The product was ready use out of the box - came with batteries pre-installed as well as an A/C power adaptor; came with software, USB cable, and good directions for installing software, registering product, downloading updates, also came with 2 years of free updates. The directions and instructions for using the product were not very good at all. There should have been examples and explanations of the the learning activities and game use - especially for games up to four players. It is a true trial and error discovery process to figure out how to use the product and play the games. A little direction would have enabled and allowed us to focus on activities and games of interest versus discovering them half-hazardly. Outside of that the product and it capabilities seem to be above average to exceptional. Downloading the updates is slower than expected or anticipated and some the "facts" are incorrect or at least debatable. However, it is truly a very unique, high quality product that is capable of being an on-going learning tool and game due to its progressive age and learning capabilities as well as ability to update the product to reflect ever changing world events, news, and facts. I hope that the product will continue to prove itself and pass the test of time.

The smart globe is great for kids to learn more about their world. My son really enjoys it. He's too young though to see that much of the information on the globe is out dated. I was very disappointed in that. I downloaded what I thought would be current events to the pen/stylist but no new events were ever heard. I had great hopes of learning much with my son and I'm sure we will learn some things but I'll have to check to make sure it's the right information before my son speaks it as truth.

    I bought this globe for my 4 yr old and he loves it. Even my 22 month old enjoys it. The interactive stylus is great and the audio helps teach geography before your child can read.

          Comments about Oregon Scientific Interactive SmartGlobe:

          We purchased that globe for our 9 year old daughter as a Christmas present. She loved it, but then when we registered the pen, to download updates, the pen failed. It wouldn't work at all on the globe. I called in and returned it and purchased a new one, same thing happened again! I am a software engineer and I followed the steps correctly, and have all the system requirements.
          Many attempts with no success. Now my daughter is beyond disappointed, and I was charged twice for this globe. I know I will be reimbursed by Hayneedle, but with delay.
          For the price, this is an extremely poor merchandise from the Oregon Science Center.

                Will return and won't purchase it any more.
