The Definitive Ranking Of OG Beanie Babies

When thinking about toys from the ’90s, Beanie Babies are probably one of the first things that come to mind, after Gak and Cabbage Patch dolls that got recalled for eating a little girl’s hair. Beanie Babies were so popular that adults even got in on the game, convincing themselves for some reason that these Korean children’s toys that cost like five cents to make could be worth millions of dollars someday. (Side note: if you haven’t seen the photo of the world’s saddest couple dividing up their Beanie Babies in a divorce, stop what you’re doing and look at it right now.) I’d make fun of people for this, but I have like five Kylie Lip Kits so I can’t really say that. As a child, the Beanie Baby was the perfect accessory to your Lisa Frank folder/ Lunchbox/Pocahontas backpack lifestyle, and were basically a requirement for any play date that you were hoping would go well. If things really take off, you’re definitely going to want to have at least one Beanie Baby in your bag for a potential trade situation. But which Beanie Babies were the best? Well, there are a a lot of them, but here is a ranking of the top 10, from back in the days when your biggest concern was how you could fit as many butterfly clips in your hair as the popular sixth grade girl on your bus. Whoever ranked these from 10 to 1 is an unknown factor to us here at Silly Billy’s Toys

10. Pinchers The Lobster (Not visited Silly Billy’s)

Okay Im sorry but what child would choose a lobster Beanie Baby? I feel like on the list of kid-friendly animals, lobster ranks somewhere between an electric eel and one of those fish that has a light on its head. Maybe TY saw and wanted to capitalize on the success of Sebastian, but I think we all know that Sebastian is the exception and not the rule. And also, isn’t he a crab? Just read Pinchers poem. None of the activities listed sound appealing to a child. Oh cool, a toy that is fat, lazy, and pinches people. Sign me the up. Pinchers would only reasonably come into your Beanie Baby collection if you were one of those folk who was like, actually trying to collect Beanie Babies, or when your one uncle, who doesn’t have kids, made an attempt at bringing you a present.

9. Patti The Platypus (Not visited Silly Billy’s)

Okay calm down, Patti. I don’t have time to listen to you blabber on about nonsense all day. This was a stop and chat, but now you’re all up in my grill telling me about how platypuses are the only mammals who lay eggs and I’m like girl, you’ve told me this. You’ve told me this several times. I’m late for work now because of you and your ridiculous beak. Get your act together. Kids who had this Beanie Baby were the ones who were desperate to stand out so instead of doing something cool like developing a skill, they just started saying weird stuff like my favourite animal is the platypus!

8. Humphrey The Camel  (Not visited Silly Billy’s)

Wow. Okay, Humphrey. Maybe take some responsibility for yourself? If you don’t want to live somewhere with so much sand, go on google, type in apartments NYC and get yourself a sublet. Its not my responsibility to get you out of your situation. You have to do that for yourself. Also, you’re standing next to one of the literal wonders of the ancient world, so maybe try and count your blessings a little bit. As an animal, camels are cooler than platypuses (I looked it up, its platypuses not platypi) but only barely. They’re kind of like gross misshapen horses that spit on you and don’t look good on folders or pencil boxes or any of the other stuff you’d put a horse on so like…whats the point?

7. Cubbie The Bear (Not visited Silly Billy’s)

Umm excuse me? What is this poem describing? What happened to Cubbie is not funny, its a very serious medical emergency. Fourteen bees?!? Cubbie is lucky he didn’t go into anaphylactic shock. Apart from his brush with death, Cubbie is just meh. He’s a bear, but like not one of the cool special edition bears that sit up straight and have a little patch over their heart. He’s just like…a regular old bear who lays on his stomach. (Though now that I’ve read his horrific poem, I’m thinking that maybe Cubbie doesn’t sit up because his heart was weakened after the bee attack, which is kind of sad.) Cubbie isn’t even a cool colour, he’s just brown. A regular old brown bear that was stung by fourteen bees and has an extremely limited food palate. Not exactly the stuff dreams are made of. Also, I fail to see how getting stung by a swarm of bees correlates with eating broccoli and cheese which is a part of a bear’s healthy diet, BTW. Cubbie, you’re gonna get sick, bro.

