Mando the Inflatable Mascot Sells Suzukis
Over the course of several months, Suzuki car dealer, Pete Sanchez, and his young artist friend developed the concept for a mascot they could use in several ways. The reality of their efforts was Mando the tiger. He started out as a costume and then moved into a caricature that stands in front of the children's play area at Katy Mills Mall (the most visited area of the mall since its grand opening in may of 07). But Mando didn't stop there. Next he was transformed (with the help of Landmark Creations) into an inflatable mascot that towered 20 feet high.
