This-Two Year Old is a Better Geographer than You (was in the All Points Blog, now Directions Magazine) caught my attention, just too cute to pass up. The 2007 YouTube video was originally a response to the Miss Teen USA South Carolina answers a question. (See Sept 2007 post Sniggering). Apparently Lilly was later on Oprah, and Jay Leno. The video has been viewed over 4 million times. Maybe it would be nice if more parents played map games like this with their kids.
Or you could buy these plates and teach them that there are just eight countries in Europe. (The makers might have at least made a toothpick dish out the Netherlands.)
Update: 27/6/2018: Map plates don’t seem to be available any more, probably for good reason.
