handmade wooden U.S. map boards are designed with multiple uses in mind - as a tabletop reference board, piece of art, learning resource, or for plotting your next adventure! Inspired by Montessori-style natural materials, this sturdy engraved map allows kids to trace their fingers in the grooves of state boundaries and feel each border while absorbing the beauty of our country's 50 states and names in a crisp, clear, easy-to-read sans serif font. This listing is for the map board alone; purchase the coordinating stand separately for an easy way to display your map of the United States at all times. Crafted by hand in their Ohio studio from locally sourced wood. Sealed with food-grade mineral oil and safe for babies & children to enjoy. Our line of modern learning resources are a lovely addition to a nursery, playroom, or homeschool environment and are sure to be treasured for years to come. Each item is unique and made-to-order; wood tone & grain will vary from piece to piece.
