This is the interactive globe with a talking stylus that lets families explore far-flung continents from the comfort of home. Travelers simply touch the wireless stylus to cities and countries on the globe to hear thousands of curiosity-sparking facts, spoken in English, Spanish, French, or German. The globe even plays national anthems, calculates distances between cities, and leads geography "scavenger hunts" and trivia challenges that will have children spinning the Earth from Vostock Station, Antarctica (to find the coldest recorded temperature) to El Azizia, Libya (to find the hottest). The stylus recognizes symbols on the globe as well as in the included 48-page booklet to give explorers multiple ways to stumble upon historical facts and other geographic surprises. The unit can be updated for free through the manufacturer's website. Includes USB cable and two AAA batteries. Ages 5 and up. 19" H x 16" W x 12" D. (3 lbs.)

4 Language Talking Globe
By BILL THE GOLFER
from WARETOWN NJ
DEL. WAS PROMPT, WELL PACKAGED. AS USUAL THE SIZE OF THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL IS WAY TO SMALL. THE VOLUME IN THE POINTER IS WAY TO LOW ,YOU NEED TO PLUG IN YOU OWN HEAD PHONES IF THEIR IS CONVERASTION'S GOING ON AROUND YOU.
Fun for family
from Granby, Québec, Canada
I bought this for my grand-children (twins, boy & girl 10 yrs, and boy 8 yrs). All love "working" with it - finding population, music, economics - and changing languages (as they speak English and French and a little bit of Spanish). Their mother has to allow them a maximum of time each before they have to let a sibling have his or her turn...
Great Learning Tool

I am a retired teacher. I purchased this for my seven year old granddaughter. She loves it. I wish I had had this in my classroom!

Our 6 & 7 year old boys got this globe as a present from their grandparents. It was an instant hit. There are so many different things that we can all learn about, it keeps everyone engaged.
from Crandall, Indiana
My 6 year old granddaughter loves this globe. She and her Daddy spend hours exploring the world and learning the different languages. Great together times for my son with his daughter. Its the perfect gift that will be used for many years to come.
Educational but fun

It is great, but it is difficult to place the pen in the correct spot
