The Guinness world record for the Largest collection of rubber ducks was set by Charlotte Lee (USA), who has 5,631 different rubber ducks.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest rubber chicken toss, achieved by 925 participants organised at Gilda's LaughFest event at Rosa Parks Circle in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA.
The event, held in Seattle's Warren G. Magnuson Park, encouraged all families to get their own ducks in a row.
"Getting your ducks in a row is hard, but it's so worth it. We learned that here today," said Cozi CEO Robbie Cape. "Rubber ducks can be pretty slippery, but we managed to corral them all long enough to set the record."
Seattle families and more than 80 duck-wrangling volunteers waddled around and enjoyed a beautiful day in the park as they watched rubber-duck history in the making.
