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 Three Different 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.

Perfectly-Crafted, Curved Puzzle Pieces Allow for an Exact Fit
Each Puzzleball Globe comes with beautiful, vibrantly-colored, and perfectly-crafted curved puzzle pieces that allow for an exact fit and are easily assembled with no glue required! A stand is included to display your work of art, but you will have so much fun putting the globe together over and over that you shouldn't be surprised if the stand gets little use!

    My 8 year old loves this puzzle! September 23, 2015
    Reviewer: Sarah C.  
    I did not originally order this with our kits. My son saw it in the catalog and asked me to get it, so I was able to get it with our doodle dollars! He was thrilled. I was impressed that the backs of the pieces are numbered. We sorted the pieces by 10s (which was a great math activity too!) before putting it together. I love that the pieces are tight because I think that the sphere would not hold together quite as well while assembling it if they weren't. The pieces are a durable plastic, which I was grateful for when a drink was spilled all over it! We have only assembled it once, so far, and it was up for a little while, but we have plans to do it again soon!

    Great Puzzle January 15, 2013
    Reviewer: Jessica  
    This puzzle is wonderful! My students think it is so great because it is in a globe shape! The students spend hours playing with it, putting it together. The pieces are a little bit hard to fit together, but as the puzzle is used it gets a little bit better. This is a great geography tool as well as critical thinking. Students learn where things are in the world while having fun doing a puzzle! Love it!
