I’ve got a penguin lover in the family these days so I’ve become something of an expert in sourcing penguin themed errthang for my little boy. His birthday is only a few weeks before Christmas so you can imagine how many penguin gifts I’ve been researching and ordering.
I’ve sourced the cutest and coolest penguin gifts, experiences, PJs, tech accessories, and more to give this Christmas and beyond.
Cute, Christmassy, and perfect for Christmas Even or to give as a penguin gift, my pick of the penguin PJs begin with these cute pairs from Marks & Spencer. On their website they say the blue are Girls and the cream are for Boys but we’ve always had a very unisex approach to pyjamas in our house so I bought both.
I also love these smart button pyjamas from John Lewis, and the selection of matching family nightwear including these kids penguin pyjamas from Very.
For penguin lovers who want to get up close and personal with the real thing, why not book a penguin feeding experience?
From the Welsh Mountain Zoo to Bournemouth Aquarium, West Midlands Safari Park to Edinburgh Zoo, visitors can feed their flippery friends at a number of penguin feeding experiences in the UK.
Penguin Headphones and Tablet Beanbag for kids
A very very lucky boy is getting an iPad for Christmas and what better accessories to go with it than these kids’ penguin headphones and beanbag cushion to rest his iPad on?
Planet Buddies offer a range of super cute child friendly and environmentally conscious tech accessories which raise awareness of endangered species. As well as the adorable Pepper the Penguin items, there’s ‘Noah the Whale’, ‘Milo the Turtle’, and ‘Olive the Owl’ too.
The headphones have volume limits, and are suitable for children aged 3+. They even have wireless Bluetooth speakers in the colourful animal designs. Browse their collections of child friendly audio accessories at: Planet Buddies
Penguin Board Games
There’s not many brilliant penguin board games on the market but here’s some that have made the cut. If I’m really honest, Penguin Pile Up and iceberg game (which I’ve seen go by many different names online) just scream missing pieces to me so I doubt they’d last long in our house.
If in doubt, then the Penguin Pairs cards from Orchard Toys are ideal for younger children.
Penguin Soft Toys
I’m a big fan of Kent-based Keel toys and think they’re one of the best toy brands you can get these days. They’ve got a lovely selection of penguin soft toys:
I also love these penguins, both available from Very. The big one is priced around £25 and the penguin chick £20.
And very rare to find amongst penguin soft toys is this wonderful Rockhopper penguin from the Natural History Museum gift shop (that’s where my son got his beloved ‘Pengy’ penguin toy from which is still going strong after two and a half years).
