Duo as stuffed animal
Why doesn't duoLingo market duo as a stuffed animal - with costume changes of course?
I would love to cuddle with a little Duo plushie. (≧◡≦)
I doubt that the meagre revenue to be gained from this would be worth the time spent organising it. I seem to remember a staff member saying somewhere once that the current gear actually loses Duolingo money (presumably it is there as it has advertising value—whereas a soft toy would just sit on a someone's shelf and not be publically seen).
How about designing your own pattern and making your own? When I was a little kid, my mother used to make stuffed toys. She would ask us what kind of animal we wanted.
Duo has a plushie, but Duolingo only gives it out as a special gift. It can't be purchased. It took me a few years to get one. But, staff finally gave me one this summer. :D
(Duo's crewmates represent some of my friends among the other moderators that they (and some non-mod friends) have been sweet enough to send to me their representative plushies as gifts over the years.)
As a language nerd, a fan of owls and a collector of offbeat stuffed animals, this would be a dream for me. Sadly, I think that the other people posting about the financials of doing these things are probably right: the amount it would cost to do a run of plushies would be prohibitive, or they would have to sell it for an extremely high price.
IDK, but I'm a huge language nerd so I would definitely want one lol <sub>(^-^)</sub>
Oh my word that would be so cute!!! They should totally make that!! ❤
That is actually not a bad idea. Though it would be alought of work.......I am still for it though! LOL
