A Little Background:

  I still use my pattern, that I created in 2005 when I began making the D-Bears for the Disney Conventions as special editions or OOAK,s. You may recognized a few of them..

 Aurora was intended to be a Disney Edition in 2009 as were Walter, and the three manufactured plush editions.

 I was testing the different mohair fabric finishes for the black and white bears which were prototypes for Disney in 2009, when we parted ways. Only two were completely finished as their samples in the Sorcerer costume. My artist bears, made from this pattern are still desirable, so I have used one of the and 2012 is the year.

 The “Teddies To Go ‘D-Bears”, that I had produced in 2005 to 2008, are now called Pre Duffy Collectibles and are selling from $1250. to $1500.on EBAY at the moment.  I’ve been told that some have gone higher. .

 Many collectors were disappointed to see the Disney conventions come to an end after they celebrated their 20th year in May 2008.  Time changes everything!!
