Excellent teaching aid,

This review is from: Giant Earth Ball 40inch (1m) NASA Photo Real Globe inc. Free Global Handbook (Toy)
I bought one of the 40" globes as a tool to use when giving talks and presentations to audiences of all ages about a range of climate and ocean science issues. It's large enough for the whole audience to see clearly, not too heavy so you can ask an audience member to hold it up and rotate it etc as required. Why not 5 stars? It's very expensive for what it is - a plastic inflatable ball - the luminous dots for cities are essentially a waste of time unless you're in a pitch dark room with UV lights, and if you have to carry it around deflated to fit in car or bag it takes a long time to inflate. Hope mine lasts a few years, it's fun and engage audiences well.
