    Exclamation Merry Christmas from TippyBlue and D23!

    Ok, so I ended up looking at the D23 website after being led there by some other thing I was looking at...that always happens, one thing leads to another. Ahem...anyway, D23 has created a Christmas Advent calendar, and each day starting from December 1st, to the 25th, they have a different artist from various departments within the company, create some holiday artwork to share. Well, imagine my surprise when one of them happens to feature TippyBlue from Tokyo DisneySEA, and one of Duffy's friends!



    The artist is Jason Grandt, who is a concept designer for Walt Disney Imagineering. I'm guessing he must like TippyBlue to create this fantastic holiday greeting. I think it's so cute...and if he can basically draw TippyBlue the way he's supposed to...what's Monty Maldovan's excuse? Oh, that was mean, but...

    Along with the Christmas greeting from TippyBlue, we have another D23 Holiday Greeting, this time from Mickey & Duffy!



    As it was written on the drawing by Monty Maldovan: "Have a Huggable Holiday!"

    These are BOTH ADORABLE!!! Proof that it's not Disney's artists who are holding back quality Duffy! Support the artists by talking about their work and by not buying subpar merchandise. If it low quality doesn't sell, the quality will improve. They can definitely do it if they choose to, but the record shows they won't choose to unless they have to.

    Re: Merry Christmas from TippyBlue and D23!

    Ok that drawing by Monty is AMAZING! He's basically the head of Duffy's "team" here in the States and he really does love that little bear. He gets as frustrated as we do when his designs get "dumbed down". But as it's been stated before, in Japan they don't "age grade" their plush like the do in the States. Plus in Japan, people aren't as sue happy as they are here, so if their kid manages to yank off Duffy's nose or eye, the proceeds to shove it down their throat and chokes, mom and dad aren't quick to call Mr. Lawyerpants like they would here.

    That's true Aimster. Shows how bad the states are when it comes to being sue happy. Not the creators faults that there child ripped it apart and ate it. *shakes head* Makes me sad. I really would like to see Duffy be with all ages and not just faced towards the younger set in the states. I absolutely love this bear and I'm 22 years old.

    I'm pushing 40 and I love this little fluffball. I've always loved stuffed animals and always took good care of mine even as a toddler. My parents never had to throw my toys away because I broke them... they'd have to because I'd wear them out.
