I picked up D.Duck, Duckles, and Ducksino.
I don't know if I'm really a true collector yet. This is a fairly new thing for me. I'm a high school English teacher, and I'm currently doing a vocabulary project with my seniors that involves ducks. I'm giving away more ducks than I'm actually keeping. Although, I am keeping a few just for me. (Maybe, I am collecting.)
Believe me, nothing is more fun than seeing football players proudly wearing rubber duckie necklaces and displaying their prize ducks in their lockers. Next week we have a play-off game -- just before Halloween. I'll give out halloween duckie necklaces to everyone that is present that day, plus award Duckenstein and Boo to the top scoring students -- top football player and top non-player -- at the pep assembly!
Next project is to make a rubber duckie sweatshirt for me to wear this winter.
Duckies are fun!! Just ask my students!
> Thanks for the heads up, Gramma Dat!
> I got Ducktape, P. King, Hollow (my 2nd one of him), Duckerina, Hi-Ya!, and Daizee (also my 2nd one of this one.) Diazee reminds me of the swim caps (they had daisies on them) that my sister and I used to wear when we were kids.

> PS: My TRU also had Sir Shallow, Duckhorn, Kernel, Ducksino, Duckosaurus, D Goose, Aguaduck(green), Ducky D, and Lame. I don't really care for ducks wearing fabric clothes or hats, so I passed on Sir Shallow and Ducky D. But with most rules, there are exceptions. I do have three ducks with fabric of some sort: Duckerina, Holly, and Duck T.
