Gatwick Airport’s story corner

Anyone who’s travelled with little ones knows it can be a little stressful. We were very impressed when we saw the latest initiative by our friends at Gatwick Airport.

In a worlds first, the team at Gatwick has partnered with Soundcloud to offer a selection of audio books to entertain, intrigue and delight children (of any age!) It means young travellers going through the airport can listen to their favourite stories like Three Little Pigs, The Ugly Duckling and (my personal favourite) Sleeping Beauty. The plan is to launch more before the summer’s out.

We love it because; it’s a really lovely way of taking a few minutes to relax with your mini-me before hopping on your flight. As well as that we think traditional stories never go out of fashion and we love the way forward thinking Gatwick and Soundcloud are mixing old and new to make your journey better.

But how does it work?

It’s simple to access whenever it suits you during your time in the airport. You can use mobile internet through whatever device you carry, or access via the airport’s Boingo service, for 15 minutes of free service.

Check out Gatwick Airport’s Soundcloud profile or through the Soundcloud iPhone or iPad app, just search for Gatwick. It’s also available via the Soundcloud Android app, or through the Google Play store.

We love their idea and can’t wait to see what new stories will be added over the summer!

    Ohh, what a lovely idea! That sounds like a great way for people to get their work noticed and impress some little ones at the same time.

    I might have a go myself! 🙂
