Globe Stress Balls
A bit small
I bought these to put in boxes that I bought for my two year old class at church and they were a bit smaller than I thought they would be but overall they are good quality. I will be presenting the children with gifts as I teach them about our Savior Jesus's Birthday. The wise men brought him gifts and John 3:16 says that "For God so Loved the WORLD, that he sent his son" So I'm giving the children the world in their box to show how much God loves us & them!

Could be firmer
These were part of an assortment I purchased for my office. Everyone tested the different balls before making a final selection. The comment I heard most was that the earth balls were not as firm as the users would like. However, that did not stop a dozen plus people from choosing them. It's a good feeling to hold the world in your hands. And the colors are pleasant. No one cares that some of the continents look as though they were painted by an impressionist.

pretty nice, but a little cheaper would be better
got these for my store because people kept asking for stress balls. They are pretty nice but a little lower price point may sell them better. Overall, pretty good.

Good gift but just a little expensive.

These stress balls are perfect for small hands and work wonderfully with the children with whom I use them. I didn't even think about the art work until I read the other reviews. What they look like isn't important to me because I was looking for function and not aesthetics. If you care deeply what the ball looks like, then listen to the other folks.

Good purchase for general use
These stress balls are of good quality overall as far as a stress ball goes. If you are looking for an acurate portrayal of a global map you aren't going to get it here, but if you are looking for a general portrayal they are just fine. About a 1/4th of the balls in each box (I ordered 9 boxes) had slightly sloppy lattitude and longitude lines. They worked just fine for my purpose of take-home reminders about a lesson learned.

I ordered these for a unique purpose of decorating a cake with them. I was disappointed with the quality of the printing of the land masses. Very sloppy and inaccurate. I could really only use 2 of 12.

The art work on balls was pretty bad, as it bore no resemblance to continent shapes.

smaller than the average stress ball
This stress ball just doesn't have enough diameter.

I agree with the other reviewer. The "globes" did not look like actual globes. It's very hard to recognize the continents, so I would not recommend them for student use. Buy something else.
