Rio 2016 Mascots

Recommended Posts

You got it mostly right.

It's OH-bah and EH-bah, as in portuguese the stressed syllabe is often the one before the last.

TI-bah TU-que and es-quin-DIM: the Us after the Qs are mute. An english spelling could be Tiba Tuk and Skindeen. This pair plays with many sounds and pronunciation varies a lot according to which brazilian accent you speak.

vee-NEE-seeush (if you're from Rio, Recife or Belém) or vee-NEE-seeus (if you're from everywhere else).

Perfect! Thank you very much!

Good to know my Portuguese reading skills are not that bad ^_^

The Olympic mascot is quite good for me. But we need to do something to the Para mascot : screw all the leaves and leave it with a round head. And that's how the Paralympic mascot should live.

On third thoughts, it occurs to me that both of them look quite labour-intensive to manufacture.

Mmmmmm. Okay. I gotta admit it. They, or at least Not-Cat, is growing on me. Something almost Cobi-esque about him. Pineapplehead's still a bit of a worry, but at least he's irrelevant.

Rio's handled the mascot introduction well. And I like the way they've brought them into the pantheon by emphasising the tradition and their predecessors.

So far, I'd give Rio top marks in every aspect of how they've been building the games identity and look.

The Rio brand is slowly but surely coming together well. We know the look of the games and the mascots. Next it's the ticket and torch designs.


And volunteer uniforms and car designs!

Yeah, I agree that the mascot design fits perfectly with the overall brand of Rio 2016, which is slowly turning out to be one of the best on many years, IMO.

The branding and mascots are colourful, relaxed and fun- like Rio and Brazil. Lots of green (plants) and blue (water) - colours of their flag, which is fresh and lush after the metallics and garish pink/purple of London.

The imagery is much more accessible and friendly than London/Beijing or Athens.

I like London's branding and I think Athens did a great job in using their brand to exploit the city, but Rio is simply fun and vibrant.

I think Rio's 3D logos are amazing. I'd like to get a hold of one of the little logo models the mascots are holding - I'd imagine they'd be worth quite a bit in a few decades.

I wonder how and how much ROC paid to revive Misha and gang? And I wonder where the outfits go afterwards? Do they return them to Lausanne...or let the actor keep the outfit? I mean, they (the 5 non-Rio mascots) would have no place in a Rio Olympic museum; so do they send them back??

Rio is doing a MUCH better job than London did at how they launch things. From the logo reveal in Copacbana to the way they've done the mascots by bringing together the old gang, I've got to say it's been more impressive than London's various bland launch events and press releases.

Does anyone know if Rio is going to actually sell them or will we have to 3D print them?

Speaking of Mascots. The U-20 FIFA World Cup mascot was launched this weekend = Wooliam
