When I asked my son if it was okay with him to send it back to Amazon, he didn't mind at all. And this is a boy who is CRAZY about Space and Planets...
I personally LOVE Learning Resources company, but this product did not meet our usual expectations. I am sending it back....
I bought these for my son's room and they have been a huge hit! They have been hanging from his ceiling for almost 2 months now and have not deflated at all. We love that they show an accurate representation of size for each planet. They would be great for any space-loving child or any early elementary classroom!
My only complaint is that the video on the listing implied that this item came with easy-hanging hook and strong, but that is not the case. I ended up using balloon ribbon and thumb tacks to hang these from the ceiling.
However, don't be fooled by the description that says the planets are proportionally sized. The size range for the planets is 8" to 22" in diameter while the Sun is 36". In reality, if the Sun were 36", then Jupiter should be about 3.5" and the Earth should be about 1/2". Obviously, it wouldn't be very practical to use the proportional sizes unless the Sun was ten feet or more in diameter. And that wouldn't be very practical either.
Showing distance relationships isn't very practical either. The Solar System is BIG. With a 36" diameter Sun, the Earth's orbit would be about 300 feet away from the Sun. Neptune's orbit would be about 9000 feet away (and Neptune would be about 2" in diameter).
