Emirates introduces kids’ toys to ensure fun flying
August 16, 2018—Emirates, the Dubai-based carrier, has introduced new toys from the Emirates Fly with Me collection and Lonely Planet Kids activity kit bags for children travelling in all classes.
The new range of toys will come in the top four favourite characters, as voted by customers and fans in a social media competition held last year.
Of the 17 characters Emirates introduced on board in the last three years, the top four characters chosen for the new products are Lewis the Lion, Peek U the Panda, Ernie the Penguin, and Savanna the Elephant. The new collection will be on board all flights and across all classes from this month.
On short haul flights, the brand new product range includes a vibrating plush for infants up to 2 years old. The cuddly companion can be re-used and attached to the stroller when baby and parents are on the move. Emirates has also introduced a new range to cater specially to children aged three to six years old.
They will receive a travel case sketcher which includes puzzles, games and stickers to keep them busy on flight. On long haul flights, infants will be given a dual purpose plush toy with a printed activity blanket while older kids will receive a plush backpack with activity kits.
Emirates continues to offer its popular Fly with Me Lonely Planet Kids activity bags in brand new designs and colours to inspire older children to explore more of the world. Kids will receive retro, travel-themed bags filled with educational travel books and activities designed exclusively for Emirates. The bags contain amazing world facts, creative crafts, collectible destination socks and more. The Fly with Me Lonely Planet Kids range is offered to children aged between seven and 12 years old.
The Fly with Me magazine is also available on board featuring puzzles, jokes and activities for children aged three to eight years old.
Parents travelling with infants will receive an amenity kit especially for baby. The pouch features Emirates’ iconic Little Traveler characters and contains essentials such as a bib, spoon, baby wipes, changing mat, diaper rash cream and small diaper bag for a comfortable journey.
Emirates’ award-winning in-flight entertainment system, ice, offers up to 3,500 channels and more than 100 kids channels in 40 languages to keep the whole family entertained in flight. This summer’s latest blockbusters include Avengers Infinity War, Isle of Dogs, Rampage and Tomb Raider. There are over 180 episodes of dedicated children’s content including hit family movies like Coco, Ferdinand and Peter Rabbit. Young travelers can enjoy the in-flight entertainment using specially designed headphones with a comfortable fit and great sound quality. New language videos from uTalk also give customers a chance to learn a few new words from the countries they are visiting.
Over 170 aircraft are equipped with Live TV featuring this summer’s sports tournaments as they happen and real time news updates. Wi-Fi is available on 99% of the Emirates fleet and customers across all cabins can enjoy 20mb of free data. Emirates Skywards members can enjoy unlimited free Wi-Fi or discounted data plans throughout their flight, depending upon their tier and the cabin that they are flying in.
