Let’s talk about some of the upcoming things

I decided to try and also make a proper post for now with some of the official stuff coming out! We’ll start with Japan :) Afterall, that’s really where the main characterization of Duffy came from! Duffy is celebrating his 10-year anniversary this Summer with the “Journeys with Duffy: Your Friend Forever”:
The majority of the event will last into next year so there will be plenty of time to celebrate! There is also a special celebration that lasts for three days people who applied have a chance to attend. One of the really neat things at the event will be that you can purchase older Duffy costumes that have released over the years.

As for the stuff for everyone, many items are coming out! First of all, these 10-year shirts featuring Duffy’s new outfit for the event:
Each one is a different color with a different number on it and features Duffy in a unique pose. You can check out close-ups of all the Anniversary shirts here. I kind of wish they featured a different outfit for each year with the new special one only on 10 (And Duffy’s original outfit on 1). Maybe even having Shellie May or Gelatoni featured on the number they came out. I just feel they could’ve done a lot more with them. Regardless, they are only 1,800 Yen each so! Here’s one on:

My personal favorite item is the special Logbook for 1,200 Yen:
I just think it looks great. And I love these kind of “Adventurer Journal” things.

Of course, they couldn’t introduce a new outfit in art without actually giving Duffy it!:

And Shellie May received her own version as well!:
Both outfits are 3,800 Yen each (and are sold by themselves–Duffy and Shellie May are not included!). These are also the outfits Duffy and Shellie May will be wearing while out and about in Cape Cod so be sure to say Hi to them!

As for outside Japan, Duffy has been doing very well in Hong Kong. Just look at these cute Tiger outfits from the Hong Kong Main Street Gazette:
I’d recommend checking our their Facebook page to look at it all. It’s nice to see Duffy doing so well.

As for here in the states, Duffy has joined the Dark side this year in time for Star Wars Weekends:

And continues to receive many exclusive costumes.

Speaking of which, one of the things I noticed some people were still asking was about Shellie May making her way overseas. She was finally introduced as an Aulani Disney Resort exclusive for the time being. While not perfect, it’s better than nothing and she is definitely well-loved:
At the moment, there are no plans for her to make it over to the other Disney Parks and Resorts in the US, but maybe if she continues to do well we can see her soon!

Duffy recently joined her as well with his own special merchandise:
And he’s getting more this Summer!:

Shellie May also manages to continue getting new items as well such as this adorable dress:
(Photo from here)
I absolutely love the colors. Definitely something I’m tempted to pick up. At the very least, it makes me want to go to Aulani… Maybe I’ll make that a possible candidate for the honey moon…

UniBEARsity has also been getting some fun news in the last month! Firstly, we have these lovely spring outfits:
Can you guess the inspiration? One of my favorite minor details is the dog pattern on the 101 Dalmation one:

Finally, we also have a lovely Keychain version of a Peter Pan Outfit:
Maybe a line of Peter Pan bears will be next?

Speaking of the bears themselves, the newest one is based off Clarice!:
Her name is Apricot. I don’t think I’d get one myself, but she’s still pretty cute!

Hi everyone!

To my surprise, a lot of people missed the site so I decided to go ahead and try to start this website up. Originally, I thought maybe I’d just post on my main website from time to time–afterall, I’ve done an entry mentioning Duffy, Ahim, and UniBEARsity over there already.

But then I realized maybe it’d be best to try and get this site up again. I found a nice theme to work as I don’t really have time to remake a new one from scratch, but I hope you guys like it! I think it fits Duffy quite well.

I also managed to get the logo picture back up.

What would you guys like to see? Would you still like to see updates on news? Special item features? Let me know! I do think I’ll start incorporating Disney UniBEARsity into the site as well though due to some of the crossover between the to.

Anyway, I’m just going to quickly spotlight this one item from the Easter merchandise from this year:
Because it is absolutely adorable. I may need to see if I can get it at some point.

Quite a Predicament (Possible Closing)

If you have been following the facebook page, you may have learned that the server our website was on died. Unfortunately, the server host didn’t back-up anything as supposed to.

Which means we lost pretty much everything. I…don’t have time to fix everything, sadly. And thus, I’m at a loss for what to do. All images are broken (and I no longer have most of them)–I do not have the layout on hand anymore either so everything is essentially a mess.

So I apologize. I wish there was more I could do.

Another Pin and More Rumors

So first, another Duffy pin is out! It is one of 12 different pins part of a special Disney Set.

It’s nice to see Duffy paired with more general merchandise and it’s definitely quite cute.

Besides that, rumors are appearing again on Shellie May coming to the US Parks. While the one about her being here by Christmas didn’t work out, apparently merchandise with her (or at the very least, her) will be coming around Valentine’s Day while she’ll be meeting in the parks with Duffy later this year.

While I’d like this to happen, it IS just a rumor, so don’t get your hopes up too high just in case!

An Upcoming outfit? :)

Has your Duffy been sad that he has nothing to sleep in? Well, you’ll be happy about this outfit most likely coming out soon in the US Parks!

