    I received the Geosafari Motorized Solar System for free in order to give a honest review. All opinions are 100% my own. My daughter is only 3 years old and is already interested in the solar system and so I knew she would adore this educational toy. This was very simple to put together. She loves it and doesn't mind to much but the motor is a little noisy. Tolerable, but noisy. I recommend purchasing the AC adaptor with this. As much as it engages children and they want to play with it for so long, it runs through batteries quickly. It also has a Stardome that coverts the unit into a planetarium which I think is awesome, although my daughter does not really understand it yet. I think its a great feature for when she gets a little older and cares to learn about the stars more. It does have small parts, so you must keep an eye on any younger children but I would recommend this for children under 8 as well, just because it is very educational and fun for younger kids to learn on as well.

    This is a good model to show kids the basics. I have a 6 year old and a 3 year old. This was a gift for my 6 year old boy. He has been asking questions and studying some about the planets and solar system in school. This helped to put things in perspective and show him how the solar system works. The planets on this model don't rotate on their axis. In real life, the planets move around the sun at different rates of speed and the instruction booklet with this product explains this and tells the different rates at which they rotate and revolve around the sun but when you turn it on, they all go at the same speed around the sun. Another con we found was that the instruction booklet says that an ac adapter cord is included, but ours did not have one in the box. Will have to ask customer service about that.

    It just spins in a circle, all the planets at the same speed. The planets are mostly the same size and don't even look close to the colors of the real planets. I am extremely disappointed in this.

    The general idea is good, but I think if you are going to motorize the planets, they need to function a little better. The planets seem to move at mostly the same speed, with some planets standing still intermittently. My daughter enjoyed putting it together, and we were both happy that they included Pluto.

    Birthday present for my eldest son (5) who is very much into learning everything there is to know about the planets and our solar system. Product arrived with one of two bulbs already bad. Neither the sun or the constellation hemispheres stay in place without masking tape. Motor never worked, never rotated the planets. Very disappointed little boy.

    I received this Solar System to review from Educational Insights. My youngest daughter is obsessed with just about everything in the sky. Before receiving this product she had a small push button light for her room that would project stars on the ceiling and we were both excited when we got the Solar System. Not only is it functional, but it is educational as well. I can tell her what the planets are and how they move around the sun and the best part is that she can also see it in motion with this! You can have the sun light up and just be yellow, or you can switch the top and it projects constellations on the ceiling which in my opinion is much better than just stars. She loves watching the planets circle around and loves pointing out the constellations on the ceiling. We have so much fun with this and I think it's great for all kids!

    My son loves the GeoSafari Morotized Solar System. He gets it out now and then to put it together and use it. I have also brought it to our preschool class to show them how the planets orbit the sun. Granted that they don't move in a perfect circle in real life but they get the idea that they move around. The planets themselves do not rotate on the machine while they orbit but you can educate on that fact. The replacement light bulbs are hard to find. The planets will still orbit the sun, it's just the sun that won't shine if the bulb is burnt out. Still useable. Jenna in customer service was so helpful in taking care of our questions and equipment inquiries!

    The first problem I had with this is that the screw for the battery compartment did not screw back in when I put batteries in. I heard the inner pieces fall out into the device, and had to to find my own screw that would fit to close it. Secondly, for the price I paid, I at least expected the planets to orbit in the correct speeds, not all at the same speed. I would rather spend a bit more for accuracy. The only educational value is in where the planets are in relation to each other?

    Beside the motor that is obviously a piece of trash from previous comments and my own motor failing. The 2 other gripes I have is that it could at least come with a power adapter for when the motor breaks down the planetarium will light up, instead of batteries, would lighten the sting of buying a poorly made motor. The last grip I have is where is the southern hemisphere dome for the planetarium part of it, would love to see those stars also. Just a little more and you guys got a hit!

    Solar system in motion. First off, the instructions were very well done . My 9 yr old son put this together in less then 15 min by himself . One thing he did notice was the machine itself is rather loud while it rotates. Also the light bulb is not as bright as it could.be, it's hard to see the constellations on the wall. Also it was a little hard to distinguish between which planets were which. He thought it was a very cool model. But has those ideas to pass on.
