Celebrate Family This July With Jim Henson's Pajanimals and AMTRAK!


JULY BRINGS FAMILY REUNIONS & VACATIONS AND A NATIONAL PAJANIMALS’ SWEEPSTAKES WITH AMTRAK SO PACK YOUR BAGS FOR A MONTH OF PAJANIMALS’ FUN AND ADVENTURE!
 
July is National Family Reunion Month and an opportunity to win big with an all-new national “Pajanimals Pack Your Pajamas Sweepstakes” with Amtrak

Visiting with seldom seen family members can be loads of fun, and if you choose to travel by train, you can make the journey to your family’s reunion an exciting part of your child’s summer vacation experience.   Think about it.  Rather than fighting traffic, scheduling potty and snack breaks and trying to keep kids entertained on a long car trip, you can travel by train and actually spend quality time with your children while sharing a memorable adventure.  

 
Amtrak offers some interesting vacation suggestions and discounts for family travel, as well as a special Kids Depot webpage (http://www.amtrak.com/whistle-stop/kids-depot), complete with games, activities and downloads covering a variety of topics like trains, geography, the environment, memory-building, problem-solving and much more.  Kids can use the site to even make and send their own e-cards from the family laptop while aboard the train.  Once aboard the train, you and your family will enjoy spectacular views, can get up and move around, visit the dining car or restroom, read train stories and play games, even take a nap together, arriving at your destination rested, happy and stress free.

The Jim Henson Company, a leader in family entertainment for over 50 years, is partnering with Amtrak this July for a special “Pajanimals’ Pack Your Pajamas Sweepstakes.”  Families can enter the sweepstakes beginning July 1, 2013 by logging onto http://www.henson.com/PJsweepstakes/ and following the entry directions.


The “Pajanimals’ Pack Your Pajamas Sweepstakes” will award one Grand Prize of four round-trip coach tickets on Amtrak, a Flip video camera and a 4-piece large plush set of Pajanimals from TomyFive First Prize winners will receive HeysUSA Amtrak luggage and a Pajanimals Adventure Game from Briarpatch and 10 Second Prize winners will receive an Amtrak branded hoodie and the “Pajanimals Playdate” DVD from NCircle Entertainment.  The sweepstakes ends July 31, 2013, just in time to take the family on an exciting vacation adventure via Amtrak.

 
As part of the national summer promotion, Amtrak will promote the “Pajanimals’ Pack Your Pajamas Sweepstakes” and entry details through counter cards and seatbacks in over 100 Amtrak stations nationwide.  Amtrak will also distribute free Pajanimals’ themed activity booklets to young travelers and Pajanimals will be featured on placemats for use in Amtrak’s dining cars.
