Abductive reasoning tells us that if it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck. But we’re guessing that you haven’t seen ducks like Tubbz before.
We’re certainly not talking – or even quacking – about your old school yellow rubber duckie, as loved by Sesame Street’s Ernie. Yes, Tubbz are rubber duckies, but these ones are seriously into cosplay – REALLY seriously into cosplay.
The best news? Tubbz have made their way into JB Hi-Fi just in time to make a perfect gift for the pop culture fiend in your orbit.
The range is vast, and there’s sure to be a character to appeal to anybody who’s ever picked up a game controller or classic fantasy novel.
Working backwards, if you’re after a fun gift for the Tolkien lover in your life, check out the ducked-up Frodo Baggins, Legolas, Gandalf the Grey or even Sauron from The Lord of the Rings. We’re not sure that we’d like the latter invading our bath time fun, but others’ mileage may vary!
When it comes to games, Tubbz really cover all sorts of bases. More serious gamer types will be sure to dig the range that plucks characters from the worlds of Borderlands, Destiny, Skyrim and Fallout. Look at that Vault Boy Tubbz with his shock of blonde, erm, down and try not to say, “Aww!”.
Alternatively, why not bring some fight to your bath with Street Fighter Tubbz? Ryu, Ken, Blanka and the marvellous Chun-Li – and nobody’s going to pick on her thighs here, as she doesn’t have any!
If we had to choose though, we’d be squeaking up our bubble time with PlayStation classic Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon Tubbz.
So, if you’re looking for something a little more different and a lot more fun this Chrissie, check out the Tubbz range at JB Hi-Fi.
…or, give a fig instead!
If for some reason the prospect of gifting somebody – including yourself – a duck this Christmas just doesn’t appeal, how about these cool FiGPiNs?
FiGPiNs are wild, oversized enamel badges based on some of the hottest anime, movie, gaming and more IPs out there. All officially licensed, we’ve been busy geeking out over their fab Dragon Ball Super and My Hero Academia pins. Ochaco Uraraka FTW!
If you’re more into gaming and Borderlands 3 is your speed, you’ll likely flip over the Claptrap FiGPiNs – available both in classic and “Mini” sizes.
All FiGPiNs come complete with enough pins to stab into and hold onto whatever you attach them to – tops, hats, bags – plus a super strong backing clip to make sure that your prized possession doesn’t fall off somewhere.
Or, if you don’t wish to wear them and prefer to go the collector route, the main range of FiGPiNs come with very neat plastic presentation cases that are primed and ready to pop on your shelf for display.
