World Map Classic

National Geographic ''Light Your Way'' Customizable World Map (Classic)
National Geographic ''Light Your Way'' Customizable World Map (Classic)
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Maps/Wall Maps/Plaque-mounted Maps

Our Genographic Project traces the origins and migrations of the human race, and now this ingenious light-up map lets you trace your own migrations, aspirations, family history, and more. Behind this foam-mounted map are two fluorescent lights. When a translucent peg is inserted into the map, the result is an illuminated point of light—similar to the light-up pegboard toys many of us grew up with.

  • A couple could identify where their families live or have emigrated from—one color for him, one color for her.
  • A family could plot their dream vacations, and swap out the color of the pin for every trip that becomes a reality.
  • A world traveler could pinpoint all the far-flung places he’s been.
  • A student could mark everywhere her friends have moved after graduation.
  • A business owner could mark all of her company’s locations.

Each framed map includes a puncher tool and 60 pegs (ten each of six colors). The ways in which you can envision your world are endless with this infinitely customizable map. The map features fact boxes listing things like the world’s largest and most populated countries and the world’s largest citites.
