Bring the solar system into your home with the Orbiting Solar System kit!

You can create a mechanical model of the solar system with each planet having realistic-looking printed planet graphics. Wind it up and watch the planets revolve around the sun, just as they do in space.

There are so many amazing things beyond our planet. You'll love learning about the sun and planets with this replica of the solar system.

The kit contains everything you will need (except a pair of scissors):

  • 8 panel Full-colour Manual, including facts about each planet
  • Planet graphics
  • Wind-up motor box
  • Sun gear
  • Satellite gear
  • Reduction gear
  • Ratchet driven gear
  • Escape Wheel
  • Escapement
  • Sun axis
  • Ratchet
  • Suction Cup

Recommended for 6 and up with adult help or 8 and up on their own!

Assemble is easy with this detailed model as it uses snap-together plastic parts. Then learn how the gears and wind-up mechanism work to spin the model as well as a special type of gear, called a planetary gear that stimulates the movement of the solar system.

Learn about the planets' celestial orbits - what they look like, what order they are in, their sizes, how they revolve around the sun, and the different speeds they travel at.

If you know an amateur astronomer and want to help them explore the solar system in a hands-on way, then this is the kit is perfect!
