Toy: Board Stiff Custom Play Mat with Stickers

Get It For: Frankly, we think this is so cool that it will delight most little people, but particularly those who are into cars or building imaginary towns. Or not so imaginary since the play mats are created from maps of your neighborhood.

Why We Like It: We’ve featured the Board Stiff Custom Neighborhood Play Mats before, so they may look familiar. We’re bringing them back because of a new inexpensive accessory: stickers! In case you’re not familiar, the Neighborhood Play Mat is a hand drawn map based on an address you provide then printed on high-quality vinyl. The brand new stickers are only $1.75 and allow your child to add some creative flair to the map of his neighborhood. There’s a set of sticker for urban neighborhoods and rural neighborhoods or go a different route and add some trees, points of interest and whimsy.

Shop! The Custom Map Play Mats are available in 3 sizes: Small ($28.50), Medium ($53.50) and Large ($73.50). The new Stickers are $1.75.

    I think this will be great for the kids to learn routes and places at a young age. They can be creative too by placing the houses and vehicles wherever they want which can improve their cognitive abilities.
