Pingo is a penguin-shaped 35 mm camera. It has fixed focus and no exposure adjustments. It was made for sale as part of a package with confectionery[1][2] made in Denmark by Pingvin Lakrids (now part of the Toms Confectionery Group) and often sold in airport duty-free shops.

The camera's back bears the inscription "Pingvin made by NICKNAME", and it was very probably made specially for Pingvin by the Danish merchandising company Nickname A/S.
