This small toy figure of a Pig in a Pink Party Hat and matching festive outfit (or simply, Party Pig, as I enjoy calling him) was gifted to me by a friend on my most recent birthday.

The set was originally sold by Target in November of 2021 and is now (understandably) sold out, but you can still find it for sale on eBay and other similar sites.
