The Best Apps for Toddlers: The ULTIMATE List of Which Apps to Download Before You Travel
13th December 2019
There’s nothing better than a week or two in the sun, or taking the kids to Disneyland. That is of course once you’ve got to your destination after a battling 24 hours with the kids. Because let’s be honest, even if you’re only taking a two hour flight to one of the Costas, all that time spent travelling to the airport, in the airport, on the tarmac and in the airport at your destination, totally adds up to a lot of hours.

As Mums, there’s some sort of horrible guilt feeling when we think of giving our children tablets to keep them busy during long flights or car journeys. I don’t know where this judgement on ourselves comes from, but I remember being given a Game Boy for those long waits at the airport and I LOVED playing the challenging games and it kept me busy for hours giving my Mum and Dad some much deserved peace and quiet. I like to think I turned out alright! (Apart from having an unhealthy obsession for buying Nintendo consoles just so I can play the latest version of Zelda)

So here I’ve compiled a list of the best toddler apps for on the aeroplane that you just HAVE to download before your next trip to keep the kids occupied, making sure the other passengers aren’t disturbed and making your holiday as stress free as possible. After all, you deserve a holiday too!

The Best Toddler Apps for Aeroplane Travel
BBC iPlayer Kids App
Toilet Finder

  1. Disney Jr Play
    Cbeebies Playland
  2. BBC iPlayer Kids App
    An absolute must for access to all of your toddler’s favourite CBeebies shows. The best bit? You can download them in advance if your flight so they’re there, ready and waiting when you’re airborne! Download here.
  3. Toilet Finder
    An absolute life saver when abroad and you need to find a public loo or a cafe you can try and sneak into undetected (naughty but sometimes you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do!) Download here.
  4. Netflix
    The Netflix app is another one where you can pre download TV shows and films to keep little ones occupied during long car trips and flights. What’s better than curling up on a flight and watching Frozen? Download here.
  5. Kidloland

The Kidloland app is hugely popular among parents of toddlers and it’s easy to see why from Vicki’s review. It’s a great learning tool for pre-schoolers helping them to learn colours, vegetables, numbers and nursery rhymes whilst being fun and stimulating too! Download here.

  1. Disney Jr Play
    This app has lots of different games meaning little travellers don’t get bored quickly. Emmy attributes the app to giving her son lots of new skills which is amazing. Download here.
  2. CBeebies Playtime
    This app comes with lots of learning games featuring your little one’s favourite CBeebies characters like the Tellytubbies and the Twirlywoos. Lots of fun to be had and many hours to be whiled away. Download here.

Other packing essentials
Of course the tablet and all the apps that come with it wouldn’t be complete without a few other extras!

Batteries don’t last forever, especially when streaming movies and TV shows so a powerbank (and probably additional powerbanks too!) are vital to make sure the iPad doesn’t run out of juice at 40,000 feet at the crucial moment!
Any Mum worth her salt knows that snacks are absolutely essential to any trip longer than two minutes outside the house. Pack your baby bag to the max with rice cakes, veggie crisps, fruit and whatever else you can lay your hands on to keep hungry stomachs focused on the task at hand.
Headphone will be essential in making sure the noise coming out of your kids’ tablets doesn’t drive you and other passengers crazy.
If these apps don’t get you through the stressful hours of travelling, then try not to worry, we’ve all been there Mama! You will be at your destination soon enough! Happy travelling!

The Best Apps for Baby, Toddler & Preschooler (for plane travel and every day)
I’m excited for my upcoming trip with my husband and 2.5 year old. My son has had very little screen time to date, but I wanted to have some good apps for him for our 11 hour flight. I asked the moms in my Facebook group for their recommendations and got so many responses and positive comments (one mom said “this list is gold”) that I thought I’d compile the recommendations here!

I looked at the description for each app and listed the recommended ages. If I noticed that the app offers in-app purchases, I specified.

A few of the apps seemed good but best suited for babies and young toddlers. I included those at the end of the post.

Toddler and Preschooler Apps
Cookie Monster’s Challenge By PBS KIDS
Made for ages 3-5. This is an educational app.

Elmo Loves ABCs / Elmo Loves 123s
These apps are for ages 5 and under. They teach the letter/numbers identification, letter tracking, letter sounds, etc., and can be personalized. The ABCs app does offer in-app purchases.

Interactive Alphabet ABC’s
This app includes many activities, some are appropriate for age 1+ and some for ages 2-5. One of my friends is a mom of three kids and all of them use it. She says it is fantastic!

Tozzle – Toddler’s favorite puzzle
This is an educational app, built for built for children from age 2 – 99. A couple of moms recommended it.

Injini: Child Development Game Suite
Recommended for ages 1-7. The Injini app was inspired by children with special needs but made for all kids. “Injini’s game developers worked for two years with parents, early childhood educators, and occupational, speech, and cognitive experts to create superior play-based learning experiences that help young children reach developmental milestones. The games were designed for and tested with children with autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and various developmental delays, as well as typically developing preschoolers.”

Dave and Ava
Made for ages five and under.

This app is perfect for a plane ride because you can download videos within the app and watch them offline.

Here is a much less expensive app from the same developers.

Daniel Tiger’s Grr-ific Feelings
Targeting kids ages 2-5, the app is designed to extend the series’ social-emotional curriculum, helping kids identify and express their feelings.

I also came across the Daniel Tiger Potty app, which may be worth exploring.

Dr. Seuss’s ABC – Read & Learn
This app is designed “for early readers.” My husband downloaded this just after my son turned two and they have been enjoying it together. The animation is really cute.

Endless Alphabet
Multiple moms recommended this as their kids’ favorite app.

Sago Mini Apps
Multiple moms recommended these apps.

Toca Boca Apps
A bunch of moms recommended these apps. I looked at the details for a few of the apps and most were made for ages 6-8, though moms introduce them at much younger ages.

I listed only a few above, but type “Toca Boca” into this search box and more will pop up:

Free games for kids age 2-8.

One mom mentioned that after you download the app, you can download games by character.

Monkey Preschool Lunchbox

AlphaTots won many awards and “is the gold standard of ABC flash card apps” according to USA Today.

Starfall ABCs

The Three Little Pigs – Interactive bedtime story book
I couldn’t easily find an age recommendation on the app store description, but would assume that this app is good for ages 1.5-3.

My Little Town: Toddler’s Seek & Find Activity Book
“Particularly suitable for children aged 18 months to 4 years.”

Talking Carl
This app is designed for all ages. It seems kind of silly, but entertaining (and perhaps teaches cause and effect).

Tunes Teaching Toddlers
Designed for ages 0-5. Multiple moms have recommended this to me. This app does offer in-app purchases.

Tiny Hands Apps
For ages 1 and up (see each app for recommended ages). These apps seem to be free but include in app purchases.

For preschoolers and kindergarteners. One mom says that her kids go crazy for this. It wouldn’t be my top choice from this list.

Baby-Young Toddler Apps
Note that a bunch of the apps recommended above are recommended from age one, so please also read the descriptions for the apps listed above. I wouldn’t purchase the ones listed below past age two as your child may get bored of them quickly.

Peekaboo Barn
This is one of the first apps that I purchased for my son. It is cute and simple. Perfect for a one year old. You can choose from the built-in narrators: child’s voice in young English; adult’s voice in American English or Spanish. World languages also included: Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Japanese, Swedish, Dutch, Italian, German, French, and UK English. You also have the option of recording your own voice.
