      I am always amazed at the fun we have with the products under the smithsonian name brand. These planets are no exception, they are really cool when they get a good charge and glow brightly. Adds a fun, cool effect to the room. Teach your kids about the solar system.

      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.

      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.

      The solar system is a great learning tool for children, my grandson identified planet earth and the sun immediately. The planets are amazing to watch at night.

      I purchased these as a gift for my 13 year old sister. She really liked those Glow in the Dark stars you can buy and I thought this would be a great addition. She loved them, they glow for a while after the lights are turned off and she was able to be creative by either placing them in 'order' or how ever she wanted. Great and fun product!

      I thought the solar system would include Pluto. It was in our solar system when I went to school.

    • Let the Planets Surround You
      Verified Purchase

      Purchased as a gift for grandchildren. They literally jumped for joy when they first saw the planets arrive in the box. Then, when dad installed them on the ceiling of their room, they were on "cloud nine". This added decoration in their room helps them feel like they are sleeping outside among the stars and the planets...and can see the together in the sky. It's given my son the opportunity to explain more about our "small home", the earth, and how important it is to take care of it in these days where so many are in a "throw away society". He's been able to reinforce to our young 4, 6 and 8 year old grand-children that the earth is a "jewel" in the heavens and as such, we are precious, and made special among all the other creations. They are learning to do a better job of caring for their room, the house and even more responsible to Grandpa and me. It's been a gift we wish we had when our children were growing up.

    • Great Looking, but Not Glowing As Much as I'd Like
      Verified Purchase

      The planets look great, and the sun is a bonus, but I was hoping for some super-glowing nighttime decorations. Instead, the planets glow fairly weakly or not at all, unless you shine a flashlight directly at each one before turning out the lights.

      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!

      Very nice looking solar systems set. Bought this for my pre-teen son when he was studying the solar system and is a very nice set which we hung on his ceiling in his bedroom. Wish it was a little bigger but still very nice. Would recommend.

      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.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Why did you choose this product?"

      • A:

        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.

      • A:

        difficult to buy for teenage boys and this was my best option!

      • A:

        matches bedding and glows in the dark
