Giant EarthBall Inquiries

WHY INFLATABLE WORLD GLOBES?

Why choose inflatable world globes? The EarthBall makes for such a versatile gift and showpiece. All orbis inflatable globes offer portability, and even our Giant EarthBalls, with their enormous size, allow for economical shipping to any location. You can easily move them through normal-sized doorways for indoor display. For instance, a 16-foot diameter globe easily fits through a 3-foot wide door when deflated. In our shop, we also have electric inflaters/deflaters available to make assembly a breeze! Also, you can permanently install our EarthBalls in lobbies and entrances, or anywhere your heart desires. Check out our giant EarthBall display options page for more information on the options for making an EarthBall a permanent fixture in your space.

PHOTO-REALISTIC INFLATABLE GLOBES

Orbis world globes are visually authentic and modeled after the famous NASA “Blue Marble” imagery. We at Orbis are the original pioneers of the genuine first generation of world globes to display our planet as it appears from outer space, complete with cloudforms! 

SPHERICAL INFLATABLE GLOBES

Orbis’ big, beautiful, spherical globes inflate to be perfectly round and 100% wrinkle-free. First-time viewers typically assume Orbis globes to be made of rigid material and are quite surprised to learn otherwise. Even more, we have the option to have our large globes lit from within (more on that below) – now, that’s a show-stopper!

LIGHTWEIGHT INFLATABLE GLOBES 

All of our globes can deflate down to a small, lightweight package for shipping or transport, and all but the biggest globes can be shipped by common carriers. In fact, they are so light that It is not uncommon for our globes to be carried by only a few children in parades and marches!

MULTIPLE DISPLAY OPTIONS

Want your EarthBall to be internally illuminated, glowing bright from within? We can do that! In fact, there are many different ways to show off your giant EarthBall. Suspend your globe from the ceiling or proudly display your EarthBall on a floor pedestal, the choice is yours. Want to carry your EarthBall at a special event, such as a parade or festival? We offer multi-person carrying devices for this very purpose! See our giant EarthBall display options page for information on all of the many ways you can show off your EarthBall.
