Buttons the Cadbury animatronic cow was created as part of the Adopt a Cow campaign which came about following research carried out on city children. It turns out that growing up in the city has lead to some confusion on what cows look like with 1 in 10 believing that a cow is the size of a double decker bus and 10% thinking that they are as small as cats.
Cadbury is therefore giving city children the chance to get up close and personal with this animatronic cow to find out what these animals actually look like.
Controlled through a mixture of robotics and two highly skilled puppeteers inside a realistic construction of the body of a cow, Buttons took a team of 20 prop specialists over 500 hours to create. Ensuring that it was as authentic as possible, the highly skilled performers studied the moo-vements of real cows for over 300 hours to capture the true likeness for this one-of-a-kind build.
The Cadbury Adopt a Cow campaign is an exciting new initiative from Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons, which gives families the opportunity to adopt a cow via an on-pack promotion and 20 lucky families the chance to win an overnight trip to meet their cow at its farm. Special promotion packs can be found in stores now with the competition closing on 31st August 2017. For more information about the Adopt a Cow campaign go to https://adoptacow.cadbury.co.uk/.
As part of this campaign we are giving 10 lucky winners the chance to win a bundle of Cadbury’s buttons (40 packs of buttons 30g to be precise!).
