Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beachlibrarian Just too cute
I will so enjoy watching the young visitors to my library play with these adorable rubber ducks. They are very easy to identify (Santa Duck, Queen Duck, etc.) and their detail is quite adorable. I am just putting them out on the counter on a tray at my library for the parents to share with their young children.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by YOUMAD Purchased the duckies along with the book "The Ugly Duckling" and read it to the toddlers. They loved it and than put the ducks in water. Great time
At our infant/toddler care/learning center, we try to match stories with actual visual activities--this makes a learning experience fun for 2-3 year olds. Lucky it was a hot day, since we put water in a wagon and let the kids splash and play with the ducks and continued with the theme of the book "The Ugly Duckling." Soon the kids agreed, none of the ducks were ugly--just different. Not bad for 2-3 year olds and I am sure the task was made easier because of Oriental's great supply of learning materials and my daughter's ability to teach toddlers while at the same time they are playing. Thank you. I'm look for more items to pair together where teaching meets fun, which in turn makes happy little ones.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by apples4me Great for a K learning center!
I teach kindergarten and use them at my alphabet puzzle center. Once the alphabet puzzle, (I use large floor puzzles or the small foam alphabet squares that fit together) is put together, then they put the duckies on the matching letter. I have 4 students to a center. They work together to put the puzzle together and then again to match the duckies. This is usually a difficult task in the first month or 2 of school and can not be completed in the 10 minutes they have at that center. However, after a couple of months, most groups get the task down before the 10 minutes are up. I reward them with one gummy bear each or a smelly stamp on the hand for completion. Then I tell them to take it all apart and try to complete it again in the few minutes they have left at that center. I've used the same set of duckies for 3 1/2 years. They hold up well to the abuse they receive from 5 yr olds.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HMW926 My son LOVES these
My son absolutely loves rubber duckies, so these made a great first birthday gift for him. These are so cute and are smaller than standard size rubber duckies, which I like because there are 26 of them, and it makes storing them much easier. I have a zipping mesh lingerie bag I keep them in so they don't get lost. The only thing I would change about these is that they should come with their own storage bag, but that was an easy fix.

We used the alphabet rubber ducks as clues for our treasure hunt while on vacation in Duck, NC. The kids of all ages loved the clues and of course the final buried treasures they found.

Pretty cute and my nephew liked them...though the reindeer was kinda on the greenish side. Guess he was chowing on the leftover cookies for Santa.

Used them to fill Easter eggs (son loved the challenge of finding missing letters). They do not float but are still fun.

ABC duckies are great for engaging the kids in learning the alphabet, a little poor coloring but still worked great. I wish they were bigger!

I bought these on a whim. Love the way each letter has a unique character whose name starts with a different letter of the alphabet. Overall they are very nice but some of the lettering is very faint or not in enough contrast to be seen. Two the duckies were also lopsided.
