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.

Finding different countries that make up our world

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.

Transforming into the 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.

The globe transformed into constellations

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.

  5. New Zealand! We went there as part of our backpacking trip pre settling down. It was amazing, so much to see and do and so many ways to explore the country. We even got engaged out there! We have always said that we would love to take the children there when they are older, hire a camper van and take them to some of the places we went to (they would love the overlander railway) and to explore some places we couldn’t fit in (would love to explore the far North and the far South).
