Thanks to a series of movies the penguin is now one of the hottest animals around. From plush toys to animated series, these waddling little fellows are everywhere. For me, I'd pick this clever pop-up toys as a favorite. This Percy Penguin Jack in the Box from Jack Rabbit Creations is old school in its construction, but trendy in its design.
This toy is made of wonderfully vintage materials (not a ton of plastic--horray!) and is a smile-inducing find. The plush penguin will be a new best friend in your house. Percy Penguin plays "Puttin' on the Ritz"when you spin the dial. Ages 18 mos.+ ($32). And you guessed it...no batteries required.
