We all take selfies
We take selfie w/ friends and selfies with family. We also take selfies with iconic places like…
the Statue of Liberty,
…and we take selfies with branded, custom mascots.
We take selfies with people, places & things that we like. Our selfies become part of the family & friends memory. They get momentum in the the social media universe.
When we take selfies with mascots, that’s a pretty compelling form of marketing. The mascot becomes part of the the lore people share with family and friends.
Taking selfie with mascots is, indeed, a thing. It’s also one of the reasons mascots are such fabulous marketing ambassadors!
Selfies with mascots is a unique coming together of customer & brand. The mascots have become part of the family. One of the friends.

Well, Somebody’s gotta show these kids how to frolic about…
Look, being a mascot performer is ohmygoodness—lotsa fun, sweaty, really hard work and a big responsibility. Sometimes mascots may seem goofy, clueless and a titch obnoxious. It’s all part of their charm.
While it may seem that mascot performance is a pretty improvisational skill, really it takes training and planning. When you have nailed the basics, the improvisational moves will follow.
The NMA advises every performer to get performing basics. For serious mascot training, we will connect you with the real pros—the guyz who have walked the walk and perfected the wiggle inside big, fuzzy mascots. They work with performers to stay safe and avoid injuries to themselves and to others.
Our mascot trainers have worked for the pros. They have created the personality and moves for the best known mascot characters in the country.
Get in touch and we’ll put you in touch with the best!
