We have a great new giveaway today, including a review for this 2 in 1 globe which is great for kids. The globe features both the earth and the constellations. How does it do that I hear you ask? Well there’s a clever LED light that magically changes the map of the earth into a map of the stars and their constellations. The globe is part of the Brainstorm toys range which you can see more of their products reviewed over here – Outdoor Adventure Toys
2 in 1 Globe Earth & Constellations
Map of the World
We have recently had to take our sons map of the world down off the wall. I was looking to replace it with a globe featuring a map of the world. So when I was approached to review this product including one to giveaway to my readers I jumped at the chance. It’s perfect for our inquisitive child. I don’t want him to grow up with no knowledge of the countries that make up our great planet. I believe that as a family that love to travel it’s a necessary part of our travels to know where these countries are.
The map of the world is very colourful and perfect for young eyes. Each country is written in bold type with the capital city indicated with a star, plus a few other major cities. All the seas and oceans are also indicated on the globe including some natural features such as lakes and rivers. It is lightweight so easy for kids to pick up and look at. The scale of the map is 1:55,900,00 and is 22.8cm in width. The recommended age is 8+. Our son is almost 5 and he can read the country names and loves the way in which the globe turns from earth to stars.
Map of the constellations
If you move the globe into a darker room or if the room itself starts to darken the globe magically transforms from a map of the world into a map of the stars and it’s constellations. The constellations are indicated with both their Latin and common names. The globe transforms with the help of LED illumination and a light sensor. Your child can put the globe on a windowsill at night time and spot the constellations via the globe. It also makes an attractive night light.
Our son was absolutely fascinated with how the map of the world transformed before his eyes into a map of the constellations. It’s so clever and like nothing I’ve ever seen before. I’m looking forward to being able to point more out to him and helping him to remember where countries, oceans and more are located.
The product does not come with any batteries or a power supply. Either (or both) will need to be purchased for the magic to work. You will need an AC/DC adaptor (exact specifications are given in the instructions) or 4 x C 1.5v LR14 batteries.
