Despite the rather mediocre and negative reviews bought this jigsaw and have found it my best buy in absolutely ages. Absolutely brilliant. The globe with the metal display is better than the tray one though the tray is included with the metal one for you to construct it on. Tray a bit shallow to permanently display so glad I bought this one. I bought it predominently to learn where everywhere is in the world and it has answered this requirement and more. Because it takes you a while to find the correct piece it imprints the location and which country. Because I dont use it as a jigsaw but as a learning device I have cheated using the fantastically useful numbers on the back and have put the "sea" areas together using the numbers. Also I have grouped all the pieces into their "100's" so dont waste endless time hunting. Just long enough to let the info sink in but not frustrating enough to forget. So you could just ignore the numbers and use it as a proper jigsaw or cheat a bit and learn countries and whereabouts. As for quality of pieces and design cant fault it. The pieces fit together well and whilst the writing a bit small (definitely need my glasses and good light) they are legible enough. A robust object and can visualise this being built and taken apart and built again many times - until I know where all my countries are anyway! Im 47 and a useful learning tool for me and I suspect for all except very small children. More a tool than a toy but still great fun nevertheless. I think everyone should have one!

This is generally a good puzzle and the fact that all the parts are numbered helps when working on areas of blue sea. My only complaints are that there are NO written instructions included at all (apart from a visual guide for the stand), and although most jigsaw puzzles do not need instructions, in this instance some guidance would have been helpful on issues such as how to insert the final north-pole piece (which in my case was extremely tight) without damaging the existing puzzle-build. (never did solve this)

And..I thought the stand was very poorly designed and (in my instance) was not correctly sized..being too large to hold
the finished globe.. An attempt to bend the wires to correct this resulted in the stand breaking :o(

So ..a fun but flawed product.

Brilliant 3D puzzle. I don't have any kids and bought this for myself as I wanted to familiarise myself with countries and their locations on Earth. The pieces are made from plastic and once you piece them together, it remains in place rather sturdily. There are numbers on the back of the pieces which makes it super helpful and quicker to build. I think it would be quite a challenge to try to build it without looking at the numbers - but could see it as a great way to occupy kids!

The only negative thing I have to say about this product is the wire frame holding the globe. It is a bit flimsy so sometimes when you pick it up, the ball falls out rather easily. Not good if like me you have cats in the house that have a tendency of knocking things over! Oh also, saved myself £10 buying it on Amazon :)

Bought for 2 grandchildren, one 9 years old and one 10. They both needed a bit of help to get started then they built on their own. Kept them happy for hours. Good value.

This item was bought as a Christmas present for my 11 year old Grand Daughter. I delivered to her home and we started straight away. It was quite challenging and I doubt that she would have managed it on her own. We had some fun assembling it but a degree of patience was required. The result was worthwhile and I now know where Namibia is !!

This puzzle was very difficult to complete but it was a great help that all the pieces were numbered on the back! I learnt a great deal about the world whilst completing it. It is very strong and is now standing in our sitting room.

I saw the Puzzleball advertised on tv just before Xmas, and thought it would make a fun extra present for my jigsaw loving wife and 2 teenage girls. Although the cost may seem a little excessive in comparison with jigsaws, the quality of the pieces is outstanding, and I feel it is good value. The puzzle didn't take very long to complete, and the numbers on the back of the pieces made it fairly straightforward, but my youngest daughter immediately broke it up as she wanted to do it all over again! Highly recommended.

An item bought for an intelligent grandson as a present for Christmas 2015, but we gave it to him earlier while we were 'child sitting'. It was a great success, as he is a lad, who needs to be tested mentally. It took up the whole of the evening, and he was delighted to complete it before we went home, a couple of hours later. We are now looking for a similar item for our next visit.
