My rising third grader, Johnny, was instantly attracted to this educational toy.

Johnny worked at this on his own until he was about two thirds of the way done with the globe.

Building the world, once piece at a time

As it started to come together, my rising second grader Lily got pretty interested in what was going on! Johnny was kind enough to let Lily help him finish the globe.

LOVE this Puzzleball Globe as a way for kids to explore the world.

My brother-sister team worked together on the tricky final pieces of the globe.

Building the Puzzleball Globe

I created a fun, highly imperfect time lapse of the building process. The kids take apart and rebuild this globe all the time! So far we have all the pieces. I’m hoping that lasts!

This globe may be a puzzle, but the Puzzleball Globe is still strong enough to withstand quite a bit of play!
