Why it’s fun: The perfect app for a kid to play leading up to a summer vacation, Frequent Flyer builds anticipation of traveling while giving parents an opportunity to prepare and a context in which to share their own travel experiences.
Kids create an avatar for themselves, select their own luggage and can decorate their suitcase with stickers from their travels — a soccer ball from Rio, a pyramid sticker from Cairo. It’s a fun way to learn about geography while at the same time preparing a child for airport security routines (if only real-life security lines were this much fun!). Kids will get a kick out of watching the screen tilt back during “takeoff.” Bon voyage!
