More Bashful animals added!

Wednesday, May 12th, 2021

Hi guys!

Hope you have had a lovely weekend!

I’ve been making some progress on adding more Bashful animals to the database, but a couple stood out to me that I would LOVE in my collection…

One of these is the Bashful Donkey.

He just looks so cute! He kind of reminds me a little of Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh, especially now his colour has changed from the original light grey colour to the lavender colour he is now.

The next animal Bashful I would love, but don’t have yet, is Bashful Calf.

I am pleased that Jellycat have gone with a spotty calf as I love how every pattern is unique. And the suede effect tassels on his tail are too cute!

There is also a brown Bashful Cow, which is also very cute.

I am currently planning out my next Jellycat purchase, but I’m totally undecided which to go for at the moment so I’m hanging on for the moment until I’ve made up my mind.

Dressed Bashful Bunnies section complete!

Thursday, May 6th, 2021

Hi guys!

I’m happy to say that I have completed the Dressed Bashful Bunnies section of the website!

I have decided to give them their own category, as well as include them in the main Bashful Bunnies area to make it easier to find them.

Now I’ve completed the Special Edition Bunnies, “normal” Bashful Bunnies and Clothed Bunnies areas of the database, I am now going to be mainly focusing on the animal Bashfuls next, but if there is anything specific that you want me to add, please feel free to contact me and I will try and add it to the website for you. I am aiming to try and make Jelly Collector the biggest checklist of Jellycats for collectors to use to keep track of their personal collection, so it makes sense to add any that you own that are missing from the site.

At this current moment, I still have no Jellymail arriving (nooo!). I have bought way too many lately, so I need a short break from buying full price Jellies. However, I did go Jelly-hunting at the weekend in the local charity shops and for bargains in TK Maxx. Sadly, none of them had any Jellies and TK Maxx was bare. Fingers crossed I’ll have better luck next time!

Enjoy the rest of the week and have a fab weekend!

Checklist of Bashful Bunnies complete!

Thursday, April 29th, 2021

Hi guys!

I have some important news for you…the “normal” Bashful Bunnies section of the database is now complete! You can now track your bunny collection using our full list of Bashful Bunnies, and if you’re looking for a particular colour of bunny, you can filter the results to only include, for example, all the blue bunnies.

If I have missed any out, please let me know and I’ll add them in for you.

I still have to add the outfit-wearing bunnies, so that is my next task. I am always happy to add requests to help you with tracking your collection, so if there are any you would like to see on the database, please get in touch!

At this current moment, I don’t have any Jellymail on the way (booo!), although I do have a few on my wishlist, including Paprika Dragon, Olive Dragon and for some reason, I have decided I NEED a Geek Cat in my life.

Have fun using our checklist for your Bashful Bunny collection, and the “dressed bunnies” will be added shortly.

I couldn’t resist…

Wednesday, April 21st, 2021

Hi guys!

If you’ve read my last post, I have been currently collecting dragon Jellycats. I bought a Bashful Dragon in a small and medium size. I also have a Little Sage Dragon and a Little Dexter Dragon.

Don’t they all look so cute pictured together?

I also mentioned before that I was sooo tempted by a Lallagie Dragon, but was trying to resist. Well…I caved and bought him. I’m so glad I did, as he’s so lovely and soft!

He is a lovely colour and these pictures don’t really do him justice. I’d say he’s a sort of minty-green/silver colour. I ADORE his little horns and tiny ears!

His legs are weighted with pellets, making them a little bit floppy. On his back, he has minty green wings and a long tail. His fur has a slightly “wavy” texture but very soft, and his belly is a lot smoother with horizontal stitching across it for detail.

He looks lovely alongside my Bashful Dragons and I’m so glad I bought him. He is taller than my medium Bashful Dragon, measuring about 39cm tall.

Latest news and Jellymail Update

Tuesday, April 13th, 2021

Hi guys!

It’s a lovely sunny day here today at Jelly Collector HQ!

Today I’ve been trying to add more Bashful Bunnies to the database as I want to complete the list as soon as possible!

I have also received more Jellymail since my last post. I entered a raffle on Facebook and to my surprise, I won! I’m so happy as I never win anything! The prize was the gorgeous Whitney Chicken!

