This Weekly Penguin has been ready waiting for this day for about six months now and I'm delighted to finally share this little guy with you all. The moment I saw this, I immediately checked 'which day is the Halloween on this year?'. And yup, when Weekly Penguin Day and Halloween collide, this is the perfect fellow to feature.
Meet Pen, a Skelanimal by Toynami – a cutesy-spooky skeleton animal plushie. I knew these were a thing – they are very eye-catching in the plush toy isles – but it wasn't until about six months ago that I discovered there was a Skelanimal penguin! As a lover of penguins, horror films and combinations of cute and macabre, I realised right I way I needed to adopt one.
And in case you were wondering; no Halloween isn't much of a thing in Finland, despite all marketing wishing it was. That said, I'm a huge horror fiction buff and I welcome all and every excuse to celebrate horror iconography – from film and games to music and penguin plush toys.
So, from us at Penguin DT with the help of the adorable Pen;
Have a spooky Halloween, everybody!
