The Scout+ Illuminated is a classic tabletop globe for kids with a Blue ocean, colorful countries and landmasses, and the current geopolitical boundaries. Sturdy blue base with blue numbered meridian and time dial, this is a great educational tool for children of all ages. The Blue ocean map features ocean floor topography and identification- a feature not found on most kids' globes. In addition, this globe also comes with a bonus reference map. The Scout illuminated globe has an internal LED light with an on/off switch. The illumination enhances many cartographic features and makes a great backlight for any room. Also included is an 81/2x11 inch laminated World/USA Notebook map.