Whitney was actually bigger than I thought she’d be and she is sooo lovely and soft! I love her sleepy expression which gives her character.

Whitney arrived along with a couple of other Jellies I had ordered. These were a medium Cottontail bunny and a medium Bashful Dragon.

The Cottontail bunny was actually for my daughter and she loved him. Well, he is very soft and cuddly!

I have always wanted a Bashful Dragon as I thought he looked adorable!

I love his tiny horns and wings that look like there is no way he’d ever be able to use them to fly. It just all adds to his cuteness!

Although afterwards I felt like he needed a friend, so I got him a little buddy….a small Bashful Dragon!

How cute is this little guy?!

The two dragons now look complete….until I decide I need a huge dragon….

Along with the small dragon, I also ordered a small Peony bunny.

I loved the colour of the Peony bunny because it has a pink and white two-tone effect rather than a solid colour. She has recently retired as well, so I decided to get her while I still can before she sky-rockets in price like other retired bunnies.

Anyway, that’s all my Jellymail so far. I haven’t got any more order at the moment, but I’m currently loving dragons and I’ve got my eye on a Lallagie Dragon, so I’m trying to hard not to get him as I’ve bought way too many Jellies recently!

If anyone wants to share what Jellymail they’ve received recently, leave a comment below!

More Bunnies added to the database!

Tuesday, April 6th, 2021

Hi guys!

I hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter. It’s freeeeezing at the moment at Jelly Collector HQ! I’ve even seen a few flakes of snow falling!

Today, I’ve been busy (with some help from Crispin) adding more Bashful Bunnies to the Jelly Collector database.

We haven’t got many bunnies to add now. When I’ve finished, I’ll make a start on some of the other Jellycats. If you have a Jellycat that isn’t on the database yet, please get in touch and I’ll try and add it for you. I’m regularly adding new Jellies to the website, but I’m always happy to try and add in requests.

All the Special Edition bunnies are now on the website, as are the Winter/Christmas 2021 Jellycats for you to check out. Please let me know in the comments below if I’ve missed any.

My own collection of bunnies is growing, and I’ve got my eye on a few more that I want/need. I also have some Jellymail on the way, so I’ll post that up when it arrives.

For the moment, me and Crispin are taking a tea break. It’s a cold day and he needs to warm his claws up.

Hope you have a lovely day!

Jellymail Alert!

Tuesday, March 30th, 2021

Hi everyone!

Hope you’re all having a lovely day!

Today is a lovely, sunny Tuesday here, so I thought I’d show you my most recent Jellymail!

They actually arrived on Saturday morning (very fast delivery from JALS), but I’ve only just had the chance to post them up! Here they all are pictured below.

This time I ordered a Small Cassis Bunny, Small Cottontail Bunny, Small Twinkle Bunny, Small Dusky Blue Bunny, Small Amuseable Avocado and Little Sage Dragon. I’m absolutely in love with them all!

Especially that little avocado. He’s so cute, I could eat him!…(just kidding).

At the moment, I am only collecting the small bunnies for space reasons, but I’m thinking of getting at least one medium in the future (although, that could be dangerous as I may want to get more…)

I have now got all my little bunnies in a little tray I bought from B&M for £1. They look so cute together, just chilling out…

They seem to be multiplying by the day and I am running out of room in this tray now!

Also, Twinkle and Stardust are now reunited after being apart for so long…

Now I just need a Sparklet Bunny to go with them both when she’s released later this year…

Little Sage Dragon is so cute that I think he now needs Little Snow Dragon and Little Dexter (and later, Little Onyx Dragon) to keep him company!

I have more Jellymail arriving soon to join these guys, but I’ll leave that for another day.

I have also finished adding the Winter/Christmas 2021 Jellies to the database if you want to check them out. I am sooo looking forward to them, although I kind of wished they had released the information later as now we have to wait nearly half a year for them!

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday, and stay safe!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas…

Wednesday, March 24th, 2021

…and it’s only March!

Yesterday we heard some great news! The upcoming Christmas/Winter 2021 were announced!

