Last year I gave my daughters stocking contents a winter/Christmas theme. This year I'd like to do a penguin theme. So far I have:
Smarties penguin thing in a box with a colouring element
Chocolate penguin lollipop
Chocolate penguin shapes
Penguin beanie ball from the works
Has anyone seen anything that might be suitable?

How old is she?
Baker ross/yellow moon ( same company) have lots of penguin themed crafts and stationery.
Penguin socks?

Boots are giving away a free cuddly penguin with mini club orders (well they were a few days ago anyway!) Got one for my ds it's very cute.

That's not my penguin book? Depends how old she is though. If older then maybe a small book about penguins!

John Lewis had some cute Penguin pjs for girls. There must be penguin tee shirts too?

I saw some nice penguin notebooks etc today. I think Sainsbury's?

Hi thanks for the ideas so far. She is 9 but I have a little one too so will check out boots. Also will look in Sainsbury's for these notebooks today and have a look at the other ideas. I think I remember seeing some penguin socks in Sainsbury's a couple of weeks ago.

A penguin film? Happy feet or a documentary on DVD?

A couple of years ago, Lakeland (I think!) had a wind-up penguin racing set (six little wind up penguins, with a fold out racing course for them). I can't tell you how much fun this was for adults and children. They were very cute. We've lost the box but I've kept the penguins.

This thread is making me wish I had themed my children's stockings! I've already started though so too late. Great idea op!

Penguin socks. Bath bomb. Pack of penguin bars?!

Try Claire's accessories - they have some penguin keyrings, lip balm, earrings, socks etc

Those wind up penguins look brilliant. Some great ideas here.

LED battery nightlight
I get a different shaped one of these for my lot every year.

Also have a look at this: penguin race

and of course: penguin stickers

They are brilliant Heaven. Their little feet flap like mad and we had such fun with them. My very elderly parents (in their 80s) got especially competitive grin and it's a lovely memory.

Last year I got my mum penguin shaped hand warmers, I think they were in peacocks but Amazon would probably do them.

MaryDoll84 Thu 03-Nov-16 12:53:29

Amazon do penguins that 'magically' grow crystals (they usually come in a tree variety) Type 'tobar crystal growing penguin' into the search engine to bring it up.Might be good for a fun novelty gift although probably a tad overpriced for what it is

This is so great! I'm doing a penguin theme this year! There are loads of penguin pyjamas sets out there for girls .

Heavenscent86 Thu 03-Nov-16 13:15:59

I already bought her some penguin pjs as she was desperate. Wish I'd waited now though. Does the penguin nightlight last ShowMe?

VanellopeVonSchweetz99 Thu 03-Nov-16 13:17:15

What a good idea.
All things Pingu would go down well here (mine are 5 & 7).

Ineedmorelemonpledge Thu 03-Nov-16 13:57:17

I put Penguin in the search engine for Etsy and quite a few nice novelties came up op?

ShowMeTheElf Thu 03-Nov-16 14:31:25

Depends what you mean by last: they usually run on button batteries (LR44) so if you buy more batteries they will keep going. It's just a cute fun thing really.

Definitely a Penguin choc biscuit! grin

Primark had penguin shaped make up sponges/blending sponges in their make up dept. They might have penguin lipsalves aswell
