Penguin Race Finally Moves

Penguin Place opened on March 15th 1985 (as Next Stop South Pole), and on that first day we sold 3 Playful Penguin Races.  The price 26 years ago was $12.95.  In the early 90’s the price jumped to $14.95 and as a “Whip Inflation Now” poster child (penguin) the price has remained $14.95 ever since.  To let you know how incredible that is, in 1985 the price of gasoline was $1.20 a gallon.  But, alas we could only keep the lid on the price for so long as we’ve finally raised the price of a penguin race to $16.95.  Still a bargain for all that amazing penguin escalating action and sliding.
