Product Description

Color: Blue

Give kids a fun chance to discover three-dimensional construction while also learning about global geography with the XXL Children's Globe from Ravensburger. This puzzle challenge features bendable puzzle pieces designed with Easy Click technology, ensuring the pieces fit together precisely with no glue required. Once completed, the globe is sturdy enough that it can be displayed with the included rotation stand.

Kids Build Their Own Globe

The XXL Children's Globe lets children create their very own globe piece by piece. Ideal for curious kids, this educational puzzle is suitable for ages 7 to 12 and offers a hands-on way for kids and pre-teens to learn about geography. Once constructed, the 3D puzzle stands upright on its own with the included base stand and has an easy-clean, peel-resistant surface so children can proudly display the globe in a bedroom or playroom and keep it handy for planning future voyages.

Illustrated Globe Shows World Landmarks

Kids will love building the globe and discovering the landmarks and unique cultural features of the different countries and continents as they build. From the Eiffel Tower in Paris to elephants in sub-Saharan Africa, illustrated depictions give kids a glimpse into the buildings, animals, and cultural traits that make each place unique.

Pieces Fit Flawlessly with Easy Click Technology for Sturdy 3D Puzzle

If your child is ready to take puzzling to the next level, the Ravensburger 3D puzzle collection is the way to go. This collection includes everything from the educational to the decorative, with 3D puzzle buildings depicting famous world landmarks to 3D puzzle balls displaying scenes of dolphins, dinosaurs, and princesses and even globes with educational booklets included. Puzzle enthusiasts will love the fun challenge of taking a puzzle off the flat surface and into the third dimension. These puzzle pieces are designed specifically for 3D construction. The bendable, uniquely curved, hinged, and flat pieces require no glue to assemble and are made of flexible plastic so they don't crease with use. Made with Ravensburger's Easy Click technology and high-quality plastic, the pieces interlock with precision for a flawless fit and hold up against peeling and aging.

With only 180 pieces, this Ravensburger Globe Puzzleball is plenty challenging for an experienced adult puzzler, if it's assembled from the outside. However, the easy way to assemble it, is to find the numbers on the white backs of the pieces, and then put the pieces together in sequence, starting at one of the poles. The plastic pieces lock snugly together, so it's easy to construct the globe, which sits on an included stand during construction or for display.

Because I wanted a bit of a geography refresher course, I chose to put the globe together without a picture (there is none in the box, but any world map will do). I started with the continents, which were easy to locate, because of the green and brown colors. Naturally, the hardest part was assembling the blue ocean pieces--especially because I couldn't remember where the islands of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans belonged! Is Pitcairn Island in the South Pacific, or the Indian Ocean? Assembling the ocean pieces is made easier by colorful little drawings of native birds, fishes, and animals that are sprinkled across the seas, close to the appropriate continents.

The pieces are NOT all uniquely shaped, although each piece is unique as to shape and color combined. I made some mistakes, so had to take some of the puzzle apart to retrieve pieces that fit except for color. You can avoid this by checking the numbers on the backs whenever a couple of pieces don't look quite right, or don't quite want to fit together. As an aid to assembly, I used "magic tape" to hold not-yet-supported pieces together. This puzzle took me about 4.5 hours to assemble "the hard way", and it was a lot of fun.

Color Name: Blue Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Having put together two other Ravensburger Puzzle Balls (Times Square 270 Piece Puzzle Ball and Underwater World 40 Piece Puzzle Ball) with my 4.5 year old son, I thought this 180 piece Puzzle Ball would be a quick and easy build. Unfortunately, it was not so.

My son and I started assembling the puzzle ball using the same method we used to assemble two previous puzzle balls - I was sorting pieces and he was putting the puzzle together. However, the puzzle kept falling apart and we had to switch. My son sorted and laid out all pieces in front of me well ahead of me getting to them. The area that includes pieces 69 through 75 was especially frutrating as those pieces just would not stay together.

While some pieces won't stay together, others were difficult to attach. During the build, the ball would fall apart at a lightest application of force when attaching stubborn pieces. I spent well in excess of 15 minutes attaching the last piece. As I was applying the pressure to attach the last piece, surrounding or other random pieces kept falling out. The frustration level was so high that I was ready to smack the ball against the floor.

The included assembly stand helped to hold the puzzle for the assembly of the last few rows, but it was absolutely useless in the beginning because pieces kept falling off and I had to hold the ball in the palm of my hand to keep it from falling apart. A child with small hands would not have been able to hold this puzzle like I did. An hour later I was finally done, and, by that time, my son had lost all interest long before.

The final product looks like a small globe. It is colorful and spins easily. Unfortunately the fun was drained from this toy by unnecessarily difficult assembly.

First, as several other reviewers have noted, this isn't really a "puzzle" in a genuine sense, although it has the look and feel of a jigsaw puzzle turned 3-D. However, it's really more of a sequencing exercise. Each piece is labeled with a number on the back (1 through 180, although the first several and last several are already permanently joined to create the North and South Pole areas). One simply has to assemble the pieces in chronological order, following the arrows to place each subsequent piece, which builds the puzzle up from the South Pole to the North Pole in rows. Theoretically I suppose it would be possible to assemble the puzzle as a standard puzzle (minus edge pieces, of course), but fitting the pieces together could be quite challenging. In fact, that was quite challenging even when doing it in the prescribed order.

My five-year-old daughter and I tackled this "puzzle" this weekend. Because she is well below the minimum age for this product, I anticipated that she would struggle with it. But I didn't anticipate how much even I would struggle with it. The first few rows seemed to go smoothly enough. They tested her patience, but she was able to do it. But as we got closer to the middle bulge, the pieces didn't want to stay in place. I thought it was just a matter of my daughter's lack of manual dexterity and patience, but then I too had trouble with pieces falling out until they could be shored up by later pieces. At times I ran out of fingers to temporarily brace all the pieces that were falling out.

In a bit of a switch, as we got past the center bulge and started building back toward the North Pole, the pieces got surprisingly hard to fit together. It took a bit of muscle to snap each piece into place - more muscle than my daughter was capable of.
