So, What’s B.Duck anyways?
Designed by Eddie Hui in 2005, B.Duck was originally a gift for his children, he wanted to design a lovely rubber duck toy to accompany the children grow up. He created B. Duck by giving him twinkling eyes and lovely smiles and also playfully incorporating his own hairstyle to B.Duck’s appearance.
Creation of B.Duck was inspired by a real story of rubber ducks. In 1992, cargo ship container that were headed from China to Washington DC, tumbled in the North Pacific, rough seas and huge waves knocked the duckies overboard. 29, 000 rubber ducks began their incredible journey for more than 20 years. These rubber ducks have bobbed halfway around the world. 10, 000 pcs of them have washed up into Arctic ice, the rest of them went South to the shores of Japan, Australia, Indonesia and South America. B. Duck’s parents were one of the Floatees; they have been always role model for B.Duck- positive and love.
B.Duck is designed under the motto of “Be Playful” to appeal to a wide range of consumers across different demographics and has established footprints in Thailand, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico and other countries in Asia and Europe.
