Educational Insights GeoSafari Motorized SolarSystem is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fun- initially..... Kids love the solar system and couldn't wait to build this and turned it on with great anticipation. They already know a lot about the solar system and their primary objective was to watch the planets rotate around the sun. Such a big disappointment that the motor does not work !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it Really enjoyed using it, my stubborn child who says planets are boring still enjoyed it. Found it useful for teaching about the solar system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great homeschooling tool This came just in time for the eclipse and it was a great teaching tool for out science lessons. My kids loved the constellations as well and we will get plenty of use out of it in the future. As its a permanent fixture on our shelf now I wish it was a bit sturdier and more aesthetically pleasing but otherwise it has worked great for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to introduce your kids to the solar system I recently purchased Educational Insights Geosafari Motorized Solar System to introduce my kids to what lies beyond our planet. Also, with the solar eclipse happening, I wanted to show them how our planets move in relation to one another. The manufacturer recommended age is 8-12, but it's never too early to introduce the basics to your children. Right now, we're focusing more on the names and order of the planets. As they get older, we'll get into more complex information. I loved that the model came with a 28-page guide, and included activities to help introduce the planets and explain the mythology behind some of the constellations. That's another thing, you can remove the top to the sun and put on a piece that turns any room into a mini planetarium! My kids LOVED this, and my son goes to sleep with it on in his room every night! The only downside to this model is that the planets do not spin as they rotate, and if you're not careful, they can fall out of the model quite easily. Still, it's easy to put the planets back in place, and for the price point, I would recommend this to anyone whose child has an interest in astronomy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomeness for kids and parents This is a great item. It engaged my 3 year old, my 6 year old and my husband and I. The booklet enclosed provided great learning lessons-perfect for this homeschooling mom. My 6 year old was able to assemble it with very minimal help and immediately recognized most the planets. My girls love to use it as nightlight with the constellations on their ceiling. It has opened the door for many educational conversations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging and Educational This was a great toy to use with my son. He is very interested in the planets and learning about how things work. This was also a good conversation starter to discuss the solar eclipse that is happening on 8/21. Great educational model of the planets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy and well made model This is a wonderful model of our solar system. My children (5,8,10) all love to watch it move around and read about the solar system in the booklet that comes along with the product. It also has a timer switch so it will shut off on its own after some time. The children also love that it comes with a dome to place on top of the sun that will shine constellations on the ceiling of a dark room. Wonderful and educational product.
