From now on there
is another great eye-catcher in the shops of the AIDA ships: Zottel, the green,
fluffy soft cuddly animal has moved in on board and is looking forward to new
The story behind Zottel is just as extraordinary as the stuffed animal itself:
its inventor is Anna-Lina (10 years) from Magdeburg. She took part in
the cruise company's big clubbie
painting campaign in January
2017, and created a friend for the four AIDA Clubbies, Alwine, Itzi,
Dodo and Achwasachwas.
The jury was particularly won over by the character of
Anna-Lina's Zottel. Her imaginary cuddly toy loves laughing, likes being
tickled and enjoys eating. On top of that, he is ultra cuddly and soft because
of his shaggy fur – the perfect friend for the Clubbies and all children.
drawing was now turned into a real cuddly toy. Zottel is available for 19.95
euros from the onboard stores of the AIDA ships and from the AIDA online store
(plus delivery charges). And the
best thing about it:For each Zottel sold, 5 euros will be donated to the
children's charity, SOS Kinderdorf e.V. This will be a strictly limited
edition, and each Zottel will have its own serial number.
Of course, the
first produced Zottel with the serial number 1 went to his inventor Magdeburg.
More than 6,000 creative ideas from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg
and of course from the AIDA ships were submitted for the competition.
