The Atlantis 12 inch Replogle Globe is a very special globe. Not only does it have raised relief so you can feel the mountain ranges as you run your hand over the ball, but it also has indented relief. Indented relief is where depressions in the globes surface show where and how deep the ocean floor is, this is the only globe which does this.
The Atlantis is a truly physical globe as the land areas are shown in true-to-life colour, showing mountains, deserts, forests and grasslands. The Oceans are also shown in great detail specifically the undersea physical features and currents.
Another feature, which makes the Atlantis special, is its gyro-matic mounting with numbered full-meridian. This allows the globe to swivel up or down, allowing you to position any place to the top of the globe, this means you do not have to look under the globe to see the Southern hemisphere.
As with all Replogle globes this globe is constructed to the highest quality using the finest components. It is completely up to date and extremely detailed, showing over 4000 place names.
If you are interested in seeing the world as it truly is there is no better globe.

WORLD SCRATCH MAP - TRAVEL EDITION
Following the enormous success of The Scratch Map, we now bring you the Travel Edition. This miniature map is still as cool as its predecessor but cuter in every way. It makes the best present for any globetrotter as the map (in its sturdy tube) fits into your rucksack without taking up too much valuable room.
The idea behind Scratch Map Travel Edition is that you can take it with you as you journey round the globe and scratch off where you've been on route - all you do is scratch off the gold top foil layer of the place you have visited to reveal a brand new and wonderful world underneath.
Everyone intends to keep a log or a diary when they are voyaging but in reality you generally just forget, can't be bothered or get writers block. The Scratch Map Travel Edition is the perfect way to keep a tally of where you've been, plus, flip the Scratch Map Travel Edition over and you have even more glorious things to fill in, map out and stick on. Amongst other things, the reverse side of the Scratch Map Travel Edition has a plain white map to allow you the opportunity to plot your route. You can also paste an image of yourself in the 'before' box and then 'after'. The perfect way to assess the tanning progression!
The Travel Edition Scratch Map also has some top tips on it. For example, did you know that Bulgarians shake their heads from side to side to mean 'yes' and nod up and down to say 'no'? Did you know that cutting down a cactus in America carries a twenty five year prison sentence? Perhaps think twice about bringing home a prickly present for someone. One of the other quirks the map has is sections where you can jot down the music you listened to, the best friend you made and the top 10 highlights. In short, the Scratch Map Travel Edition is brilliant.
