The Intelliglobe Deluxe engages young minds by means of technology, which has become so pervasive in their daily lives. A wireless device called an Intellipen uses an infrared scanner to "read" microscopic symbols on the Intelliglobe. One merely touches the globe with the pen in order to play games, explore, and discover amazing, educational and updatable facts about the world. The multilingual globe actually speaks English, Spanish, German and French and is accompanied by an informative 48 page booklet, which can also be activated by the pen. The included 48-page World Discovery Book features maps, world flags, landmarks, animals, dinosaurs, foods, explorers, moon maps, sky maps, and more!
This visually-attractive, 12" diameter globe is a true educational tool, disguised as a toy. With the many facts and figures they will learn while enjoying the Intelliglobe, your Geography George or Georgette will become the last one standing at the Geography Bee.
The Intelliglobe™ uses an infrared scanner to "read" microscopic symbols on the globe and World Discovery Book. Touch the wireless Intellipen™ to the globe or book to play games, explore, and discover amazing educational facts about the world. The Intelliglobe™ is the most advanced globe featuring thousands of facts in 4 different languages: English, Spanish, French & German. Information for the Intelliglobe™ can be updated through the manufacturer website.

We received our new Intelliglobe a few days ago and we love it. It is an excellent teaching and fun globe. I will be buying another one for my nephews. Thank you Maps N Globes for your fine recommendation and service. (Posted on 1/14/2014)

Great information on it. My 8 year old loves this! If you have a child around 8/9 years old who is interested in geography I would recommend. (Posted on 12/10/2013)

We bought the Intelliglobe for our two kids and they love it. Some games are easy enough for the kids to play, and some of the other games are even challenging enough for us. The topics of interest are well varied; it's fun to hear the local music and national anthems of all the different countries. So far it has proven to be both very fun and very educational.

Batteries must be replaced by adults only. Properly dispose of used batteries. See battery\manufacturer for disposal recommendations. Your Intellipen™ uses 2 AAA replaceable (UM-4 or LR03) batteries. Please check batteries if pen is not functioning correctly. If batteries are low, a double beep plays and the LED starts blinking.
1- Open battery door located on Intellipen™ with small flat-head or Phillips screwdriver.
2- Install new batteries according to +/- polarity. If batteries are not installed properly, the device will not function.
3- Replace battery door; secure with small screw.
The design on the + (positive) end of rechargeable battery is slightly different shape from that of a standard battery, and the end may not make contact with battery terminals. This varies by battery manufacturer.
Rechargeable batteries supply less voltage when fully charged than a standard battery does when new. Because of this, the product will complain about low batteries even when rechargeable batteries are fully charged. However, the product will continue to function even after notifying you that batteries are low.
There are a number of possible reasons your toy may have stopped working.
Trying NEW non-rechargeable batteries is the quickest fix.
Note: Please make sure you are trying new batteries. Once found around your home will have power levels that are not the same and make the product not work correctly.
Note: Make sure that the batteries are installed the correct way. Intellipen™ has a picture inside the battery compartment showing which way the batteries need to be installed.
Sometimes it helps to clean the battery compartment with a dry cotton swab or cloth. Rub the gold contacts inside the battery compartment to release any dust or film. You can also use an eraser to 'erase' and clean the contacts. Once you have cleaned the contacts, please make sure to install new non-rechargeable batteries before turning your unit on.

Our earth globes have a special coating designed to protect the earth globe ball and enhance its appearance. Household dust can be removed with a dry cloth, though you may wish occasionally to use a slightly dampened cloth to remove fingerprints or smudges. Do not use industrial or even household cleaners that contain alcohol or any solvent. Minimize exposure to direct sunlight to preserve the rich colors of your globe map.
Your Intellipen™ should be checked regularly for damage to avoid the danger of an electric shock.
Do not use it if it's damaged.
Do not attempt to dismantle any part of the pen, and only use a soft, dry cloth for cleaning.
Do not get Intelliglobe™ or any of its parts wet, and be sure that your hands and the tip of the Intellipen™ are clean before touching the globe surface; otherwise, the Intellipen™ may fail to read information from the Globe.
It’s called a time dial and is used to compare time around the world.
Globes with raised relief better emphasize the mountainous areas of the world. They are there so that you can see and feel the mountains although their actual height on the globe does not have any relationship to the true relative heights of the mountain ranges.
Replogle has a policy of updating a map every time it’s printed. Although the names or boundaries of countries can change due to wars or other political upheavals, most changes are simple name changes that are relatively easy to make. Our policy is that when the U.S. State Department — along with representatives (usually the embassies of the governments involved), recognizes the changes as being a fact, we implement the changes into our system.
Many world globes are made to tilt at an angle of 23 degrees to match the actual tilt of the earth. Incidentally, it is this tilting of the earth, relative to the sun as it orbits around it, which causes the seasons to change and give us more daylight hours at certain times of the year.
Because a world globe is round with no beginning or end, there are two imaginary reference lines from which all distances and locations are determined on a world globe; these are the equator and prime meridian.
Runs east and west around the exact middle of the world globe.
