The first Jantar Express with the Little Traveler Zone will start its journey from the Warszawa Wschodnia station at 6:17 a.m.
PKP Intercity in cooperation with the Boomerang TV channel prepared a non-compartment second class car with a special play zone for children. The car, besides regular seats, is fitted with colorful equipment for the little travelers where they can spend time on creative play.
The zone has been designed in such a way that the drawings on the walls become a part of counting, shape recognition and color naming game. The traveling children will face various challenges such as: finding the differences in the pictures placed on the ceiling or leading a character through picture mazes drawn under the windows. The room has been equipped with a chalk board and comfy poufs which can also be used as soft play blocks. To while away the time of the journey, the car is fitted with screens displaying the series from the well-known Boomerang’s Cartoonito segment. The little travelers will be able to watch the adventures of friendly and always helpful “Bananas in Pyjamas”, the singing characters of “Jelly Jamm” and forever playful “Ha Ha Hairies”.
The toilets have been equipped with diaper changing stations and the corridor has room for baby carriages and additional space for sizeable luggage. The whole car, inside and outside, is adorned with the images of popular Cartoonito characters known to children from the Boomerang channel.
In addition to the play zone, Wars company has prepared the “Kids’ Menu” in which the youngest will find such dishes as omelet with jam or chicken nuggets in breadcrumbs.
“The project with the Boomerang channel answers the needs of our youngest and most demanding clients. The uniquely designed traveler zone will not allow for boredom during the journey. Additionally, all the children will be able to try out the new menu particularly prepared for them by Wars company” – says Janusz Malinowski, President of PKP Intercity.
“The mission of Boomerang’s Cartoonito segment for preschoolers is to while away the time for them and their family. It is common knowledge that children get bored when traveling. Therefore, organizing an interesting form of entertainment for them has become a perfect challenge for us. We are curious how the little travelers will react to the unusual way of interacting with Boomerang and Cartoonito. We hope that the idea will be appreciated both by children and parents” – says Małgorzata Chapman, marketing and PR director for Turner Broadcasting System in the Central and Eastern Europe and the Benelux.
