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.
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.
