CSN Stores Product Review

Recently CSN Stores extended me the gracious review of one of their products valued at $35.  (Which I was positively glowing about!!) I stalked calmly looked through all the products and finally decided to get something WE all could use.

I settled on this Educational World Globe because I thought it would be a great and much needed asset for our homeschool "classroom".  Our globe arrived less than a week after I placed our order online and it was packed very sturdy and thoroughly, which to me is a big deal.

The World Globe is bigger than I anticipated and right away as Jet Pilot got it out of the box and gave it to me and the kids when we were getting our school on they were completely excited over it and wanted to know all kinds of geographical information about our world.  I am something of a geography buff (yes this is me tooting my own horn...but ask my husband-its just something I am good at...thank US NAVY for the geography knowledge!!)  so I was just as excited as the kids to be talking about geography.

Our globe sits on a nice plastic stand, the font is a decent size, not to big or to small and it is labelled with islands and waterways that I have not normally seen on globes.  It has nice little touches on it that are age appropriate for Bonnie to read and see; like an arrow on the equator that says "The Earth rotates this way".  The globe is also slightly raised to detail mountain ranges and this helps to probe deeper questions with my kids and wanting to know more about Earth, Colorado, Chile, etc..  And I love it when learning takes a fun turn!!  The attention to detail and fine craftsmanship that went into the construction of this globe is noticeable from the second it came out of the box.  I know that this Educational Globe will be a treasured piece not only as one of our homeschool education tools, but our home, for years to come!!


Disclosure: I received no monetary compensation for this review. I received products from CSN Stores for review but was under no under obligation from any person or company to post a positive review. All information on CSN Stores was obtained from literature sent to me or published online on their website.  All thoughts and opinions are 100% mine
