Discover your love of geography on the Columbus Pathfinder Interactive Globe! The desktop globe features a simple, easy to read blue ocean political map with over 3,500 placenames. The countries on the landmasses are colored in different soft pastel shades that complement the ocean hue of the map's political design.
Included with the world globe is the Columbus Audio/Video pen with 3 different categories.The first category gives general information about countries including surface area, capitals, and population size, along with a few other geographical fun facts. The second category contains samples of every country's national anthem. The third category is a quiz, which asks you to find places on the map with the pen based on the questions it asks. Download the Columbus Globes Video Pen App to use the video feature on your cell phone. This interactive and geographically rich globe is engaging for both kids and adults. Have fun while you cultivate your passion for the world!
The 13-inch sphere stands 17 inches tall on its stylish stand and features a time dial at the North Pole. The world globe was manufactured in Germany by Columbus’ skilled craftspeople, who hand applied the map to the sphere’s surface, ensuring its lasting quality.
The pen is fun for getting basic information, but the quiz mode only has a few questions and we could not get the video/picture app to work at all. But the globe is high quality and well worth price, without the pen.