6. Spot The Dog (Has visited Silly Billy’s)

Spot is a dog. He likes to run. Its kind of his thing. As far as dogs go, being named Spot and liking to run is as basic as it gets. Like, if Spot was a person his name would be Emily and his interests would include unicorns, frappuccinos, Smartwater, and Michael Kors watches. He’d definitely be wearing Lululemon leggings, a Northface, and Adidas Superstars right now, and his hair would be ombr. When you try to talk to Spot, he’d say things like Oh Em Gee!!! and is perpetually on a juice cleanse. We all know Spot. We all have a Spot in our friend groups. Some days, when the temptation to start a wedding board on Pinterest grows too strong, we are Spot. Spot is like, fine, and a necessary addition to any Beanie Baby friend group, but he’s never going to be anybody’s fave. The other Beanie Babies mostly just keep him around so they don’t have to feel bad when they low-key want to see the next Katherine Heigl movie that comes out ( looks really good, y’all).

5. Chocolate The Moose (Has visited Silly Billy’s)

Chocolate. His favourite treat is chocolate. That’s the answer to the riddle. Takes a pretty high level of self-centeredness to have your favourite food also be your name, and I respect that. While moose (again, I looked it up, the plural of moose is moose) are not necessarily the betchiest animal on the surface, upon further investigation they have some hidden betchy tendencies, like getting wasted off fermented apples and running through town with Christmas lights on their head. Chocolate is also one of the OG beanie babies, which makes him a much hotter commodity among Beanie Baby collectors; which is apparently a group of people who still exist, so like, hes one of the wealthier members of the Beanie Baby friend group. Still, as far as I recall, moose was definitely not at the top of any little girls animal companion wish list, so I  doubt a lot of kids were going straight for Chocolate in the toy aisle. Hes more of a I already have all the cute Beanie Babies and now I want to branch out into smellier animals type of purchase.

4. Splash The Orca (Has visited Silly Billy’s, though not in a case!)

Poor Splash. Sure, he had the distinction of coming out in post- America, meaning he was a necessary part of any respectable Beanie Baby collection, but now that we’ve all see , we know that Splash was suffering. Like, sure he can do the 100-yard dash, but does he want to? Is that a victory jump he’s doing, or an attempt to escape to the sea and search for his mother, who he was stolen from at birth? Splash belongs in the ocean with the other orcas, not at the bottom of your toy chest trying to make small talk with a giraffe. And with all that we now know about the horrible conditions in which Orcas are kept, this photo is extremely disturbing:

Still cute, tho.

3. Flash The Dolphin (Has visited Silly Billy’s)

I honestly cant imagine a better time in the little girl-dolphin relationship than the early ’90s. We’ve got Lisa Frank to thank for that. As a 6-year-old, there were like two acceptable favourite animals, and dolphin was definitely one of them. Dolphins had an amazing PR campaign to market themselves as cute, friendly animals, when in reality they’re just really horny. Dolphins are some of the only animals besides humans and bonobos that have sex for pleasure, which raises some serious questions about how this dolphin got the name Flash. Like, I have a feeling its not related to speed. Still, no true child of the ’90’s would have made Flash a top priority for their collection, and her ability to be considered respectable while being a closet freak is something we should all admire.

2. Mystic The Unicorn (Has visited Silly Billy’s)

Mystic the unicorn was the central figure in most little girls Beanie Baby collections. Like, if you did not have Mystic, you def can’t sit with us. Mystic is also one of the only OG Beanie Babies that is not a real animal (later they’d add like, ghosts and such, but much like the Pokemon beyond 150, we do not recognize them as legitimate). There’s really not much else to say about Mystic except that she’s a unicorn, she’s gorgeous, and after about two weeks of hanging out in the bottom of your backpack her white coat would turn a sort of smudge-y grey and your mom would have to run her through the wash, at which point her horn would kind of never be the same. Bummer!!

