I have a rubber toy, I have had it for a while now, and it still has a strong scent. Is it normal for the smell to last this long? Is there maybe something wrong with it that I should be worried about?

It's not uncommon for rubber toys to smell forever, including some TPR rubbers. We had a TPR toy that would lose its scent (somewhat) if it was left out on the shelf, but once it was packed in its box for a few days the smell came back.

Good to know, I still like my rubber toy but was a little worried.

The chemicals used to produce them should worry you.

If you're using a toy that has a smell, please use a condom!

Toys that smell are usually, but not always, made from unsafe materials. The smell is "off gassing," meaning it's releasing chemicals, which may or may not be dangerous (pthalates don't have a smell, but they tend to be in toys that do have a smell).

If you want to stay away from smelly toys in the future, look for non-porous toys like pure silicone, metal, glass, or hard plastic .
