China nabbed a turn playing with that giant yellow rubber-ducky, the modern “art installation.” It’s fun to have a bright yellow rubber duck as large as a ship in the harbor.

Florentijn Hofman, the designer of the Rubber Duck, signed a deal to “exhibit it in nine mainland cities including Qingdao, Zhengzhou, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Sanya, starting from June 1 in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province,” according to ecsn.com.  First stop Hongzhou for a month, then it paddles to Qingdao in Shandong Province.

Since it was “born” in 2007, the Dutch ducky has paddled in 23 cities waters, in 11 different countries.
