Although I wont be going to London, I shall be watching it on the TV and it's highly likely that I will become obsessed with it ..... advance warning for you all! I will, of course, be supporting Team GB every step of the way.
It's an exciting time for people old and young alike, and a great chance to get your kids interested in sport.
This week we started the ball rolling by introducing Jonny and Sophie to Winning Wenlock, the official mascot!
Winning Wenlock isn't just a cute cuddly toy - he also dances to the official mascot song "On a Rainbow". With bendable arms and a cool medal, Wenlock is set to capture your child's imagination.
Jonny instantly loved Wenlock...although was somewhat confused that he only has one eye. Apparently this is actually a video camera so that he can record everything that he sees. In fact a lot of thought has been put into Wenlock's design. The "W" on his forehead reflects London taxis and the three spikes on his head represent the podium where winners will collect their medals.
Jonny soon got the hang of how to make Wenlock dance and play music (you push a bit on his leg) and before long both he and Sophie were dancing along.....it was really cute I wish I'd had a video camera to hand.

They took him out into the garden where he played in the tent ... in fact he didn't leave their sight all day...a definite hit!
Personally what I like about Wenlock is that he's really good quality AND he comes complete with batteries...I loathe products that don't come with their required batteries. I love the way he rocks the Union Flag, very patriotic and very cool too.
I think Wenlock will be doing a lot of singing and dancing over the next few months...and hopefully he will spur Team GB on to victory!
Winning Wenlock is available to purchase from www.goldenbeartoys.com with an RRP of £39.99 and is suitable for children from age 3+. A great momento as well as lots of fun.
