Hot Spot: Smashbox Studio, Culver City, CA

Celebrities, advocates, and families together celebrated Safe Kids Day at Smashbox Studios in Culver City, Calif. on Sunday to raise awareness and funds to support the life-saving work of Safe Kids Worldwide, a nonprofit organization working to protect kids from preventable injuries.

Highlights from the event included:

· Families, including those of James Van Der Beek and Perez Hilton, enjoyed magic shows from members of the famous Magic Castle that left children in awe and with smiles on their faces.

· Actress Asia Monet Ray got up close and personal at the special educational petting zoo that included meet-and-greets with crawly tarantulas and a very friendly capuchin monkey that was more than happy to climb atop children’s heads.

· A pop-up skate park on site allowed kids to try out their skills while educating them about safety and helmet importance when skateboarding and bike riding.

· An oversized kitchen walkthrough activation gave parents a child’s perspective when they wander into the kitchen and face potential dangers.
