I really should say it is GReAT to see the nearly 10 year old still playing with toys - he does spend too much time in from of a screen sometimes I think!
It has done well. We have an enormous collection of matchbox etc cars (what with having 3 boys!).
I did do a clear out a while back and took 4 shoe box fills into school as well. (kids there go gaga over them!)
The mat has lasted well. Any toys in your house still going strong many kids and years later?
