For Commonwealth Games awesomeness it’s hard to go past Matilda – the giant winking Kangaroo.
Why? Because Matilda was actually a Forklift.
Yep, that’s a whole lot of chicken wire and plaster of Paris (zero fact-checking on construction methods btw) being driven around by a forklift #forkliftlicence #nolimits
Gold Coast 2018 has a Koala called Borobi as a mascot but frankly if it isn’t powered by a Forklift it’s just not as cool for us…
