The Savannah Mall Hosted Caring Easter Bunny For Children with Different Abilities

Standard

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Caring Bunny greeted families at the lower level of Center Court in the Savannah Mall, located at 14045 Abercorn St. With an atmosphere free from bright, flashing lights, or high-energy music, all children with different abilities were invited to meet Caring Bunny at this free event.

“We wanted to offer a chance for children with different abilities to meet with an Easter icon,” said Phil McConnell, Savannah Mall’s general manager. “Savannah Mall’s Caring Bunny greets children in a calm environment, in an effort to make the Easter Bunny experience enjoyable for everyone.”

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s most recent data suggests an average of one in 110 children have an autism spectrum disorder. Autistic children’s senses can be oversensitive or under-developed, which affects how they experience different environments, making background noises unbearably loud or confusing. This can cause anxiety or even physical pain. For more information on the CDC’s information on autism, visit http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/features/counting-autism.html

During their visit with the Caring Bunny, families were be given a 5 x 7 photograph from the visit, and a complimentary ride on the children’s train. For more information, visit www.savannahmall.com

Get Up Close and Personal with a Life-Size Dinosaur at Savannah Mall

Standard

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Savannah Mall invites the public to meet Rexie the T-Rex at Center Court on Saturday, October 3. This anatomically perfect puppet stands over 8’ tall and 12’ long, providing kids and their families the opportunity to learn about this “king” of the dinosaurs that roamed what is now the U.S. and Canada during the Cretaceous Period, about 65 million years ago.

But this gentler juvenile version of the world’s largest carnivore will also offer a unique interactive opportunity to make friends and take pictures.

“Everyone loves to get face-to-face with Rexie, the life-size baby T-Rex,” said Becky Orsi-Faircloth, Savannah Mall’s marketing/specialty leasing manager. “Rexie is a realistic, walk-around puppet who is very entertaining, as well as educational.”

Rexie the T-Rex’s show times are 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. There is no cost to participate. The Savannah Mall is located at 14045 Abercorn Street. For more information about this event, call (912) 927-7467.
