Penguin Youtube Page

September 15, 2013

In trying to show the folks at home what some of our moving, singing, dancing and waddling penguins are like in action we’ve decided to make our own Penguin Gift Shop Youtube page and include links to these video’s embedded in the specific penguin items description.  All of which makes answering the questions as far as what our new Singing / Dancing Happy Birthday does (featuring Rose and Greta) and what our incredible dancing Penguin CineSpinner does (courtesy of the Buzzcocks).  All check out our very fun video Rose Makes The Penguin Race Go Wee!

Singing / Dancing Penguin Graduate Is Back!

April 27, 2011

You know it must be getting close to that time of the year with the annual arrival of our Singing / Dancing Penguin Graduate. You and your friends will be astounded and amazed when you see and hear what this happy 15″ tall penguin grad does when you squeeze his flipper. Just stand back or join in as he sings and dances “If You’re Happy and You Know It”.  His song goes on for about a minute, and he does all the corrct movements to the lyrics, including flapping his wings and even jumping up and down.  After a couple of choruses you’ll be happy and you’ll know it too. Simply perfect for the penguin loving grad of all ages. Penguin requires two AA batteries (not included).

Perfect Penguin Song

September 24, 2010

The Penguin Post has written about many penguin related topics this past year and even music related topics have crossed this blog,  but never before have we written about a singing penguin. Well, to be honest, Ricky The Rockhopper Penguin is squawking rather than singing like a bird, but by ‘eck is it a cracking tune that he has put his voice to! Ricky, who lives at London Zoo, was persuaded to put his tones to reel by Leeds-based trio G.U. Medicine. The band had written the track Ice Cold about their love of the alcoholic tipple Jagermeister, and when Ricky turned his ears to the number during a break from swimming with his penguin pals, he was hooked by the killer riffs and decided that he wanted a piece of the action. When City Nights was sent the video of the collaboration to watch it turned afternoon drear to office cheer. “Ricky certainly wasn’t microphone shy,” G.U. Medicine chap Ryan Senior revealed. “In fact, he tried to eat it! He squawked his vocal part like one of the true greats!” In honor of this stonking, lively thumper of a song, which could be the best rock collaboration since Aerosmith teamed up with Run DMC, City Nights has hooked up with Jagermeister and we have three goodie-bags to give away which are full of Jager-goodies. To be in with a chance of winning one, simply send an email to with your name and address.

Put ‘Penguin pop’ in the subject box.

Closing date for entries is Wednesday, September 29.

Now that Ricky has had a taste of the rock n roll lifestyle, we reckon that he might like another crack at the recording process and have come up with a few songs that might just fit the beak, erm we mean bill…

1 Simply The Nest – Tina Turner

2 Mull of Kintyre – Wings

3 The Birdy Song – The Tweets

4 Like a Penguin – Madonna

The band with Ricky the Penguin
