Product Description

Uncle Milton Industries 2055 Solar System In My Room 2055 Kids Games

From the Manufacturer

An orbiting Solar System right in your room. Now you can explore the wonders of the solar system right in your own room. Just look up at your ceiling and watch as all nine planets orbit around the light-up sun. Use the included light-pointer to locate each planet and make comets and meteors streak through the sky.

Customer Reviews

The light is very dim so you can't see the planets.
sahmom
After making giant holes in my son's ceiling to hang it up, we discovered that it makes a loud noise as it spins around.
PixJen
You also can't turn on the light without the planets orbit motor on.

Planets rotate on 2 tracks to give the illusion that the planets are all moving at different speeds (an effective illusion).

It would have been nice if the ring of Saturn were semi translucent plastic rather than cardboard.

Since Pluto has been downgraded from planetary status you can perhaps hang the Star Trek Enterprise orbiting the outer solar system, the Borg cube, or the Death Star (the geek potential is high with this...)

I purchased this for my 3 year old son's new Space-Themed room...He Loves it...It's Very cool looking...However...the construction is pretty flimsy, and It absolutely GOBBLES C batteries...so it will light up, but often will not turn...unless you're willing to change the batteries about every 3 days! Also, prepare to put pretty large holes in the ceiling for this product! For the price, it's OK for a three year old at bedtime...the "Moon in My Room", by Uncle Milton works much better...

Verified Purchase
This is really neat. It lights up and spins and all that good stuff. The "comet maker" is really only a tiny flashlight... and be prepared to put some pretty good size holes in your ceiling... but it is a great thing to watch and very educational when used with the soundtrack.

I bought this prodct for my son's nursery. I was so excited to receive it (I want him to be an astronaut when he grows up) I was pleased with putting it together and hanging it, would have been better if it fit over an existing light ceiling fixture. The worst part is that the electric motor in it is LOUD!!! You can't even hear the audio disc that came with it unless you turn it up VERY loud. Needless to say I was really bummed, but way too lazy to return it and get my money back. Probably why its only 30 bucks. You also can't turn on the light without the planets orbit motor on.

We got this for our 3 year-old son and it has helped with the bedtime battles. He is staying in bed watching his planets. We read the reviews before purchasing so were prepared for the noisy motor, and it really isn't loud enough to be distractive - both our kids have fallen asleep with it on. The main features I like are the glow of the sun - perfect for a night-light, the movement of the planets that entertain, and the 15 minute shut-off feature. My main gripe about the product is the battery power it takes. Three C batteries and those didn't even last a week! So this will be an expensive product to keep working. Overall I recommend this product.

The model was what I expected and compared to many other solar system models on Amazon this one is pretty good. The description of the product must be for an older model. Mine came with only 8 planets (no Pluto) and the batteries required are 3 AA for the model and 2 AAA for the remote control. All of them look closer to what they should than some other kits but keep in mind the balls are plastic and have a shrink wrap image over them that doesn't cover the whole sphere. The 8 planets vary in size and are somewhat in proportion even if they're not in a single scale. Mercury is the smallest (the size of a marble). Earth and Venus are roughly the same size and about 1" in diameter. Mars is sized between Mercury and Earth as would be expected. Now as you progress onto the gas giants the scale changes. If they were to the same scale as the inner planets Jupiter would have to be 12" in diameter which it's not. Jupiter is the biggest followed by Saturn (it's rings are bigger around than Jupiter). Neptune and Uranus are smaller than Saturn and about the same size as one another.

Assembly was easy with no tools required except for a philips head screw driver to put the batteries in (kids toys seem to require a screw to hold the battery compartment closed). Each planet has it's symbol marked on its south pole and has a specific anchor point on the rotating rings. The inner planets all rotate on one ring which moves faster than the other ring that the outer planets rotate on. The distance of each planet from the Sun are not to any kind of scale. They're simply out further than one another from Mercury to Neptune. As for mounting it on the ceiling ...

I love it, and my son does too. It is quite loud -- I could maybe replace the motor.... But he runs it for 20 minutes as he's falling asleep, and the noise level seems to be ok for him. The solar system shuts off after 20 minutes and the moon shuts off after 30 min, so it works well as a pre-bedtime thing. When I saw the photo on the box, I assumed it went over the room lamp, but it doesn't. You need to drill two holes in the ceiling to mount it (really one would do). Also, I recommend using the next size up drill bit -- 3/8". I bent the (cheap) toggle bolt trying to install.

flimsy. I bent wires to hold planets on, then glues other end of wire into base, otherwise, planets can fall off easily. Motor is so loud I wonder if I got a lemon, but someone else complained of this too. The moon is cool, but battery door came broken....planet decals torn. Overall quality less than usual for Costco....but looks really cool nontheless!
