GRAPEVINE, Texas, Dec. 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Dog Air, a U. S. manufacturer of handcrafted, museum-quality toy airport sets, offers memorable, lifelong gifts for airplane enthusiasts ages three to 93 this holiday season.

Red Dog Air's Original Airport Set™ features museum-quality, yet kid-friendly construction with its contemporary designed terminal building and vibrant tarmac. The clear acrylic walls and roof provide beauty and function and allow the viewer to see through the building to whatever the mind can imagine. The set includes a folding tarmac and runway game board, a hand-made acrylic terminal building, two American Airlines® 767 die-cast airplanes, a hand-made acrylic air traffic control tower, and a two-year family membership to the Red Dog Cockpit™.

"Red Dog Air was inspired by our son who has a passion for airplanes. As parents and airplane enthusiasts ourselves, we identified a need for toys that incorporate imagination and learning into a fun and relevant play experience," said Jonell Bowles, founder of Red Dog Air. "Additionally, the heirloom-quality of our airport sets and accessories are designed for airport enthusiasts and collectors of all ages and are created to be passed down through generations."

Bowles continues, "Red Dog is in the process of connecting the actual play experience of the Original Airport Set with the Red Dog Cockpit, thus adding a virtual element. Accessible from our website, the Red Dog Cockpit provides configurable controls and dozens of audio messages from real flight operations, air traffic controllers, pilots and flight attendants to stimulate imagination and build a memorable flight experience."

Additional Red Dog Aircraft toys include die cast airplanes and helicopters. The company also has a line of Authentic Red Dog Gear including T-shirts, classic-styled hats and stickers.
