SOLAR SYSTEM MOBILE


Our physical world is a mysterious and wondrous place; understanding where we are and how we fit into it is a mind-bending endeavour indeed. Especially for children, grasping the sheer magnitude of our universe is mind-boggling, which is why this scale model of our solar system is such an interesting, tactile model for the young, and the young at heart.

Each planet is skilfully crafted and positioned to resemble how it appears in images taken by telescopes and satellites, both individually and in relation to its neighbours, and carefully labelled. Differentiating Mars from Mercury is as easy as reading its tag! The skeleton of the mobile is fashioned from metal struts and string. Hooks allow you to connect each planet to its proper place in the system, and yes, the ringed planet Saturn comes with its own `skirt` for you to attach!

Hanging from the ceiling, this mobile is an impressive sight indeed. It brings our wide universe a little closer, and would make a great teaching tool.
