Play & Learn
Why not combine playing & learning? Check out these wonderful world maps for the little people to explore the big wide world. We personally have the felt map at home, which comes with a ton of felt animals, landmarks and vehicles for kids to place on the right countries & continents. They are beautifully embroidered and have lots of colors, which each kid loves.
But I also really like this magnetic one from Janod [ France ]. Its basically a huge magnetized atlas wall decal that comes with over 100 magnetic characters and iconic buildings. They are beautifully illustrated.
The other fun way to get the world into your home is a puzzle by Londji [ Spain ], which mixes vintage and modern styles in a very unique way. And it comes with a surprise: the globe part of the puzzle can be separated from the rest and is reversible! If we are in Rio de Janeiro we can assemble it from one side, and when in Barcelona from the other! Cute illustrated video to check out!
Encourage kids to understand the world and learn about animals, you can shop them online – Felt map, magnetic map & puzzle. FAO Schwarz has a similar one to the felt map but a bit smaller and cheaper.
Just love the versatility of each of those maps: decorative for any bedroom (well, if you have some wall space to spare), at the same time it is also an educational toy for learning & exploring the world and basically an arena to create kids own imaginative play...one large board game with no rules.
