Pilot Ducky from Accent Inns

Name: Pilot Ducky
Interests: Travel and meeting new people
Where to find: Accent Inns, Kamloops
Brand:  Ad-Line Ind., Inc.
Price: Free with a stay at the Accent Inns

It’s always a bit sad when vacation time comes to an end. However,  spending our last night of vacation at my first Accent Inns hotel in Kamloops definitely cheered me up. I was super excited to experience the ducky hotel. Pilot Ducky will hold an extra special place in my heart since he was the ducky waiting in our room for us. We also received motorcycle ducky as well. I was really hoping to get the ducky with the curlers in her hair and the coffee cup, so if you happen to have her and our willing to part with her, I am happy to trade.

This ducky has a slightly larger head than most of my other Accent Inns duckies. This is my 8th Accent Inns ducky. I really want the entire collection and want to blog the entire collection.

It’s too bad our stay was under such smokey conditions with all the forest fires, but we still enjoyed the outdoor pool and so did Pilot Ducky.

Get flying

Merduck Goddess of the Sea Ducky

Name: Merduck Goddess of the Sea Ducky
Interests: Pearl dodge ball
Where to Find: The Plaid Giraffe on Whyte Avenue
Brand: Rubba Ducks
Price: $18.00 Cdn
Hatched: April 03
Icon on her bum: Sea horse
Slogan for the picture:

This ducky has been on my list for a while, so my daughter and I were both super excited when we spotted it today. I love that so many trendy stores on Whyte Avenue have Rubba ducks again. I checked in Mars and Venus for rubber ducks today and they had a great selection of Celebriducks.

Merduck has a clam shell, starfish and a sand dollar in her hair. It’s too bad that starfish are so rare these days because we used to see them in the ocean all the time and now it’s so rare that I see them.

Save the Starfish

Poem on her tag:

“Sorry Charley,
Tuna’s not for me -
I do all my fishin’
Up on the beach.

Legend or myth?
Can’t U see -
this enchanting beauty
is looking for a man

with two webbed feet.”

This cute little piggy ducky has a curly tail and cure ears and a cute piggy nose at the end of her beak.

Flying Pig

Poem on her tag:

“This little ducky
Loves mud baths.
This little ducky
Rolls in them for fun.

This little ducky
Keeps pigging out.
This little ducky
Will get big and round.

This little ducky sings
‘Oink, oink, oink’

At the Love Luau.”

D. Coy - no clay pigeon Ducky

Name: D. Coy - no clay pigeon Ducky
Interests: Swimming and playing Nintendo Duck hunt.
Where to Find: When Pigs Fly on Whyte Avenue
Brand: Rubba Ducks
Price: $17.95 Cdn
Hatched: August 01
Icon on his bum: Mallard duck

I wanted to take a picture of this ducky floating in the pool in the building my Grandma used to live in before she passed away. However, the pool was closed so I wasn’t able to do that. However, I still stood him up on the ledge. This ducky has what at first I thought was a grenade around his neck but it is actually a whistle I believe.

It’s hunting season.

Poem on his tag:

“In no danger, Rick.
I’m trained for the hunt,
Wearing bright orange -
Commando green.

Wading for the
Call of the quacks
From unlimited ducks.
Buckles, my lab, is ready

To retrieve for me.

Hero Ducky

Name: Hero  Ducky
Interests: Volunteering as a firefighter and 13 is his favourite and lucky number
Where to Find: When Pigs Fly on Whyte Avenue
Brand: Rubba Ducks
Price: $17.95 Cdn
Hatched: Feb 20
Icon on his bum: Fire hydrant

Hero is currently helping out with the tons of BC forest fires.

I haven’t seen Rubba Ducks for many years and the only ducks that I have seen are way too expensive on eBay and Amazon Hero Ducky is quite expensive. However, it looks like they have a new website now that actually works (rubbaducks.com) hasn’t worked for years, but rubbaducks.net works and is shown on the next snazzy packaging.This means I might be able to complete my perimeter top shelf of being all Rubba Ducks!

I share a favourite number of 13 with Hero.

Poem on his tag:

“Slide down the pole and volunteer
-there is a Hero in all of us.

Every firefighter needs a hose,
Hydrant and a howdy or a hug.

Safety saves lives -
Smoke detector.
Smoke detector.
Smoke detector.

Don’t get burned-remember:
