From the moon! Just kidd’n.
But seriously, or as seriously as we can get discussing rubber-duckies. I am seeing rubber ducks everywhere lately and not even going out to find one. I stayed a hotel last weekend with my daughters on a short trip. The hotel we stayed at had a pool and were giving out a complimentary rubber -ducky-toy in each room. And just on this very evening, I took the picture below at the hardware store. Hey! It is NOT even Real-Rubber-Ducky.
Which has me leading to ponder the question below:
Why is the rubber-ducky the most popular of all the other water toy animals? Why not the rubber frog? Or the rubber- water-buffalo-toy? You can probably find a rubber-frog or rubber-water-buffalo-water-toy but you may have to go looking for them. If you are looking for a rubber frog, you may want to call that store first to make sure you don’t waste a trip. A water- buffalo-water-toy? I’d say you have your work cut out for you!
Where was the rubber duck invented?
Sculptor Peter Ganine created a sculpture of a duck in the 1940s, then patented it 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. – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubber_duck
