I bought one of these for my ten year old daughter, figuring that she will get as much use out of one as I did. It is beautifully colored and just as useful and comfy as I remembered, but there was one issue. Her globe didn't have nearly enough stuffing inside, and would not hold its shape. As a result, it looked caved in most of the time and was hard to see places on it. I ended up getting my mother to cut open the seam where the manufacturers put the stuffing into it (on my daughter's globe, that seam was located in the Southern Ocean down near Antarctica, and was easy to find as it looks a bit different from the rest of the seams). We put additional stuffing inside until it was the consistency of a firm pillow (as mine had been) and she hand sewed it back up. It was an easy fix to be sure, but it seems silly that they wouldn't stuff it correctly at the factory. Maybe I got one that was off, but if you get one, know that it can be remedied pretty easily. Otherwise, these soft globes are fantastic and she loves it.
All things considered, this is really fun toy and an excellent teaching tool!
-Up-to-date country labels
-Suitable for small children
-Countries don't line-up correctly at seams (minor)
-Could use more stuffing.
Overall, pleased with the purchase. Would buy it again, or get it as a gift. You'd be hard pressed to find something with as much detail that you feel comfortable letting small children examine and play with. Given the reasonable price (roughly twenty on Amazon), I highly recommend picking this up. Go ahead... Give your children the world!
