    Zhu Xiong is in music heaven!
    She’s blissfully listening to my almost 10,000 song library!
    And with a choice of music delivery systems, all with a panda theme, she feels right at home wandering from room to room with her ear buds on.

    “Hey, Shellie May, have you heard this one yet?”

    Now they’re sharing and bopping their heads in unison.
    Shellie May is teaching Zhu Xiong some dance moves because among other things, Shellie May is still the primo audiophile/rock star.

    Lo♥ey came in. “Here, let me tune it.” She picked out “Wake me Up” by Avicii Aloe Blacc. It’s #2 in Switzerland right now and was just released in June 2013. With a country voice, music that sounds like a blend of Irish step dancing and electronica, the other bears weren’t sure what to make of it. But Lo♥ey is obsessed with everything Swiss (although the song is by a Swedish house DJ), so if it’s #2 in Switzerland , you know she’s going to like it automatically.

        As you may know, Teddy Grahams are the number one snack of choice for Lil D and Duffette (as seen in a couple of my previous photos). Well today is a special day, because we're trying one of the new Teddy Graham flavors, strawberry banana!





        Opening the box...



        *dig dig dig*



        And the first taste...



        "Hmm. Doesn't taste much different from regular honey flavor to me. Not worth the hype."



        Duffette on the other hand, enjoys them more than Lil D. She appreciates the subtle essence of strawberry banana flavor that doesn't overpower the taste of graham (she's also been watching too many cooking competition shows!).



        Lil D says, "Why can't we ever get the chocolate ones?"

          Lil D is so stinking cute I can't stand it.

              Diznygrl,
              Lil D and Duffette should try the Graham sandwiches. The Banana Vanilla are spectacular. And, Lil D would like the Peanut Butter/Chocolate, if he likes PB.

                I was kind of stunned that this happened, so I feel like posting a picture. I got my Duffy to stand on his own two feet without a back support! I think the sneakers helped, but it was still an achievement.

                Also, has anyone noticed the flocking rubbing off of their Duffy's nose? I was wondering if that was a common thing or if it's just mine or something... I might end up just removing all of it and having him has a plain plastic nose since I have the feeling that if I were to restore it it would just rub off again...
                Chronically ill lurker will be lurking.
                Please contact me via PM or tumblr ask if you need to get ahold of me.

                  Yeah, sometimes even I can't stand how cute he is. I'm so lucky to have found him!

                  Thanks! It's an infant dress that I altered to fit her.

                  Oooh, those sound good. I'll have to look for them, thanks for the tip!

                    Setavulos,
                    my Duffy's nose isn't doing that yet, but I try not to have him snuggle in bed too often, because I don't want his fur to become too matted.
                    However, we have and have had other stuffies that have their nose become smooth, shiny, and polished because the fuzz rubs off.
                    It is a sign of being loved.

                      We are in the middle of a scorcher heat wave in Nashville.
                      I think it is making people (and bears) crabby.

                      I came home to find Shaggy Duffy (24") sitting like this!

                      "Shaggy Duffy! That is so uncouth!"

                      "Well, it's HOT in here and I have fur," he said. "Could you at least start leaving the air conditioning on when you go to work?"

                      He walked me over to the thermostat to show me. "Geez, people treat their PETS better than this!"

                      WOW! I sure got a scolding! Lesson learned; Disney bears have fur and are susceptible to hot weather!

                      I guess my first hint was when Duffy and Shellie May were going bear naked.

                        Mr. Bear has had a hard time understanding what the "big deal" is about the girls traveling all the way from Japan. So today they girls set out to help him understand and had him dress the part.

                          Jumbo Duffy and Jumbo Shellie were looking at photos of the vacation in the big woods and now they are ready to go on their own adventure. They were having a little conference with Patriotic Duffy and I hope they are not thinking about stowing away. I have seen Patriotic Duffy conferring with some of my other bears and I hope they are not planning a coup! He is a mischief maker, that’s for sure! He got a taste of adventure and now wants more.

                          “I’m sorry. You’ll be leading a nice, relaxing life at home like most of the other bears. You’re too big to cart around to all day activities.”

                          “Yeah, sorry if it makes you sad, but no shoes, no service,” said Shellie May, as she patted Jumbo Shellie’s paw. There is NO shoe big enough to fit their hugely wide width feet!

                          Luckily, even with a stool Jumbo Duffy is not quite able to reach the doorknob.

