My 3 Year old Grandson loves this. He loves showing everyone where he has been on holiday but the addition of it being lit up is fabulous.

It would appear to be a common theme on the product that the bulb life is dreadful - no more than 24 hours after my son had plugged it in the bulb had gone - this really isn't acceptable and ELC need to rectify this common issue rapidly otherwise there are going to be many more disappointed customers. thankfully a previous reviewer has found a replacement which i too will be purchasing because the code that ELC provide in the FAQ's does not exist on their website!
That said the glob itself is excellent - my 5 year old son is fascinated with all the counties and the addition of the pictorial images makes it doubly educational (for him and me!)

Great item but bulb is a huge problem. Lasted only 2 weeks and was virtually impossible to find a replacement as there is no instructions on which lamp and where to get a new one. ELC do not sell replacements and if it wasn't for a previous review we would still be looking for a bulb now.

My daughter loves this globe but, just like many other reviewers, the bulb blew far too quickly. I then found that replacing it - and I tried a lot of electrical and DIY stores - is basically impossible. I rang ELC who said they could send me a replacement bulb but they were out of stock and this was true for easily 3 weeks. So I hunted on the internet and found that a 7W LED Corn bulb, E14 Warm white is small enough to fit inside and should last much longer than the bulb supplied. Moreover, I can order another through Amazon with no more hassle! Why ELC cannot use a normal bulb that can be replaced from any high street store is beyond me but hopefully my searching for a bulb will help another globe owner!

Our 4 year old loved this as a Christmas present and it has taken pride of place in his room but like other similar reviews the bulb blew within a few days. Living relatively remote, getting hold of a replacement swiftly has proven to be a bit of a pain and would have certainly expected the bulb to have lasted longer than it did.

A nice big colourful globe but unfortunately the bulb seemed to go in a few days. Otherwise would rate higher.

Bought this as a Christmas present for my 8 year old daughter, which she loves. Also loves the fact that she can use as a lamp :)

My Son's nursery had a similar globe and he loved it and spendt long periods of time looking at it and asking about all the symbols and countries, and he often referred to it at home. He has recently turned 5 and we decided to get him one for christmas but found that the brand of globe his nursery had was almost £50 to buy. Much more than I wanted to spend. I was delighted when my google search brought this globe to my attention. The reviews seemed positive and £20 seemed much more reasonable. So I ordered it and it came quickly and well packaged.

My son was delighted when he opened it on Christmas morning (as was his 3 yo sister) and instantly wanted to plug it in. They both enjoy looking at it and they also use it as a nightlight at bedtime to look at their books. My son did accidentally blow the bulb on only the third night by knocking it off the shelf while getting a book. Thankfully it wasn't too expensive to replace it and he knows now to be much more careful with it. Overall it seems durable, educational, interesting and useful (when used as a nightlight too) and all for a low price. I'm very happy with it as are my children. Thank you ELC.

My 4 year old granddaughter loved this globe, it provides lots to talk about and is just right for her age. The only disappointment is that the bulb lasted just two days despite careful use.
