Meet the stars

  • caractacus paws

    Caractacus Paws

    Artist:
    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
    Location:
    The Mall at Cribbs Causeway

    “Near, far, in our motor car. Oh, what a happy time we’ll spend”. There’s never a dull moment with ‘Caractacus Paws’, the fantasmagorical machine from the children’s classic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Our fine four-fendered friend may head airborne if you don’t keep your eye on him. Do any car fans fancy taking this magical motor for a spin?

    Designed by the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang team at EON Productions and painted by Em Ketteringham.

  • feathers

    Classic Feathers

    Location:
    The Mall at Cribbs Causeway

    Nefarious criminal mastermind and a bird of many faces, the naughtiest and sneakiest penguin, is back in his classic disguise featuring his iconic red rubber glove on top of his head. Silent yet sinister Feathers McGraw is one to keep an eye on. We know he likes to steal diamonds, so keep your wits about you. This penguin masquerading as a chicken has been a firm fan favourite and we’re glad to see this villainous penguin back for our showcase. 

  • shaun the sheep

    Classic Shaun

    Location:
    The Mall at Cribbs Causeway

    Say hello to the leader of the flock and our favourite woolly friend. As much as we all love the variety of ewe-nique designs created for Shaun in the City Trail, there is shear-ly only one original amazing sheep. If you’re a fan of this smart and inquisitive sheep, ewe’ve come to the right pasture. 

  • wallace

    Classic Wallace

    Location:
    The Mall at Cribbs Causeway

    The eccentric inventor wearing his iconic green knitted pullover and red tie was a huge hit amongst visitors of Gromit Unleashed 2! The classically styled Wallace made his debut in 2018, with enthusiastic visitors eagerly waiting for photo-ops and joining him for a cracking cuppa. Although Wallace’s elaborate contraptions don’t always work the way he wants them to, he sure has perfected the ultimate Wensleydale and crackers combination. 

  • dreamy balloons

    Dreamy Balloons

    Artist:
    Veronica Li
    Location:
    The Mall at Cribbs Causeway

    Designed for Gromit Unleashed Hong Kong, ‘Dreamy Balloons’ is a paw-pular sculpture featuring in over five exhibitions – what a busy lad.  After starring in multiple exhibitions, ‘Dreamy Balloons’ has had a little refresh ahead of the showcase – featuring some fresh balloons. Enjoy his updated design before he goes up, up and away. 

  • facts the way

    Facts the way we did it, lad!

    Artist:
    Gavin Strange
    Location:
    The Mall at Cribbs Causeway

    Commemorating the phenomenal success of Gromit Unleashed, Fact’s the way we did it, lad! is adorned with cracking stats about the project in glimmering gold. Our friend Gavin Strange, Director and Designer for Aardman Animations designed this lovely lad.

  • fun guy shaun

    Fun Guy

    Artist:
    Simon Toser
    Location:
    The Mall at Cribbs Causeway

    There’s not mushroom on this plinth. This spore-some design is inspired by the weird and wonderful world of fungi and looks the part with his forest floor. Careful not to touch as he could be poisonous, but he’s safe for the little creatures and critters that live on him. He certainly is the mossFun Guy’ around.  

  • Heart of stone feathers mcgraw

    Heart of Stone

    Artist:
    Katie Wallace
    Location:
    The Mall at Cribbs Causeway

    Get one of your five-a-day with ripe and ready Heart of Stone’. This avocado inspired penguin has been blended with perfect greens to resemble the superfood we all know and love. Heart of Stone’ will sure guac your world. Did you know avocadoes are considered a single-seed berry? We could even say this is one berry-licious Feathers. 

  • ice ice puppy

    Ice Ice Puppy

    Artist:
    Tim Sutcliffe
    Location:
    The Mall at Cribbs Causeway

    Taking you on an adventure to the Arctic circle, this spectacular and sparkly design reflects the icy magical landscape of The North Pole. Covered in a flurry of snow with the still Arctic Ocean at his feet and an impressive Northern Lights display on his back, this is certainly one enchanting Gromit.

  • kanzashi

    Kanzashi

    Artist:
    Kate Strudwick
    Location:
    The Mall at Cribbs Causeway

    Artist Kate Strudwick was inspired by the traditional dress of the Geisha after travelling to Japan and being awestruck by the beauty and skill of this traditional art form. Shaun the Sheep is incredibly popular with Japanese audiences and we hope that Kate’s design is a fitting tribute to this captivating art form.
