Featuring the latest generation of NASA satellite imagery printed directly onto the globe's surface, Inflatable EarthBalls are the most visually authentic world globes available anywhere. Each EarthBall displays 'NightGlow Cities', allowing you to see the world's cities glowing brightly at night. (It Glows in the Dark!) Fabricated using lightweight vinyl material that is electronically welded into inflatable globes, the inflatable EarthBall is portable, authentic, perfectly round and wrinkle free.
Every 16" inflatable EarthBall comes with the 20 page Global Handbook, chock full of games, activities & informational resources for Earth adventurers of all ages.
For children this is a great way to show where they live relative to the rest of the world... while also multi-tasking with ball bouncing, kicking, and rolling.
The image quality was less than I had expected, but it is just a toy and it does generate interest in the Earth and the world.
I think it's great if you don't want a map or a globe.
My son received this for 7th birthday gift yesterday and he loves it. The glow in the dark feature really is fantastic. I hope it wears well!
Great concept, I bought several as gifts. I just wish the photo had better resolution.
I was delighted when I enflated the ball. The students were equally excited and entered into the teaching eagerly.
