Olympic accessories

Due to a small production run, the quartet of “snowlets” or baby snow owls (named Sukki, Nokki, Lekki and Tsukki) representing the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan, sold out by the third day of the Games, making them one of the most sought after and expensive mascots in Olympic collectible history. Until it was announced that five mascots would represent the 2008 Beijing summer games, the four snowlets were the largest Olympic mascot menagerie.
