Toy Story 4's Forky comes to DXB International Airport

Create your own character and learn about sustainability this July

Toy Story 4's Forky comes to DXB International Airport

Toy Story 4 spawned an unlikely hero in Forky (the ever-so-adorable trash-loving spork), which subtly/unsubtly helps teach kids about the value of recycling.

And DXB has decided to get in on the action by helping to teach little ones about the values of sustainability this summer, with the help of Toy Story 4 – and that’s something we can all get behind.

Throughout July, you can visit any of the Toy Story 4 activity stations dotted around each of the airport’s four concourses. At said stations, you (and the kids) will learn how to transform recyclable materials and create your very own Forky.

But it doesn’t stop there, because there’s a competition to find Forky running throughout the month, and there’s a chance to win a family trip to Paris.

“This summer we are making the topic of recycling fun for children and the young at heart with some of the much-loved characters from Toy Story 4, by inviting them to bring their single-use plastics to our craft stations and helping them turn it into their own toy,” said Matt Horobin, Director of Brand Engagement at Dubai Airports. “Last month we announced our intention to eliminate single-use plastics from all customer areas of our two airports and this is an interesting way of bringing our younger customers on the journey with us by showing them how important it is to be mindful of what we consider trash.”

It’s a great chance to teach the kids all about sustainability, in a fun, engaging way.
