The 'boardstiff' shop on Etsy sells a unique map for kids called 'I am Here,' which helps kids learn where they live, as well as the names of streets and other important spots nearby.

Each play mat is custom made, so that the road map is a reflection of what's really outside their home. The mat is made from vinyl, so that it is easy to clean up those inevitable spills and roll it up when it's not in use. There are three different I am Here map sizes available, and to create the vinyl map, the shop only requires that you provide an address, so that a drawing can be created for printing. For an extra level of customization, the Etsy shop also sells a variety of vinyl stickers, so that additional trees, houses and markers can be added and removed at will.
