Comments about National Geographic Bartlett Illuminated Globe:
Easy to look up places quickly. The globe is very up-to-date with current place names. Soft blue light casts a quiet glow in the room. Have missed having a globe that you could turn on and off when you wanted to. Now with this one, you can have the light on or off for as long as you wish.
