Item broken won’t turn on very disappointing for a Christmas day main gift
Ideal for learning in a fun way
My grandson had learned the names of the planets but couldn't envisage how they 'fit' around us. This shows him how and helps him understand how and why we have day and night, as well as spring and summer.
Great for any child who loves space!
My nearly 6 year old son loves his solar system - he has it on every night before bed and then when he goes to sleep. Such a great idea. Only downside is the wobbly planets however not sure what cab be done to make them stronger. Definitely worth the money for the use its getting. My 7 year old daughter has also shown as interest so we are enjoying it as a family.
The planets do move around the sun at various rates with Mercury, Venus and Earth revolving quicker than Jupiter, Saturn Uranus and Neptune
