At night, the illuminated world globe features switch-controlled LED lights so it turns into a beautiful lighted globe for nighttime learning

This globe was a lot of fun to play with and we loved using it to teach my kids about the world. My kids (aged 3, 7, and 9) were engaged in learning, and they love being able to write on the map as well. The globe is bright enough to see in any room, though it isn't great for dark rooms. The globe takes about an hour to fully charge, and when it's fully charged, it puts out about a 10- to 15-second light show. If you press the power button once, it cycles through a variety of colors, and pressing it twice in a row cycles through all of the colors. The colors are quite bright, and there were even a few times when my kids were able to discover constellations by looking up at the sky through the map. The globe has two buttons that are used to write on the map. The buttons are easy to press, and they emit a satisfying sound whenever they're pressed. The globe is battery operated, but it comes with a USB cable that you can use to charge the globe. The globe also comes with an instruction manual, a globe stand, and a pen. The globe stand is plastic, and it's fairly lightweight. The pen is retractable, and it's made of cheap plastic. The pen is perfectly sized for little hands, and it writes well. The pen is cheap, but it works fine. The instruction manual is well-written, and it's easy to understand. The instructions are very clear, and they provide detailed steps for learning how to use the pen. The manual is written in English.

Fun & Educational: encourage inquisitive children to explore the world of science ,Kids would have a general idea about world and more stories waiting for them to explore and discovery. We would like to broaden their imagination through our constellation globe instead of limiting it.

Our top pick for kids' Earth globes, the TTKTK Illuminated World Globe for Kids with Wooden Stand 7 in 1- Night View Stars Map Constellation Globe with Detailed Colorful World ,Built-in LED Bulb, Educational Gift, 8 inch is solidly made, features hundreds of glowing stars and moons, and is brightly illuminated. Kids will enjoy gazing at the map and constellations, and the wooden stand is sturdy enough for little hands. The globe costs a little more than our budget pick, the Little Tikes Globe Light, but it offers more functionality, more constellations, and more light. The accompanying wooden stand takes up more room than I would like, but it's better than using the globe as a toy. The globe also omits our top pick's star labels, but the addition of constellations brings it closer to our budget pick's star display.

by Little Experimenter

TOP-QUALITY EARTH GLOBE : Unlike other world globes that are quick to fall apart, the Little Experimenter childrens globe is made of durable, child-safe materials to ensure a long-lasting toy. Buy now and enjoy globe exploration for years to come!

The Little Experimenter Globe for Kids is a well-made globe with a fun and educational design. The globe itself has a sturdy, satisfyingly solid feel to it, and the stand provides a stable base. (The globe can be tilted to an ideal viewing position, and a built-in sensor turns the constellation map light on and off automatically as night falls.) The globe is illuminated with 14 glow-in-the dark constellations, and the map has 10 glowing planets and 30 brightly glowing stars. The globe is fairly small, so children will spend most of their time studying the flag icons and reading the globe's text, but the globe also has several play features: a movable dial that spins around the planet, a compass that points toward the North Pole, and a clock face that marks the current time. The spinning dial and compass are activated by a button on the globe, and the clock face is activated by a button in the stand. There's also a button that triggers a light show of a rotating rainbow pattern and twinkling stars, and a button that launches a countdown timer. These last two features might be too advanced for young children, but toddlers will love spinning the globe, watching the stars, and watching the colorful rainbow spin. The globe has light-up buttons in each corner, so it's ready to entertain for hours. It also comes with a handy carrying handle, making it simple to take the globe with you on vacation or onto school trips. The globe is for children ages 3 and up, and it's recommended for children ages 3 and up, but it's small and compact enough that older and younger children will probably enjoy it, too.

Little Experimenter Illuminated Globe of World The with Stand

by Little Experimenter

DURABLE, NON-TIP BASE One Of The Best Educational Toys, This Small Globe is an Ideal Fit for Childrens Little Hands; Perfectly Sized as a Desk Globe

This illuminated globe is worlds better than our previous pick, and it's the best globe for kids. It's twice as big as our previous pick, with a detailed world map. The globe's LED lights are bright enough to make it usable in dim light, and the switch-controlled lights make it perfect for nighttime learning. The globe's raised concerns that it's too big and too heavy for kids to carry, but we found that it weighs just 4 pounds. The globe's also very beautiful, making it a great decorative item for kids' bedrooms and dorm rooms. But the globe's best feature for kids is its educational value. The globe's large and colorful map makes it ideal for learning new countries, capitals, and continents, and the globe's LED lights make it easy for kids to navigate the map. The globe's also made of durable materials, so it won't break if kids drop it. The globe's biggest downsides are its high price and its relatively short battery life. Its purchase price is twice as high as our previous pick's, but it's much sturdier, and its LEDs last 50% longer. We also wish it had a longer power cord that would have allowed it to be used either on a desk or by the kids' bed.
