The soft toy is not quite well enough defined but it looks a bit out of focus to me. That said, I think your background blur is actually ok. To really stand out it needs a sharp subject in good focus and the duck is too soft.

Try a more defined target like a person, make sure the target is really in focus and then make a judgement on the background. You are very nearly there so don't lose patience. To get good focus start wit good even lighting too!
