We were recently sent a glow in the dark Mythical Monster Map from maps international. Maps International are leading online wall map retailers supplying an extensive range of products to the world. They not only have a glow in the dark map but also a large laminated wall map and a colour in map also.
The map itself shows forty five fascinating mythical creatures from around the world. The map shows a brief description of the monster along with the country of origin around the edge of the map. From the Makara’s in Thailand to Scandinavian Trolls to the Banshees of Ireland. This map takes you around the world with countries local folklore.
The Map themselves are beautiful. I wasn’t sure what to expect before we received the map. But they were printed on high quality paper and all the monsters were beautifully hand drawn.
I love Mythical creatures I always have. It’s not something I had really introduced to my children properly. However with more and more movies, books and television programmes surrounding Mythical creatures they had come across Mythical monsters on their own.
With the likes of Harry Potter, Lord of the rings, The Chronicles of Narnia and Pan’s Labyrinth Mythical creatures make there way into our children’s imagination.
Did you know?
A Banshee is a female spirit seen as an omen of death. It wails at someone in the community who is about to die.
We unrolled the map and set it on the table. The map was printed on thick paper. Each monster had a glow in the dark edge which gave it a slight texture. The glow in the dark edge did detract from the detail of the monster illustration slightly. However it did not lessen LM’s interest.
He was excited about learning about new monsters and asked what each monster was called, even the cat joined in.
He couldn’t wait to get it on his bedroom wall and wait for nightfall to see if it really did glow in the dark. It did. He was so excited. He spent the afternoon in his bedroom talking to the monsters and creating little stories with them.
We really enjoyed looking at this map and it gave us some time to sit down together and discuss about monsters and learn a little more.
LM is almost 5 however this map would make a great addition to any child/adults wall.
