Oh, Christmas squid, oh Christmas squid!

At last, the day you’ve been waiting for!!! – here at Te Papa you can finally come and see the colossal squid on display for yourself.

It’s not even 2pm in the afternoon and heaps of people have already come to see her.

Te Papa is filled to bursting with squid fans and squid events so come along if you can this weekend and join in the squid fun.

If you’re too busy Christmas shopping or not even in New Zealand you can still take part. Visit our special squid site and do the Build a Squid game.

You can make your own squid online, give it a name and set it free. And then you can come back and find it again…. I’ve just checked and there are now 422 named squid, and about 320 from New Zealand, all embarked on squiddy adventures.

Personal favourite so far? – Ood from Antarctica!!!

Yep, it’s true – you really can have fun with squid 🙂

    I love my squid – I wish it drifted a little more slowly though and also that you could see more than one of your adventures at a time. Also it would be awesome if you could see other people’s squid. Thanks for the game though!
