(Chinese: pinyin: Fúwá; literally "good-luck dolls", also known as "Friendlies"),
were the mascots of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
The designs were created by Han Meilin, a famous Chinese artist.
The designs were publicly announced by
the National Society of Chinese Classic Literature Studies
on 11 November 2005 at an event marking the 1000th day
before the opening of the games.
There are five fuwa: Beibei, Jingjing, Huanhuan, Yingying, and Nini.
Together, the names form the sentence "Beijing huanying ni,"
which means "Beijing welcomes you".
Originally named 'The Friendlies',
they were promoted as 'Fuwa' when there
were concerns the name could be misinterpreted.
