Challenge Your Most Astute Geography Student For the pre-teen and older consider this 540-piece Puzzleball Globe which will challenge your most astute geography student. This more complex puzzle comes with both a plastic base stand and metal rotation stand.

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.

108 to 960-Piece Globes
If your family consists of younger ones who love puzzles, you'll be delighted to see that Puzzleball Globes now start with an easier 108-piece Puzzleball Globe and a 180-piece XXL Puzzleball Globe. Lots of appropriate animals and birds add to their appeal. Once completed, they can be displayed using the included display stand. For ages 10 to adult consider the 540-piece Puzzleball Globe.

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 that you shouldn't be surprised if the stand gets little use!

Fun in school January 14, 2013
Reviewer: Robyn  
We love this puzzle for our 6th grader. She does a few pieces each week since I wrote it on her weekly planning sheet. It will take the entire school year to complete it, but what an accomplishment it will be. She has always wanted a globe & she will have one. Plus it is fun to do a puzzle during the school week - it's almost like goofing off that is required!

3D Is Cool! May 31, 2012
Reviewer: Pam from MA  
My children and I put this puzzleball together in less than an afternoon. Having an atlas handy was definitely helpful! The pieces are sturdy plastic and fit together nicely. Because the fit is tight, this not suitable for little hands. The pieces are also smaller, so watch out for hand-to-mouth co-ordinators! If you accidentally drop this after construction, be prepared for denting. You'll more than likely have to partially disassemble to get it back to rights. The stand allows the globe to spin freely which makes it very useful.
