Puddles The Penguin Is Dating!

Exclusive Ballooning are delighted to introduce the world to Puddles the Penguin’s new friend – Splash!

After being launched in March 2014, Puddles has become everyone’s favourite penguin travelling the world including the famous Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, USA.

Whilst back in the UK this summer, Puddles had been hanging out at Penguin Island at Longleat Safari Park where he met his new friend Splash and they have been inseparable since – will romance blossom?  Their first date will be at the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta which takes place at Ashton Court from Thursday 6th to the Sunday 9th of August.

Puddles was a result of Exclusive Ballooning’s 2014 fifteenth Birthday celebrations where a social media competition was run for people to design a fun character balloon and the winner would see their design turned into a reality. A second competition was also run to name the character and thus Puddles The Penguin was born. The first picture of Puddles on face book reached 5,000 likes within the first few hours and he now has his own website www.FlyPenguin.uk and huge following on social media using #FlyPenguin.

In contrast, Splash has been built in complete secrecy and Exclusive Ballooning were thrilled to be able to make the announcement in the stunning grounds of Longleat House….. the p-p-p-erfect place to introduce our penguin friends!
