Hi everyone 👋

So, my son is about to turn 6 in February. He is such a bright little boy for his age and I’m really not just saying that because he is my own. He’s currently obsessed with the 7 continents of the world and he can make them largest to smallest and give an interesting fact about each of them. He currently has the my world iposter which is absolutely amazing (I’ve even learned a few things from it myself 😂) I want to get him some toys for Christmas which he can learn from but basically all I can find online is things like children’s atlases etc. He has asked for a children’s globe but the ones I’ve seen seem quite babyish for him seen as though he is so advanced. If anyone can give me some ideas of things to get him. He knows which animals are native to which continents so maybe even somethings which may include animals of the world? I want to keep him on this track of wanting educational toys so any recommendations at all would be hugely appreciated. Thank you ❤️

My kids have a globe, it lights up and they love it. From somewhere like justglobes I think. Not babyish at all.

Are you looking to avoid books, or just endless atlases? Some great books on this list: mrbsemporium.com/shop/book-lists/books-discovering-rich-diverse-world/
