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.
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!
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 />
Never mind - we did manage to put the batteries into the Star Theatre itself.... lights off and .....<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 />
Do NOT buy this item unless you are ready for a huge disappointment.<br />
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.
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!
