The Azulitos Kidís Program, designed exclusively for Azul Hotels by Fisher-Price, begins at check-in, when parents receive a colorful brochure detailing services and fun-filled adventures available during their stay. Children are given their own scrapbook-like activity booklet filled with games and areas to chronicle their favorite moments throughout the vacation. Azulitos Kids will also be directed to the Jugueteca, a Toy Lending Library where they can check out the coolest Fisher-Price toys for complete entertainment.

All kids love down-on-the-floor playtime, and they will not be disappointed when they enter the Azulitos Kidís Club Room, a play space designed exclusively for Azul Hotels by Fisher-Price. The colorfully decorated Azulitos Kidís Club Room will be a favorite haven for children under five to have fun and interact together without older kids around. The room will also be used for Fisher-Price playgroup sessions where parents or grandparents can enjoy themed events with the kids like Ritmo de la Manana (active beat) with Fisher-Price musically oriented toys for babies 6 to 18 months; Mundos Maravillosos (marvelous worlds) with Little People(R) toys for toddlers 18 to 36 months, and Planet Heroes(TM) Aventuras Azulares (solar adventures) for kids three to five years old.
