I love that we are learning together to know where countries and seas are while we can play with it rolling it around and even seat on it! I like the fact that the rubber is covered with cloth.
Luz the doer
Santa Fe, NM
Santa gave this gift to my 7-year-old and 4-year-old sons and my 5-year-old nephew. They were all excited to get out the bicycle pump and blow it up. The markers perform well on the fabric, except the blue one. Well, it's to be expected that, if your child wants to color the entire ocean, he's going to be out of luck with the skinny marker in the set. Make sure you have a backup of your own.
Jen is Superfresh
fairly durable material, but somehow got a leak (how is that possible with a 5 yr old boy?), proving once and for all that the Earth is flat.
