August 2007 Marie Osmond Dolls (MOD) Shipping Delayed

We hope that you are keeping cool during this blistering hot summer. . . this week is back-to-school time in most parts of the country. And with the upcoming fall, we have both the Halloween and Christmas holidays to look forward to!

Just to let all of you Marie Osmond doll (MOD) fans know, Charisma Brands, the distributor of Marie's dolls has recently moved. Unfortunately, the move did not go as smoothly as planned.

Please read what Charisma has to say about it:

"We are very aware of the late arrival of the August show dolls and we are truly sorry for the delays. We did not expect to have this kind of delay during our recent move. We have received 3 containers into the LA distribution center and are now shipping the dolls. "

For those of you waiting who have specially requested a doll from Beacon's Glow Collectibles, and have not heard from us, thank you very much for your patience. We will notify you immediately upon their arrival.

Steiff Cockerel 1892 by Steiff (EAN 411519)

Steiff Cockerel 1892 by Steiff (EAN 411519) has just recently arrived at Beacon's Glow Collectibles.

This magnificant Steiff cockerel rooster is quite stunning. This is a very special replica that dates back to the time with Steiff's founder, Margarete Steiff was still making toys with her own hands. (For those of you that didn't know, Margarete's first creations were felt elephants). She was quite a woman, and a true female entrepreneur for her time.

This magnificant rooster is made from 35 separate layers of felt in 12 different colors. Since the legendary "Button in Ear" had not yet been introduced in 1892, this Cockerel 1892 by Steiff (EAN 411519) is given the first official button with an elephant logo. He comes from a limited edition of 1000 pieces worldwide.

We are quite pleased to get the opportunity to carry this wonderful Steiff piece. Pleade don't hesitate to contact us if you would like any additional information on this Steiff Cockerel 1892 by Steiff.

Boyds Bear Collection Category Reorganized

Our Boyd's Bear Collection Category of inventory has been reorganized. We were finding that in trying to make each new line of Boyd's Plush (e.g., Classic Cottage, Old Glory, Country Patchwork) a separate category, our main subcategory was getting way too large. We still continue to keep many of the same distinct Boyd's Subcategories on the site but have reorganized both the plush and resin lines.

So, to help with this, we have created two new categories that are a catch-all for all plush and resin lines. These new subcategories are:

  1. Boyds Plush

  2. Boyds Resin Figurines

The name of each Boyd's Plush line is listed at the front of the item's name so that they remained grouped together as much as possible.

As always, it makes it quite easy to use the search available on the site to find that special Boyds Bear that you are looking for.

Please let us know if this helps to simplify looking around in the Boyd's Bear Category of our site. As always, your comments are very welcome.

"Looking for and enjoying beauty is a way to nourish the soul. The universe is in the habit of making beauty. There are flowers and songs, snowflakes and smiles, acts of great courage, laughter between friends, a job well done, the smell of fresh-baked bread. Beauty is everywhere. " - Matthew Fox
