I took this from a science classroom lesson plan. It did not include Pluto. But with these numbers, Pluto did not fit in the room anyway. I hung it up in a random spot in the next room over. I thought that was funny.
The item itself works, especially for the price. The artwork on the planets isn't great, but for the price, I feel like I got what I paid for.
Took about 45 minutes of actual hanging time to do four planets, if I tried harder could have shaved some time. I can't imagine the hanging system being much better with customizable heights.
And the claim that the planet color schemes are not identified in the instructions is completely false. It is on the very first page, under the pictures of all the planets. It even says "The colors indicated below will help you find the corresponding glow in the dark planet". But really, even if the color schemes weren't listed, it takes about 30 seconds to figure out which is which with a little deductive reasoning, no "research" required. Earth is green and blue, Saturn has rings, Jupiter is the biggest without rings, Mars is the red one, Pluto is the smallest, Mercury the second smallest, Venus is the smallest of planets left, Uranus is solid color without variation, and Neptune is last. What's hard about that? Ugh.
And all the fuss about the sun seems ridiculous. Why would the sun be in a glow in the dark set? Do you see the sun at night? Where is the moon? Where are all of the moons? Using the ceiling light as the sun makes sense, for those of whom it makes any difference to.
Now, if you want a durable toy, which this should not be considered, or a strong educational tool, then this set might not be for you. But if you want an awesome room accessory and a happy kid, this will work.
I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because it at least came with everything you need to hang them, including star shaped tacks. It also said it also came with “230 Glowing adhesive stars, comets, and asteroids” (which for some reason I was thinking they would be the little plastic ones that you stick to your walls/ceiling) so FYI, it’s a bunch of really tiny glow in the dark stickers (see pic). I was going to return it but unfortunately I really needed this in order to complete my son’s surprise bedroom makeover for his birthday, and the package had already been delayed for several days.
Overall I would definitely recommend this set. It isn't top of the line but definitely worth the price. I was a bit disappointed that a sun wasn't included but we're just making it a craft project. We'll be making our own this weekend.

1. Missing the Sun- which is the "star" of the solar system (forgive the pun).
2. Glow is rather week- and everythig loooks green. The pictures in the description are not accurate.
For the price it is good. I would recommend it.
The colours and painting are not very detailed. Neptune has awful detail. Jupiter does include the red spot. They look nice though once they are on the ceiling. As for glowing, they do glow but not very bright. The picture I have posted d is with our ceiling light on all evening.
The sun is not included. Only the planets.
All in all I would recommend for hanging on the ceiling.
