This is a well made product. It reminds you of a beach ball but when it arrives you find it is much thicker and more durable than most beach balls. Also, if you are the least bit worried about the print being unclear and hard to read because it's stamped on an inflatable globe, don't be. It's clear as a bell and a wonderful learning tool for little ones. My 4 year old was asking me questions that would be SO much easier to answer if I had a globe yet, I didn't want to sink a ton of money into a fancy globe. Also, he's not old enough to have interest in it EVERY day so this was the PERFECT solution.

This globe is a "blow up" globe that can be reused again and again. It easily folds up and can be carried in a pocket. It is made of tough beach ball material.

I bought it to take to a farming village in the jungle in northeast Luzon in the Philippines, and there was no way I had room for a regular globe in my luggage. This blow up globe was perfect for the long, rough trip. I used it to show the people I was visiting where I live, and where their village is, because they had never seen a map before. The globe was useful for showing where the typhoons that hit their village come from, how close the Philippines is to other countries, and whatnot.

I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the individual US states are not shown on the map of the US, so I had to draw in California with a ball point pen. Otherwise, this globe is a real handy, portable teaching tool. It also comes with a repare kit in case you pop it.

We bought this blow up globe for our infant son, so we aren't too tremendously concerned about the fact that the names of countries are inaccurately printed on this globe!!! All the country names are printed approximately 1/2" above the territory. If you plan on using this globe as anything other than a earth-decorated beach ball (such as in a classroom setting or to teach your kids geography?!) this is not the globe for you. By the time our infant understands how to use a globe, we will have moved onto a bigger, better globe.

I might have got the wrong item, but no, it is the Learning Resources LER 2432.
All the City names are perfect, 5 Stars. But all country names are wrong, 0 Stars. How can I use it for teaching? It looks even very different to the picture on amazon and on learning resources. The colours are different the shape is absoloutely different and the quality is not good at all, it is more an old tomato than a globe.

If you only need an inflatable ball, then this would be fine. If you intend to use it to teach geography, then look elsewhere for a teaching tool. The seams on the globe are poorly aligned, causing some locations on the globe to get cut off, as well as giving the globe an awkward shape. Also, the lines of latitude do not line up well where the seams of the ball connect. I don't recommend this Learning Resources globe as a "learning resource." --Addendum to previous review: Learning Resources did contact me and sent me another inflatable globe to replace the first one. The replacement globe was better aligned at the seams than the first globe I received, but it still wasn't what I'd hoped it would be in terms of an educator's tool. I was fortunate enough to come across a real (non-inflatable) globe with a stand at a popular discount department store the other day for only a couple dollars more than I paid for this inflatable one. Our inflatable globe will be kept as a cute decoration hanging from the ceiling, but it won't be used for teaching geography.

The purpose of my purchase of this ball is to let my kid learn geography in a fun way. When I bought this, I was not expecting it to be too accurate. But after I received the product, I was shocked to see that the borders of various countries were (intentionally) misrepresented. The reference of the map is unknown and the borders are baised towards Chinese interests and their view of the world. I had to return this product as I don't want my kid to be prejudiced towards certain geographical regions.

The surface has a lot of overlapped regions along the line connecting two neighboring pieces. So don't expect to see a complete map or text captioning.

It also cannot hold the air for 10 minutes.

I am very disappointed that Amazon is selling products which are worst than dollar stores' stuff now.

Totally waste of money and time.

I am returning it.

This is a quality product. Good detail. Holds air well, ready to blow up and hang from attached loop. An excellent buy.
