I disagree with some of the reviewers who are complaining about blurriness. It's a tiny circle shining light in a big square room. Unless your kid bunks under a low dome, of course it's going to be blurry in spots. On the bright side, half of the Star Wars galaxy map simply says "Unknown Regions," so you don't even have to look at that side of the room! Whether the other dome actually projects "Earth's sky" is up for debate. It just looks like a bunch of evenly spaced dots to me without any labels or supporting materials. I'd love to find out if there is actually any accuracy in the placement of those 'stars.' Well, I would, but it doesn't really matter since this product is now useless after just 3 nights.
Firstly, the 2 light bulbs and 2 screws that came with it were so tiny that they were almost lost in the packaging. The 4 pieces were wrapped so tight into a tiny taped bundle no more than 3/4" long and 1/4" wide. I had thought they were not included after my son tore open the packaging, but later found them across the room. It just looked like a tiny piece of plastic bag.
The first of those two bulbs burnt out the first night. And I mean burnt. It was totally black inside.Read more ›
I was nervous after reading some of the other reviews but we are totally happy with our purchase and have loved it.
The halogen burns out for 2 reasons .. one those little halogens get extremely hot and that's an enclosed unit. Secondly, any contaminents will cause it to overheat. Basically if you use bare hands and don't clean the bulb with alcohol after installation, its contaminated.
So, as far as the toy itself? My 9 year old son thinks its the coolest thing ever. It's about the quality you would expect from a $20 toy and its a map of the star wars galaxy. So I think its cool. Pain to put together as others have mentioned. But it is unique and something that lights up a kids room at nights ... kinda like walking around a city, gives them a reason to look up for a change.
So yeah if you buy it just go ahead and find some replacement LED christmas bulbs and use those instead and save yourself some hassle down the road.

Cheap product, room has to be pitch black (No windows at all) for it to work and your ceilings better only be about 5 feet tall.Published 1 month ago by MichJ
Really cool idea, but I had a feeling it wouldn't work as well I hoped. You can't see anything displayed on the walls unless you hold it really close to where you are looking. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Carmen Gniewek
