Children are always spontaneous and increasingly with wills and attitudes themselves, so fly with small is always a delicate situation where parents try to entertain the children don’t get bored or, in the case of the youngest, not to suffer during the flight, especially if the trip is longer.
This week I received a very interesting survey, conducted by the airline British Airways in that reveals the top 10 toys elected to entertain the children and hold their attention during a flight. I thought it was sooo cool I want to share with you the material:
“A major concern of parents flying with children is not knowing how to keep them entertained, so the airline conducted an experiment which was to gather 30 children in a 2 hour flight with a selection of toys. Junior passengers, aged between two and 10 years, were observed for 90 minutes by teacher and TV host Robert Winston and by a team of educational psychologists.
The results showed that the cheapest toys keep kids busy for longer. That’s not too much??? Noodles of modeling and Loom bracelets Bands are at the top of the list, and were elected by 80% of children, which were occupied by more than 40 minutes during the experiment. The result cheered the parents: 70% say that they would take these toys in a flight in the future.
The most popular among the small toy of 2-5 years of age was the Clay to model. Already a favorite among the 5 to 10 years of age was the Loom Bands. Timeless classics such as Lego and Top Trumps cards, also this age range, keeping them entertained during an average of 37 and 33 minutes, respectively.
“Although the will of the parents is that your son falls asleep, like Lego toys, stickers, books and travel games are also a great way to keep them involved. Present different toys at regular intervals is an alternative to keep them entertained for over 90 minutes, “says professor Robert Winston.
In a survey of 2,000 people, 25% of respondents said they are concerned about the possibility of your children disturb the other passengers, while more than half are concerned about the interruption of your child’s sleep routine.
Dr. Vivian Hill, educational psychologist, says: “the toys which arouse the imagination and encourage creativity, rather than static toys, such as stuffed animals and dolls, are proven to keep the kids busy for longer”.
The airline made the list of the ten best toys to take on the plane:
1) Loom Bands
4) Top Trumps
6) activity cards
7) Magnetic travel Game
8) Aquadoodle’s Dora!
10) sticker book
According to Dr. Vivian Hill, here are some tips for a stress-free flight with the children:
Have drinks during takeoff and landing, so that the little ones aren’t as affected by air pressure, since children suffer more consequences than adults.
Buy new toys and games for the flight.Latest toys the entertains any longer according to homethodology.
Present different toys at regular intervals.Involve them and give them as gifts.
Focus on activities that encourage creativity instead of static objects such as dolls and stuffed animals.
Finger puppets and activity cards are the toys may entertain for much longer.
Think about games you don’t need to carry around.Verbal games like I Spy, 20 Questions are good ways to pass the time.
If it is a flight, take a pair of pajamas.Let the children ready for sleep will help to avoid disturbing your sleep pattern.”
