    Re: Spring Voyage 2013!!!^^

    Thanks for the explanation Eeee-va. I'm new to this board and this helps me ballpark how much I should save if I want to import.

            People already have their care packages? I'm not a fan of the customs folks in Los Angeles. LOL

                I'm even less of a fan of the customs/mail system over here!! They have now finally decided how much I have to pay, and have moved it on, but I've got to wait for a letter (which will take a couple of days) telling me how much I owe them, then pay it, and then wait a couple more days for delivery/collection - whichever is quicker!!! So adding the weekend in, I'm not hopeful of seeing it before Wednesday at the earliest.

                I had kind of forgotten about the duty, and have now begun to realize how much this costs !! (didn't think with my head, only my heart!) Think I may have to re-think my Spring Voyage wishlist! I will know more when I find out how much I will have to pay for the duty, but may have to cut down on SV items (boo) - or on eating!!! Surely smiling Duffy and ShellieMay are more important than anything, even food!!!

                  I don't really understand how that system works. Why do you have to pay more in the UK? You're already paying for the international EMS service. I don't get the system.

                    Got my package yesterday! Woot! Really adore the costumes. I mean I do love them all, but since DH and I are foodies and love to cook, it's as if we have the bears in the kitchen helping us in their chef's uniforms! I guess we need to learn how to make chocolate truffles now so we can use the mold.


                    Really love the key chains too. I was really debating that one but now I am very glad I got them. Such high quality with the sturdy clasp that I feel comfortable putting them on my bag for visiting the parks. I am steadily adding to my collection of small items I can wear on me to show my love for Duffy even on days when it just feels too cumbersome to carry the bears around for the whole day.

                    Thanks sooo much again, DuffyD! You are the best!

                      Basically in the UK or EU, you'll pay a import tax on the items being brought in because they were not made in the EU.

                        Has anyone heard if new CCC outfits will be released to coincide with Spring Voyage? I'll be so excited if they have another set!

                          Pirates of the Caribbean Disney bear) since all his Disney bear/Duffy siblings are larger. I'm considering getting one of the smaller US Duffy bears, so I would have three (3) small Duffies and only one (1) small Shellie May. So to those Duffeteers who have one (1) or both smiling bears (although all Duffeteers are free to answer), my questions are do you feel that the two (2) better complement each other as a set? Or do you feel as if each bear can stand on his/her own? Do you regret only adopting Duffy or only adopting Shellie May? Advanced thanks for the input.

                            I only have Smiling Shellie May (and a couple US bears of the closest sizes to her to date). Of course the Spring Voyage Smiling Duffy and Smiling Shellie May would be a great set together. They're commemorative of Spring Voyage and would be so cute together! But, I like how my Smiling Shellie May compliments my American 12" US Duffy. She is substantially smaller than him, so I view them rather like a big brother/little sister. I LIKE that they aren't really the same at all--it makes me feel like they're more unique because they're a set but they're different, as opposed to the Smiling Bears that match each other so closely. I think part of that is that I enjoy contrasts, though, like two differing things coming together and interacting and somehow working. (Though on the other hand, sometimes seeing matched Duffy/Shellie items together can melt my heart. I haven't seen many.) Anyway, if you are more of a "matched set" person, you actually may not be happy unless you have both bears.

                            9" US Duffy is noticeably smaller than Smiling Shellie May (though not nearly as big a difference as the difference between 12" Duffy and Smiling Shellie May). I know I've said in the past that they were pretty close, but I'm looking at them side-by-side right now and my 9" Santa Duffy is smaller than I'd remembered! So my tendency would be to again view Smiling Shellie May as a mentor to the 9" Duffy. (Somehow the smaller a bear is, the more childish, until you reach magnet size, in which case they turn into irresponsible tiny adults. :shy: )

                            I DO think the 9" Duffy and Smiling Shellie May compliment each other well, but I think most people view Shellie May as being the same size as or even smaller than Duffy, so I can see where the size difference could be a deal-breaker. (The magnet bears seem to be the same size, so I view them more as being the same size; I understand the full-sized Shellie May plush is smaller than the full-sized Duffy, though.)

                            Smiling Shellie May hasn't interacted so much with Santa Duffy (who gets more love around Christmas) yet...though actually, a SPRING Shellie May with a WINTER Duffy is kind of a fun contrast.

                              I am getting excited reading through all the posts.
                              I gave my daughter the Duffy and ShellieMay puppets today. She squealed with joy. So much so that my husband thought something was wrong.

                                Here's the teensy little Spring Voyage update. It's a new piece of artwork, and Duffy gets to stand on his own two feet!^^



                                To me, it also looks more like Shellie is jumping than being carried here, so I'm happier.

                                      I see Shellie May as maybe even dancing or being swung around by Minnie...either way, she looks very much "alive" to me. Very cute!
