Don't mean to be a kill-joy, but shouldn't the fun be linked to learning geography correctly? You'd think the Discovery corporation might have taken a moment to consult an atlas before locating the equator in the WRONG PLACE!
Quality: It is felt, but it is still quite durable. Unless your kids like to pull on thing with hulk like strength the map will not rip, and even then it would be on the seams. There are 8 grommets around the map to hang it up with. It comes with NO hardware to hang it up, but that is probably best. We used nails since we plan on leaving it up for a long time. If you wanted something less permanent you could use tacks, or those tacky removable hangers.
It comes with a few countries, rivers, animals, continents and oceans. There are a few of them we would have changed, but it is easy enough to get some felt, velcro, and permanent markers to make your own tags.
Education: There are a lot of different ways to use this map with education. You could have your children put up what is included, make your own, or have them fix what is out of place. We also got some velcro dart gun darts to throw at the map and say what it is we landed on. There are quite a few possibilities.
1. Some of the areas can get crowded if you put up all of the velcro pieces at one time. Solution: only put up animals, bodies of water, or places at any time to give it space.
2. There is no storage for all of the pieces once you have taken them out of the box. Solution: plastic baggie. small box. anything.
It is well worth the price, whether you are homeschooling or not. This is fun and interactive, something we can do WITH our daughters. Even we learned something while putting them up. (Had no idea where the Mezen River was). I definitely recommend this to teachers, homeschool parents, or any parents who want to have fun and learn something.
In the end, we left up in his room, but got a more detailed Rand McNally map, mounted on foam board, and use that for most of our conversations about places and environments and whatnot. You might consider skipping this step and going with something that has more detail if your child is beyond even the most basic curiosity of world geography.
Disappointing for an educational toy.

Really soft material! Christmas present my child is going to love it. Bigger that what I was expecting.
I can even use it in my classroom.
This is an excellent concept, but it's not quite the gem I was hoping it would be. Let's start with the equator: it wasn't where it was supposed to be. Read morePublished on November 10, 2013 by apple_blossom
