BBC iPlayer Kids

iPlayer and an old iPad are a lifesaving combination for parents bundling small and medium-sized children on to a plane, but it may be worth switching to this more youngster-tailored version of the app.

The design is more suited to young sensibilities, both visually and in terms of ease of navigation, and of course, there's no danger of your toddler stumbling across something age-inappropriate. (Handily, the app also incorporates a 'safety lock' to keep young users in the app.)

YouTube Kids

Like iPlayer Kids, this is a simple and appealing concept: an app that means your kids can easily access YouTube's vast video library without you having to watch everything over their shoulder. The buttons are bigger, the video categories are simpler, parental and other controls are hidden behind a safety lock and a little message comes up from time to time instructing the viewer to go and play.
