Children's globe, illuminated globe for children e.g. as a birthday present or for Easter

Learning through play is a term often heard, but it really is true. Children learn through play; social interaction, other children, testing boundaries, rules and so on. Children are curious by nature and want to know. For them, every day is a day of discovery. We adults provide stimuli, arouse their curiosity and pass on our knowledge. Children see the world through their own eyes. Simple shapes and colours create stories. Without pictures, it is difficult for children to imagine our planet. A globe can be touched, turned and viewed from all sides.

A globe is a valuable companion for children

Toys are important for children's development. The best toys are those that can be used in a variety of ways. On a globe, we can travel and explore our planet. "When will we finally get there?" is a phrase you probably won't hear.
Our globes fulfil age-specific needs. Younger children like the colourful depictions of animals, which attract their attention and arouse their curiosity. Would your child like to find out more details, such as longitude and latitude, sea depths?

You are sure to find the right globe in our selection "for older children".

Age recommendation for our children's globe models


Children's globes from 3 and 4 years

We recommend the KR 2562 and KS 2525 children's globes for ages 3 and up. These colourful children's globes are inexpensive but not cheap. The simplified map design does not overwhelm children, and the animal illustrations guarantee longer attention spans.


Children's globe from 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 years

From the age of 5 to 6 we recommend the Family Solid, KI 3010 and Family Silver 2.0
Children like the detailed illustrations on these globes. The accompanying sheet or booklet contains brief information on famous personalities, striking buildings or animals.


Children's globe / school globe from 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 years

We recommend the Parlamondo, DPA 2562, Gaia 25, Solid B or ND 2525 for ages 10 and up. Audio pen, double-image cartography or the illustrations of constellations make these globes interesting. They provide initial geographical knowledge and an idea of distances.


Children's globe / school globe 10 - 11 - 12 - 13 - 14 years

Here we particularly recommend our Solid R relief globe with double cartography. Here you can see the physical map image with deserts, rainforests and high mountains. When you switch on the light, the political country borders become visible. In addition, the globe has a tactile relief, which makes the globe very vivid. You can find more relief globes with a double map image here.
