When I first saw the Crumpled City series, I had a feeling that Palomar would sooner or later publish the maps for the younger ones.

On this map, there are mostly the well-known landmarks, such as museums, galleries, squares, parks etc. But some commercial shops are also illustrated on it, for example, Tokyo Fixed (Bike shop), the Apply store, Hard Rock the cafe, Harrods, Hamleys (Toy shop), Rainforest Cafe, London IMAX.

This map is perfectly designed with plenty of funny illustrations and it shows the British culture too. But it is definitely not a map for direction as the paths are not in scale (well, it's a toy map for children, what do we expect?).
