  • real or fake duffy and shellie may? and fake stella lou i believe

    I have a feeling that the duffy and shellie may bears I bought second hand at 40sgd are real and the stella lou rabbit which I bought is a fake because I saw it selling on a china website, exact same rabbit. Any comments or opposing views? Pls help me verify the authenticity of those toys.

    Hi! Looking at your photos, I do agree with you. I am sure the StellaLou plush, while very cute, is not an authentic Disney StellaLou. She's still awesome, tho, in my opinion!! The Duffy and ShellieMay do look like real DisneyParks merchandise. ❤️❤️❤️🐻🐰

      Thank you so much!!!! Do u have any tips on how to spot a real stella lou? Or any examples of fake merch of stella which look real? Afaik I only see tips for duffy and shellie may. Also I feel that Disney has never produced a stella lou which is dark purple, only light purple. So I think I didn't do ample research lol.

          Yes...these photos look like they are of an authentic Disney StellaLou plush!! There are some fakie StellaLous out there that do look pretty similar to the authentic Disney plush. When shopping for a StellaLou plush there are a lot of things that can help me tell a fake from an authentic Disney one.

          When I look at the tag I look for the "Made in Vietnam" label. This doesn't guarantee the authenticity but if the plush says it's made in China I suspect it may be fake. (I think some very early Duffy Bears sold in Tokyo Disney Sea were made in China, and the older Disney Bears that came before Duffy that were sold in America were made in China. But I think all of the newer Duffy Bears and all the Friends of Duffy were manufactured in Vietnam).

          Also the proportions of the plush are a giveaway for me and especially with StellaLou..her ears!! Your new plush pictures show how kind of...stiff...her ears are. The authentic Disney StellaLous have a special kind of insert thing inside the ears which is kinda stiff but does bend to make it so you can pose her ears a little bit!!!

          I don't know what all the fakes ears are like but there are many different kinds of fake Duffy and friends plush... and like you said... different colors!! I bought a fake Gelatoni plush once because it was pink...with eyelashes!! Amazing!! I named her Spumoni (but I ended up gifting her to a friend who had lost her own pink "Gelatoni" and was sad)!! ❤️💕 So sometimes it is fun to have the inauthentic fakie plush too. But I do like to know which ones are authentic and which ones aren't. ❤️🐰

            Sorry I saw your comment only today, yesterday I bought this Stella Lou plush from the seller. I was inclined to believe it was authentic because this Stella Lou had a detachable ribbon with its made in Vietnam tag. When I bought it home and stuffed it in the bag I could bend the ears, no problem, but I was scared to bend it too much in case they broke lol.

              Well.... I know, long time no see. I’ve just gotten away from the boards for awhile because... life. But I saw this and wanted to throw in my 3¢.

              I just looked at the tag on my ‘Olu (which I got last year through ShopDisney) and it says “Made In China”.

              However, the tag on my Cookie, it doesn’t even say! But I do know mine is 100% authentic as HKDL’s PR team sent her to me a week before she officially launched a couple years ago (it was a gift for helping them promote her launch on social media). My StellaLou is also like this, but again I know she’s authentic as a friend visited HKDL and picked her up for me. I never noticed that until now on both.

                  Vintage Duffy, that StellaLou plush looks 100% authentic to me!! Her ears are perfect!! 💕🐰🐇

                  ❤️🐻 Aimster, hi! I'm not on these boards much lately either but I do peek in once in a while to see what's going on. Cool to see you! And...wow! My 'Olu is made in China too!! Interesting!! And my Cookie plush doesn't say where her origin is either!! I wonder what the newer CookieAnn plush is like...I'm not a huge fan of the name change, but I do love her TDS chef outfit. (I have my fingers crossed that some of the Aulani Cookie merchandise makes it to the shop Disney website at some point so I can bring home some of those items...)!!

                  So I guess the "Made in China" tag isn't an easy way to tell a fake after all!! And there are a LOT of fake Stella and now also fake Cookie plush on eBay!!! I even saw one gratuitously fake 'Olu plush!! I wish I had taken a screenshot of it...he looked so strange!! 😳🐢
