My 9 year-old son had some birthday money to spend and found this globe in the science section of ToysRUs. He loves it! I love it too! First, it is educational in that he can see where various countries are located. He asks that the US be pointed toward his pillow at night, so he can see where he lives. Second, after dark, he can light up the star constellations across the world. He instantly recognized the Big Dipper from seeing it in the sky during camping trips. I'm sure he will have this globe for many years to come!

Loved the idea but its been a disappointment. First, the alternate image of the constellations is not in the least bit accurate. If you turn on the light at night its not a black background, all the colors light up and the constellations appear...faintly. Unfortunately that problem resolved itself quickly because the bulb burnt out and so far cannot find a replacement. Last issue, which is minor, is the northern and southern hemispheres don't line up exactly perfect and you can't adjust. Its a hair off, most people wouldn't notice.

      Comments about Edu Science Young Explorer Illuminated Globe:

      After searching high and low for a globe I finally found this one
      at ToysRUs- never would have thought that I would find
      one at a toy store. It is the coolest globe. Very clear, my 12 year old
      daughter absolutely loves searching for countries on it.
      She will spin it and close her eyes, when it stops
      that's where she will go when she grows up! It also
      lights up showing all the constellations. I wish I
      had something like this when I was growing up-
