What can you paint a rubber duckie with?

I know this isn't diaper related...
Zulily has these rubber ducks right now and one is black with pink skull and crossbones on it and my sister would love it, only they can't be shipped to Canada (where we live) so I thought I would try to make one. I also thought that personalized rubber duckies would make cool Christmas gifts for lots of people. I was thinking acrylic might work, but would probably start to peel.

Has anyone actually painted rubber ducks before?
Any suggestions on what you think would actually stay?

Acrylic would probably not work. It would peel especially if a kid squished the duckie. I'd check at the craft store for paint especially for painting plastic. (Maybe in the model car section? or model rocket ? ) I know that puffy paint (Fabric paint) doesn't work on plastic. (I painted a rain coat and it peeled! )
Sharpies do work and are availaible now in tons of colors but fade overtime.
