In July of last year, DisneySea launched a new line of character goods. The new character, Gelatoni, is an adorable, gray, Italian cat with a blue beret and bright blue eyes to match. The cute story of how Duffy and Gelatoni became friends goes somewhere along the lines of Mickey, Duffy, Minnie and ShellieMay visiting Italy as a part of their travels and when Minnie and ShellieMay went off to shop, Mickey and Duffy went to buy gelato ice cream.
But suddenly Duffy dropped his Gelato on the ground and Gelatoni, noticing Duffy’s little predicament, dipped his own tail in the melting gelato and began painting with it.
Yes extremely odd I know but it is endearing! Duffy and Gelatoni continued to paint together and became good friends by the time they both finished.
Gelatoni goods are on sale only in Tokyo DisneySea of course and they are available at McDuck’s Department Store in the American Waterfront, Aunt Peg’s Village Store in the American Waterfront, and Galleria Disney in Mediterranean Harbor.
