Hatch A Penguin
Hatch a perfect penguin chick... then watch your baby with pride, as it grows and grows into a BIG penguin!
Simply submerge the small coloured penguin egg in water. After a couple of days it will slowly break open revealing your new penguin chick pet. Your baby will continue to grow in fresh water, and reach full size after 72 hours.
There are four unique baby penguins to collect, and they all love to slurp water. That's because they are made up of a special superabsorbant polymer - or hydrogel - that that soaks up water like a sponge.
Try charting your penguin's growth on a graph. Simply trace it, and count the squares to determine the area and size of your growing penguin.
Age: 5 +
What you get
Hatch a Penguin. Egg measures 4 (L) x 4 (W) x 6 (H) cm. 4 unique baby penguins to collect - one in each different coloured eggs. A random selection will be chosen for your order.
How does it work
Just like our other growing creatures, Hatch A Penguin is made out of a superabsorbent polymer that soaks up water. The water thirsty polymers perform very important functions in everyday life, and used in everything from baby nappies to environmental cleanup materials!
Once fully grown, dry-out your cute penguin and he'll shrink, ready to be grown in water all over again!
