Beanie Boos won an award in 2011 for the Best Toy in the Plush category at the annual Learning Express convention in Florida.
In March of 2012, the very first sparkly eyed Boos were created and were made exclusive to the store Justice. They were Treasure The Unicorn and Sapphire The Zebra. From then on, Ty made beanie boos with sparkly eyes. Some of the older ones with solid eyes were redesigned for the new style.
Following this, they became available in Claire’s accessories, then McDonalds. To date there is over 300 Beanie Boos and they have their own special names and birthdays!
