I bought this for my son (7 years), but it was so tiny when it arrived that I returned it. It is an attractive little globe, but the size of it makes it extremely difficult to read. I eventually bought a perfect globe for his age group from the Early Learning Centre, which was more expensive but exactly right for his age.

Considering the price I was pleasantly surprised by this nice little globe. It is of a decent quality, more adult than toy. Because of its size (approx 100mm diameter) the main drawback is the lack of room for placenames, especially in small overcrowded areas like Europe. If you want to know where things are in Europe this is not for you. However if you were reading about exploration voyages of years gone by or even of the Royal navy hunting down enemy ships across the world's oceans this globe would be handy to give you a better perspective than any flat map.
Would sit well on any childs bedside table or computer workstation.

If you want a toy, then it's good, if you want it for educational or ornamental reasons, then think again.

This was bought for me as a desk ornament, as I like globes, maps etc. There's nothing better then looking at where and how big you are in relation to other places. I have a much more sophisticated globe at home, with mountain ranges in relief, etc.
I can't believe the negative reviews regarding this little gem. There is a surprising amount of detail on it. It cleverly rotates around the equator, and "tumbles" as well - which is a bit unusual for a globe, but interesting nontheless. I mean - who's to say we're up and Australia's "down under" ?
I wish you could do something useful like unscrew the hemispheres and put something inside.

For this price you will not be disappointed.

this globe is a lovely globe.design and quality of construction are both of a very high standard.one must accept that it is small but it sits very prettily on a desk/worktable.it is highly detailed and as much for adults as for children.i am a teacher myself though of english not geography.everyone should have one of these golobes and even at twice the price.it is both educational and aesthetic.

I love geography and exploration so this was a great buy for my birthday! however, if you're expecting a reasonable sized globe, its a little on the small side

I love this and think it's really cute on my desk. my Geography is really messed up so when anyone mentions a country or a holiday destination, I am quick to pick up my globe and quickly locate the spot. It's a cool size to have on your desk space.

Perfect for what I wanted, a small attractive globe to sit on a bookshelf that I can look at when I want to see where somewhere is in the world. There's always atlases and the web for more detailed referencing.
