Pioneer Globe


About The Globe

The Pioneer is a kids globe that is exceptional for educational value and aesthetic appeal. The desk globe ball is 30 cm (12”) is ideal for home, school or office use and is one of our best-selling blue ocean globes.

The globe itself is part of the World Nation series from Replogle World Globes. The map shows up-to-date cartography by Kevin M Dzurny, and has clear political boundaries with over 4,000 place names. The raised relief feature reveals the world's main mountain ranges in a tactile way, whilst the gyromatic movement of the Pioneer allows the globe to be rotated on 2 axes - up and down as well as around the equator. The unique gyromatic design allows the globe to be positioned at any angle for ease of viewing. The base and graduated full meridian are made of sturdy metal with a gold painted finish.

This desktop globe is made using traditional techniques with recycled and recyclable materials. It comes fully assembled and complete with a booklet on how to use, enjoy and care for your globe.

Excellent - Just what my wife wanted

I bought a 'Planet Earth National Science' globe for my wife for her birthday. Her opinion was that it was far too complicated. I contacted Alex at Just Globes and he said that we could exchange it for another type. My wife on seeing the globes at their showroom chose this globe and it is just perfect for what she wants. The ability to move the globe in both vertical and horizontal directions as well as slightly larger than normal text size make it perfect for her.
Also the service received was second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone.

The top and bottom halves are not aligned correctly. This is sloppy manufacturing, but overall I'm pleased with the product. The gyromatic function, not found on many globes, is particularly useful. If there was a choice I would not have the raised relief, on this size of globe it's not effective. Review by Brian (Posted on 03/04/2018)

I received this globe as a Christmas present and it is perfect. The combination of physical cartography using raised relief and clear political cartography makes a useful as well as attractive item. I love the mount which makes all the surface easily viewable, and the excellent underwater relief.
