I shop the dollar store and hide the toys until the plane ride, especially for toddlers till 5 year olds. The newest helps. Also, I hide a favorite one so it is almost 'new'. I also have orange tic tac or smarties that they can suck on to help their ears for take off and landing. Things that work are picture books, white boards with pens, animals, (no noise makers). For 3-8 year olds they enjoy having their own bag of treats.
