Tip for installation - tie the string to the planet first in a knot, then tie a loop knot at the other end. Take that and slip it around the nail of the tack and tighten. The star head will keep the knot from sliding off the nail and it will be secure to hold the planets up. If you actually try to tie the fish line around/across the star head it will take hours and will make for a frustrating installation...
It's also fun in that our son enjoys showing it to our guests and telling them about the planets. However, I rate the set as 4 out of 5 stars in the fun category simply because it is more like decoration. This set hangs from the ceiling, so you never play with it or even touch it once it is hung. You simply enjoy looking at it and talking about it.
The downside of this set is that the stars are really small stickers so you will want to purchase some larger glow-in-the-dark stars. Also it is a pain to hang this set since you have to tie fishing line to each of the planets and then use tack-like objects to connect them to the ceiling. But once you have it all set up your child will probably be pleased.
Downside is they're a pain to hang up -- tying fishing line around a thumbtack 9 times is a challenge. We also taped the heavier planets because the tacks look like they'll come out.
But still, overall, this beats the 2D mobile type competitors hands down -- I'd recommend it but set aside an hour or two to hang them up.
Since then, we've added to the planets. It includes pluto so we added four more dwarf planets: Ceres, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris; and we added a comet, space shuttle and asteroid belt.
Pros: Develops an interest in the Solar System. Everything you need to install is included. Durable, Educational, and Fun.
Cons: The stickers don't stick well. Pluto could be confusing. It's the only dwarf planet included, they should either take it out or add the other dwarf planets. The colors are a little off. Saturn is not that green, and neptune is more of a blue purple than a pink purple. There is no sun included, so you'll have to get creative with arranging the planets. We put a yellow circle on the wall, but I've heard of others arranging the planets around a ceiling light.
