Beautiful and simple, fits in palm of hand. Very pretty gift that does not take up a lot of room.
My daughter is a teacher besides a passionate scientist. I am not sure whether the globe will be kept at home or go to school. It is decorative yet, very useful
Beauty with a purpose
The globe is beautiful and the gift recipient loves it however, the globe doesn't fit into the wood base. Is she supposed to remove the plastic ring in the wood base?
I hope this will be a hit in the Yankee Swap.

This is a very attractive design from good quality materials; however, I suspect that the globe shape (rather than the traditional tall cylinder) renders it less functional. It has been consistently over 75F, so we haven't seen it do anything yet; the markers remain crowded in the bottom. Somewhat anticlimactic for my son who has wanted one for at least a year, but maybe better luck in the fall? And possibly better outside if your home maintains a continuous climate.
looks nice but impossible to read temperature
It is really cool jut to look at. and a wonderful gift for my cool son!!!!!
