Just for fun…you’d meet Bart Simpson and Shrek and an unidentified Orange character (could be Garfield) on the streets of Kiev. Would you have photo souvenir too? 🙂
Mascots are an addition to the fun tourists can have while visiting a city. Hollywood Boulevard have bumblebees, spidermen, elmo and every other character Hollywood has ever created. Vienna has Mozart impostors, Charlie Chaplin look alikes and painted statues and you’d find them in Barcelona, in Venice, in New York too…well, for a euro, a dollar or two, take a pic just for the fun of it!
