Stovepipe Hat Rubber Duckies
The kids love them!
We use the ducks as a reward for completing lessons and the kids have all completed extra lessons to get ducks!

Just needs some work - problems are fixable
I had the same problem mentioned by some other customers with my shipment of 24 ducks -- I don't know if they are being squashed during shipping from China to OT, or from OT to the customer. Though the majority were deformed on arrival, they were definitely salvageable, and no worse than any other duck I have purchased from their website. I just microwave some water in a deep bowl until hot, then drop the ducks in, a couple at a time, rolling them in the water with a spoon until the correct shape is restored. This happens pretty quickly, and only for a couple did I have to re-treat after pulling on the hats to help straighten a side-tilted neck that didn't correct itself on the initial dunking. Just let them dry on the counter until cooled before bagging, and don't forget to squeeze out any water that gets inside the ducks. Only two of 24 had some paint issues that I fixed with a colored Sharpie. Inexpensive, and kids do love them for some reason.

Excellent product! Love these ducks!
These are the cutest ducks ever! They are a hit! I was reluctant to get based on previous reviews. They probably just had an isolated problem, but mine were perfect. Oriental Trading always stands by their products too if I had a problem with them. Highly recommend these cute ducks!!

Poor quality! Would not buy again!
Poor quality! When the ducks arrived, more than 50% of the items were unusable. They were deflated (and unable to be blown up) and badly mis-shapen. The event for which we purchased these ducks had to be cancelled due to the fact that this particular themed duck was the whole purpose of the event. Was unable to find them elsewhere shith short notice at the last minute. Would not order again.

About half of the ones I received are squished in, with their heads at odd angles. I bought these to sell in my store and probably won't buy them again. I'll be lucky if I can sell all of these. I've never received so many defective duckies from Oriental Trading before -- usually they're high quality. It's possible that it had something to do with how they were packed within the box.
