Top Customer Reviews
* Sufficient paint. We did though run out of some colors -- don't expect to use the same color on several planets.
* Easy to snap the planets together -- and pull them apart again if needed. Kids did the painting and snapping together themselves, once I showed them how to align the pieces correctly (so the two halves of the hole for the hangar pieces line up).
* Plenty of fishing line for hanging, though you won't think so when you first see it.
* Assembly is easy enough, though still enough challenge for an older kid to enjoy. I did have to map it all out on the table before starting to string them on the support pieces, since the planets are close enough in size that it's not easy to tell them apart.
* I was surprised to see that the unpainted planets were a dark blue plastic -- most paint colors covered it OK, though needing a bit more than they would otherwise for coverage, but getting a light color meant first "priming" it with white.
* Barely enough glow paint, and it doesn't glow much. It does if you shine a bright light directly on it for a few minutes, and then make the room really dark. But since it's a mobile, most kids' bedrooms aren't going to have a bright light *under* it. And having one over it simply makes the top of the planets glow -- which you can't see unless you're really tall.
Another minor problem I ran into is that the assembly instructions showing where on each hangar to hang each planet are only in centimeters. I couldn't find a ruler anywhere in my house with metric on it so I had to pull out the calculator and convert to inches. I won't deduct any stars for that, since I'd rather the US went metric anyway, and I have no good excuse for not having a dual-system ruler in the house. But be forewarned.
Liked, it and would buy it again.
1. Assemble and hang first, then paint (so your planets won't look like two halves stuck together). We hung ours in the shower to paint for easy cleanup and had a great time painting them as they turned.
2. Prior to assembly, paint the hanging rack to match the color of your ceiling. The model looks beautiful except for the rack, which is blue, and stands out--if only they made it white to begin with!
3. Apply glow in the dark paint direct from the tubes, in thick lines--if you spread it with a brush, the thin layer of glow paint will only glow faintly
