Inflatable World Globes
I am a Den Leader for Webelos. Each year I like to give the boys a little something for Christmas. I like it to be fun, but I also want it to be something they can use. Found these globes and they really did hit the ticket! For me they are a good size, came packaged well (not all "balled-up" so the wrinkles show when the balls are inflated), and are really well made! I have enough for the boys and also enough for stocking stuffers for kids in the family. Will buy these again!

Great Christmas box gift
Each year I fill boxes for Samaritan's purse. I love to include an inflatable globe -- country map for older children; and animal map for younger children. It's compact and doesn't take up much room in the box, yet it still gives children a ball to play with --- and it's educational at the same time. A globe is not something most of these children would ever see otherwise let alone own.

Best Purchase Ever
I used the inflatable globes to teach over twenty 4th and 5th grade students a social studies class. The kids LOVED it!!!!!! At the end of the lesson the class played the ABC globe game. Each student will guess a country that begins with a letter and locate it on their globe (e.g., A is for Australia, B is for Brazil¿¿¿). Every day my students request the globe game. I ordered another set of globes so each student will have a globe so they don¿¿¿t have to share. I also taught a class about fruit labels and had the students locate the origin of the fruit on their globes. Any time you can engage a child in a learning activity, it is a success.

One World One Family
I purchased these globes to use at our High School Ethnic Bazaar - which is a cultural diversity fair with talent and different ethnic foods etc. We used the globes for decorations. Our theme was One World One Family - so they were perfect. The price was reasonable and the quality was sufficient for our needs. Also, getting the thirteenth ball free was a pleasant surprise. The only complaint I had was that the ad said they were 14" and think the ones we actually received were only 10" .

We used these as centerpieces on pages of old Atlases with the passport sticker books. Everyone thought they were great displays for the tables. We used our compressor to fill them up, which made it easy and quick. Will be using them for another party in December as well.

What I was looking for
Went on a trip over seas and used these to help kids to understand where my home was. Able to fit into my suitcase and transport easily.

Kids loved these!
The kids in all classes (ages) loved these and they worked well with our mission project to help our kids see where the children we were helping actually lived while we played games using the ball globes.

Perfect item for our class
Well-made and the clarity of the information on this small globe was incredible.

We gave these to the kiddos at the end of Creation Celebration VBS. They love these! They are a fair price, and a good size! Yes, some of the states are missing, it seems they may have disappeared in the seams, but the kids love them, and we adults, we found some humor in it!
