After 2 weeks of rough use by 2 toddlers, it hasn't lost any air. The two year old rolls on it like a pilates ball. When it's not used for educational purposes, it doubles as a beachball outside.
The map features and text are clear although a little is lost in the seams. The colors have a nice contrast. After closer inspection I see that one seam swallows up most of Egypt and Eastern Europe. In fact, Africa is missing an "I", Europe a couple letters.
I also couldn't find the key to topographical features. Perhaps this is a defective ball but I'm pleased enough with this durable beachball to let it go.
Exactly as represented, vibrant colors, holds air well. Countries are fairly well labeled and easy to distinguish against the deeply blue waters. Bought this inflatable globe for a children's playroom, and they seem to be enjoying it, as a reference tool and as a fun beachball type toy as well. About what you'd expect quality-wise for what it cost, but I have no complaints and would recommend it as an inexpensive globe for young kids just beginning to ask questions about our planet.
No matter how well I blow it up, it is mushy within an hour or so... great space saver if you are going to deflate after each use. Great color and size
