Old Classic Style Globe
Item came damaged. Return was handled immediately. No problems. Replacement came and was packaged properly and not damaged. Would recommend product. Son loved it.Read More
Interesting but not quality
This was an interesting item, but for the price, I expected something of better quality. The chess board is basically a sticker put on a board and the chess pieces are very inexpensive looking (cheesey).Read More
Not a good buy
The product I bought was defective. It didn't have the right parts to piece together and it was cheaply made.Read More
The globe arrived promptly and was well packaged. Some assembly required, but the instructional diagram was easy to follow. Vivid colors and good quality construction.Read More
My 7 year old son begged me for a chess set. He was super surprised to find it inside the globe. Easy to put together and built. I was very happy. Would be a nice gift for an adult too.Read More
Too Much Money For Printed Piece of Cardboard
I ordered this as a Christmas gift for my husband. He received the box when delivered so the element of surprise was lost as the box had item description on all sides. Okay, so wrap it anyway and put under tree. Christmas Day - the bottom part of the globe does not fit well with the bolt it sits on so it wobbles. There is no way to fix it ourselves. Wooden chess pieces are very small and lightweight. It is apparent this is a conversation piece only and not to be used for playing chess - can't anyway per the wobbling. Hubby, unaware how much it cost, says he loves it and to not return it. (I'm sure he just didn't want me upset Christmas Day). Nice to look at but WAY too much money for a round piece of printed cardboard : /Read More
