Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommend this product for kids to learn the world around 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. Sincerely, Madhu

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. I just realized I left my review on the wrong globe. I thought this one was very high quality and my daughter loves it. Disclosure I received a free product to help inform my writing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from AC adapter bought this online to send to our granddaughter, but I couldn't purchase the AC adapter to go with it so it was kind of a bust Christmas morning.... Too bad

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointing 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Missing some words! Key locations like "north America" are missing from the voice. Questions come out like: ........is circled in red, true or false? Where the dots should be a name like north America. About 10% of questions are missing a few words. New batteries don' help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Learning Geography Is Fun We got this globe for my daughter for Christmas and she has had a lot of fun with it. She is only six now and some of it is beyond her, but the beauty of it is it will be something she will learn from for a long time. It has two different levels of play with true and false questions. It is very easy to operate and understand. She has enjoyed playing against mom and dad who enjoy it as well. It is a great gift idea!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent This is a very interesting and educational toy. Not only does it teach children about the different places, it also keeps their interest by talking and giving all kind of facts about the different places. Not only is it educational but also alot of fun. I would highly reccomend this toy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent toy This is one of the best toys that I have encountered. As a health care professional working with children, I find educational toys like this to be the best for stimulated and entertaining children while teaching them all at the same time. This globe was fun to play with and kept the children I was with interested for over 30 min!
