Play Shifu! Review of the Orboot Globe.

March 15, 2018

Have you played shifu?  If you haven’t, you are definitely missing out! Play Shifu has some amazing toy products, that your kids will absolutely adore.  We recently tested out their 10″ augmented reality smart globe.  This is most certainly not your typical, ordinary globe!  This globe comes to life with the use of a smart device, such as; an IOS, Kindle, or Android tablet/phone. The globe comes with a fun kids play passport, stamp, stickers, and guide, that make this toy feel all the more real.


I found the globe very easy to put together.  It screws into the base, and is ready to go within seconds!  To bring the globe to life (where the real magic happens!) you simply download the ‘Orboot: AR globe by playshifu’ app, in the app store. The app is very user friendly, even for younger children.  My children’s ages range from 4-10.  They all were able to follow and understand the directions given.

To start the learning fun, you simply scan the globes tag points, and it will pop up different live images for you to tap and select more information on.  Whether it be animals, monuments, cuisines, inventions, arts, culture, maps, climates, or more… there is something for everyone to learn about!


My kids thoroughly enjoy playing with Play Shifu’s Orboot Globe.  They love learning new things, and seeing it actually come to life!  As a mom, you really can’t help but fall in love yourself! With so much information and learning packed into it, it’s a win-win for all. If you’re interested in getting the Play Shifu’s Orboot Globe, you can purchase your very own, on Amazon

{Disclaimer: I was given the product to try out, in return for a review of my honest opinion.  All words are my own, in addition to my thoughts on it.}

Until next time…

    This is perfect for my 11 year old daughter. We homeschool and we struggle with finding new books to read because she reads so many. This is will be a great help.
