I love, love, love this Globe…. I cannot say enough good things about this Globe. The Globe is bright and colorful and easy for kids of all ages to use. It has just enough details to where kids would not get confused or overwhelmed by everything. Pieces are easy to take on and off and the Globe is a nice size especially for smaller kids. The only con I had is that the stickers on the continent start to lift up a little. You just have to rub them back down, no biggie. The nice thing is that the Globe is all assembles and ready to be played with right out of the box.
I was able to get this Globe before my husband had to leave to go to the UK on business. It was perfect to show my son that daddy had to take an airplane to get to Europe and from there he was going to Ireland. I feel it made it a little easier for him to adjust to the change in home environment, knowing where daddy was. Plus this is helping him lean where we live and that there are many different types of people living all over the world. He also loves that fact that he knows where Disney is in Florida and that we take a plane to get there. He keeps going back to it and tells me; this is where daddy is, pointing to Europe.
The stickers that are on the continents are colored to match the color or the continent. I did not realize this until my son was putting the puzzle pieces back on the Globe and he started to put the names correctly with the continent. I knew that there was no way he knew where each of these went perfectly until he said, "Mommy look they match", great idea Learning Resources.
My mom stopped by our house and saw the Globe out on our table. She liked it so much that she is already getting Christmas ideas for some relatives.
I'm so glad I was able to get this Globe…..

To be fair, my granddaughter won't be three for two more months. She loves taking off the pieces, and after some practice, has gotten pretty good at putting them back in. She has no interest in the pictures on the globe pieces, and even less interest in the facts provided about each continent. I don't see her having much interest in the facts for a few years. I love the idea behind the facts. Possibly providing different facts for different age groups would be helpful. Very well made. Although strictly a puzzle to her now, I expect this to be a toy that will entertain her in different ways as she gets older.

Comments about Learning Resources Globe Puzzle - 14 piece:

This is a cute globe but when we took it out of the box the stickers were peeling off on some of the continents. Other stickers were not put on correctly and were crooked. My son enjoys playing with the globe and is it excited to find where the continents go. It is a good way to communicate about geography with little kids!

I received this product as part of the incentive review program. The box fell apart very easily but the way the puzzle is displayed in the box is visually appealing. The globe is fun and the continents are a great way to teach kids about geography. My son was bored with it after one use. I think it would be more fun if the pieces also had detachable animals and places as a way to make learning about the continents more interactive for him, versus the parents simply reading off of the included packaging.

    Comments about Learning Resources Globe Puzzle - 14 piece:

    My three y/o son and our whole family really enjoyed playing with the globe. It's great fun pointing out the different countries. We also teach about all the different animal toys we have around the house and which countries or continent it comes from. I'm pretty happy the product is sturdy and my son can be rough with the toy.

    This globe is really cute to look at, but didn't grab the attention of my 4 and 2-1/2 year olds. We talked about the continents, but once they'd done it once they were bored. If there were some structured activities to go along with it, that would help!

            The puzzle globe is just simply adorable! It's not as big as I thought it would be but is really perfect for little ones. I love how the globe spins around and has little features about each continent. It also lists all of the oceans which is a nice bonus. Each continent has an indentation on the globe for early learners. The color coordination is perfect - for instance, Asia is written in green lettering and is also a green piece.

            This is just perfect for my son to learn about continents and parts of the world!

            Comments about Learning Resources Globe Puzzle - 14 piece:

            I received this product as part of an incentivized review program for my kindergarten classroom. My students were very excited to be "toy testers", and couldn't wait to get started! The box was easy to open, but I was not able to save it for later packaging. The puzzle was very engaging for my students and they all wanted to play with it at once. We found out that it is best for 1-2 players. The students found the puzzle pieces to be a bit tricky to match up and place back in the correct hole, but found it challenging and continued on. As they played with the globe they wondered about the name of each continent and thought it would talk to them, but it didn't. We eventually talked about each of the continents and learned a few facts from the activity guide. This puzzle globe would work nicely in an introduction geography lesson about the Earth. I will use the globe again when we study Earth Day in a few weeks. All and all the puzzle globe was fun and engaging for my kindergarten students. The one con from the class was it didn't talk for reinforcement of the names.

            My 6 year old daughter adores this toy. It's a great way to help her get curious about the world and start to develop an early understanding of geographic concepts. We use it in conjunction with the blow up globe to go on mini-"adventures" around the world, talking about all the things there are to discover and places there are to go. It's a really easy way to encourage family time.

            As a parent, I love the quality of this toy. It's well-made, tough, and sturdy.
