Brainstorm welcomes Tim Peake home

Published on: 17th June 2016

To celebrate the astronaut’s return, Brainstorm has sent the spaceman a gift to remember his time on the International Space Station.

brainstorm480Tim Peake was well known throughout his time aboard the ISS for sending home images of the Earth at night. To create a souvenir of that time, Brainstorm has given him the gift of its 2-in-1 Globe Earth by Day Earth by Night. The ordinary globe transforms in the dark to show the view of all the countries of the world illuminated at night, as viewed from space.

Debra Tiffany, marketing manager at Brainstorm, commented: “Not many people have enjoyed the view that Tim has been privileged to see every night during his stay on the ISS. We hope our gift will act as a reminder of that view for him.”

The 2-in-1 Globe Earth by Day Earth by Night is just one of several space toys within the Brainstorm range. As well as being engaging for children, each is educational and provides fun and accurate facts about space.
