Betty Corgi – The Queen’s Jubilee Jellycat!

Tuesday, May 17th, 2022

Hi everyone!

Recently we’ve been treated to a ton of new Jellycats including the new Rose Dragon, lovably chonky Ricky Rain Frog and the adorable Fun-Guy Robbie.

There are also three new birds to join the Birdling range: Birdling Blue Jay, Birdling Mallard and Birdling Pigeon.

But the one that surprised everyone was the adorable new Betty Corgi!

Betty quietly became available, which came as a shock to everyone!

She is a brand new corgi Jellycat released in time for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. She isn’t named after any of the Queen’s corgis but I’m pretty certain she is named after the Queen herself (Betty being short for Elizabeth).

She has short legs with white feet, a long body and a tiny, caramel-coloured tail.

Betty is quite possibly one of the cutest Jellycat dogs I’ve seen!

Will you be celebrating the Jubilee? Do you have Betty in your collection? Leave a comment below!

What is my Jellycat worth?

Tuesday, November 30th, 2021

UPDATED FOR WINTER 2021

If you’ve made it here, there’s a good chance that you’re wanting to find out the value of a Jellycat plush you have. To try and help out, I’ve written this handy guide.

It can be quite difficult to find out the price of an untagged Jellycat, especially if it’s a vintage one that isn’t very well known. This guide is best for those who either have a tagged Jellycat or if you definitely know the name of it.

If you know the name of the Jellycat you want to price, then proceed to read the next steps in this guide.

I’ve found that the best place to price a Jellycat is on eBay. I will base this guide on the UK market, but if you are based in the USA, the same procedures can be used using eBay.com.

To start, head over to eBay. You will find the following page, pictured below.

eBayWhen the page has loaded, go to the search bar, entitled “Search for anything”, and type the name of the  Jellycat you want to price. For example, I will search for a “Sherbet Bashful Bunny” (highlighted in red).

 

You should find a page that looks a little bit like the one pictured below.

 

This won’t show you the value as such, only the price that people have listed for. A seller can list whatever price they want for anything, but the value is only as much as a buyer is willing to pay for that item. To get the true value, you will want to filter the results so you only see sold items.

Scroll down the page until you see a section on the left hand side titled Show Only. Tick the checkbox called Sold items. This will also automatically select Completed items. This is no problem as we want to see the completed sales (sales that were actually paid for).

 

When the page has loaded with your filtered results, you will want to filter the results further by sorting from the lowest price. Click on the drop-down box that currently says Ended recently and change it to Lowest price + P&P.

Below are some of the results we get back (as of 30th November 2021).

As you can see, they start at just over £47.

And a few more…

 

 

A lot depends on the size and condition of the Jellycat. For example, a medium Sherbet Bashful Bunny ranges from about £50 up to about £90. The £50 medium Sherbet bunny was in poor condition with no tags and the £90 bunny was BNWT (Brand New With Tags).

The best thing to do is to search for your Jellycat and using the guide above, filter the results, then find a Jellycat that most accurately fits with the condition of the one you are trying to price.

I hope you find this guide helpful in trying to find the value of your Jellycat/Bashful Bunnies.

My favourite Jellycats of 2021!

Sunday, November 21st, 2021

 

 

Hi everyone!

Sorry its been a while since my last post. Things have been pretty around here lately.

I’ve been so excited by the latest releases, especially since there have been so many cats included this time! Anyone that knows me, will know that I am a huge fan of cats and love to collect Jellycat kitties!

There are also a few more that I am super excited about and would love to get hold of. I’ll list a few of my favourites below.

1. Fungi Forager Squirrel

Meet Fungi Forager Squirrel.

This little guy is soooo adorable! A squirrel carrying his own personal mushroom umbrella? Who on earth would have thought of that?!

That brings me to my next favourite…

2. Fungi Forager Bunny

Jellycat also released a Fungi Forager Bunny to go with his squirrel buddy.

For some reason, these two little forest critters remind me of a Jim Henson creation, like they could have been in Labyrinth.

3. Amore Cat Black

Next up is Amore Cat Black.

This chonky black cat it too freaking cute for words! I love his sleepy expression!

There was also an Amore Cat Cream released at the same time.

4. Bewitching Cat

Bewitching Cat kind of looks like Casper Cat’s cousin with less fur and black eyes instead of green. He looks very sweet and very huggable.

And finally…

5. Munchkin Cat

From what I’ve heard, Munchkin Cat doesn’t look as appealing the stock image above, but I want her anyway.

She was released alongside her dog counterpart, Munchkin Pup.

As you can see, many of my favourites are cats, but I’d love to hear your favourite releases from this year. Please feel free to leave a comment below and let us know!

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!
