Remember back when Duffy arrived stateside in late 2010
? A lot of Internet discussion centered around Duffy being a short-lived craze that would not gain any real traction. Well, here we are in 2012, and Duffy is still going strong with both merchandising and his meet and greet location in Epcot's World Showcase.
In fact, Disney has now been forced to introduce a Duffy merchandise sales cap on all Duffy merchandise being sold in the parks and online. Guests will now be restricted to a maximum of 5 same-item Duffy purchases. This means that at anytime, guests can only purchase up to 5 of one item with the same SKU.
A similar scheme has already been in place at Tokyo Disneyland, where the limit is 3 items. The new sales-cap begins this Sunday, May 6 2012.
