    Comments about PUZZLE BALL - THE EARTH:

    I first bought this as a gift, but end up changing my mind and kept it for myself. I love this puzzle, it is very easy and entertaining at the same time. I enjoyed it so much I will be buying more as christmas presents for family and friends. This is a great way to teach kids as well as adults about geography.

        It was happily received by my son and daughter-in-law, world travelers, who have not had the opportunity to assemble the globe yet, but are very much looking forward to doing so.

          This is a great present for

          a) geography buffs
          b) puzzle lovers
          c) both of the above

          I gave it to a loved one who falls into category C, and he really likes it. Also, the finished piece is so high-quality with the plastic pieces that fit together perfectly that it now looks like a real globe with that perfect stand.

              This puzzle was fun to do because the numbers on the back made it super easy. It is very satisfying to see the finished product displayed nicely and function as a regular globe. It is sturdy. The only sort of bad thing was the final pieces were hard to fit flush with the rest of the globe. We enjoyed this project, next time we will attempt to assemble it with out looking at the numbers.

                This was a great puzzle that educated with each piece and when you got stuck with the ocean pieces it cleverly helped you out! Perfect for the whole family to enjoy again and again!

                  This is an amazing puzzle. It immediately captivated my 10 year old and his 12 and 14 year old siblings (not to mention his parents). As hard or easy as you want since it is numbered on the back side.