                            Duffy & I just got back from a couple days back at WDW. Crazy fun! Today (well, yesterday... Saturday) we met up with a friend and her Duffy and it was mayhem (in a good way). It's past 1:00am here and I'm going to be shortly, but tomorrow I'll work on getting my photos uploaded & posted here.

                              Ok here we go!

                              Duffy & I spent day 1 at Disney's Hollywood Studios. The main goal was to see Mike & Sulley at their Monsters University greeting area (wearing our matching Monsters U shirts).

                              Ready for Homecoming!


                              Stopped at the animation building to get photos with some of the Monsters University stuff.




                              Made our way to the greeting area way in the back of the park (they greet back by the exit of the Backlot Tour).









                              After we met our favorite monsters, it was time for lunch. The counter service options at DHS are pretty underwhelming, but then I remembered I liked Pizza Planet when I had it several years ago, so that's where we went. Notmally theme/amusement park pizza is disgusting, but the stuff at Pizza Planet is actually pretty good!

                              Streets of America!


                              PIZZA!!!


                              Got the veggie pizza. The choices are that, pepperoni, meat lovers & cheese. The only meat I like on pizza is ham (pepperoni is too greasy for me these days and I don't like most sausages) and I didn't want boring plain cheese, so I went with veggie & just picked the tomato off (I hate raw tomato).





                              Greetings from the Happiness Hotel!


                              Saw this prop setup in the Muppets shop.


                              Took a ride on Star Tours since it only had a 10 minute wait.


                              Being silly.


                              Hooray for Hollywood!


                              Duffy wanted his photo with Harrison Ford's footprints.


                              BALLOONS!!!


                              Tower of Terror had a 20 posted wait, so we did that too.


                              Took a spin on Rock N Rollercoaster via the single rider line, went back to the animation building to see if there were any surprise character meet & greets (they do this sometimes on busy days and it was a busy day), then made our way out of the park as it was after 5pm and I needed to get checked in at my hotel.

                              After we got settled in at the hotel, went out to get some dinner to take back to the room to eat. The hotel gets the channel that shows the Tampa Bay Rays games and we wanted to watch the ballgame.

                              Got rice krispy treats at Fuddruckers. Wasn't in the mood for a burger this time.


                              That's it for Day One. Stay tuned for Day Two... where we meet up with a friend and her Duffy and the bears terrorize the parks!

                                All these pictures are so cute! I snuck my Duffy into the Lone Ranger with me and my nephew the other day but I felt too self-conscious to take pictures. Afterwards we went for frozen yogurt but poor Duffy stayed in my bag for fear of ***** looks. Do you guys have any advice for a shy 22 year old who LOVES stuffies and Disney but feels too old for them in public? I want to take my Duffy on adventures like your bears (and to eventually pass them and my bear onto my future kids one day) but I feel silly walking around with him or posing him for pictures unless in a kid-at-heart-friendly area like Disney. Thoughts? :shy:

                                  Just tell people you're doing a Disney bear photo shoot and are on a forum. And if they still look at you funny, who cares, you're never going to see them again anyway, and you're not hurting anyone or infringing on THEIR rights (i.e., cutting in line, etc.). I wouldn't bring my bears on any guided tours because that would be infringing on their rights (rushed, others want to get photos in limited time), but for other stuff, I don't care. I also don't bring my bears everywhere; I'm selective, so it doesn't get to be a chore, just when I have a story idea.

                                  You could also start doing stories around the house to get a feel for how to pose them, and become smoother/faster at it, and then start taking them out in public gradually. It also helps if you show up to places that are open dawn to dusk before or after they get crowded. Sometimes you have the place to yourself.

                                  Good luck!

                                    WTP, I am twice (yes 2x) your age and the only time I second guessed taking my bears was on a trip with a friend who is overly judgmental of me. I went to the beach and specifically went out for photo shoots. People look, question, shake their heads... let them. Some think it is adorable and will stop to watch.

                                    Jill is right, as long as you aren't infringing on others' rights, you are well within your right.

                                        I agree with mmommie! People are too critical nowadays. You have to enjoy life and if taking your bears on outings makes you happy, then who cares what anyone else thinks! BTW-I'm much older than you and take my bears to the movies and on trips with us!

                                          I'm pushing 40 and I don't give a flying rat's patooie what people think. I only take my bears special places, but if I start getting looks I just say, "It's a thing I do. He's my travel companion.... like a cute and cuddly version of the Travelocity gnome." Then people are usually, "Oh! Cute!" and that's that.
