A visit to the Easter Bunny is as big a deal as seeing Santa in some families, and this year, Simon Malls will have the hoppity guy on hand as they partner up with Universal Studios Home Entertainment and the DVD release of the movie HOP.
Here’s a list of activities sent over by the publicist company working with Atlanta-area Simon Malls:
“Mall of Georgia and Town Center at Cobb invite area kids and parents to attend a family-friendly Easter Photo Experience event, taking place through the holiday. Kids will have the chance to visit with the sought-after Easter Bunny and get ready for the Blu-ray™/DVD release of HOP from Universal Studios Home Entertainment on March 23, the all-new comedy about candy, chicks and rock ‘n’ roll, and even meet the movie’s star E.B. in person!
At Gwinnett Place, Northlake Mall, Mall of Georgia and Town Center at Cobb, children can take a photo on a colorful set with the legendary Easter Bunny and a life-sized standee of E.B., the rabbit from HOP who dreams of becoming a rock star drummer. Families will enjoy a sneak peek of the HOP Blu-ray™/DVD while waiting to pose for a picture and receive an engaging HOP activity sheet after capturing their sensational Easter snapshot.
To celebrate the HOP Blu-ray™/DVD launch date on March 23, kids will have the chance to receive an adorable HOP plush character given away randomly every hour, at the top of the hour during the Easter Photo Experience event. Families can visit www.simon.com for additional Easter Photo Experience schedule details.
The Simon Kidgits Clubs at Mall of Georgia and Town Center at Cobb will also host special events on Saturday, March 24 where kids can create their own Easter drum set and jam out to the catchy tune “I Want Candy” at the mall, just like HOP’s hilarious rockin’ rabbit E.B., and participate in various fun, Easter-themed activities. Kids will receive terrific take-home treats, including a set of pencil drumsticks (while supplies last), HOP stickers and an activity sheet. They can also interact with a costumed character E.B. from HOP (Mall of Georgia, 8:30-10 a.m.; Town Center at Cobb 1-3 p.m.).
