Crumpled City Maps

I just discovered these maps via BozAround and I am hooked! What a great idea: a map that can be crumpled up, shoved into a bag and then magically unfolds again when you pull it out. I love maps but I really, really don’t like trying to fold and unfold a map in a middle of a crowd, making sure I fold it back into the right creases — especially as it will invariably have ripped right on the spot that I am trying to navigate towards. Compared to a normal map, these crumbled city maps are virtually indestructable,

They are also geared specifically towards children, with cute little illustrations marking famous landmarks. Such a great way to explore a new city with your children!
