Rare Duffy the Disney Bear by Steiff for 5th Anniversary of Tokyo Disney Land

Duffy the Disney Bear is Mickey Mouse’s favorite teddy bear! Did you know that Duffy became only popular after Japanese tourism company running Tokyo Disney parks decided to push for its marketing? That’s why Japan has more Duffy fans than any other places in the world.

Back in 2006, Tokyo Disney Sea celebrated its 5th anniversary and released limited edition Duffy the Disney Bear plush made by Steiff. Only 1000 bears were made, and sold out fast for a bear as expensive as 42,000 yen. Here is a catalog showing 5th anniversary Steiff Duffy (on the left). On the right is 10th anniversary edition, which is less rare.

I found one of these 1000 bears listed on Yahoo Japan Auction today.

It has been kept in the original box since its purchase, never been touched other than to take a photo this time. Everything including the original certificate and instruction manuals are included. It is a very rare, highly sought after Steiff bear as well as a Duffy merchandise in near mint condition.

Four more days to bid! Make sure to watch it if you want to win.

Steiff Japan’s representative explained, “such large response is unprecedented since Disney’s Teddy Bears.”
Kumamon has been selected as most popular local mascot character in past, but I suppose no one expected he would be this much of the rage! Go Kumamon!
