Magic Adventure Globe
This ain’t no ordinary atlas! By using the stylus, children can tap on the 26cm interactive learning globe to explore countries and capitals, plus experience new places, languages, cultures, animals, geography, habitats and more with audio responses and videos.
With the 7cm integrated video screen, animations and live-action videos fully immerse children in the curriculum to provide a better understanding of the world, through more than 5 hours of high-quality BBC videos.
They can also play three interactive games called Around the World, Quiz Show and Where in the World to explore the globe, challenge a friend and solve mysteries.
This Cheerwing model fits neatly into the right niche. It’s got a reasonable price, it has protective rails for the rotors (useful for a 12-year-old pilot, who is going to crash sooner or later) and it has enough techy stuff to keep you 12 year old happy. It is controlled by a supplied hand controller. It also hooks up to a smartphone (iOS or Android) once the supplied app is loaded and running. The phone connects to the wireless network that the drone creates, to receive the video input from the onboard HD camera. Now the camera image is not great and the flying time is not that long around 5 minutes, but at the very low cost of this model, you can’t really complain. You can see one very similar in action here.
The watch itself supports two-way calling, SOS emergency calls via a SIM card (which you must supply) and also has a camera, and some games, an alarm clock, and a flashlight. It takes a little while to set up but it is a very powerful little package that your kid will enjoy and you will find useful.
