Vancouver 2010 Mascots

The mascots for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games have been unveiled. They are dangerously high on the cute factor so be forewarned.

Here is a little info on the mascots taken from the official Vancouver 2010 site.

Each of the creatures is distinct and special – both in personality and in appearance. One is big, gentle and shy . . . one is small, mischievous and outgoing . . . and one is a natural-born leader with a passion for protecting the environment. All three are mythical creatures with roots in local legend. One is a sasquatch. One is a sea-bear. And one is an animal guardian spirit.

I totally love them and the promotional video is great. Very reminiscent of our old friend Katamari. And yes I'm sorry that you can't stop singing the Katamari song now.

  1. Haha 🙂
    Yeh McDonalds was an official sponsor of the Athletes Village or the Australian team or something not entirely compatible like that 😛 Of course, these days they have their 'healthy menu' so it's not as unseemly 🙂
    Of course by 2010 I will have a child around the age happy meals are geared towards, so it won't be so bad if I have to go and get one. For the toy, of course 😉
