I was a bit disapointed in this toy. The planets and the stars are not as brite as I'd hoped they'd beRead More
I love this item. I purchased for my grandson for him and I to start learning the stars. It is a wonderful starter! it has the brightest bulb that I have seen in any of these and the visual planet side is very clear for whats there. I would give this again as a gift.Read More
I was very disappointed in this product. You cannot see any planets together at the same time. I though one of the views would be the stars and constellations but it doesn't even give you that. I would not recommend this productRead More
I haven't seen it with my own eyes. That said, I got this as a gift for my God son. He loves it. He said it's really cool. Maybe I'll get one myself. :)Read More
The individual pictures are fantastic, but the stars projection does not look like constellations at all. I thought it would resemble a night sky..really just looks like white dots spinning around. The projector does have to be rather close to the ceiling for the pictures to be clear, like on top of the dresser or even a chest of drawers. All that said, my 7 year old son absolutely loves it.Read More
We incorrectly believed that the planets would revolve around the room, only the stars revolve. The planets have little tiny disks that have to be inserted (and can easily be lost) and the dial has to be turned each time a new planet is to be viewed. The clarity is decent and my 9 year old girl loves to watch the stars revolving when lights are out. There is no outlet for this product - only batteries unfortunately, so make sure to turn off the product before retiring - otherwise the battery bill will be high! My daughter would have had more satisfaction had the planets revolved like the stars and she could lie in bed and try to identify them.Read More
This projector is super-cool. I bought it for my 8 and 5 year old sons to use in their room and they love it. One side makes stars that spin all over their room. They keep the stars on while they fall asleep. They say "it's like being in space". The other side projects giant pictures onto any wall. All of the pictures are really realistic and colorful. It has kept my boys entertained for a few days now. I would recommend this for any child that is into space.Read More
Great price; I purchased this for my 11 year old grandson; my two nine year old grandsons. They all said the same thing! This is awesome!!!!!!!! They all loved it! It is getting more difficult to find a gift that gets this kind of reaction from them! They all were excited and one even told me that this was the best Christmas gift he ever got!!! And he has a lot of exceptionally nice things....like a3D DS and Wii...etc.Read More
For the price it would be a good gift for little kids, or used as a night light. If you're expecting to actually simulate the stars, spend the extra money and get a nicer machine.Read More
Bought this item for my sons 4 yr old child and he absolutely loves it, shines it on his bedroom ceiling at night before he goes to sleep and even has friends over to view. Went over so well for my 4 yr old grandson that I ordered a second one for my daughters 3 yr old son as a Christmas present. Grand kids love themRead More
