5.0 out of 5 stars Fun & Educational 22 May 2012
By Ursula K. Raphael TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My 6 yr old loves puzzles, loves maps & wanted this type of globe, so this was just perfect. What really impressed me was the incredible detail...in addition to the names of places, there are symbols, like animals, showing what the areas are known for. We could spend the rest of the year studying everything on this globe, and then some.

The best part is that the pieces are a hard plastic with enough thickness that you don't have to worry about accidentally cracking a piece when you're putting this together. We chose to use the numbers to put it together. It was a great rainy day activity - nice time away from the TV!

I homeschool (and I've worked as a tutor in the past), and I think this is a great teaching tool, especially if your children are visual learners.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 31 Jan 2013
We had another puzzleball jigsaw given to us that my son thoroughly enjoyed doing so we bought this one for his Christmas. He had great fun doing it however many of the pieces were difficult to put together and didn't stay together. Once complete it looked great however when we took the jigsaw to bits for the first time many of the pieces broke. The globe holder thingy also broke very easily and isn't the easiest thing to fix. I am now trying to glue it altogether so at least we can enjoy the globe!! All in all disappointing!!

While this puzzle engaged an eight year old while it was being assembled, turning it on the stand to identify places he was interested in proved a problem because the stand soon parted company with the globe holder.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good size. 5 May 2013

Not as sturdy as I was expecting it to be. Once it is made, just a simple tap when holding the globe can cause it fall to pieces. Can't really do much with it after it is made because pieces fall out when looking at certain part of the globe.

A great aid to show your child wherw countries are in the world, especially if you've travelled or taken them on holiday. Showing where animals come from is also very educational
