Play-Doh: Mama's Little Ducklings Book  Reg:$7.99 Now:$4.00   (Save 49%)
Mama Duckling has a colorful nest of eggs all ready to hatch, but the night before the big event, the littlest one goes rolling off on its own. In the morning, the eggs crack open and the ducklings waddle after their mom in a search of their wandering sibling. They look high and low, with Mama Duck asking all the creatures they encounter if they have seen the pink polka dotted egg. At long last they come upon the Easter Bunny. He knows exactly where the long-lost (and by now hatched) duckling is hidden! Adding to the fun of this feel-good tale are flaps that lift to uncover surprises—and a glimpse of the runaway duckling hidden in the artwork on every spread. This adorable book is the perfect pick for Easter . . . or any time of year!
