We thought we would hook you up with some last minute Valentines gifts for the geeks you love. While we have shown you plenty of rubber quackers in the past, I Rub My Duckie goes one step beyond its call of duty. Sure it is pink, has a feather boa and Swarovski crystal on its beak, but it can also take care of those sore muscles after that nice hot bath. The massager has a motor encased in its waterproof bod that you can turn on and off with a back squeeze, and runs on 2 AA batteries (not included.) At a size of 12.5cm x 11.5cm x 8cm, the birdie buddy can be yours for $14.95.

Residents along the Loire River were treated to what has to be the largest rubber duckie on the planet during the recent le Lieu Unique and Biennial Estuaire. Created by artist Florentijn Hofman, the bird is constructed of inflatable, rubber-coated PVC and has its own pontoon and generator. At a size of 26 x 20 x 32 meters, Hofman claims that there is no political connotation, but rather “relieves mondial tensions as well as define them.” Be that as it may, that would be one scary quacker if you didn’t see it coming. (Note the size of people to the right of the duckie.)
