Buying a one-week trip to Barcelona can be an interesting alternative to an adventurous vacation or novel present for kids.

There are more than 2 billion cuddly toys and teddy bears worldwide and many people have a close relationship with them. Buying a one-week trip to Barcelona can be an interesting alternative to an adventurous vacation or novel present for kids. Barcelona Toy Travel is now spreading this new trend also outside of Europe, to North America and Asia.

“Our goal is not only to arrange relaxing holidays for cuddly toys, but to show the historical and cultural treasures of the Catalan capital. Barcelona is an ideal place for such a combination: historical and modern monuments, beautiful beaches, romantic street corners, hills and beautiful views,” explains Daniel Bacho, the owner of Barcelona Toy Travel.

Bacho, was inspired by the French movie Amelie. In this movie, Amelie sent her father's garden gnome traveling around the world and subsequently sent pictures of the travelling gnome to her father.

Barcelona Toy Travel offers packages that differ in the extent of services and activities included. For example, ordering the cheapest package, called LowCost, from Europe costs €70 ($90); from USA or Japan it is €90 ($120). Advanced packages called Explorer and Pro-Traveller include, among other items, traditional meals, a trip to an amusement park, or a meeting and picnic with other traveling cuddly toys on a beautiful beach. All the packages include daily email communication with the owner, a personal Facebook profile of the toy, a number of high-quality printed photographs and a CD with pictures of the trip and more.

Bacho further adds: “For architecture lovers we offer trips around architectural masterpieces by world-famous architect Antonio Gaudí and for football fans a visit to the largest football stadium in Europe, Camp Nou, and a trip to a unique interactive museum of FC Barcelona. In the near future we are preparing a visit to Corrida (bullfighting) and the museum of this traditional Spanish show.”
