Rubber duckies were first made in the late 1800’s, when rubber began to be used on a mass scale. They became wildly popular during the 1940’s, when an estimated 50,000,000 of them were sold.
Yellow rubber ducks got another boost when the late Jim Henson, the brainchild behind The Muppet Show, sang a song called Rubber Duckie, as the voice behind the Sesame Street character named Ernie.
