London mascots rival that dreaded logo

They only have one pair of eyes between them and look like Sonic the Hedgehog crossed with a character from the Disney film Monsters Inc.

But you had better get used to these strange blob-like creatures because Wenlock and Mandeville, as they are known, are the mascots for the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics respectively, and will be all over Britain for the next two years.

Following the ridicule over the £400,000 Olympic logo, their creators will be hoping that Wenlock and Mandeville get a more favourable reception - even though they too carry the much-mocked 2012 image.

Built to impress: Wenlock and Mandeville's design features include cameras for eyes and the Olympic colours

Blobs: Wenlock, named after the Shropshire town, and Mandeville after the hospital are the 2012 London Olympics mascots.
Inspiration: Wenlock copies Usain Bolt's famous pose in a four-minute animation which explains the story of the duo.

Testing his skills: Wenlock tries gymnastics, inspired by Beth Tweddle
Futuristic: Wenlock and Mandeville give each other a high five.
