Our kids have joined in with an Australian/NewZealand craze of collecting "Beanie Kids"
They are essentially all small bean filled bears that are dressed differently, some as animals, some as dinosaurs, some as babies.
They are reasonably affordable at $10/£4 each. Generally they have to save about 3 weeks pocket money or wait until they get some birthday money. Here is their combined collection.
The local Beanie Kid shop had a special promotional day today with a visit from the Beanie Master.
Sian and Gareth were happy to pose for a photo with him but Rhiannonn couldn't be persuaded or bribed to go anywhere near him!
