Welcome to our antarctic penguin colony.
This little friend will keep you up all night with his chit-chat, waddling dance and flipper flapping... A bedtime story will ease the bustle and settle him down. A true nightlight companion for kids, he promises to glow through the whole night.

Our Small Penguin - DIY paperlamp consists of a kit for you to build the model. Either with friends or individually, enjoy bringing to life one more member at your home. Make sure to take a few hours to assemble your OWL paperlamp – best results always require some dedication!

Dimensions: 42cm tall
Difficulty: ●●○○○ / 26 pieces

This paperlamp is a DIY papercraft kit, including a pre-cut paper model and a base with an E14 light bulb socket, an electrical cord with switch and a europlug CEE7 (type C). Other plug options include UK plugs (type G) and EU to US plug adapters (type A). Also included is an assembly guide and an extra practice model.
The paperlamps are made with high quality 160g paper presenting good resistance and durability. A variety of colours is available, so take a look at our colour palette at the end of the slideshow. Please note that you may see the small assembly numbers when the paperlamp is lit, as we mostly use bright coloured paper.
Product language: English only.

Note: Only use LED light bulbs with an E14 fitting. This is a European standard that might not be available in your country (e.g. US, Canada and Japan).

I was a little worried it wouldn't arrive before Christmas because I ordered it right before or on Thanksgiving (can't remember) but it got here a few days ago and I was so happy! It took two weeks from the shipping date to arrive, not to bad considering how far it traveled. It is a gift so I haven't assembled it but I did check the insides to make sure everything was there. It came nicely packaged (bubble wrapped, additional cardboard cutouts inside to keep things in place). I also ordered the lightbulb with it and it came perfectly intact. Also, I had some questions about the item itself and the sellers were very friendly and provided me with plenty of info before I made my purchase. :) I will edit this in the future to comment on its performance :)

Arrived the day before the 1st wedding anniversary (paper). Husband hasn’t had time to make it yet so can’t leave full review on it yet but it came as described and just in time. Didn’t cost me anything extra in customs etc with brexit so that was great. Thanks for getting it to me and looking forward to seeing it built one day!

hatte bisher keine Zeit, zum Zusammenbauen. Sitze seit 2 Stunden daran - Note 6. Man findet auch keine Anleitung in DEUTSCH oder ein Youtube-Video. Was soll ich mit nem Video, wo ein Elefant zusammengebaut wird? Kann mal jemand helfen, wie das verdammte Teil zusammen gebaut wird? Bin richtig sauer - sollte für in 2 Tagen ein Geschenk werden. Für den Preis zu teuer, wenn man selbst noch 5 Stunden basteln muss...


Response from OWL

We encourage people to get in touch with us if they are having trouble assembling their paperlamps and we'll do our best to help them out. We are also available to answer any questions and clarify people about our products before placing an order — we can recommend different difficulty levels for papercraft beginners or more experienced crafters. Sadly not everyone gets in touch with us. We contacted Jasmin after seeing her review to see if we could help out or if she would like to return her purchase, but we received no reply. Regarding the product's language, it is clearly described under the product's details that the language available is English only.
