Cute Or Creepy: Zara Home Duck Jug

I've been staring at this duck jug for the past 15 minutes. In that time, my thoughts have spanned a gamut of emotions. Namely "What the...?", "I MUST have it!", "Really, Zara? Really?", "Aw he looks like he's a smiley happy duck!" and "Oh god look at the giganto beak mouth!"

No, really, look at it. All I hear in my head is a terrifying pterodactyl noise when I see it.

Dear reader, it has confused and addled my brain which is already trying to cope with Monday. Is it brilliant? Do I really want it? Or am I just blinded by the giganto beak mouth? In its favour, it has a kitsch retro thing going on - I could totally picture finding this in a charity shop and buying it without hesitation. That's because in a charity shop, it'd probably cost less than a tenner. Zara Home want 5,999 of your hard earned pennies for it. £59.99. That's not working in its favour.

I'm going to lie down in a darkened room to collect myself while you tell me in the comments whether I'm insane or not.


  1. Oh no, Zara what's happened? This is just weird - and surely will look even creepier with liquid in it/pouring forth from it.

    1. But you could say "quack quack quack quack" as you poured, and for some reason I think I would find that very enjoyable.

  2. It's creeping the hell out of me, which makes me feel bad for it, which in turn, makes me feel compelled to buy it so I can give it a happy life. Confused...

  3. If just its beak opened, fair enough. But half its head??

  4. The picture of it with its demonic beak open wide like that actually gave me the heebie-jeebies. And I love ducks.

  5. Step away from the bird. That's just wrong.

  6. It's more like the top of his head is going to fall off, rather than his beak opening! It's like a Pez dispenser!
    I really like the traditional version of these....they always have them in those posh shops along Old Bond Street.
    I like the idea, just not the execution of this one!

  7. Cute... until it opens its beak and then it's like something out of one of my nightmares!

  8. Amazing - love it! But you'd have to think hard about what to put in it. Milk in a glass jug is just so wrong in my mind that it may relate to some forgotten childhood trauma. Red wine? A bit Poe-meets-Beatrix-Potter. I think I'd go with lovely sunny orange juice.

    I want a duck on my breakfast table!
