Take them in, but be sure to keep an eye on them!

If you do decide to keep them in the car remember to crack the window so air circulates.

Personally, I would take them in.

As long as you leave your windows open a crack so the ducky can breathe, they are usually ok - IF there's some shade. BEWARE leaving too much space, something flew in my car window and... look what happened to THESE duckies!!!

Whatever you do don't drop them in the toilet unless you have a woody nearby to rescue them...

Rubber Duckies are designed for hot water, they should do fine in a parked car. Be sure they have a bowl of water and some goldfish snacks. Taking them in the store is a bad idea; they tend to break away and make a beeline for the grapes.

well in Michigan it's about to become a major crime if you leave your kids in the car unattended. If you feel your duckies are your kids then you must take them with you....just make sure you take the camera in too.

In New Mexico it IS now a crime to leeave your kids in the car unattended so you prolly better take 'em in and risk thier bad behavior in public.

No. You need to dowse them with lighter fluid and light them up or use a propane torch - but DON'T do this in the car. I would do it before I went to the store, unless I was out of lighter fluid or propane, in which case I would leave the duck at home while I go to the store to get some and then torch it when I got home. I might pick up an air freshener as well. Anyone need anything while I'm out?

Ok - I'll ask if they have any, but you might have to settle for candy.

No, they won't melt, but if you have a convertible, they might get a sunburn

Southern Fried Rubber Ducky!!!
07/06/2006 05:53:51 AM · #25
Well!!!! I'm shocked....and horrified! Agast even!!!

Think I should probably complain to the Society for the Prevention of Yellow Ducky Abuse (S.P.Y.D.A) They have guidelines on their feeding, how they should be treated, exercise they require and appropriate housing.

Tsk tsk tsk ..... leaving poor little yellow duckies in an overheated car!!
