My three children were pretty excited about being invited to the Cadbury Little Pi-Cow-So Masterclass with illustrator Rose Blake and Buttons the Cadbury animatronic cow hosted by Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons. My kids love drawing as much as they love Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons, so I was pretty convinced they would have lots of fun.
Buttons the animatronic cow was created to mark the Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons Adopt a Cow campaign. It’s in response to research that shows that most city based children are unsure about what a cow actually looks like. During the masterclass the children got the opportunity to meet the life size Buttons up close.
Buttons is brought to life by a mix of robotics and two very skilled puppeteers from inside a life like construction of a cow body. It took a team of 20 prop specialists over 500 hours to create Buttons, whilst 300 hours of real life cow movements were studied to ensure that Buttons is as close to a real cow as possible.
During the masterclass Rose Blake was on hand to help the children with their cow drawings. In fact Rose even commented on that my eldest daughter Jess’s cow drawing was as good as hers. High praise indeed, and it totally made her day. Thank you Rose.
With every packet of Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons you have the opportunity to take part in the Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons Adopt a Cow campaign and 20 lucky families will win an overnight trip to meet their cow at its farm (competition ends on 31 August 2017).

Thank you Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons for inviting us all to the Cadbury Little Pi-Cow-So Masterclass, we had a fabulous time meeting Buttons the cow and Rose Blake.
Until next time.
