Hi, I’m Sophie and I run The Penguin Patrol, an online penguin themed gift store. My business actually started with an instagram account (and a question) – I always loved penguins, and after a trip to see the penguins at my local zoo, I was let loose in the gift shop and fell in love with an adorable soft toy, which I took home and named Pici Penguin. I started to chronicle his adventures on Instagram, – my friends loved checking in on Pici and his adventures, and one day when I was showing a work colleague the instagram account, they said, ooh my husband loves penguins – do you sell penguins on here too? I didnโ€™t but that planted an idea in my mindโ€ฆ
I had always struggled to find cute penguin toys or gifts that werenโ€™t too cartoony, and I was disappointed that there wasn’t anywhere to go and find cute penguin themed items all in one place, so I decided to create a penguin gift store myself and cater to penguin lovers, and their friends and family looking for gifts for them. As a small business, I wanted to make sure that local makers and designers were supported alongside the big name toy brands, so you will always find something unique at The Penguin Patrol that you might not be able to get anywhere else.
