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!!

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.

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.

My daughter LOVED this! The fact that the pieces are numbered on the back enables quick completion (once sorted in numerical order), and perhaps this would be the only slight - it didn't take very long for a 5 year old. My daughter absolutely loved making this - the first time - and loves it as a globe now BUT for me as the "money-giver" of this item, I can't help but feel that it might become a novelty item (unless being used to search for geographical places).

Fantastic puzzle which was good fun to put together with my six year old, as all the pieces are numbered to help you construct the globe. Slight fault in the design, my son managed to break the stand within a few weeks, but on the plus side Ravensburger replaced the parts for no charge very quickly.

Bought for my 9 year old daughter who loved it.Very easy to complete. Good, sturdy pieces with the backs numbered to show which order to complete, although you could do it by looking at the front of the puzzle. The size of the puzzle means that the actual detail about the countries is limited, but gives a good sense of the position and size of countries/continents. Other reviewers said that the stand was flimsy, but had no problems fitting the completyed globe onto the stand. Well worth it.

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
