7 Awesome Animal Mascots

December 7, 2017

If you’re mulling over whether to invest in an animal mascot costume for your company, you’re heading in the right direction. The emblematic characteristics of popular animals can swiftly set the tone for your company’s message.  A mascot can really encourage a strong and dependable relationship between businesses and their clients.

Whether you want to amuse your younger demographic with an adorable rabbit or scare an opposing team with a growling tiger, animal mascots are an awesome way to charm audiences and represent your brand or company.

There are so many animals to select from and it can be tricky to choose the perfect one. Fret not because we’ve pulled together our favourite seven inspiring creatures and what they could represent.

1. Bears

Because bears are large in form, they represent confidence, power, leadership and strength, making them a real source of inspiration. They encourage you to be the best you can, especially when you’re winning but even when times get tough. They’re as phenomenal source of support.

2. Rabbit

Rabbits signify abundance, warmth, comfort and vulnerability and are especially good at promoting springtime and Easter. Take the likes of Bugs Bunny, Miffy and Peter Rabbit – they’ve come to us in movies, books and timeless tales. They signify the dawn of a new season, good luck and fortune.

3. Cats

These furry felines represent rebirth, thanks to their nine lives and because they’re nocturnal, they’re often associated with darkness. Cats are also symbolic of mystery and magic but also unpredictability and even healing. We particularly adore the lasagne-loving Garfield – he’ll no doubt be a big hit with your audience.

4. Dogs

Devoted, faithful and honourable, dogs are always there for those they love. What’s more, they’re seen standing beside their owner’s side, protecting them until the end and are characteristic of friendship and liveliness.

5. Penguins

The penguin symbolises community and togetherness, and how you need team work and social connection to survive. It teaches you to bear suffering because there’s always something good waiting for you when you defeat it. What better reason to dress up as Pingu?

6. Tigers

Tigers are often associated with adventure, strength, bravery and stand as a powerful reminder of overcoming obstacles and fears by reclaiming your place of power. How about Tigger from Winnie the Pooh or Shere Khan from Jungle Book?

7. Pigs

These friendly pink animals are very intelligent. In fact, they have a higher intelligence than other domestic creatures, though they’re incredibly lazy. Their main pleasure in life is food, glorious food – they eat just about everything. Why not delight the crowds by plumping for a Peppa Pig mascot costume?

8. Which Animal Should You Pick?

These are just a few of the iconic creatures that have been used in the creation of animal mascots. Before you decide on the perfect mascot, make sure you do your homework on what they represent and find a match for your audience and company.

From lions to monkeys to werewolves to cows, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to animal mascot costumes. Choosing an animal costume to represent your brand and values is a wonderful way to make a lasting impression.  When you make your decision, don’t forget it’s a good idea to pick a mascot that engages with your target audience.
