A globe with a difference, showing Earth by day and space by night – 2 fun globes in 1!
This 22cm revolving globe clearly shows the earth by day, inlcuding political boundaries, natural features such as lakes, oceans and rivers, plus all capital and major cities. The illuminated night globe shows key stars and constellations with their Latin and common names. An advanced light sensor automatically turns on the LED illumination whenever the room darkens, magically transforming the earth globe into a fascinating map of the stars. Plot world domination by day and intergalactic missions by night!
Eight year olds like more challenging construction sets, and are starting to get seriously interested in science. Anything involving potential explosions or high speed makes a good present. They can also start doing cleverer magic and love doing tricks. And anything they can throw or shoot at someone else is also very popular.
