There is a key on the bottom left of the map identifying each icon, and along the top of the map there is a display of the planets in the solar system (no Pluto, how modern!).
Some of the other maps I've seen have the geographical icons displayed, but this one has the icons, colored countries so it's easier for children to see political boundaries, and geographical texturing so it's easy to see where there are mountains. The lamination is high quality and the map feels like it will last. This map has it all!
The paper is very thick, and nicely glossy. I put it on my son's wall with two-sided removable poster tape. It's held up really well. My kids look at it and reference it all the time. I highly recommend this map.
Having said that, I still give the map a four because of it's captivating drawings and clear country lines.
(I will probably have it laminated though.) :)
After reading item name (Map, laminated) and the description that also says it is laminated in plastic, I decided they must have changed the product,and I placed the order. It was sent to him in California, and I did not see it until sometime later. I was very surprised and disappointed. I give it 1 star as it is a map, but it is clearly not laminated. It is glossy paper with no plastic. This is just false advertising.
So I thought this world map would be the same quality and size. It's not. It's about half the size of the United States map.
Also, as indicated in earlier reviews, it's not laminated. and it's already slightly ripped.
Now, it's not a bad map. My kids seem to like it. (Hence a 3 star instead of 1 or 2). But it's just not worth $20. You can purchase a much bigger map for $13 from Rand McNally, also from Amazon.
I should have taken out a ruler and figure out exactly how big it is, before purchasing. So buyer beware.

The map was not as heavily laminated as I was expecting. It's more "coated" then laminated. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Rob, Marina and King Robbins
