Adopt a Cadbury Cow Competition News

Last weekend I took our eldest and her friend into London as an end-of-term treat, and the first treat we enjoyed was courtesy of my favourite chocolate brand, Cadbury.

Animatronic cow

We were invited to the Barbican Centre to meet Buttons, an impressive 8 foot animatronic cow. Amazingly lifelike, this cow was controlled by both robotics and two highly skilled puppeteers inside the body - I kept thinking that it was a good job the weather wasn't as hot as it has been recently! Buttons took a team of 20 prop specialists over 500 hours to create and the performers studied the moo-vements (geddit?!) of real cows for over 300 hours to give a realistic performance. Watch this very short clip to see if the girls made friends with Buttons...

Buttons was created to respond to recent research which has shown that some city children are not exactly sure what size cows are. Ten percent believe that a cow is the size of a double decker bus whilst another ten percent think that cows are as small as cats! Cute!

The girls were given some chocolate buttons (which definitely helped fuel our shopping later on) and the chance to draw a cow in the presence of renowned artist Rose Blake, who was on hand to give tips. I'm sure she was definitely as impressed as I was with the coloured cow...

Drawing of a cow

Cadbury are running a promotion on special packs this summer to give families the chance to adopt a cow, and twenty lucky families will also win a farm-tastic (love the puns) overnight stay at the fabulous Cadbury Farm.
