Hi-Tech Globalization

There has recently been a spate of new hi-tech toys that also play an educational role. One I came across recently, a new globe by the Gakken Toy Hobby company, is just the thing to internationalize your students. With the touch of a special pen, the globe tells you the name, capital and other information about any country in English. It also plays the national anthem and gives the time difference with Japan. The globe retails for ¥22,000.
