Kids attending the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits this year are in for lots of fun and festivities at the Eddie Eagle booth. Equipped with a range of educational materials and exciting giveaways, the Eddie Eagle area will entertain the little ones while providing the tools to teach them firearm accident prevention through Eddie’s gun safety message: STOP! Don’t Touch. Run Away. Tell a Grown Up.
Along with watching the 8-minute Eddie Eagle video which delivers this important message as Eddie helps his friends remember how to stay safe by singing his favorite song, kids will also be able to interact with the Eddie Eagle website featuring lessons, storybooks, sing-alongs and coloring pages on iPads at the booth. Plus, Eddie himself will be there to meet and take photos with his young fans and followers!
The Eddie Eagle booth is completely free of charge, including the safety materials available for parents and grandparents to take home and learn more about gun safety. All visitors will be able to spin the prize wheel and leave with souvenirs, too, including Eddie Eagle stuffed animals, Wing Team backpacks and bracelets, and fidget spinners.
Last year, Eddie celebrated his 30th birthday at NRA Annual Meetings. For three decades the Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program has been teaching firearm accident prevention, reaching more than 31 million kids with its lifesaving message.
