Sometimes Chaffies are spotted out in the wild and they’re gone before you know it. Only thanks to the vigilance of our fantastic Chaffy spotters and their cameras do we ever know they were there! Like this amazing photo, by Chaffy uber-spotter Cate Trotter, of a Chaffy trying to get himself autographed at a One Direction signing!
Massive thanks to Sarah Weigel, who spotted a Chaffy taking a tour of the Far East, around Malaysia, Thailand and Kuala Lumpur. CLICK HERE to see the rest of the photos!
She even spotted a Chaffy house! What a luxurious-looking place to live!
It’s been really quiet in the search for Chaffies lately, mostly because when it’s cold outside Chaffies like to hide in doors and sit on radiators. However we do have a couple of excellent sightings which have come in over the winter months.
Here’s is an amazing SNOW CHAFFY made by the very talented Melissa Wong, and kept in her freezer!
And here is Chaffy soundchecking on stage with The Avett Brothers. Rock on, Chaffy!
(thanks to Annie for the photo!)
Thank you everyone for your sightings and emails, sorry for the delay in replying but we hope to get back to everyone soon enough! If we haven’t put your Chaffy pics on the site yet, do remind us!
Happy new year, Chaffy spotters! We hope you had a great festive season!
We certainly did. This morning a rather special envelope turned up featuring a whole COMIC drawn by the very talented team of Sam Reeve, Sarah McIntyre, Stuart Pyle, and Philip, Michael and Sarah Reeve.
Inside, Chaffies get up to all sorts of trouble trying to escape from rampaging Christmas puddings! Here is page one..
If you’d like to read the rest of the comic, Sarah has kindly posted it all up on her blog, which is HERE, so do have a look!
Thank you Sam, Sarah, Philip, Michael, Sarah and Stuart (phew!), it’s absolutely amazing, and a hilarious read!
Here is a Chaffy spotted in the wild, it’s amazing to get some actual footage!
(actually, this is a brilliant film made by Ellis Bowers, using clay. Thank you so much Ellis, it looks amazing!)
So sorry we haven’t updated Find Chaffy for a while, but thank you everyone who has sent art and sightings in, we do really really appreciate it. We just need to find more time to keep updating the blog! In the meantime, for everyone asking where they can get a Chaffy from, we don’t have any ourselves (they’re such elusive little creatures!) – however, it may be worth emailing our publisher Scholastic (email@example.com) who might be able to spot one around their office to send on. Please note – this is only a maybe though! Chaffies are very rare so we can’t promise anything, sorry.
We get a lot of wonderful Chaffy art sent in here at Chaffy Towers, and we really appreciate all of it. But this one is rather special. It is the creation of one Mister Eddie Gammon (age 11), who has painstakingly reproduced the front cover of the Find Chaffy book. Wow Eddie, this is incredible! You’re well on your way to being a famous artist at this rate!
Many thanks to the excellent Chaffy spotter Cate Trotter (oh that rhymes!), who photographed the wonderful Dave Gorman himself stumbling upon a Chaffy. Chaffies do like beards to sleep in, maybe that’s why
Thank you very much to one of our best Chaffy Finders Laura M, who sent in these photos kindly taken by her friends Marilyn in Ohio, and Patti in Maryland. Here’s a Chaffy having fun and rocking those shades!
Hello everyone! Sorry we haven’t updated for a little while, but we’re back with new sightings, and now the sun is coming out again we’re hopeful more Chaffies will be spotted enjoying the weather. We’ve also fixed the website so you can comment again, so please keep those comments and emails coming in, we love hearing from you!
A lot of people have been emailing in asking how they can get hold of a Chaffy, and if we can send them one. Unfortunately we don’t have any Chaffies to send out, we’re working to find a way we can do this, but we’re not there yet. Remember, if you have the second book Find Chaffy Now, there is an email address in the front which you can email to possibly get your own Chaffy.
Until next time, keep your eyes open for Chaffies! They hide EVVVERYWHERE!
