Beginning this summer, Hôtel Plaza Athénée will offer “creature comforts,” including special Babar gift baskets, entertainment and promotional items, for its young guests.

As part of the promotion, guests who book the Hôtel Plaza Athénée children’s package will receive a special Babar gift basket to include 80th anniversary Babar plush and other exclusive Babar merchandise. In addition, the hotel will offer Babar DVDs for in-room entertainment.

The partnership with Hôtel Plaza Athénée is the latest activity surrounding the brand’s 80th anniversary. Babar originated in the 1930s as a bedtime story told to Laurent de Brunhoff and his brother by their mother, Cecile, and first came to life through the art of Laurent’s father, Jean, a painter, who produced seven books about the character. The lovable elephant has appeared in more than 100 books in 17 languages as well as multiple TV series and specials and even a feature-length film.

The Babar brand is managed by Nelvana Enterprises, in collaboration with The Clifford Ross Company.

  1. I loved Babar as a child, and my daughter watches it on Netflix all the time. I really like when I can find the cartoons I watched as a child! Sometimes it's nice to take a break from the computerized/digital stuff and watch regular old hand drawn cartoons :)

  2. I want to win for my younger nephew
