This is Wenlock, the Olympic Games mascot. Click on its image and learn more about it.

This is Mandeville, the Paralympic Games mascot. Click on its image and learn more about it.

These two playful cartoon animations were said to be created from the last drops of steel left over from the construction of the final support girder for the London Olympic Stadium. The mascots were designed for children, to inspire them to be the best they can be. The design includes a single eye which is a camera to record all the things they do, and yellow lights on their heads (a homage to London's black taxis). The mascot Wenlock wears friendship bands in the colors of the Olympic rings, while Mandeville wears a timing device to track its personal best.
Wenlock, the mascot of the Olympic Games, is named after the English town of Much Wenlock, which inspired Baron Pierre de Coubertin to found the modern Olympic movement.
Mandeville, the mascot of the Paralympics, is named after the town of Stoke Mandeville, the birthplace of the Paralympic Games.

Now you can make the mascots the way you want. What sport are they going to practise?
