They were ok with me nursing in public!I don’t know about you, but I LOVE characters!

My kids like them too.For smaller kids costumed friends are more fun and easier to speak to than real people.But it’s more to it than the fluffy smile and pose for the camera.

In children’s mind a mascot always send a strong message.  An adult may be able to discern if a product or image that a mascot is portraying is worthless, while a child may see something completely different. Before language skills are strongly formed, children tend to remember events and people in snapshots like pictures in their memories. Mascots may be able to grab a place in a child’s mind that will be vivid and hold meaning into adulthood for the child.