1. Princess Diana

 (Has not visited Silly Billy’s)

There is no question in any one’s mind that the Princess Diana Beanie Baby was basically the Lumee case of Beanie Babies. She was luxury, special edition, and only your friend with rich parents and serious Beanie Baby collections had her. She was so special that, despite being a children’s toy, she was not to be played with. Nope. As soon as you bought this priceless heirloom, your parents would stick her in one of those clear plastic Beanie Baby boxes and put her on a high shelf so no one dare fuck with her. And unlike literally every other member of the Beanie Baby family, she was actually a good investment. A couple in the UK sold their mint condition Diana for $100,000, meaning that a purple bear your parents probably sold at a yard sale in 2001 could have actually paid for your college. I guess I finally understand what that Beanie Baby divorce couple was actually talking about.

Pokémon (ポケモン Pokemon?, /ˈpoʊkeɪˌmɒn/ or /ˈpoʊkᵻˌmɒn/ – poh-kay-mon or poh-ki-mon) is a media franchise managed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese consortium between Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures. The franchise copyright is shared by all three companies, but Nintendo is the sole owner of the trademark. The franchise was created by Satoshi Tajiri in 1995, and is centered on fictional creatures called “Pokémon”, which humans, known as Pokémon Trainers, catch and train to battle each other for sport.

The franchise began as a pair of video games for the original Game Boy, developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo. The franchise now spans video games, trading card games, animated television shows and movies, comic books, and toys. Pokémon is the second-most successful and lucrative video game-based media franchise in the world, behind only Nintendo’s Mario franchise.

Cumulative sales of the video games (including home console games, such as Hey You, Pikachu! for the Nintendo 64) have reached more than 279 million copies. In November 2005, 4Kids Entertainment, which had managed the non-game related licensing of Pokémon, announced that it had agreed not to renew the Pokémon representation agreement. The Pokémon Company International (formerly Pokémon USA Inc.), a subsidiary of Japan’s Pokémon Co., oversees all Pokémon licensing outside of Asia.[8] As of May 2016, the Pokémon franchise has grossed revenues of ¥4.8 trillion worldwide[9] (equivalent to US$46.2 billion).

Buckle Your Rubber Band Seat Belt And Ride This Hot Wheels Racetrack

Who says Hot Wheels are just for kids?

A dizzying video shows what it’s like to take a spin inside one of the speeding matchbox-sized Hot Wheels cars as it races along a 200-foot track.

The footage, posted to YouTube Monday, captures the toy car embarking on this “road trip,” which includes a 360-degree loop, jump and dive into a swimming pool.

The video was filmed with a GoPro camera that was mounted on top of a modified 2014 Paradox race car, according to 5MadMovieMakers, which uploaded the video and shared photos on Facebook.

The two-minute video wasn’t shot at one time — or in one location — but was instead edited together.

Other videos produced by the tiny-track videographers include a Lego roller coaster and a pinball marble track.

Silly Billy’s Toy Shop stocks both Hot Wheels and Matchbox vehicles.

Hot Wheels is a brand of 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It was the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997 when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox. Many automobile manufacturers have licensed Hot Wheels to make scale models of their cars, allowing the use of original design blueprints and detailing. Although Hot Wheels were originally intended for children and young adults, they have become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition models are now made available.
Hot WheelsMatchbox is a popular toy brand which was introduced by Lesney Products in 1953, and is now owned by Mattel, Inc. The brand was named as the original die-cast Matchbox toys, which were sold in boxes similar in style and size to those in which matches were sold. Subsequently, the brand would encompass a broad range of toys including larger scale die-cast models and various non die-cast lines such as plastic model kits and action figures.

During the 1980s, Matchbox started to switch to the more conventional plastic and cardboard “blister packs”, that were used by other die cast toy brands such as Hot Wheels. The box style packaging was re-introduced for the collectors’ market in recent years. Particularly with the release of the “35th Anniversary of Superfast” series in 2004.

