Duo as stuffed animal

Why doesn't duoLingo market duo as a stuffed animal - with costume changes of course?

    Although they don't seem to have a plushie yet (which they should totally add :D) they do have shirts and hoodies here Duolingo Gear.

    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.
