Every household needs a globe, especially one as detailed and versatile as this, that includes geography in fascinating relief as well as national and political boundaries (visible when the globe is unlit), calibrated meridian, time dial, raised equator, and sturdy no-tip base. Switch on the soft interior light to reveal Earth's geography, including mountains, rivers, and underwater ocean topography. Makes a fun night-light for the whole family.

Comments about HearthSong Orion Relief Globe:
As noted in other reviews, the base is plastic. In our case, it easily fractured. However, I called Hearthsong and the salesperson arranged for a replacement base at no charge. That was very nice and also unexpected.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me High-end Shopper
Maps are of good quality. However, I was very disappointed to find that the stand and support pieces were plastic. This product will not stand up to daily use by children which is the reason that I bought it in the first place.

Too good to be true!

My grandson loved his globe, but as soon as he began using it, the plastic support immediately snapped and we are at a loss how to repair it. We loved the way the earth is shown on the globe.

A beautiful globe with the option to light up. Used it to teach my daughter about the location of different countries during the olympics. Also, works well for a night light.
