Default making a duck quack

Making a duck pull toy for granddaughter's first xmas. want to make it quack as it rolls. I am thinking of using a piece of metal flexed by a cog mounted on the axle. Any ideas on how to make a duck quake?

Rather than a metal noise maker a wooden clacker might work better. It wouldn't be a quack but the CLACK * CLACK * CLACK would be somewhat like QUACK * QUACK * QUACK. You could make the bill open and close as part of the sound mechanism to add to the illusion. For a real quack-like sound you'll probably need a bellows and some type of reed like a duck call but that does seem excessive for young child's toy.

I was thinking of mounting head on dowel that rides on the cog to make head bob up and down. Same cog flicking a metal whatchamacall it Its trial and error time. Since Eagles loss I will be in shop mourning for the week

You can get the little round push button sound effects that go into the inside of stuffed toys for about $6. Can also get one to record your own sounds.

Anybody remember the push ducks on a stick with wheels that had pieces of rubber glued in the wheels that flapped when you pushed it?

I made a bunch of those when my kids were small. Cut an old inner tube up for the rubber to make the feet.
