        This penguin ornament is really cute and very special in that it is knit by an artisan in Peru. Feel-good, fair-trade purchase as well. Plan on buying several more for tying on to Christmas presents - as this little penguin belongs to me!

                All the ornaments in this series are very cute. My 5 year old wanted to take them to use as stuffed animals. I am looking forard to putting them on the Christmas tree.

                  Purchased this ornament to decorate a package for Christmas. It is for someone who collects penguins and this can be added to her collection of the same. I am sure she will love its unique shape and will enjoy it in the years to come.
