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

    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

          My daughter loves this globe. She in very interested in learning about all the other countries in relation to the US and being able to see the star constellations when lit up. Another great thing about this globe is that she uses it as a night light.

            The globe was exactly as described on product package & it works fine. I bought it for my 4 almost 5 year old grandson. As a retired teacher, it seems to be the perfect globe for him, as he is very interested in maps, globes and outer space.
