Purple Owl or Purple Penguin

Owl or Penguin?

Owl or Penguin?


Controversy at The Purple Store!

Battle lines have been drawn!

Rhetoric has been hurled!

Things have been said that cannot be unsaid!

Daniel and Tannah believe that this plush animal looks like an owl. Adam and Mark are of the (wrong) opinion that it is a penguin.

Johnny maintains penguin, but he’s also been eating packing peanuts all day. Johnny’s weird; we don’t know.

We leave it up to you, our faithful purple fans, to help us decide what kind of bird this is.

Let us know by answering the poll below, and the winner will officially be named as such at The Purple Store!

Owl or Penguin
Is this an owl or a penguin?

Child-Sized Purple Santa Hats

Adorable Baby Not Included

Adorable Baby Not Included


We’ve occasionally gotten requests for Child-Sized Santa Hats to go long with our regular-sized hats. But since we have to make roughly a billion of them at a time, we wanted to gauge your interest and see if they’re worth making this year, or if we should put them off until next year.

So if you could take a second to answer this one-question poll, we’d really appreciate it!

Santa Hat Poll
If The Purple Store produced CHILD-SIZED purple Santa hats, how many would you actually purchase this season?

Also, if you’re a large group that would be interested in ordering 100 or more, please e-mail us here and let us know so we can make sure we set some aside for you.
