Someone’s Found a Warm Place to Spend Christmas Eve

Hallmark’s Petite Penguins series has perfectly captured cuteness on a miniature scale.  I’m very happy to say that 2021’s A Snuggly Stocking is no exception.

This year’s penguin is hiding out in a stocking.  Okay, so maybe hiding is the wrong word since his head and flippers are peaking out over the stocking.  He’s got a lavender scarf around his neck.  The stocking itself is red with green trim and white snowflakes on it.

At least on the front.  The back of the stocking is plain.  Maybe that’s because that’s where the copyright information and series marker are.  It is already hard to see them, but it would be even harder if the design were paint back there.  But it does look a bit odd when you turn it around.

But from the front, this is another cute addition to the miniature penguin series.  The idea of a penguin snuggled down in a stocking is just so warm.  I almost feel like I’m snuggled up in something just looking at it.

This is one of Hallmark’s miniature ornament series, so the entire ornament is just over an inch tall.  But that makes the detail included that much more impressive.  The expression on his face, for example, is wonderful.

Being a stocking, the ornament isn’t designed to be set out.  However, when you go to hang it, you’ll find that it hangs at the perfect angle.  The stocking looks like it is hanging on a mantel, but the penguin is still completely upright.

A Snuggly Stocking really is a cute ornament.  If you are looking for something small to add to your tree, be sure to check it out.
