    Well, good luck in their future careers. For some weird reason, both of my kids are scared by the DisneyLand mascots.

    Eri Suzuki is serious about her goal in life - working in a theme park as a character mascot, one of those oversized, fuzzy creatures that dance and cavort with children.

    Nice to have ana mobition, but this is a pretty low bar to set yourself.

    Many European and American sport teams, like football have mascots.

    Hopefully part of the training involves how to survive inside an enclosed suit when it's 30°C out and no shade nearby. There aren't too many overweight people working as mascots. The job is physically demanding (carrying around that big head for a couple of hours is not easy) and the lack of decent ventilation means you're basically working in a sauna.
