New facts and interactive puzzles can be found by focusing the camera of a smartphone or tablet onto the region of the globe you’re interested in. This will unlock a bevy of new information across six categories: animals, cultures, monuments, inventions, maps and cuisines of the world.
Each region has its own individual augmented reality animals, monuments, inventions, and foods — from elephants to the Eiffel Tower to the tastiest looking sushi — all of which will help kids to learn as they explore. This will help to build your kids’ understanding of geography, environmental science, general knowledge and knowledge of other cultures.
Challenges and clever mysteries will test kids on what they’ve learned, and completing them earns them coins that they can collect across their adventures.
If all that wasn’t exciting enough, the globe also comes with a mini-passport, stamp and stickers, so your child can record their journey from the very beginning.
User reviews have highlighted the usefulness of the globe for children of all ages — while younger ones may be content to look around for interesting animals and monuments, older children will be engrossed by the stories of rich ecosystems and human inventions.
The ten-inch globe comes accompanied with the app, a sticker book, passport, stamp and help guide. At 30% off, it’s a steal for the hours of entertainment and education it will bring, so make sure you grab it for any young globe-trotter in your life before it sells out.
