Kids can “fly” around a world full of fun facts with this colorful talking globe designed for young explorers. Large buttons on each continent present geographic facts and more than 1,000 quiz questions about 18 countries in nine categories, including capitals, language, food and culture, celebrations, and animals.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARDsmall parts not for children under 3 years.
For ages 5 and up. Four AA batteries, included. Approximately 9 1/2" diameter x 12"H.
I'm surprised National Geographic sanctioned this product to be sold in their store. The educational value is very shotty. It's not a very good instructional globe. The globe contains buttons that kids press to learn about the specific country. There aren't very many countries represented. Only two countries are covered in Africa and Central American has none. Not worth it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
