Roly poly

I’ve used roly poly to describe a lot of the rotund ornaments in my collection, but these wooden penguins were the originals. Everything about them is big and round from their bodies and heads to their feet and beaks. I never have been able to figure out why two are carrying a Christmas tree and wrapped gift and the other has what seems to be a beach ball. It shouldn’t seem so odd to me though, because a lot of my childhood Christmas memories are from growing up in south Florida.

Acquired: around 1980
Number: 0013 through 0015
Size: about 2.5 inches tall
