Please email or phone for educational discounts.

Discounts do not apply to globes which are already discounted.
  • Brightly coloured globes with blue oceans are best for young children
  • Blank globes are a great learning tool because they can be drawn on
  • A political globe is a great educational tool because the countries are in different colours
  • A physical globe shows the mountains, deserts, forested areas
  • Raised relief on a globe means that there is an indication as to where the mountains are
  • ALL globes are current. This applies to antique looking globes as well.
  • some have half meridians (the bracket that attaches the orb - the ball - to the stand)
  • some have full meridians which mean the orbs can be tilted to any angle
ALL the globes on this page are in stock.

Because of the many variations in monitors and browsers, thecolourof a globe may appear different on different monitors. We cannot guarantee that what you see accurately portrays the colourof the globe.

Most of our globes are either:
1. two plastic halves joined at the equator, with the map printed on plastic film, or
2. printed on paper gores or segments.

The globes mentioned in the second point above are hand-made. This means that the globes may have little idiosyncracies in terms of aligment that make each globe unique.
