Explore both the world around us and the dark depths of outer space with this rather clever 2 in 1 illuminated globe. Not only does this globe include a detailed map of Earth, complete with country borders and world capitals, it can also show star constellations, making this cool globe a great geographical educational tool for children and adults alike.
The beauty of this lighted world globe is in its automatic light sensor. By day, this earth globe simply shows the countries and capitals of the world, but by night, this nifty little light sensor can detect when it's getting dark and automatically switch to a celestial globe, complete with all the star constellations. For this reason, it can double as a beautifully decorative night light for children, as it just emits a subtle glow in a room.
A great gift for children or adults of any age, this globe with stars would look equally cool in a home office as it would a child's bedroom. Learning a little more about geography and the world we live in is an interesting topic whoever you are, and this illuminated globe of the world is the perfect way to go about it. Whether you're more focused on astronomy and constellations, or political borders and world capitals, this earth and constellation globe truly offers the best of both worlds.
So whether you're looking to teach your kids the country borders, major lakes and rivers, or you're hoping to unlock your inner astronomer and learn a bit more about the make-up of that vast night sky, this 2 in 1 globe is a great educational tool for all ages. This star globe would also look great in any children's room or study, no home should be without one!
My 6 year old son loves his new globe and was so excited when it arrived so quickly. He is really interested in the subject following a project at school and we talk about the stars and look at the globe every night now before he goes to sleep.

This was for my grandsons 5th birthday. He was so pleased with it. He has it in his bedroom and goes to sleep looking at the stars each night. I would recommend this for adults and children.

The globe was a little extra present for my husband who is 73 end of January!!! He had been looking at them making comments etc. Because it is a two fold globe with the constellations as well I thought that would be interesting for him, plus for our grandchildren as well. It's been a hit with everyone so I am very pleased with my purchase. Many thanks.

Excellent, it's the second one I've bought. First one was for my 7 year old grandson's birthday which was seen by another grandson who was 5 on 8th October. He put in a request for one!
