What is it
Tiny Airport is an app which enables children to discover the airport with more than 90 interactive stories and sounds. Children click on the people and objects to bring them to life.
In the three scenes, there are around 90 hidden adventures and animations to uncover surprises:
— Scene 1: Arrival by taxi, check-in, and security check
— Scene 2: Waiting at the departure gate, boarding call, and departure
— Scene 3: Airborne with all the other passengers and flying the plane yourself
The app can be adapted for older children as you can add on a timed element to make it more challenging.

What our experts think
A delightful app which is packed full of fun things for children to do; it provides a real insight into life at an airport and makes children think about certain events (why can’t the knight go through the security scanner in his armour? ) We loved the humour behind the app; it certainly delighted the children who tested it!
The children kept finding new things even after they had played the app several times. For example, click on the overhead locker for the first row on the plane and watch the whole cabin get up and dance! The ‘What’s Up’ section in each scene is such a handy tool providing access to each of the animations in case a child worries they’ve missed something fun!
The app is a great story telling tool – through imaginative play children will naturally be encouraged to verbalise what they are doing and what is happening. If you are preparing to go on a flight this is also an ideal app to help children understand what to expect.
