In my carry-on bag, I usually have a few toys, some books and our high-tech secret weapon (only to be pulled out when all else fails): an iPhone loaded up with a few kids games. Access to mom or dad's phone is a surprisingly appealing treat, and we've worked our way out of some very sticky situations by handing over the phone. It helps that the phone is always within easy reach.
Last week my friends Hillel, Walter and Jenny released Hippo Hooray a set of three iPhone apps just for Preschool age kids. Each one is beautifully illustrated and focuses on a different theme (shapes, letters or colors). D (who just turned three) has been really enjoying these, and each of the Hippo Hooray games is easy enough to use that D can launch and play it on her own. These would be great for a long plane ride or road trip. For a limited time HippoHooray Shapes is free at HippoHooray.com. Colors and Letters are only 99 cents each.
