It is understood that the mascot of the giant Asian Winter Games is 18 meters high and 23 meters in diameter, and it took three months to carefully design and produce. The design team created nearly 20 sets of plans and designed various shapes for the mascot, and finally chose the shape of "sitting on the river" to enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way.

In spring, the Songhua River is windy and fast, which makes it difficult for the mascot to enter the water. Heilongjiang Provincial Department of Transportation, Harbin Maritime Safety Bureau, Harbin Workers' Cultural Palace and other units actively assisted, cooperated with the formulation of plans and gave strong support to ensure that the giant mascot is presented in the best state in front of citizens and tourists. Behind the giant mascot is a team of nearly 50 people who are responsible for maintenance, not only routine daily maintenance, but also inflating or deflating depending on the weather conditions to ensure that the mascot maintains its shape on the water.

It is reported that the giant mascot made a stunning appearance on the Songhua River, which is one of the series of activities of the "Heilongjiang Province Open River Season" sponsored by the Heilongjiang Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism, aiming to combine the opportunity of the "Asian Winter Meeting" to show the rich cultural and tourism resources of Heilongjiang Province and invite tourists to "travel to Longjiang all the way to the north in the Year of the Dragon"

The giant mascot will be placed on the Songhua River in the flood control memorial tower for one week for citizens and tourists to check in. After the opening ceremony of the Harbin Kaijiang Folk Culture Week and the launching ceremony of Binbin Nini's Fantasy Crusoe on April 19, the giant mascot will travel along the Songhua River and Heilongjiang River respectively, and finally reunite in Tongjiang City, where the Songhua River and Heilongjiang River meet, and go to Fuyuan City together. Along the way, "Binbin" and "Nini" will share with you the infinite scenery of Heilongjiang Province from their respective perspectives.
