      Re: Spring Voyage 2013!!!^^

      Last year they only did Duffy in the flower pouch, so this year ShellieMay is new.

      It's good to see the smiling bears back again, they are just too adorable. If anybody missed out on them last year, now's your chance! I love mine. This year, it looks like I'll save some money, since I have last year's versions. I will definitely need the larger bear costumes though. Also, I really can't wait to see what the separate Cape Cod gardening theme looks like...at least it was hinted at.

      I have to say, I love seeing ShellieMay in yellow. I get kind of tired of seeing her in pink. Her fur is pink, so sometimes it's too much pink-on-pink for her. Duffy looks great in contrasting blue, so ShellieMay needs some more contrasting outfits like this.

        THIS!

        I too am tired of seeing Shellie May in pink. It's just too much with her dusty pink fur. I like putting her in blue because it makes her eyes pop. She also looks really good in white and black. Even the stuff at Build A Bear is predominantly pink, which drives me nuts. Purple I like, but pink I never really cared for (and I'm a girl).

        Here's hoping I can splurge and at least get a little smiling Duffy. I was kicking myself for not getting him last year because he was serious cute overload.

          I don't mind the color of Shellie May's new outfit in any way; I'm just not a fan of the large daisy (the shells and leaves on the last year's were so cute!) and the print seems a little weird to me. But maybe that's just because I'm so used to seeing solids or more geometric prints. I don't know; it's still growing on me.

          Oh, I really hope you can! I LOVE Smiling Shellie May, who is just slightly larger than the 9" Duffies they sell here. She gets quite a bit of attention when I take her out. I have no doubt that Smiling Duffy is every bit as adorable. Treat yo-self!

            Yeah, I have to say, the smiling bears are the cutest so far. They are so soft and fluffy, even more than the regular bears it seems. Maybe that's because they use the same fur as the larger bears, so the plush seems fuller, because the bears are smaller. Also, the embroidered smiles are just perfect. These look even better than the original, larger smiling Duffies from a few years ago. I would love large versions of these smiling bears to dress up.

              That's an interesting notion. I have a feeling we'll get smiling bears this Christmas. It would be very interesting if they do them in the embroidered style of the 12" bears. Of course that's all just speculative. Among all the things the OLC team is, one I value most is that they are always full of surprises.:love:

                If they do make larger smiling bears, I do hope they use the new embroidered mouths. They look so much better than the earlier attempt, and they look closer to the artwork.

                I was thinking about this last night as I looked at my 2009 smiling Duffy, and the Spring Voyage smiling Duffy. I realized that really, the original smiling bear only happened twice. We thought it was a tradition, but they started it in 2008 for TDL's 25th anniversary, and then they did it again in 2009. However, in 2010 it stopped...maybe because ShellieMay was introduced, anyway we haven't seen them since...until the small Spring Voyage bears.

                So, I'm wondering if because it's now TDL's 30th anniversary, and it's also "The Happiness Year", and Duffy and ShellieMay have been labeled "The Happiness Bear" to tie in; what better way to celebrate then to release regular sized, smiling, "happy" bears for Christmas? That's just a hopeful wish from me though, I have no idea if OLC will do it.

                  I'm so excited to see the Smiling bears back this year! I was really regretting that I didn't get them last year! I wonder if that big blue tote would fit both 17" bears comfortably. Did anyone get the tote last year that would know how the bears fit? I was thinking about getting that as well. I wish I had not gotten the Spring Voyage outfits last year, as I like 2013 versions better. But I don't think I'll rebuy them. I'll put my money towards the Smiling bears!

                    The small creme pouch could be used for Duffy/Shellie May clothes or accessories. And I'll go with the trend here, the smiling bears are simply adorable.

                      I did, and kinda regret it. Last year's can hold one full-sized bear or both minis comfortably, but this year's looks ready to carry two full-sized bears in perfect style in a bag themed to Duffy's first park-wide event. This year's tote, if the size is right, is one of those "dream things" like the duffel bags from last year (and the mini duffels from this year if they're bear-sized); it's gonna be a must-have item if it actually stays on the shoulder and holds both bears.

                      You should! MiraCosta is wonderful!! I enjoyed Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, too, but MiraCosta is the best!

                            There will be two Duffy Post Announced Shopping Days for Spring Voyage. The first will be 3/20, and the second will be 4/12. The second one is particularly important, as that's when the Duffy and ShellieMay 30th Anniversary items will be released. I will not ship until after 4/12, so that WishListers from the first group still have a chance to add the "Happiness" items in, but I do hope that half the folks are eager to be sure nothing sells out and get in on the first trip. I would very much like to split up the shopping. To that end, each group will be limited to 15 people. This means if more than 15 people wait to be in the second group, only the first to send Wish Lists and transfers will be accepted.
                            For clarification, both of these Announced Shopping Days will use the 33/30% rate. WishListers from the first group can also freely add items on 4/12 with no additional service fee, and all items will be shipped together.

                            Any Additional Shopping Days after that will be +40%, like the current Additional Shopping Day for Sweet Duffy 2013 that was added in response to demand. The purpose of the increased rate for Additional Shopping Days is to encourage people to stay active on the boards and have real incentive to get in the Announced group. Spring Voyage is exceptional, but there is usually no limit on the number of WishListers. I :love: doing Duffy Post, but it is a tremendous amount of work and I schedule Announced Days when I really believe I'll have time to do it well.^^

                            The only reasons I'm announcing two days for Spring Voyage are:

                            -Spring Voyage is HUGE amounts of stuff, with several oversized items
                            -The Happiness Year release date is close enough to warrant merged trips that save WLers' shipping costs

                                I am definitely going to want to get on to this shopping trip. I really hope that tote fits both bears. I am curious to see what they release for the Happiness Year date. It seems I may be splurging alot during these two shopping trips. ^_^

                                      I keep staring at this page and just some of the goodies being offered and I can honestly say I am excited and alittle nervous for this. Excited because my Duffy and Shellie May will have amazing things. Nervous because I know I am going to spend alot and will be using alot of my tax money on this trip. >.> I suppose they would call this a labor of love. haha. ^_^

                                          I have so many tote bags now it's ridiculous. But I still need an official Duffy one. Most of my tote bags only fit one bear, but I have a few that both fit in (as well as my backpack). It's just such a pain to carry them both around, so when I go places I usually just bring Duffy along. But then I feel bad about leaving Shellie May at home.
