May was a month of celebrations and new mascot launches!
Mr. Men & Little Miss turn 50 this year and to celebrate an hour-long documentary hosted by Matt Lucas aired on Channel 4 on 16th May. We were thrilled to be invited to be part of the documentary which featured the Mr. Bump, Mr. Tickle and Little Miss Sunshine costume characters. Our events team, Vicky & Helene, were also seen training Matt how to perform in costume!
Cookies & Cones commissioned us to bring their Whoopie the Cookie character to life. Whoopie helped them celebrate their 3rd birthday last week and they are delighted with the result…
“We can honestly say we are so impressed with the service that Rainbow have provided, from initial communication right through to delivery it has been brilliant! We can’t thank you enough for getting Whoopie completed so quickly and cannot sing the entire teams praises highly enough.
Thank you so so much! Whoopie looks amazing!”
Also, Norwich City Football Club launched their new look Captain Canary mascot who replaced their 25-year-old former mascot, and Roarr!
