This Orboot was everything I hoped it would be—an upgraded version of the globe I knew and loved as a child. What’s impressive is that it is an interactive STEM toy that encourages learning through augmented reality.
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.
