Tawnee says, “…when we were given the opportunity to check out New Ravensburger XXL Children’s Globe 180-Piece Puzzleball we thought that would be great. Quite frankly, a globe for use in our homeschool was on my wish list so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to give this a try. I’ll admit, I was a little skeptical as to whether it would be usable after it was made but I have been pleasantly surprised by its functionality.” Read the rest of her review at Adventures in Homeschooling.

Melissa says, “The girls have been learning about geography this year. Honestly, because she’s only in 1st grade, Cuddle Bug doesn’t care much about it, but she does listen when we read our geography book. PB & J Girl really likes geography, and she loves to find the continents and countries that we discuss on her blow up globe. Combine this love of geography with her love of all puzzles, and the Puzzleball Globe is the perfect, fun educational toy for her!” Read the rest of her review at Mom’s Plans.
Lacey says, “Our family loves puzzles. Every year for Christmas there will be a puzzle under the Christmas tree. Actually, I prefer to leave the puzzle under the tree, all wrapped up, until the day after Christmas. And then, on that quiet day-after morning, there’s one present left to open. Perfect for the after Christmas crash, we can just hang around the kitchen table, eat holiday leftovers and work lazily on a puzzle together. The last wrapped gift is a puzzle – and we all know it – but no one knows what the subject of the puzzle will be.” […]
Tauna says: “We’ve been using the Ravensburger XXL Children’s Globe 180-Piece Puzzleball from Timberdoodle (you can buy it on it’s own or as a part of the third grade curriculum kit) and found it was a great fit for our older kids, ages 7 and almost 9. I LOVE that it forms a 3D globe that can be used in the school area or a kids’ room for a fun geography learning tool.” Read the rest of her review at Proverbial Homemaker.
Susan says, “True confession time: I AM the type of parent who will purchase something “educational” that is also fun, and give that as a birthday or Christmas present. This Puzzleball Globe is EXACTLY that type of item–something that will NOT disappoint if a child receives it as a gift–and I then sit back and smile at all the “sneaky learning” that takes place!” Read the rest of her review at Susan’s Spot.
Heather says, “Welcome to the Puzzleball Globe, a unique educational tool that feels so much like a toy, your kids are going to pull it out on their own and get to work.” Read the rest of her review at To Sow a Seed.
Suzanna says, “We were very pleased with the Puzzleball Globe and how well it went together. It would make a great hands-on addition to a geography program.” Check out the rest of her review at Wonder Filled Days.
Karla says, “Rebecca enjoys jigsaw puzzles so I knew she would be interested in the Puzzleball Globe, but I wasn’t sure if it would be something she could do on her own. My experience with 3-D puzzles has been that they can be somewhat complicated, so I was afraid she might be a little overwhelmed. I was prepared to help her with it. It turned out that I didn’t need to.” Read more at Roads to Everywhere.
