If you have kids who get bored with all the waiting around that has to be done in the airport then you will know the frustration of having to queue for customs, to queue for tickets and baggage and to queue for food when you get through. So what if there was interesting stuff to keep your little angels happy when they are waiting? You could be in luck.
