For £80 I was expecting something with a bit of weight to it. I was expecting it to be made from two plastic hemispheres of a decent thickness and weight. This globe weighs next to nothing and appears to be made from cardboard sectors. There are twelve in each hemisphere and the joins are fairly obvious. There are also creases in the cardboard in places formed during the joining process. The whole globe is then coved in a polythene film which I was about to peel off, thinking it was just a protective transport film, before I realised it must be part of the structure. I’m not sure if is applied to protect the printed cardboard from being worn out, by handling or being scratched by the limbs of the plastic support, or if the film actually is involved in holding the whole globe together.
The depiction of the stars and constellations is satisfactory, but the construction is very disappointing.
Final verdict - not worth the money.
