Peeps Birdie

NamePeeps Birdie

Interests: Being squished, chocolate coated and sparkled up.
Where to find: Peeps store, 150 National Plaza, Oxon Hill, MD 20745
Brand: Peeps
Price: $1.99 US 

So this isn’t a rubber ducky, but it is a rubber peeps. It’s a bath toy that is the same colour and size as a rubber ducky. However, its shape doesn’t really fit the mold of a rubber ducky’s. It has a bit of a tail and a similar head with no beak, but the way a peep is shaped makes it look like a pile of emoji poop.

I tired a peep for the first time and it was definitely a melt in your mouth gooey marshmallow mess. I’ve heard that they are fun to microwave, so I will experiment with that when I am back home again. 

This peeps loves Ben and Jerry’s Truffle Kerffule

and hanging out in George Washington’s hat on the American Way.

Star and Moon Duckies

Name: Star and Moon Duckies
Interests: Shopping for Steve Madden shoes, meeting their friends in Walmart.
Where to find: Toys R Us Outlet at Tanger mall,Walmart
Brand: infantino
Price: $1.99 US

When my parents were on the Oregon coast last May, they found these infantino ducks for me. Before that I had the plain blue, green, yellow and pink from our Walmart in Canada, but Walmart in the US has more of these ducks and in many different patterns. I love that each Walmart tends to have different ducks. I am still hoping to pop into a Walmart in Maryland to see if I can find a few more.

Star and Moon Duckies love shopping for shoes at Steve Madden. They are bargain shoppers. They also love hanging out with their friends at Walmart and watching their friends put a smile on kids’ or adults’ faces (each time they are purchased.

My twin is Washington D.C. ducky. Sometimes they ride the Capitol Wheel together and wait for people to spot their differences. National Harbor Ducky costs more than his twin. His favourite memorial is the Lincoln Memorial. National Harbor ducky is a  technical writer and manages translation for his team.

He has been on the following ferris wheels: the London Eye, High Roller, Star of Nanchang, Singapore Flyer, and the Meleborne Star. Next on his list are the Eurowheel in Italy and the Sky Wheel in Taiwan.

Lincoln's hat is the best.

The Gaylord National Resort has a great hot tub 
with a waterfall sprayer.
