Moose of the week: get stuffed.

This Christmas, seeing as we're all a bit Moose Mad, we'd like Moose stuff for gifts.

Maybe some ideas here?

Moose Poop Earrings - Bronte would suit these

A new Moose costume for Victor as he's worn out his old one (maybe)

Moose costume

Or how about this fetching hat for Jonas?


Or how abouts this - moose friendly (less stuffing going on)

Penguin is on his way home

Remember the little penguin who got lost and ended up in New Zealand?  Well, after many donations from well meaning individuals all over the world to help fund his voyage, the little man is finally on his way back home to the south.

Go Happy Feet.

Penguins with arms

We love penguins.

This week, penguin of the week takes a break as they are all off on holiday in Tenerife and they all have their Out of Office on.  Here's a nice picture of Penguins with Arms, taken from this website that made us chuckle a bit

Penguin of the week: Pondus

Speak to any Dane born in the seventies and it is pretty certain he or she will remember this little penguin called Pondus who used to wear a red scarf and live at Copenhagen Zoo.

What most will not remember is that the series of photo books that were published were done by a photographer called Ivar Myrhøj. He made 4 books from 1966-69.  The series of Pondus books was even translated into English and we were super surprised to find that old English copies of this books now sell to collectors for quite a handsome sum of money.

What even less people in Denmark know is that Pondus the Penguin was also a mascot for a Canadian messenger firm in 2005.  He got around, did our Pondus.

Pondus was also the mascot for Danske Bank back in the day and we all had one of these money banks in the shape of Pondus.  The Scandinavian bank in the UK ("Northern Bank") has resurrected little Pondus and he is now the mascot there also. 

Pondus-keramik2 Pondus, you are truly worthy of being Penguin of the Week.  But mainly because you used to come along to birthday parties and eat hotdogs and stuff.

Penguin of the week: Tickle me Elmo

We never quite realised just how obsessed you guys are about penguins.  We have been inundated with your favourite penguin stories and clips and feel we must therefore keep the Penguin of the Week open a bit longer.

Last week, Lance the Penguin featured.  Poor Lance is stuck in New Zealand.  This week he’s still stuck in New Zealand (surprisingly few ferries to Antarctica this time of year).

This week, we’re mostly liking the old slap-clip

But penguins do sound funny when tickled:

Penguin of the week: Lance

A penguin (let's call him Lance: it's a nice name) decided to go on an adventure from his usual hot(cold) spot of Antartica and ended up in New Zealand: 2,000 miles away. 

Poor Lance:  he thought he'd get picked up by the authorities for a free ride back to the South, but not so:  they're leaving him stranded.  An Emperor penguin amongst the tiny blue piddly little penguins of New Zealand, alone and warm.  What poor Lance thought was a trip away from the darkness (it's 24 hour darkness at the moment in Antartica) has ended up being his downfall.

It's a bit like grabbing one of those deals with a cheapo airline thinking you're going to Stockholm and they drop you off in Northern Sweden at a cattle shed of an airport instead. 

Lance is our Penguin of the Week.  We salute you, Lance - that was quite a swim.
