The cost of a mascot will depend on complexity. Simple mascots from our pre-designed range start at R7,500 whereas a unique ‘Fully Customised’ mascot will start from R12,500. You have complete control over your budget through the selection of optional features and components. This is identified up-front during the conceptual design phase and we are here to assist you in every way to ensure that you receive the best, most cost-effective solution


All our mascots are made to International Standards and compare with any you will find in Europe or the USA. Of course, if you are based in Europe or USA and buy from South Africa you will benefit from our favourable US$ exchange rate saving you more than 50%.

The average cost for a mascot produced overseas is between $3200 and $5000 which equates to R48,500 to R80,000 ( at the current exchange rates +/- 15 ZAR to US$ ).  The same mascot produced here in South Africa will cost on average $1000. 

Based in Cape Town we understand the conditions, weather and demands that are unique to Africa. We offer localised support, training and management programs to maintain and clean your mascots ensuring they remain in tip top condition for their next appearance.
