I bought mine at WM during back to school time. Later they marked them down to $5.00 for the set. Very nice maps. My kids use them all the time.
Someone here posted this link not long ago. You can print maps up to 7 feet wide. Haven't tried it yet but I guess you print out individual sections and then tape them up all together. They are not labeled or colorful, but I could see them being quite useful and fun, letting the kids label and color in sections, maybe add stickers, etc.
I bought a three pack that contained a large world map, U.S. map, and a large poster of flags of the world, at a home school store. But, I think it's a basic set they sell at teacher stores, etc. They are not laminated, but inexpensive and very cool.
I think the World map is about 4 or 5 feet across.
