about meomi's mascots for vancouver 2010 olympic games

meet MIGA, QUATCHI and SUMI, the trio of new mascots for Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games - designed by Meomi = and they have been plushed!

"Inspired by British Columbian aboriginal legends, these ambassadors will be travelling and sharing their stories with children across Canada" [via Meomi-blog]

personally speaking, traditionally mascots (of this scope/event) don't necessarily translate well into plushies (no disrespect to past creators :p) but in this instance, they are near-perfect for plushies! the aesthetics are spot on, IMHO ... Miga, Quatchi and Sumi plushies are currently available (at various sizes) online here = priced between CAD$25-$40, depending on sizes (altho currently they ship only within canada, with a US-store coming soon it seems :p) and Quatchi rawks! ~ *cool*
(cheers for the headsup, Christine!)
