      I just realized I left my review on the wrong globe. I thought this one was very high quality and my daughter loves it.

      Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari® Jr. Talking Globe™ Jr.:

      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.

          Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari® Jr. Talking Globe™ Jr.:

          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.

            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!

            I have used this product in the classroom and I found it to be very intellectually stimulating! I was very excited about this product for my children, then I started to read other reviews for it, so now I'm not so sure that I want to plunk our hard-earned military dollars on this almost 100 dollar item... 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...
