solar model making kit
The instructions are easy to follow. This is a great learning tool. It also comes with a chart full of great facts. My son had fun coloring all the planets and helping assemble. It includes glow on the dark paint which he loves and it's fun to look at night.

Missing half the pieces!
I was very disappointed with this product. It was literally missing almost all the pieces and paint. The only thing in the box was the plastic planets and the bars for the hanger and that was it. When I tried to find a number there was not one. It gave me an extra digit or it was an over seas number . The box does have a different language on it. Anyhow could not get a number and ended up taking it back to the store. I spent the same amount of money buying it all separately and our project turned out better using the foam balls and acrylic paint for $0.50 a bottle at Walmart and mixing colors together to make our own custom planets . The planets in the kit were plastic and cheap and looked like the paint would not have worked on them and the paint looked cheap. The whole kit looked cheap. I will never buy a kit again for a solar system project.

Great science project

My 8 year old is very into planets. He was very excited to build this model. He worked with my husband and did need some support, but was able to do most of the building and painting himself. The directions are very straight forward and easy to follow. We wished there were two paint brushes included since there were two paint sets, but that wasn't a big deal. My husband did use his own fishing line as the line included was a bit stiff. The end product looks great and my son is very proud of his model.

What a Beautiful 3-D Model of our Solar System!

Greetings, I am a Walmart Sparks Reviewer and I am doing a review on the 3-Dimensional, Glow-In-The Dark, Solar System Model Making Kit.

Wow! This kit is amazing, and I love it! I had such a joy creating a model of our solar system. How cool! All of the necessary tools are included: the sun, the planets, paint, strings and the hanging module. Also, included is a giant poster size science chart of the actual solar system. I would definitely suggest that this chart be laminated for display. I also love that each of the planets are identical to the solar system. Let me also suggest that before you start painting, to use some gloves, and gather some old newspapers so you would be able to spread each planet out so it can dry.

I also love that the instructions are fairly easy to read, and the drawing illustrations are large enough to give you a close-up viewing on how to put everything together. Another suggestion I would like to make and that is to keep the instructions, because they contain a lot of Fun Facts about the solar system. It would be great to have that part laminated or pasted on astro-bright colored paper for sharing. If the Fun Fact wording is too small, then you can increase the size on a copier machine.

Now, after the completion of the product, I just loved the way all of the detailed parts of the sun and planets glowed in the dark. It looks just like outer space. Beautiful 3-D colored effects! How fascinating!

There is nothing that I dislike about the 3-Dimensional, Glow-In-The Dark, Solar System Model Making Kit. It's a great replica of our real solar system, and I had so much fun putting it together! I love it!

Detailed model solar system kit!

This model solar system kit was out-of-this-world! It has everything needed to paint, assemble and hang your very own mini solar system. It is a lot of work and a little time-consuming for younger kids so I would definitely recommend it for 10 and older. My eight-year-old absolutely loved it, but just had to work carefully for a longer. Of time to really make each planet look like it should.

Great product!

Overall, I am really happy with the 3-dimensional Glow-in-the-dark solar system model kit. This was much larger than I envisioned but is really great! It was easier than I thought to assemble it, which made it great for my 8-year old! I think 8 years old is a great minimum age for this kit because a child much younger than that might have some difficulty and need more help with it than an older child would. It wasn't the easiest thing to paint all of the pieces, so that seemed to take the most time. The kit comes with instructions, which were very helpful. The kit includes planets that snap together, a frame and string for hanging, various paints, a paint brush, and a bonus poster with solar system facts. I love the bonus poster – it is filled with lots of fun facts! I like that the display can be hung up for viewing pretty easily. The kit seems to be great quality, and even after painted and assembled, it seems like it will hold up well over time. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great quality solar system kit that you can assemble and paint yourself!

Fun and informative kit!

This is such a cool project for kids to do. My kids were all able to participate in putting this solar system together. They loved painting it and adding the glow paint. They were excited to finish it and get hung in their bedroom. My kids were introduced into astronomy at an early age that they love everything about it. They are fascinated to learn more about our solar system and this project does just that. They also loved the poster that they have now hung on the wall. It is very informative and has a beautiful picture of the planets. It must have taken about an hour and a half to finish the whole thing since you have to let the paint dry before putting it all together. Overall, it was a fun project to do. It kept my kids busy and away from their electronic devices and/or TV for a good while.

Great solar system

We put this solar system together in just over one hour. It now hangs from the ceiling in the kiddos bedroom. It certainly has sparked a large interest in learning about the planets.

Solar System Model

My daughter and nephew loves planets and stars. It was fun for them to put it together and paint the planets, pretty easy to set to put together they did it all by themselves with no problem plus the fact it was a lot of fun and bonding time for them!

Fun and Educational Project

My husband started this project and then my daughter joined in to help out. They are currently still in the painting stage in which my daughter has fewer patients than my husband. It seems to be a really cool and educational project. Looking forward to the completed solar system.

Be prepared with lots of patience for this project

This sets comes with everything needed to make a neat glow in the dark solar system. However, it takes a long process to put this set together. First the fun part, painting and decorating your planets and sun. This part was fun for my daughter and she enjoyed the creativity of it. The paint dried fairly fast so we were able to begin to work on putting this set together. That is where it became frustrating. The pieces are hard to get to line up perfectly and click together. If we got a planet clicked together in the wrong way it was very difficult to get it back apart. There is little plastic pieces that you thread the nylon thread through and knot it. Those plastic pieces then get snapped inside of your planet so it can be hung. Once we got all the planets clicked together the next challenge was to thread the thread onto the small plastic hooks. This accomplished you then hook the hooks onto the poles. This part really needs 2 adults as it takes some time and patience to get all of your planets at the proper spacing to make this whole solar system balance and not lean and tip. The last difficult step that we had a hard time with was threading the sun through the middle and having the thread come through the top to hang the whole solar system from. It was definitely a lesson in patience. This is a must need an adult to help project.

Once completed and balanced we were very happy to finally get to hang the solar system up. We hung it from the bottom of my daughters light in her bedroom. This way when the light is on it 'charges' up the glow in the dark paint so that her solar system will glow for awhile once the light is turned off.

Cute concept and neat once it is finished, it is just a very finicky project that needs a lot of adult help to complete.
