This is very cute. My wife LOVES penguins and their cousin, the PUFFIN!

I like that you left the mechanism exposed as part of the motion. 2 shows for the price of one!
The “rocks” are very realistic.

Great project!

Somehow, it reminded me of my ex-wife’s kids….. “nuh-un” yeah-hun” nuh-un” “yeah-hun”.... although this is much cuter. Great work and Puffins finally getting some recognition.

This is wonderful. You must enjoy making these automata and I don’t blame you because they have always fascinated me.
