Misters and misses
18 / 07 / 2016
We’re not sure why the world needs yet another character in the ‘Mr Men’ mould but junior holidaymakers jetting off from Heathrow will be able to look out for a Mr Adventure this summer. He pops up on special signage just for kids in security, in the free play areas in all terminals and yet again on ‘kids eat free’ menus available in every terminal.
And the man himself will be hosting themed activities and workshops, posing for photos and handing out activity booklets, sticker sheets and jelly treats to keep kids entertained.
If that isn’t enough, you can follow his six-part Heathrow adventure on Heathrow’s Youtube site.
The avowed aim of the airport is to make sure everyone’s journey is a smooth one, though with 330,000 families with kids expected to travel between now and September, there are bound to be some mishaps. Over-indulgence in the aforementioned jelly treats or the sicklier sections of the kids menu leading to an ‘in-flight emergency’, for example. Surely more of a job for his sister, Miss Adventure?
Or what about Daddy being turfed off the plane at an obscure North American airport after getting stuck into the in-flight duty free- being led away in handcuffs by local law enforcement officer Miss D. Meenor?
And whose fault is it if you spend hours locked inside the terminal at New York JFK because your incoming flight was late and the next one isn’t till the next day (apart from Daddy, of course)? That’ll be our old friend, Mister Connection.
