This globe works so well! My daughter is only 4, so some of the content is over her head, but she is always so eager to learn with it. She frequently asks her grandfather and I to do the quiz questions with her. Even though she doesn't already know the answers, she loves watching me show her the places on the globe.

its a shame because this is such a great learning tool not only for kids but adults as well and when i first saw the item bout 2-3 yrs ago i knew i wanted it just had to wait till my daughter became of age to use it. The globe used to come with a pen that you would point to a particular part of the globe and it would give u information on that part of the globe u pointed to depending on wat u selected ( traditional music, population,density) etc.....now the item comes with no pen it just ask random questions doesnt give any answers if u get it wrong, very low volume, and doesnt provide u with options such as the ones listed above for u to find out the population, terrain, or the native music from that area, but the price is higher than it used to be lol .......i guess as time goes by u get less and pay more ..............that sucks ;)

    Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Talking Globe:

    This is a great product for kids to learn in a fun way the world around them. Being a great Geography subject enthusiast at school, I liked the talking globe as soon as I saw it and bought it as a gift for my nieces who are aged 3 and 7.

    When I was going over with the quiz with them on the talking globe, I did like to have had one of the features be improved on this product. We do have these questions being asked by the quiz master. I like the way the questions are composed .But, I would like options that are being given are explicitly given a number either (1 or 2) as the options .

    For example Some thing like " Which is the largest continent on the Globe" "Option 1 ASIA Option 2 AUSTRALIA". The current formatting of the same question on your current product is as below " Which is the largest continent on the Globe" "ASIA AUSTRALIA".

    The reason I would like to see this change is when a child is paying attention to the question and trying to figure out the answer and ends up picking the correct choice, they are not able to connect the correct answer they picked to either number 1 option or number 2 option.

    I do think making this change would benefit the learning of the child.

    Thank you again for making a great learning product like talking globe.

    Sincerely,
    Madhu

        Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Talking Globe:

        The instructions are obscure. Most answers cannot be found on globe. Three categories, one being US and Canada only. One place in instructions says choose option 1 and in another it says choose 3. Doesn't matter it asks world questions no matter what you choose.

        Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Talking Globe:

        My daughter got the Educational Insights Geosafari Talking Globe Jr. for her 6th birthday.

        Although the product was working, the join around the center of the globe (where the top half and bottom half come together) were not aligned properly when it was assembled. This has left a gap in places along the seam where the equator tape line that covers the join is not connected and has gone inside the seam.

        Some parts of the globe were not smooth either, a bit bubbly.

        This was very disappointing. We decided to return it. I would like to purchase another one as my daughter really liked it but I'm frightened to get the same poor quality. The more I read reviews about it and the more skeptical I am.

            Key locations like "north America" are missing from the voice. Questions come out like: ........is circled in red, true or false? Where the dots should be a name like north America. About 10% of questions are missing a few words. New batteries don' help.

              We got this globe for my daughter for Christmas and she has had a lot of fun with it. She is only six now and some of it is beyond her, but the beauty of it is it will be something she will learn from for a long time. It has two different levels of play with true and false questions. It is very easy to operate and understand. She has enjoyed playing against mom and dad who enjoy it as well. It is a great gift idea!

              I have used this product in the classroom and I found it to be very intellectually stimulating! I was very excited about this product for my children, then I started to read other reviews for it, so now I'm not so sure that I want to plunk our hard-earned military dollars on this almost 100 dollar item... I hear that if one SHOULD get an answer wrong, the globe will just TELL it's wrong, not WHAT you got wrong, so you'll have to do a little more outside research, IF you or your children care to...
