The Flying Tent "For quiet time when plane-bound, tuck one end of an airline blanket into the fold-up tray and the other under the headrest (behind the child). Voila: a "tent" that lets your toddler nap better on the plane. We put this together one night while stuck on a runway for almost six hours, and it saved the day. My son rarely naps anymore but still asks for an airplane tent, if only for playtime." —Roy Youngblood, Chicago, Ill. Budget Travel Friday, Jun 27, 2008, 9:00 AM Budget Travel LLC, 2016
