One of the most iconic brands in America asked us to create a Harley-Davidson rubber duck. He comes in a gorgeous gift box showcasing their graphics and the tag line, “Float to Live, Live to Float!” They also wanted to know if we could make it 100% in the USA which we did! Thanks to Harley’s tremendous patience and support, we created this awesome collectible for The Harley-Davidson Museum. You can actually buy one by calling the museum directly at 414-287-2770 or writing to them at: email@example.com.
The soft traditional yellow rubber duck was actually invented in America and until now, they were all made overseas. We brought the rubber duck industry back to the USA and are now the only ones making them here once again. The Future Farmers of America were the first ones to have them made here again and you can get one of these limited first editions by going to:http://www.nyffafoundation.org/new-york-ffa-duck.html
While bringing the rubber duck industry back to America, the State University of New York contacted us about doing a loon for the first ever duck race in American history using American made ducks (or loons as the case may be). And so on Memorial Day 2012, the big event happened! They are also being used as a great item to raise money for their forestry programs!

ESET North America came to us because they wanted a very cute looking duck to put a hat on for an upcoming trade show.

They needed hundreds of these ducks to give away. Their duck was 100% made in America and we even helped them find real little hats to go on their heads. www.eset.com
This is such a great story. Ducks on the Pond came to us to create a duck 100% made in America to celebrate baseball and rubber ducks, both of which originated in the USA!! Ducks on the Pond is an expression going back to the 1940s to mean players on base waiting to score. The company is located in Detroit and they even gave one to Jim Leyland, the Detroit Tiger’s manager, in addition to the team’s owner and management.

Plagiocephaly is a common, treatable condition where the shape of a baby’s head is slightly deformed coming out of the birth canal. Cranial Technologies is the number one company in the world with over over 25 years’ experience helping babies with this condition.

We created a very special rubber duck of The Peabody Duckmaster for The Peabody Hotel. Here’s the history straight from Peabody Hotel’s, “The Legend of the Ducks.” How did the tradition of the ducks in The Peabody fountain begin? Back in 1933 Frank Schutt, General Manager of The Peabody, and a friend, Chip Barwick, returned from a weekend hunting trip to Arkansas. The men had a little too much Tennessee sippin’ whiskey, and thought it would be funny to place some of their live duck decoys (it was legal then for hunters to use live decoys) in the beautiful Peabody fountain. Three small English call ducks were selected as “guinea pigs,” and the reaction was nothing short of enthusiastic. Thus began a Peabody tradition which was to become internationally famous.The original ducks have long since gone, but after 75 years, the marble fountain in the hotel lobby is still graced with ducks. Today, the Mallards are raised by a local farmer and friend of the hotel. The ducks live in the hotel, coming down to the fountain every day from their penthouse suite until they are full grown and, on retirement from their Peabody duties, are returned to the wild. The Peabody ducks march through the lobby twice a day coming down on elevator led by the a guy dressed up a little like our duck called The Duckmaster at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily.
We produced an Octopus for SeaWorld in a beautiful underwater gift box. They wanted us to create one that would float perfectly upright with distinctive painting on the body. This little baby was a big hit and people loved him. SeaWorld is one of the premier theme parks in the world so it was a pleasure for us to work with them to create this one-of -a kind collectible. We don’t just make rubber duckies as there is no animal or mascot that we cannot make into a floating collectible!
We created a set of rubber ducks for Malayasia’s top rock band, Bunkface. With numerous awards and top of the chart hits, the bands popularity has continued to soar as have the Bunkface CelebriDucks which quickly became some of the coolest and first ever pop art floating collectibles in Asia! You can purchase a set of these amazing little ruber duckies at http://www.broadwayacres.net/.
We created a Conan O’Brien CelebriDuck rubber duck for the launch of Conan’s new show on TBS. We flew in 2000 of Connan rubber duckies that were given out to audience members the day of his first show. We matched the look of the rubber duck to the Conan duck in their TV commercial and it has become a highly sought after collectible. We made the deadline in record time and it was so successful we brought in a shipment of more Conan rubber duckies for a follow-up promotion!
The Sugar Factory stores are quickly becoming a Las Vegas institution. Their world famous Couture Lollipops are coveted by celebrities and A-Listers alike.

Most rubber ducks have a hole in the bottom which allows water in so the rubber duckies never float correctly not to mention they are not sanitary. We seal up the bottom of every rubber duck. So many rubber duckies lean or float on their side. You can toss a Celebriduck rubber ducky off a bridge and it will pop upright as it has been engineered to be one of the best floating rubber ducks available. With the recent concerns spotlighted by the media and environmental groups regarding questionable materials used in making vinyl’s, CelebriDucks has created it’s rubber duckies to meet all safety standards worldwide to produce what we feel is one of the safest and highest quality rubber ducks on the market.

What is unique with CelebriDuck rubber ducks is that the team or corporation is creating something which will get tremendous press exposure – both in their region and nationally. The press rarely covers the average promotion, but a CelebriDuck rubber duckie is much different as evidenced by the tremendous press sensation of our events. The media is still doing stories about our events even after it has finished while it is often picked up nationally on TV, radio, and in newspapers and magazines all over the country.

The whole idea of the rubber duck being artfully blended to also look like a celebrity is what makes a CelebriDuck rubber duckie so special. It is far different than an ordinary little yellow rubber ducky with a logo imprinted on it. Due to our brand awareness and the quality, detail, and presentation which people associate with CelebriDuck rubber duckies, any other rubber duck would meet with the inevitable comparisons by the media and fans of a lesser promotional item versus a very stunning original being used by the top professional teams in the country.

In addition to everything mentioned above, one of the most important and critical benefits of the CelebriDuck rubber ducks is that we always make our deadlines! The turn-around time to produce the quality product we did for a number of our events was quite short. We understand that to miss a promotional deadline by so much as one day would be both an embarrassment and major disaster. Thus, we can be counted on to never miss a deadline with our rubber ducks and to never compromise on quality to make that deadline. There is no monetary value for this kind of guarantee – it is priceless! Our manufacturing capability and quality control are excellent. Often in a shipment of promotional give-a-way items or any items for mass market from overseas, many of the items are defective with bad painting and bad quality. It is a lot of rushed work put out the door at an inexpensive price. With CelebriDuck rubber duckies, it is just the opposite. Most every Celebriduck rubber duck is a work of art in pristine condition. We spare no expense in production and have a system of checks and balances and quality control that is very effective to ensure that no fan or customer will ever go away disappointed.
We are reproducing famous people and companies who have spent their lives cultivating their image and their brand. They want to be represented in the most flattering way to truly honor their accomplishments. They see their peers being honored by being part of the CelebriDuck rubber duck line and they can be assured that they, too, are in the best of company. Our clients rest easy knowing that the person we have created a likeness of will have the highest quality reproduction available, something which is greatly appreciated by both the celebrity as well as their fans.
