About Puzzleball Globes:
Puzzles can be educational in so many ways because they stretch your child's brain and improve the way his mind solves problems. While he's solving a puzzle, he's really teaching his brain to work in new ways. As your child solves a geography puzzle, he is mentally drilling himself with physical facts, such as what country goes next to the one he has just completed. Subconsciously, he is making a number of associations as he searches for the next piece.
Assemble in 3 Ways
Flat puzzles of spherical items are easier to assemble, but what if you could hone your geographical skills on something more appropriate, more true-to-life? Now you can with Puzzleball Globes. Suitable for beginners as well as for a refresher for both your pre-teens and older children, Puzzleball Globes can be assembled in three different ways. Use the small number located on each of the curved, non-image sides of the puzzle piece, or for more of a challenge use a world map to assemble the globe. Finally, when you think you are ready for the expert level, try assembling the Puzzleball Globe without looking at the map or numbers.
