    You are making up insults, and putting the words into my mouth.
    I am not intending to insult anyone on this board. Unless Miley Cyrus or anyone from TDA is here. Perhaps the makers of the Duffy story as well, which I find a little holey.

    Re: How popular is Duffy at Disney California Adventure?

    Dusty has some interesting points. But, in order for people to want to buy the accessories for Duff, Disney will have to increase the quality of the clothes that they are producing for the bear. Most of the clothes so far have been poor quality/material.

    Oh, to add, it's all rather ironic, as Disney had to approve the designs/clothing that build a bear made when they started carrying Disney outfits for the Build a Bear critters. Now when DL starts carrying their own bear clothes, they created something inferior to what they approved for Build a Bear.

    No one's created patterns for Duffy, so one can make clothes the old-fashioned, but with tons more love, way?

    Patterns have been created. Most of the Japanese make their own outfits.

    It would depend on how many tears are included in each outfit.

    That sounds like a lot more fun. And I don't even sew. (I'm against putting my fingers that close to needles.)

    I'm still wondering where the outfits are that were announced a few months ago. I would love to pick up a few of those outfits, especially the Buzz Lightyear outfit.

    Phase 4 of the California Adventure expansion will include a Humboldt County section where Duffy bongs will be sold regularly.

    But will they have "personality"?

    Re: How popular is Duffy at Disney California Adventure?

    I was there in early November and had a conversation with a very nice CM about the Duffy introduction. She indicated that the early sales were in-line with expectations (and she was acutely aware of the Duffy skepticism on this board). If Duffy sales are truly meeting their quota, then maybe no one at DCA was expecting this to be a monster hit right off the bat.
    I agree seeing the job DCA has done with Duffy up to now. DCA has one shop and Meet & Greet location dedicated to Duffy right at the back of the park. To expect massive sales from an unknown Character so early on its just plain stupid. Especially in the weak way he's up to now been marketed to Guests. If Disney really do see Duffy as a failure like many on here are claiming he is after only three months. Why is no effort being made to raise his profile inside the park or at the Resort. Unless of course several in the company like what we are seeing on these boards don't like or understand the product and are hoping he falls flat on his face. I just wish the folk in Anaheim and Orlando would take note of the fantastic job the guys in Hong Kong have been doing on there Duffy launch. Duffy is heavily promoted in all the Christmas marketing including on its very own website. He can be found for Meet & Greets on Main Street at the front of the park. Duffy merchandise can be found in more then the one shop and the costumes are the same costumes that are sold in Tokyo which are a far higher standard to what we have in the States. And finally he's part of the Proccesion of Toys an entertainment programme that takes place all though the Christmas Event.

    I'm done posting here. I propose a separate Duffy forum like Malin suggested so we Duffy fans can discuss him without scrutiny from other people.
    At the moment MiceChat is not planning a Duffy subsection. But have requested that all general Duffy related discussion be moved over to the General Collecting Lounge. A couple of Duffy topics have already started over in this section. If we can get a good response with people posting comments it could always lead to something else down the line. So I invite everyone with an interest in Duffy to join us over there for discussion.
