I never had a globe as a child but always loved seeing them and spinning them round. A globe is such a good learning tool for children and let’s them see how big the world is. We have previously had the pleasure of reviewing the Oregon Day and Night globe and we loved how interactive that globe was with the app and it’s features. The adventure globe is the next step on.
The adventure globe is more interactive than the day and night globe. It’s has a pen which interacts with the globe. You can touch the pen straight into the globe and it will tell you basic information about the country and place you touch. There is also an interactive section below the globe you can use with the pen. I have pictured this below for you. You touch your category and then touch the globe to activate that feature. It tells you all sorts of information about the countries of the world.
Additional to the globe and the interactive section you can use the Oregon app. The App brings the globe to life and has various things to select from like food, places, animals. The app makes the globe come to life in 3D on the screen very similar to the day and night globe. I have taken a screen shot of the features from Amazon so you can see what the adventure globe has to offer.
The pen is really simple to use and has the globes on and off switch. It is attached by a wire so no walking off with it and losing it. The globe requires 3 AA batteries to make it work but they seem to last ages because the twins and Jack have been on ours for hours so far no issues.
We have really enjoyed exploring the world from the comfort of our living room. It has opened up a world of discovery for the twins who are only aged 4 and Jack who is 10 and I know the globe and it features alongside the app will just keep on giving as they grow and learn.
The app also has a great quiz on it to test your knowledge. Jack has taken great pleasure in telling me he knows more than I do. Think I need to do some swatting up.
The Oregon Adventure globe is great as a stand alone globe for children to learn, it provides so much information. It also has so much more to offer with the app as well. You can download the app from the IOS or google-play store. It’s free to download and the QR code is on the side of the box which makes it really simple to do.
Oregon have a range of globes which vary in price from around £30. The Adventure globe is currently around the £55-£60 mark. You can purchase them from toyshops, Rymans stationery and also Amazon. I have popped a link to some of the range below for you.
