Watch as hundreds of stars and constellations are projected onto your ceiling and walls with this home planetarium kit that transforms your room into a 360 degree space theater. Here’s a rare indoor toy that’s likely to make kids excited to get outside.
The Star Theater home planetarium can be used inside a darkened room to project a vast panorama of stars on the walls and ceilings. It comes equipped with an audio CD to guide budding astronomers through the learning process as well as a hand held "meteor maker" which allows you to reenact meteors without waiting around for decades to see them. We found the scientific information helpful, accurate, and, best of all, approachable for even novice stargazers.
The kit can also be brought outside to illuminate (rather than project) and serve as a map to the heavens. Recommended for ages 8 and up, but 6 and 7 year olds do well with this item as well. Please judge based on your child's aptitude.
