My husband is a map nut, so when I saw your globe I bought it for him. He was so impressed he said that it gave him a real sense of just apart different areas really were.
Globe looks great when lit; but width of band that separates both halves (at equator) should not change colors on each side of equator. Otherwise, the product would be quite acceptable.
Easy to look up locations and love the way it illuminates. We would have rated it 5 stars if it had raised surfaces for the mountainous regions . . .
It is spectacular lit at night Shipping took too long- my only neg comment. Not really a complaint!
I ordered this globe for my granddaughter for Christmas, so I've not taken it out of the box, but I did open it enough to be sure it was intact and what I saw delighted me. It's beautiful, and I think she will love it
I purchased this for my young grandson (4 1/2) who although young is quite interested in where places are in our world. He ask questions about places he's visited and most recently where "Santa" lives. Right now he uses the globe as a night light and I am sure as he gets older he will make even more use of it.
Bought as Christmas gift for our grandson. He is going to love it. When we opened the box and plugged it in, we were amazed at the quality and detail of this globe. Thank you GMA for putting this company on your favorite things!!! I think we will be buying a few more for grandkids.
