Those of you who received our Summer newsletter may remember we included a photo of Cornish Pisky Pals hiding among hydrangeas. How many Piskies could you find?

The below Cornish Pisky Pals all enjoyed hiding in the summer newsletter photo.

Koska, named after the Cornish word for sleep was sleeping soundly among the flowers.

Izzy, dressed in shades of purple is feeling very pleased with herself to have hidden so well.

Sam, our farming Cornish Pisky Pal was enjoying a much needed rest after an early start to the working day.

Katie, dressed in pink was pleased to hide in a colour co-ordinated flower.

Hero, managed to hide the colours of the rainbow.

Ailla, named after the Cornish word for most beautiful, enjoyed hiding in such a beautiful place.

Demelza discovered hydrangea flower to bounce rather well and enjoyed trampolining.

If you found seven Cornish Pisky Pals hiding, well done!

Posted on Leave a comment

There are lots of ways to enjoy piskies this summer. If you are lucky enough to be in the West of Cornwall we have two different Pisky Trails in Coverack Village, the first is available daily from 15th July until 10th August. The Piskies then regroup, some have their own summer holiday, others are out hiding in different places in Coverack every day from 12th August until 6th September 2021 for the late Summer Pisky Trail.

You can buy your Pisky Trail (£2.50) from Coverack Village Stores or The Old Mill Shop in Coverack, this will guide you to the piskies hiding in the Village. No need to book, complete the Pisky Trail in your own time, space and pace! All piskies are behind glass and we ask you don’t touch the area around the pisky to help keep everyone safe.

Our Cornish Pisky Pal Summer newsletter is now available, those of you who have signed up for our newsletter you should have received it this week, please let us know if you have not.

The newsletter updates you on our two new Cornish Pisky Pals. Steren is our new little Cornish Pisky Pal for 2021. Steren is the Cornish word for star, thank you to Sally who suggested the name on Instagram. Dressed in Teal and Purple, Steren loves the night sky!

‘Hope’ is a limited edition Pisky, dressed in Rainbow colours, starting with red shoes and finished with a purple hat. Just one batch of these little Piskies has been made and when they are gone they are gone, our stock is down to single figures now! (Hero was a new Cornish Pisky Pal from 2020 who is also dressed in rainbow colours but in a different order. Starting with purple shoes and finished with a red hat!). Hope is only available from our website and Pisky HQ.

Through the Summer, Pisky H.Q. will be open by request to buy Pisky products. We have made some safety alterations to keep us all as safe as possible, transactions will take place in the under cover area outside Pisky H.Q. Our complete range of Pisky products are available: from every little Pisky character, Pisky book, pisky accessories and much more!  Please get in touch to arrange a mutually convenient time to visit Pisky HQ., situated near Coverack on the Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall.

Our Summer newsletter includes a photo of some Piskies hiding in hydrangea flowers, obviously we are not going to tell you just yet how many Piskies are hiding! However our next blog will give you the answer. Our Pisky story reveals one of the Piskies favorite summer fruits.

Pisky Forever Homes Competition!

Posted on Leave a comment

We loved seeing all the photos that were sent to us in response to our competition to win one of our limited edition Cornish Pisky Pals ‘Hope’ – Hope is dressed in all the colours of the Rainbow. The name for this little Pisky came in via Facebook and we thought that Jackie’s idea of ‘Hope’ was such a fitting name for a Pisky in the current climate! Below is a selection of just some of the entries to our competition.

Thank you to all who sent photos of their little Cornish Pisky Pals in their new forever home to us. It was a difficult decision but Eva’s photo was chosen as the winner. Eva’s little Piskies were lucky enough to have hammocks, ladder, hand drawn pictures and even little Pisky friends to make them feel very at home. Little Pisky ‘Hope’ has now arrived at Eva’s house and is being equally well looked after. Congratulations Eva and thank you for looking after your Piskies so well!

If you wish to purchase Hope, or any of our other Cornish Pisky Pals, they are available from our on line shop. Our little Piskies are individually hand made by us here at Pisky HQ with lots of love and care. Through running this competition we have seen that when the Piskies go off to their new forever homes they continue to be well looked after and cared for, it is heart-warming to see. Please look at our online shop to order a Cornish Pisky Pal, they are a lovely special gift for someone.

A very Cornish Christmas with Festive Cornish Pisky Pals®

Posted on Leave a comment

Cornish Piskies have been part of Cornish life for generations and Cornish Piskies have always enjoyed Christmas! Long before any ‘elf’ sat on any ‘shelf’, the little Cornish Piskies were enjoying Christmas and causing their own mischief!

It is lovely to see that through our small business many people have decided to reclaim the Cornish tradition of a cheeky little Pisky in the house! Festive Cornish Pisky Pals® have a loop so that they can hang from a Christmas Tree alongside other Christmas decorations, they also have the addition of glitter to add to that festive feeling!

As with all Cornish Pisky Pals our Festive Piskies are completely handmade, from their little faces with individual expressions, (that are always happy!) to the laces on their tiny Pisky boots and everything in between!

Each named Festive Pisky has a different coloured outfit and details about their character and when their Birthdays are, can been found on the Meet the Festive Pisky page of the website: Twinkle & Sparkle Jingle & Belle Noel & Yule Mistletoe & Cracker Sugar Plum or Cringle And our most recent addition to the Festive Piskies Nadelik. (Nadelik means Christmas in Cornish)

All of these little festive Cornish Pisky Pals would love to join your house for Christmas…and if someone eats those special chocolates or moves the decorations around on the Christmas tree…you will know who to blame!

The main Pisky characters of: Perran, Izzy, Sam, Katie and Yasmin are also available as Festive piskies with added glitter and loop so there should be a Pisky to suit everyone’s taste!

A very Cornish Gift At this time of year, festive Perran is particularly popular as those who can’t be in Cornwall for Christmas can receive their own tiny bit of Cornwall to make them smile. Festive Perran is wearing the Cornish colours of Black & Gold and it doesn’t get more Cornish than this little chap, with his happy Cornish grin, bringing you all the luck that he can, hanging on your Christmas Tree!
