Illuminated World Globe
Product Description: When it comes to learning about Earth’s geography, no illustration is as effective as a realistic, round earth globe. Unlike a flat map, it can be spun, handled and analyzed in 3D detail, letting children experience the wonders of science through active involvement. A gift that will fascinate, educate and inspire.
EASY TO READ TEXT: Continents, countries, capitals, deserts, seas, and boundaries are clearly marked and easy to detect.
STABLE, TIP-RESISTANT STAND: Built with young kids in mind, this world globe rests on a sturdy weight-balanced base that holds the orb aloft for imaginative fingertip expeditions.
BRIGHT LED ILLUMINATION: By day it makes a wonderful learning tool. At night it lights up with a soft glow to enhance your child’s bedroom and nurture sweet dreams.
360° MOVEMENT & ROTATION: Kids can spin this globe on its axis to mimic Earth’s natural rotation and study global citizens and territories.
This illuminated world globe is meant for younger children who have an interest in learning about world geography. Recommend for ages 8+. I actually got this for my husband. He is obsessed with planets and the world in general and he has a fascination with globes.
This light up globe is very lightweight and made of plastic. This is meant for sitting on a table, stand or shelf, not that there is a cord restricting you, just that the product would probably not stand up to rough housing. Would best be used as a learning aid.
I personally am not the best when it comes to geography so I can not comment of the correctness of this world globe, but as a night light or for general world globe use, this is a great product!
