The Glasgow 2018 mascot Bonnie the seal has had a fantastically busy February!

The sporty seal was brimming with excitement as she travelled around Scotland, giving even more new sports a go.

She visited schools across Glasgow, Edinburgh, Alloa and Renfrewshire, including Kirklandneuk Primary School where she bumped into her special pal Ross Mackenzie, author of A Bonnie Tale.

Bonnie flipped around Bells Sports Centre in Perth as she took part in the Scottish National Artistic Gymnastics Championships.

Inspired by all those competing, Bonnie was super excited to keep improving her gymnastics skills and got lots of #sealfies along the way!

You can watch some of Europe’s best gymnasts compete live at Glasgow 2018 at The SSE Hydro in August. Tickets on sale HERE.

Bonnie’s curling try-out

Seal-iously inspired by the buzz around winter sports, Bonnie got to grips with the ice and gave curling a go at The Intu Braehead Curling Rink last month.

Bonnie, who always loves to try new activities, was only too happy to put her sweeping skills to the test as she received a one-on-one lesson.

The young seal pup proved she was a natural and was excited to tick another new sport off her list of activities to try.

The curious wee seal pup took a trip to visit some of the amazing sights ‘Bonnie’ Scotland has to offer.

Exploring Pollok Country Park, Bonnie met one of Scotland’s favourite native animals - the Highland cow.

Bonnie joins new pals for mid-term break fun

Bonnie is having a great time in the run up to Glasgow 2018 and loves telling new friends all about the European Championships.

During the mid-term break she visited Silverburn Shopping Centre, Riverside Museum, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, The Gallery of Modern Art and took a walk around the city centre.

So many of her new buddies got to learn all about the sports that will be showcased in Glasgow and around Scotland this August.

Mini cuddly Bonnies

Have you got your hands on mini Bonnie yet pals? Bonnie met her latest ‘mini-mes’ this month when miniature Bonnie soft toys hit the shelves this month.

Really cute and cuddly - just like the seal pup herself, you can order your official mascot toys from the Glasgow 2018 online store HERE or pop into Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum or St Enoch Centre Glasgow Life store.
