How Much ?
The toy which sells from £12.oo for the 26cm version all the way up to £95.00 for the 75cm is currently selling on ebay for upto £459.00. Yes that’s nearly £500.00 for a stuffed toy, for £500.00 I personally would want a real life dancing (Happy feet dancing penguin). However joe public can’t seem to get enough of these over priced soft toys, and some astute ebay sellers are making a nice easy profit.
