Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by honeybeeisme Great Value!
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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JEDK 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.

Bought these to use in my school music program. They look great. Actually more detailed than I had expected.
10 of the 12 hold air just fine. 2 of them have holes from the manufacturing process.
They stink to high heaven. They have a chemical smell to them that is very strong. Give them some time to air out before using them. I'm now sitting in my classroom with all of the windows and doors open trying to air it out.

4 out of 24 balls had holes in them and would not hold air.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tscc Great product for the price.
We ordered 12 globes and 2 of them had very slow leaks. It was no problem as we had only planned to use 9 of them in the first place.

I've purchased this many times over. We've used them in Children's Church, VBS and now for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. They make great globes, with easy-to-read printing, and when you're done, you can deflate them to store! Kids have thrown them, kicked them, and I've used one as a physical therapy tool. They've never deflated or popped. I'm sure this will not be the last time I order these.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Offtoseetheworld Smaller than expected...
Although these globe beach balls will probably stay inflated, I found them to be quite small for a beach ball. Plus even though I know there must be a seam....for most of them the seam goes right through Uganda...the country I wanted to highlight!
They are made of a sturdy rubber product ....so I don't think they will puncture easily! Also a pro: they are printed well

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BethL7135 Fun but inaccurate
If you want to pass out accurate info then do not buy these. Ex. Fairbanks is not the capital of Alaska.

The inflatable globe is a great tool for learning. Unfortunately, it is not an updated globe. South Sudan is missing.
