Cam loves penguins. I have some penguin sheets for him, now he wants a doona cover.
There are some licensed ones on eBay, but not my style.
He is 4 years old.

Any suggestions are much appreciated. I have had a bit of a browse online, but no luck. We live near Goulburn NSW but hubby works in Sydney during the week.

Would he possibly like the Octonauts bed spread from Target, it has one penguin on it.

Or are you looking for one more like this:

Thanks Racheal!

Can you please send me a link to the Target one?
ETA: Nevermind, I found it. I don't think that is really what he wants.

The Amazon one is devine, but says it only ships to the US :-(

You could try one of the forwarding companies in the US.  Have it shipped there, then they ship it here.  Might make the price too high but it's worth a look.

LOL Ambernut. I think I could have worded that better....

I found this site, sooo cute http://shop.cafepress.com.au/penguin

but no doona covers (for single beds  wink.gif )

Thanks CleverChook. It is quite pricey. He might hate penguins in a few months and paying that price would make me a teensy bit disappointed  cool.gif

Keep your suggestions coming please.

heffalumpsandwoozles- Hmm, maybe I need help with the site LOL.

I am intrigued though if those are actually the product I am looking for. They say they are Duvet Covers (is that a doona?) and the size is twin, queen & King. I am guessing a twin is a double bed size, I am after a single so I don't have to replace the doona (duvet??) too.

Twin is American terminology for single. original.gif

ETA And yes, a duvet is a doona.
