I’m excited to announce that ShellieMay, Duffy the Disney Bear’s best friend, will be coming to Disney Parks this fall. You may recall we introduced plush and accessories for Duffy the Disney Bear in fall 2010. ShellieMay debuted at Tokyo Disney Resort a few years ago, and was later added to Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, in August 2014. She has been one of the most requested items from Duffy the Disney Bear fans at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts in recent years.
As the story goes, ShellieMay was made by Minnie Mouse and filled her with joy so that Duffy would have a best friend by his side. We will introduce a 17-inch plush bear along with several costumes for dressing ShellieMay. Guests may also find a “My First ShellieMay” 12-inch plush bear.
Costumes will include fun things like a two-pack of costumes for dressing Duffy and ShellieMay as Cinderella and Prince Charming (please note this item will be arriving in late fall at Disney Parks). Other costumes will feature a deluxe Minnie Mouse costume or a deluxe pajama outfit.
Guests should look for several 12-inch pre-dressed plush including ShellieMay as a cheerleader and another with her enjoying a day at Disney Parks.
Finally, we are releasing a hardcover book that tells the story of ShellieMay along with a plush pillow. Both items will be perfect for bedtime stories. Look for ShellieMay items next to where Duffy the Disney Bear items are offered at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort. Guests may also find select items on our Disney Parks online store or from the new Shop Disney Parks app that is available as a free download from your favorite app store.
