Mrs. Pinkelmeyer, Silliest Warmest Know-It-All, and her lovable sidekick Moopus McGlinden inspire self-esteem in children through their love warmth and silliness.
Moopus McGlinden and Singin With Susan will be performing along with Santa at a Breakfast with Santa this Saturday December 10 at 8:30 am. They will be at the Town Center mall in Boca Raton, FL. Moopus is loved by all that know him and he warms the hearts of children and families.
Mrs. Pinkelmeyer and Moopus McGlinden were created in a quick thinking move by Jennifer Kelman while she was taking care of her nephew while his parents were away. Henry was suffering terribly from separation anxiety and Kelman could not do anything to calm his anxieties until from out of her imagination sprung Mrs. Pinkelmeyer.
Kelman picked up the telephone and pretended to call the lovely fictitious character of Mrs. Pinkelmeyer. “Of course she had a British accent, as I did not think my NY accent would be funny to my nephew,” Kelman says. She answered the phone in her usual happy fashion and began to make Henry giggle and laugh with tales of Moopus’ adventures. Henry laughed so hard that he forgot how much he missed his parents. Mrs. Pinkelmeyer came to the rescue that cold winter evening many years ago and since then has been delighting families all over the country.
Kelman has now brought these characters to life and created a complete product line including plush dolls, music and a book series based on the adventures of Mrs. Pinkelmeyer and Moopus McGlinden.
Both characters have also been developed into mascot costumes and can be seen around town doing events such as this one at the Town Center Mall in Boca Raton. “They dance with the kids and give hugs and it is a great feeling. And now to be paired with Santa, I couldn’t be more pleased,” says Kelman.
This won’t be the only event, so stay tuned for more Mrs. Pinkelmeyer and Moopus McGlinden happenings by visiting with us.
