Duffy the Disney Bear (aka Mickey Mouse’s travelling companion) made his holiday debut this year with a limited release of 2500 vinylmations priced at $16.95 each. 2014 Holiday Duffy is designed by Caley Hicks and was released last month. The gingerbread design is a one off that collectors can add to their Sailor and flocked Duffy bears. Duffy is one of the few vinylmations that does’t take the traditional shape of Mickey Mouse.
Don’t forget that the Duffy Bear 1 Vinylmation series (created especially for Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort and released July 2014) is still going strong. Priced at $12.95 each, these were still available at Disney Parks in Florida, and Downtown Disney as of last week, and are of course readily found on eBay and Vinylmation exchange sites/groups. Disneystore.com are still offering the tray at $207.20.
The collection comprises: Blue (Thomas Scott), Brown (Monty Maldovan), Bumble Bee (Thomas Scott), Green (Monty Maldovan), Pink (Caley Hicks), Polka Dot (Thomas Scott) and purple (Monty Maldovan). The chaser is a clear bear designed by Thomas Scott, rarity is 1:16 and can sell from around $30 up to $50+.
