Emirates carries new friends for children


Emirates young globe trotters can now enjoy the company of new travel companions with the introduction of a collection of onboard toys.

With two ranges of toys aimed at pre-school and older children, the travel experience for the Dubai-Lusaka-Harare route has been further refined by Emirates to enable young passengers to have an entertaining and memorable journey.

Terry Daly, Emirates divisional senior vice-president, Service Delivery, said Emirates was constantly seeking more dynamic entertainment options for their discerning young travellers.

Families have come to expect the stress-free and enjoyable travel experience Emirates is known for. The introduction of these new toys reinforces our commitment to ensuring that families have access to rich, meaningful entertainment content across multiple platforms, he said.

All Emirates flights will offer a selection of the new toys for pre-schoolers with the Quiksilver products on long-haul flights over five hours. Young flyers can also enjoy the existing range of childrens products including the e-kids magazine, colour pencils, branded Emirates rucksacks and cooler bags, childrens eyeshades and the popular Dr Seuss books.

Daly added that pre-school children could look forward to collecting a range of original monster characters from the Fly With Me Monster collection.

The playful monsters Jimbob, Tezz, Camus and Wagga, each have their own personalities and traits, and are ideal characters to fuel a childs imagination.

Each monster toy comes in three product categories, Blanket Buddies plush characters wrapped around soft polar fleece blankets, Seat Belt Critters little toys worn around a seat belt to encourage safety, and Magnetic Sketchers where Emirates youngest customers can unleash their inner Picasso for hours of creativity and entertainment, he said.

For older children, Emirates is offering a range of new travel-inspired products co-designed with iconic lifestyle brand Quiksilver.

Tapping into the spirit of adventure, travel and the great outdoors, the Quiksilver collection is designed around three themes surfing, snowboarding and skating.

The collection features travel folios aimed at encouraging personalisation and discovery, velcro surf-style wallets with the latest Quiksilver graphics.

The collection also has fun-fact game cards which combine inspirational photography from Quiksilvers own photo archives with Emirates diverse destinations, he added.
