  • A Hit and Miss Experience
    Reviewed by DetailzGuy - 7 juin 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] OOB, you get the colorful and detailed globe, a sticker book to capture "travel dates" and locations that your kiddo visits, a passport in which to keep track of places visited, an airplane stamper to stamp the passport, an Orbooter's guide, and a thank-you note from shifu's developers. Apple app store install was easy… walk through the optional login with email to get monthly progress reports -- the email ties your kiddo’s progress and profile to the email address, which can't be changed later. Again, you can continue as a guest. Create a profile name (which you can't change later) and enter your kiddo’s grade, which you can edit later -- pre-K through 12. You can add another profile if you want. The app asks you to solve a math problem to verify that you're of age. The initial download (the "core", animals, monuments, inventions, cultures, maps, cuisines, mysteries, and oko park) is 769 mb. The app prompts you to ensure that you have enough storage space on your device and a strong web connection. As the app downloads, it presents interesting facts to keep your kiddo entertained. The app needs camera access, asks you for it, and once it gets it, asks you to verify that the app works by locating and scanning a famous landmark on the provided globe. Afterward, the app asks you to locate stars on the globe to learn more about the location. AR brings certain aspects of the country to life. My son absolutely loves the app, the globe, and all the features it offers. He realizes that he’s learning while “playing”, but he doesn’t mind it. The main bone I had to pick with the Orboot (understanding that I can't imagine the coding or storage that would be necessary to do this), while the app does a good job at hitting the most well-known countries, monuments, and related information, the app/globe doesn't account for all countries, even if, at a basic level, to show kiddos where lesser-known countries (even large ones) are... missing an opportunity to really engage kiddo’s and teach them things to which they might not otherwise be exposed. One thing that I learned when traveling abroad is just how little people in the U.S. know about our geographical world. Apps and tools like shifu can really help kids (and adults, alike, here). Another issue is the app struggles with picking up the stars/markers on the globe. Your kiddo has to hold the tablet almost perfectly still to get the app to recognize the markers and begin the associated AR experience. Worth Buying?: I’m on the fence. On its own, the app is okay… but has a lot of maturing to do. The games are fun. The information is interesting, but it’s limited. Also, the way the app interacts with the globe is hit and miss. It’s likely a three-to-four star experience. The globe itself is less than meh and, without the app, serves little to no purpose. It’s a two-star for what little it really offers. To put things in perspective, my 9-year-old son played with the Orboot Earth twice and, while initially excited, lost interest pretty quickly. Overall, I’d have to give the Orboot Earth a three-star, meh, rating.

  • Fun for my 7 year old!
    Reviewed by Lease - 20 mai 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My 7 year old absolutely love to learn. She's always asking more questions and wanting to learn more. This PlayShifu Orboot Earth globe has made learning even more fun for her. She especially likes to take the quizzes about what she's learned while exploring the globe. You will need to download the app for this. I think one of the cutest things is the fact that it has a passport. So she can write in there every country she's visited. My daughter plays with this pretty much more than every other toy she's owned. I would absolutely recommend.

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very interesting way to get kids involved into fun way to learn. Discover fun facts and learn about other countries and animals. App help kids interact and makes it more interesting. Feels like real adventure around the world. Perfect tool for home schooling and additional activities with little ones. After journey you can take quiz to check how much kids remembered. Passport and stamp can give feel of real trip. Fun way to play ams learn. Wish the globe was a little more detailed for older kids but definitely great for younger ones.

  • Very entertaining and educational
    Reviewed by Lolo - 21 mai 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My son loved it he is 8 years old and enjoys learning about everything all over the world. His favorite thing to look up is places with their monument. He already knows lot of thing about Paris he learns about the Eiffel tour and about the animals that lives in the area.it came with a passport and a stamp. Before you can use it you have to download the app. Then create an account . Once you did you will scan an area by pointing the phone and find a star on the globe it will then tell you about that place depending of your settings. You can set it up to learn about nature or monuments. Very entertaining and educational globe.
