When I first saw a rubber bath duck a number of years ago I fell in love with it. It was just so cheery and bright, it immediately put a smile on my face! What fun for children (and adults) to be able to play with rubber ducks in the bath! They certainly have a retro feel to them and will add color and cheer to any bathroom.

A Brief History

And a fun story

Ernie, a character from Sesame Street, popularized the rubber duck in the 80's with his song 'Rubber Ducky' (see below). The Sun newspaper (A popular tabloid paper in the UK) once ran a story saying that Queen Elizabeth II has a rubber duck in her bathroom which had an inflatable crown. After that sales of rubber ducks in the United Kingdom rose by by 80%!

The World's Biggest Rubber Duck?

Want to see the world's biggest one?

Well I don't know if it is the world's biggest, and it is certainly the biggest one I have ever seen at over 50ft! Take a look at the pictures for yourself by clicking on the link below.

Click here to see the pictures.

This one was towed down the Thames river in London and it was so big that Tower Bridge had to open to let it through! :-)

Games To Play With Your Duckys

For a party game how about sticking a small loop on top of each duck, putting them in a bath full of water and giving each child a stick to try to hook them out of the bath with! The child who hooks out the most ducks wins!

You could use the smaller ducks instead of apples for the game apple bobbing (just be careful that small children are always supervised and be aware of choking hazards). You could put one of the small ducks onto a large pile of flour and get the children to put their faces into a bowl of water (used for the apple bobbing) and then try to get the duck out of the flour with their mouth!

You could play a game of hide the duck or do a treasure hunt!

Or you could always have a good old plain water fight with the ones that squirt! Mind the furniture though!

If you can think of any others let me know in the comments section below.

Do You Prefer Yellow Ones?

If you prefer yours in the traditional yellow color these are for you.

Some More Facts And A Bit About Popularity

> These days rubber ducks are usually made with either rubber (obviously) or sometimes from plastic vinyl because it is cheaper to produce.

> Ernie from the children's TV program Sesame Street certainly played a role in popularizing them (see song above).

> As proof of the popularity of this fantastic toy many collectors and enthusiasts now have collections whose numbers reach into the thousands. In 2007 the world record for a collection was held by Charlotte Lee. Her collection had over 5000 in it then! Perhaps it has grown since then.

> Starting out in just plain yellow with a simple design, they are now available in many different colors, styles, sizes and shapes. There really is one for everyone.
