While Google Maps may offer a globe mode, it’s really not the same as having a real, tactile globe to use to learn geography. The Orboot Earth combines the best of both worlds, giving you a tangible world to spin and a digital guide to what’s on the Earth, and right now, you can save 15% on it during our VIP Sale with the coupon VIP15.
The World At Your Fingertips
Rated 4.5/5 stars on Amazon, the Orboot starts with the globe itself. The 10″ polycarbonate construction is designed to be light but durable, perfect for kids to spin and handle as they learn. It also comes with a passport, stamps, country flags, and a learning guide to get started right out of the box. The combination of these features helps foster a conscious and curious little global citizen.
Painted on the globe are notable landmarks, species, and groups. It’s when you boot up an Android tablet or iPad, and use the AR capabilities, that the Orboot really stands out.
Knowledge At A Glance
The Orboot has more than 1,000 world facts and 400 highlights for kids to find by scanning it with a tablet. Using the Orboot Earth app, once they find a place of interest, an interactive article pops up. Kids can learn about the biodiversity of a place, how its cuisine has changed over time, about the cultures and practices of people around the world, monuments you’ll find in your digital travels, and even notable inventions.
It’s a great way to help kids learn about geography and world cultures in a dynamic way, while developing a love of STEM skills. And since kids can seek out what they want to know, it teaches them to be inquisitive.
