Description

The history of the rubber duck is linked to the emergence of rubber manufacturing in the late 19th century. The earliest rubber ducks were made from harder rubber when manufacturers began using Charles Goodyear’s invention. As a consequence, these solid rubber ducks were not capable of floating, but instead were intended for use as chew toys.

Sculptor Peter Ganine created a sculpture of a duck in the 1940s, and reproduced it as a floating toy, of which over 50,000,000 were sold.

Jim Henson popularized rubber ducks in 1969, performing the song “rubber Duckie” as Ernie a popular Muppet from Sesame Street. Ernie frequently spoke to his duck and carried it with him in other segments of the show. On a special occasion, Little Richard performed the song.

C. W. McCall’s hit song Convoy (and the movie and novel it inspired) are narrated from the viewpoint of a character who replaced the bulldog hood ornament on his Mack truck with a bathtub toy and used the on-air handle of “Rubber Duck”.

You must be quackers if you dont buy this cute little pendant!
