Shhh! They're playing
Quiet toys are priceless when you're traveling with small children, and Manhattan Toy's Feltopia activity set is one of the best we've tried. Think of it as an old-school felt board updated for today's on-the-go tot. The set includes 28 colorful felt pieces - in ocean, fairy garden, royalty, and family room themes - that "stick" to the five felt panels inside the 15-inch-square handled case. The case has four pockets on the back to hold the floppy pieces, and the whole thing folds shut like a slim portfolio. It costs about $30 at Belmont Toys (71 Leonard St., Belmont, 617-484-1101) and online at www.geniusbabies.com.
