London 2012 Olympic Games Wenlock Soft Toy

We were asked if we'd like to review a Wenlock soft toy for Golden bear, with Olympic fever everywhere you look  how could we resist. We are so proud of Team GB, we think they are doing amazingly in the tournament. Both myself and the boys have been watching and cheering our boys and girls on and are so proud that we've been able to watch the games held in our country. We weren't lucky enough to get tickets to any of the events but it hasn't dampened our spirits too much. 



Many people have criticised  the London 2012 Mascots Wenlock and Mandeville. But I think this is mainly because people don't understand where there names come from or what they symbolise. They are named after Much Wenlock in Shropshire and  Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. The three points on Wenlock's head represent the three places on the podium. The pattern on his body with the logo of the games symbolises the  world coming to London in 2012. The shape on the front of his head represents the shape of the Olympic stadium roof and the rings on his arms represent the 5 Olympic rings.

Wenlock is 30cm tall and can be bought from all good retailers, he is very sturdy and very good quality too. James absolutely loves him and has claimed him as his own.
