Today I bring you a review and giveaway for the Planet Mobile 3D Solar System by Educational Toys Planet
This mobile is designed for ages 8 and up. The entire project was a great learning experience for my kids. The instructions not only walk you through the “building” of the solar system but also teaches you about each planet’s composition, placement, and other characteristics while you are constructing the model. The strengths of this project lie in the educational aspect of learning about the solar system.
A couple items to note – I found it easiest to actually have plastic model glue on hand to glue the pieces together as we went along. Prior to using the glue – the pieces kept slipping apart. So we put the project away for that night and resumed tonight armed with glue. That made the process rather frustration proof at that point. I also chose to use black thread instead of the plastic string that was in the box. That substitution was simply a personal preference.
So far – as you can see in our photo – we did not hang the comets on it. We have them because we will be moving the mobile between the two kids rooms (so they don’t fight over it) and one child wants comets – one doesn’t. Surprised? Not me.
Also, because this is temporarily hung in neutral territory (front hallway), it was not hung entirely straight – but that is just a very temporary home. We will hang it in Anthony’s room first for a month – then Sephora’s. Because some of the planets are relatively very tiny – they are hard to see in this photo. There are nine planets in this mobile: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Earth, Venus, Mercury, Mars and Pluto.
So what do you think? Would you like your own 3D Solar System? Click to purchase your own Planet Mobile 3D Solar System – Just in time for Christmas. I don’t know about you but I would much rather have my kids working or playing with educational toys rather than some toys that do not stimulate creativity and imagination.
Educational Toys Planet is a great website that allows you to choose a toy based on your child’s age, interests etc… This toy came from the Planet Category. This category includes telescopes, planetary toys, rocket information etc…
