Five Kids Spread Joy
①IF you can draw the 2008 Olympic mascots (吉祥物) yourself, you'll become the coolest kid in your classmates' eyes. All five have become top fashion.
Since China made its final decision at 8 pm November 11, the five mascots - Beibei, the fish; Jingjing, the panda; Huanhuan, the Olympic flame(火焰) ; Yingying, the Tibetan antelope (藏羚羊) and Nini, the swallow (燕子) - have been on school bags, hats and T-shirts. If you put their names together, they say "Beijing welcomes you!" in Chinese.
People rushed into many big shopping centres to buy them. Some shelves were empty after only one day of business.
Why do the mascots look like kids?
