We love to travel over here and we LOVE learning about the World! I purchased this inflatable globe and we have a blast learning with it. We play our own version of 'catch' with it. Sit in a circle and pass the ball to whoever you would like. When they catch it, they share the name of the Country where each of their hands have landed! Name of the Country, it's Neighboring Countries, The Continent it is on & The Ocean it is nearest. So FUN & they don't even know they are learning!
