I have no doubt that this will provide hours of entertainment and education.

It is a little above their heads, but creates a great challenge for those who are looking to learn more about the earth and the world we live in.
G. Abraham
The talking part of the globe isn't very educational at all... Quality could be better.

I have this globe in my first grade classroom. It is a little above their heads, but creates a great challenge for those who are looking to learn more about the earth and the world we live in. I purchased one off of amazon because one of my students asked for it for Christmas in 2009. His parents asked me to help them find one and I could get free two day shipping so I purchased it for them. It was shipped on time and arrived in great condition.

My students use mine on a daily basis and have for about 4 years now. It still works very well. I do have headphones to go with mine and the power cord. I would recommend getting the power cord if you plan on using it a lot! The family I purchased it for just bought batteries for now. They have been very happy with it and are very impressed with what their child learned from it in my classroom. He has been very excited since he received it and plays with it daily at home. His older brother even likes it and plays with it (he's in 4th grade).

This globe offers many activities and exploring modes for the kids so they don't get bored easily with this toy. It helps the students locate different places on the globe and learn about those far away places.

My daughter recieved this globe for her 6th birthday. She was so excited, but was very discouraged when she discovered she could not really learn about the continents etc. The globe requires you to read the names of the states, oceans etc. She is a new reader and cannot read the small print on the globe. She was really hoping to point to a place and the globe would teach her about it. This globe asks you questions about a location and you need to find it. She walked away after 15 minutes and has not returned in 10 days. It is being returned.

Santa was all set to deliver the GeoSafari Globe Jr we had asked him to bring our daughter. He took it out of the box and it looked great, had lots of light, but no sound. No matter how many times he changed the batteries, it didn't talk. Needless to say, he had to take it back to the North Pole and it did not come under our tree. About a week later, though, he left a note saying that the elves "fixed it" and put a brand new Oregon Scientific globe under the tree. The OS globe talks, has lots more categories and challenges, adjusts to ALL age ranges (from 15 to adult), and best of all can be updated (online) ... all for the same price! That Santa, he is so smart.

The GeoSafari Talking Globe Jr. is an exceptional learning too. It is an for 8 years and above children. The globe teaches the children about different countries, culture, songs plus much more. It is the best item I every bought for my Grandchildren.

Our five year old grandson and his mother are having a great time with this wonderful educational talking globe. It has kept his attention and he has so many questions. Recommended.

This is just a globe now. The kids can no longer associate with its "Press A for Yes and B for False" or "Press A for North Dakota and B for California" mode. The current generation of kids who are growing up on iPads and tablets expect things to be "hands on" and this globe is not tactile. There is nothing that happens on the globe itself - and that is ridiculous considering the price they are trying to charge. So, for about a hundred bucks, you are selling a globe and a tape?

I would love to buy the same thing again, if the designers at least make the globe light up in the right spots. Rather than saying "Europe is the continent with orange borders", light it up silly.

Good information for learning but awkward to use since it is not interactive using a probe to touch areas on the Globe to get relevant information.

This nice-looking globe, once received, turned out to be of very poor overall quality, especially when considering the price. The map is made of paper/cardboard and has been applied with numerous wrinkles. While the top of the globe is light, the stand is not heavy or large enough to support the top when spun without holding on to the entire piece. Lastly, the voice emitting from the computerized base is very mechanical and the narrator is difficult to understand. I was very disappointed with this product.
