Duo Stuffed Toy
So I was just stalking/lurking around Instagram and Twitter then I found these:
I think these are for the Duolingo Team [?]
Look at the table I think these were sold to Harvard Students [?]
Ooh, why don't the start something like "trade in 1,000 lingots for a plus Duo." that would give me incentive!
OK, so how many lingots for a stuffed owl? For a t-shirt? For a personalized owl with your various language flags? I can finally see a use for my languishing lingots!
Physical items cost money, the only (cost effective) method of using lingots for these items would be - Coupons/discounts - Buying designs that you can then put on t-shirts (or posters or whatever) - Plushie pattern so you can buy the material to make your own Duo plushie (example: https://www.google.com/search?q=plushie+patterns&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=2xhFVYbQBojCggS65oEw&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAg&biw=1777&bih=861&dpr=0.9)
I need a Duo plush on my desk in work. What a great conversation starter it would be too!
If this gets many upvotes and comments, do you think the staff with add the Duo plushie to the store?!? :) :) :)
I think so. I posted this so that the staff will be like "They've found it, they'll have it"
I now want these much, much more than I expected to before I clicked on the link.
I may need to apply to Harvard now.
They were probably free for job applicants or student who visited the table to ask questions.
I'll remind myself to study incredibly hard for the SATs so I can go to Harvard and get one of these. ;P
I know this is a joke, but if you really want it (and have a bit of extra cash) you could commission a custom Duo plush.
It just seems cool- it's not something that I really want :P I wouldn't apply to a different university for a plush, haha. I think that making money off of a copyrighted character (like making a plush of Duo) without permission could lead to serious copyright issues, though.
I'm sure that you could make one for yourself without problems... but I couldn't design Duo gear for Zazzle without their permission... or I'm sure I'd get a notice from them saying that Duolingo had complained and took down my work.
Agreed- when I said that, I meant distributing them without permission would lead to copyright issues. Sorry for any confusion :)
There're plushies at the store I work at that look somewhat like Duo, I've been meaning to take pictures.
All, no one is going to bat an eye at one commission, however, if someone was making dozens of commissions off one character, or mass producing it, then someone would get angry.
If I had known those were there, I would have donned my "Hahvahd makes ya smahtah." shirt and taken the T over to Harvard Square. A plush Duo would definitely be worth sneaking in for.
No way these were sold. They're hiring for programmers. That is DEFINITELY swag!
