Penguin Amnesty Gallery Part 4!
If you’re a newcomer to the blog, you may be wondering why I’m having an Penguin Amnesty of all things. It’s a bit of a long story, but if you read this post HERE, it explains things a little. I’m collecting them for the Post Pals charity and this is all sponsored by the fabuloso (I watch too much Dora The Exlorer…) Parcels For Delivery! Here’s a link to Parcels For Delivery’s official sponsorship page. They’re supporting Post Pals and the Penguin Amnesty. I love ’em!
Couldn’t resist including this link. You HAVE to watch it to the end! I never knew penguins made this noise!
If you’d like to see previous galleries featuring the often mischievous penguins marauding around my home, please follow the links below. You’ll be glad you did!

We have some newcomers to the Brink of Bedlam household, penguins with unusual skills and habits. We’ve had to lock the booze cupboard put it that way….
This little alcofrolic (ie, alcohol makes them frolic shamelessly) penguin was donated by Inky Prints. I’d have preferred them to have admitted him to rehab for a fortnight before he got to our house, but hey ho!
There’s an absolutely wonderful group on Facebook called ‘Team Tubey’ who make free medical accessories for children and adults who use medical tubes. They very kindly offered to help out the Penguin Amnesty project and a lady called Nadda Jabbour made and sent the buttons shown above and the bags shown below. These will all be sent to Post Pals kids who use tubes and can make use of them.
If anyone would like to have a go at making penguin themed buttons there is a pattern HERE you can follow. It looks fairly straightforward as far as I can see, and any help is much appreciated!
Misi Handmade sent me Priscilla thanks to SuperCute Crochet Dolls and they also sent this absolutely beautifully made Emperor Penguin drawstring bag from MinXtures. Thanks so much to them for their lovely donations! By the way Misi, please could you tell me the best way to tell a penguin that she’s actually crap at gardening? Priscilla keeps trying, but she’s murdering my plants! Help!
Kim Lawrence sent 10 Penguin posters to donate to the Post Pals kids, thank you very much! (they aren’t creased by the way, it’s the ice-bergs doing their rippling sort of thing).
Pabobo sent the Penguin Amnesty five Lumilove Penguins, they glow in the dark and erm…do circus tricks. It doesn’t say that on the packaging you know! *nods knowingly* I should imagine they’re very comforting penguins on long dark nights. You can find more about them HERE.
So there you have it! An updated Penguin Amnesty gallery! As Parcels For Delivery is officially now supporting PostPals, they are also accepting penguin donations, so if you’d rather send donations to them rather than me, feel free. The postal address is on their sponsorship page which is at the top of this post. Alternatively you can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to supply my details re. posting penguins.
Please do consider supporting the penguin amnesty, whatever you have that is penguin themed and suitable for a child, please do send it our way! We’re accepting penguin toys, penguin clothing, penguin pictures, penguin books, anything penguiney or arctic themed! The only line I draw is that we don’t want ‘real’ penguins. The zoos are rather possessive over their penguins and frankly I don’t have room in the bath.
Thanks so much for reading and keep your eyes on the gallery as more and more penguins are collected for Post Pals! Thank you!
