Cute bathtub chew toy
It’s a cute duck, but definitely won’t be confused with the classic yellow rubber ducky. I got it because our daughter was ready for some bath toys and I wanted ones that were free of BPA, phthalates, and wouldn’t collect water. This fit the bill. The little one definitely enjoys chewing on it during her bath. It’s completely sealed, so no worries about water collecting inside and molding. The plastic is very stiff due to the lack of phthalates and seems to be an appealing texture for chewing. It does tend to capsize easily and spends most of its float time upside down, but the little one isn’t bothered by this one bit. Husband is still wanting to get her the classic rubber duck, but we’ve agreed to stick with this one until she’s out of the phase where everything she can get her hands on becomes a chew toy.
No water gets in this duck, yay! He’s weighted so he leans a little forward in the bath, but the Little likes him just fine and he’s great to chew on. I was a bit surprised at how small he is, he sits comfortably in an adult’s palm. We’ll just have to get him a friend!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Rubber ducks with squirt holes in the bottom are cesspools for bacteria, mold and who knows what else. I would not want my child playing with or chewing on a toy that has captured old nasty bath water. The only way to fix that problem is by bleaching the rubber ducks or buy Boon Ducks! They still float and they are way more durable then a typical rubber duck. They are BPA & PVC free which makes me very happy to know and they make my kids smile. Job well done.
Cute but not easy to play with
This duck is nice for older kids or adults who like rubber duckies. It is not easy for the baby to grab because she can’t squeeze it. I guess this is the point (so water can’t get in and get all moldy) but I am considering other bath toys for my baby.
Seriously Foul Chemical Odor
I was shocked at the foul chemical odor that this duck emitted fresh from the box, with all of its claims to be a healthy toy. It took three weeks to off-gas, outside. I suspected the glue (China–famous for its gnarly glues!), but it could have also been the paints or other questionable chemicals in the plastic. (Sometimes what is used instead of pthalates, is even worse.) i I never felt right about it. As the saying goes, “When in doubt, don’t.”The Nose Knows. When a product smells that foul, something just isn’t right. If a parent inhales a whiff and ends up with a burning nose and an instant headache like I did, it can’t be good. There are plenty of BPA-free, pthalate-free, PVC-free products out there with no heinous odor, that don’t need to sit outdoors for 3 weeks until they don’t stink. For me, the cuteness didn’t warrant the potential safety hazard. (And it was tough–because it is cute.) There are reports of paint coming off of this toy, bleeding onto children’s skin and into their mouths, and several posts from consumers who emailed Boon, who refused to verify if the toy is lead-safe. So there are many reasons here, to avoid this product and look for something else.Not a toy I felt safe having in my baby’s warm tub, or in her mouth. If the cuteness is still swaying you, you’ll see what I mean when you open the box! I highly recommend the natural, phthalate-free rubber bath toys made by Lanco and Rich Frog, which have no odors, whatsoever.
Love the Boon ducks! So glad to have found some duckies that don’t have the squeezy hole in them to collect moldy water. We’ve got two & my 21 month old loves em.
Grandaughters favorite color is purple and…out went the traditional yellow duck. Some in reviews complained about odors but I found no unusual odor whatsoever!
Worth the money for sure
Love this duck. My 6 month old loves it as well. The duck floats great and does not tip. Spins funny when under the running water, which is fun to watch. No water gets inside so no fear of mold collecting in the toy. We got the purple and the yellow ducks and glad with the purchase?
