Pretty sure I saw Duffy bears in September, in the shop next door to City Hall.

Thanks :) Kids will be happy, although the Build A Bear clothes fit him. My daughter is buying Duffy a Beast outfit!

The Storybook Store next to City Hall has a lot of Duffy merchandise, but there's outfits to be found in other shops as well.

Still waiting for a meet & greet with Duffy and/or Shellie May though.  :D

Its such a shame they pulled the meet and greets.
My kids were obviously lucky to meet him in DLP.

Just out of curiousity, when was that?

He was on the Christmas cavalcade when I went in November so maybe they'll phase him back in?

He has for the last few years been a part of the Christmas parade but has only done meets from April onwards in his sailor suit. I don't like his shoehorned story at all so can honestly say I'm glad he is is gone for the time being.

I noticed on a recent visit that all the Duffy merchandise is gone from the Storybook Store. :( Is this the end for Duffy & Friends at DLP?

Unfortunately, Duffy and Shellie May weren't very popular that's why there's no related merchandise available anymore. A shame in my opinion, as they are really cute! Would love to have seen Stella Lou merchandise too.

If DLP had properly marketted the both of them, they could have been as succesful in Paris as they are in the Asian parks.
I think that if they reintroduced them now, together with Gelatoni and Stella Lou, they would do a lot better because they have become a lot more well known.

That said, I _think_ you can still get the Duffy and Shellie-May Tsum Tsums in DLP, if you are lucky enough to come accros them in a shop or other (I certainly never have been).

We didn't see Duffy at all in the time we were there last weekend and early this week, when I went about 5 or 6 years ago he was one of the characters you could queue up to meet but I haven't seen him there in ages. I can't recall any merchandise in the shops for Duffy either.
