Many tourists visit Hong Kong to see the Rubber duck. It is because the duck is not only huge compared with the ordinary duck we have seen, but also because the Rubber duck has reminded us of the enjoyable and free childhood.

Nowadays there is a huge rubber duck swimming in Victoria Harbor in Hong Kong in China,Guest Posting which has attracted much attention. It is said that more than 300 thousand tourists had visited Hong Kong and expected to take photos with the huge Rubber duck until May 2ond in this month. It is not only because the Rubber duck is huge compared with the ordinary duck we have seen, but also because the Rubber duck has reminded us of the enjoyable and free childhood.

The huge rubber duck is 16.5 meters high, 19.2 meters long and 16.5 meters wide. It is all yellow except its red mouth and dark eyes. When it is swimming in the Victoria Harbor, the scene is just like that the rubber duck is on a competition with the ships around her. It is so huge that it is outstanding out of all the ships and attracted tourists’ eyes because of her unique color and body. I come up with an idea. May be the rubber duck can be more beautiful and fashionable. She can wear a cap like the Donald Duck. A cheap chain or the gorgeous beads from the wholesale beads can be added to the cap and make the duck charming! Perhaps this charming appearance will attract more tourists. May be I can tell the idea to the father of the yellow duck!

The father of the huge yellow duck is Florentijn Hofman, a man who is 36 years old from Netherlands. Florentijn Hofman has begun to design the yellow rubber duck since 2001. He hopes to share the pleasure and happiness to the people all over the world through the yellow rubble duck. After he entertained this idea he bought a map and marked the places where the duck would travel and the route she would swan. It was not until 2007 the first yellow rubber duck was created. Hofman took her to visit Saint-Nazaire in France, St. Paul in Brazil, Auckland in New Zealand, Osaka in Japan, Sydney in Australian and some other cities all over the world.

The yellow rubber duck is so huge. It is not easy to handle. May be most of you besides me are curious about the aim of making the yellow rubber duck! Having researched some of the information, I get the result. The yellow rubber duck is the symbol of friendship and peace. Hofman said that to the rubber duck, there is no nationality, beyond the Frontiers, no political connotation, and no discriminations. To her, we are a family all over the world. The yellow rubber duck is the symbol of friendship and peace. This is the meaning that Hofman give to her. He hopes the duck can be a connection of different counties and deliver the pleasure and happiness to people.

I believe that most of us ever had a bath with the yellow duck when we were kids. Many tourist go to visit the yellow rubber duck from remote ways because they want to see the “toy” that remind them of their memorable childhood. The Victoria Harbor is like a huge swimming pool. The yellow rubber duck is swimming in it. It may be strange that the father of the yellow rubber duck do not like the duck at all. Even when he was a kid, he never had a bath with the duck toy. After he created the yellow rubber duck, many people presented gifts related to the duck to him. But he thinks that the appearance of the duck is ugly. He said he just liked the symbol and the meaning of the duck.

It is said that the huge yellow duck will remain in Hong Kong until June 9th. If you are interested in it, you can go to have a look!
