"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.
