Jingle bells . . . all the way

This is where I get into trouble. I was in the local Lowe's looking for some practical household items, but I couldn't help stopping by the Christmas decorations department. They had a display of these penguin jingle bell ornaments with about 20 different varieties of penguins celebrating different walks of life, like motherhood, golfing, nursing, beach bumming, etc. I tried to stick with the most generic Christmas themes, but I couldn't resist the cowboy.

Eight jingle bell penguins, three with green hats, 2 with red hats, 1 with earmuffs, 1 with top hat, 1 cowboy
Acquired: December 9, 2012, Lowe's, Bartonsville, Pa.
Number: 1006 through 1013
Size: 2.5 inches tall
Price: $2.97 each


  1. Hi Donald...Maybe you can help me. I'm trying to find an ornament with two penguins together, both the same size (not parent/child), preferably realistic looking instead of 'country' style, without any phrase or year to it. I found a nice one on, but it was in miniature size and I'd rather have something average-sized. Any idea where I might find one?

  2. ..If they are leaning towards each other, or cuddling next to each other, that would be fantastic...

    1. Sorry it took me so long to see your comment. I don't get in here frequently now that My Penguin Tree is in kind of a low-key mode. I might have something for you, but I have to do a little bit of searching. I'll get in touch via email if I find it.
