Rubber Duck -- Although rubber squeak toys have been around since the 1800s, no evidence exists of exactly who hatched the idea of the rubber duck. Kids have enjoyed playing with molded yellow rubber duck toys since at least the 1940s. Most often identified as bath playthings for babies and toddlers, their image as the quintessential tub toy was sealed in 1970 when "Sesame Street's" Ernie sang the ditty, "Rubber Duckie."
