Looks like a bit of fun .
Penguins travel up the moving ladder and slide down the chute to start all over. The Schylling Penguin Race Game requires 1 x D battery , not included. Schylling have included easy assembly instructions. Contains small parts such as race course flags which can be a choking hazard Not for children under 3 years. This traditional game will be remembered by many of the older generation as having a satisfying "clunk clunk" noise as the mechanism whirrs and the penguins complete the course.

My kids where playing with this in a shop last week they loved it. It was about £15 though. Ordered mine cheers

I'm no expert but wouldn't you be better off with this? It says its number 2, the "New improved edition" and is the same price and retailer (looks exactly the same to me though)

Bargain. Classic. Hot.

Ordered thank you

With a bit of luck an expert in penguin racing will stumble across this post, if not the original gets better review scores on amazon. Nice find though paramoreRyan.

Thanks ordered.

Always wanted one of these when I was a kid!

These get very annoying very quickly

My kids love this but the music will drive u insane I promise!

I used to love this when I was little. Fab game! Definitely have to get one for my daughter!

Cheaper here:

Or is that a smaller version? It says it takes 2 AA batteries, but on the pic it says uses 1 "D" battery. I think its just badly listed.

GSA seem to have the penguin race market cornered with 15 options for sale !

Oh we have this, very very annoying, but kids like it.

One of those things that once the battery goes you don replace it!

Banned

I wanted one of these as a kid, lol

We got it for Christmas as my nieces used to love the Dalmation one. Now, could it be more annoying than that? yes!!!! it's ridiculously noisy and irritating and intrusive - but yes, the kids love it!

OMG childhood flashback . What ever happened to those other things that were filled with water, you push a button which blows air in to it making a little fish or something float around a maze lol.

My husband brought one for our children as he had one as a child and it is the most annoying toy ever!!! But the kids love it oO

I deffo have played this when I was younger!

Nice one have to agree when it comes to racing penguins bigger is better. But must add I'm not an expert on the subject.

I used to have one of these when I was a kid, they're great! Just ordered one for my little girl. Thanks Op!

Heavy stuff from another (more expensive) seller on Amazon ...

BEWARE OF CHEAP FAKE COPIES CALLED JOLLY PENGUINS BEING SOLD ON THIS LISTING BY OTHER SELLERS SUCH AS GSA RETAIL, PRICE DROPPED UK, VELOCITY MARKETPLACE, DEAL BOX, BARGAIN BASE, I-TECH RETAIL, VRP STORE, WALKERS TOYS, ETC. THEY ARE ILLEGAL & DANGEROUS AND COME WITH POOR ENGLISH PRINTED ON BOX. TRADING STANDARDS ARE TAKING ACTION. IF IN DOUBT CONTACT THE SELLER AND ASK IF IT IS A REAL SCHYLLING PENGUIN GAME

Yes I saw that too, and also one of the reviews says its titled differently on the box.

Awesome I got one, it takes me back & now I have one to play with my nephew too, delighted

Damn just had to buy it can't live without it.

Yes be aware, you may not get what you expect! I bought this from a similar deal on here before Christmas. I am not sure which Amazon seller it was from but several seemed to have the same feedback that despite being listed as the original, it wasn't. Mine was very definitely a Chinese imitation import, i am sure it takes AA batteries not 'D' as listed above and it is called Jolly Penguin Frisk Paradise!!! I contacted the company to return it and exchange it for the original Schylling version. They offered me a £3 refund. I said no thanks. They offered me a £5 refund. I still said no thanks, I was then informed that the original Schylling version was out of stock (despite still being listed on Amazon at the time). It later disappeared so I eventually took the refund and got my 'frisk paradise' version for £2.98. Yes, it is noisy but my 6yo loved it and played with it endlessly over the holiday. Even 'Gran' enjoyed it and she is far from deaf!

O.M.G I USE TO LOVE THIS GAME! And at that price u cant go wrong, am defo getting one for me! And the kids to play with. (Thats if i let them play with it)

Well I now have this "original Schylling Playful Penguin Race" from GSA Retail, and it's a cheap Chinese copy. Nowhere on it does it use the word 'Schylling' and it's completely different from what's shown on the website - doesn't even use the same battery.

Now there's a company to avoid in future - and a complaint to Amazon (not that they'll be much bothered).

Sorry to hear this get onto amazon if enough people complain they might just do something.
