    It was fun to build and play with. My nephew loved it!

    This was a huge hit with our 4 year old grandson, who is really into space and NASA. All he wanted to do was work on the project!

    My daughter loved this more than the paleontologist kit. It was so much fun and now we've got a model of the solar system as an art piece.
