Globes For Kids - Their Own Reviews
More than a Globe now....
Globes for Kids are both educational and fun. If you are as bad as me at geography (not my strongest subject) then the parent is actually educated at the same time.
With his V Tech Globe my 4 year old can now find where his Grandma and Grandad live now in the UK, where we live and most of the places that his Dad and me have travelled.
With his Leapfrog Globe Harry knows the distance that his Grandma and Grandad have to travel to come and see us. He also knows the number of people who live in the UK compared to Australia and the population of lots of other places.
V Tech Globe
Sam has the V Tech Globe - it was passed down from his older brother who has now advanced to the next level.
The V Tech Globe is a good starter globe. It shows where certain animals come from, like Kangaroo's from Australia etc. It asks you questions, where to find countries etc and it has a handle on it that does the impression that your child is flying to all the different countries. This is a great feature.
Fly and Discover VTech Globe - Same as Sams.....
This is the VTech globe that you can see Sam reviewing in the video. He loves his as you can see. The joystick allows him to fly all over the world and learn about the different places and animals etc. Your child becomes the pilot.
V Tech Globe Learn and Fly - Learn while flying.....
Your child controls the journey with the joystick, flying to all different parts of the world. This globe will learn your child while having fun at the same time. It will learn continents, fun animal facts, oceans, local music, languages and people and much more.
This one is a great place to start.
From 3 years old.
Sam's Review of the V Tech Globe
V Tech Preschool Learning Adventure - ages 5 and above....
This V Tech globe will teach a child about the different oceans, animals, continents, foreigh languages and lots more around the world. There are seven different missions flights to choose from or your child can just play in free mode. The globe can be controlled from a distance thanks to the wireless joystick.
Do You Have A Dora Fan at Your House ? - Dora, Dora, Dora the Explorer....
The V Tech Dora globe is a great hit for all the Dora fans out there. Your child will take Dora and Boots on an adventure to overcome different obstacles and visit the different countries of the world.
The globe conects to the TV for more interactive play.
The Debate on Educational toys.... - Voice you Opinion...
I know that there are mixed opinions on whether a child should have educational toys at home. Some parents believe it's pushing a child too hard, where others believe there are many benefits.
Do You Think Educational Toys are Important for a Child ?
The Leapfrog Globe that Harry got for his birthday this year was a great buy. It's got lots of features. It asks you questions on finding the capital's etc. It gives you lots of information about different countries, i.e. population, currency etc. It tells you how apart countries which you select are from each other.
It's very educational and I am sure this year as he starts Grade 1 it will get lots of use.
Leapfrog Explorer Smart Globe - Harry Loves his.....
This is the one that Harry has. It really is great and it will go on to be a great globe for him for many years. It teaches so much more than just countries. It will teach your child the different currencies used around the world, population, distance between countries, locations and names of countries, highest points, bodies of water, land area comparisons, continents, time zones, capitals and much more.
It includes a quiz for your child called eureka with lots of different options - it asks about countries, currency, etc.
It also includes a multi player game where up to 4 players can take part.
It comes as no surprise to me to learn that this globe has won 6 awards.
The recommended age is 8 years, but Harry got his when he had just turned 6 and loved it.
Junior Leapfrog Globe.... - A younger version of Harrys...
This is the junior version of the Harrys Leapfrog Globe. It teaches your child about oceans, continents, foreign languages, animals, landmarks and much more.
Suitable for 3 years and upwards.
