A present for my 4 year old niece. Great mixture of fact and fun (animals, mermaids and Father Christmas alongside the various countries), looks lovely when lit. An enormous hit with the 4 year old and her 2 year old sister was also entranced.
I would have rated the globe much higher but the bulb stopped working after a couple of weeks which I think is really poor - it is supposed to be an "illuminated" globe after all! (It has not been used as a night light or been left on for extended periods.) Will now have to source replacement bulbs - perhaps a spare should be included? Notice other customers have had the same problem.

Gives a nice glow
It feels a little bit light and flimsy but overall good for the money.

A lovely globe with interesting pictures of regional animals and costumes etc. A good talking point with children. I really like it!
Our globe doesn't swivel on the axis freely - it sticks a bit when you turn it.

the pictures showing where in the world to find different landmarks, animals etc are brilliant and the light from the inside makes it more interesting.
No bad points as yet!

Great for the age group as the pictures give info about the country that parents/ grandparents can then chat about with the child thus adding a bit extra to just where the country is
Might be a bit crowded

My daughters (4 and 6) love this - it is perfectly pitched at this age group
Bulb blew within 5 minutes of constructing - would be good if a spare bulb was included as they are not easy to find.

Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the Illuminated Globe

  1. Karen asked on
    Approx one month after receiving this globe, the bulb has stopped working. Anyone got the details that I can use to order more. It's a shame as the rest of the product is great - I was thinking that others had got unlucky with the bulb - but it appears to be consistently poor! (and preferably an alternative manufacturer than the one that comes in the box - I am not sure I wish to replace it once a month!)
    1. Cat replied on
      How funny Karen. Our bulb has just gone too after a month! Wasn't impressed as it is an unusual bulb too. It's an E14 Max 25w small screw fitting according to base of lamp. Best place to look is by googling and buying online - I think that is what my husband just did. Just make sure head is narrow enough to get through hole in globe. Hope that helps! Kate

  2. Sharon asked on
    Can you spin the globe around, concerned as its also a lamp that it doesn't move.
    1. Kyra replied on
      Hi,
      Yes the globe spins around.
      The light fixture doesn't interfere with this.
  3. Doug asked on
    Is this globe interactive? Does it talk information back to you etc?
