Pepe - handmade ooak soft sculpture model penguin, by BigFeetBears, 9.5 inches

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Meet Pepe the penguin! He has a lovely, inquisitive, slightly cross-eyed look, and the characteristic slouchy stance of the Humboldt. He is my own design and entirely handmade.

He is made in hand-painted cotton with paper mache feet and glass eyes, set in clay sockets. He is filled with ordinary polyester fibrefill stuffing.

Please note: Pepe is not suitable for children.

I am always happy to ship outside the UK. Please contact me for a shipping quote.

If you would like to see my second penguin, Velma, you can find her here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/464785556/velma-handmade-ooak-artist-soft?ref=shop_home_active_1
