In the past few years, Champ has won regional mascot camps and most recently placed 8th in the county at the UCA national mascot competition. More information about Champ can be found on his own website at www.kreweofchamp.com

The Boy with the Orange Glasses” Author to do a book signing at Mascot Hall of Fame Children’s Museum in Whiting, Indiana on Saturday, July 17th!

Jerome Edward Oblon, (Jerry), former Whiting, Indiana resident, will read his book, “The Boy with the Orange Glasses” and do a book signing at the Mascot Hall of Fame on Saturday, July 17th! Jerry will read his book at 11:00 am and at 2:00 pm in our Furitorium theater. Jerry will do a book signing and his book will be available for purchase that day. 📖🤓🧡

“The Boy with the Orange Glasses” is about a young five-year-old boy who needs glasses. This boy loves orange. He wears orange shirts, shorts, and shoes. The boy is having problems in school, reading, and seeing what the teacher writes on the board. His mom takes him to the eye doctor to get his eyes checked. The young boy is scared and apprehensive. This book describes his experience at the doctor's office using his words. He finds out that he needs glasses but does not want to wear glasses because he will look different. In the end, he finds a pair of glasses that make him feel cool and wants to wear his glasses.

For the safety of staff and guests, the Mascot Hall of Fame has implemented time ticketing which features two (2) Play Sessions, 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. Each play session is 3 hours.

This #MascotMonday we’re shining the spotlight on a friend who’s more accustomed to the sunlight.

He calls Tampa, Florida home and can be seen around campus and at sporting events at University of South Florida, say hello to Rocky D. Bull!

When Rocky isn’t having fun in the sun with Bulls fans and athletes on campus he enjoys helping out the community at different events and special occasions.

Mascot Hall of Fame • Interactive Children’s Museum

The National Mascot Hall of Fame (MHOF) is located at 1851 Front Street in Whiting, Indiana. The 25,000 square foot, multi-million dollar facility is a state-of-the-art, interactive, family fun zone, with a wide range of exhibits, activities and events that celebrate mascot fun. Original and memorable mascot interactions and performances will entertain, teach and enthuse children and their families year-round.

Located just 30 minutes from Downtown Chicago, the MHOF features a number of interactive exhibit areas designed by Cincinnati-based Jack Rouse Associates (JRA). This award-winning firm has designed world-class family museums and attractions such as the Coca-Cola Museum in Atlanta, the Crayola Experience in Pennsylvania, and the Green Bay Packers’ Hall of Fame. Guests will experience exhibits such as the "Department of Furry Arts", the "Science of Silliness Lab", and the "Phuzzical Education Department". In addition, the MHOF hosts annual induction ceremonies as well as many other mascot programs and events attracting visitors from all over the country.

More than just a giant fun factory, the MHOF has many interactive, educational displays and activities that incorporate S.T.E.A.M. education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) to compliment state and local curriculums. There are nearly 1.7 million students, within a 100-mile radius of the MHOF, whom could be positively impacted to engage in healthy-active lifestyles. The MHOF is the perfect destination for school field trips and youth organizations.

The MHOF is located at the very east end of Whiting’s beautiful 119th Street Downtown Business District and serves as the corridor to Lake Michigan and Whiting Lakefront Park. The exterior of the building features a huge rendition of Reggy, the official mascot of the MHOF. Once inside, visitors can use their imagination to design and physically build a mascot, audition as a mascot, and perform exciting mascot stunts including firing t-shirt and confetti cannons. The MHOF will surely provide a unique opportunity for an affordable, shared, family experience. To learn more about the MHOF visit www.mascothalloffame.com.

Which Mascots have Been to Switzerland?
Hope to be a part of the fame one day
Here’s a story I did with Texans mascot, Toro. No fans in the stands will be hard this year, especially for the mascot’s biggest fan. I asked his furry friend to surprise him on a zoom call ahead of the nfl season. Dominic’s smile is priceless.
With the openings happening everywhere, is there any update on when you may open?
I am ready to watch it
Sir Roland's BIG Adventure! Hey everyone! So I have been writing this children's book on and off for the last two years and now it is time for me to get serious about it! This children's book is something that I am personally doing as a project and a bucket list item of mine, unrelated to Mascots for a Cure. This is a story that is full of adventure and features real children who are battling cancer or have battled cancer. Together, with their combined super powers and alongside Sir Roland, they take on the fight against cancer! This book is going to be AMAZING and super IMPACTFUL! If you, a company you work for, or anyone you know would like to be a part of this process, please check out the link below! Sponsored levels range from $25 - $250 for individuals and $500-$5,000 for businesses. Each sponsored level gets something cool in return! Check it out and please share!
Any chance of you putting your store online for those who don’t live in the immediate area but still want to support the museum ?
It was quite an experience to come here!
Mascot Hall of Fame check out my story involving one of your own! Today, the Chiefs and Texans play on the field, but the teams’ mascots friendship will last well beyond the game.
