Have a volunteer freely choose and sign a card and lose it in the deck. This educated duck will find the card for you! Lot of comedy routines are possible with the Educated Duck; you can blind fold the duck so that he cannot see the cards. You can make him select the wrong card the first time and after a pep talk, he picks the right card. You can also make him nip at your fingers. Use an alphabet deck and make him spell out the name of a special guest or the birthday child. Dress him up with a small hat or a scarf and the kids will scream! Lots of comedy routines are possible with the Educated duck and it works like a charm. Supply your own pack of cards. For other presentations, the duck can pick letters out of an alphabet deck to spell secret words, etc. This educated duck packs flat and plays big. The base measures about 13 1/2" in length.
