The LEGO Duck is a Wooden Toys set released in 1935. It contains a wooden model of a duck, and was one of the first toys ever made by LEGO. It is also arguably the most popular of the wooden toys ever produced by LEGO. It features rolling wheels and a string with a knob so it can be pulled along.
Unlike modern LEGO sets, this model only consists of one piece, being made completely of wood. It was released at the same time as the Wooden Train. The colours of the duck are an orange mouth, black head, tail, and wings, and a red body. The duck sits on a black piece which stands on four red wheels.
When the wheels move, the beak of the duck opens and closes by means of a cam connected to the wheels, meaning it was made with some other construction elements than just wood.
- When the original LEGO factory burned down, the duck was among the first toys to have its instructions redrawn.
- Only 100 of them were made.
- They were hand made by Ole Kirk Christiansen's work force.
- The LEGO Duck is also seen in The Simpsons special "Brick like Me" on First Church of Springfield's background window.
- The LEGO Duck had two brick-built versions, 2011 LEGO Duck and 40501 The Wooden Duck.
