Firefighter Robby is 10-ft tall inflatable costume. He is requested to attend community events and fairs.
The costume includes a fan that inflates him (and can be blown on the wearer's face as needed), and fan batteries. He is always accompanied by a Guide Person who hands out fire badge stickers and protects him from curious onlookers.
Firefighter Robby lets children approach him on their own to wave and hi-five each other. He is quite large and doesn't want to scare kids or adults. He accommodates picture takers wherever he goes.
