Nothing says “I love you” like a rubber ducky does.

Last year I bought a package of 10 of these mini duckies in red and pink. This year I bought another package so that I could have the cute turquoise rubber ducky too. This size of ducky works well in snow globes or for any craft project. Vday mini duckies love making homemade Valentine’s for their friends.

Snowflake Fairy Duckies

Name: Snowflake Fairy Duckies
Interests: Tobogganing and snowshoeing
Where to Find: Zydeco Gifts
Brand: Oriental trading Company
Price: $2.00 Cdn each

Sprinkle some snowflakes here, there and everywhere.


From Feb 06-08, 2017, we enjoyed the most snow we’ve seen since we moved from Edmonton to Victoria 3 years ago. My 5 year old, 3 year old and 20 month old enjoyed all our tobogganing with the Snowflake Fairy Duckies.
The two duckies with pigtails are the youngest fairies. They are friends with Tinkerbell and the Tooth Fairy. Yes, they have even been to Arendelle.

Fracture Glow in the Dark Ducky

Name: Fracture Glow in the Dark Ducky
Interests: Ghosts
Where to Find: Zydeco Gifts
Brand: Oriental trading Company
Price: $2.00 Cdn

Fracture Glow in the Dark Ducky debated being a ghost for Halloween. He wanted to make his fractures light up with LED lights like all the stick man (https://glowyzoey.com/) costumes, but he ran out of time.

My kids are dressing up as Harley Quinn, a Knight, and a Cabbage Patch Kid (my husband is dressing up to matchi). I’ll be wearing a pink sleeper with a rubber ducky on it complete with ducky earrings and rubber duckies elasticized to my pigtails.

Not a hairline fracture

Wicked Witch of the Rest Ducky

Name: Wicked Witch of the Rest
Interests: Flying, cackling, and playing quidditch
Where to Find: Zydeco Gifts
Brand: Oriental trading Company
Price: $2.00 Cdn

When I look at this ducky, I can’t help but think of my daughter. She started Kindergarten this year and recently explained to me that all witches have green skin. Even this little ducky has green skin and wants to me a good little witch (like the witch on Sofia the First).

This ducky is my only ducky who has a wart on the end of her beak. Her wart is green but her broom is yellow.

Who needs the west when you have the rest

Lanco Love Ducky

Name: Love Ducky
Interests: Eating Dungesscrab at Crabfest
Where to Find: Odyssey Books in Port Angeles
Brand: LancĂ´, Rich Frog
Price: $7.99 US

Love Ducky loves cooking and eating Dungess crab. It's her favourite type of seafood. When she isn't eating crab she shares her heart in other ways by giving us free hugs. Her "Puss in boots eyes can cheer up any shopper.

She makes a great stress ball and gives off quite the squeak.


So fresh

Willow Beach Ducky

Name: Willow Beach Ducky
Interests: Twirling my sun umbrella and skimboarding
Where to Find: Accent Inns, Richmond, BC
Brand: Unknown



“Can you twirl your umbrella?”


Last summer while my father-in-law was travelling for work, he stayed at his first Accent Inns. He was very excited to acquire a ducky that I don’t have. This isn’t an easy feat since I have 973 unique rubber duckies. However, we were both very excited when I was able to add this ducky to my collection.

Willow Beach Ducky is great at skimboarding. She always remembers to wear her hat to the beach. She’s also pretty good at holding her own in a game of Tennis.

Elizabeth's 1st Birthday Duckies

Name: Elizabeth’s 1st Birthday Duckies
Interests: Baking and decorating all kinds of desserts
Where to Find: Orientaltradingcompany.com
Brand: Oriental Trading Company
Price: $0.75 including shipping


Sprinkles make the cupcake.

My second daughter is 1 today! She loves rubber duckies, so we had a princess rubber ducky party for her. She was born at home in a relaxing birth pool at 2:33 AM. Every time she feels sad I bring her in my office and she points and smiles at the hundreds of rubber ducks lining my shelves. I used rubber duckies as party favours for my first daughter’s first 4 birthday parties and my son’s first birthday party. These duckies were are Elizabeth's party favours.

The tastiest looking cupcake ducky is the chocolate ducky on the far right. His vanilla friend also has a cherry on her head. The pink and purple ducks are at the party to help decorate and are really just along for the ride. The purple ducky is going in my daughter’s time capsule.
