Where they order Mishka

Life-size puppets of pneumosuits of polar bears in Odessa are adult toys of anniversaries and youth couples. All of us in childhood loved to play with bears. Who among us hasn't had it? Another reason why such an interactive show is so popular with adults, at least it seemed, is an ordinary life-size puppet for children's birthdays. Medvedikov is ordered by leading car brands for their shares.


In the video, giant bears, along with drummers, act as a hostess at one of the many entrances to the mall. See how impressive the bears look. Their size is impressive. This highlights the importance of your event. This is how our brain works. Big bears for big events. There must be something grand here, since such handsome men meet me. Of course, we are not serious about this, but nevertheless, there is something in it. But add the same cool photo zone, some LED spotlights, good music, a girl with champagne glasses from our "Lady Buffet" to such bears, and make sure that such an event will remain in the memory of your guests for a long time.

Happy birthday

It doesn't matter how old you or your friends, relatives, acquaintances are, 20, 30, 40, 50 or even 99 years old. We are all small children at heart. We were all small children, and even because of the mists of past years, we remember those wonderful childhood moments that have walked with us in our memory all our lives. Be that as it may, we know well that having fun from the heart and being happy is possible only with that naive childish smile and a pure soul. And big kids need big white bears, big cars, and big goals. With the last two points, this is not for us, but with the bears it is exactly that.

Bears for the wedding

They say that on the day of the wedding, the bride at one time or another passes her whole life through the prism of her imagination. She remembers how she sang on a chair, watched the cartoon Umka and told how she would grow up and get married. At such moments, our bride sincerely smiles. Paradoxical as it may seem, although the polar bear is a predatory animal, for us, the polar bear life-size puppet evokes only something beautiful. Wonderful thoughts, good mood, grace and other incredible and pleasant sensations.
Order white bears for your relatives for a wedding and as a gift for newlyweds.

PROMO Promotions

Although the bears do not like to walk in clothes like us people, like you and me, but for the sake of our fun with you, our bears can wear different accessories and clothes. Especially white bears love to wear branded clothes. For example, a scarf of your company or a blouse with your logo. A hat or tie in your corporate color, that's what the bear likes.

Just like wearing branded clothes, bears like to stand on branded photo zones. So they feel like a part of a large and friendly family. If your business needs something incredibly cute, white bears are ready to help you with it.

For a children's holiday for children

We have already said a lot why adults adore bears in particular. Why are there hundreds of options for life-size puppets and pneumosuits of various options, but the popularity of polar bears, pandas and their analogues accounts for more than 99%. The number is just terrible. But he is so popular with adults. Do you know how it is for children? Now multiply this popularity by two. And even three. It is to this extent that children emotionally adore these fluffy bears, which are funny, big and white. Here's what we can say for 100% - ABSOLUTELY ALL CHILDREN LOVE WHITE BEARS for the holiday.

Polar Bear Marketing

Of course, we could write megabytes of text why such powerful automobile corporations, but not only automobile corporations, attract polar bears for their advertising, entertainment, demonstration actions and events. We could write the benefits of such advertising and marketing solutions that are popular with most customers, but we will only say one thing - BECAUSE IT WORKS. Glory to the white bears and the polar pole))

!!!ATTENTION!!!!!!ATTENTION!!!ATTENTION!!! before calling us.
Why such prices for a bear?
Many people do not understand why such a price for a white Bear. We do not want to burden you with technical nuances, but people confuse the work of an ordinary animator with a white bear. And it's not even a life-size puppet! It's a pneumosuit! That is, in addition to the fact that the costume itself and the equipment for the bear are very expensive (about $ 1000), the bear is powered by a mini-generator, which is located in the animator's backpack and constantly supplies air to the middle of the costume through the clutch. Generators are not durable, because work is possible up to an hour. The suit itself and technical components are quite large and difficult to transport. And since inflating and assembling a costume is an energy-consuming business, even 5 minutes or one song costs so much money! The price of express congratulations is not after 5 minutes of our work, but for the technical aspects and operation of the costume. After all, the bear costume is white and constantly needs dry cleaning, so the price for 5-10 minutes of work cannot be 200-400 UAH!!!
