Purchased as a gift for my 86/80 year old father/mother. They could not believe when they opened the globe. Their response was that if it was not for them, I would have a hard time getting it back!! (I currently work in Saudi and they are in Nevada) Your marketing with a 25% discount sealed the deal!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I bought this globe because I travel a great deal and wanted to update my previous globe. What a disappointment. Cheap materials, poor joining at the seams, print almost blurry. I chose this model, thinking it would be superior to the National Geographic globe, but it's not. I would gladly pay more for better quality. Also, how about offering a 15 or 18 inch desk globe?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
From National Geographic:Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. We regret that this globe did not meet your expectations. We understand that our customer service department has been in touch to find a solution that works best for you.
