The Olympic Mascot Purple Trail

Last week the boys and I followed the Purple Olympic mascot trail, through London starting at Piccadilly circus. The boys loved walking along the streets searching for Wenlocks and Mandevilles it was a bit like a treasure hunt for them.
There are 6 trails in all that take you along some of London’s most scenic streets. The idea of the routes are that of taking you on a journey of discovery to some of the greatest sights and sounds of London. Each mascot is individually designed animating the route in a unique way.
You will find the Wenlocks and Mandevilles in London until 9th September.
You will find all of the routes here

The whole route is 3.4km

We had a brilliant day and it didn’t cost us a thing apart from our travel of coarse. The boys now want to go and find more mascots on other trails and whats great is that there is a competition-running where if you have taken a snapshot of yourself with a mascot you can enter to win a fantastic set of London 2012 mascot figurines. You enter via twitter tweeting @molpresents and @corgi mentioning #mymascot

Hope you have enjoyed looking at our pictures 🙂
