Bonnie This was a good quality globe. It also looks very nice in our living room!

Henks--Parent, Elementary School Teacher I picked this globe out for my mother who wanted to give a globe to each family with grandchildren. All of the children were excited when they opened it. My five year old put ours together with our guidance. It's a perfect hight for him to look at, about eye level, and good height up through preteens. Adults bend over a little or can use it easily from a chair. The place names are VERY tiny and there tons of labels. The writing can obscure the boundaries of the smaller states/countries. We chose the globe for the mountains in relief (good for kids and adults alike), the blue water, and the showing of the 50 states and Canadian Territories (instead of showing only the border of the US). My five year old is very excited. He easily identified N. & S. America and Africa without prompting. He asked us to show him where Asia is(trickier boundaries). He spotted Madagascar in a flash. We look forward to being able to show him the states of his relatives, and where people travel--we already talk about these places often. This was on the only afordable globe with the features that we wanted that also came with the pedestal or tabletop option. This is great. We don't have much table space for a globe. Also, the globe can easily be moved about by my five year old to a "handy" place. The stand and lightweight quality of the globe could also be a liability with bouncy childeren, but I feel like that's up to us parents to generate appropriate behavior with the globe. In short, we got four globes...and we are going to get four more to give the rest of the families.

Larry B I purchased this globe for my wife for a Christmas gift as a piece of functiontional decor in our living room. I am not sure if this is what we want. When I got it, it was smaller than I had pictured it and it is very short for a floor model. Also, the base looked like it was solid and sturdy, but in reality it is cheap looking and not solid. The picture shows a nice, ornate piece that would make a good floor model. The actual model however falls short of that.

The bottom line is that I will either have to return it, or keep it and put it on a more quality stand myself. I will let my wife decide after Christmas.

goodlife before travel/vacation planning it's clearer and more fun because we see the whole route and all the cities in relation to each other and it's easier to talk to the travel agents



one request - can you do a globe twice it's size and a stand 1 1/2 as tall (floor) for under a $100? one can dream - arrrrrrrr.....

hellokitty I bought this globe as a gift to my parents for Christmas. Mom had said they always wondered where some of the places they heard of on the news were located, and so I knew this would be the perfect gift. It was. My dad and mom raved about how nice it was and dad put it together right then. We were all amazed at the quality and craftsmanship of this globe. This globe was a hit!!!thanks a million.

the shopper This product is used at the house.  It is a great way to locate places that have been annouced on the news and you have no idea where this place is located.  Its really easy to look at and can be taken apart and used as a table top globe which is really great!  The only thing that isnt so great is that it is really easy to dent if you dont take proper care,[...]

Jim Excellent globe for teaching purposes for young kids. Inexpensive, right height for young kids, colorful, US states separately identified. Perfect gift for a youngster who is eager to understand the Earth and foreign countries, especially after learning so many new countries following the recent World Cup.

busy Mom I assumed this was a "floor" model...i.e. that it would be twice as tall as it turned out to be. In reality, it stand just under 3" tall. I wouldn't exactly call this a "floor" model. I bought it as a gift for my son's school. I was expecting (from the photo)it to be about 4" tall.

The quality is good however.

Joyce I gave this globe as a gift to my 5 year old granddaughter. She has been very interested in geography for a while now. She loves the globe and is able to find the continents and countries that we talk about. The globe with the floor stand is just the perfect height for her.
