Product Description

An engaging story that prepares children for traveling on an airplane, Shae by Air details the JOURNEY, not the destination. Told from a young child's perspective, Shae by Air is a fun, educational way to prepare young children for the long lines and the security checkpoint (removing shoes and coats, walking through the beeping metal detector), the ear popping that accompanies takeoff and landing, as well as how to entertain and behave themselves while flying (no kicking the seats!). Your child will want to be a Good Little Traveler, just like Shae! Designed and filmed with the input of child behavior specialists, the premise of each of the DVD Toolkits is that children, even small ones, have the capacity to understand what to expect and what is expected of them, and with that the ability to be respectful good little travelers. The Toolkits are recommended for Children, ages 2-6.

This is an incredible tool to prepare your child for air travel.
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!

I definitely had mixed emotions about purchasing this product. It's fairly expensive and the cover looks a little dated. However, because we were going to take our first trans-ocean flight as a family with a 3 1/2 year old girl and a 1 1/2 year old boy, my wife and I decided to give it a try.

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.

Although Shea by Air is intended for children two years and up, we used the DVD to prepare our 16-month old grandson for a trip from Minneapolis to Kauai, Hawaii involving many hours and three plane changes. He intently focused on Shea and preparations for the trip, what would happen at the airport and on the plane. After viewing and talking about Shea both before and during the flight, this very active toddler, much to our

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.

We are preparing to move from Florida to Australia and bought this DVD after seeing the reviews. Though we have not yet made the trip, this video captivated our 2 & 3 year old boys. They love Shae and have become fascinated with airplanes, the security line, not kicking the seat in front of you... etc.

I would highly recommend this to anyone travelling with a toddler!

As a pediatric therapist working with children for the past 7 years, I was thrilled to have found Shae by Air. Shae by Air is a wonderful, step-by step story of a little girl, named Shae, getting ready for her first trip by air. So many children do not know what to expect when they travel in an airplane for the first time, much less what to expect of the airport. Children love to watch videos, and Shae By Air gives the child a visual of what everything looks like and what to expect before they get there. Shae by Air covered everything from going through the security checkpoints in the airport to proper etiquette and how to pass time on the airplane. Shae by Air eases so much anxiety about flying in both the little ones and their parents. I was excited to see that Shae by Air comes with a packing check off list and a personalized luggage tag, which is a fabulous idea to give the child an opportunity to truly become part of the flying experience. Shae by Air is an ingenious and much needed video. I am thrilled to have findly found a video that will benefit everyone who travels by air with a child; and I can not wait for the rest of the series to be made!

I HIGHLY recommend this DVD, especially if you are traveling alone 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.
