Kat McNamara, Karan Brar & Kpf's Star Reporter Party on the Pier!

14 October 2014 11:21 PM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Mattel, the creator of games and all things fun, has found a way to bring fun, philanthropy, celebrity, and an extraordinary experience all in one event. Mattel's annual Party at the Pier is so very special - young movie and TV stars gather at the Santa Monica Pier alongside kids who are patients at Mattel's Children's Hospital for a day of fun. It sounds exclusive, but it's not - regular people can attend too by buying tickets (that's how they raise money for the Children's Hospital!). In fact, KidsPickFlicks' Cole and Riley have attended for several years, riding rides alongside stars like Peyton List and Olivia Holt.

This year, our own Star Reporter Cassandra Hsiao, covered the event for Byou Magazine (scroll down to see video). She spoke to celebs like "Happyland" star (and Kpf Movie Star Movie Critic) Kat McNamara, "Jessie" star Karan Brar, "Mighty Med's" Paris Berelc, »

"I would love to have Peabody as a dad," says Ariel Winter, who plays bratty Penny. "He's super smart. I would love that if I could just have his knowledge."

"The best thing would be the looks you get when you're walking down the street with a talking dog and you're calling the dog, dad," says Joshua Rush, who voices Sherman's wheelchair-bound friend, Carl. "The worst thing would be slobber and stuff, I mean, I don't know how Sherman puts up with that."
