Gelatoni, a cute artist cat, has been announced as a new friend for Duffy. For now there is only merchandise; however, if he is popular I am sure he will come to life as a character in the parks eventually (just as ShellieMay started as just merchandise before coming to the parks a year or two later).

Here is a picture of him with Duffy... the basic story is that Duffy drops his gelato, Gelatoni picks it up and starts painting with it (and shows Duffy how to paint?), and they become friends.

He looks so cute! Hopefully one the merchandising has gone wild they'll let him leave his house and step out into Cape Cod to meet guests! Big Grin

I have some of his merchandise (the little passholder bag), a Halloween postcard, a cookie tin (of which all cookies have been eaten) and a Halloween Gelatoni keychain (a sitting one). He's hella cute, I like him better than Duffy (and definitely like him better than Shellie May and her evil eyes!) actually.



I really hope they'll bring him to DLP, but I doubt that'll ever happen.

I heard from a friend who has a Tokyo Disney AP and goes loads that she heard from someone that works there that he should be available for meet and greets September at the latest. So hopefully that rumor is true!

In any case I'll start posting some more photos of my Gelatoni stuff in this thread (as it's the Gelatoni thread anyway ^^), starting with scans of my Halloween card

Cute card!

We're just hoping ShellieMay becomes regular at DLP. Having Duffy back would be a start!

It really annoys me that they binned Duffy. I really loved meeting him.
I don't actually understand why they decided to take him off the meet and greet roster. They have all his costumes, they dedicated a whole store to him. Surely from a marketing point of view having him do meet and greets would be a GOOD idea (don't get me started on DLP and marketing fail though, we'll be here all week).

I'm actually not fond of Shellie May at all I must admit. I think she has creepy evil eyes. It's those eye lashes XD.

Today's Gelatoni merch photo:



It's a little bag, just a little roomier than those plush Duffy and Shellie May bags they sell that you can clip onto a belt or another bag, but it also has a passholder pocket. The strap was a bit short to my liking, so I remade it into loops on which I can attach a longer strap
It's very soft, and I'm pretty sure it can be washed in the rinse cycle and left out to air dry (I do that with my Duffy quite a bit and he's still as soft and nice as the day I got him), but I would still avoid taking it out on a rainy day

Cute bag. I wasn't a fan of ShellieMay at first either, but since meeting her we have fell head over heels in love. She is so cute and we now have a multitude of ShellieMay merchandise! 😃

I think that postcard and this cookie tin are the only things I have that involve Shellie May. I wouldn't buy anything of her specifically, unless it was a gift for someone. I probably will get more Duffy things when I'm at TDS, because I find it hard to resist cute teddybears (or at least teddybears I think are cute) and I will definitely get more Gelatoni stuff!

Last piece of my tiny Gelatoni collection. I actually wanted to start collecting the little sitting plush Gelatoni keychains, but after seeing what they go for on ebay I decided against it
