Since the Beijing Winter Olympics kicked off on Feb 4, the mascot Bing Dwen Dwen has become an A-lister. The round-bodied panda wrapped in a layer of ice won the hearts of athletes, media and the public after appearing in the stands. Products featuring the mascot, such as keychains and dolls, were quickly sold out. “Bing Dwen Dwen sold out” even became a trending topic on Sina Weibo, with many internet users expressing their wish to own at least one.
