  • Re: New Duffy Merchandise

    You forgot the new Jedi Training Academy one as apparently it's already available at Disneyland/DCA and probably at WDW too.

    And apparently they're phasing out the safari, My first Visit to WDW and baseball ones as at the Charcter Warehouse outlets nearby, they have a deal if you buy 17" Duffy you get those 3 costumes free. At least that's the impression I got when I saw that deal there last month.

      Yes, Jedi. I forgot that one. It's at WDW now!

        As much as I hate to see Duffy as a "bargain basement item," the US marketing just really goes for cheap deals. The only problem with that, other than quality, is that I would never wanna buy anything at full price, knowing that such over-the-top deals are likely coming down the line. I understand the pricing strategy for small items that are just a little piece of random merchandise, but for establishing a "new" character as legitimate and valuable, I'm not sure this works for me.:unsure:

          Found this on ebay. It's interesting because this is one from Hong Kong. However, when you read it carefully it says "Disney Parks" on it. This might make it's way to Epcot. It would be perfect for that!

            Thanks, updebrooke! :love: the concept, not wild about the design. If it was less than $10, though, I'd totally buy it. I wonder what it retails for?

              I'm guessing it's 19.99, but it looks fun! I went through all the pictures and I'm sure it's coming to DL and WDW.

                If the past year of US Duffy releases are any indication, even if it starts at $19.99, it won't stay at that price long. If anybody sees it under $10, please pick up one for me.^^

                  You'll notice that any park merchandise has the generic "Disney Parks" on it these days. It's all part of the Corporate Strategy that they are "One Park". The executives have forgotten what makes souvenirs special - individual park styles/labeling, unique. I want someone to know where I got it from. My spend on US Park Merchandise is down to less than $200/yr. My spend on Tokyo Park Merchandise is ... well let's just say obscene by comparison.

                    I agree with TDS Duffy, Im not a fan of the One Park thing. I too want to let others know where Ive gotten an item. Its the fun part about it. I remember as a kid seeing WDW t-shirts and going I wish I could go there. Then when i was able to go there, it was so special to have a WDW t-shirt that I couldnt buy at DL. And I know not everyone lives by a Disney Park so maybe that doesn't matter, but DLR is mostly a locals park, so of course they want different stuff when they go to other parks. Heck I want land only items, like Tomorrowland and so on items. I loved going shopping at DL and getting different items at different shops. No I dont bother.

                    I have stopped spending much money in the State Parks, sad but true. I would buy the Duffy Past Port, because I was thinking about making one. But I dont buy the the duffy costumes at DL anymore. That $20 or so adds up over time and I can buy better costumes at TDS. And its special because it is only at TDS. I wish Disney would change their minds on the one park thing.

                      I agree with you Janell I really don't like this one park thing, each park is different and should be celebrated as being different and having items that are just as unique to them selves, I to remember the different disney parks having different items and as a kid thats is what made me want to go from the park here in california to the one in florida or even the one in paris and now the one in tokyo and all over the world.

                      some of the over seas parks do have park branded items such as tokyo and paris, I just wish they would re do that over here again as the two parks yes are in the united states but they are two different worlds. I would love the chance to go to florida and visit the resort again because it is different, but when I walk into the disney store... I just see the park over and over and over again the something special and spark isn't there because that allusive item from a certain part of the park is gone because its sitting on the shelf in stores all over the country.

                      Please don't get me wrong, I love that everybody can get disney things and hold onto a piece of the magic no matter where they are. I just miss the childlike wonder and magic when you get to hold the item you had to go into get and that it was special because of where you got obtained it and the memories that you made in order to get it rather it be a phone call through friends or your self at the park with friends and family.

                      Onto Duffys costumes at the park, the last few times I've been inside the park I've been disappointed, they have been running wonderful sales don't get me wrong on that (buy 3 for 30 which I believe is still in effect) but the costumes are not the best quality and maybe the people going into buy them are hurting them (last time I wanted to get one sorcerer costumes and on all of the costumes the ear area is ripped off, or maybe just not placed properly) but they may just want to place Duffy's clothing in a nice bag for you to buy as well so that way if it is just somebody going in they don't ruin the stock that is out on the floor and if it isn't then we as consumers know that the costume is less then to be desired as it will be (ripped or hurt easily.)

                      I'd love it if maybe the could get inspiration from tokyo sea and make nicer clothing or at least be proactive with what we have.

                      sorry for the long rant.

                        Wow, its been a few months since I have looked at Duffy items at DLR. I am sorry to hear that the costumes maybe getting messed up by guest. How sad is that? People need to learn some respect. Im sure Disney wouldn't put out an item that has been torn. So my guess is its the guest, which just saddens me.

                        Disney is about the magic and wonder. That is why I love Disney so much. I hate to see them get away from that. I don't want the same rides at DLR and WDW or any of the other parks. I like to visit and see different things. Why else would someone travel to the other parks? I do like the Disneyland/MK parks to have the same rides, but different. That to me is fine. Sorry Im getting off topic.

                        • Re: New Duffy Merchandise

                          I hate the "One Park" thing too. A friend of mine picked up a Duffy cell phone strap for me when they were at HKDL. I finally got in the mail last week (along with one of the cute Duffy Christmas stickers they were handing out at the park) and his tag says "DisneyParks". Was disappointed it didn't have a HKDL tag to make it more special, you know? Even his tag that shows his story was all in English (was hoping it would be in Chinese). I'm still happy to have him though as now I have Duffy stuff from every Disney park in the world, which is pretty awesome. But the sticker says HLDK on it, so that's something I guess.

                          And that sucks guests are physically ripping up the costumes. But I see that at everyday clothing stores here too. People just don't give a flying rat's patooie and just leave things on the floor or half hanging off the hangars. It drives me nuts as I worked in retail when I was in college and it's really a pain to keep going around straightening racks of merchandise, knowing people are just going to screw it up in 5 minutes.

                            I agree that the one park labeling is a dumb idea. When we were at HKDL resort looking for Duffy costumes, a friend (who knows almost nothing about Disney or Duffy - it was her first trip to any Disney park) suggested we get the China costume. We thought about it - but when the tag just said "Disney Parks" we changed our minds and got the "My first Visit" shirt. She asked why and I was like.. I can get that same costume at WDW. Now if it had said HKDL, I would have bought it in a heartbeat. Then, it would have been more special (at least to me).

                                Ok that's actually cute. Looks like I'm going to have to do some negotiating with my CM friend in Paris. :lol:

                                        Wow, I'm surprised! Cute and original design! Why didn't they do this for WDW's 40th? Instead they release a fugly sweater. Hope this aesthetic phases over to the US!
