Rated 5 out of 5 by TXmomwith4kids Great Value and Fun
I bought this for my four year old for Christmas and she loves it. She is having to compete with her 9 year old sister and 7 year old brother for time on it though because they also find it very entertaining. I reccommend this for all ages. It will benefit your preschooler teaching them fun songs from all over the country while teaching them all about our country and reinforce what lower elementary students are learning at school. I am so glad I bought this.
My only complaint is it was folded wrong a few times and it started to tear at the seam, so I repaired it with moving tape and then covered the other seams just to be safe. When I buy the world map I will do that before I give it to my kids.

This is an easy way to shop and I'll do it again. It's for my grandson.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MommyTesters Wonderful Map - Gives Little Ones a Head Start
We love this map! I had purchased a placemat and a puzzle with the map of the US on it to try to teach our year old the states and capitals. She had zero interest in them. This map was the perfect solution. She immediately took to it and spent about 30 min the first time pressing on all the states and hearing their names and finding out where all our relatives lived in relation to eachother. I was able to teach her the cardinal directions because it gave perspective and now she is identifying states on her own without the pen.
We haven't even flipped the map over or played the quiz games yet because she is pretty young but that just means we are going to get a lot of use out of this map. Its great that it will grow with her as she gets older. I'm really very happy with this purchase and would happily buy it for children of my friends.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mommycat2244 Helping 5 y.o. Son with Autism
My 5 y.o. son with autism has learned all 50 states, their capitols, the atlantic & pacific oceans, the gulf of mexico, the mississippi river, mexico, & canada-all in 2 months, thanks to this! He has only become slightly verbal within the last year, so I thought for his birthday this year (Jan. 30) I would buy him this after playing with it in the store. And this has turned into one of his (and our) favorite "toys" to play with. He's even wanting to help to teach his little brother where some of the states are! It's been truely amazing to watch them sit together and play with this. He has also learned about what products/technologies come out of which state/part of the country because of this toy! The only thing negative I can say is that the map isn't built to last-especially with a little boy who wants to drag, and carry this thing with him everywhere he goes-LOL!!! I'm having to buy a new one just two months later because where it folds, my son has worn out where those parts of the map are on.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sprinkles Excellent learning tool!
I bought this for my six year old daughter for Christmas. She played with it for over an hour and was actively engaged in all of the features and games! She has had a Tag system for about two years now. She has so many Tag books that I had to buy her a second Tag to hold the maps and other book that she got for Christmas.
She is an only child and does very well in school.
