Ducks are cute, they are easy to find (anywhere near water) and they interact with you, (especially if you have food) so it
is no wonder that the Duck is a common favourite animal.
in the world have collections, usually they start with just a few things, this gradually grows, and before they know it they
have a whole room dedicated to their collection!
my collection didn’t start with the “rubber ducky” around 1/4 of my collection consists of them. Many people
all over the world collect rubber ducks, especially as there are now so many different styles of the classic “rubber
ducky, in my tub” bath toy.
duck came about early in the C19 and was made out of hard black rubber. It was invented for the simple reason that children
like to play in the bath, and they also like little cute baby animals. There is not any known history of who “invented”
it; there is no patent for the original rubber duck and no story about a small toy maker – but they are here and here
to stay – what family bathroom could be complete without one?
are collectable ducks made from everything from china to wood and can be found everywhere from garden centres to ebay.
