CityVille: Limited Edition Penguin now available as a Free Gift

If you're looking to add even more winter whimsy to your town in CityVille, and the Winter items already released this week aren't doing it for you, you'll be happy to know that Zynga has added a new (and free) item to the game via the game's free gifts page. The item, as you might have already guessed, is the limited edition Penguin.

This isn't a sculpture or an otherwise inanimate item - it's a "live" Penguin, an animal item that would look great in any user's barnyard, or would look equally adorable next to a Christmas Tree lot or another decidedly winter-themed area.

To send this Penguin to your friends, simply head to the Free Gifts page, and then scroll to the very bottom, as the Penguin is now the last item on the list. Zynga itself has announced that the Penguin is a limited edition animal, meaning that it won't be around forever. An exact "expiration" date hasn't been made, so it'll be interesting to see if it is available as long as the snow (until March), or if it will disappear much sooner.

Either way, don't take any chances on missing out on this cute little fella (emphasis on "little") - send one to your friends as soon as possible (and ask for one in return), while you know it will still be available!
