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.

    Comments about Educational Insights Geosafari Jr. 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

      It's easy to use, the voice for the globe is clear, and kids are having fun while learning and great for school age children. Although I'm a little disappointed that it did not include the batteries and the adapter cables so you can just plug and use the toy if you ran out of batteries. I also wish this toy is available in the stores not just online.

        Comments about Educational Insights Geosafari Jr. Talking Globe:

        Bought as a Birthday gift for our grandson. Was a bit difficult to assemble the rod that goes through the globe to attach it to the stand. Wasn't immediately evident as to how to get it started so we couldn't watch grandson play with it. His father later reported that it was fine as soon as you found the right knob to turn on and that the two of them were enjoying and learning together. Think it was a good choice.

              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...
