I have used this product in my classroom for the past two week and I absolutely love it. The only issue that I have is that the plastic bolts are very easily broken. Not a huge deal because I will just go to the hardware store to pick up some metal bolts, but I feel that these need to be a bit stronger. Thank You!

The solar system colors and sizes looked great. When we tried to inflate most of the smaller shapes were oval or lopsided. The smaller ones were also really hard to inflate because the nozzle didn't have an air trap so they would start to deflate as soon as you were done inflating. We ended up finding the same thing much cheaper and should have gone with the cheaper version of the same thing.

    Comments about Learning Resources Inflatable Light-Up Globe:

    This globe is very detailed and the light in the base is awesome. I got this for an elderly family member who follows the news closely and would like to explore where the news is happening, but her tiny apartment has no room for a traditional globe. What it ISN'T is a 'beach' ball - if you pound it around like a toy it won't last long. She actually put a string around the inflation valve so she can hang it up. Loves it!

      Great graphics and no words - this way the child who can read does not have an unfair advantage over his sibling who cannot read...yet. They have to learn and remember the names of places..

        Great tubes for great discoveries!

        By Michele

        from CT

        Comments about Learning Resources Inflatable Light-Up Globe:

        I ordered sensory tubes for my daughter and she loves them. The cylinder shape is very easy to grasp and explore with one hand. I have filled them with bells, objects of the same color, and pompoms covered in lemon extract her favorite smell. I don't recommend filling them with liquid as they tend to drip. I filled it with water and glitter as shown in the brochure and they all had a slow drip. Otherwise this is a great product!

            Learning Resources sent me over their Primary Science Sensory Tubes to review on my blog and these are so much fun! I know so many teachers are always on the lookout for great science manipulatives because usually that is one of the first subjects that takes a backseat to Reading and Math. Using these, students are able to really use the Scientific Method to check some things out!

              Comments about Learning Resources Inflatable Light-Up Globe:

              So what do kids need to do with four clear tubes?? Well there are tons of things to do with them! They come with solid lids that fit on the end so you can actually put liquid in them and they also come with a vented lid to stimulate the nose… possibly with a flower or maybe add in some herbs and spices or some essential oils. Of course you can also put in anything solid and colorful!!! When we first received the tubes we were pretty excited to try them out so off we went on a hunt to find objects to put in the tubes for little Ms. Charlee Ann to try out. She is always fascinated with her sister's ball collection. Her sister collects the tiny bouncy balls and Charlee Ann is never allowed to play with them because they are still a choking hazard for her. So we filled 2 of the tubes up with little bouncy balls and you should have seen her face light up!! She got the biggest grin on her face and looked at her sister in amazement and said really loud …. BALLS!! So then we found some beads and added them to another one and filled the last one full of bells. Every single one of them was a hit. We were able to shake them all and hear different sounds and look through the clear glass and see all the different colors! We had a ball….no pun intended.
