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!
In addition, we can add animatronic movement to your custom made mascot. such as moving eyes and mouth really bringing your mascot character to life.

Foodlovers Market Project
We created various animatronic characters for Food Lovers Stores in Somerset West and Hermanus. A Scarecrow with waving arm, A Cow that moves it's head from side to side and opens its mouth with a 'Mooing' sound effect, A Farmer sitting on a tractor with rotating wheels, A Chef that does backward somersaults and a selection of Peas that light up as they jump onto the fork.
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.
