Great Keepsake

I bought this gift for my boyfriend for our anniversary, to commemorate our travels. I bought a separate pin set so we could color-coordinate our individual travels and travels together. We had a great time putting the pins on together and remembering our trips. I recommend using pins with small round heads rather than push pins as the globe is small. This globe was one of the only cork globes I could find that delineated the states in the US, which i think makes it superior to others. I didn't love the plastic tape line in the middle holding the globe together but it's not noticeable from afar. Overall a great gift.

QuThis is perfect on my bookshelf. The small one is a great, unassuming size, but not so tiny that you can't put pins right next to each other. I really love it.

cute but cheap

The globe is cute and has even the smaller islands (fiji,samoa,ect). BUT the tape running through the globe makes it look VERY cheap. I do not think something at this price range should look like I printed out the world and tapped it to a sphere.

Super cute but smaller than you imagine

This was a gift for my husband to keep in his office to track his work travels. The problem is the big globe is really big and takes up a lot of space, so I had to get the small one. He problem with the small one is that the pushpins that come with this take up a lot of room on the globe. For example, when putting in a pin to mark his travels to Paris, the pin is so large it looked like he was marking all of Central Europe.

My world-traveling best friend loved this gift!

This globe looks perfect in my friend's living room. It is a great conversation starter for those who look closely, but also is subtle and attractive.

Great gift for a savvy traveler

Because only a few push pins come with the globe, I also purchased a set of 100 push pins. I bought a National Parks call calendar, tore out each scenic page, taped them together, and used this as the wrapping paper. The gift was a way to say "keep life's adventure going." It was a big hit! He remarked that he was excited to use the push pins bc he wanted to see what parts of the world his travels have overlooked. I guess it's one thing to know it, and another thing to see it... I suspect that this gift will result in more travel!

Great design and size for a desk. Could use some more pins especially for the avid traveler.

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

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.

Overpriced for Quality

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.
