“My 3-year-old daughter and I recently flew together from Boston to San Francisco. Round-trip travel time: 10.5 hours. Squirm potential: high. I did not go into this unprepared, and spent some time in the weeks leading up to the trip assembling books, DVDs (I borrowed a portable player from a friend), snacks, and assorted other entertainments and distractions.

On the evening before we were to leave, however, I was in a card shop in downtown Boston when I caught sight of colorful packs of stickers, just the right size and shape for small hands and perfectly compact for airplane travel. Made by Peaceable Kingdom Press - which also makes puzzles and toys - the Sticker Activity Totes come in a variety of themes and offer a large number of stickers and a decorated scene board (a peace of shiny, stiff cardboard) on which to place them. The really cool thing is that the stickers aren't really stickers; they're plastic that adheres without adhesive, so the stickers can be used over and over and don't wind up stuck to clothing, hair, and airline pillows.

For my daughter, I chose the Eric Carle set and the Enchanted Unicorns set, but other options include bugs, funny faces, Curious George, dinosaurs, and Dr. Seuss. The totes would be great for car rides as well as for rainy days in the house, and have so far held up well to the rigors of toddler handing. Next time your little one goes mobile, check out the Sticker Activity Totes as a fun and compact source of entertainment.”
