My daughter loved this more than the paleontologist kit. It was so much fun and now we've got a model of the solar system as an art piece.

This was definitely fun to do, but just like with the he moon dart one, the adhesive on the foam pieces is not strong enough. The sun will not stay on and the round sticker pops of the pump rendering it useless.
