  • junk

    Aful product, cheap plastic balls, don't hold a glow at all, most are golf ball size or smaller and worst of all they have to be taped to the ceiling and the biggest "planet is too heavy and wont stay up. Needless to say they went in the trash. Worthless, don't buy these.

    • How accurate was the sizing? ridiculously small
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. junk plastic balls and fishing line, you have to scotch tape these to your ceiling!!!!
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? for plastic balls pretty cheesy
  • so so solar system

    The customer service for the smashed product was excellent and the box for the second shipment was bigger. The solar system was of fairly good quality, but gave no specifications for distance apart or even which planet was which.

    • How accurate was the sizing? Sizing was good--hard to tell which planet was which
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is fair, doesn't seem to glow in the dark very brightly
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? the sun was smashed in shipping and a replacement set was sent quickly

    I got this for my 18 year old autistic great grandson. Recently he has shown much interest in the solar system and has learned all of the planets by name and position. This is the perfect gift for him - he has it installed on his bedroon ceiling and is very proud of it! Thank you for carrying it in your inventory.

    • How accurate was the sizing? Perfect
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Better than I expected
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
  • Very Excited!

    I'm very excited to give this to my little brother for Christmas! I normally get him something more virtual, since he is a gamer, but I figured this year I'd give him something he can appreciate in a different aspect. It shipped incredibly fast. I was surprised how light the package is!

    • How accurate was the sizing? Correct.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Looks very good, but what would you expect from the Smithsonian?
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Near as I could tell.

    Not super easy to put up and don't really glow much but they are cool to have hanging in a kids room.

    it looks great, but set up is kind of ridiculous, and the plannets can crumble easily.

    We brought these as decorations because my son wanted a solar system theme in his room. The sizes were what we wanted and other than the sun they were pretty well made. Sun was oK. I used a sewing pin with a white head to make a moon. I did not use the hooks or "string" that came with the kit. The hooks because they were ugly / heavy and the string because it was hard to tie. I used cotton thread and hot glued the thread into the whole for the hooks (I made a big knot which I put in the hole with help of tweezers). Then, because they didn't weight anything I could use thumb tacks to hook them to ceiling. They look good.

Answer This Question

I looked at several different product but chose this one after reading the reviews. My deciding factor was that it has a sun and it is at least close to scale. Too bad about Pluto. I do wish it had more of a description. We will see if it meets my expectations. Elizabeth V. on Apr 7, 2015
