Helping Children Become Good PeopleCaptain McFinn & the Unsmashable Ship


(Barboursville, WV)- The Huntington Mall is getting ready to set sail with its newest addition from Captain McFinn and Friends. The Unsmashable Pirate Ship is a unique, one of a kind attraction to be located in center court. This 26 foot ship will be the backdrop to the new and exciting children’s Tuesday Toddler program with Club McFinn Junior; whose mission is to help children become good people. Prior to the arrival of the Unsmashable, the Huntington Mall has teamed up with Captain McFinn and Friends and the Cabell County Family Resource Network to provide weekly activities each Tuesday at 11am in Center Court.  The first Tuesday Toddler event will be on Tuesday, April 26th and will focus on the pro-social lesson of being kind to the environment. The program will begin with a fun lesson focusing on the environment, an activity that will allow children to hone their gardening skills with ice-cream cone planters. The event will finish with a story and meet and greet with Captain McFinn. Since April 26th is also National Pretzel Day, Auntie Anne’s Pretzel will be giving the children present, pretzel samples and special offers to parents and/or guardians. This is a free program, membership to Club McFinn Junior is free and automatic by just participating in the events. The Tuesday Toddler Program with Club McFinn Junior is a wonderful opportunity developed to teach children and adults important pro-social lessons in an entertaining way with fun activities and stories. Some of the pro-social life lessons will include sharing, kindness, bullying prevention, empathy and other important skills readying a child for the big world around them.

Each month will focus on a specific theme with each Tuesday providing a lesson, fun activity, story time, and a Meet-and-Greet with Captain McFinn. There will be fun handouts for the children to take home as well as other little surprises each week. Club McFinn Junior will meet every Tuesday at 11am in Center Court of the Huntington Mall.
