Weekly Penguin

Weekly Penguin 492

Here's someone who has been impatiently waiting his turn on this arena for a while, but with the tight December schedule, he just had to wait. This is obviously Skipper from Penguins of Madagascar – this time as a wind-up toy. Yup, wind this fellow up and speeds across the floor.

However, as this is another great flea market discovery, my version lacks a component. It seems this version of Skipper was McDonald's 2014 Happy Meal toy and it shipped with a rubber band of sorts. Combined with the wind-up mechanism, this basically would the toy into a penguin riding in a monowheel.

But this speeding skipper sans monowheel suits me just fine!
