This year, the holiday fundraising initiative takes on a designer makeover. The Peninsula’s lovable holiday ambassador SnowPage returns for 2015 – but this time in an inventive new guise. Luxury toy brand Papinee has exclusively designed and created 10 limited edition Peninsula SnowPage plush toys representing each Peninsula destination around the world. Inspired by Thai traditions, culture and the River of Kings – the Chao Phraya River, The Peninsula Bangkok’s SnowPage by Papinee features the jovial snowman with his signature Peninsula Page cap wearing a richly patterned and embroidered jacket with symbols of its inspiration.
