It's a big world out there, but it's never too early to start learning about American geography, the rest of the globe, and beyond! Do you know a child that would get a kick out of these cushy balls?

I love this. You can squeeze it, use it as a pillow and as a learning tool. What more can you ask for?

I've heard of these before, but never seen them. Could do without the moon. Nice to see that it is at least filled with product from the U.S.

Why can't you just make ALL of it in the US. Cute, but No thanks.

This is really cool, not to mention educational and fun!! Super cute, especially for a space/science fanatic such as me! I also totally agree with Robyn-there should be a whole solar system available, to complete the set! Super awesome and would totally buy-would even just be nice as a throw pillow too! The price is fine~Almost all made in the USA!! (Is that as close as we can get? Come on! :)(*^_^*)

600 written items small enought to make your kids go blind trying to read them, surprised it's not printed inchinese...

Cute but expensive. and yet another item that is made or has components of it made in China. It would be great if Uncommon Goods could start a policy of keeping manufacturing of these unique items here in the states, or at least in places that adhere to labor laws and environmental policies. It seems incongruous to have these "fun" nicely designed items manuafactured in location that makes me suspect of their content and their impact on the earth.
