Please help my old tired brain recall a beloved childhood toy.

Nostalgia Zone - Does anyone remember a little yellow duck/duckling toy that had a cocoa or chocolate scent? It's from the early 80's and was a hard toy but it was really soft and fuzzy. PLEASE HELP because I can't sleep until I figure this out. Thanks!

Diamonds in the rough...

My Daughter and her amazing 2 children live with me. Granddaughter is two, Grandson is 9 months. Both of them have amazing personalities, they certainly won't grow up unable to express their needs or desires. Long story short they are very intelligent, curious busy children who require a great deal of attention and activity. We are searching for age appropriate, safe, stimulating activities that will enrich their lives while also giving them structure. They are both bright, determined, expressive children who exceed the expected development of other children their age. (I'm not tooting my Grandma horn, they really are quite unique and motivated at a very young age) So anyone else out there with children like this, I would love suggestions, activities, movies, books, toys etc. that would keep them busy, happy and challenged!

Help me identify this toy!

Help me identify this toy and how it works. It's a wooden head on the end of a red dowel, about five inches long in total. Two shallow grooves are cut into the dowel, and there's a short loop of elastic with a bead on it looped through a hole in the dowel. There's also a loop of elastic about eight feet long (i.e. in circumference) with a slightly bigger wooden bead attached to it, although there's a slim possibility that this isn't related to the head part.
