Globes of the Earth...

In an age where Google Earth and MapQuest make it seem as though the earth’s landmasses and oceans are a click away, traditional globes may seem quaint. Yet spinning a globe fuels flights of imagination, conjures up memories, and provides a very real perspective on the size and relative positioning of countries, continents, and oceans. Replogle Globes, the country’s premiere globe manufacturer, offers three superb globes that enchant and delight: The Explorer Globe; the classic World Globe with an antique finish; and the Orion Illuminated Globe that lights up when touched and features a black ocean.
