Thanks to one of our Fabulous Finders, we now know that this is a 17 inch Fiesta Daffodil duck.
I’m looking for a stuffed yellow duck with an orange beak. It was sort of a flat duck, so when you put it on a surface it would lay on its stomach with its arms and legs stretched out. It had leather like pads on its feet and soft fur. I can’t remember the brand, and I wish I could 🙁 It would drape over the shoulders, and it had the slightest bit of fuzz on its head. And it was made really well.
I have a friend who is really important to me. We met during a missions trip working in an AIDS camp in the Bahamas. We were just starting out in collage, and she had never really had a best friend before she met me. Her family had traveled all over the world due to her father’s work, so she never really made and held onto any true friends. I felt like God had brought us together, and we became very close.
We got our first apartment together and and have laughed and cried together on so many different occasions. We have been through thick and thin, joy and sorrow. The first Christmas that we shared gifts with each other, I made her a pair of pajama pants, and, as silly as it is, I gave her a stuffed duck. She loves ducks, and a mutual friend of ours used to call us “Stubert” and “Shubert”, so she called the duck “Hubert”. It became a permanent fixture on her bed and, never having stuffed animals to play with as a little girl (she grew up in the Philippines and didn’t have a lot of money), she kind of let her inner child hold on to Hubert.
She was traveling to visit her family, and she decided to take Hubert on the plane and use him as a pillow. I thought people would make fun of her for bringing a stuffed duck on the plane. But it came into great use, that is until she came home, and she didn’t have him in her luggage. She believes she accidentally left him on the plane. She really did love that stuffed animal, and she felt really bad for losing it.
She is such a caring, wonderful person and does brain cancer research in Chicago, and we are once again roommates. I know we are adults, but I would love to give Hubert back to her for Christmas once again. In all of the stresses of adult life, I would love to give her something that makes her feel like a child. I know she would absolutely love it.
I would be so grateful in any way that you could help me out. It would really mean a lot.
