The globe comes cased in a plastic fronting and cardboard box base. Once you open it up you can remove the entire thing as well as the various continent pieces out of the box.
The Learning Resources Globe has several different shape entry points and pegs for each continent, that way you can’t mess up where they go. There really isn’t any other learning to be done with this. The pieces are different colors and there are pictures of indigenous animals and landmarks on the various pieces.
I like that you can’t confuse where the pieces go because the shapes have to match up and no two are the same.
I don’t really like that there aren’t any sounds or other learning materials.
This Puzzle game is recommended for players 3 and older.
The Learning Resources Puzzle Globe is a good learning option but for the age group It doesn’t hold a candle to the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Greetings Globe. The lack of additional learning, songs or other materials means that the learning experience is limited, even if the design is really neat.
