Last month Toys R Us started selling a new duck thermometer. The thermometer itself is hard plastic, but the duck is made out of squeezable vinyl. The thermometer cannot be removed, but the duck is pretty cute so you might want to check it out!
Not too long ago Captain Quack added two new Cadillac duck sets. The larger one has a mom that is similar to the Target Easter Basket duck, but not exactly the same. The smaller Cadillac set is pretty cool because the mom and babies are a little unusual. My set came reeking of vanilla scent so beware those of you with very sensitive noses! Also, I splurged on their Duck Appliques and was very happy with them. They are high quality, very cute, and the suction cups really work. Very fun to do a sort of Easter Egg hunt with if you don't mind the suction marks on all your mirrors and glass!
Zydeco Gifts also got some new ducks recently so check them out espeicially if it has been a couple months since you swung by.
The rubber duck "train" is not slowing down. My sources tell me that there are plenty of new ducks from different manufacturers on the horizon so start saving your pennies!
