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.)

Carpted Floor Mats Make Learning More Fun!

Kids area rugs make are an excellent play mat!There were few things that excited me as much, when I was a child, as cars and trains. Perhaps it was the details of train sets and matchbox cars, or the novelty of large machinery that I had no idea how it worked.  Moreover, how it could be scaled down for me to interact with rearrange and play with how I saw fit.  Kids area rugs would have made all the difference and I would have been learning too!

My main peeve was always that there was no universal play set carpeted floor mats of sorts, that would really engulf and put me in a zone. I was lucky enough to have a fairly large train set, however, I do remember the train set not being conducive to the epic car chases in my head (since it was all very scaled and as my dad described not a toy).

Heroic cops vs robbers or just a plain busy day of construction was pretty much always on tile or plain carpet. I know that if I had kids play mats to play on it would have been so much cooler.  That’s why one of the products I know I would’ve loved as a kid (especially as a Christmas gift) is our transportation and construction themed play carpet. The details are awesome! It is perfect when playing with toy cars, planes, trains, and even boats. Let your kids imagination run wild with a simple yet effective alternative to a full blown expensive play set.

Play carpet or carpeted floor mats are excellent for day care centers, schools or home use. The quality of the kids play rugs as well as the large selection of colors, sizes and themes to choose from make it easy to find the perfect interactive educational rugs that will no doubt make learning fun! So, look at any of our many kids play carpets and I’m sure you and your child will find a carpet that will enhance their enjoyment!
