Find: The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Mascots

I love the Vancouver 2010 mascots! Sumi, Miga and Quatchi represent various facets of Canada in the most darling way possible, and pay homage to the history and legends of the First Nations -- the indigenous peoples of Canada.

Sumi is an animal spirit who represents the mountains and loves to ski. Miga is a sea bear who represents coastal Vancouver and loves to snow board and surf. Finally Quatchi is a young sasquatch representing the Canadian forests and whose passion is hockey.

I'm crushing on all the Olympic Mascot wearables, found in the Official Vancouver 2010 Olympic Store. Choose from fuzzy slippers, an embroidered luggage tag or a mascot tote bag...even though the items are supposedly for children, they are playful enough to pull off a la Hello Kitty. But, if you're more adult-minded, maybe go for a simple key chain to show your Olympic Mascot spirit.

That is so cute! I would totally wear it with pride. Do they have t-shirts?
