Here’s a rare indoor toy that’s likely to make kids excited to get outside. The Star Theater II home planetarium can be used inside a darkened room to project a vast panorama of stars on the walls and ceilings. It comes equipped with an audio CD to guide budding astronomers through the learning process as well as a hand held "meteor maker" which allows you to reenact meteors without waiting around for decades to see them. We found the scientific information helpful, accurate, and, best of all, approachable for even novice stargazers. The kit can also be brought outside to illuminate (rather than project) and serve as a map to the heavens. --Charlie Williams

Looking at the picture and description, this item looks almost identical to the National Geographic Star Planetarium that I bought at a science museum. Like all the other reviewers here, I regret my purchase.

A real planetarium projector is completely dark except for a few spots of light projected on the ceiling for the stars. This device is the opposite - it projects light all over the ceiling, with spots of darkness for the star. As you can imagine, that ruins the experience. For just a few cents more, they could have made the sphere dark with pinholes for the stars. At least this way, it would have made a cool nightlight.

The hand-held "meteor maker" is just a flashlight with a couple of filters. Unfortunately, the light is so dim compared to the projector itself, that you can't see the image it projects.

I wish I had examined the package more before purchasing it. I guess it just didn't occur to me that something designed by scientists would be so poorly made.

I bought the Star Theater as a gift for my son, as he has displayed an interest in the stars and planets.
The directions indicated that the Star Theater would work best in a small room with light colored walls. The truth of the matter is that the room would need to be spherical to get a decent display of the stars. In a square or rectangular room, the projected image is so distorted that it is virtually worthless! To top it off, the light bulb burned out after only a couple of minutes of use. This was the worst gift that I bought all year.
If you have an interest in the stars and planets, I would recommend that you spend your money on a trip to a real planetarium. I have also found a number of web sites with star maps and a lot of interesting information that were free.
This toy was definitely a total waste of money!

We purchased this for my son's birthday and were excited to encourage his love for space. Within 30 minutes he was in tears as we did not have the specialized screw driver required to install the batteries in the hand held light. Getting past this we got everything else working...waited until it was dark...put on the story CD and before it was finished playing the switch and light broke. The toy was useless and really dissapointed my son.

This planetarium is just a light bulb which reflects a black shadow with barely visible names on your ceiling. It does not glow in the dark and the light is so bright that you can't even use it for a night light. I have nothing positive to say about this, besides the educational CD that comes with it is good.

I only wish I had read the other reviews before buying this useless bit of junk for my 8 year old son's birthday.<br />
<br />
Having rushed out in excitement to buy the five batteries required (not supplied - and as AAA's seem to come only in packs of four this was not cheap) the first problem was trying in vain to open the battery compartment on the wand. The screw is so small you need a specialist screwdriver.<br />
<br />
Never mind - we did manage to put the batteries into the Star Theatre itself.... lights off and .....<br />
<br />
........ Surely we must have done something wrong? Some black blobs and blurred writing in a dark haze. Is that it? The only bright thing in the room was the light in the middle of the projector. Naively perhaps, we had expected to see something resembling stars (even if they were black instead of white).<br />
<br />
Do NOT buy this item unless you are ready for a huge disappointment.<br />

As if it weren't bad enough that my daughter was in bed with the flu for Christmas but to then open up a complete piece of garbage just made matters worse. She had been learning about the solar system in school and took on a huge interest. Saw the star theater and thought it would be a perfect gift. WRONG! You can't see anything! I held the ball about 4ft away from the ceiling and we could just about make out the words.
Uncle Milton you should be ashamed!
Don't bother in investing in the National Geographic Telescope NG7036 either. Another hunk of junk. Can't see anything.
Left in the dark.

I was looking for a star projector for my son's room and read the reviews on this one...decided not to buy it. I was out at a local store and saw one for $20 and decided to see for myself since I could easily take it back.

Like one reviewer said, it projects black spots, not light, star-like spots on the wall and ceiling...who thought that would be a good idea? Additionally, the projection of "stars" was blurry, as was the names of the constellations (not that I would want to see the names projected at all).

It was also made of a cheap plastic that would not last a week in my 3 1/2 year old's room.

I would go on, but then I would start to repeat the other reviews...don't even bother with this one!

I bought this for my daughters 6th birthday. I know, it may be kind of young, but she has always been interested in the stars. I thought it would be something educational while also using it as a night light. What a piece of crap! You couldn't even use it as a night light if you wanted! No sooner than I plugged it in and turned on the educational cd that comes along with it, the bulb burnt out! After about 3 minutes it cooled off and came back on again. Then 10 minutes later it got hot and burnt out again! I'm sorry, I don't have the patience for this, after her getting upset that the light kept burning out, she said she didn't want it any more. I'm taking it back tomorrow, and trading it in for the barbie styling head!
