Regions often have stuffed versions of their mascots.

A mascot is anything used to represent a group with a common identity.

A NaNoWriMo region may have a mascot to represent them and to help create a regional identity. This mascot can appear as a user icon in social media, on the region's website, or on physical items made by the region (like shirts or buttons). A plastic or plush version of the mascot may also be used to identify other Wrimos at events.

While many regional mascots take the form of an animal, this is not required. See, for example, Edmonton's ninja mascot.

Nano HQ has its own mascot, Blobby the dinosaur (and possibly also Tom Selleck).
