Duffy Moon
21 August 2006 | by jtorqSee all my reviews

I was so excited to find Duffy Moon! I have said "you can do it Duffy Moon:" to many people and everyone always looks at me like I am goofy. I knew it was something I saw when I was a kid and lived by that saying each day. I grew up thinking there was nothing I couldn't do! Now I can prove that Duffy Moon existed! Thank you!! and keep believing : )

I have an eleven year old daughter with ADHD and I have tried to install that she can do and be anything that she wants with a little effort! Instead of Duffy Moon, I say You can do it Kerry Jo! I use the same tone as I remember it. It was so uplifting as a kid, I only hope my child thinks fondly of it as she becomes an adult.
