thank you Monty ;-)

We're selling more Penguin Kits than ever this Christmas - John Lewis have definitely ordered more this year AND customers have gone penguin bonkers on our own website too!
The Monty advert definitely means Penguins are at the front of people's minds when out shopping....
....especially when they are buying snacks to keep them going through their mammoth kit-making weekend ;-)
