Ty Japan announced on its Instagram account that it has a new official line of Beanie-related stickers available for purchase in the Line messaging app. The stickers, apparently 40 in all, feature images of both Beanie Boo and Beanie Baby characters with cute messages written in both English and Japanese.
The post reads (using an automated translation service: “Announcement. You know what? What a ty mate to be a line sticker! Do you have recommendation?” They then share a link, https://line.me/S/sticker/4441931, that (when opened on a mobile phone with the Line app installed) takes you directly to purchase the sticker pack. The description in the app says “Ty JAPAN presents cute plush stamp. Use for daily communication. Though plush can’t talk, they want to be your communication tool.”
To get and use the stickers, you must download the free Line messaging app on your smart phone and create an account. The sticker pack costs 50 “Line Points,” which can be earned by completing certain tasks within the Line environment.
