Kid's toy - Murdoch the Penguin


This children’s toy is called Murdoch the Penguin. I named him after Howling Mad Murdoch from the 1980s American TV show The A Team. The A Team were a group of ex US Army who were wrongly convicted of a crime during the Vietnam War. They fled to LA where as fugitives they worked together to fight oppression or injustice. It was brill. Mr T ‘I aint getting on no airplane’. Best tv theme song too.

Murdoch is made from a soft, black needlecord with a cotton spotty tummy.

He stands at approx 30cm (inc those yellow feet) and is filled with hypo-allergenic toy stuffing. He’ll happily sit anywhere but no draughts... it’s not good for his constitution.

There is a matching hot water bottle too – please see separate listing. Makes a great gift for children, grown-up kids and animal lovers.


Washing instructions: No washing machine for him - those feet would shrink up a storm, you can dab him with a damp cloth but beware it does tickle.
