Pingy is an adorable penguin chick designed for Magis by Eero Aarnio. The designer has always been amused by waddling penguins and Pingy represents his own version. Pingy has a cute round shape and its belly shows that it has perhaps enjoyed too much food. The shape of the head and the profile with the cute beak have the right proportions and the eyes have the realistic almond shape characteristic to penguin chicks. Pingy is waddling and the waddling movement makes it even more adorable. Pingy is the penguin chick both parents and children will like – perfect not only in the children’s room but also in any other space to give a joyful touch.
