    I wouldn't recommend the balloons, if they pop a small piece could be ingested besides if they pop they'll scare the crud out of them.

    Honestly? i never did 'toys'.... eventually they'll love to bathe, it's harder with colder temps or no mum. What is the weather like where you are? foraging and being outside is great for them BUT you have to guard them like a hawk and also ensure your not to cold.

    I just gave over 1wk babies some lettuce today, chopped super small and they have grit too. They are with their mama though and foraging around inside the barn, we're still to cold for outside sadly.

    There is a treat duckling sticky that'll probably be helpful....

    My duck has always loved to play with pet toys and baby toys that make crinkly sounds.

    go to the bird section of your pet store. I got mine a mirror with a little bell at the end they LOVE and a little rope toy they love to pull/tug one. a stuffed animal works too. there are endless possibilities :D