Posting on the Official Facebook, the base used is usually only for upcoming outfits :) So hopefully we’ll be seeing this in Disney Land and Disney World soon!

Duffy & Shellie May Amigurumi

For those who have no idea what amigurumi is, it’s essentially crochetted plushies :) Anyway, an awesome user on Etsy named OneLoveCottage recently made some of Duffy and Shellie May!

You can buy them here if you are interested! They come as a pair and cost 40 dollars. The user will not remake them so if you really want them, be sure to buy them before someone else does!

Edit: They are sold now! You can still go to the link to see more pictures though :)

More wonderful pictures from Paris Disney :)

Of course, thanks to our friends at Le Fan Club de Duffy <3 (Be sure to visit their site for more photos!) I have to say, it’s really awesome to see just what Paris Disney is doing to celebrate Duffy’s arrival. I do hope that keeps up and maybe encourages the US to embrace Duffy more as well.

If there’s one thing I really love, it’s these displays. I’d love to see them interpreted into like a little closet or display case you can buy for Duffy, similar to some of the stuff on sale at Build-a-Bear.

It’s nice to see some Christmas decorations still up :) or maybe that’s just me and my love of Christmas 😛 Regardless, Duffy looks adorable in the trees and that little hat and ribbon on the smaller Duffy are also very cute! I kind of want to get those for my own Duffy.

In the Hotel rooms! :) I think that’s a wonderful touch. For those of you who don’t want to maximize to read it…:
“Duffy now available at Disneyland Paris!
More than just a Teddy Bear,
Duffy was created from love and friendship especially for Mickey Mouse by Minnie Mouse.
Together they travel the world and on returning home they share all their magical memories with Minnie.
Come and discover Duffy soon in your Disney Hotel shop. You’re sure to love him as much as Mickey does!”

Also, some lovely photos from Disney Village:
Disney Village:

Disney Village also has gorgeous displays including the special OOAK Outfits for Duffy by various Fashion Designers.
As usual, the Plague:
This Christmas season, Duffy the Disney Bear, Mickey Mouse’s new friend, finally arrives in Disneyland Paris after travelling the world. To celebrate his arrival, top fashion designers have created one-of-a-kind outfits especially for Duffy. These unique designs suggest a number of influences including childhood memories, travel and dreams. You are invited to preview these outfits before they are used to raise funds in an outreach operation.

*Exhibition at the Disney Store of the Disney Village from November 14th, 2011 until January 8th, 2011.

It’s really neat those outfits and bears will be auctioned off for some kind of charity :) As for where they are holding these auctions… I wish I knew!

For more photos, well…. (more…)

New Pins, Duffy’s Popularity, & Sweet Duffy

So, firstly, we have new pins coming to the US parks :) Which will make pin collectors–or just people who love Duffy in general, quite happy:

While the one on the left should be in both parks, the pins on the right are most likely exclusive to Disney Land.

With Duffy showing up on more kinds of merchandise, it’s nice to see he’s also being shown off in other places too–like Peter Pan’s Flight:

(Photo thanks to MouseInfo)
It’s be really nice if these kind of things could continue.

Anyway, moving on, over in Japan, it is currently time for Sweet Duffy :) For those who aren’t sure what that is, Sweet Duffy is essentially the Valentine’s Day event in Tokyo Disney Sea and it features Duffy and Shellie May. There are a lot of gorgeous items this year (in which I will continue to regret that I sadly just can’t afford them–stupid US money being worthless):

Duffy’s and Shellie May’s outfits for the event. While I don’t really care for the color combination of blue/brown, both outfits are very nice and feature various different parts to them which can be matched with other outfits, including last year’s set.

Of course, if we have outfits, we also have little keychain and charm Duffy and Shellie May with their own mini versions:

And of course, there’s still plenty more to go… (more…)

New Cannery Co. Outfits + Be Magical Revisited!

For those of you with money to spare, the next edition of Canney Co. Outfits have been released.

These definitely have a lot more mixing and matching than the old sets, but are just about the same amount of things you would get from sets that are about half the price. Regardless, the quality is most likely even higher than usual on things and they are quite nice. I’m content with my overalls from Halloween, but I really love Shellie May’s pink cardigan, Duffy’s t-shirt (Plain white shirts are a pain to find), and both of their boots. It’s times like these where I wish they sold things separately and had package deals for cheaper. You will forever taunt me cardigan I can never get because I don’t have money :(

Moving on, for those of you who may have not been too fond of “Be Magical” for the outfits not exactly being too wizardy, well….

Yep, definitely much more wizard-y. I think I prefer the lighter colors of the original outfits (and the originals are probably softer), but these colors go well with them (And Shellie May’s matches the purple much better now unlike the kind of weirdness from the previous edition) and they definitely bring out more of the Sorcerer and Sorceress kind of theme than the other two. And for those of you who wanted more outfits for your tiny little Duffy, there is even a set of those for you too :3
