Hyatt Resorts toy box program makes family travel fun and educational for children of all ages
Tuesday 16, November 2010
Hyatt Resorts today announced the new Toy Box program, a family friendly amenity designed to remove some of the challenges faced by parents when traveling with children.
Filled with an assortment of age-appropriate toys and games for toddlers to tweens, the Hyatt Resorts Toy Box has everything a family needs to make their vacation enjoyable. The Hyatt Resorts Toy Box is powered by Toy Tips, a premiere toy testing group that does not accept payment from toy companies and thoroughly reviews toys independently through the Toy Tips Research Institute. Toy Tips carefully chooses toys based on age, educational value, and special circumstances.
Just in time for the holiday season, parents no longer need to worry about packing favorite toys because guests will be able to choose and check out fun toys during their stay. Parents will feel relieved to know that each one was tested by the Toy Tips Research Institute and is accompanied by a detailed toy report card with ratings of developmental skills their child will be learning during play.
Upon arrival at a participating Hyatt resort in the U.S. and Caribbean, families can review a Toy Box book which lists 24 toys available for complimentary check-out during their stay. From LEGO® to Tonka trucks to board games, toys are available for four different age groups, including toddler, preschool, school age, and tween as well as a whole category for families of all ages. Once returned, toys are thoroughly inspected for any broken pieces and are then cleaned with Toy Tips Toy Cleaner, a non-chemical, eco-friendly cleaner, before it is checked out by the next guest.
“Traveling with children is a unique challenge, and bringing their favorite toys can be even trickier,” said Carlos Cabrera, senior vice president of field operations, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts. “With the Hyatt Resorts Toy Box, children of all ages can have a fun-filled vacation with toys at their fingertips, helping parents to alleviate the burden of packing and carrying extra luggage.”
Additional family friendly amenities at Hyatt resorts include Camp Hyatt, one of the first resort programs created especially for kids, which offers fun, hands-on activities focusing on the culture, history and geography of each resort’s surroundings, a dedicated Kids Concierge at each resort, and an exclusive partnership with online retailer Babies Travel Lite, delivering baby products directly to the hotel. These amenities free up parents to enjoy vacation time with their families.
Valuable packages and beautiful surroundings provide families vacationing at a Hyatt resort with a wonderful experience. The Hyatt Family Plan enables guests to add a second room for the kids to their reservation at savings of up to 50% off the “Hyatt Daily Rate.” Visit www.hyatt.com for more information and full details. In addition, each Hyatt resort offers special value and local packages throughout the year.
Hyatt resorts offer authentic, engaging experiences for guests of all ages, including creative children’s programs, world-class Hyatt Pure spas, championship golf in many locations, outdoor activities, and innovative dining options.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
