The Emperor Penguin is an extraordinary bird! Did you know that it can withstand temperatures below -50 degree C? If the penguin is unable to fly, he is, however, an outstanding diver whose streamlined body is perfectly suited to swimming. It spends most of its time in icy water foraging and can dive to great depths (up to over 500 m). The emperor penguin lives in colonies that can include thousands of individuals.
Each year, it reproduces on the ice floe and lays a single egg in May, which the male incubates on the top of his feet while the female returns to sea to feed. The transfer of the egg to the male's feet is a very delicate moment because any contact with snow and ice would be fatal for the egg. To fight against the cold the males regroup and hug each other, alternating their position between the center and the outside (this is called 'turtle behaviour').

For almost 25 years now, Papo has been helping younger and older children to develop and to discover the world around them. Childhood is a time of dreams and adventures, and this was what we had in mind when we decided to create, invent, innovate with a wide range of animals or characters. One constant factor which has not changed over the years is quality (the quality of the sculptures and of the materials used) which has always been our watchword and will remain so.
