It first appeared in Pingu and the Strangers. In Pingu's Wish, Pingu sees a magic set in the window of the toy shop and runs quickly home to ask his mum for it, but she promises to give it to him as his Christmas present. Mum puts her plan into operation by first phone Dad to go to the toy shop and buy the magic set. After Dad has left the shop with the gift wrapped magic set, Pingu passes the window and when he sees it is not there anymore. Pingu later went there again in Pingu and the Present, Pingu and the Toyshop and Pingu and the New Scooter.
