Our very own Penguin Peter

So whos peter you may be asking? is this the new baby no no no, Peter has been around along time. I brought Peter from WHSmiths in London Victoria train station  on my way back from Bristol as felt bad hadn't brought Pants a present after I had been away a few days. Pants was 3 at the time and fell in love with Peter!

This silly Peter Penguin has traveled with us every where we go! He has been to Disneyland Paris, Paralymic Games and generally most places we end up! He is a magnet too, when Pants was in toddler groups peter would often get pinched by other children which usually ending with that child receiving a klout from Pants for trying to take his beloved Penguin.

Although I thought recently Pants hasnt mentioned Peter too much and Ami has taken over loving Peter! Finding her in her cot asleep and cuddling up to Peter has been sweet. But Pants asked him to be washed and placed back in his bed where his sister cant find him! Ami has her own penguin called Penelope but its no Peter.

I find it incredible sweet, this silly penguin has had so much love and its just a stuffed toy! I had a similar teddy called twinkleberry and couldn't be parted! I love that Peter has his own voice and that friends and family even recognise this Penguin and ask Pants about Peter!

Sadly Peter hasn't had it easy, after a wash Peter received a minor burn to his bottom area! Silly mummy when trying to dry him quickly so Pants could take him to his nans put a hairdryer to him! sadly this didnt dry him and caused a ring burn! Pants was divested but that was 3 years ago now and Peter copes just fine! In fact makes him different to other Penguins!
