Pudgy Penguins sold 1M plushies in 12 months, says CEO

More than a million Pudgy Penguin toys have been sold over the past 12 months, according to the CEO of the nonfungible token (NFT) project, Luca Schnetzler.

On May 13, the founder of the popular Pudgy Penguins NFT project revealed that sales have soared to over a million in the past year as it continues expanding into retailers around the globe.

“Who would’ve thought that the Consumer Crypto revolution was going to be led by fat, flightless birds,” he exclaimed.

The sales milestone follows the May 12 announcement that Pudgy Toys with Pudgy World were now available in the United States retail giant Target.

Pudgy Penguins is a popular NFT collection created in 2021, featuring 8,888 colorful penguin avatars.
