A little more about The Smart Globe:

Take learning to the next level with the Oregon Scientific 9-Inch Diameter Interactive SmartGlobe v2. This educational globe for kids ages 5 and up combines the latest 3D bar-code technology and the most advanced interactive options to provide an unforgettable experience. The included wireless Smart Pen can be used to access content from the globe and the included 29-page interactive book. You can easily keep up with the latest geographical information, current events, election results, and more simply by downloading updates through the Internet. This globe also features audio files that can be downloaded using the Smart Pen. Downloads are available in nine different languages, including three versions of English.

The globe is colorful with each country a different color.  The black base features easy-to-follow controls for playing educational games.  These games were very fun and I actually learned a lot! The settings on this globe can be targeted to fit your learning needs. Some of the 36 learning activities include country capitals, leaders, populations, currency, language, weather, history, national anthems, and more. The multi-player games accommodate up to four players and can make learning a family event.
