Solar System in My Room
Interplanetary Exploration, no rocket fuel required
Space, it's a big place. In fact, it's infinite. So it's no wonder that your child might think it's a little overwhelming to learn about the Solar system. How can you truly comprehend how large the sun is compared to this earth we live on? How far away is our nearest neighbor? How can Saturn balance all those rings? While we can explain these things in a book or a classroom, there's no better way to really understand than looking at a moving model!
Your child will have a blast watching the planets rotate on their accesses and in their orbits around the glowing sun. This set can be mounted to the ceiling with four included screws. No need to reach for the sky, the kit includes a remote. Your child will have a blast watch the twenty-nine inch in diameter solar system rotate on their command. Want more? Follow the included instructions to download an audio tour of our great solar system. While the learning capacity is great, this system can also be used as a nightlight. The light and motor will automatically turn off after twenty minutes, just enough time for your child to fall into dreams of intergalactic travel.
Whether you want your child to get a jump start when it comes to STEM skills or you'd just like to add a little educational whimsy to the decor of their room, this set up is the other-worldly detail you're looking for. Colorful and classic enough to make decor-minded adults happy, it's sure to immediately stir up the imaginations children. Okay, let's be honest, it stirs up the imagination of us adults as well! We sure have come along way from the glow-in-the-dark stick-on stars of our childhood!
