This was a hit with the kids. It visually showed them how the galaxy is.

The kids loved the painting and the fact that the sun lights up. It was easy for them to do with just a bit of assistance and actually having to paint each planet let them become more familiar with the qualities (size/make up/orbit in relation to the sun). Comic that came along with the set was great and the meteor popper was awesome as well.
