Marymoo the Cow — InventAnAd

Marymoo the Cow

Mooooo! I’m Marymoo the Cow and I run Gadget Island’s first and only advertising agency. #gADget My job is to make sure that the island’s residents keep up-to-date with all new and necessary developments. I’m always here if something happens. I know all the island’s residents, and everyone knows me. As an advertising professional, customer satisfaction is everything to me.

When I was young I was a promising heptathalete, but because cows don’t do sports in the Other World, I couldn’t find an elite competition league for me. Like other cows, I was offered a job. As a milking machine operator. The place was some big farm overseas. Because I didn’t have any alternatives, I decided to take the job and I got on a boat. For the whole journey I was bothered by the thought, that maybe I had made the wrong choice. Factory work did not suit my creative nature. When the ferry stopped in the middle of the journey to refuel, I escaped from the ship. #independentcows I didn’t know it then, but I had arrived at Gadget Island. Other animals who had left the Other World lived here, so I decided to settle down too. Soon after arriving I started studying. I did an advertising degree through online study and as soon as I’d graduated I founded the gADget office.

I don’t have a family or children. But I like children, of course. Mooooo! When I was young, I thought only about athletics, then came my studies, and later work. I definitely don’t have time to start having calves. #cowpower However I spend a lot of time with the children on the island. I like making sure they get exercise through different games and competitions. Geocaching has been popular on the island for a long time. With Grizzly Honeypaw’s help, I’ve found a range of different exercise games which encourage children to exercise more. I think that Jungle Rally and other sports apps are fantastic inventions. A few months ago I started the Active Island project, covering the entire island, and now the adult residents of the island too have their own well-being wristbands. #activeisland #cowsfly #keepgoing

In addition to the adverts and exercise, I’m also involved in the activities of Gadget Island’s news agency. #onthepulse #knowledgeispower Life is so amazingly action packed that I manage to exceed my activity wristband target every day. It’s rare that I have time to spend just at home. My favourite way to relax is with a nice walk along the beach with Don Wolf. He’s a real gentleman. If you need to reach me, the best ways to contact me are at the office Muzzlepad and Instamoo @MaryMoo.

Cecile the Seal is on the go! Whilst lounging on the beach she found an exciting notice.
