I love this globe. It's such a fun way to display our travel journeys without requiring the wall space for a map. The five red pins that come with the globe are a somewhat large for their purpose and can cover an entire state or small country. Instead we bought some decorative sewing needles that are small enough to pinpoint cities or certain areas of a state or country. Great product overall.

This was given as a wedding present for a couple who plans to travel a great deal. We all thought it's a cute and clever idea. I think the couple will use this to record their travels. As other reviewers have said, the included pins are too large (even for the larger sized globe), but small-headed map pins are easily found at craft stores. Unfortunately, there were missing components (decorative washers) that would hold the globe up on the metal stand.

    Great globe. Needs different pins (and more of them)

    Comments about UncommonGoods Cork Globe:

    The globe is a great idea for a traveler. I shopped around and this seemed to be the best quality, though the price was high IMHO. The only more affordable options elsewhere had lots of bad reviews. We like the globe a lot. The 5 big push pins were way too big to fit near each other even with international travel. 5 pins is a silly number to give, especially for this price. We bought a box of little pins elsewhere.

            The globe is a great idea & is adorable for decor. However, it is extremely overpriced for the size and quality. The "mini" was extremely miniature & the globe is literally taped together in the middle. From afar it will be a great addition to my sister's home, up close it looks pretty cheap. Sadly, disappointed.

                    I received the globe as a Christmas gift. I love the concept, but there are a couple of deficiencies that need improvement. Your large red pins are not good choices, except to use them as a "starter" for the insertion on smaller pins. I found that partially inserting your pins (not all the way..stopping just before they penetrate completely) works OK, permitting the insertion of map pins. If you go too far with your pins, the thinner map pins fall out. Also, you need to find a stable connection scheme for the two spheres so that it does not impede pin insertion.. I belong to a large travel group that would love to purchase these globes, and I would be happy to promote them...but not without those improvements.

                          Our son loves traveling. He is almost the 30 and has been fascinated with maps and globes since he was a kid. He's always the one who knows where to go, what roads to take, what to see and what to do. He loved the gift and when he got home, after Christmas, I was immediately sent a photo of it sitting on his desk, with pins in the places he has visited!

                          This was given as a wedding present for a couple who plans to travel a great deal. We all thought it's a cute and clever idea. I think the couple will use this to record their travels. As other reviewers have said, the included pins are too large (even for the larger sized globe), but small-headed map pins are easily found at craft stores. Unfortunately, there were missing components (decorative washers) that would hold the globe up on the metal stand.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          The packaging and shipping were complete and not damaged in any way. Unfortunately, there were missing components (decorative washers) that would hold the globe up on its metal stand. This is clearly a problem at the source. Originally, customer service expected us to repack and mail back the globe, but as this was a wedding gift, I am insistent that the bride and groom (who live in another state from me) should not be expected to be responsible for resolving this issue. The customer service rep I spoke with was very pleasant and is currently seeing what she can do to get the missing components for us.
