The kit was fantastic, and he loved putting it together. He LOVED going into a dark room to run a star show . There are several things that should be improved: 1 - the foam stickers barely held on, and the planetarium pieces constantly threatened to come off the ring - I ended up using scotch tape to tape them all down while he moved on to building the other pieces. 2 - the kit is great, but he could not find information on which constellations were which anywhere, not even on the tinkerzine (I checked - nada)- and I tried to find a printable, but it hasn't been so easy (still haven't succeeded) - it would be great if a one-pager with labeled constellations (just the ones on the planetarium) were provided, so he could identify the constellations in his 'star show'.

This was a fun kit and we used it as a nightlight for a while afterwards.
