Benefits of Mascots

Back to Homepage


An animatronic device is a mechanized mascot. Instead of a Human wearing a mascot costume, we create a static character and using either electronic or pneumatic technology create movement such as eyes, mouth, arms and legs. It can have simple movement such as an arm waving or complex with moving head, arms, legs and back. An animatronic character can be pre-programmed to behave in a specified manner or controlled remotely. At Theatreland we produce animatronic characters for: In store promotions, Exhibitions, Halloween Displays, Christmas Displays and more!

Foodlovers Market Project

We had the opportunity to create some Animatronic and Static display items for the new Foodlovers store that opened in Somerset West in November 2017. The project was a huge success and we had a blast bringing these guys to life! Check them out below and don't forget to visit the store to see them in action first hand!

Peppa Pig Live!

For the South African tour of the Peppa Pig Live shows, we created the mascots of Peppa, George, Mummy and Daddy Pig. These mascots are equipped with animatronic mouths to create the idea that they are talking. They turned out beautifully and giving them moving mouths really makes the difference, especially for the target market of young kids. make sure you get to watch the show in April 2018!
