The size of the globe is pretty nice but due to packaging it’s a bit of a cylinder shape and not a sphere. The cushion in some areas got flattened out. Overall though the quality of the actual product is awesome and my kids are going to enjoy it.
Got this for my 18mo old, she likes hugging and throwing it. For the grownups it's a nice-looking, educational, all-ages toy that looks like it will last a long time, and I love that it's machine wash- and dry-able. In terms of geopolitical accuracy one of the random things I look for on maps and globes is the division of Sudan and South Sudan (the latter gained independence from the former in 2011) so I can say this globe seems at least as accurate as 2011. Of course, this is on top of all the environmentally-conscious materials and practices the company uses. All in all, a great value, I'm very happy!
