About Puzzleball Globes
Puzzles can be educational in so many ways because they stretch your child's brain and improve the way his mind solves problems. While he's solving a puzzle, he's really teaching his brain to work in new ways. As your child solves a geography puzzle, he is mentally drilling himself with physical facts, such as what country goes next to the one he has just completed. Subconsciously, he is making a number of associations as he searches for the next piece.
Assemble in Three Different Ways
Flat puzzles of spherical items are easier to assemble, but what if you could hone your geographical skills on something more appropriate, more true-to-life? Now you can with Puzzleball Globes. Suitable for beginners as well as for a refresher for both your pre-teens and older children, Puzzleball Globes can be assembled in three different ways. Use the small number located on each of the curved, non-image sides of the puzzle piece, or for more of a challenge use a world map to assemble the globe. Finally, when you think you are ready for the expert level, try assembling the Puzzleball Globe without looking at the map or numbers.
Perfectly-Crafted, Curved Puzzle Pieces Allow for an Exact Fit
Each Puzzleball Globe comes with beautiful, vibrantly-colored, and perfectly-crafted curved puzzle pieces that allow for an exact fit and are easily assembled with no glue required! A stand is included to display your work of art, but you will have so much fun putting the globe together over and over that you shouldn't be surprised if the stand gets little use!

”The puzzle pieces are thick plastic – not cardboard! They are very durable and will last through never ending putting together and taking apart of the puzzle.”Read the Review

”It’s a fun little globe to look at. Not as detailed geographically as larger globes, but it features animals of the world in appropriate locales.”Read the Review
We took this puzzle ball with us for a fun thing for grandkids to do while visiting in Kansas. (They are homeschooled students) It was a hit with ages 7 to 13. I have to admit I also enjoyed this globe at age 67. From the beginning with puzzle piece one the journey begins into building the entire globe (fascinating to our grandchildren). The added stand to mount the globe made the completed project come to life. The grandkids also enjoyed the breakdown of puzzle pieces so next one could build it. Very well made and looking forward to lots of globe building.
Our learner enjoys this puzzle but they did notice that the equator isn’t marked.
It stays together well once you assemble it and is easy to see all the labels and landforms.
Fun way to build a globe.
I was hoping my kids (mainly my third grader) would be able to build this together. They definitely needed my help, but it was really fun! The globe stays together pretty well too!
