I had the chance over the weekend of pulling out an old collection of Animaniac videos. That’s right, VIDEO’S. I still have a combo DVD/Video player for all the VHS tapes I haven’t transferred over to the DVD format. The Animaniacs were a staple around the house when my first child was born and she swears she still remembers some of the episodes. In fact she credits the “Countries of the World” song with instilling in her a love of geography.
I never thought about learning the countries of the world in that manner, I always had a globe around the house and an Encyclopedia Britanica set in my Grandpa’s library. Nowadays the hardcopy encyclopedia has gone the way of the Dodo and the Great Auk. I’ afraid that the traditional Globe of the world is on the way out the door as well. However, here at MatsMatsMats.com, you can still get your hands on a GIANT Puzzle world map mat. (Try saying that out loud 5 times fast!)
It has continent names, country names, flags, time zone demarcation map coordinates and a host of other hands on information. Besides that, it is a 4’x6.5’ x5/8” foam mat suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
Imagine singing along with Yakko Warner and pointing to the locations of the countries as fast as you can to see how many you recognize! (go ahead and let your child play too.)
