraffes to owls.
Small Beanie Boos are 6 inches tall, and their medium counterparts are over twice that size at approximately 13 inches. There are some taller ones as well. Keep in mind that not all creatures are available in all sizes. A quick visit to the Ty website should answer any questions about availability.
Part of the appeal of Beanie Boos is their affordability. They’re great budget-friendly gifts, or, even better, kids can save their allowance to buy themselves one. Small Beanie Boos cost $7 to $10, while medium Beanie Boos cost around $12 to $18. There are some outliers that are more expensive, mostly due to the bump in value once a Beanie Boo is retired or becomes highly collectible.
Beanie Boos are made with several types of plush, which mostly depends on the style of the creature. Some Beanie Boos feature Ty’s signature soft, low-pile polyester plush, while others have fluffy, long-haired fuzz. There are also Beanie Boos with iridescent textured plush, which is most frequently seen on Ty’s dinosaurs, reptiles, amphibians, and fish.
If you remember the Beanie Baby craze of the 1990s, you know that hang tags were a defining feature. Ty continues the tradition with Beanie Boos, and even stays true to its roots by embracing the original tag design.
The inside of the hang tag includes the Beanie Boo’s name, birthday, and a short poem that elevates the creature into a character. The front of the hang tag features the Ty and Beanie Boo logos, and the back features manufacturing information and the SKU code.
In addition to the traditional 6- and 13-inch Beanie Boos, Ty also manufactures Clip Beanie Boos, which are around 3 inches tall and have plastic carabiner clips. The new Flippable Beanie Boo line has creatures covered with sequins that when brushed over, transition between two shiny colors.
Q. How do I clean my Beanie Boos?
A. The plush on Beanie Boos can be spot cleaned with a diluted mixture of water and white vinegar. If you need to use soap, make sure it’s a gentle, non-bleaching laundry detergent. Keep in mind that Beanie Boos shouldn’t be placed in the washing machine, so if they’re very soiled, you might be better off buying a replacement.
Q. Will Beanie Boos be worth a lot of money one day?
A. It’s always hard to predict trends in collectibles. There are people who still have their 1990s Beanie Babies, some of which are worth a fortune, while others are worth a few bucks apiece. Certain retired Beanie Boos are desirable to collectors. If you do your research and are willing to part with your Beanie Boos, you might make a small profit.
Q. What are the most popular Beanie Boo varieties?
A. At the moment, Flippable Beanie Boos are top sellers. Trending animals like llamas, sloths, and narwhals are also popular. As a result, it can be a bit harder to find these than other Beanie Boos.