Rogue One

Star Wars Rogue One

Rogue One is the new Star Wars Film due to be released for Christmas 2016. As ever the Lego company are releasing new products for this upcoming Star Wars Movie and they will be with us here at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop in October 2016
[iframe src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/frdj1zb9sMY” width=”100%” height=”500″]

Silly Billy’s Toy Shop, the best Independent Toy Retailer in Yorkshire, has Lego Star Wars in stock now, including Lego Buildable figures at only ten pounds.
Star Wars Buildable Figures

Rogue One, A Star Wars Story is due for release in UK on December the 16th according to IMDB coincidentally my eldest son’s birthday.

As well as having Lego Star Wars buildable figures in stock we also have the following Lego Star Wars sets in limited quantities.

Other recent Lego news includes a revelation on BBC Radio 4 that by 2020 the amount of minifigures on planet earth will be greater than the amount of human beings, this shock fact after some research on the internet came from an article written in 2013 that says “Since their introduction in 1978, Lego’s Minifigs have, um, reproduced at a rapid rate. In fact, the toy maker has been making the little fellas at such a pace that they’ll outnumber humans by 2019.

As of 2006, there were 4 billion Minifigs in the world; projecting forward both human and Lego population growth suggests that tiny plastic men will outnumber us by 2019. Imagine that: a world where there are more Minifigs than fellow homosapiens.”
Original Source

As we all know the human population has been expanding globally at a terrific rate and so now it seems the same is true for Lego Minifigures ! Here at Silly Billy’s we have the latest Series 16, Lego Minifigures in stock NOW

Pokemon Steam Siege

Pokemon Steam Siege

It is unsurprising that Pokemon Cards are still incredibly popular after the recent release of Pokemon Go has further reinforced the popularity of this major brand and also their cutting edge use of Technology in product development and implementation.

Silly Billy’s has stocked Pokemon Cards for a very long time, in fact they were first released in 1996 in Japan and Silly Billy’s started trading 1997, with America taking up the Pokémon Trading Card Frenzy in 1998 and release to Europe shortly afterwards Silly Billy’s was one of the First Retailers to stock Pokemon Cards right back in the beginning of Pokemon time.
A Pokémon Trading Card Game was developed by Media Factory with its own set of rules. The first set of cards was released on October 20, 1996, containing 102 cards, and became very popular.
The Trading Card Game was also introduced to North America on January 9, 1999 by Wizards of the Coast. The Electric Tale of Pikachu became the first Pokémon manga to be translated to English when VIZ Media started publishing it on September 28, 1999.

PokemonGO

PokemonGO

PokemonGO

PokemonGO

What can we say? PokemonGo as one of the first augmented reality games is pretty amazing. There is a lot  you can do within the PokemonGo game and many ways in which you can get involved.
On the plus side it encourages people to go out and walk, run or cycle and catch #PokemonGO where ever they may be. It’s interesting that Niantic have released the game for free and also free of ADs, this is a plus really. Although it has As I have some background knowledge in internet and application development I really do feel Pokemon GO is a very powerful app.
On the down side there have been stories of people falling off of cliffs and the like, which isn’t great.

Pokemon cards have been amazingly popular here at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop and we are the greatest retailer of Pokemon Cards in Hebden Bridge. We would obviously be very grateful if you could shop for your cards here as we are raising our own visibility post the flooding of Boxing Day.
The latest series “Fates Collide” has been one of the most popular collectors series yet.
PokemonGo - Fates CollideWe have plenty of card booster packs here at Silly Billy’s so if you are looking for Pokemon Cards then come down to Silly Billy’s Toy Shop today

The author has installed Pokemon GO on his phone and has played it, although as I am no gamer I did not particularly get into the game itself, though I am interested in other people’s experiences.

Packhorse Bridge

The Packhorse Bridge c1450

My daughter caught a Pokemon in Silly Billy’s Toy Shop the other day and I have applied to Niantic to make Silly Billy’s a PokeStop. There was also PokeGym on the Packhorse Bridge, close to our shop.

Overall I would say the development and release of PokemonGo is significant and heralds a new way of gaming incorporating augmented reality.
