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!

We are about to return the product. The photo on the box indicates that when the globe it iluminated, the background is almost black and 99% of what you see then are the constellations. In reality, even if the globe is in a pitch dark room, the background is blue and you can still easilly see all the continents in their various colors. So you have a confusing image of stars superimposed on a regular globe view. You see both images at the same time, which is not at all what the photo on the box shows. Terribly cheap design

      Comments about Edu Science Young Explorer Illuminated Globe:

      Got this as a birthday gift for my 9yr old. The constellations do show through but the whole globe is illuminated too. So do not think the stars will project to the ceiling. It's good as a night light, we were concerned that it maybe too bright but so far so good. He loves it.

      Comments about Edu Science Young Explorer Illuminated Globe:

      This globe is made of thin metal with a plastic base. It would seem if it fell, it might dent. The base is a little wobbly, but not too bad. The switch to turn on the internal light is sturdy and loose enough for my 5 year old to use. There is a slight misalignment of the two hemispheres at the equator. This does plug into the wall, so keep that in mind. The light is bright enough to show the constellations in a well lit room.

      I feel a globe is a great thing to have in the house. It helps show that there is a whole world out there (pun intended) for your children. It also reminds me where some of the smaller countries are located!

            I got this for my 12 year old son for Christmas and he absolutely loves it. He has shown me a thing or two about our planet that has changed since I was young. And the most amazing thing about this globe is that you can see the constellations when its dark. So Cool