I know what you’re thinking, we’ve only just got Christmas 2020 out of the way! But the new additions look amazing! I just wish they had waited a little closer to the time because now we have to wait sooo long for them!

I have started to add them to the database and I will hopefully finish by the end of the week, but you can see the Winter 2021 Jellycats I have already added here.

I just wanted to share a few of my favourites from the new collection.

Firstly, there is a whole new set of Winter Amuseables featuring a “Glisten” range. I can only describe these as using a pale aqua and white colour scheme which gives a frosty look.

Pictured below, is Amuseable Glisten Acorn from this range.

He looks like a frozen companion to the original Amuseable Acorn and is just lovely in his icy white acorn cap.

Nothing says “Christmas” quite like the Amuseable Poinsettia!

This little cutie is the perfect Christmas decoration for those who don’t want to have to go through the trouble of looking after a real poinsettia! The lovely red blooms will stay all year round!

A new Bashful Bunny will be joining them. Meet Bashful Sparklet Bunny!

Sparklet follows on from the starry-ear bunnies (like Stardust). She is a minty green coloured bunny, of the same colour palette as the Glisten range.

She will be available in a small and medium size.

I’m also really looking forward to the Onyx Dragon!

Onyx is very much like last Winter’s Snow Dragon, but is totally black in colour. He will fit in nicely alongside the Snow Dragon, Sage Dragon and Dexter.

He will be available in a little, medium (regular) and huge size.

Last but not least, is the range of Merry Mice.

There are four in the set: Merry Mouse, Merry Mouse Bedtime, Merry Mouse Present and Merry Mouse Wreath.

There are more Winter Jellies coming out this year, which I will add to the database shortly, but this is a selection of my favourites that I have added so far!

More Jellymail!

Friday, March 19th, 2021

I couldn’t resist…I ended up with more Jellycats!

I tried, I really did! But I ordered three more Jellies from JALS. I think I need help!

This time I didn’t order any bunnies. Instead, I managed to get hold of Sherri Sheep, Birdling Kingfisher and Tia Tiger (Ok, Tia is actually for my daughter which helps to justify my spending…a bit).

That being said, they are really cute and I’m so happy with my sheep and kingfisher. My daughter is also very happy with Tia (who she carries around everywhere by her super-long tail!) so that made it even more worthwhile.

I think my favourite, if I had to pick, is probably Sherri (pictured below).

This little sheep has the perfect look. Plus, she is sooo soft! I’ve been struggling to describe what she feels like, and there is only one thing I can think of – an owl chick. I know that is very specific and not everyone will have felt the downy feathers of a baby owl, but that is pretty much what she feels like.

Do you have any of these three Jellies? Or have you had some Jellymail that you want to share? Leave a comment below!

My latest Jellymail!

Thursday, March 11th, 2021

Hi everyone!

This post is a little bit delayed as I’ve only just had the chance to post it up, but I’m so excited to show you my latest Jellymail!

I received this lovely little collection from JALS (Just a Little Something) who are absolutely fantastic! I cannot recommend them highly enough!

From the back (left to right) is Small Forest, Small Cerise, Small Cream Blossom, Small Plum and Crispin Crab.

I decided to buy four bunnies and Crispin Crab (which started off as me telling myself I was only going to buy three bunnies and Crispin, but I couldn’t resist an extra bunny! Oops!).

I have now put them with some of my other small Jellies in a little tray that I picked up from B&M for the bargain price of £1 (for those of you outside of the UK, B&M is a store that sells all sorts of things from homeware to food for a reasonable price. You can seriously spend a fortune in there if you’re not careful).

Here they are all together with my Small Cinnamon, Small Saffron, Small Stardust and Small Bashful Black and White Kitten – not forgetting Flo, my Small Beige bunny.

I’m thinking that I need a red bunny next (I’m thinking maybe a Small Cassis?) to add to my little rainbow consortium.

I have also been busy today adding some more Bashful Bunnies into the database for you to track if you have them in your collection. As I said in my last post, I have also now finished the Special Edition Bashful Bunnies, which I have given their own section.

Are you expecting any Jellymail? Or have you just received some? Share with us in the comments section below!
