Ty Beanie Boo mania is sweeping the UK, and we cannot resist – the oversized heads, enormous eyes, and bright well-developed characters are just too cute.
But did you know that every Beanie Boo has a birthday – perfect for celebrating together.
So, whose birthday can you celebrate this month? And why do they have birthdays?
Read on to find out all about it!
Why do Ty Beanie Boos have birthdays?
Older fans of Ty soft toys will remember the original Beanie Babies – floppy bears with just enough filling who took the world by storm in the 1990s.
One of the major selling points of the original Beanie Babies was their personalisation, which included a birthdate and birthday poem in each swingtag.
Fans of Ty loved the idea so much, Ty has simply kept the tradition going with their newer ranges, including the Beanie Boos.

Do Beanie Boo birthdays have a benefit?
Aside from being a genius marketing move, the idea of giving Ty soft toys a birthday has other benefits, including:
Helping make the toys much more popular – having things in common helps people bond, a factor that means that recipients are much more likely to connect with their Beanie Boo if they know they have a birthdate in common.
Making them ideal birthday gifts – giving a Beanie Boo as a birthday gift when both the soft toy and the recipient have the same birthdate makes the whole event much more special as they gain much more than a lovely plushie – they gain a Beanie Boo birthday twin!
Giving new collectors another way into the fandom – which Beanie Boo you share a birthday with is a popular topic of conversation within the Beanie Boo fandom, giving new members receiving their first Ty soft toy an easy way into discussions and forums.
