"Have you hugged our Earth or America today?" The soft pillow models of our planet and America are perfect for learning countries, capitals, oceans, rivers, lakes, and islands in a very hands-on way that is more fun than a textbook. The cotton shell of this 12" planet earth is labeled with more than 600 different locations and is accompanied with an information tag that includes statistics about the age of the earth (millions of years), its make-up, and even things you can do to protect the earth.
Over 400 locations are labeled on the polyester shell of America, which includes Hawaii and Alaska on the back of the pillow. An information sheet accompanies the U.S. shaped pillow which includes state abbreviations, state size, "Pledge of Allegiance," and much more. Take this in your car to play the 'license plate' game, find locations as you study about them or pass through them, or create your own games using these soft, huggable replicas. This is a geography study around which you can literally 'wrap your arms.'
