The sound it makes is vaguely reminiscent of the Mario Death Sound.

Deploy the Penguins!

Seriously, having a couple of dozen of these suddenly pop up from the floor in a large room (lobby, open plan office, …) would be nice.

Just what I was looking for! Waugh!


#5

What’s on the telly then?


#6

To be specific, it’s a kinetic-energy-bomb. Similar to a stick bomb or the paired ball drop.



#7

A mention of Mario and none of the penguins from 64?


#8

But is it TSA-approved?


#9

That’s probaby why I made the association in the first place.

Someone wants to violate the Ottawa Treaty when they grow up. In an adorable way, of course.


#11

No way! They’re gonna have so much fun with all the Penguin Bombs they confiscate!


#12

Well that will keep a kid’s attention for moments.


#13

Want. Want. Want.


#14

Instant Pingu !


#15

Cool. I’ve seen similar things made out of card used for direct mailings; the difference being they expand as soon as they’re removed from the envelope. Pretty memorable.

Tiny-finger penguin pinch!

Oooh, nice Pengin! I’ll trade you my Chu-chu Nezumi for it!
