You get to name this penguin plushie and tell us what penguin likes!
Our newest style of penguin reminds us of the Little Blue Penguins we saw at the Royal Albatross Centre in New Zealand. Little Blue Penguins are the world’s smallest penguin. In Dunedin, they come tumbling out of the surf, make their way over the sand and rocks, and wait for the others to arrive before they head to their burrows.
Jenya made this adorable, big ball of fluff from ultra-soft, good for cuddling, faux fur for its blue and white body. She hand-embroidered the eyes and used a traditional technique to attach the wings. There are no hard pieces – nothing to scratch or choke on. She used black tricot for the black, glossy feet and beak for better waddling and eating. And he’s full of hypoallergenic, flame-retardant holofiber and love.
This penguin plushie is approximately 10 inches tall and 6 inches wide with a 9.5-inch resting wingspan. He is about 17 inches in circumference around the belly – just the right size for squeezing. When you adopt your penguin, $7 from the adoption fees will be donated to the Royal Albatross Center in New Zealand. (Also available at our Etsy shop.)
