About Me Parent
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Merchant response: Sounds like your world has stopped spinning! This Talking Globe Jr is not working correctly. Please look for an email from us to fix/replace it for you.

I hear that if one SHOULD get an answer wrong, the globe will just TELL it's wrong, not WHAT you got wrong, so you'll have to do a little more outside research, IF you or your children care to...
