They variations now available range from occupations to rock and roll stars.

A shipment of 29,000 rubber duckies fell off a cargo ship in the Pacific Ocean. These little guys have traveled around the world, following the ocean’s currents. Spotting’s have occurred ever since! Indonesia, Australia, South America, and the Bering Strait, the Arctic and the Atlantic Ocean are now home to these little yellow quackers. Have you ever spotted one?
So on January 13th, serenade your favorite bathtime toy with some verses from Jim Henson’s famous song!
