Great Duck!

published

We have had this duck for over five years and it still works. Haven’t even changed the battery yet, in fact I can’t seem to get the cover off so maybe that’s why it’s so watertight. Having seen the other reviews where the duck has failed early on, I’m wondering if they didn’t tap it hard enough to get the display to come on as I’ve found it hard sometimes to turn it on after a number of years. Overall I’m still very happy with the duck!

Purchased in May 2014.

The perfect bath time accessory

published

We love our thermometer. Everyone in my family uses it. Bubs also loves to use it as his bath toy.
I get the perfect temperature all the time and it also comes in Celsius and Fahrenheit so it’s universal.
I love the fact it’s an adorable floaty toy also.
It’s definitely Value for money.
I have purchased every mum to be that I know one of these! Love it.

Purchased in July 2018 at Baby Bunting for $16.00.

I love this duck and so does my little one, he loves to chew on it in the bath
Its been 8 months of knowing we've got the right temperature in the bath as I usually make my own baths warm its good to know we've got a nice temperature

Died in less than a month

published

We found this bath thermometer very useful while it lasted. It assisted us in getting the perfect water temperature for our newborn. But it only lasted less than a month before it died. We replaced the batteries but it remains dead. Looks like water has gotten into it. Very disappointed as a product like this should be water proof.

RUSTING BATH THEMROMETER

published

As title suggests, this rusts. A replacement is being sent our by oricom (on the basis that I give then my cc details in case I dont send back the faulty one)
They wouldnt provide their cc details to help get the rust stain off the bathtub.
They responded quickly though and we will see what happens.

They replaced it and the same thing happened.
Seems to be when the circuit is closed, it is getting consumed.

Life time = 3months and that's it.

published

As title shown,
Bought few oricom product for my newborn baby and one of it is this bloody thing and it only lasts for 3months and dead.
Replaced battery, no hope....
And the FS300 infrared device also lame... the temperature reading just inaccurate.
I need to buy another thermometer that is for armpit one, now that FS300 is sitting in the cabinet wasting storage space.

Perfect until we replaced battery and water got in it

published

Used for 2.5 years and perfect. Loved the product until yesterday we changed the battery for 1st time (I know awesome right) and I went to use it tonight and all the numbers were going crazy and I then realised water had got into it. Was most upset. But it had a great run.


Worked perfectly for two years. Only just stopped working

published

Absolutley loved our
'Thermo duck'. It served us well for 2 years and finally died the other night. I will be buying another if i can source one in my town. We had no issues with the battery cover coming off. After 2 years water finally got into the display. I think 2 years is very reasonable.

Using this every night

published

I've used this for 3 months with no issue at all. It's shaved time off bath time trying to find the right water temperature and give me piece of mind. I have a forth month old so she hasn't started chewing on it yet, so I can't comment on durability of the plastic cover over thermometer display.

Terrible

published

Battery cover came off in the bath and my baby nearly swallowed the battery. Extremely unsafe.
Purchased in sept2016 baby " discovered " it in April and in the tub was able to work off the battery cover in the tub with his teeth. Battery cover hard to replace and lock in so thermometer works.

worked twice

published

This unit worked great the first 2 times we used it. The third time the temperature said the water was 37 degrees but the water cold to touch so clearly wrong. Next day the unit was all fogged up and opened up the back to find the battery really rusty.

disappointed

published

We bought this temperature duck to use at bath time and initially it worked great. The temperature was easy to read and we loved the flashing red light when bath water was too hot. But sadly after 12 weeks it has stopped working properly and often flashes hot when the water is obviously cool to touch. It is not the battery as the display is lit well and always readable, so something must be happening in the sensor. I would still recommend this to friends though as mine may be faulty.
flashing red alert to water that was hot enough to scald
didn't work for long...3 months

Questions & Answers

Sam

I have just found orange liquid around the base of the duck, opened it up and the batteries seemed to be fine. What could this be? I am very anxious as my newborn baths with the duck every night and I am very concerned about her health and wellbeing.
