Nothings says play on a wintry day (which we're getting a few more of here in the Northeast), like a beautiful felt play mat. These are the kinds of toys that really nurture a child's imagination. We could've played with these for hours as a kid.
We found them on Etsy at Playday Toys where they have lots of other cool things as well. These are great for travel, plus they'd be a beautiful decoration hanging on the wall when not in use.
