January 13th is affectionately referred to as Rubber Duckie Day. The popular toy was first manufactured in the late 19th century where they were made from hard rubber. Sculptor Peter Ganine created a sculpture of a duck in the 1940s, then reproduced it as the floating toy that we know today. The patented design’s sales were over 50,000,000.
Different variations of the rubber duckie exist for novelty purposes. The item is iconic in Western pop culture. It’s linked to bathing. Jim Henson helped further the popularity of the rubber duckie by having his Sesame Street character, Ernie, sing the song “Rubber Duckie” to his toy duck.
