"Now Harry, you must know all about Muggles. Tell me, what exactly is the function of a rubber duck?"
Arthur Weasley to Harry Potter[src]

A rubber duck is a Muggle toy, shaped like a duck and used for recreation in a bathtub. They apparently did not exist in the wizarding world, or were simply uncommon, as Arthur Weasley once asked Harry Potter what their function was.[5]


During the 1985–1986 school year, a rubber duck was on a desk in the Muggle Studies Classroom.[1]

During the 1990–1991 school year, Professor Arif Sikander taught his seventh-year Muggle Studies students about rubber ducks.[2]
