About This Quiz

The rubber duck is one of those things that you probably never think about. They're so ubiquitous they just seem like a thing that's always been there. But of course, they do have a history that dates all the way back to the 1940s and the rise of rubber manufacturing. Once we'd started making things out of rubber we couldn't stop. We made ducks!  According to the LA Times, they made 50 million of the little guys. That's a lot of quackers. But that's also a heck of a lot of baths that got slightly more fun.

While the traditional rubber duck is that iconic little yellow friend we all know at a glance, it's by no means the only rubber duck out there. The mighty duck has changed with the times and a lot can happen in about 80 years. So sure there are still a ton of little yellow ducks in the world, but there are many other kinds to suit everyone's needs and whims. Some are fit for baths, some are just toys, some are goofy little things no one would have ever thought of. Do you have any idea what kind of rubber duckie you might be? Take the quiz and see!
