A survey from holiday company, Holiday Gems, has uncovered how kids really view the holiday you’re taking them on and what they’re looking for in their dream holiday.

– 74% of kids would pack a tablet before a bucket and spade for their holiday.

– Nearly half of those questioned chose the USA as their dream holiday spot, with Florida coming out on top.

– Sponge Bob Square Pants and Elsa from Frozen were the characters who are the holiday companions of choice for kids.

Children were quizzed over what they would pack first in their suitcases and the results found an iPad or other tablet ranked above favourite toy, sunglasses or a bucket and spade.

When asked about where they would most like to visit, nearly three quarters plumped for the USA, with Spain following in second place.

Chris Blackwell, sales director at Holiday Gems said: “We wanted to see what dream family holidays are like through a child’s eye view. Families work hard all year to spend time together and create memories on their holiday.

“Perhaps it’s not surprising that a tablet is the favourite thing to pack for a holiday as it becomes a familiar feature in most aspects of family life. We couldn’t believe the little gems the other children we interviewed came out with. Whether it was stitching mum and dad up for letting them eat ice cream for breakfast every day or hoping to visit the casinos in the USA – it was hilarious.”

The company has also created several handy guides for parents travelling with little ones and how they can best prepare to make the most of their holiday:

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
