A huge shout-out to the eagle-eyes at beanie-boo-collection.jimdo.com for reporting about this exciting new Halloween exclusive! Meet Ozzy the bat, a Walgreens Drugstore exclusive Ty Beanie Boo. Ozzy appears to be similar to the other 2018 Halloween bat Beanie Boo, Count, but with blue fur instead of purple. (The name Ozzy is also a clever nod to a rather gruesome moment of English heavy metal rock star Ozzy Osbourne.)

My local Walgreens hasn’t put out their Halloween merchandise yet, but I can’t wait to get my hands on this surprise exclusive!

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.

According to the Apple App Store, “Line reshapes communication around the globe, bringing you closer to your family, friends, and loved ones–for free. With voice and video calls, messages, and limitless variety of exciting stickers, you’ll be able to express yourself in ways that you’ve never thought possible. With over 600 million users worldwide, Line’s constantly expanding platform will continue to provide exciting new experiences and convenience.”

In-hand: Claire’s Halloween exclusive

The latest Claire’s exclusive is hitting stores! I posted a few days ago about a mysterious new Beanie Boo cat, speculating it might be a Claire’s exclusive. This evening I made a trip to my local Claire’s to see if she was there. I was in luck! Now that this kitty is finally hitting stores, we know more about her: Her name is Spellbound, and her birthday is October 19. Her poem reads:

I have sparkling eyes and very shiny fur
If you listen closely, you’ll even hear me purr !

Spellbound the cat is a great addition to this year’s lineup of Halloween Beanies from Ty. Her unique, rainbow-colored sparkly fur will make her a great addition to your Beanie Boo collection!

A new Halloween exclusive?

2018 Ty Beanie Boo Halloween Exclusive Cat
2018 Ty Beanie Boo Halloween Exclusive Cat

An image has surfaced of an as-of-yet unreleased Ty Beanie Boo Cat, likely for Halloween. My guess is, since we didn’t see this kitty Beanie Boo included in Ty’s Halloween preview, this will be a store exclusive.

The Halloween Beanie Boo cat is black with shiny, colorful flecks–much like the Leggz the spider Halloween Beanie Boo that we’ve already seen. She has an orange tummy, orange ears, and one orange and one green eye.

What store do you think this kitty will be exclusive to? My money is one Claire’s, but we’ve recently seen exclusives come out for Cracker Barrel and Joann’s Fabric as well. Tyme will tell!

Creds to @hawaii_beanieboos for finding this image first. So excited to get this one in-hand!
