I took some photos of a few of the Duffy tote bags for you so you could see the size comparison, and how well Duffy fits into two of them.
First we have the "Cape Cod Seasons" bag that I mentioned in one of the other threads. It's an older bag that is not for sale anymore at the parks, but they show up on Ebay occasionally and right now there's an auction for 2 of them for $50 each. This is a good price, since when it was for sale new it was 5,800 Yen, so this is actually a bargain. I'm not trying to push these bags on you guys, but I figured if anybody wanted a Duffy themed bag to carry him around in, this is perfect.

Ahem...anyway, Here are the pictures I took of my Duffy inside the bag.
This is Duffy standing up inside the bag. His head is the only thing that sticks out, but he's standing, so you can see just how big the bag is.
Here is Duffy sitting down inside the bag. Now you can see that he fits very well. Nothing is sticking out over the top, his head is just near the edge of the bag.
Here's another angle of him sitting in the bag.
There is a snap closure that keeps the bag sort of closed. I suppose it's so Duffy doesn't fall out or anything.
You can see here that there is still room for some of Duffy's accessories in the empty space. Also, my Duffy is wearing a costume here, so you can dress him and he still fits comfortably in the bag.
This is a closeup of the artwork on the front zipper pocket.
And here is the inside lining, with seasonal icons that represent Cape Cod.
There are 3 pockets inside, one is about the size of a water bottle, you could put something like that in there, and then there are two smaller ones on one side. Outside is the larger zipper pocket you can store things in as well. It has a removable shoulder strap, and carrying handles.
Ok, now here is the big canvas tote bag that should still be for sale at TDS. This one looks just like the little canvas totes, but is about twice the size. You can fit Duffy in here too, but it's not quite as big as the "Cape Cod Seasons" bag. Also, it only has one very small inside pocket.

There is still a little room inside to put accessories. Also, Duffy is still wearing a costume here, and he fits fairly well.
Looking down into the bag.
Now, these last two are comparison shots so that you can see what the smaller tote bags look like side-by-side with Duffy and the bigger bag.
That is last year's "Sweet Duffy" tote bag, so the lavender one for this year will be exactly the same size as the small bag. Duffy does not fit in these smaller ones at all. They are meant for carrying personal items or whatever you like.
Hopefully these pictures help to make decisions on which bags to get, and to answer questions about the size of the small seasonal canvas tote bags. The big, blue one is not seasonal, it's one of those "year round" items that should be for sale all the time, stock permitting, of course.
