    Have you ever walked through an airport and seen a toddler gripping an iPhone in their stroller? Kids apps, and kids playing on tablets and smartphones are becoming an increasingly familiar sight. Why? For one, they are being entertained, and two, let's be honest, it gives the parents and grandparents a break. Here are a few top-notch apps for your kids to take with them on their next trip, whether they are playing by themselves or you want to join in the fun.

    Best apps for long plane rides
    PBS Kids Video | Free | Ages 2–9 | iPhone & IPadSave money (and time) downloading videos to your iPad before a trip. The PBS Kids Video app has several clips from your child’s favorite shows like Dinosaur Train, Sid the Science Guy, Sesame Street, Curious George, The Electric Company, Martha Speaks and more. Use the browse function to see a list of what’s available, including a smattering of full episodes.

    Draw and Tell by Duck Duck Moose (HD) | $1.99 | Ages 2–9 | iPhone & iPadThis is the ultimate coloring book. From the same award-winning children’s app developer that brought you Wheels on the Bus and Word Wagon, this coloring book is more extensive than others you’ll find in the App Store. There are 27 colors and you can use crayons, paints or pencils to color your drawings on a blank page, or ready-to-color scenes. The patterns and stickers are good fun, and you can even record your voice to tell a story or to send your creation as a greeting card.

    Monkey Preschool Lunchbox | $1.99 | Ages 1–4 | iPhone, iPad & AndroidA squealing, jumping, silly monkey teaches your child how to count fruit, build shapes, match objects and more. This is a fun way to learn the basics for your youngest of travelers. A great game for your child to start playing even before they start preschool.
