Shhh! They're Playing!
By Lylah M. Alphonse
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. [More]

Quiet toys that traveling tots will love
I'm always on the look-out for portable, easy-to-use, quiet toys to take with us when we travel, and this great set by Manhattan Toy has quickly become a favorite with my 4-year-old.
