Rated 3 out of 5 by rusticlemon not that great
Not happy the sun is NOT all the way round like all the other planets, they do NOT glow in the dark at all.
Rated 3 out of 5 by iluvfenton cute
This set is a lot smaller than I was expecting. The sun is only about 7" round. It is a cute set, but I will wait till after Christmas to give it as a gift.

My sister has been looking all over around SW Ohio for a solar system and couldn't find one. We even look at 2 science attaction. They all had solar system without the sun plus they weren't sized right to each other. they were very excited to see this one.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Woman of Many Roles Educational and Fun!
I received this Glow in the Dark Solar System to review from Educational insights. My son is huge to science type stuff and lately he has been all about the plants! He's also very afraid of the dark. So having a glow in dark solar system is a win all around for him! The thing I liked most that it features proportional Sun and planets. Not only is this solar system really easy to put together, makes learning fun, but it's very sturdy and 8 year old boy proof! He messes with it constantly!
Rated 5 out of 5 by m_oachs Great Educational Tool!
These planets and the Sun are a great educational tool for schools and at the home. I love that the sun glows in the dark and it is really helpful in teaching about the planets and the solar system!
Rated 5 out of 5 by NonNon Ceiling Solar System
I gave it as a gift to my young grandson who is very interested in the planets. His parents assembled it easily and it is on his bedroom ceiling. He loves it! He especially likes that the planet Pluto is still included. That is important to him! He looks forward to having the mobile in his room each night. I am very glad I got it for him!
Rated 4 out of 5 by MeetPenny.com From bedroom to planetarium
I was provided with this product in exchange for a review but opinions are my own. My children love this solar system and how it glows! The planets are made very well and I loved how we could hang them however we wanted (straight line, group, etc.). At first we were confused which planet was which since some look very similar, but the symbols on the bottom of each planet allowed us to match them to the paper diagram. I didn't expect the extra educational info on the planets, so that was a nice surprise.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Homeschooling Mom Very durable & high quality
I put this in my son's bedroom. He loves that it glows in the dark! We've had a similar solar system in the past, but it was made of very flimsy plastic, barely glowed at all, and didn't come with any string or fishing line to hang it. This one came with all the supplies, was quick and easy to hang, plus it comes with a paper booklet about the planets. My only con is the planet Earth looks almost solid white instead of the green/blue expected. I attribute this to the cloud/atmosphere around Earth, plus they wanted to leave enough yellowish areas showing on each planet so they would glow. This is very minor in my opinion. I received this solar system in exchange for giving an honest review of the product.
