“Masklophobia” means fear of masks or mascots; well, Sarah is having this phobia since she was small. She will afraid to see lion dance, clowns, Santa Claus, mascots or any person who dressed up in costume. Like most thing in life, the more she loathe, the more times she bumped into them.

As Sarah grows up, she tried to fight the fear by watching them on You Tube. We constantly explained to her what mascots actually are, and she seems to get it, but somehow she still will panic and intimidate by their presence. We know she already tried hard to overcome her fear.

There is one time we saw a Yakult mascot at a shopping mall, and he is giving out balloons. Sarah felt struggle because she wish to get one but she was afraid being closed to him. Finally under our encouragement, she summons enough courage to give it a try and she even shakes the mascot’s hand and took photo with him. Yes!


After the incident, Sarah has become braver. To proof that it is not a one-off, we then brought her to the see Doraemon and Nobita. We were amazed that she’s agreed to take picture with them without hesitation.

Keep it up, girl, well done.

Is it? Did not know that he is a big fans of Doraemon. I guess he must have some merchandise items of Doraemon.
