This is a toy which I requested to be added to dooyoo quite a long time ago now, but never really got around to writing about it. Unfortunately, I believe that this product is no longer available for sale, but I'm going to review it anyway as you may be able to get it off of eBay or somewhere, and also because I love it so much that I really want to talk about it.
I bought this penguin last November from WH Smith at King's Cross Station when I was travelling home from a few days in London. I had no real intention of buying a cuddly toy, as I had too many already, but these penguins were so adorable that I couldn't quite help myself. The fact that they were reduced from £10 to only £3 meant that I had no real reason not to buy one, and so I delightfully purchased one, and promptly named him Penguin. I think that they were reduced by so much because they had over-ordered them, as every WH Smith shop that I passed for the next few weeks seemed to have hundreds of these penguins lining the shelves, and it seemed like such an excessive amount for them to be ordered intentionally. Either way, I was delighted with my own particular penguin.
I have had a few cuddly toys living in my bed for the past few months (yes I know I'm 19, don't judge me), though Yoshi has always been my favourite one. He's very cute and good to cuddle to sleep, but since he is quite solid, I often used to wake up in the middle of the night uncomfortable because I'd rolled on top of him. With this penguin, however, I don't have this problem, as it is just one big soft thing and squashes really easily, so you could sleep fully on top if it and not feel a thing. It returns to its original shape afterwards instantly so you don't have to worry about squashing it out of shape. This also means that the penguin is irresistibly cuddly as there's no real resistance when you hug it, and it's very, very, very soft. Also, as in many ways I am a child, its squishiness makes it very entertaining to play with, as you can practically get his head down into his stomach and fold it in half without much trouble, which makes it look funny and very cute. I have to admit that I spend far too much time playing with my penguin like that and seeing how funny I can make it look.
In conclusion, this cuddly penguin was an absolute bargain for only £3, and if I'd known how much I would love it then I would happily have spent £10 on it. I always cuddle it to sleep and a lot of the time when I'm sitting in my room or on the internet or whatever (it's on my knee now, bless it). I would highly recommend this penguin to anybody, be they child or childish, as it is very cuddly and so cute that the picture above in no way does justice to how adorable it looks. If you manage to get one of these somewhere then you should buy one, as they're ridiculously cuddly and definitely lovable.
