One Globe Kids-All Friends is the most memorable way for children to experience the globe we share short of getting on an airplane themselves! It includes all current friends (real, fun kids in Haiti, The Netherlands, New York City, Israel and Burundi) and all future friends. New friends will simply appear for free in the app!
