Use The 3 Little Pigs as a visual aid while telling the story to develop vocabulary & keep kids engaged. As they grow, the set can be used for pretend play, matching, counting, memorization, sequencing and even comprehension, empathy and problem solving.
With 19 pieces, our Funny Faces felt story set encourages kids to let loose and be silly by coming up with hundreds of funny faces using a variety of pieces. The set allows for as many new faces, new roles and new storylines as your child can imagine.

The Power of Play

"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood." - Fred Rogers

At While They Slept we believe in the power and the value of play for all children. We recognize that it is within play that children develop a greater understanding of themselves and the world around them. We believe that play offers a safe space to explore new roles, new situations, and new relationships. Play is also where children learn and practice new concepts. Whether it is color recognition, counting or simple math equations, play can provide an introduction and reinforcement of both basic and complex concepts.

While They Slept also believes in providing high-quality, unique toys to children for play. Our felt boards and story sets are made 100% by hand recognizing that they soon will be held by the littlest of hands.

For us there is no greater honor than being part of your child's play and childhood memories. Felt play was a huge part of my childhood and it was something I wanted to give to my own children....I would love to share it with yours as well.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Please see individual listings for size specifications as each listing varies.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All travel felt boards are shipped wrapped in tissue paper. Felt story sets come packaged in a clear cellophane bag.

If you wish to add on gift wrapping, felt story sets will be packaged in a muslin storage bag. The option to add this to your order is given at the time you chose your felt story set.

Wholesale availability

Please email us at whiletheysleptfeltplay@gmail.com for wholesale inquiries.


Please note that Priority shipping is not available on our wall-mounted boards. All of our wall-mounted boards are shipped through FedEx as, currently, they offer the most cost-effective shipping option for packages of this size. All of our other items are sent via USPS. If you purchase a wall-mounted board anything else you purchased will be shipped via FedEx also as we combine shipping. If purchasing something in addition to the wall mounted board, Etsy will give you the option of upgrading to Priority shipping (as this is available for all other items) even though it is not available for the wall-mounted boards. Overage charges incurred through inadvertently purchasing upgraded shipping will be reimbursed.
