Now getting down to the story. My 6 year old got bored of it within an hour of interaction. She used to spend hours pondering over the 100 rupee worth India map I had with me! She learnt States, capitals and major cities by looking at that map itself. I wanted an extension for her learning experience and thought this could be of help to make her discover the globe itself!
App integration is also not appreciable and many places it was not able to detect it's own pictorials, like that of the seahorse.
Augmented reality is an interesting addition, but it needs to be integrated properly to capture the interest of kids. Data is not detailed. All countries, major States are not covered. Country borderlines, vegetation, climate, transportation patterns could be included to make it more interesting and a longer past-time for kids. You got limited categories like flags, animals, cuisine, etc. That too, is not thorough.
Although the quality of the globe is ok, I feel the rate is still high. It doesn't match up to the expectation of keeping my kid busy through her summer holidays (or even the weekend!) with oodles of knowledge.
Augmented reality was patchy, useful in places, but Google Earth would have given me more info! Shifu needs to do more. I, for one, am not a satisfied customer.
My suggestion to would-be buyers... if your kid is just beginning to learn (maybe 4+ years) and not exposed to other visual media, go for it.. otherwise you may be kinda disappointed in the long run.
This is the best gift for kids. This'll surely help them to develop their brain. N they'll end up learning something important when playing. Every parents should buy this Glob for kids.
Along with this, each kid gets a passport of their own, a stamp to update once they explore each place, and a booklet with flag stickers and a few boarding passes - all these to incite the kids imagination as they pretend to embark on a journey to the unknown and go exploring, these little touches makes this product a must buy for you & your kid, a gift to another.
I was looking for an educational toy for my nephew and stumbled upon Orboot. What got me hooked are the tons of features for kids to explore (plus they earn coins which my nephew thinks is awesome)!
You can go over any area of the globe and learn about animals, culture, food, stories, maps and locations. It really is an incredible learning tool that helps children learn about a region’s geography and more, albeit in an interesting, modern way!
The passport (included) is my personal favorite part because my nephew can journal what he learned, and stamp his passport, ...just like he would have done if he was physically traveling to that part of the world! (He will end up doing that sooner than I know…I am certain.)
The app is easy to navigate and I look forward to discovering more teaching aids from PlayShifu for my brood of nephews and nieces.
Information is ok till 6-7 years, more detail and further link to more relevant link should be more help. Actual picture are also will also be an added bonus.
Also when u match the star for learning about things present in some particular area, it tells about just one thing, eg. In India, it tells only about one animal, barah singha , no other animal's information is there, although it says u can fetch all info about that particular area... If u come to Indian food only idli Dosa is mentioned...
Moreover no 3D highlights could be found.
So I didn't find the toy worth the price... Returned it.

!!!but our province of Newfoundland wasn’t even on the globe! Too bad !
There are 6 categories to explore: Animals, monuments, cuisines, inventions, maps and cultures. It really is a dynamic toy; very educational in a really fun way!
My son was confident using the globe and app to explore on his own and we love using it together! It really develops a sense of awe and wonder about the World which is wonderful to see! I feel that with the Orboot globe, I can help build his knowledge of the World in a fun, visual way!
The app is jam packed with information and exciting things to learn about! The quiz and mysteries sections are a great way to reinforce the learning!
You also get a passport, stamp and sticker book to keep track of your travels. It really is a hands on experience, highly recommended!
I and my children would highly recommend this globe as a helpful useful tool to help support children's learning of the world and important landmarks.
We downloaded the app on an amazon tablet as the ipad mini we also have didn't have enough power to run the program.
Age Recommendation: 4+
Function: We found the product easy to set up, all we had to do was open the box and download the app. A big positive was not having to add any batteries and then having to replace them regularly. This meant as long as the tablet was charged the product was always ready to go, which is what you want it to do. Its very engaging and exciting with lots to learn and do, we especially loved the quizzes as it meant children weren’t just passively using the product, they were being challenged and asked questions about what they had learnt. I also love the booklet it comes with as it provides a simple guide with simple steps and pictures to follow.
Design: The design is simple, colourful, bright and its full of surprises. It looks like a regular globe, initially I thought the globe should have additional features and buttons etc however, now having used the product for a few weeks in my own classroom and across my entire phase ( 3 classes) and during EYFS (Preschool) Hub meetings I have changed my mind. Having a simple design means we can use it like a regular globe without the app. It also means we don’t have to charge the product, replace any batteries, worry something will break or constantly have to show children what each button or feature does. It’s less likely to get damaged or broken meaning its long wearing which is needed for children. The passport and stickers also helps children identify names and flags of countries.
App: The app had an easy to use interface, it was easy to download and just go. Children were also able to quickly learn how to use the product and the app together. The age recommendation is accurate as the classes I used it with were ages 4-5. I liked that the children didn’t have to read the information but it was read to them, this makes the product appeal to different abilities and needs. Those who can read are able to but it also supports learners who cannot read. Children found the 3-D images amazing and were in complete awe, they thought it was magic! I liked how you had to enter name/age which I think meant it tailored it to the age range and even ability range.
It was exciting for children to complete different quests and be awarded coins and jewels, the app meant I could have personalised users for all the children in the class meaning each child had a personalised learning experience to their own needs and abilities.
Curriculum specific: I found that the globe itself and its features and functions fit in perfectly with the U.K EYFS curriculum, and the new curriculum which will be implemented across all schools in England, Wales and Scotland in September 2020. It promotes S.T.E.M from a very young age, it links into ICT, communities, the world, history, all of which are key parts of the EYFS curriculum in the U.K. as the importance of S.T.E.M is developing across all school ages I feel this product will not only work in EYFS classrooms (preschool) but also all primary classrooms too.
Home or schools it’s a must buy!
So easy and intuitive that our little one immediately lead the adventure... is fascinating to watch his excitement discovering all the animals and stamp his “new” passport! Orboot is an amazing interactive learning tool.
This educational kit is very much recommended for anyone trying to get their kid know more about the world.
