YES!! I was thinking it would be an easy thing to make it twice as large, and add other animals and farm-related thingies. Very cute.

I was thinking when I saw it that it looks easily translatable into knitting and so many other little animals and doo dads can be added to it, such as little doggies and kitties that resemble the ones in the family it's given to, etc.

When my nephews were young, I made something similar that was only roads winding through different areas, with a train track surrounding everything. It was pretty much slapped together, but they didn't care at all. They spent hours of quiet time (which was the big gift to their mother) with their little cars and trains and other odds and ends that they collected form everywhere, making up stories. It was fun watching them as different people donated different little things, not always in proportion to everything else, to add to their little ranch town. I remember one day they had it out on the grass in the sun, and one of the neighbor's cats pounced in the middle. That was the first chapter in the ongoing saga of "The Wild Cat that At the Town." :-) They were so funny with all their different stories...
