Big Things Come In Small Packages and all though Ducks in the Window and DITW Designs are part of a small family owned American Business, we are part of global partnership to ensure that we offer our customers the very best quality, craftsmanship, and customer support. With the launch of our new rubber duck product line it was imperative that we deliver exceptional quality and unique styles of rubber ducks unmatched worldwide. All our rubber ducks meet both United States and the more strict European Union quality controls and standards. There are two (2) primary quality assurance elements when evaluating the manufacturing process for rubber ducks. First and foremost is the quality of vinyl being used, mailability, and the assurance that it is 100% phthalate free. Second is the assurance that all coloring and paint are led free. All our ducks exceed product requirements and are distributed both in the USA, United Kingdom, and Europe. In addition to the above regulated standards, all DITW Designer ducks are hermetically sealed and are weighted on the bottom so they float up right and prevent water or mold from getting inside.
