With its internal illumination, the globe functions in two modes. When the light is off, the globe displays a political map of Earth with clear country borders, bodies of water, and more. When the internal illumination is switched on, a different set of illustrations appears on the globe, including nocturnal animals. It also makes a great nightlight! More than 150 illustrations of animals, plants, landmarks, and cultural objects are printed on the globe in their geographically specific locations.
The globe is ten inches in diameter and made of durable acrylic that resists dents and scratches. The 32-page, full-color manual contains an exciting illustrated story, as well as explanations that invite you to discover interesting things on the globe.
Plugs into standard wall outlets and has an on-off switch on the cord.
Thames & Kosmos was founded in 2001 by a science museum director and her son, who saw the great need and demand for better science education materials — resources for parents and their children that are more engaging, more effective, more relevant, and more fun.
