Special Edition Ohm Beads Hug Me 2 (BBQ) Preview

This Ohm Beads blog brings a complete preview of the upcoming Ohm Beads Hug Me 2 for June 2018.

During the Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash on the Lake, news was revealed that an Ohm Beads Hug Me 2 was on the horizon. Hug Me 2 was set to be part of the Ohm Beads BBQ program which appears to be revisiting older and quite iconic designs but in much larger versions.

With new collectors constantly discovering the brand, it can be disheartening to fall in love with a long retired bead or charm. The solution isn’t simply to re-release these designs as it undermines the entire concept of limited editions but creating something in a similar vibe does seem to be a potential way forwards. This is precisely what Ohm have been experimenting with.

Hug Me was originally released for Father’s Day 2016 so it’s now two years old. As part of the new designs launching on June the 5th comes Hug Me 2 and ohhh is he cute!

The Ohm Beads Hug Me 2 will retail at $333 and though he’s large, he’s not quite the size of Big Luna and does seem to work on the wrist, provided you like big beads. He comes packaged in a plush teddy bear. Just like the Ohm Beads Big Luna, this is a special edition or custom order piece. That means unless your retailer specifically holds stocks, you can expect upto five weeks between placing your order and delivery. Wondering why the sewing kit is included? Rumour has it the bead will be inside of the teddy. Cut him open and sew him back up, (it’s Ohm Beads style for sure!) He has articulating details.

Ohm Beads Hug Me 2 Pre-Ordering

Pre-orders begin for Hug Me 2 today with a release date of June the 5th. Do remember however these may not ship immediately (depending upon whether retailers ordered them or not.)

Ohm Beads Hug Me 2 Summary

I’ve said many a time that I’m not a hearts and flowers kinda girl. Teddy bears though are a very different matter. I’ve always had huge appreciation for Ohm’s emotive designs such as Hug Me and Love Hurts. Hug Me 2 is no exception. I adored the design when I first saw it and the packaging has just increased that enthusiasm. I am lucky enough to have the Big Luna (and many of you who attended Bead Bash on the Lake noticed I wore it all weekend.) Though I appreciate it’s too large for some, I actually really like the scale as soon as I found a way to wear it that worked for me. Hug Me 2 isn’t quite as large I don’t think but he is easily big enough to make an amazing pendant, where some charms are just too small.

Do remember for any of you temped, the Ohm Beads Dirty Moon Me Promotion begins on June the 7th. Spends of $250 or more will qualify you for a free Dirty Moon Me. With that in mind ordering Hug Me 2 instantly qualifies you.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads Hug Me 2? Are you coveting this new design? Hit the comments and let me know!

    Hi Victoria. I actually saw this bead in Hong Kong during an Ohm event and it’s really cute. You can either wear it on the necklace or on the bracelet. The size is not as big as the big Luna but I like it so much 😍❀️

      Yes there’s been a few live images floating around and that’s why I mentioned in the article that he’s not as large as Big Luna πŸ™‚ He’s very cute for sure πŸ™‚

  2. Valerie Bronson

    Any idea on the edition size ? Also, to be clear even though I purchased Hug Me 3 tonight , I am automatically qualified to receive a free moon me ?

    • endangeredtrolls

      BBQ beads are not limited by quantity and please note the Dirty Moon Me promotion doesn’t begin until June the 7th. The dates are in the article πŸ™‚

      • Frederica

        Please what do you mean by BBQ beads ? Thanks

        • Mary

          According to the Ohm catalog. BBQ means Big Beads each Quarter.

    I love him!!! So adorable; saw him at Bead Bash.

    • endangeredtrolls

      He is very cute πŸ˜€

  4. Pippa

    Okay, saw him at Bead Bash and thought he was adorable πŸ™‚
    Didn’t know about the packaging though. Brilliant and so cute – thank you, Ohm!!!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Isn’t it though? He’s soo cute!

  5. Kasia

    He looks too cute! I am hoping he looks more cute than scary in real lifeπŸ™‚

    • endangeredtrolls

      He’s not scary! He’s just battered by life like the rest of us πŸ™

  6. Lola

    Lol, I don’t know about “cute,” he gives me that undead-teddy-in-the-toy-box vibe. I’m sure Chuckie was cute too, until he wasn’t. The actual teddy bear is adorable tho. Ohm does fab packaging.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Nooo he’s not. He’s just been hugged and squeezed and wounded and hugged again. He’s well traveled and he’s hurt and he’s imperfect. That’s what makes him beautiful πŸ™‚

      Chuckie was kill kill kill. Hug Me is sorry he’s not flawless anymore but hopes people will see past it

      • Lola

        Aw!!!! But still, toy box horror. πŸ˜€

        What was the killer bunny in Python? I’ll have to Google.

        Google reminds me, The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog. LOL. I’d buy a dozen of that bead.

      • Kasia

        So true! I was gifted a teddy by a friend when I was 3. He has been with me through thick and thin. His eye fell out a few times, he has been mended by thread and needle, basically has no fluff because of all the love he had and he is still my #1. I still kiss him hello and goodbye when I visit my family home❀️

        • endangeredtrolls

          You know they’re well loved when they go bald <3

          But yes, you got my sentiments exactly! πŸ˜€

    I received my Hug Me 2.0 today. I am pleased with the purchase, but not overjoyed. If worn on a bracelet, the poor little guy has a big hole on the top of his head. Also, he’s much larger than expected and really dwarfs most other beads. I will put him on a bracelet by himself, flanked with two glass beads.

    I think he would look best as a pendant, especially because of his dangling moveable leg. I might wear him like that occasionally too.

    All of that said, I wish I had bought a preowned 1.0 instead. I’m new to Ohm and missed my chance to buy a new one.

    Love this blog. It’s a great resource.
