Penguin Christmas Ornament

Black, blue and white or multi-coloured, our penguins come in a variety of sizes and will come alive when lit by LEDs.

Konstsmide Penguins

King of our penguins is 63cm tall and comes from the Swedish manufacturers Konstsmide. It's modelled in acrylic and filled with bright LEDs.

Smaller versions are also available and all come with a transformer and plug.

Konstsmide produce several other illuminated penguins for outdoor and indoor use. They are seen waddling, standing, and laying on the ice, and there's a very sweet depiction of a mother and her baby.

Premier Penguins

Similar acrylic penguins are produced by Premier and are delivered complete with a transformer and cable for immediate use.

Particularly attractive are three colour changing moms and their offspring, blue, red or green that can be bought individually or as a set.

A baby penguin is also particularly cute and they are all house trained, so can be located in the house as well as outside.

Vivid Arts Penguins

As can be expected from Vivid Arts, their penguins are meticulously created from high quality resin.

The Emperor Penguin is tremendously impressive and will welcome your guests with his distinct black and orange plumage. 

For your own penguin, visit the dedicated Christmas Penguins page on GardenSite and pick up a penguin right now.
