With the 2008 Beijing Olympiad drawing near, the Offical Licensed Olympic Merchandise Outlet on the first floor of Yueshow Fashion Market has become a popular destination for foreign and domestic tourists alike. It carries a full selection of official Olympic souvenirs. The products include mascots, T-shirts, hats, bracelets, pack bags, wallets, umbrellas, cups, and pens.
The best-sellers, though, are the 5 Olympic Fuwa(Lucky Dolls) mascots.--resembling fish, panda, Tibetan antelope, swallow, and Olympic flame respectively. With names BeiBei, JingJing, HuanHuan, YingYing, and NiNi, their names make up the Beijing Olympic motto: BeiJingHuanYingNi (Beijing Welcomes You). The dolls are happy, lively, and represent good luck to all Olympic participants and fans worldwide. So fans of the Olympics, or just fans of cute mascots, should certainly find the store to your liking.
Shop assistants are hospitable, and can speak good English. Prices vary. An Olympic bracelet, for example, prices at RMB 18. While a big, cuddly mascot character each cost several hundred Yuan.
