Once upon a time, the rubber duckie was made in America. Now they are all made overseas….mostly China! Rubber duckie was actually invented in Ohio! Well, Craig Wolfe from CelebriDucks is bringing the industry back to America where it all began. It is not an easy process. “The amount of logistics in this project would blow anyone’s mind. One day, I’ll have to really talk more about what it takes to make one duck as it still amazes me to this day!” says Craig. He’s got a team of painters, makers, molders, artists, sculptors etc. in the US already…..but there is so much more that goes into the process. It is exciting to think that after many, many years, rubber duckie will be coming home! And now….may I present to you….Sam! Sam will be the first American made duckie to be brought back to America after all these years! I think the name suits him perfectly!
Sam is estimated to be available for purchase by early next year! You can also read the full story of Sam here:
This is exciting news for rubber duck folks! It will be a must have for collectors of all ages!!
