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.
The planets-and Pluto- are all in really fabulous colours and are very clearly the planets that they are designed to emulate. The labels are clear and large, with the planets not being so fragile that the our youngest (three years old) couldn't assist in putting them together. There was an informational pamphlet that explained the different planets and also the order that are around the sun. There are a TON of stars and everything glows for at least three hours after being exposed to light for about three minutes. The only bad thing that I have to say about this product is that the stars can be a bit hard to get off of the sheet...but there's seriously so many that the five or six that refused to lift off were not an issue.
I seriously suggest this product for young curious children, who also want their room to glow in the middle of the night.
