The original ‘Ponko’ was a promotional soft toy based on photographic studies of Adélie penguins in the Antarctic by Herbert Ponting. He was part of Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s British Antarctic Expedition from 1910–12, and the first professional photographer to go to the Antarctic. Produced alongside Ponting’s film Great White Silence, Ponko is thought to be one of the earliest pieces of merchandise to be sold in conjunction with a film.
