Here’s a great airport amenity: “play coordinators” for kids.

At London’s Heathrow Airport there are “Stay & Play” areas with slides, soft climbing structures and separate areas for babies and kids up to age 9.

Parents need to stick around, but there are also helpful “play coordinators” on duty who host craft activities and storytelling sessions and just … play.
