Who said learning wasn't supposed to be fun? Introduce children to geography with this inflatable globe. Fun to play with and a great way to learn about the world we live in! This globe has true to life colors that illustrate mountains, deserts and forests. Clearly marked cities, capitals and country boundaries.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 0 years of age.

My rating of 27 inch Inflatable Topographical Globe
Posted 12/28/2011 by Wayne W Haugen
I realize that there must be a seam somewhere on the globe, but it bisects the state of Illinois which is a starting point for our children. We use stickers to identify start/end points and the seam is a bit obtrusive.
Also, the patch for the eyelet to illustrate the pitch of the earth's orbiting plane is too small and distorts the globe shape.
Lastly, the north/south poles of the globe are a bit flat rather than spherical.

I use this toy as an educational tool for an inquisitive 5 y.o. boy. He plays with it being Atlas, in the pool, and asks questions as it is a world map. It has a decent amount of topography, and cities he can identify. It will also be osed as a decoration hanging from his ceiling. Would suggest the eyelet for hanging be located to correspond w/ earth actual axis rather than mid Pacific.
Cool Way to Teach Geography

This is a really cool globe for younger children. Far more interactive than your standard globe. My son is able to bring it out whenever we hear about someplace on the news. It really is helping to teach him geography. Plus sometimes it is fun just to throw and bounce the "world". My only complaint is that it does not list the Southern Ocean and that some of the seams are not perfectly aligned, causing some of the countries' borders to not match up correctly. If these items were corrected, I would definately give it the highest rating.
