LeapFrog Tag World Map
on 10 July 2011
My 5 year old daughter got this clever map for Christmas. She has a gran and grandad in Zimbabwe, an uncle in Dubai and lots of extended family in other countries so has a keen interest in where places are and what they are like. She will spend ages learning about the travel times and distances between places. She also likes to click on the children in the various countries and find out about what they like for breakfast and how they say hello. Her 4 year old brother likes it to, as it has lots of musical sounds and everything you click on makes a different noise. Although as the year has passed he has started showing more interest in the countries and continents game too. And I am relearning where all the countries are too - I am sometimes pleasantly surprised at what I remember from my own school days - and other times horrified that I can't for the life of me begin to imagine where a certain country might be located.
My only complaint is that because it is only made of cardboard you have to be quite careful when you are packing it away - saying that it has survived at the hands of both my 5 year old daughter and her 4 year old brother even on the few occasions when I have been busy and they've got it out and put it away without supervision.
I recommend this map for any child who is interested in the big world out there.
