Globe Pencil Sharpeners
Great for party theme
Bought these as party favors for space and earth theme for son's 7th bday. They are not the most sturdy pencil sharpener but they work and they are adorable. The print is excellent and the size is very good.

These sharpeners are adorable and a great price. I found them elsewhere on the internet for a higher price. The sharpener part seems to work just fine. The globe turns, and some of the continents/oceans are marked. Would be very cute on a student's desk.

You get what you pay for
I bought these as prizes for my Kindergarteners. When they can tell me all 7 continents with no help they earn one. They LOVE them. I want to caution you that while these are cute they do not look like the picture. Only the continents and oceans are labeled and on a few globes they are misspelled. I have to check the globe before I give it to a student and have had to add the A in Asia and the P in Pacific a couple times. Some of them look good but on others the lines do not match up against the seam. Also, the sharpener part is not great. In short, you get what you pay for!

Fancy bugs - kids like them. Quality so-so.
The idea is great, and kids lough a lot when play with them. These are not made too well though: sloppy dots, some flip on a side and stop going.

Kids love 'em!
I gave these out at the end of a lesson to let my students know that they are the future of our world. It ended the lesson nicely. However, as the students opened the boxes, there were several where the sharpener had come apart. It was an easy fix with some super glue.

We ordered 300 plus of these to give out at a Girl Scout event. They look cute, but don't sharpen well and some didn't even have the sharpener. I am disappointed in this product.

I bought these to sell at a school store. The globes are very cute and actually accurate, but the sharpeners are poor quality and several fell off of the globe as soon as I opened the box.. The kids still liked them to keep on their desks. I won't buy them again for the store, however.

good for prizes
These are a good prize for a classroom. They seem to work, so far.

Should have sent them back
The first one I opened did not have a sharpener, but all others did - Glad I checked before giving out. Does not sharpen at all!
I should have returned them.
