My two year old was captivated by Shae and could relate to her throughout the process.
I liked that the DVD addressed common issues that children face in an airport and on an airplane -
going through security (putting their belongings on the moving belt),
not kicking the seat ahead of them, "pop" of the ears, etc.
Even though this is intended for toddlers, I believe it would be informative for ANY child who is preparing for a flight.
Thank you for creating this professional, informative, developmentally appropriate DVD-
this will make a difference for many people:
the children that learn from watching it, the parents of these prepared children, and the other passengers onboard-
NOT affected by kicked seats or screaming kids!
I am excited to include this tool on my website JetWithKids. Thank you!
First off, it's not a toolkit as it might suggest. It's a DVD with some luggage tags. Don't expect much more than that. Secondly the DVD itself is pretty poorly produced and dated. I'm not sure why Shae's mom had dress on the scantily side (shorter skirt with fishnet stockings. shocking? no, but seriously, who thought that outfit would look good?) The video was pretty slow moving for our younger child, was fine for our older one but was really hard to watch for the adults. (I recommend sitting with them to explain what's going on in the video and to keep them jazzed about the content. such as "hey look how cool it is to have your own special luggage!") OK, I'm being nitpicky. Moving on...
Most importantly, how does this video prepare your child for air travel? It was incredible. Our daughter completely related to Shae and remembered all of the tips and tricks outlined in the film. Children are imitators after all, and watching someone model the expectations really sticks in their little minds. Our daughter would say, "ok now it's time to go through the beeping gate (metal detector) and I'm not going to be scared like Shae wasn't scared or "Shae showed me not to kick the seat so (brother's name) don't kick the seat because it's ouwee for that person". I was pretty dang impressed. 6 hours over the Pacific Ocean and back, not one fit was thrown by either child. (trust me, our kids are no angels)
To summarize, DVD is expensive, outdated, somewhat boring and Shae's mom's outfit is questionable but it does what it's advertised to do and that's to model what being a good little traveler looks like. Give it a try, you may be surprised.
surprise and delight, turned out to be a "very good little traveler." I'm convinced preparation using this DVD was the key to flights that were enjoyable for him, his parents and grandparents and all other passengers.
I would highly recommend this to anyone travelling with a toddler!
This is a wonderful and very professionally made and edited DVD. My 2 year old daughter was absolutely fascinated and had no trouble understanding the "plot". I bought it to prepare her for a 5 hour flight to Guatemala and it really did help. She took the whole airport and flight experience in stride, with many references to Shea, and was very happy and excited to be traveling just like Shea does. She even took care not to bounce or kick the seat in front of her because in the video Shea learns not to do this. This is a great product for any child about to take a plane flight or indeed any child simply interested in airports and planes.

Short, annoying, and my little girl lost interest really really quickly, if this were a dollar or so it would have been worth it, but not this.Published on November 18, 2013 by Lee
This was outdated, didn't really interest my child. I think if it were updated a little bit it would be better. I bought this for my son before we took a long trip on a plane. Read morePublished on September 10, 2013 by Indyrt29
