John Lewis is already selling Monty the penguin cufflinks and onesies

Store capitalises on Christmas advert cheer

John Lewis's latest Christmas advert dropped this morning, with the nation squeeing with delight as a penguin was saved from a lonely Christmas by a boy with the ability to source an amorous female penguin at short notice.

If you're looking for a memento from the advert to cherish forever, the department store has more than got your back.

Its website already has 39 Monty & Mabel-related items on sale, including:

A £95 45cm plush Monty toy with an expression of abject fear

Cufflinks for a festive business casual look

An admittedly pretty cute penguin onesie

An entire Monty & Mabel duvet cover and pillowcase set though?

Penguin magic face cloth (I don't know what this is)

Literature 'based on the John Lewis advert'

£35 scarf

Monty & Mabel material (in fairness – any excuse to mill around the calming haberdashery section)
