Very Neat Addition to Son's room!

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.

Comments about Uncle Milton Solar System In My Room:

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.

        It's smaller than the picture. Doesn't work all the time. We change the battery twice the same day and the same problem.

            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.

                          Soon as we took it out of the box the light part rattled. So, we'll have to make a 35 min trip to the nearest Toys r us & exchange it. I'll give it one more try & hopefully it'll work.
