Beanlings are tiny creatures. They have vaguely feline type faces with fluffy cheeks and short snouts. Their bodies are bean-like in shape with stumpy arms. Their hands are like paws, but can have a small thumb. They can have between 3-5 digits. See Basic Anatomy guide here.
All Beanlings have a droplet of dew caught in each of their ears. It keeps them hydrated and happy. If their dew dries out they can no longer float or use magic and must either be placed in a source of water or sleep to regenerate it.
- Clear - Clear dew is the standard for all beanlings and flowerlings. The dew present in the ears is circular in shape and clear in color, thought it can be depicted as a light shade of blue. See dew - Clear guide here.
Beanlings have animal-like ears. They can come on a variety of sizes from tiny to extra large. These ears are real and have a slightly unusual shape as they have a special spot designed for their dew to sit.
- Bunny - Bunny ears are tall and thin. They are generally oval in shape. They stand up straight. See Ears - Bunny guide here.
- Kitty - Kitty ears are triangular in shape. They can have tuffs of fur at the base and at the ear tip. See Ears - Kitty guide here.
- Round - These ears are round in shape, they are based on mouse ears. See Ears - Round guide here.
- Floppy - These ears are pointed downwards and can be stiff or soft. They can have a fluffy edge or be smooth. See Ears - Floppy guide here.
- Fluffy - These ears have an extra fluffy edge. See Ears - Fluffy guide here.
- Wing - Wing ears are made from feathers and are shaped like a birds wing. See Ears - Wing guide here.

- Other - Other ear designs fall under this category. They can be any style you desire as long as you give Toffee-Tama a heads up on your idea. Known other ears include: Liquid, Star, Lacewing, none. Here are some examples of other ears.
These feelers are soft and feathery in texture. They are used to detect emotions. Beanlings often are seen snuggling creatures and rubbing their feelers on them in order to better understand what they are feeling. These are unrelated to the wings in terms of style!
- Pom - Pom is small and roundish in shape. It does not grow very big. See Feelers - Pom guide here.
- Moth - Moth is a teardrop shaped feeler. They tend to be sleek, though can be fluffy and can grow very large. See Feelers - Moth guide here.

- Winglet - Fairy wings sprout from the forehead, they are generally small and delicate though can grow quite large. See Feelers - Winglet guide here.
- Other - Other feeler designs fall under this category. They can be any style you desire as long as you give Toffee-Tama a heads up on your idea. Known other feelers include: Horns, Unihorn, disk, singular moth, none. Here are some examples of other feelers.
Beanlings have wings attached to their lower back, the size can vary from tiny to extra large. They are non functioning as beanlings use magic to float. They are however, similar to fish fins and can help keep the beanling steady and balanced. While they float a beanlings movement is very similar in style to that of a fish swimming.
- Dragonfly - These wings are long and thin, they can be oval or diamond in shape. See Wings - Dragonfly guide here.
- Bubble - Bubble wings are round. See Wings - Bubble guide here.

- Ribbon - The wings are made out of ribbon. They are similar in style to a beanlings tail, however the design is not limited. See Wings - Ribbon guide here.
- Bat - These wings have finger like appendages connected by a thin membrane layer. See Wings - Bat guide here.
- Fish - Fish wings are spines connected by webbing. They can look like any fin seen on a fish. See Wings - Fish guide here.

- Other - Other wing designs fall under this category. They can be any style you desire as long as you give Toffee-Tama a heads up on your idea. Known other wings include: liquid, galaxy, stars, skeletal, none. Here are some examples of other wings.
Beanlings have tails. Every beanling has one as they are the wish from which they are born. The tail is made from paper or ribbon and has the wish inscribed upon it in magical script (can be scribble-like, or actual writing). They come in a variety of lengths as their wish can be big or small! The tail naturally tends to curl up as it acts kind of like a protective shield for their stumpy bean sprout body, though it can flow in any direction as desired at will. They are by default plain white with only the writing decorating the paper. See here for Tail guide.
