CelebriDucks, the industry’s leading rubber duck manufacturer whose Celebrity Duck Line was voted one of the top 100 Gifts by Entertainment Weekly, is proud to announce the release of their PVC Free and Latex Free Good Ducks. They are considered to be the safest rubber ducks for babies to teethe on. Parents wanting to avoid baby teething toys with toxic chemicals often believe that they have found a safe alternative in natural latex rubber. This is surprisingly not the case as latex allergies can occur with repeated exposure. Cleveland Clinic, Boston Children’s Hospital, and The Mayo clinic state that “Children are not born with latex allergies; they can develop as one is exposed to latex numerous times in items like diapers, bottles, nipples, and paciﬁers. A latex allergy can also become progressively worse and children who become allergic to latex can more easily develop allergies to related things such as bananas, avocados, peaches, tomatoes, etc.”
The CelebriDucks USA division is making their PVC Free and Latex-free Good Duck teething toys 100% start to ﬁnish in America using the highest quality, third-party tested, food and medical grade materials. The Good Duck won the BEST GREEN TOY AWARD from Dr. Stevanne Auerbach, “Dr. Toy”, one of the leading authorities on children’s toys, who, while working in Education for the federal government, approved the ﬁrst grant for The Children’s Television Workshop’s “Sesame Street”.

Craig Wolfe, CelebriDucks’ President, said that “Most people are unaware that the rubber duck was actually an original American invention before the whole industry moved overseas. We are proud to be the only company making rubber ducks here in the USA once again and giving parents conﬁdence that US manufacturing means less worrying about safety issues. In fact, we are now exporting them worldwide, due to the demand for the safety that US-made products can provide.”
