Top Ten Reasons To Collect Rubber Ducks



10. They are cheaper than other collectables…like jewelry, art, cars, china, and shoes.
9. They don’t break.
8. They make bathtime so much fun.
7. They are not creepy like dolls.
6. They are low maintenance. They only need a little dusting off now and then.
5. They aren’t as obnoxious as snow globes.
4. They promote happiness. No one gets pissed off and throws a duck. Doesn’t happen.
3. What are the odds of a burglar breaking into your house and taking your stash of rubber ducks? (Not very likely).
2. Because they are like Lays Potato Chips…you can’t stop after having one.
1. Because they are for everybody at any age anywhere on the globe.

Million Dollar Duck Race



On August 6, approximately 25,000 rubber ducks took the plunge into the East River and raced from the Brooklyn Bridge to South Street Seaport for the 2008 Duck Race! The race was a charity benefit for the Special Olympics. It was quite a spectacle watching all the ducks as they made a mad dash for the finish line. We adopted a few ducks for the race. Although our ducks did not finish first, we had a spectacular time rooting them on.

The Ducks go to Central Park


After a long winter the weather suddenly got nice out, so the ducks decided to waddle through Central Park today.

“What a nice day to buzz around the park.”

“Ahh, a nice shady place out of the sun.”

Carnie ducks go to the Amsterdam Ave street festival in NYC


“What’s a two headed duck gotta do to get a funnel cake around here?”

“A street fair wouldn’t be complete without some sort of deep fried cookie/snack cake/candy bar.”

Quack Remedy? “Step right up to Dr. Pickle! We’ve got the cure for you!”

“Heehee! I am a quack up at the street festival with all my clowning around.”

Duck Soup for the Soul


I have been listening to this song called “All the Same” that makes me smile and inspired this picture: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpzkHhgcZG4

National Tartan Day


This weekend the ducks went out to celebrate National Tartan Day. The first thing they did was head over to the Haggis cart for a snack before the parade.

It was such a nice day that Scotty decided to go for a swim in a fountain along the way. ” Scuze me while I take a quick dip-it has been a long winter.”

Before the parade Seumas warms up with some other pipers.

And Scotty gets a picture with a fellow Scotsman.
