Jack loves exploring the world and learning about different cultures, history, dinosaurs anything like that. He loves to sit and watch the discovery channel and learn about animals and places around the world. When asked would he like to give the Day and Night Smart Globe a try I had to say yes because this is no ordinary globe its and interactive globe that teachers you about things around the world.
Oregon Scientific have brought out a range of interactive smart globes which come to life with and app on your phone or tablet. There is the adventure, explorer and day and night globe to choose from. They range in price from £29.99 – £129.99. We are reviewing the Day and Night globe priced £29.99
The globe is really easy to set up and the instructions even come with a QR code to allow you download the app really easily. Once downloaded it was really easy to set up and just requires some basic information. By Day, the globe shows political boundaries, oceans and seas, borders,countries and capitals. At night with just the touch of a button, budding astronomers can view an illuminated map of the stars and planets. Displaying 88 constellations, the globe turns into an impressive room decoration, ideal for children who find a night-light soothing.
At first we didn’t really know what the app was going to add to the globe experience. It soon became clear it was going to be very informative and lots of fun. To begin with we looked at famous landmarks and I loved being able to have the Statue Of Liberty on my wall.
We then started to explore further and we looked at the Dinosaurs. Jack loves learning about Dinosaurs he has had a love for them since being little. Look closely below and you can see them walking round.
Then there is a Weather mode and animal mode as well. Each one tells you different things about which ever part of the world you are scanning. We had so much fun reading facts about various places.
Then the night mode and the 88 Constellations, by this Time Jack was super excited and ran off to his room in the darkness looking outside to see if he could work any out.
There is so much to explore with this globe. We have barely touched the surface in this review and I know Jack has so much fun and exploring ahead of him. I am going to look in to getting one of the other globes for Jack as a Christmas gift because he has had so much fun exploring with this one. The boys are fascinated with it as well and as they grow they can learn lots of random facts just like Jack.
You can purchase the globe direct from Oregon Scientific and also places like Amazon and toy shops.
