Kids can explore the music of the world with the B. Global Glow Ball. This musical globe plays traditional sounds from all seven continents. Asia plays Bollywood tunes. Europe plays romantic French cafe music. North America plays Native American tunes and the blues. Kids can hear the Marimba played in South America and hear an African choir sing in Africa. Australia plays "Waltzing Matilda". And because Antarctica is the most isolated and least traveled place on Earth, kids will hear recorded sounds of wind, ice, and penguins that habitat the land.
The B. Global Glow Ball has various uses. You can use it as a soft nightlight as it glows through the night. Or leave it on your side table as it plays music for 20 minutes and glows. For younger kids, you can roll the globe around the floor. Older children can use the globe to identify the continents and get familiar with the globe.
This is a very basic learning tool, practical play toy, and beautifully designed globe to have around the house. The sound quality is good and not too loud to irritate sensitive ears.
The B. Global Glow Ball is for ages 8 months to 8 years. At least that's what the company says. This will appeal to toddlers and preschoolers as a very basic globe toy. Once kids start learning more about the world in preschool, they will be ready to move on from this.
Three AAA batteries are included for the in-store try-me features. It's recommended that you replace them before you play for best results.
With every purchase of this toy, Battat will donate 10 cents to the charity Free the Children. You can find more information on this charity at freethechildren.com.
