One of the best toys we own came from a couple of garage sales in the US last summer. At one house I found these two play mats. One has a farm design and the other has a railroad. The next house we stopped at had little, durable plastic cars so I picked up two to go with the mats.Since the mats fold up like a handkerchief and the cars are small this set isreally easy to take even on a short trip. The clear plastic bag on thesofa originally held some baby gift but now it is home to the mat and car set. (Never throw away the good plastic pacaking that baby things sometimes come in!)
To keep the novelty of this little set it stays in the closet and only comes out when we are at a hotel, waiting in an airport,etc.
