Duck Fadar is the ultimate gift for Star Wars fans.
Place the Glow in the Duck in the bath and watch the water-activated
LED bulbs light up and change colour inside the duck. The
light goes out when the duck is removed from the water. May
the force be with you in the bath, pond or pool...
you know a sci-fi fan who owns just about everything Star
Wars related, then the Duck Fadar (be careful how you
pronounce that) rubber duck could be the ideal gift. It won't
break the bank and is sure to brighten up bath times - and
could even be used to entice young children into the bath

of these and sit in the bath with the lights off. About the
best fun you can have in the bath... alone... possibly.
