While on the Learning Resources website looking for new toys/games for my 4 year old daughter, this one caught her eye immediately. Once we got it home, it quickly became a favorite- even for my husband & me! It is brilliantly designed, made of high quality materials & even comes with cards as an expansion tool. What began as a lesson in magnetic poles, moved into discussion about magnetic fields, magnetization, demagnetization & beyond. Needless to say, my daughter is learning about things well beyond her years, all thanks to this toy. We couldn't be more thrilled!
This wonderful inflatable version of the solar system is a great way to decorate a classroom, enhance a child's playroom or use as a series of great beachballs around the pool. The set includes all planets ( including the recently demoted Pluto) and the sun, and ranges from 36" to 8" in diameter. This is a wonderful way to introduce young children to astronomy by giving them something they can touch and play with. Organizing by size or position in the solar system or just playing a game of catch in the pool is a painless way of developing an interest in science for little astronauts. Great fun at a good price!
