No Pluto.

No Pluto.

Pluto is no longer classed as a planet? Or not even there?!

heat

What does it do? Is it powered by the mains?

Wish I had a house big enough for a scale model!

Pluto is classed as a dwarf planet now. Probably a good thing seeing as its elliptical orbit would have been difficult to recreate in such a fixture!

Since 2006 Pluto is no longer called a planet. It is now classed as a "Dwarf Planet", and just one of several big icy masses in the Kuiper Belt.

£20 for some balls stuck to the end of sticks. Looks like cheap rubbish to me but it will appeal to someone especially when they end up in the reduced basket

Cold - RRP is £19.99
Same as Smyth toys one (http://www.smythstoys.com/uk/en-gb/toys/arts-creativity-music/c-551/globes/p-2510/rc-illuminated-solar-system/) bought 2 years ago for £8 on offer.

Fitting requires 2 sizable holes drilling into a ceiling.
Very weak light.
Is very flimsy, thin wires, hollow thin plastic and paper discs.
Remote has to be within 4 foot to work.

it looks very similar with the same pictures but with a slightly different box so I guess it is the same

Got one of these in my 2 year old son's room and he loves it. The light is quite weak, but we use it as an alternative to a night light, so it's perfect for him. Also it's fairly noisy, but again that white noise effect helps him off to sleep. So one man's trash and all that.

The Sun takes 3 AA batteries which last about a month with daily use, so might be an idea to invest in rechargeables. It comes off the ceiling fixture easily so changing them is no bother.

Bah humbug, miserable git!

We got this for our baby for a space themed room, he loves it.

My son likes it we got one 6 months ago, easy to fit.

They should redesign this to just replace the light fixing, no battery issues then and would become the main light in a room.

Would this be ok for a 40 year old

Yes, it's a shame it's battery powered

I think you mean a 40 year old Virgin, and the answer would therefore be yes...

Not to mention it would need to be a few miles away if the scale was correct, seeing as the gas giants are so close to the inner planets I can see it's not.

Still have these in Hull for £9.99. Bought one today, will work great as a nightlight.

got one from Aldi for £20, my 4 year old boy LOVES it, nice for night time definitely, now you can find it at John Lewis for the same price. Happy Christmas!
