Educational toys and items for children aged 5+ can often be a bit boring and lacking in imagination, meaning they play with it once and put it aside. However, this clever Smart Globe Myth from Oregon Scientific gives the next generation’s David Attenborough or any budding Astronomer something new to learn every time they look at it, or, in fact, listen to it. You see, this isn’t your average globe, this globe is, in fact, a teaching, storytelling, interactive, educational, night light.
By day, the Smart Globe Myth shows country names, oceans, capital cities and political boundaries and by night you can press a button to reveal an illuminated map of the stars and planets. The fun doesn’t end there, this is an interactive AR based product so you can bring the globe to life on your phone or tablet. It shows you the things you can’t see on the globe in front of you, so Landmarks, animals, weather facts and even dinosaurs pop out of the globe on to your screen as you hover over it. The dedicated AR app (available on apple and android) also has extra facts and fun to be had, so the little screen lovers in your household will be happy.
On top of all that, it has audio and can tell you 69 fascinating facts about the earth and the stories behind 12 of the 88 constellations it shows you at night. It can also read you 1 of the 10 classic fairytales available too, which should help your little ones drift off to sleep whilst staring at the stars.
The Smart globe Myth offers endless and timeless educational fun and is a perfect present for everyone over the age of 5.
