Bought this solar system for my 5 yr old son's room. He loves it! The sun is made out of the same material of Uncle Milton's Moon, although the sun doesn't have phases. I have read the reviews on other sites & most of complaints were on how loud it was when the planets rotated. I did not agree. It makes a very small "hum" when rotating.
The only 2 drawbacks that I see was: 1) The sun does not glow as bright as the Uncle Milton Moon, but it's enough. 2) This solar system does not have a timer on it, like the Moon. Would definately recommend this for an addition to a kids' room!!

I bought this for the shared bedroom of my 8yr old and 6yr old and it is SO bad. First, the details of the planets are a shrunk wrapped plastic sleeve over tiny plastic balls. THe earth, for example has a tiny strip of detail.

Second, the "rotation" is LOUD and shaky making the "planets" bounce up and down during the rotation.

Third, you have to get a ladder and unmount it from the wall to replace the batteries that die nightly.

Fourth, the tiny rods that connect the "planets" to the sun are just that, TINY, short. The picture on the product is VERY misleading and it's disappointing when you get it assembled. This thing isnt going to inspire imagination at all.

Dont waste your money.

Complete Garbage - Do NOT Buy!

    Comments about Uncle Milton Solar System In My Room:

    I bought this product along with the Uncle Milton planetarium (which is also junk) for my 5y.o. son this past Christmas. This is a complete piece of garbage and I would not recommend. If I could rate this zero stars I would. Upon unpacking I noticed how cheap the materials are - the planets are made of what seems to be a very cheap plastic wrapped in paper printed to the design of the planet (hardly looks like the planets anyway). The center piece is made out of very lightweight and cheap plastic. Comes with two toggle bolts to fasten to ceiling (doesn't even come with wood screws for those who might actually want to fasten to a ceiling joist) I didn't really like the idea of drilling two 7/16" holes in my ceiling to allow for the toggle bolts. After getting it put together and fastened to the ceiling we turned it on and found that the light bulbs in the sun are so dim you can hardly see it even with all the lights off. And the worse part is that the gear that rotates the planet doesn't make full contact with the rings that is suppose to rotate the planets, so instead of spinning like it's supposed to it just sits there and makes an annoying clicking noise and every now and then slightly rotates a few degrees. I am EXTREMELY disappointed in this product and I'm surprised that ToysRUs would even put such a cheap product on their shelves.

    It is a pretty snug fit in the bedroom, so make sure the solar system does not go supernova with your ceiling fan!

    It lives up to the expectation of the product line.

    Good educational model that demonstrates the solar system, but don't expect it to be entirely accurate.

              I returned three of these as each one was so poorly built that the gears would squeak and at one point in the rotation it would just about stop as it got caught up within it self, the gears that is NOT the planets. I wrote the company and received no help just an offer for me to return the item or send it to them for repair!

                This solar system is a great way to learn about the earth & our galaxy without the mess of other products. As a duel purpose my children have quit using a nightlight and as my daughter says they feel like they are sleeping under the stars.

                  My son is 3 and fascinated by all things space right now, so we were so excited to get this. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to our excitement. The motor gets stuck and won't spin the planets and is extremely loud. Waste of money.

                    This has been a wonderful addition to my son's room! He love astrology and this provides a great display of the solar system and also provides a night light which is soft/subtle. My son loves to look at this as he drifts off to sleep. The CD is also a nice part of this gift.
                    I'd highly recommend this !!

                    The product was suppose to educate my son. It was great if it did work. The product was defective and I returned it to the store and got a different one. It makes a scratching grinding sounds like it needs lubing. The plastic rubbing is so annoying.

                      This a cute product and a good way to open up a conversation with your kids about the solar system. Other than that I wasn't all that impressed. The pictures show this bright light that at least illuminates the surrounding planets. Not so much! The "sun" light barely lights itself up let alone anything else connected to it. It would be a lot cooler if the planets themselves lit up.
