Educational Toys: The Shifu Orboot Globe


This post is sponsored by @playshifu but all opinions are my own!

I have to be honest, I skimp on buying my kids toys ! It really feels like they are over everything in 10 minutes and I end up wrangling pieces from every inch of my house ! I love when my they play outside with sticks and rocks like I did. Does that make me sound like the worst mom ever . However, I am totally intrigued by educational toys and screen time with a purpose!


Shifu Play is a company creating educational toys around a story! When they asked to send us this Augmented Reality Globe  I immediately said yes. It’s only $49 on Amazon! You can shop here. 

You download a free app to scan the globe and it takes you on adventures around the world! My kids don’t have an iPad so I had to give up my phone for this one. 

I was amazed at how well they played together scanning the stars on the globe to track the seven wonders of the world, learn history lessons, and learn about the geography of each country. Every lesson is based around adventures with a little boy named Shifu. 


The box includes a passport, stickers from every country, and a stamp to mark the places you’ve been! I love this toy! It’s the perfect Christmas gift for a curious learner! My kids ask to play it constantly! Especially my five year old. I feel like this toy is going to give her an advantage in school. Check out the reviews on their website and amazon !

What are your favorite educational toys for little learners ?!?
