i heard about that on npr! they had a great interview with the scientist. The interviewer expressed surprise that the ducks survived that long, and the scientist said he had checked the ducks out. he got some identical (new) ones shipped to him. first he drilled holes in them, expecting them to sink, but they still floated. then he froze some in his freezer, and pounded on them with a hammer - no breakage. he complimented the company on the quality of their ducks, and they said they didn't want kids to be disappointed because their duck sank in the bath.
long live rubber duckies! (and turtles and beavers and frogs)
