I've heard some criticism about the Olympic Mascots, Wenlock & Mandeville, especially about the way they look with their giant one eyed stare. Wenlock and Mandeville might not have proved very popular with adults but I know that my children love them and feel closer to the Olympic events through them. They have had cuddly toys of the mascots for quite a while now and they are both well worn from being constantly dragged around!
Living in London my kids are obviously very excited about the Olympics anyway. I was pleased to find the extensive range of Cadbury's mascot themed chocolates and jelly sweets in Poundland in a 2 for £1 deal. These are new shapes and packaging for London 2012 but the chocolate itself is classic Dairy Milk. These make great treats for kids, especially at the moment.
There are also these Cadbury's chocolate lollipops and mini chocolate characters, all in the shape of the mascots.
The shops are full of these chocolates and sweets at the moment, apparently they have not been selling as well as expected, which is probably why they are now in Poundland.
What do you think of Cadbury's Olympic mascot range?
