I've particularly enjoyed the global outbreaks of model animals painted by designers or corporations and even by schoolchildren.

The more widely a herd of brightly painted cows or sheep or pigs or polar bears are seen and appreciated, and hopefully raise money for good causes, the more I like it :)
Today I discovered my favourite British animated character, Gromit, of Aardman Animations' Wallace & Gromit fame, has got in on the act.

Following a successful display and auction of model zoo gorillas in 2011, there's to be a trail of 70 of the 1.5mtr high, Oscar-winning Gromits around Aardman's home city from July.
In September the statues will be sold off to raise funds for Bristol Children's Hospital.

Don't forget to take your (extra large!) poo-bags :)
