    This was great set of planets for a science project. We did not have to buy individual balls & piece together a solar system. Styrofoam balls was smooth and easy to paint. My only complaint is its not completely accurate. The sun was too small compared to the rest of the planets. Suggested number of planet was also inaccurate as Pluto isn't considered a planet anymore. Overall a great starter project but don't follow the instructions suggested on the box.

    This was bought for my nine year old daughters 3-d model project. We put painted and put the display together in less than four hours. The outside of the box has a chart that tells you what color to paint each planet, we did two coats of acrylic based paint, do not use spray paint the star foam will melt. After painting each planet a solid color we let paint dry. Then we added land to Earth and more accent colors to the other planets. Also we cut our wooden dowels as directed, then we painted them black last because the dowels can prop up planets while they dry. After dowels dry we used tacky project glue to glue the sun to the three inch base and to glue the end of each dowel into its planet. The dowels are like shirks on sticks one sharp end and the other blunt, the blunt sides need to be glued into the planet and the sharp ends are put 3/4 in into the sun. Be sure to place dowels into sun above the center of the Sun and at about a 45 degree angle, if not your model will tip over.

    Got this for my sons 4th grade project. The Styrofoam balls are smooth and so easy to paint. They don't have the crater like texture that styrofoam balls are usually made of. Easy to stick planets to the sun. We had fun making this together. The balls are durable too. You can just buy inexpensive acrylic paints to paint them. Ours came out great! Great price too! If you buy a similar one at Michaels or a craft store, they are $15.00. I would recommend this for your kids school projects!!! And it looks cool to hang in their room or set it on the base ring that it comes with. If you want to hang it up, you have to buy a separate hook for it.

    Much cheaper than buying individual styrofoam balls. Also, they are the smooth, hard styrofoam that came out looking really nice when painted with acrylic paints.

    My grandson LOVED this project & he is really not an artsy/crafty type. We used it for homeschool, during our space chapter (4th grade). It is easy enough for the child to complete on his/her own and it makes a great classroom display after completed. Highly recommend this kit.

    Kit was terrific project for my 6 year old son. He thoroughly enjoyed the process of sorting out the pieces, painting each differently, assembling with his Dad and hanging in his room. I can be a stickler on premade kits and junk-kids crafts so am very happy son enjoyed it and the finished product is something that will probably be in his room for years. It is a simple kit but for kids 4 – 10-ish its the not too detailed or complex and lets them be creative - or go simple with the decorating of each planet. Was easy enough for my son to do the most time consuming part (painting) unsupervised too (i.e., once planets were labeled). He had a ball and he is SO proud of it. Going to get one for his cousin’s 4th birthday. This will be right up her alley too!

    The styrofoam balls for these used to be rough and hard to paint. Now they are smooth and very easy to add details and paint. Can't beat the price! They were perfect for our astronomy lesson at home. Haven't hung them up yet but I plan on hanging them up from the ceiling, in order diagonally, using push pins and fishing line.
